Fear not. I have it on my DVR and I plan on watching the third and fourth quarters sometime this weekend.
I have a confession to make to you guys. Even though this year’s Super Bowl was the most watched game ever, with about 97.5 million viewers, I was not one of those people watching.
I know. I can’t believe it either. I LOVE the Super Bowl. I love Super Bowl parties. I even had one planned. Ack! I even called my buddy Beth un-American for scheduling her twins birthday party during the game. In fact, I am still in favor of making Super Bowl Monday a national holiday.
So you probably want to know what earth shattering event caused me to miss the big game.
Well, first my husband got sick. He was so sick that on Sunday morning I contacted all of the people that were supposed to come over for the party and I told them it was off. There obviously no way he would be in any shape to have anyone over. At about 2:00 I went to the store to get him some orange juice and soup.
By the time I got home from the grocery store I felt so bad that I had to lay on the floor for an hour. By six o’clock my eyeballs hurt individually.
You know what I think happened? I think I kissed that boy and got cooties.
So here I am with cooties or the plague or bird flu or whatever you want to call it, and the Super Bowl is starting, and as much as I love the NFL and the Super Bowl and the commercials, I just can’t bring myself to care.
Oh, I tried anyway. I even opened (read as, opened and didn’t actually drink) a beer in the spirit of things.
By 8:00 (somewhere after the two minute warning to end the first half and Tom Petty and his halftime show) I just gave up. I hit “record” on my DVR and I went to bed.
I am so ashamed.
Of course the underdogs won in an exciting comeback in the last minute, and from what I understand even the half-time show was worth watching this year.
Fortunately for you, me, the NFL, FOX and all of the advertisers some people (like I said before, about 97 million of them) did watch the game.

And Kay – well, she credits the New York Win to her troll and super natural powers. You never know.
