tennis, anyone?

So I've spent the entire week thinking that tomorrow was Super Bowl Sunday, and then I went online first thing this morning to find out what time the game starts, since I'm working and wanted to psych myself up. Oops. Unless we've fast-forwarded to February 3rd, I think I'm a little off base.


Can you tell I'm not a football fan?

Hey RC! What's the Superbowl, anyway? A ceramics convention? A soup making class? It doesn't feature on my radar either - I don't think we're missing much. You have a lot going on - you're excused.

Take care.

silly RC. tomorrow is the Packers game. you might want to watch it. they're playing outside in what is supposed to be 0 degrees and possibly heavy snow.

it could be fun.

as long as you don't go in person.

I finally got into football, after over 40 years of resistance, when I read Hurricane Season by Neal Thompson. And watch the Packers, tomorrow. Our Aunt Sis is going to the Game. Brave Woman.

I'm assuming that you have to psyche yourself up over it because of all the idiots who end up in your care?

RC, I only watch for the commercials. And I had no idea when it was. I would have guessed next weekend.

I actually like to watch football. I like the Packers and the Cowboys, so I'll definitely be watching this weekend.

Of course, I grew up cheerleading and directing the band at football games, so I actually had to learn the rules.

One of the standing jokes in our family is that every single year, I start out Superbowl Sunday with my favorite question: "What's a first down?" Poor family. They all go into fits of laughter and then 10 people try to explain it at once. Which is probably why I have to keep asking.

Please -- don't feel compelled to explain it to me now. It will leave my brain by the game if you do.

Kimberly said...

Heh, I didn't even know it was coming up...didn't even know what time of -year- never mind which weekend. You're a step ahead of me!

In the Netherlands we certainly don't worry about the Superbowl, although American football is becoming more popular. I never did get into it when I lived in the States and was pretty much oblivious of it, although I do know what a first down is.

Here it is, what you Americans call, soccer. I have been known to get excited about that. Especially for the World Cup and if the Netherlands plays.

My hobby is watching skating. I find it mesmerizing and relaxing to watch. There are no scrimmages and no foul plays. Just people rhythmically moving over the ice. The Dutch do well too.

I hope you are having a good day, RC. Take care.

Hugs

Here in the frozen tundra, the state is officially closed as of kickoff on Sunday. Bolt the doors, don't take any calls, and keep the snacks coming.

I never knew it was even coming up. I only know when our custodian at school starts coming around with a board, you pay money, put your name on a square and they pull numbers. It has something to do with the score. I never know if my numbers are good or not. I just hand them over to David.
Don't feel bad. If we lived closer, maybe we could pay tennis or better yet, go out for a long lunch on super bowl day. XOXO

my two cents said...

Well, here the Rose Bowl pretty much drives life for a week or so. The Super Bowl, not so much, unless it is being played in our city. I sometimes watch, if there is nothing else going on. This year we will be celebrating a nephew's birthday two hours away, so probably no football game, but plenty of pirate games!

Well at least you haven't missed it! :)

Amy: What state is that? Because here in Michigan, the entire state closes down and liquor sales rise at the opening of deer hunting season in November.

At least football doesn't doesn't require lethal firearms, hard liquor, and dead animals. Well, maybe the Superbowl does.

Hm. Unless I'm much mistaken, there was a post here, which has disappeared. I saw it, skimmed it, thought "I'll read that properly later", and now can't.

Just to say, hugs.
