"WFL" Wine Football League will be Revealed on 9-10-12
September 4, 2012- The WFL, Wine Football League will be announced to the public on Monday September 10, 2012 prior to the season-opener double header of Monday Night Football on ESPN.
The Wine Football League or the WFL is not a pro football league that is looking to rival the NFL. It's a creative "Football & Wine" marketing campaign created by The Wine'tastic Mile of Baltimore and Dunkadelic Sports Marketing.
The NFL is composed of 32 teams in 31 U.S. cities. The WFL will give each team a wine themed nickname to help promote the "Football & Wine" culture with the NFL. It's for wine lovers to follow their favorite teams with a wine inspired nickname.
There seems to be a never ending amount of beer commercials during the NFL regular-season and playoffs. Wine is never mentioned, but there are millions of NFL fans who enjoy watching games with a nice Cabernet or Chardonnay says, Derrick E. Vaughan the creator of the WFL.
When you go to a big-time steakhouse or upscale seafood restaurant during games or after games you see the wine drinkers enjoying their wine with a 20 oz. cowboy ribeye or grilled branzino fish, Vaughan continues.
The idea came to Vaughan a sports guru while he was thinking about the 40th Anniversary of the 1972 Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were the last NFL franchise to go undefeated for an entire season and during the playoffs in 1972.
Chris Berman of ESPN would say each year after the last NFL team would taste defeat the '72 Dolphins are popping the champagne realizing that their record of 17-0 still stands for another year.
