I don’t get American football. It’s such a long game with so many stops and starts. LOL – It’s probably just as well I’m an ocean away to avoid the rotten tomatoes. I prefer rugby any day! 🙂

Happy TT.

Go Steelers. I LOVE football, thanks for the trivia, even if the fact about my team is depressing. Maybe next year Cleveland.

Awesome! I was rooting for the Saints this year because they haven’t been.
I can’t wait for Sunday!

I’m curious what non-SB show cracked the top 10 most watched show! My guess is the M*A*S*H series finale.

Here’s another SB fact – all 3 of the Patriots SB victories were decided by an Adam Vinatieri field goal.

Paige,

Where did you find the football on the “Thirteen” banner? He is hot! Are there any more of him?
