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.

Lia said...

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

Jennifer McKenzie said...

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

Janice said...

Wow, that's a lot of facts.

Happy TT.

Interesting list!

The Bumbles said...

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 Tyler said...

Paige,

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