Superbowl, Schmuperbowl

I hear the Super Bowl is coming up.

I'm not a sports lover. 

But in the same way I'm not an animal lover, just because I'm not a sports lover doesn't mean I hate sports.

Here are some things I'm looking forward to about the Super Bowl:

1.  The commercials.  Even the most devoted fan looks forward to the commercials.  Am I right?  Yes.

2.  The food.  You cannot watch sports without eating yummy snacks.  Super Bowl snacks are even better because they're usually a step up from just regular snacks.  And even if the snacks are not a step up from regular snacks, there are more of them.

3.  The half time show.  I watched an interview featuring Madonna and she said she has like 7 minutes to take down her stage.  That's incredible.  Nevermind the show, the logistics are amazing.  Plus, there's always some random back up dancer on the field who dances off beat or runs the wrong way, which is funny to watch for.

4.  The game.  I don't really like to watch football, or any sport, for that matter.  But sometimes I don't mind watching.  Emphasis on sometimes.  Sometimes meaning once a year.  Only on Super Bowl Sunday do I try to pay attention to the actual game. 

And, as a bonus this year, I watched the playoff games.  Both of them.  I feel like I should get to eat extra snacks on Super Bowl Sunday for this.  Because the snacks at the playoff games were nonexistent.  Does that make sense to anybody else, or is it just me? 


  1. Adding SCHM to most any word is cool...

    I came to your blog from Jon Acuff’s site. He has created a tremendous forum for sharing our blogs and impacting more people with them.

    I hope my blog can be an encouragement to you also.

    I write it for encouragement and motivation daily.

    Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to watching the connections grow!

  2. Oh the food, of course that's why I like to go to Superbowl parties! That and watching for the "wardrobe malfunctions" I can totally remember sitting at mom and dad's house when Janet Jackson had her malfunction. I saw it and no one else in the room did. I remember thinking am I dreaming. So I mentioned it and everyone thought I was crazy. Then the next day all the news stations were talking about it!
