I get it. The Super Bowl is a blown-out-of-proportion commercial consumergasm, and we should all be better than that. All of that is justified, but as a football fan and die-hard Super Bowl apologist (yes, even this year), I was tasked with coming up with 10 good reasons to sit through the lengthy shillfest. And believe me, there are 10 reasons to watch it. I swear! Read on and I promise to share my hot wings with you.
The Olympics have pretty much been unavoidable -- they're all over the internet, TV, and the news, and some of it has been thrilling, some scandalous and some just disappointing. It's been the big topic of conversation around the water cooler and, frankly, it's exhausting to try and keep up with it all and sound intelligent, especially if you had to watch an average of about, say, 10 hours of coverage a day so you could write a daily blog. (Just as an example...) So while we've enjoyed the hype and the fun, we're glad this only comes around every four years (or two, if you count winter, and really, do we need to start counting that?) because we're just looking forward to getting back to our regularly scheduled programming. And that thing... what's it called again? Oh yeah, a life.
