Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner. Are you ready?I grew up in a household where Super Bowl Sunday passed by like any other weekend (Nascar weekends were another story). My mother went to an all-girl’s Catholic school with 12 in her graduating class so you never developed a taste for the sport. A childhood injury that left my father with severe knee problems prevented him from playing football as a child; thus, football was never a priority for him. In fact, football was a sport I never even watched until I hit high school.
Now I live with a man who plans for the Super Bowl like others plan for Christmas dinner. He’s been mulling over the menu for weeks. A menu for our family of four – we aren’t even having a party. Sometime on Sunday he’ll rearrange the furniture for optimal viewing. He might toss around the football with the kids for a little bit, but by 2 p.m. he’ll be settling in for pre-game, venturing from the TV only for the preparation of game snacks.
Me personally, I’m somewhere in between the two. I enjoy a good game, can’t wait for the parade of Super Bowl commercials, loved the camaraderie of a party and will sit and watch the half time show.
What about you? What are your Super Bowl plans?
