I'm still smirking today.
So, yesterday was the super bowl and I asked the appropriate question at family brunch .. .
Who are we cheeering for?
I was told by our eldest . ..
"fine by me" .. .I said.
I have some mighty nice people that read my blog from those parts.
Here is my geographical confession for the day.
This morning I went online to find out where exactly New England is.
So . . . I have some mighty fine people reading my blog from New England too ..
but yesterday I didn't know that.
After the Sunday afternoon napping was completed by the smallest participants,
the crowd thinned out considerably.
Mutterings .. . of "going home to watch it on our TV" was heard as they headed out the door.
I kept yelling .. .."what's wrong with our nice square proper sized television".
Ah, it's all good.
My beloved and I settled in to watch the game and the "American" commercials (thanks Terrence for pointing out that we could find an American channel for this south of the border treat).
We waited the appropriate length of time to pull out the appetizer goodies that I had the good sense to stop and buy on Friday.
Near the end of the game when my knuckles were turning white, I looked at my beloved and said. . . "are you cheering for the opposing team?" . .. I said in disbelief.
He looked at me and said .. . ."aren't you?"
I said. . .no .. . .Terrence said we were to cheer for the Giants.
No, he didn't hear that and was so relieved to find out in the end that the team he was cheering for in the last five minutes of the game won.
Oh yeah, we are BIG sports enthusiasts and proud of it.
I do want to point out that at no time did I ever blurt out .. . who is winning.
It says it right at the top left corner of the screen and I keep my eye on that so that my conversation relating to the game can seem intelligent at all times.
So, my knee has rested for the weekend, and it thinks it's good to go.
We'll see. I'm off for my walk,
have a wonderful day my friends.
