Lombardi gaffe led to Mara’s split with ex
In theory, 33-year-old actress Kate Mara is one of the most connected NFL women on the planet. Her uncle owns the New York Giants. Her mother’s family owns the Pittsburgh Steelers.
That’s NFL royalty right there. And it puts her in some interesting company and situations related to the monolithic league. One funny one years ago was with a British ex-boyfriend, Mara explained on her appearance on “Conan” on TBS. The boyfriend knew little of the NFL but did — as Brits are wont to do — love soccer.
