In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that I am not a football fan.
I grew up in football country. My lack of attention to the football games of my high school years, in which I played in the marching band but yet never managed to absorb the rules of the game, is infamous. My master's degree is from the University of Nebraska, one of the famous football schools. I didn't go to a single game while I was there, although in my defense I was working two jobs in addition to my classes.
David and I are invited to Super Bowl parties every year, and if I don't have other plans I'll tag along and read a book, glancing up occasionally at the commercials. This too has earned me much mocking.
This year I don't have to endure the mocking, as the final show of Love, Loss and What I Wore is on Sunday afternoon. I'm hoping that our audience will be a big group of women who ditched their husbands/significant others in front of the television and yelled "I'm going to go have some fun with the girls--don't wait up for me!" as as they raced out the door.
