What is all this hoopla about a dumb game? I may get run out of Michigan by a bunch of guys in hunting jackets, but I officially am outing myself as someone who could care less about football.
Where in New York, it is perfectly OK to get your nails done, go to a movie and just ignore the fact that the nation is glued to the television set while eating chips and digging into hogies or "Coneys" or whatever the junk food of the region is called, in Michigan, ignoring football - even high school football - is a sacrilege. I just don't get it.
Although I admit, I've watched the Superbowl in the past for the cool commercials, there is too much time in between the commercials - time I have to spend tolerating the view of a bunch of big, padded guys running into each other while circles and other scribbles appear on the screen and a clock counts down. Men have tried to explain this game to me. But it makes no sense. There are no innings like baseball. It's called "football" but the ball seems to be the least important part of the game. It's the scrambling and the scrimmaging (did I get that one right?) that seems to take center stage. And the half-time entertainment.
If the game was an interesting one to begin with, like baseball - you wouldn't NEED cool commercials and half-time entertainment to keep your audience tuned in - now WOULD you?
But the good news is this - after I tolerate the Superbowl - there will be a special episode of Glee! Now, if I don't get my Michigan license revoked by the angry beer guzzling, deer hunting, cheerleading mob, it may be worth it to endure the stupid game!
