Anyone else not give a hooey tooey about the Superbowl? - Page 3

post #41 of 61
I may be in the minority here, because although I *hate* football, I'm a huge college basketball fan. So it's not that I hate all sports, I just happen to think football is so freakin' boring.

*run run run* *catch the ball* *run run run* *slam into other players* *stand around for a few minutes doing nothing* *run run run* *stand around for a while* *something seems to have happened so now we'll run in the other direction*

Notice that I didn't mention actually scoring any points in there, because that never seems to happen.

The last few years I seem to have ended up somewhere watching the superbowl. The commercials can be pretty funny, but honestly, it's a big stretch for me to waste three hours of my life waiting for commercials. Luckily DH is snowboarding today, so I'm home alone, which means NO SUPERBOWL.

I totally would have watched the Puppy Bowl if I had cable, though.

Just finished a crochet project I'm mighty proud of. Will post pics in a sec.
But I've got to finish a sewing project next.
I really should be working. Oh well at least I'm not watching a football game right now!

Yeah not me at all, I like to pretend I don't even know when people ask to figure out the absurdity of our "national" sport in the US. I can't say I knew who the 2nd team was, and I knew that a team from New Orleans was in the game because I have a friend who's husband is cajun.

I think the ads are most often sexist and they annoy me as a feminist so yeah, no watching for ads for me.

I'm from Indiana, so I did know it was today this year. Although in my region, everybody is Bears fans, that doesn't stop the newspapers from getting all excited about it. Most years, I don't know when it is or who's playing.

I have to admit, in high school speech class, we had to give impromptu speeches on a topic drawn out of a hat. I was, I guess you would say a nerd, and the class was full of jocks. I drew "Thanksgiving" I knew there people watched football on Thanksgiving, so I assumed it was the Super Bowl, so mentioned in my speech about how People liked to watch the Super bowl on Thanksgiving. Thankfully noone said anything, but I could tell from the looks on all their faces that I'd just said a very. dumb. thing. Open mouth, insert foot. Since then, I try to avoid the topic completely!

I grew up in SEC country, Dawg country, to be specific, during the glory days of Herschell Walker. Those people just get silly.

As a result, one of the things on my wish list for a husband was that he wouldn't be obsessed with football, especially that fantasy league stuff. I married a European who is into that type of football, which is so much more tolerable.

Having said all that-we did watch-I'm good for another 3 years or so.

Neither DP nor myself cared about the Superbowl. So we watched tv for awhile and we all took a nap. I never watch football, DP will watch, if our city's team is playing but that's about it.

I could not care less about the Super Bowl. I didn't even realize that yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday until I went online and read the news this morning.

I was at a Soup in a Bowl party. We watched The Tale of Despareaux instead of the game, and had tasty soup.

Oooh I wish I had known an "un"superbowl party was going on here.

I just made DH watch PBS's masterpiece classics with me, it was the last episode of their "Emma".

And by made - I mean he willingly agreed to watch it instead of the game. , but I had to promise not to tell anyone...I think he meant in person and not here

Oh, I wish I'd seen this earlier. We don't have Superbowl here, I hardly know what it is. We don't like sports in this house. (And don't have a TV.)
