Without proper football training, players would refer to the ball as a goatskin and quarterbacks would call a timeout before every Hail Mary so they could cross themselves. Prevent athletic sacrilege with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-year, all-access subscription to all of the Legends in Training program’s courses (a $99 value) from the School of the Legends.
The School of the Legends’ Legends in Training program educates athletes, coaches, and fans with in-depth football curricula for every position on the field, all taught by current and former NFL players such as Jerome Bettis, Desean Jackson, and Jason Witten. Utilizing high-definition video instruction, these highly qualified instructors pull from their experiences on the gridiron's biggest stage to offer students unique insights into strategy as well as tips on improving in-game performance and friendships with mascots. Throughout the courses, pupils plow through a blockade of multiple classes and quizzes, one test, and one final exam. Along with position-specific strategies, the program also covers overall game aspects including conditioning, nutrition, and safety. Students graduate from courses armed with an invaluable knowledge of the game, a custom playbook, an award certificate, and a social-status badge comparable to a cub scout’s certified s'more-maker patch.
The School of the Legends also houses an online social network where football enthusiasts can interact with more than 1,400 NFL stars. Members can follow the players’ day-to-day activities on the live feed or submit questions to legends such as Pittsburgh’s Jerome Bettis, asking him what tactics he employs to stay fast and keep his thumbs from jealously trying to steal his Super Bowl XL ring from his fourth digit.
