And, just as I promised, here I am again. Actually, NFL games aren't just played on Sundays. In addition the Sunday games at 12:00 and 3, there is also a Sunday evening game at 7 (I think). Near the end of the season, for some reason (I rhymed, yay), they play one game every Saturday evening. There is also one game every Monday night for every week of the season. This is called Monday Night Football, and usually shows what is considered to be the best game of the week. Only teams who have a tradition of winning tend to be scheduled for Monday Night Football. Yes, yes, it seems unfair, but it is in an attempt to avoid pathetic games between pathetic teams (though those are sometimes funny to watch). Finally, there are always two games on Thanksgiving Day. These games are always played in Dallas and Detroit. Why Dallas and Detroit always play in the Thanksgiving Day games, I don't know, but that is how it is (and who am I to question that? *grins*). I think that covers all the days games are played on. Of course, once again, the playoffs are slightly different, but that is another story.
And football is the master at messing with time, especially near the last two minutes in a close game. I've turned on a game with 2 minutes left, changed channels, come back 5 minutes later, and found there's still a 1:40 left in the game. But I guess that's how it works in any game with time-outs.
"Thankyou for that wonderful information...I feel armed and ready...when I get to America at some point I have my first Sunday planned out...two games in one time period"
Just make sure you come during football season, otherwise you might have to watch professional basketball, and god forbid that. *grins*
