    Default Superbowl- any takers

    The Superbowl kicks off here shortly... any fans back in IRL of either the Steelers or Packers?
    When I came to the US first I thought American football to be the biggest waste of time ever played by a bunch of steroid bloated knuckleheads wearing more body armour than the army wondering around Anbar province & the length of a game seems more designed for ad breaks than sport but...
    The more I've watched it, the more I come to understand that it actually contains as much strategy as any professional ball game & some of these players are true athletes;
    > Anybody watching it? ( & yeah I do know it goes on until well after midnight GMT!)

    All the ad breaks are a killer , so not for me .: doc
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    I cant say I am a fan of American Football even though I once went to an NFL game in Tennessee but I might watch some of the Superbowl later.Which team is the favourite to win?
    The Truth is out there.

    I agree with the good Doc too many add's to many stoppages and it drags on and on.

    Writing this during an ad break- some of the commercials are priceless & more entertaining than the game;->

    Kill Bill is on at least. I did try to watch a SB a few years back, didnt even make it to the end of the first period. So boring. I wonder if it were PPV how many would get it.
