    If only coach would have put me in that last quarter, we would've taken state. And I'd be out there as a pro now.

    Way too many years ago to count, when I lived in the old country, Channel 4 used to show the Superbowl, and a good friend of mine who was a pro soccer player always threw a Superbowl party at his house. He was a Scotsman and invariably pulled out a good bottle of whiskey to 'sip' while we watched. I do not remember ever making it past the first quarter as it was only ever him and I who were 'sipping', and I never knew what the hell was going on anyway, so no worries... I never tried to watch it again, and almost certainly never will.

    I watch one american football game a year. This is it. Don't watch College ball, don't watch the Grey Cup, don't watch the thousands of monday night football games. Frankly don't like it that much. But the sheer insanity of the playoff games in any sport just elevate the game to its best level. There is no phoning it in in these games, Olympics, World Cup, etc. It is sometimes a tutorial on how to play the game the best (sometimes not).

    On the other hand if there is a bike ride and the weather is nice, football game'll have to wait until I am done.

    Nah, not watching it. The biggest bike swap of the year is that day (Blaine, MN). Gonna have new toys to play with instead!

    I think the superbowl kept people off the trails today. Compared to yesterday my local trails were packed. I'll probably stay off of Facebook all day because the newsfeed is full of the same commentary from different people regarding the game.

    Not possible. The Superbowl hasn't been played yet. Just the divisional championship games today.

    Big games mean better snowboarding. No one skis on Super Bowl Sunday so I get the mountain to myself. Then I go raid my nearest friends leftover feast and beer.

    I'm more of a college basketball fan, or MLB if St Louis is doing well. I hardly ever watch TV. Maybe I will watch the Superbowl if I happen to think of it when it's on and if I am doing nothing.

    I only keep up with USA pro sports when the play-offs start. I almost always watch the Stuperbowl, World Serious, and The Finulz.

    Now way in hell I'm gonna miss the Stuperbowl! That's the one day when my Mother & Father-in-law invite me (alone) to watch the game on their super high tech, gigantic LCD LED HDTV and they have a huge spread of goodies and drinks to enjoy! :thumbsup:

    I'm certainly no sports buff but I have to say that one of the funnest things there is to experience is a live sports game. The crowd's energy is amazing!

    But, I have to ask you guys here who are anti-superbowl, where's your pride for your country?

    It's not about the players, it's about the event. You wanna make it about the individuals, you'll never be at peace with yourself. Try compassion, it's the only way to see things from all points of view.

    Remember: The only thing that is perfect, is imperfection...

    We are all guilty of that.

    Not offended, but shocked that watching football = country pride. Popular American sports just weren't big in my family growing up. I don't play WoW, but this pretty much sums up my life in pop culture:

    I'll watch it. I'm doing a 63 mile ride te day before. I imagine I'll be completely ragged out and vertical on the couch on Super Bowl Sunday.

    Aha! That must be why rowdy neighbours have been shouting and yelling all day. I thought the Super Bowl was the first weekend of Feburary though, since there is a roadieboy bike ride that day to the top of Mount Hamilton and back. Am I confused?

    Anyhow, American football is a pussy sport. The Australians/Irish/Welsh/etc. have it right with proper rugby.

    I'm on the fence. Normally I have merely a passing interest in it, but I like watching Kaepernick play so I'll probably make time for it.

    Today I missed half the NFC game because I was doing trail work. I'll make that trade any day.

    I have no desire to watch the game, or any football game for that matter. I have no idea who is playing or when they are playing. But I probably will watch the semis and finals of the Australian Open.

    I won money on the Texans not making it out of the AFC so i could buy some trail tools. easy money

    the last time i really followed football was madden and the raiders, jack lambert, randy white were on the field and i was 8-9yrs old i guess.

    I've always found it hard to get all wound up and excited about something I have no control of and that has no bearing on my life. I can't even fake it very well. I also can't figure out why some people care so much. But I'm dumb. I guess it's the same as rooting for the a-hole to get snuffed in a movie. It doesn't really matter but you want it anyway.

    That said, If there is a good SB party going on somewhere and I'm not busy (washing my hair) I may use it as and excuse to hang out with friends. Not as likely now that the Pats are out of it.

    I normally don't get too into football -- usually if I'm watching, the commercials are the best part. But I start to pay more attention when my local teams make it into the post-season, and I'm at the same school that Kaepernick graduated from a few years ago (I think he graduated just the year before I started), so a bit of school pride goes into that mix. I can hear the school football games from my back porch, so I've never bothered with actually going to one. May as well get some school pride going when it's happening on the biggest game of professional football.

    Besides, the SF Giants won it all last season, so we only owe it to the 9ers to watch them playing their championship game too. I gotta say, these past few years have been pretty good for sports fans in San Francisco.

    I have to admit that although I had no intention of watching, I wound up at a Superbowl party and watched some of the game and half-time. I'm home and it's on because, apparently, something happened that makes it interesting.

    I flipped the TV just in time to see the most interesting part of the Super Bowl.
    Right when the lights went out.
    Looked like the 49ers were getting spanked and I thought to myself "wouldn't it be funny if this break gave them a chance to regroup and they turned it around and won".

    Well, I fell asleep before the game started back probably because I really didn't care and woke back up in the last few seconds to see that they almost did come back. lol

    That was all the football I watched this year.

    I didn't watch one second of the game. I still don't even know who won, and I don't really care.

    I went rock climbing instead and had a nice evening with the wife.

    I didn't watch a second of the game either, but I usually don't miss this game. It was already dark here so I couldn't do much and basketball was canceled due to the game.
