Super Bowl, Schmuper Bowl!

I don't mean to be negative about this American tradition, but I really don't care about the Super Bowl. Actually, for my family and me, it's just an excuse to sit together and eat a bunch of junk food. I honestly look forward to the commercials more and am a little scared every year about what to expect from the half-time show ever since the Janet Jackson incident. If this is such a "family" event, why do I have to cover my children's eyes during some of the commercials and entertainment?  Honestly ... give me a break!

I think the only time I will actually pay attention and show some emotion over the Super Bowl is when the Saints are in it.  I'm hoping that this will happen sometime in my lifetime. I do love the Saints! It's kind of a huge deal down here. I think it is required that when you come out of your mother's womb in the state of Louisiana, you are to be a Saints fan. Saints fans are some of the most loyal fans in the world. Think of how many wins they haven't had, yet the Super Dome is packed out and New Orleans is always ready to party. Though they had a 7-9 season, we all still love 'em. GO SAINTS! BETTER LUCK NEXT YEAR!
