Football as part of American Culture?

Hello. I’m writing an article about football for our company newsletter. The newsletter is circulated and read in Southeast Asia.

I just need a little help. I need a casual, and if possible, personal definition of what football means to Americans. I appreciate any help you can give. I already have plenty of quick facts about football, and I just need something that’s “not from the textbooks,” so to speak.

Thanks again.
