Super Bowl Hype
I still enjoy watching the funny commercials and I love watching the highlights, but I really don't feel like I'm missing anything by just catching the highlights of the game that night and seeing the best commercials on YouTube the next day. Maybe my apathy is made worse since I don't have a professional football team in my state.
When I go to the store this time of year and see all the displays, I feel like I'm missing out on something. It's the food. There is a definitely pigfest that takes place on Super Bowl Sunday. I could totally get into the Super Bowl if I had friends who invited me over to watch it on a big screen TV and eat all kinds of good food. I'm sure it would be a great party, but they would probably catch on that I was just a poser when they realized I didn't have any NFL licensed apparel or when they noticed I didn't really care which team won.
Don't get me wrong. I love football, but I think college football is much more exciting. I just have a hard time spending so much time watching a game. My favorite team used to be the Houston Oilers back when Earl Campbell played for them. I guess it's been a while since I've really followed the NFL.
For all of you football enthusiasts, I hope you enjoy the food and the game as well as the several days of pre- and post game hype. I just found out today who is playing. I think the Packers are going to have a hard time with the Steelers. It's gonna be hard to beat Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swan!
