The Who?

No, no, it's not a question. Actually The Who is the name of the group who will be performing at Super Bowl XLIV halftime. Yes as in The Who who debuted in 1964. Umm ... anyone ready to play a game? If your hand shot up into the air for the "yes" votes, then get out your pen and paper for a game of pictionary.

But maybe it's just to play the good old fashioned game of paper football.

How to Play

Basically, the object of the game is to score touchdowns. To get a touchdown, you must flick the ball with you finger (you play on a straight edged table) and have the ball stop, with part of it sticking over the table. That is 6 points. Players take turns, one flick each back and forth untill someone scores. If the ball goes off the table, you kick off. Hold the ball in your hand, resting on the plam, and toss it on the table by hitting your fingers on the underside of the table.

After a touchdown you can kick a feild goal. Whoever is kicking hold the ball vertical between his finger and the table, and with his kicking hand, he flicks the ball with his finger. The other person is holding a field goal with his finger aranged in a position, its good for 1 point.

How to make the football

1) Get a piece of paper, fold in in half longways (so you should have one long skinny half).
2) Cut or tear along the seam.
3) Holding the paper vertical (tallways) fold the corner down into a triangle. That should form a triangle.
4) Continue to fold down makeing the trianges until you run out of paper to fold.
5) Tuck what ever excess paper into the "pocket" on the top of the ball.
