The Significance of Superbowl Sunday

I’m sure there are some of you who are getting together with friends, getting the wings and pizza and cokes ready for the party you are going to have tonight watching the Superbowl. Others, I know, don’t care anything about the Superbowl. Maybe your team isn’t in it and you’re bitter. Maybe you don’t like professional football, or maybe you don’t like American football at all. For you, I wanted to share what I think is probably the most significant thing about Superbowl Sunday:

It’s two weeks til pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.

    Oh dear. That’s not a message I needed to hear at all.

    I was pretty sure you would like that.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my Sunday – walking around barefoot in the sun, tossing a frisbee, eating food, hanging out with cool people, sitting on the roof of my friends’ house…I just didn’t understand why it was necessary for the tv to be on the entire time.

    Definitely not excited for baseball season. How is it possible that you can talk about baseball 10 months out of the year? Didn’t it just finish?

    Spring Training starts this week. So excited.

    Yes, it did just finish in November. You might be surprised, but there are a good number of baseball fans who would like the season to be shorter (me, among them). Before the playoffs it was fine to have 162 games. But now with three playoff series, it’s just too late in the year by the time it’s all over.

    And I can talk about baseball 12 months out of the year. So count your blessings.
