American Football For Dummies

I'm so dumb when it comes to American Football that I don't even know who those two guys are in the picture. Earlier this morning was the Superbowl, or the National Football League finals. Or the greatest one-time television event in the whole of America. Or that one tv event every year that Americans go crazy. It was fun to get live updates regarding the Colts vs. Saints finale. However, it is still too American for my liking.

Everywhere else in the world except the United States and my country the Philippines, Football is called Football, not Soccer. Here in Manila, if you would say "I wanna play football", it means you would wanna score a touchdown, not a goal.

American Football is so American, you would hardly recognize it being an international game. It is quite unlike Baseball and Basketball, two sports which have garnered an impressive non-American roster. Plus I like rugby more than I like American Football though. Maybe because the New Zealand All Black were pretty awesome.

Just one tip to a fellow American Football noob (I mean you): You have to at least be familiar with Reggie Bush or else you really got no clue. He is the biggest celebrity football player followed closely by the likes of Tony Romo, Tom Brady and to some degree, Hank Baskett. All men got celebrities as partners and they all got media mileage beyond ESPN and other sports channels.

And please be familiar with the words touchdown, and quarterback, and penalties, and running back, and touchback, and tackle, and yeah, Superbowl. Chances are, it is American Football that they're talking about.

Would you want to know more stuff about the American Football? Here is their wiki page for that.
