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?
