    Things I'd rather do than watch the Super Bowl...

    Most anything beyond watching paint dry, although I'd bet wet paint would be more exciting to watch.

    Doubtless wet paint would have less lowbrow spectacle and fewer flashy things designed specifically to appeal to the lizard portion of the intoxicated human brain, but it would certainly be more original and interesting.

    Sit in a bath of acid and drive nails into my skull.

    Nah, not really, but I don't like sports.

    Hardly, but you have to admit when the most memorable super bowl moment in the last 20 years was Janet Jackson's boob popping out during the halftime show makes it extremely difficult to argue it's an opportunity to see a corker of a ball game or get very excited about watching a sporting event with such a long history of being one of, if not the most, boring game of the entire season. Your average curling match is more exciting than your average super bowl.

    Were it not for this near perfect record of mediocrity as a sporting event, there would be no need for all the low brow spectacle and flashy things specifically designed to appeal to the lizard portion of an intoxicated human brain.

    Sadly, without all the non sporting extras and pre game hype, I doubt there would be enough interest to justify putting it on national TV.

    Either way, have fun today and I hope you enjoy the game. Hopefully it will be more than a snore-fest. If the game does live down to it's historical super bowl rep, you can always have fun getting caught up in all the extraneous hoopla.

    Would love to talk more, but I've got some paint drying and I don't want to miss a single exciting moment.

    Working in sales/marketing, I'd be remiss if I didn't watch the game purely for the commercials.

    Yep, tomorrow's going to be a waste... all the sales/marketing guys talking about the commercials; everyone else will be talking about the game.

  16. HAHAHA, now that's old school

    I'd rather do chores. Hell, I'd rather practice guitar than watch the Super Bowl. I gave up deliberately watching football in the mid-'70s, and the Super Bowl shortly thereafter. They're almost always cautiously boring games, which is why, like someone's already mentioned, there are so many outrageous commercials and Vegas-spectacle half times. Gotta go now; the vacuum cleaner's calling me.:)

    Nothing...looking forward to it and rooting for peyton. Being from indy,,im glad to see him with another shot at it. He gets alot of flak for those one and done playoffs but indy had some pretty sorry defenses and special teams in those years.
