So, don’t get me wrong, I love myself some football. but it seems like I won’t be going to any Super Bowl parties Sunday. and it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m too lame to have any friends (which I am). It’s because the WHOLE state of Wisconsin still is in mourning over that
horrible, sad, awful, embarrassing unexpected defeat a few weeks back. And I don’t think ANYONE in America’s Dairyland is going to be holding any sort of Super Bowl party. at. all.
it’s not because THEY don’t love themselves some football (they do). it’s because even when those big tough packer’s fans claimed they weren’t sad and they were just HUNGOVER they were lying and everyone here is just plain working through the seven stages of grief.
I mean, for goodness sake, I’m a bears fan, and i was a little sad. (what? if you don’t live here, you can’t understand).
Plus, there was the whole thing about how the newspaper I write for (in Wisconsin) was all set to have “all Packer coverage, all the time!!” and some of those articles were going to be written by me and i had to come up with ALL NEW IDEAS for the last two weeks. I mean don’t get me wrong, the good people of Wisconsin media still found ways to update the state on Packer’s news. (yes, the above linked article is about how the Packer’s home-field advantage relates to global warming). but it just wasn’t the same.
I’ll probably turn on the game (becuase as i mentioned, I’m too lame to have friends and i therefore have nothing better to do) but I’ll just be watching the commercials* in protest of the packer’s loss. so don’t be all asking me for my opinions on the different plays monday, because I won’t be watching them.
*although i do kind of hope eli manning fumbles. a lot. stupid jerk.
UPDATE: I lied. I totally watched the actual game. and although I hate manning, I hate the patriots even more (they’re cheaters, from what i understand). I’m really excited they won. 🙂
