Super

Super Bowl Sunday is definitely one day of the year where you can count on most people being wrapped up in pre-game, game and post-game activities. I never used to be one of those people. In the past, I've taken full advantage of that by going to amusement parks and other places that are usually overcrowded. However, since I've been dating K, I've actually been following NFL football and getting into it. (Not that this is without precedent: In high school, I was on the football stats team.)

In any event, I, along with everyone else, will be watching the game today. I'm rooting for the Giants because a) I was impressed with their previous showing against the Pats; b) I like an underdog; and c) I hate Tom Brady. (Sorry to all the Pats fans!) Unfortunately, deep down, I'm worried that Eli Manning will have a meltdown of Rex Grossman proportions. Hopefully, the Giants will be able to maintain the momentum that has gotten them this far. If not, oh well... at least, I'll have a Bay Cities sub to munch on. (Sometimes it's nice to be a relatively apathetic L.A. sports fan.)

i love an underdog too--what an exciting game (so exciting in fact, that even T seemed remotely interested)! and i also hate tom brady, and not even just because he's a cheating misogynist. but because i'm a raider fan still holding a years-old grudge against the patriots... i like to think that somehow, some way, the outcome of this game was revenge for the tuck-rule incident back in ought-two...
