i feel so dirty

Because I could not refrain from watching the game, I had to choose a team. I cannot do things without having a purpose, even if it's a contrived and silly-sounding purpose. So I chose the Giants and here is the reasoning that will help me sleep tonight:
  1. They were the underdogs.
  2. I like quarterback Eli Manning's brother, Peyton, in all of his amusing, self-deprecating commercials.
  3. Michael Strahan has a sweet smile and seems like a decent guy.

  4. Patriots coach Bill Belichick's cut-up sweatshirts are ridiculous.

I realize all of this "thinking" is coming dangerously close to my admittedly pathetic rationale for hating the Miami Dolphins for years (orange & turquoise are hideous team colors). But I had to have something; just wanting the Patriots to lose so they wouldn't be undefeated seemed terribly mean and petty.

Forgive me, Cowboys. (I was pretending it was you the whole time).

When in doubt, always root for the underdog!

I went shopping for workout gear instead.


all hail shopping during the football. Plenty of parking and the isles are clear.

AND THEN... we went to the grocery store...

same thing there.

Yes, we pretended it was the Cowboys too...and it was a sweet win. Maybe next year the boys will make it all the way - we can only hope. :)

I do like football better than your sister. It's not too bad.

I don't know who any of those people are,but the cut up sweatshirts...egad. I felt badly (not bad, right?) for them when they lost though.
