I love the Superbowl. It's my second favorite sports event of the year (March Madness is a the all time favorite!). Even when my team isn't playing...which they usually aren't...I still get excited.
We have a tradition where my mom, who really knows nothing about the game or the teams, chooses the winner based on the colors of each team's uniform. She's called the winning team about 90% of the time.
Then there are the pools. Everyone in my family is usually in some pool or another and we all sit and watch the game while holding sheets of paper with our pool numbers. After every single play we dream up possible scenarios that will get us the scores we need to win our respective pools.
Of course, there are also the commercials. I mean, who doesn't love the Superbowl commercials. Sometimes, they are better than the actual game. I'm really looking forward to them this year. I'm hoping for some good ones.
Lastly, there is the halftime show. It's never good and last year it was spectacularly bad...but I love it. I love everything about it and the worse it is, the better I like it. This year's headliner for the show is Madonna. I can't wait.
I have my menu planned, the fridge stocked with beer and wine and our Giants gear ready. I'm hoping for a great game and a NY victory...but even if they lose, at least I know I'll have a good time.
