Are You Ready for Some Football!!!

September 17,

American Professional Football Association is Established!
On September 17, 1920, the AP FA was established in Canton, Oh. Two years later it would become the National Football League, or the NFL! The original teams, which came from the Ohio and New York Leagues, for the 1920 season were:
Akron Pros
Decatur Staleys
Buffalo All-Americans 
Chicago Cardinals 
Rock Island Independents
Dayton Triangles
Rochester Jeffersons
Canton Bulldogs
Detroit Heralds
Cleveland Tigers
Chicago Tigers
Hammond Pros
Columbus Panhandles
Muncie Flyers

In 1950, the NFL acquired the All-American Football Conference. The NFL now has 32 teams.
Playoffs didn't begin until the 1932 season, and the the first Super Bowl would happen on January 15, 1967. The rest is history!
Today lift your glasses for your favorite team, for your favorite player, for your fantasy football league, or perhaps quiet Sundays with a husband out of the house!
Ok, so this is not your high school football teams Gatorade! Proceed with caution, this one's tasty!


1/2 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
1/2 oz. Melon Liqueur
1/2 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Sweet and Sour
1 oz. Lemon Lime Soda

Build drink in a tall glass over ice. 
Give it a swirl
Top with soda

I always enjoy animal acts -
