It?s the most wonderful time of the year? Yes, I am talking about the NFL playoffs. The playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held after the end of the NFL?s Regular Season to determine the ultimate winner, or NFL Champion.
A great way to make an already fun time even more exciting is to create a pool. You can do this with friends, family or even at the office. We here at Hungry Fan are big fans of the office pool?it certainly livens up the work environment. And we like the competition?
