Run Connor!! Go long!


I'm sure I mentioned that when it comes to sports I'm pretty clueless. I keep having nightmares that Connor will be a star football player and I will be sitting at the game totally clueless as to whats going on, or even worst cheering for the wrong team. I'd like to say that nothing like that has ever happeend before but if I did I would be lying.

Nerf makes great sports gear which is not only fun for non sports people for me but easy for the whole family to use including the smallest members such as Connor. The new Nerf Pro Grip Football is no exception! Made from Nerf's signature soft foam insides and a super easy to grip and easy to throw textured outside its easy enough that even I can throw it pretty far. Which is saying a lot as seeing me throw a ball.. any ball... is almost laughable.

The weird part is I'm not sure how, maybe its a boy gene, but the moment we opened the box and I got the Nerf Pro Grip out of the packaging, Connor spent the next few hours running around the room with the ball tucked under his arm and then spiking it down followed by a happy dance. You'd swear he had been watching tons of football and was mimicking some of the guy's touch down dances, but I assure you he has never seen a football game in his life. I think I better hurry up and learn how to play football so I know whats going on as I'm fairly positive my boy will be a sports nut as he gets older.

You can pick up a Nerf Pro Grip in several football teams, your bound to find one you like, over at the Hasbro toy shop!

I have two Nerf Pro Grips to give away to our readers!

I am surprised they don't have a Cowboys football. My next choice would be the Oakland Raiders football. Our kids would love this and so would their daddy! Thanks!!

The Chicago Bears football is my favorite!

Seeryus Mama said...

I'd have to say the football with the NFL logo would be best in our home!! My son likes a lot of teams!!

Michele said...

Well, if I won this would be for my nephew, Cameron, and he lives in Washington State. I don't see that team. I noticed that the Gray and Black Spiderman one was the same price so I don't know if that's an option or not, but just in case, that would be the one I'd pick. If not, then I live in San Jose, and the closest team would be the Oakland Raiders. I'm like you and don't know how to play football, but I hope you learn soon so you can join in the fun with your son!!

Thanks so much!

silverhartgirl said...

Sandy said...

Jenn S. said...

Pittsburgh Steelers

LdyLopes2002 said...

I couldn't find the choices either. I even put Nerf Pro Grip in search :-(
I would like any football really.But if there is a Broncos, or Steelers, or Packers, one of those would be great !!!!!

cstironkat said...

I like the Giants, thank you for the giveaway.

chromiumman said...

oakland raiders

Jenny said...

Well, I'm not too sure on the team because I'm really only familiar with college teams. Let's go with the Chicago Bears :-) I am sports-clueless too, so I'd like to see how far I can throw it! My husband would like it and my daughter could pick it up and run around with it.

I've looked all over as well and can't seem to find it. My son would like this in the Chicago Bears team.

If I have to pick a team, I'd say the Chicago Bears. The one I really like the best of what they have available is the NERF PRO SHOP PRO GRIP Football (NFL) -- the NFL Version itself is so cool, and great colors!

I don't see the Steelers! My husband would never allow any other team in the house so I would have to say the generic NFL one is the other one I would choose.

My son (and his Dad) would be over the moon if I could find a Carolina Panthers one but I didn't. I wish I could!! He's six and just started playing football with his Dad in the backyard. My husband actually went to try to pick him up a nerf football a couple of days ago and couldn't find one at the store. So, this is the perfect contest! Since there's no Panthers I would have to say the regular NFL logo one or maybe the "NERF PEYTON MANNING PRO GRIP Football with FREE WATER BOTTLE" My address is the profile and thanks so much! :)
