The Big Game

Am I the only one who doesn’t care about the Superbowl?

I understand pro sports from a commercial point of view. There’s money to be made across the board for players, owners, entertainers and advertisers. And when it comes to the big game, the host city, the airlines, and every company in any way associated with this production will benefit. I’m okay with that, but I can’t work up any enthusiasm for it.

When I was trying to come up with a blog today, I considered giving you some Big Game Recipes. A blogger friend of mine at GRACEANDGRAVY, offered 12 Top Superbowl Recipes that included: Oreo Cookie Ball Gameday CupcakesFried Macaroni and Cheese BitesLoaded Sweet Potato Fries, to name a few.  Oh, my gosh, no. I don’t eat those kinds of things on non-game days, so why would I go to all that work when two teams I have no vested in get together to play a game?

Normally, I’d be curled up with a book on Sunday afternoon, but because my brother-in-law is visiting from South Dakota, I will be attending a Superbowl Party this Sunday. I’m taking kale salad and slow-cooked ribs with Kinder’s Organic Barbecue Sauce. Very little prep work. I may still have time to read. ;-)

And while others are glued to the passing game or debating whether or not one team has under-inflated balls (how emasculating is that?), I will check out a few of the overpriced and sometimes very entertaining commercials. In years past, I’ve applauded Budweiser’s creative team for tugging on my heartstrings, but, I’m sorry to say, this year’s dog and pony show left me underwhelmed.

A wolf? Really?

Yep. I think I’m going to have to stick to reading. But, hey, to all of you who are big fans of New England or Seattle, good luck and game on!

  1. That sounds like a plan, but trying to find a movie that pleases three adults of very different tastes is a study in frustration. So, I’ve completely blown it as a hostess for my brother-in-law. I tried a suspense pick the first night. Turned out to be Australian. Most violent thing I’ve ever watched. I couldn’t quit watching it, though, because you were kind of rooting for the hero even though we lost count of the number of bodies.
    The next night we tried Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Don’t ask why. Last night, we went for a documentary called Hiroshima. I’m SOOO not picking any more movies.

  2. Deb- I don’t care, either. That said, I do live in the greater Seattle area and it’s kinda difficult to not get excited about the Seahawks. (Go, hawks!) We are going to a Superbowl party and I expect I’ll watch some of the game. The ads are always entertaining, too.
