Are you watching the Super Bowl today?

I'm off to a Super Bowl party later in the day. I no longer care that much about NFL football, but it seems to be my duty as an American to watch the game and take in a few commercials as well. I know that American advertisers would love it if people around the world watched the Super Bowl. Is it easy to find on TV in places like Great Britain, India, the Philippines, and Australia? Do most Americans really wind up at Super Bowl parties today, whether they care about the game or not? Inquiring minds want to know. For the record, it's between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. I think I'll be rooting for the Patriots, if only Because Tom Brady is up there with Joe Montana as one of the great quarterbacks of all time, plus I always root for the "old guy" (Brady is 39).

I don't really care about the Superbowl. I found a meme with grumpy cat on it. The caption "I hope both teams lose". Lol sums up my feelings

That kind of represents my feelings toward the NFL at this point.

@thehorse I can't ever spectate. It feels too much like I'm just watching everybody else having fun.

@xFiacre I'd rather play. But not in the NFL. If a 300 lb lineman tackled me, I think I'd break three bones.

It's all pretty silly to me But I'll watch anyway. If there are fun people at the party, I'll probably concentrate more on them than on the game.

@infatuatedbby Maybe the Whole Foods crowd isn't the Super Bowl crowd. We'll see what's up at Trader Joe's. Kickoff isn't until 3:30 CA time.

No Super Bowl parties for us. We aren't fans of football. Hubby was flipping through the channels and found Kitten Bowl. If our granddaughter were here she would have been delighted with that. As of right now, it is 7:47 a.m. and I still don't know who won. LOL.

I left pro football and the Super Bowls behind when I moved to Israel.

How long have you lived there? Are you American by birth? One of my college friends (from Illinois) moved to Israel in the '80s and has been there, on a Kibbutz, ever since.

@TheHorse The Horse, I was born in Minneapolis and grew up there. I came to live in Israel in 1986. I cannot live anywhere else too.I have been here 31 years. I have dual citizenship. I am American citizenship and Israeli citizenship.

Tomorrow I will be running around as well. Right now Im doing laundry and dishes and grading in-class assignments. Does that count as "multitasking"?

@TheHorse I would qualify that as multi tasking. And your commenting on Mylot as well.

No Super Bowl here. Will watch the Kitten Bowl and the Puppy Bowl, however. Football just moves too slowly with all that falling down and getting back up.

Well said. Falling down and getting back up. Many people who didn't grow up with it think baseball moves slowly. That's the game I grew up with.

@TheHorse Well, we had only one TV in our house when I was growing up and Dad had football on from morning to night on the weekends. I just cannot stand the game due to overload as a kid and not being able to change the darn channel.

I rooted for Atlanta. I hate New England. As a Raider fan, I am still bitter about the Tuck Rule game over ten years later!

I watched maybe five minutes of today's game. I did decide on a favorite commercial (obligatory) and correctly predicted that New England would come back and win. But I mostly had some good conversations with adults and played with some kids at the party.

It turned out to be a pretty good game. I predicted that New England would come back in the second half.

I like bowls of rice if there is some spicy Indian, Thai or Chinese food near. I will watch the Super Bowl with feigned enthusiasm.
