It is widely accepted that unless your own, special much-loved NFL team is playing in the Super Bowl, this National Holiday is pretty much all about eating, drinking and socializing interjected with a few cursory glances at the television.
Or is that Thanksgiving? Wait...is there actually a difference anymore?
Whenever we have people over for SB Sunday we play games - mostly involving gambling, natch - based on the action on the field.
(This year, upon darkening our doorway, guests will be required to pledge allegiance to one team or the other. When that team scores, fans will served watermelon shots. * evil cackle * I scored HUGE this year and have jury duty on Monday... I sincerely doubt I will be the only hung over juror at the courthouse. )
Since neither the Giants or the Pats tug at the heartstrings of any member of our household, we're actually looking forward to the commercials more than the game. So this year we've added advertisement betting to the action.
In the spirit of gambling on commercials - which seems redundant, no? - I give you highly amusing, politically incorrect advertising of days gone by.
