Last night, millions of people tuned in to the Super Bowl to watch the Green Bay Packers play the Pittsburgh Steelers for the NFL Championship.
Millions more tuned in just to watch the commercials.
I will admit to being just a teeny bit of a football fan, at least as long as the Cowboys are competing, and I’ve learned enough about the game in the last 27 years of marriage to carry on a decent conversation about things like penalties and two-point conversions. Well, maybe not a decent conversation, but enough to not completely embarrass myself in a room full of men who know the game. Hint: don’t talk much.
But I do love the commercials….is that shallow? Naaaah. I just like the creativity and humor that goes into making the Best of the Best ads that cost a fortune. And there were some excellent ones last night.
How about you? Do you watch the game for the commercials, or vice versa? Or are you the chili and chips lady who keeps the party going for the fans in the room? Maybe you’re like Priscilla, godly woman that she is, who keeps the kids occupied so her man can enjoy the game? I’ve done all those things through the years, and I guess the bottom line is I enjoy having a tradition that is simply fun, doesn’t require much planning, and….involves paper plates.
So how about you? What do you like/not like about the Super Bowl?
PS Priscilla, pretty soon the Super Bowl will mean that your 4 boys can be left alone with chips, sodas and a pot of chili – while you can have an afternoon to yourself! You will have earned it!
