The top hit for “AFC” on Google is the “Asian Football Confederation”. The top hit for “NFC” on Google is “Near Field Communication”.
Alas, neither of those two is a participant in this week’s throwdown.
With the settling of the long drawn out, will-they-or-won’t-they circus between the NFL and NFLPA, there has been a frenzy of (American) football activity of late. If you follow any of the talking heads or watch any of them, they’ve been practically giddy talking about FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL.
With a lot of big questions answered last week – Where will Kevin Kolb go? Where will Nnamdi Asomugha land? Will Tom Brady cut his hair (it looks like he did)? What will happen to Carson Palmer? – and loads of others that followed – When did the Eagles get all crafty (hello, they’re EAGLES!)? Should we even have a season, since everyone assumes the Eagles will win? Oh wait, we should, because the Pats are also early favorites despite not having won a Super Bowl since the 2004 season? – it’s been a busy time.
With football just eight days away, we’re celebrating with a three-round set of pop culture throwdowns. We’ll start with the conferences.
No cute choices this week, but the criteria is still your own.
