A Video Guide to American Football
The game that is super is coming up on February 2, but before we get there, we have to go through the Pro Bowl rigamaroll, but how did we get here? Watch and learn.
I am a huge football fan. I grew up watching it with my Dad. He work weird hours, so when he was home, I wanted to hang out with him and even if that meant sitting through an entire day of football, then so be it. I didn't get it at first, but the more I watched, the more I understood, and now there is nothing better than hanging out in my jersey and no pants watching football on a Sunday. Or a Saturday. Or a Monday. Or a Thursday.
Every year on Big Sunday, my parents friends would throw a party. We kids weren't actually allowed in the room where the game was on. We got to stay in the basement, jumping up and down on the couch, filling our faces with chips and popcorn and candy and pop. It was a great day and I still look forward to the tradition. Only, pop is now beer and I usually stay home and I don't have to put on pants. Oh, and I don't jump on the couch anymore.
If you aren't familiar with one of the greatest sports ever in the history of life, but don't want to look stupid asking questions after every play, here is a video guide to help you understand American football.
