Superbowl Sunday & I Don't Care [JESSE 2.0]

So the "bowl which is super" is currently underway in Dallas, Texas. The only reason that I know it's there is because of the coverage we did as news reporters for my real job last week. I went to Wal-Mart today for groceries and was lost in a sea of team-logo-adorned jocks and former jocks. Queue my neighbor's unveiling of his purportedly "terrible towel" this morning on his garage door, captured via my webcam:

I don't watch or play sports, and I never have. That makes me a bit of an outcast from my fellow males. But my family never followed sports, and (by the grace of God) neither did my ex-wife or stepdaughter.

So this year is no different -- but I will certainly partake in a pizza, some potato chips, and some relaxation in front of the TV. My family and I used to watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, but because of those memories I don't think I can bring myself to do that this year. Today it's Superbowl Sunday -- my way.
