Its conference championship weekend in the NFL. The winners of the two games on Sunday will play in two weeks in the Super Bowl. The Indianapolis Colts play the New England Patriots in the late game. The first game has my beloved Green Bay Packers visiting the defending champs the Seattle Seahawks. A tough place to win so I’m hoping Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the team are up to the task.
While you are waiting for the game or if you are not into football here are a few financial articles I suggest for some good weekend financial reading:
