Stupor Bowl

I guess that today is the Super Bowl, even though it feels like that should have happened some day back in January. I'm hoping that the fact that the Super Bowl keeps creeping later and later into the year doesn't mean that the football season will soon be year-round, like baseball and basketball (note: those sports may not be year-round, but it sure as hell feels like it).

In any case, as I mentioned recently on my other blog, I've started listening to the funny and entertaining podcast called "The Complete Guide to Everything." This last week they had a podcast about the Super Bowl, and one of the hosts (Tim) made a comment that I liked:

"I watch a football game like I'll stop if I'm walking by a dog park: just to watch some dogs run around... It's like, "Oh, this is cool! Whoa, hey! Alright. Alright. Well, I have an appointment to get to now. I can't spend all day at the dog park. I'm not gonna learn all these dogs' names and what their strengths and weaknesses are."

That cracked me up. In any case, to everyone in the U.S., enjoy the good food and company that come with the day!

That's a pretty great podcast, and a good statement. Especially this year, I didn't really get to watch much of the regular season, so the super bowl was a bit of a waste of time for me. I was just cheering for the Packers since some of my friends like them. Mostly, it's a good reason to relax for a day and eat lots of chili and meatball subs.

Relaxing while eating chili and meatball subs sounds so, so, SO good.
