Normally I find the Super Bowl at least mildly entertaining, but this year I really couldn’t care less. The Saints and the Colts seem like nice enough teams and therein lies the problem. I really only enjoy the game when there is a team to root against. I need a bad guy.
The five of the last six years of bowls have included the Steelers and the Patriots, teams hailing from cities I despise. Boston and Pittsburg have some super obnoxious fans. Most of my enjoyment derives from yelling at these evil empires, much in the same way I enjoy yelling at the Yankees or Red Sox.
There’s just nothing to hate about Indianapolis or New Orleans. Dammit. So I’m not bothering with this year’s Super Bowl. Besides, pitchers and catchers report in 1½ weeks so who gives a shit.
