While winter means cold, ice and shoveling driveways, it also means Snow Football! Playing football with your boys is fun any time of year, but winter’s when you get to take out more of your aggression. Think about it, not only are you wearing poofy, padded clothing, but you’re also landing on poofy, padded snow. Or throwing your buddy onto it. Or dive-tackling your other buddy onto it.

The point is, snow is nature’s jock strap and cup, so you can get crazy and have more fun. Then one day you can tell your kids about how fun playing snow football is so they can program a backyard snow setting into “Madden ’32.” However, to keep snow football fun, there are rules of etiquette to follow. Here are five things to keep in mind for your next game, and some video examples so you’ll know what we’re talking about.

1. Make Sure There’s Enough Snow

2. Pile-Ons Are OK

3. Wreck Your Body In The Name Of Victory

4. Play Iron Man: Don’t Just Stand Around On D

5. Don’t Lead Your Buddy Into S***
