Are You Ready For Some AFL Football?

By half time of last night's Sunday Night Football game between the Bears and Packers, I had hit a football coma. Between watching another crazy weekend of NCAA on Saturday and the opening weekend of NFL, I felt like a kid in a candy store who had eaten everything he could get his hands on. Only, unlike the kid in the candy store, I felt good. A little drowsy, but good. Adrian Peterson is dropping jaws, the Dallas Cowboys are winning, Tom Brady is back and football season is back, making all good with the world.

The first Monday Night Football games of the regular season are tonight and fittingly, they pit 4 AFL teams against each other. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the AFL, which merged with the NFL in 1970. The NFL has introduced the "legacy" collection re-introducing these wonderful logos. To mark the anniversary, has throw-back cufflinks featuring old AFL mainstays like the Titans of New York, the Houston Oilers and more.

Celebrate the AFL, NFL and the return of football here -
