The Super Bowl has become a national holiday, but the best pure weekend of the NFL season is Championship Sunday. Two games, two champions, two celebrations, two tickets punched to Super Bowl 42. Yes, the Super Bowl is the ultimate game because it has the ultimate prize, but the AFC and NFC Championship Games are pure, unadulterated action.
Unlike the Super Bowl, the championship games are played in front of real fans in stadiums with real home field advantages, not in a warm retractable roof artificial playpen filled with corporate supporters. The Super Bowl has become an event, a gala, with a football game sandwiched in.
The AFC and NFC Championship Games are what a football fan lives for and truly appreciates.
