Things I’d Rather Watch Than the Stupid Bowl

It’s Super Sunday! The Big Game! Hours and hours of pre-game palaver. Sit in front of the TV set and stuff your face. And don’t forget the Super Bowl commercials! And the halftime show! And hours of post-game analysis!

Here at my place we’ll be watching the old BBC Chronicles of Narnia. But if I didn’t have a movie collection, there are still many things I’d watch before I watched the Stupid Bowl. Water swirling down the drain in my kitchen sink. Pigeons and squirrels outside. Clouds. The ceiling. The floor.

I especially wish to avoid the tasteful, modest, celebrity-driven halftime show. As tasteful as a jackal retching. As modest as a Clinton. As entertaining and edifying as Klingon pornography.

Somewhere in the mix there’s supposed to be a football game. Who cares? Pwogwessives are going to abolish football pretty soon, anyway. Wait’ll you see what happens when Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer go to work on it.

Narnia, here I come.

  1. There’s another option most foks don’t appear to realize is VERY valuable…NO TV!!!!

    THINK OF ALL THE TIME I DON’T WASTE
    THINK OF ALL THE TIME I HAVE FOR MORE VALUABLE THINGS
    THINK OF ALL THE WONDERFUL ETERNALTHINGS I ENJOY
    AND THINK OF ALL THE GARBAGE I DON’T SEE!!!!!

    Challenge: There are other assets. Name a few!

    1. Actually, Dorothy, we don’t have TV here anymore. People with 150 cable channels are always griping, “There’s nothing to watch.” When I visit my mother and, out of mere curiosity, surf the channels, I quickly see that the complaint is justified. Oh, what junk! We got better television programming in the 1950s when we had only three network channels and a couple of local ones.

  2. I NEVER watch it live, and where did you hear this:?? Paul Pwogwessives are going to abolish football pretty soon, anyway. Wait’ll you see what happens when Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer go to work on it.

    1. Obama himself, and some of the nitwits in Congress, have been babbling about government needing to get involved in football to eliminate injuries to the players. Rush Limbaugh has been reporting their comments on and off. You can probably find out all you want to know just by searching the Internet.
