    Let me see if I can explain football in a way that makes sense to you.

    You have the NFL which is National Football League, this is the organization in which the teams play in. The NFL is split into two different conferences, National and American. The National conference is made mostly of teams that have been playing since the 30's (or there about). The American conference is mostly made of teams that started in a rival organization (the American Football League or AFL) in 1960. In the early 70's the two leagues merged, forming one league under the banner of the NFL.

    There are 16 teams in each conference, each conference is broken into 4 divisions of 4 teams each, divided mostly by geographic region, North, South, East and West. Each of the 32 teams in the NFL play 16 games during the season. At the end of the season, the best 6 teams from conference enter into the playoffs. After a few weeks of playoffs, the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC) each have a conference champion. These conference champions then meet in the Super Bowl to decide which team is the league champion.

    There are no state teams like you have in rugby, soccer or cricket. I think our professional sports teams would be looked at like club teams in those sports. Our teams are located in mostly large cities (San Francisco, Dallas, New York City, Chicago, Miami, etc.).

    Thank you for your comment on my page and on my blog post. I am glad to encourage others where I can :)

    It definitely is a fine line between too much food and too little, and I still struggle to find that line! I have cinnamon everyday, I use it to try and blunt the insulin response when I have something sweet.

    My mom is determined. She spent about 3 years being told by her Dr. that it was her back giving her problems, then she switched Dr.s and the new one told her that she had the worse pair of hips that he had ever seen! Within a couple of months her first hip replacement was scheduled and now 5 months later her 3nd one is done!

    And yes, the Super bowl is the apex of the American Football season, where the best team from the National Conference plays the best team from the American Conference for the championship. It is a huge deal here in the states and it's one of the most viewed television programs across the world. Sometimes I forget that friends of mine in Europe or Down Under aren't as connected to the sport as we Americans are :)
