When it comes to the NFL, everyone has their favorite weekends, and Conference Championship weekend makes my top-4, and if they would ever decide to move it to Saturday, it would probably become my favorite:
1. Opening Weekend
The moment the final whistle blows on Super Bowl Sunday, I already miss football. So needless to say, nothing can trump opening weekend, filling a 7 month void in my life and bringing with it Super dreams!
2. Divisional Weekend
I love the 2 games on Saturday, 2 games on Sunday format. While the Wild Card weekend gives us the same format, it doesn’t have the same meaning. Win on this weekend and you are one step away from the Big Game.
3. Thanksgiving Day
Dear lord what is there not to like about this day! Off work? Check. Off the next day? Check. Fill oneself with copious amounts of beer and food? Check. 3 nationally televised NFL games starting at 12 and going until midnightish? Check, check check! That, my friends, is a day in Man Heaven.
4. Conference Championship Weekend
7-8 straight hours of football, at the end of which, the Super Bowl contenders will be known. The only thing that could make this day better would be moving it to Saturday. If I ever change my name to Roger Goodell (or get named the NFL Commissioner), this is my first change.
With that being said, you didn’t stop here for my NFL weekend rankings, you stopped to find out who will win and why. Lucky for you, I will tell you yet again…with roughly 50% certainty!
