super bowl sunday

Yawn. Oh, I’m sorry, was there something on television today?

It’s not that I don’t appreciate the strategy involved in football or the visceral thrill of the game.

I just don’t care. Not. one. little. bit. Why not? Who knows? Family influence? My dad lettered in marksmanship in college, and football on the tv was never a part of our household. I played baseball and soccer in elementary school, and then ran cross country one season in high school. Otherwise, I was too busy doing something else. Then, as now, music, books, and computers were a much bigger part of my life than sports, professional or otherwise.

But still, I can appreciate the importance of today’s game. May the best team get the most home runs.

Kidding! I’m just kidding!
