The NFL business model is to continue to expand the reach of professional football world wide. There are several countries that have semi-pro versions of American football, but nothing close to the NFL since the World League existed. Every year a couple games are played over there now where previously there was only one. Originally […]

Every sport has an all-star game of some sort. Some are played with purpose and others are strictly as an exhibition. For instance, the MLB All-Star game is played to determine home field advantage in the playoffs while the NFL Pro-Bowl means absolutely nothing. The thing is that it used to. Sure you used to […]

FOOTBALL! Always an exciting time in our neck of the woods. The rivalries are deep and at times without mercy. There will be trash talk. There will be hurt feelings. In the end though, there will be food and beers and everyone gets along again. The NFL this weekend had a slew of great playoff […]

As a nice distraction from the game at halftime the Vikings had a corgi race with the dogs wearing Santa riders on them. Needless […]

This last weekend was full of football! There was college games that changed the balance of the playoffs and rivalry games that went down to the wire. The NFL was in full swing with games on Thanksgiving Day and then again on Sunday, and in some states there was high school football wrapping up their […]
