Ah yes, the superbowl:
I may turn on the game and watch while I read. I really should. It's a once a year thing (and for me, so far, would be a once in a lifetime thing !!)
And it's really such an integral part of America -- watching wife-battering, ball-deflating, steroid-overinflated, overpaid men destroying each
other's brains ever more while attempting to conquer a few yards at a time -- and resulting in the winner not even able to take hostage one of the cheer leaders
and the whole bunch have to get the hell out of the arena without even a ripped out seat or ripped off $10 hotdog concession for "spoils".
What a waste of archetypal/territorial primate-proliferation prancing around.
But more people watch the Superbowl than all the other sports' culminations put together -- I think I've read.
And of that mass of the populace, almost everyone I know is, including at least three of my kids who are almost sports fanatics (beyond fans).
So they compensate for my essential disinterest in symbolic (and confoundingly complex statistical) victories of sports, including football (softball??).
Go PATS. (hey, I'm from Mass. I'm root for all the local teams -- whatever they are . . . . . . )
