football happened

I could probably recount every football game I’ve ever watched and bore myself silly doing it.  I went to a few games in high school and college, but shrug.  I went to a pro game last year.  There was a rainbow and I took a neat photo with a faux tilt-shift effect of the little players on the field.  Such is the level of my interest in the playing of the game.

And yet, it was a weekend rife with the stuff.

On Saturday, we watched the Oscar-winning documentary film, Undefeated, about a Memphis high school team with a chance to be winners after decades of suckitude.   Amy posted about it last week and as she is a benchmark of fantastic in my ledger, I wanted to give it a go.  It was crazy compelling and interesting to see this underdog storyline with the motivational coach without all of the spit and polish that you’d see in a regular movie version.  The David and I both got really wrapped up in it.

And then, as if that wasn’t enough footballism, we went to a Super Bowl party on Sunday.  I’ve done that once before and had been promised that people don’t really watch the game; it’s just a party.  But that dude was just trying to woo my Jessica and that promise was a lie.  People watch the Super Bowl and they don’t stop until it is over.

I don’t know if it was because there was a San Francisco team involved or because we were plopped on a couch front and center, but I actually really got in to yesterday’s game.  I did some hooting and some hollering and was quite disappointed that the 49’ers didn’t win after all that hopeful comebacking.

I think I actually liked it.  I feel weird now.

Also, I totally want to buy a farmer.

    That was awesome. And I almost cried during the spot about the farmer. Seriously now. I must not be watching enough TV. Xoxox
