Super Bowl

Hey, how many of you folks are gonna watch the Super Bowl on your boats?
I'm stuck in work, so I'd like to know how envious*I should be.

Super Bowl

My son is 8 and a football maniac (actually a sports maniac in general). We definitely watched the super bowl. We had fun and he loves it. Great game!! *We didn't watch it on the boat though.

RE: Super Bowl

I tried to watch it. Yeah, we get it on Fox. Often do - sort of out of fascinated horror, wondering when the action will start, rather than stopping and talking about it all the time. I keep hoping I'll see what all those Americans like about it, but I still don't understand it. However, it's traditional the we over here understand Gridiron about as well as you guys understand cricket, so I guess that makes us even. For me, I'll stick to Soccer, Rugby, (both codes), and since I moved to Australia, I've even begun to understand the enthusiasm for what is called Aussie Rules Football. However, Gridiron - seems like football chess, really, still don't get it. All that delayed gratification seems so un-American, but the ads and the opening singer stuffing up her lines were fun.
I'd really love someone of you to explain that which I am clearly missing....?
Not all at once of course, and maybe it should go on the OTDE board?

RE: Super Bowl

Hey!* I was too busy having fun on my boat this weekend to look at the Forum!*

We had eight boats cruise over from their slips in the marina to the guest dock in front of the yacht club.* We all sterned in and we had two TVs on the back of boats (ours and the guy next to us) and two sailboats had their TVs going below.* The way the sun was we were able to see the outside*screens pretty well during the day and great (of course) as the sun went down.* We had a keg of bud and so many snacks most of us did not have a "real" lunch or dinner.* Our friend Lisa made her famous seven layer dip, which is about a foot high!* She was rewarded with a win on the* squares for the half time score.* Nobody REALLY cared who won but we had a good time.* It was just a gorgeous day and we all felt incredibly lucky to be watching the super bowl outside and enjoying our boats!* Two folks brought their dinghys over and let ppl borrow them for trips around the marina and someone else brought their kayaks and those got a bit of use as well.*

*Gotta love this yachting stuff!

Not to mention it was quite a warm day for the middle of winter.* Was seventy-nine degrees Fahrenheit here in Martinez, just a few miles northeast of you, Jennifer.

X2, even though we tuned out after the first quarter.* No interest since we had no horse in the race and we go to bed early in these parts. However, if we had her venue, weather and* ambience we would have somehow been able to keep our eyelids open.

Party of two in the dirt-house in front of the flatscreen and the fireplace!

Good game - good company.* Even agreed to watch Glee after- whatever it takes sometimes.

RE: Super Bowl

Aha, y'all gave yourselves away there. It is as I suspected. The game is not what fires you up really, it is just too stop start, no-one can remember where it is up to, and the score only matters to the local supporters. Its the atmosphere and the venue that's the pull. The get-together using the game as the excuse. Hey, I can relate to that. The Melbourne Cup horse race over here in Melbourne is sort of like that. Most people that make a fuss over it no diddly-squat re horse racing, and never watch another race all year, but that one is special - the nation stops for it, everyone has parties for it. Super Bowl - Melbourne Cup....definitely a similarity there.
