On if she’s ever suited up for a football game, Kelly replied to the mag, “I played in a girls’ powder-puff game during the ‘Friday Night Lights’ days. I was the quarterback. The ball was snapped to me, and I jammed my finger! I think I’m a pretty tough girl. I like to get down and dirty. But I was like, ‘Man, I jammed my finger just catching the ball?’ I didn’t tell anyone and played through it.”
As for her favorite NFL team, Kelly said, “I’m a New England Patriots fan even though I’m from L.A.”
What does she wear to games? “Jeans, a T-shirt, and sneakers. If you wear heels to a game, I envy you, because I don’t have that stamina.”
