stupid bowl

I cannot remember ever not wanting to watch the Super Bowl, until now. I abhor the New England Patriots for numerous reasons - paranoid coach who spies (truly spies, with secret cameras and everything), elitist attitude about their 18-0 record (whatever), and a pretty boy quarterback who left his pregnant girlfriend for a supermodel. AND they're an AFC team. Blech.

But the New York Giants? Double blech. Of course I'm having sour grapes because they beat my 'boys out of the playoffs (*sob*), but beyond that? Their little pretty boy quarterback is the one who whined and cried and called his daddy when the San Diego Chargers wanted to (and did) draft him, and he behaves like a frightened rabbit on the field, it's embarrassing to any football fan. They barely, bumblingly beat Green Bay and denied Brett Favre one last Super Bowl; I would gladly have cheered for the Pack, especially against the Patriots. But the Giants are in the Cowboys' division - I WILL NOT root for them. I think the Dallas police would revoke my team shirts (and underwear) if I did so.

Plus, these teams have the same colors! Is that even allowed? This will be the stupidest game ever. I'll be in my room.

Yeah! To add to the stupidness let's name the spying New England coach "Coach of the Year". That is golden. WTH? Hmmm, Superbowl? I think I'll opt to get a tooth pulled instead.

Are there non-Stupid bowl years? ;)

It all blends together into too much football for me, any year. And. AND. My kids are ganging up against me, wanting to hear games on the radio.

I might die in my room.

Um, Lisa & Mrs. G? You are BLASPHEMERS. Not to put too fine a point on it. You mock my pain.

Thanks for having my back, Anonymous & Anastasia.

Lucky for all of you, Stephanie is not one to pout.... I think I can hear her stomping to the room now. ;)

I think every super bowl is Stupid Bowl, except for the commercials. And, if the teams outfits... or costumes, or whatever they call them are the same color - that would automatically cancel each other out - you win, NO Game! Yay.

I am already "shopping" at the library for dvd's to watch that weekend...

What a snooze-fest of a game...

I can't really talk about this now. It was my San Diego Chargers that the Patriots beat.

Lisa's comment cracked me right up.

I did understand the part about Gisele and the QB and Bridget Moynahan though. See? I can hang.

Also, I like colors, too.
