How to watch the Super Bowl (like a girl)

Blah, blah, blah. I hate football. There is just something very weird about 300 pound men jumping on top of each other. And for this they get paid millions of dollars a year! I just don’t get it.

Yes, the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Yes, it was a cliff hanger of a game. Yes, Boston is celebrating. Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I only watched the first half of the game. And even better, I only watched the commercials. I thought I had read that there would be a commercial about kittens playing with tiny little footballs. I will watch anything that involves cute little fuzzy animals. Is that a such a girl thing to say or what?

The Super Bowl is a cultural phenomenon. I suppose it’s worth watching just for that. I’m sure it was all folks were talking about today at work. Well, since I work from home, the only thing I would be talking to is my computer and that would be a little creepy.

This got me to thinking. I’m sure there are some people left in America who didn’t watch the game. But, no worries, here are some tips to get you through the next week. You can converse like a football pro!

1. The ads.

Google “super bowl ads” and you’ll find plenty of websites showing the ads. You can peruse these at your leisure, passing over those which don’t do anything for you. Queue in the stupid car ads and beer ads here.

2. The game.

Google “super bowl plays” and you get an earful and eyeful of the plays during the game. Can you say, “last minute interception by Patriots Malcolm Butler won the game?” See it’s not that hard.

If you’re a guy, it’s okay to admit you don’t like football.  You might even like cute kittens too!

So what about you? Did you watch “THE” game? If so, what did you think about it?

P.S. It turns out the kitten bowl is on the Hallmark Channel. In case you haven’t had your daily dose of cuteness, here is the Kitten Bowl.
