Superbowl. Woo?

As mostly everyone should know, the Superbowl is this weekend. Classmates have been strongly voicing opinions on who they think should win. Even the teachers have been encouraging students to root for a certain team. (In my neck of the woods, people mostly support the Steelers.) In these instances, I don't have too much to say.

I do not watch sports.

I do not participate in sports. Or at least not willingly.

I will not be watching the Superbowl, unless we're talking commercials, half-time show, and possibly Jennifer Hudson singing The Star Spangled Banner. The same is true for most of my family members. To the surprise of some, even my dad and brother don't show that much interest in football.

I can kind of see why people watch sports--kind of....okay, maybe I just don't get it all.

During the Superbowl, I'll have to find something else to entertain myself. Perhaps I can even get some writing done? I'd like to say I will get some writing done, but I will probably end up surfing blogs, forums, and YouTube.

What are you all doing for the Superbowl?

And is anyone excited for the post-Superbowl one hour special episode of The Office?

Thanks to HH Studio for a picture of a place I will probably never go....he he.

ETA: I just noticed how much of a stereotypical writer I am!


  1. Superbowl? Haha, I've heard of that on the Simpsons, but being Australian don't really know too much about it. I'm not big on watching sports myself (even though I watch a LOT of sport, soccer, cricket, rugby, tennis -- it's because of my dad and brother, there's never anything else on our TV).

    American sport I don't understand, though. You guys tend to do a lot of your own stuff (baseball, don't participate in cricket etc). I'm pretty sure your version of football is different to ours too. Care to explain it? :)

  2. That sounds exactly the same as our football! But everyone tells me the two are different. Lol, I'm not great at explaining football either. Actually, I'm not good at explaining any sport to tell the truth.

    Yeah, I was kinda surprised they actually let me do proofs too, but they were like 'We trust you...' I'm not sure if that was the best idea on their part, but it was good for me :)
