Every year, my sister Laura (aka Lor) and brother-in-law Mike (aka Coolhand) throw an epic Super Bowl party replete with multiple courses of food and booze, varied games, family, friends and… uh… oh yeah: a big football game. My priorities for attending this party pretty much fall in that order, too. It’s not that I’m against the event or hate football, it’s just that I don’t follow it and have avoided doing so since birth. Heck, I didn’t even know the Ravens made the cut this year until just before I arrived at my sister’s door. I know I’m not alone in this just as I’m sure many watch the Super Bowl solely for the halftime show and commercials, as those items (and the 34-minute blackout) seemed to generate the most links – even more so than the particulars of the football game itself – when I logged onto the Internet the following morning. I look forward to next year’s Super Bowl, but mostly because I’ll be anticipating the pizza, tempura shrimp, Nerf hoops and pie. As for the football? If I have to.
