Well, not watching Super Bowl 49 will be easy!
Last year I wrote a post saying I was through with the NFL. I even gave 10 reasons. (And yes, Daniel Snyder topped the list and he still holds the top spot after this year’s debacle.) I’ve pretty much kept to my promise.
But to find out today that my least-favorite teams – the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots – will be in the Super Bowl is just perfect. We have the battle of the super-egos (and with these two teams, you can pick multiple candidates). After Seattle won today, I heard Russell Wilson gushing about how God had prepared him for a game like today. I’ve got news for Russell Wilson: God doesn’t give a damn about whether the Seahawks win or lose. Or the Patriots. Or the Nationals, for that matter. (Just to prove that I’m an equal opportunity atheist when it comes to God and sports.) She has much more important things to do.
I think I’ll be watching paint dry or something else more productive come Super Bowl Sunday.
Brady, Belichick, Sherman, Lynch, Carroll. Oh please…
How many days until pitchers and catchers report? (30 days, to be exact.)
The great Rogers Hornsby said it best:
People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do.
I stare out the window and wait for spring.
