Here in the UK we do have the Superbowl on Sky. It starts at 11pm and finishes way into Monday morning. I watched it all the way through when I was "into it" in the 1980s but that was due to our soccer not being as popular then... Anyway, how do you celebrate this big event? Do you watch it with lots of friends in someone's house or do you watch it in a bar, I'm interested to know. Do you care who wins?

Ick - ick!! Hate football! Never watch it! Sometimes I'll tune in just to see if the traffic is going to be a problem, if the local university team wins or some such nonsense... I honestly could care less.

Well, I didn't expect every American to like American football, to be honest. You either love it or hate it...like any sport I suppose.

New Oreans Saints v Indianapolis Colts according to Sky News, so it must be right lol. I don't know anything about those teams, only the LA Raiders years ago, that team doesn't even exist now!

My husband was watching it. I was in the same room reading a book. I only really watched the half time show. Not much of a football fan...

From what my hubby told me I believe the New Orleans Saints won? Something positive for that city to shout about for a change.

I won't be doing anything. In fact I'm not even watching it. I have my pick on who I think will win and that's it. I may check the score from time to time but that is about it. I used to be into superbowl parties and stuff but not so much anymore. If I was hanging out with a lot more people I'd be interested in parties but that's about it.

Thanks for that. Is baseball more popular than American Football or do you not like that either? I was just wondering what was the most watched sport in the US as (obviously) over here in England it's soccer.

The Superbowl is on during the middle of the workday here on Monday morning. I do not follow the sport as I find it frustrating to watch the stop start nature of the game. I also do not understand how they can call it football when they throw the ball and very rarely kick it. The only true football is soccer in my opinion, although I do not really like that either as they do not score often enough for my liking. I prefer Aussie Rules Football, it is what I grew up with, high scoring, spectacular, fast and yes they actually kick the football most of the time! I did get into American football when I lived over there as I was always out at the local bar watching Monday night football and had made friends with football mad Americans there. I had Tuesdays and Wednesdays off so it was my Friday night! I remember watching all of the preliminary finals games (they are called bowls of some sort too I think) but I had to work on Superbowl day and I remember there being a massive excitement everywhere there. I did get home in time to watch the second half though I think.

I think BBC1 are showing it as well. It's probably the only time of the year when I watch any American Football and so will stick it on tonight and no doubt fall asleep at some point. I have even got a clue who is in it this year and so you can guess that I don't care who wins, lol.

The "Superbowl" doesn't exist on my planet... we kitties aren't into competitive team sports. =^..^=

Haha! I think kitties would become bored very easily wouldn't they, playing a team sport. They don't get on with each other at the best of times.
