Grey for Superbowl Sunday

I'll make a shocking confession. Prior to last Sunday, I had never watched the Superbowl before. Sure, I'd watched some of the funnier ads on Youtube but I never felt compelled to watch the game itself as I never quite understood football. Hockey, tennis, basketball, soccer-- those are major sports that I find at least somewhat interesting to watch as I either play them or they are a national pastime. The rules of football and rugby, however, are nothing more than vague outlines in my compendium of sports-related knowledge.
Nevertheless, due to the immense popularity of this annual event, I found myself jumping onto the bandwagon and was surprised at how enjoyable the experience was! Honestly, I think it was only exciting for me because 1) we were cheering for the Seattle Seahawks (our neighbours and the closest Vancouver will ever get to being in the NFL), 2) the atmosphere was heightened by all of the people I was watching the game with, and 3) there was a great half-time show to look forward to. Bruno Mars was such a stud; I was so mesmerized by his amazing performance that I couldn't take my eyes off of him! And, of course, the Seattle Seahawks were incredible while Peyton Manning and the Broncos were more than a tad disappointing. I couldn't believe my eyes when Manning missed that snap in the beginning; what a nasty turn of events for the league's most heralded QB!
Last but not least, we had a ton of very delicious and, unfortunately, very unhealthy food to tide us over for the five hour get-together. Honey garlic wings, Tandoori chicken, chili, pulled pork, and sushi were just a few of the entrees; as well, there was plenty of drinking (or at least as much drinking as Asians could handle) and snacking. In fact, during the fourth quarter, I prevented myself from dozing off by finishing off two dozen chocolate almonds. Needless to say, I worked out pretty hard after that junk-food-ridden weekend!
Did you enjoy watching the Superbowl?
