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.
