The one time of the year where you are encouraged to discuss another sport.

This is one of our rare, explicitly off-topic threads. Indeed, it’ll probably be the only one this year. We used to have one for the Oscars as well, but I didn’t bother last year (my interest in four hours of virtue-signaling being slim to none) and wasn’t exactly inundated with complaints about its absence. But the Super Bowl still remains an iconic event, possibly the closest thing left to genuine national television. This year, it’s the Rams against the Patriots. I want the Patriots to win. The media says this makes me a terrible person. In my defense, it’s an extremely low-key “want”. While I’ll be watching, it’ll mostly be for the commercials, though with them all pre-released, the appeal even of that is not what it used to be.

We will, however, be watching the Kitten Bowl, and trust it will be unsullied by accusations of official malfeasance, deflated balls and controversy over actions during the National Anthem. Mrs. S has a hairdresser friend coming over to do her hair, so I’ll likely be hiding out while they drink Prosecco and exchange make-up tips, or whatever it is women do when they’re together.
