Super Sunday

It’s Superbowl weekend. I changed my yearly trip to Disneyland back to the last weekend in January so for the first time in years I’m not busy during the Superbowl. But I’m still not going to watch it, not even for the commercials. I asked God if this makes me anti-American or just anti-capitalism but she didn’t take the bait.

She pointed out to me that even though in some years the Superbowl is the single most watched event on television, still less than a third of Americans watch it. So that actually puts me in the majority.

I always have mixed feelings about being in the majority.

There’s a strong part of me that wants to be unique, but there’s also a strong part of me that’s happy to be part of a tribe. I’m not so much of a joiner that I would change myself to be part of a group, but I’m always happy to find a group that I can identify with without having to change myself. So, fellow non-watchers of the Superbowl… hi.
