NFL Conference Championship games
Sunday, January 22 on CBS and FOX
I’m not the biggest fan of NFL Football but even I’m going to be watching one of these conference championship games if only for the chance to see some new blood in the Super Bowl. I’ll be cheering for the Ravens (they’ve only been once before) and the 49ers (who haven’t been in since the early 1990s…plus their uniforms are horrible).

AFC: Ravens vs Patriots ‎starts at 2:00 PM on CBS.
NFC: Giants vs 49ers at 5:30 PM on FOX.
