Description

It’s easy to be a Monday-morning quarterback, but the true football fan has the answers all week long. Doug Lennox, the all-pro of Q&A, leads the drive as he tells us why a touchdown is worth six points, who first decided to pick up the ball and throw it, and how a children’s toy changed the sport’s biggest championship. Along the way we’ll meet players great and not-so-great and encounter the various leagues that have come and gone throughout the world.

  • Why is the sport called "football"?
  • Who first used the term sack?
  • Why did one American president consider banning football?
  • What football team was named after a Burt Reynolds character?
  • Why are footballs shaped the way they are?
  • How many times have NFL and CFL teams squared off?
  • Which came first - the Ottawa Rough Riders or the Saskatchewan Roughriders?
  • Whose Super Bowl ring is a size 25?
