A four hour pregame show,an interview with the president and two weeks worth of commercialism
Everyone watches, women who know nothing of football, many not even knowing what a first down, or safety is. This means the guys watching having to explain simple concepts to them so they don't feel left out.
I prefer a regular season game, when the woman are complaining that their men are sitting on their asses and there are 15 games on any given week.
This is the biggest game of the season and it's not the time to be explaining things to the ones who watch but once a year.
May I recommend start watching early in the season. Maybe next year we can start watching the game undisturbed and in peace. Guess I'm dreaming, but at least blogging at half time allows me to not have to explain to my guests what a touchdown is.
P.S.- Superbowl seat true story... ;D)
"A woman had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As she sat down, a man came along and asked her if anyone is sitting in the seat next to her.
"No," she said, "the seat is empty."
"This is incredible," said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?" Somberly, the woman says, "Well... the seat actually belongs to me. I was supposed to come here with my husband, but he passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we have not been to together since we got married in 1967."
"Oh I'm sorry to hear that, that's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else - a friend or relative or even a neighbor to take the seat?" The woman shakes her head, "No, they're all at the funeral."
