SuperBowl Sunday

It's that time again. One of the biggest sports holidays of the year. People gather in bars and living rooms with beer and pizza and scream at the athletes on television to do better than they are currently doing. Men get aggravated at the women in the room because they tend to talk and ask questions during crucial parts of the game. Women get aggravated at men because they tend to splash beer all over the place in their excitement.

This year the Green Bay Packers face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Songs have been created on the subject, and many a newspaper article has been written. Apparently neither team has cheerleaders, to the dismay of horny men all over the country. I have no stake in either team really, GB knocked the NY Giants out of the running and the Steelers knocked the Jets out. My team choice has nothing to do with team loyalty this year.

Ben Roethlisberger is leading the Steelers into the Superbowl in hopes of adding a seventh victory to their record. Aaron Rodgers will be leading the Packers to a hopeful fourth SuperBowl Victory.

I will be rooting for the Packers today. They are the underdogs and my roommate is a Steelers fan so I feel the need to go against him. In reality, though, I'm just going to enjoy having friends over. That's what football, and all sports, really are to me. An excuse to get everyone in the same room for a couple hours.

Go Packers!
