Welcome to our podcast, I Pledge Allegiance to Red Zone! This podcast is hosted by Samantha Ellman and Shaun Tenansnow. A bit about us: we met in undergrad, and started dating at the beginning of the pandemic. We now live together in Los Angeles, California!
I Pledge Allegiance to Red Zone is a bit of an experiment for us. Shaun, who has watched football for about eight years now and listens to hours of football podcasts a week, invited Sam to join his family's fantasy football league. Now, Sam knows close to nothing about football, besides the fact that Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes are quarterbacks and the 49ers are in the Bay Area. In the fantasy league, though, Sam is tied for the second-best team, and Shaun is the worst team in the league. This got us thinking: does it really matter if you know anything about football to do well in sports betting and fantasy leagues?
