  Hi, Ms. BB
So you got white stuff and it only stayed on the brown grass? The lawn needs it. We should get rain this w/e and know the plants will benefit. Have to see if it makes a dent in the drought.

Hmmm, think when your dad said 'bird' he wasn't referring to you or the flock. Most of us are parrots and not what people put in ovens, whew! (Good to err on the side of caution though and hide.)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a lot of food and the leftovers are being enjoyed.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Ms BB
tell your dad to eat tofurkey. that way no bird goes into the oven. tofurkey is tofu shaped like a turkey. not sure what it tastes like but if your hungry enough anything tastes good.

mom drove 40 miles to her nieces house to celebrate thanksgiving. dad stayed home because he is sick. mom had a very nice time. our house was very quiet while mom was gone. we are very thankful that mom came home.

  Hi Ms BB
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We woke up to a dark snowy morning with big huge snowflakes falling down from the sky!Mom was panicking as she kept watching to see if it would stick or not and thank goodness it didn't!Mom quickly packed all the things she was taking over to Nana's for Thanksgiving,the cornbread she made some alphabet macaroni for Nana's turkey soup,and then she got all our carriers out and we all got to go with them!We all got to stay in Bella's room with our cousins and the skin sibs came over and after Mom got us all settled in she went out to the kitchen and helped Nana get things ready to be cooked for the dinner.It didn't take long for Nana's house to smell sooo good with turkey and stuffing and all the pies that they put in the oven and corn bread,rolls,broccoli,butternut squash,mashed potatoes,cranberry sauce,gravy and was it so tantalizing!We all even got to have some pomegranates,oranges and apples to snack on while everyone ate the turkey!It was a nice quiet day we all had together!
I want to tell you all just how thankful I am to have you as my friend,you all mean the world to me and I just can't put into words how much you have changed my and my Mom's and Nana's world!We are all so grateful for the love and caring you give us each and everyday,the true warm friendship that you just can't find anywhere else!You are the real meaning of love and friendship and we are all so blessed and honored to be walking in the sunshine of your love!
Oh Ms BB!You are such a good birdie and you haven't done anything to warrant you to be shoved in the oven!Come with me,I'll help to hide you really good!No one's gonna cook you as long as I'm around I'll keep you safe!
Wishing you a greyt Thanksgiving and we are all wishing that your world is shining bright today and everyday with love as you have made ours!We love you all soo soo very much!

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
I hope your Thanksgiving is just perfect! I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Miss BigBaby!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …

Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 09:36.19 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.

I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

À la prochen frois, mon amie,
[Until next time, My Featheriend]

*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

  Hello BB~~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It's still grey, wet and windy at my house! We have the fireplace on and it's very cozy inside! Mom tells me that if it were sunshine and warm all the time we wouldn't be able to use the fireplace!!
They had the first big snow up on the mountain today and it was a mess!! Snoqualmie pass is the main road between west and east out here and a lot of people use it. There were cars spinning all over the place! Some people didn't check the pass conditions before they went so they didn't have chains with them. Everyone who uses that road knows that you always check the pass conditions no matter what time of the year it is!
Mom is going to get the pantry straightened out today since it looks like something exploded in there!hehehehehe We have too much stuff and need to get some meals cooked. Mom only works 2 nights and then she'll be off 2 nights so we will have our Thanksgiving then. She got a ham and a turkey since they were great deals! Most stores don't do the cheap turkeys anymore but mom found one where she got the turkey for 48 cents a pound! I'm just looking forward to the corn bread! Maybe some pumpkin pie too!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a hug for you!

  `Ü´ Greetings & OH! MY!! GOODness!!!
Miss BigBaby!

Does anybirdy ELSE realize how much there is to KNOW about FootBall??? Why … I had no idea how much I DIDN’T KNOW until Momma consented to help me learn for the sake of my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown, and sharing her passion for The Game so that I might understand all of the HoopLa that I hear coming from the area of the television every time she watches a Game!!


Well! As promised, we shall begin our investigation into the individual responsibilities of the Players in each Position today. But I fear it will never fit into one day’s note. So we shall simply spread it out over several days so that you, My Featheriend, can take it all in and not fall asleep before you learn what you need to know!

You may recall from our earlier information that the NFL limits active, uniformed Players to 45 per Team on Game Day.

Each FootBall Team has 11 Players per side: 11 on Offense and 11 on Defense. Teams are allowed to play with fewer than 11 Players (and for the LIFE of me I can’t IMAGINE WHY they would WANT to???), but they are penalized for having more than 11 Players on the Field during play. Rarely, a few eggsceptionally talented Players may play both Offense and Defense in the NFL. (And I do believe that we have a few of those eggsceptionally talented Birdie FootBall Players on the Indians and Pilgrims Team Rosters!)

A typical NFL Game Day roster includes three QuarterBacks, a Punter, a PlaceKicker, a Kick Return Specialist, eight Offensive LineMen, four Running Backs, five Receivers, two Tight Ends, seven Defensive LineMen, seven LineBackers, and six Defensive Backs. (The NONSTARTING Players – that is, those who are not among the 22 or so Players who are listed in the Starting LineUp – are considered Reserves, and many of them are Specialists.)

In the NFL, an additional Player can be in uniform, but he must be a QuarterBack and enter the Game only after the other QuarterBacks have been removed from the Game because of injury. When this eggstra QuarterBack, or 46th Player, enters the Game, the other QuarterBacks are deemed ineligible and cannot return to that Game even if they are healthy.

With our very own 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game approaching in a little over a week, and Players needing and wanting to know how to practice to yield the most effective results, when we next meet I shall delve into the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

Before I depart this evening, though, I do wish to thank you, once again, for your wonderful continuing support of my efforts to be your Christmas Queen on BirdChannel. I am truly beginning to feel the eggscitement of the prospect of having my dream realized. You and your featheriendship are appreciated more than you know.

A bientot, mon amie,

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
Miss BigBaby!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was in the 20's here again this morning but we are going to be up near 50 this afternoon. 50 feels pretty good after 20!
Laundry is being done again today. Just clothes so I won't be helping out. Mom needs to get the turtle tank cleaned out so I'll keep an eye on them while she does that.
Mom saw the ad for Walmart's Black Friday sale on Facebook so she clicked on it to see what they are going to have. Half way through it there is an ad for Target!hahahaha I wonder if Target bought that space on purpose? There were other ads too but the Target one was funny! We checked out the Target Black Friday ad but there were no ads for Walmart.
If mom didn't have to work every single Black Friday, she'd be sleeping in! Mom's store always has socks at half off on Black Friday so a lot of people come in for that. They also serve donuts, juice and coffee so it makes it a more relaxed atmosphere and hopefully fun for everyone who comes in at 5am.
Looks like electronics, toys and DVD/Blu Rays are what everyone has on the front pages. Dad would faint if he heard mom say this, but how much electronics do you really need? I guess with as fast as it all becomes obsolete they will never run out of customers.
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love You ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Ms BB from Jennifer
Well we finally got our 1st measurable snow fall, but not nearly like our buddies to the North, Chyna, Kaji, and Hulkyman, and all our dear pals in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan! As it always is, our first snow is beautiful, but the sad part is still to come! Our aunt Denise loves this crap, but they will be coming to get her one of these days, so glad her insanity did not carry over to the rest of her loving McFamily! We are planning a pleasant and peaceful day at home with each other, I hope yours will be equally rewarding, there is nothing like close friends and family on Sunday, give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas group

  Hi Ms. BB
I could take over if your dad doesn't hear from the bird who's supposed to be there. I can have turkeys running around, can't I? I love those guys!
Mom took the dogs for their spa treatment today, then went to a meeting at the center. She's home right now, but the dogs are still at the salon. The meeting went a lot longer than she anticipated, but a lot of good things were accomplished. When mom first volunteered at the center, there were probably 20 volunteers, one full time staff (Jill), and one part time staff person. Today there are 3 full time staff and one part time for rehabilitation, a paid education person, a paid volunteer coordinator, and about 60 volunteers.
When mom first started 12 years ago, there was a volunteer association which collected dues from the volunteers and used that money to buy things for the center which was running on a shoestring budget. Each officer had duties that have basically been taken over by paid staff today. So today at the meeting, while the volunteer association will remain, the volunteers decided to do away with the officers, and just have 2 liaison people to work with staff, and one person to collect voluntary donations. There haven't been dues for about 8 years, because they found out they couldn't ask for dues, but people contribute to the fund anyway. This year that money was used to buy a new microwave and blender for the food prep area, as well as some other necessary things which were not covered by Jill's budget. Anyway, mom is happy with the result. She was president this year, but really didn't have much to do, since paid staff did most of the presidential duties. There's no sense having an empty title.
The solution mom worked out for the wood turtle who keeps trying to escape is still working, so that is a good thing. Before you ask, he isn't releasable, because he's missing his 2 front feet and walks on stubs. He keeps trying to get out of his cage, though, and that's not safe for him. The solution was simple: duct tape a pillowcase to the lower part of the cage, so he can't get his little sore armpits stuck on the metal bars any more.
It's really getting cold here, we wish the arctic blast would just go away, but with climate change, that's not likely. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Happy Thanksgiving, Peppino, Happy Thanksgiving, Divo & Falco, Happy Thanksgiving.

  HI ya BB~
I hope you are all enjoying the day! It warmed up here! Yesterday is was 25 today it was 29!hahahahahaha They are spreading deicer in the parking lots around here even though it's dry and not suppose to rain at all. I have been enjoying having the fireplace on. Merlin seems to like it too because he keep plopping right in front of it!
Mom has been working with Mandy to get her to use the wee wee pads out on the balcony. Mom had to carry her upstairs again last night and she is pretty heavy. Not sure how long mom's back will last!hehehehehe There are some pads at mom's work called Target pads which have a scent on them and the dog knows what to do on the pad! They are an As Seen On TV product but mom is going to try them anyway. Mandy did fine on the stairs this morning but you never know when she is going to slip and then freak out.
Mom goes back to work tonight. 7 days before she is off again but that means only 7 days until Mockingjay Part 1 comes out! At least she has something to look forward to!
Then she will have to wait a whole year before part 2 comes out!!
I hope your day is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello BB~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It is just beautiful here but it's cold! It was only 25 this morning! We put the fireplace on this morning and just had to put it back on because it was getting below 70 again. Mom likes to keep it around 73 for me. The turtles tank is right next to the fireplace so I think they enjoy the warmth too!
Mom has chili cooking in the crockpot so I know there will be corn bread to go with it!YUM! I'm watching Rio while mom gets some chores done. I know she is going to do more cooking this afternoon so I hope there is more good stuff for me! She has already finished up Mandy's stew and has been slicing apples for a pie. I like apple pie!! She was off last night and is off tonight so she is trying to get some meals done ahead of time. She tells me it makes life easier! I say it make life more yummy!hehehehehe
Mom got a card from the mechanic who fixed our transmission today. It has a turkey on it with a sign that says "Eat Ham". I don't think Pippo thought that was very funny at all!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Ms BB
we had a beautiful day. it was in the low 70s. tomorrow the arctic blast is suppose to hit.

mom got an emil today from walmart confirming a trac phone online download ,which mom never bought, using a charge card mom doesn't even own. after fighting with the robot on walmarts phone customer service mom finally was able to speak to a person who mom couldn't understand, who didn't understand what mom was talking about. on top of that the billing address was for texas. to top it all off mom doesn't even have a cell phone. mom wasn't haPPY SO SHE called the credit card company who had no record of any transaction taken place since mom doesn't have a charge card with them. this whole thing makes absolutely no sense. she then called walmart customer service back and said maybe walmart accidentally put moms email on someone else account. walmart said they have corrected the problem and no one can use moms email including mom. mom said what if i want to buy something from and the customer service rep said mom will have to get another email. in the meantime walmart told mom not to delete the emails from walmart which leads mom to believe nothing has been done except to ban mom from walmart.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Miss BB,
Thank you for the reminder but mom only has her tele for Internet and can't do any pictures so she will ask Dixie's mom if she could do a picture.

I'll let you know when and if I can get it.

Here's a vote for you!

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy Weekend Miss BigBaby!
And how are you faring thus far on this lovely Saturday, My Featheriend? In my last post, I alluded to the familiar saying, “Man [and LadyBirds and their mommas] plan, and God laughs!” Well, Father God is having a BELLY LAUGH today on The K Kritter Korral!!!

The first thing this morning, on a day that Momma was absolutely certain would be a day in which we could easily visit each of my featheriends at a leisurely pace, she needed to phone our Kittys’ Veterinary Hospital once a-g-a-i-n and make an appointment for a DIFFERENT KITTY from last week’s visit to be seen immediately. This morning it was Mr Larry Kitty who was having difficulties and throwing up multiple times; and it concerned Momma greatly. Momma and Daddy took him to see Dr Ken at the kitties’ new Triangle Clinic in Durham and once again Dr Ken gave our kitty an injection to make him feel better. It does seem to be working, and Momma is more at ease about the situation now. But the whole turn of events has, once a-g-a-i-n, set us behind schedule.

It sounds like there are lots of wonderful, FuN activities happening at The Kissing Booth, Miss BigBaby! Thank you so much for taking time out from your busy day there to call on me and support my efforts to become December's Bird of the Month. It is eggstremely sweet of you.

Now, without further ado, I shall move immediately to Part II of “The History of the NFL”. Yesterday we talked a bit about how the League was born, and how it reached its current structure. Today we shall take a brief look at how the Teams are regulated and Championship Records from previous Seasons.

to have up to 53 players during the regular season, but only 46 can be active (eligible to play) on game days. Teams are given exclusive rights to sign free agents* that have three or fewer seasons in the league, but free agents that have been in the league at least four years can sign with any team of their choosing. Each team is subject to a salary cap**.

The champions of the most recent season, the 2013 season, are the Seattle Seahawks, who defeated the Denver Broncos by a score of 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. The team with the most championships is the Green Bay Packers, who have won 13 championships. The team that currently has the second most Super Bowl championships is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have won six.

In an earnest effort to keep my notes to a minimum, I shall bring this portion of our investigation into FootBall to a close for today. I hope you have enjoyed learning a little bit of the foundation of America’s BIGGEST Sport. I most certainly have enjoyed bringing it to you.

Have a lovely day. A bientot, mon amie [See you soon, My Featheriend]

PS: Momma says that we will most likely be taking a break from visiting my Featheriends on Sunday. Rest assured, however, that just as you are so kind and loyal as to stop by and at least cast your vote to assist in my Quest for the Crown, I shall also return the kindness and drop off a vote for each of you. It is my pleasure to do so!


*free agent – A player who is eligible to sign with any club or franchise, i.e. not under contract to any specific team. The term is also used in reference to a player who is under contract at present, but who is allowed to solicit contract offers from other teams. In some circumstances, the free agent's options are limited by league rules. (The term came into wider use after the league stopped using a "reserve clause", which provided a repetitive option for a club to renew the contract for one or more years but did not allow the player to terminate it.)

**salary cap – An agreement or rule that places a limit on the amount of money that a team can spend on player salaries. The limit exists as a per-player limit or a total limit for the team's roster, or both. (The league implemented salary caps both as a method of keeping overall costs down and to ensure parity between teams so wealthy teams cannot entrench dominance by signing many more top players than their rivals.)

Greetings & Good Friday Morning, Miss BigBaby.

Once again, what Momma and I had planned for today’s note has been foiled by circumstance! However, THIS time, it is a HAPPY circumstance. Let me eggsplain. The first thing I had intended to do was to eggstend my parrotsonal invitation to you to hurry over to The Milonga Page (#165848) to sign up to be either a Member of one of the Teams to play in this year’s 3rd Annual Birdie FootBall Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl, or to participate as a CheerLeader for this year’s Game. WELL!!! As of Mr Kiddo’s visit Wednesday evening, I was informed that there had already been 31 Birdies sign up to be Players, and 10 to be CheerLeaders! So, at this point in time, with the deadline to sign up having been midnight YESTERDAY (Thursday, November 6) what there is to do now is to BE SURE to mark the date on your calendar, November 29th, to attend this wonderful Annual Event and root for your favorite Team to win; either the Pilgrims or the Indians. As my frother, (Ö> Jake would be prone to say here, “Be there, or be SQUARE!!!” **TeeHee**

Thank you so very much, Miss BigBaby, for your visits and your votes. It is so comforting to know that I can count on seeing your lovely face on my page each day. I truly appreciate all your support.

  Now, moving on …
to today’s planned History of the National FootBall League, this may serve to give us all a clearer picture of our American FootBall Heritage.

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league that constitutes one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America. It is composed of 32 teams divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The highest professional level of the sport in the world, the NFL runs a 17-week regular season from the week after Labor Day to the week after Christmas, with each team playing sixteen games and having one bye week* each season. Out of the league's 32 teams, six (four division winners and two wild-card teams**) from each conference compete in the NFL playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, played between the champions of the NFC and AFC. The champions of the Super Bowl are awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Various other awards exist to recognize individual players and coaches. Most games are played on Sunday afternoons; some games are also played on Mondays and Thursdays during the regular season. There are games on Saturdays during the first two playoff weekends. Sometimes, there are also Saturday games during the last few weeks of the regular season.

The NFL was formed on August 20, 1920, as the American Professional Football Conference; the league changed its name to the American Professional Football Association (APFA) on September 17, 1920, and changed its name to the National Football League on June 24, 1922, after spending the 1920 and 1921 seasons as the APFA. Following the NFL's merger with the All-America Football Conference at the end of 1949, the league adopted the name National-American Football League, but reverted back to National Football League three months later. In 1966, the NFL agreed to merge with the rival American Football League (AFL), effective 1970; THE FIRST SUPER BOWL WAS HELD at the end of that same season IN JANUARY 1967. Today, the NFL has the highest average attendance (67,591) of any professional sports league in the world and is the most popular sports league in the United States. The Super Bowl is among the biggest club sporting events in the world and individual Super Bowl games account for many of the most-watched television programs in American history. At the corporate level, the NFL is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) association. The NFL's executive officer is the commissioner, who has broad authority in governing the league.

At this point, I shall conclude my History Lesson for the day. I shall pick up with the balance of the lesson with my next note.

Have a lovely day. À la prochen frois, mon amie [Until next time, My Featheriend]

*bye week – Refers to any week during the regular season in which a team does not play a game. Each NFL team has one "bye week" during a normal season; this is placed on the schedule between Week 4 and Week 12.

**wild-card team – In general, a tournament or playoff berth awarded to a team that has not qualified through normal play. The wild-card teams constitute the two teams in each conference – after the division winners – with the best overall records.
