I'm not much of a football fan as you can tell. I've approached Super Bowl Sunday different ways in the past. One year I opted out completely by watching chick flicks in the basement while my husband and son watched upstairs. Once I attended a Super Bowl party but was bored out of my mind. Other years I've tried following the action alongside my family in the living room but I've never yet managed to endure, I mean watch of course, cough cough the whole game.
My best Super Bowl TV viewing experience ever was when the Chicago Bears faced the New England Patriots in 1986. I happened to be in London on a school trip and watched the game in the TV lounge of my hotel. It was really amusing to hear the British commentator explain the football action. He seemed to understand the game about as well as I do. There also seemed to be an underlying bias against the New England Patriots. Hmmm, couldn't have anything to do with their team's name or that little war a couple hundred years ago...Surely not. But best of all the Bears won.
This year I will once again try to be in the same room with my son and husband as they watch. I'm arming myself with a cross-stitch project and will probably venture online if I get too restless. What will you be doing for the Big Game?
