Super Bowl Sunday: Colts vs. Saints


I loathe football. I would rather spend the few leisure hours I have off of work doing anything I wanted rather than spending 4+ hours on a Saturday watching football. I've tried to enjoy it, but I don't have it in me--even if I am surrounded by people that I love. Last night was no exception. While *the fam* watched the game, I spent some QT with my daughter and a few minutes on the treadmill. That's just how I roll…and I can see the best commercials today, so I missed nothing.

but I digress…

Although I had no intentions of watching the game, Hubs did ask me who I was rooting for, The Colts or The Saints. I quickly replied with the latter, to which Hubs asked why. It's simple. Reggie Bush plays for The Saints and Kim Kardashian dates him, so I know who he is and therefore feel more familiar with that team. After a quick eye roll, Hubs tells me that I know Peyton Manning as well. My reply was this: No, I do not know who Peyton Manning is. What I do know is that his brother is Eli Manning who played in the Super Bowl a couple of years ago against The Patriots, whose quarterback is Tom Brady, who is married to Gisele Bundchen.

So, the moral of this story: If a player graces the pages of Us Weekly or is a regular on TMZ.com, I know who he is and will root for his team.

Below I have listed a few other ways for an NFL team to be noticed by yours truly:

  • A player falls out of the back of a moving truck during a domestic dispute (Chris Henry, Bengals)

  • A player is murdered by his mistress (Steve McNair, Titans)

  • A player is shot in the leg during a home invasion (Sean Taylor, Redskins) -- in this case, the fact that his love was Andy Garcia's niece didn't factor in at all

  • A player makes a big show of retiring from the NFL and then immediately returns (Brett Favre, Packers/Vikings)

  • A player graduates from my high school (Wes Welker, Patriots)

  • A player has the name Adrian Peterson, aka Hubs 'man crush'


  • I am done impressing you with my vast knowledge of football now.

    The End.
