Anyhow, it was a good game, if not the best Super Bowl I've seen in years. But what it really got me thinking of was Warcraft football. Believe it or not, football in Warcraft is totally canon. If you don't believe me, you should watch the end credits for Warcraft III. With that in mind, I got to thinking about what an Azerothian football league might look like, what cities and villages would field teams, and who'd win the superbowl.
I'm sure a lot of people's first instinct would be to say that a Horde team full of tauren and orcs, perhaps from the Warsong Clan, would be the clear favorite, but you need a bit of speed and agility too. Besides, an orc probably couldn't tackle a good gnome running back. A small moving target like that would be tough to hit. I'd also bet elves would be pretty good quarterbacks.
So in honor of the real world Super Bowl, I'll ask: What would the AFL (Azerothian Football League) look like? What mascots would we see? What cities and villages would the teams hail from? Would we see solely Horde and Alliance teams, or would some of the neutral factions get in on the action? And of course, who'd take home the final trophy at the end of the year?
