Welcome to Water Cooler Football - where football and networking meet to have fun!

You’re at a party with a football game on, people cheer and you have no idea what happened – do you feel left out?

At a meeting someone says, “let’s do an end run” – do you feel lost?

When you hear “football” do you think people mean soccer?

If you don't know how to watch a football, you maybe left out. This can have a negative impact on your career and perhaps social life.
