About 30 million viewers, both men and women, tuned into last Saturday's playoffs on NBC (http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/nbc-scores-more-viewers-cbs-gets-higher-ratings-in-prime-time-last-week-nielsen-says/2013/01/08/a2c43996-59cc-11e2-b8b2-0d18a64c8dfa_story.html) leaving everyone with concerns about calorie consumption, but Dr. Bonnie says, “Making love has no calories. In fact, being intimate during halftime will actually burn some.”

Dr. Bonnie encourages partners to touchdown during the football playoffs. A nice pillow fight and some tackling after the second quarter is high energy play and will bring endorphins to a full-time high. Adding in a 30 second kiss will also bring on a different rush from oxytocin, the cuddle hormone. If you can't lick em join them. A savvy woman knows how much football means to her guy whether married or single.

Dr. Bonnie strongly suggests that being intimate during football halftime is a healthy way to connect with your sports lover. The Cleveland Clinic believes a healthy sexual relationship can positively affect all aspects of life, (http://health.yahoo.net/articles/sexual-health/have-satisfying-sex-despite-chronic-pain-0). Many women and even men feel neglected when their partner is glued to the television and shows more devotion for Peyton Manning (http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/53708/can-manning-break-cold-spell) than they do to them. However, Dr. Bonnie stresses, “Do not get mad when your partner is engrossed with the game. They will love and appreciate more by supporting their passion.” Here are some of her smart heart tips that will help get the pom-poms out for the first time in years this playoff season.

Be supportive and stay on the sidelines when the game is in motion. As her husband Jeff says, "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach and football." Partners should try out some new recipes that will leave their lover mouth watering for more than just the seven-layer dip. Coming home with some hot chocolate, which contains PEA, is an upper and with some fluffy marshmallows they are great aphrodisiacs for touching down.

To really impress the partner, husband or boyfriend, do a little research. Start reading newspapers, Sports Illustrated, playoff feed on Twitter or even download the NFL ’12 app to learn more about stats, players and predictions for the next Vince Lombardi Trophy winner. Dr. Bonnie says, “Learning about the game will make him adore more than enough to remember this year's Valentine's day. It may even get a proposal, if it hasn't already.” Sharing football without complaining, that's a lifetime achievement award.

Dr. Bonnie cautions, football time is no time for talking, especially about serious subjects. Don’t discuss any heavy topics that might instigate an argument that would ruin any chance of a halftime show. Also, competing with the announcer is another football faux pas. Besides all the chanting and swearing, notice that men are usually pretty quiet when a big play is under review. Let there only be one announcer.

Everybody loves the commercials, even non sports fan, should take time to enjoy them together. Good commercials will stimulate good conversation, but leave them until after the game. Be surprised about what will come with some behavior modification. Practicing these running drills will ensure to make halftime, your time.

So go get the Bronco to saddle up, steer the Texans in the right direction, and get that big Patriot to get ready for battle this Saturday and Sunday for the NFL playoffs.

Football couples should follow this relationship advice to help make up and not break up during the playoffs.
