Did anyone ever stop to think how ridiculous "I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials" sounds? Personally, I'd be more engaged if they showed the cheerleaders more often.
Gotta admit, though, even with the lack of cheerleader coverage, I'm enjoying watching the game. First half has been pretty exciting. Not gonna lie, I do get kinda caught up in the whole "Super Bowl" thing (it's a unique piece of Americana and my family likes doing stuff uniquely American like Super Bowl and Thanksgiving). They grew up with cricket and soccer frenzies, and those frenzies don't exist in the US. And, hey, "helmet" football is a uniquely American sport.
And I'm rooting for the Ravens. Not only for the silly reason in my prior post, but because Joe Flacco is a hometown hero (his family lives in and around my neck of the woods) and one of his younger brothers attends the high school I work at, so it's Flacco fever around me.
Because of the circles I normally run in, I am a bit of a closet sports fan. Granted, I generally tune out during the regular season, but playoff time is when I'm really engaged, especially with ice hockey. Even if the teams I normally support don't make it, playoff games are fun to watch once in a while.
