Football Fans Launch New 2015 NFL Super Bowl Theme Song

"That's Football" Written and Composed by James Smythe and Joe Sharino

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 30, 2015) - "That's Football" an original song by James Smythe and Joe Sharino hit YouTube today. The song, which footballs fans hope will find its way into the stadiums from coast to coast, will surely bring some swagger to the NFL. Inspired by Frank Sinatra, composer and musicians James Smythe and Joe Sharino set-out to bring a little old school swing and toe tapping lingo to pep-up fans during games.

"We have always been huge football fans, ever since I played at Stanford I wanted to do this. We've had so much support and now we are relying on the rest of NFL nation to hopefully get behind 'That's Football.' It would be neat to add a 7th inning stretch to football with 'That's Football,'" says co-composer James Smythe.
