The NFL is marketing some new fashion-forward gear for women under the slogan, "It's My Team," and one of the high-powered ladies modeling for it is former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

And that might be the absolute best that a 57-year-old can possibly look in a Cleveland Browns jersey (with the possible exception of Brandon Weeden). I'd imagine that Josh Cribbs feels pretty flattered, seeing his No. 16 on Condi.

Alongside her is Serena Williams, sporting a Dolphins T-shirt. In her case, the "It's My Team" tagline carries extra significance, since the Dolphins are literally her team. Her and sister Venus are part owners of the franchise. She rocks her NFL gear pretty well, too.

Melania Trump and Peta Murgatroyd will also appear in the ad campaign.

Here's more from the Daily Mail.

Rhiannon Madden, NFL's director of apparel, said: 'We want to show that you can be a [football] fan by what you wear to work, going to the gym or out at night with girlfriends.

'It's also a message of empowerment. It's your team — not your guy's team,' she said.

I didn't know the Browns were anybody's team. But, of course, the male gender has no monopoly on suffering with each crushing Browns defeat, so if you'd like in on the fun, ladies, I say the more the merrier.

Not just with the Browns or Dolphins, either. You could also feel free to like a good team.
