Anybody else out there totally stoked about the Superbowl on Sunday? I know, I know, the NFL is full of all these egos and addicts and wife beaters and murderers and fallen heros. I know. I almost gave up on football this year because of all of the controversy. It’s disheartening and upsetting. In fact, it’s enough to make most people just not tune in at all. I know. But I love the game. I can’t help it and I’m not really that proud of it. But it’s a part of me and I love it when my team wins.
For me, the Superbowl is like a holiday. I think it’s my favorite day of the year. I love the hype and the commercials, the food, the half time show and, of course, the game. I’ve been a closet Patriots fan for quite a few years now and since they’re in the game I’m super excited about it. I say I’m a “closet” Pats fan because I don’t live anywhere near Boston, but I have some weird connection to that city that I don’t really understand. I’ve even enjoyed the whole “Deflategate” drama. This must be how some people feel about the housewife shows or the Kardashians. I like the drama. No I don’t like cheating of course. That sucks. But all this talk about deflated balls has me giggling a lot lately. It must be the T making me feel like a 13 year old boy or something but I find it humorous.
Anyway….any other football freaks out there? Who are you rooting for? Predictions?
