Superbowl Sunday!

If you follow me for writing or Norse mythological related updates, fair warning, you’ll probably want to steer clear of my Twitter feed tonight. It will be all #Superbowl, all the time.

(And no, I don’t actually watch for the commercials, besides, we don’t air the really good ones on the Canadian newsfeeds anyway.)

I don’t have a dog in this hunt. Both my AFC and NFC teams were bounced before the big game. But don’t worry, the absence of a New Orleans Saints Baltimore Ravens Superbowl doesn’t fill me with sadness. I’ll actually be able to just relax and enjoy the game. So I hope Denver and Seattle both bring it, and that the Superbowl is exciting this year.

If I had to choose, though, (and I’m going to, because sports are more exciting with emotional investment) I guess I’m going to root for the Seattle Seahawks. They beat New Orleans, sure, but then at least the Black and Gold were beat by the winner, right? I’ve never liked the Broncos, going back to Elway’s days (before he turned his lose the big game legacy around). Explained best (as most things are) by The Simpsons:

I’m also not a fan of Peyton Manning (although I do really enjoy imagining dinner around the Manning family table, what with three quarterbacks in the crew. “Pass the potatoes, and try not to get intercepted again, Eli!”).

In any case, regardless of who you’re cheering for, or whether you like Football or Football, here’s best buds Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan getting ready to enjoy the big game:
