I’ll be watching the Superbowl Sunday night, and as a former resident of the Hoosier State, cheering on the Colts.
Also because Payton Manning is their Quarterback, and he likes Oreos. I like Oreos too. So Payton and I have A LOT in common.
I really do enjoy a good football game now and then.
Especially if the Bears are winning. Or if Notre Dame is winning. Or if USC is losing.
I don’t really understand all the rules. I get the basic premise. Move the ball down the field, try not to get knocked down by some big, scary dude. Run across the goal line. NEVER let go of the ball. NO MATTER WHAT! (I heard that in a movie.)
I’ve even mastered how the whole Down thing works. I’m kinda proud of that.
But that’s about where my knowledge stops.
Oh, and I know the team dumps Gatorade on their coach at the end of the game when they win.
That’s your reward for success?
Men are so strange.
But I also know that a lot of you ladies could care less about the Superbowl. And some of you are excited about Sunday night only because it means an end to a very long season. No longer will you be a football widow on Monday, Thursday and Sunday. At least until next year.
So for those of you who just aren’t into throwing around the Ol’ Pig Skin, here’s some suggestions for ways you can enjoy the biggest football night of the year too.
1. Everybody knows the commercials and the half time show are really the best part. Just watch those and bring along a good book or your laptop for entertainment while the ball is in play.
2. Occupy yourself by redesigning both teams uniforms in your mind to make them more fashionable.
3. EAT! Good food goes hand in hand with the Superbowl. Dump the diet for one day, and eat junk food to your heart’s content.
4. Invite your girlfriends and their hubbies over to watch the game. The girls can dish in the kitchen while the guys high five in front of the TV.
5. Make a fair trade with your hubby. You watch the Superbowl with him, he takes you to the newest Nicholas Sparks movie.
6. Console yourself with this thought- There are approximately 174 days, give or take a few, until the 2010-11 football season kicks off.
Have a great Superbowl Sunday!
