Figuring out the Numbers in Football with Eric Zweig | CNC104

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about football? Most people think about their favorite player, the tailgating, the crisp air of fall, or the stadium food. But what if I told you that math and numbers are a HUGE part of football?!? Eric Zweig, author of Nat Geo Kids’ newest book, It’s A Numbers Game! Football joined me today to talk about how math and numbers are not just something in a textbook but how it is an essential factor in the game.

About the Guest:

Originally from Toronto, Eric Zweig grew up as a fan of the CFL’s Argonauts, the NHL’s Maple

Leafs, and the MLB’s Blue Jays. When he broke his wrist as a young boy, Eric

got Argonauts quarterback and future NFL star Joe Theismann to sign his cast.

Eric has been writing professionally about sports and sports history since

1985. He worked for a small Toronto-based publisher affiliated with the NHL for

more than 20 years and has written more than 40 books for adults and for

children since 1992. Eric currently lives in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada.

About the Host:

Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full-time job as a Productivity Coach. As a busy mom of three and the founder of Chaos N’ Cookies, keeping moms from crumbling is my main objective. After gaining 10+ years of experience as a Director of Marketing helping build multiple 6 & 7-figure businesses for other women I’ve created the Chaos Control System to equip moms to overcome their own objections so they can live the life they want to live and start that business they have always wanted. The Family Playbook, or standard operating procedure, is the tool every mama needs to save time and stress-less when chaos ensues at home.

For new biz owners, I also help simplify systems on social media and other business platforms to automate processes to get their business up and running quickly and efficiently with how-tos and hands-on coaching. I have helped hundreds of women to be more productive and self-sufficient in their homes and businesses allowing them to reclaim control of the chaos.
