Today is the Super Bowl, the ultimate showdown of athleticism and sportsmanship in the known universe. As far as Americans know, this is the most watched sporting event in the world with upwards of 150 million people (a few of them sober) watching.
Some folks may claim that “Soccer” – or American Kickies and Passies as the British call it, has more viewers as the recent Man City v Chelsea match had 650 million people watching it (even fewer sober) — but no one can figure out the metric conversion on that data. So who knows?
As for the game itself, whether you’ve bet the house on the Seahawks or the New England Deflators — I just want a good, clean game. Hopefully everyone out there will just have fun. Keeping score isn’t even really required as that’s really secondary.
