I'm Taking The Super Bowl Back!

I'm sick of everything that surrounds the Super Bowl. It's been true that Conference Championship Sunday is the best day for NFL fans because the Super Bowl has so much hype and bells and whistles that the game gets lost along the way.

Well, this year I'm not going to let that get to me. I'm shunning all Super Bowl party invitations and am going to watch the Super Bowl all by myself. I'm going to watch the GAME and not concentrate on the commercials. I'm going to ignore the plugs for "American Idol" and pay attention to the routes being run. I'm not going to be distracted by a buffet of junk food, but instead contemplate if Tom Brady is in fact the best quarterback of all-time.

This year I am going to pay attention to football and disregard talk of Gisele and Peyton and trash-talk and everything else that is not pertinent to the New York Giants facing the New England Patriots.
