Yawn

passport
Yes, of course I watched the Superbowl. I'm a football fan. Pro football, anyway. I always watch the Superbowl.

It wasn't a blowout, as so many Superbowls have been in the past. Looked like it might turn into that early on, when the Packers opened up a big early lead, but the Steelers came back in the second half and for a while it looked as though they might snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

It wasn't a thriller either. Not one of the great contests. Mediocre play, for the most part. The last few SBs have spoiled us. Kind of a yawner.

But maybe that's because I had no strong rooting interest. It's amazing how big a difference that can make. The games that involve me most are those featuring one of my teams, of course... but I can also get pretty worked up by a contest featuring one of the "bad guy" teams I love to hate, like the Cowboys or the Pats. In those, at least, I have someone to root against. The Steelers and the Pack, though... don't love 'em, don't hate 'em, so it's hard to stay emotionally involved.

I do like good play, no matter who's involved, but there weren't many spectacular plays in this SB either. Nothing to compare to the Tyree catch or the Santonio Holmes reception.

Even the commercials seemed kind of boring this year. I've already forgotten most of 'em.

That being said, I'm sure you Terrible Towel Wavers out there are crushed right now, and all you Cheeseheads are telling each other this was the best SB even. So condolences to the former, and congrats to the latter.

Next year I want Jets v, Giants. Sobway Superbowl!!!

As a committed Ravens fan, I had a lot to root against in the Steelers. I'm no big Pack fan, but I was rooting for them if only for that. (That being said, I do like it that a city of only 100,000 still manages to have a hugely successful and profitable NFL team.)

I always had a thing against Pittsburgh after the 1979 World Series (the 1971 Series too, though that happened a year before I was born). Also, the girl who broke my heard 15 years ago lived there and I last saw her when I visited her there, so my memories of the place are further tainted by that.

I really wouldn't mind it so much of the Allegheny and Monongahela over-swelled their banks one wet spring and washed the whole place away.
