I read an interesting treatise once about American football and how it suits the uniquely American mentality. It is fast and violent with periods of crushing dullness as well, as teams plan and counterplan offense vs. defense.

The names of many clubs evoke our frontier, revolutionary, and industrial heritage; Cowboys, Redskins, Patriots, Steelers, Oilers etc. Even the structure of the game mirrors the westward expansion of society, measured off in ten-yard increments (9.14 meters) by officials carrying chains and sticks that are remarkably similar to antiquated surveying equipment. The surveyor is the unsung hero of American history!
