How Much Time You Got?

Football is played in four quarters with a break (halftime) between the 2nd and 3rd quarters. In the NFL, each quarter is 15 minutes, halftime is 12 minutes and there is a 2 minute break after the first and third quarter, so the teams can switch end zones. At the end of the 1st and 3rd quarters, the team that has possession keeps the ball and the same position on the field to start the next quarter. However, at the beginning of the third quarter there is another kickoff just like the start of the game.

During the game, the offense has 40 seconds from the end of a play to snap the ball, beginning the next play. The clock only stops when a team calls a timeout, a pass is incomplete, a player goes out of bounds or the officials call a penalty. Also, after kicking situations, the clock will stop to allow the offense and defense to come out on the field.

If the game is tied at the end of the 4th quarter, an overtime quarter is played. This quarter is "sudden death," which means that the first team to score during overtime wins the game.

Speaking of overtime, I know that we can all spare a little more time to hear about a great shopping experience! So let me tell you about a fun way to spend Super Saturday. Join the Right LANEs for the Super Bowl of Shopping! Now these ladies are fashionistas, but this isn't just about another pair of heels for them. They have been on a mission since last year to bring women together for events to stimulate local economies and support charities while fostering professional and personal empowerment through networking, bonding and friendship. Check out part of the game plan for next Saturday's event.
