Super Bowl Sunday is days away and the New England Patriots will be taking on the Seattle Seahawks for the championship. When it comes to football this is what I know. All that I know.
When I started high school, it was brought to my attention that game days meant an afternoon off school. The sport befuddled me, but who could resist such inducement? I attended but never came to feel the love.
Recently hearing this, a colleague did her best to instruct me in the finer points of the game. And she actually succeeded in getting me to see what the attraction might be. I came to appreciate that this is a sport not just about athleticism, but one involves tactical strategies as well. There are those I've heard say that the Patriots will be the ones to beat in this game because they have implemented strategies in such a way as to take play to a whole new level. The real trick has been knowing the rules and how to exploit them, my experts have told me.
Well, what I know about the rules of football could be printed on a single cleat, but it does seem me that it's strategy that makes the game so exciting for so many. Well, that and the tight pants.
So, in recognition of the Super Bowl, the players and all of the people who will spend hours in front of the television on Sunday here are some terrific football illustrations from iCLIPART.com, and Clipart.com.
