The Big Game is almost here! I’m not really sure why watching men in short pants and big shoulder pads run into each other and grunt a lot is considered a national pastime but each to their own. I do know that cold cuts, crackers, tiny hotdogs, and chips are nearly sold out at the grocery store. Apparently, it’s also a day of continuous grazing.
Michelle Obama should be all over that! Put a ban on Super Bowl pigging out!
For the children.
I prefer to watch a great movie instead of sports, with or without popcorn. Or even a pretty good movie. Now if only Hollywood would make one. Waiting…still waiting…
Football does seem to be rather popular in America. Probably because senseless violence has always been a form of good clean fun for us folks in the civilized Western world. We enjoy watching men pound each other to a pulp, whether in boxing, football, hockey, or a really lively spelling bee.
Not to say that I don’t enjoy watching a little violence myself. I just prefer mine on the big screen.
|Braveheart was an exception to the rule of critics being wrong. Mel definitely deserved the Oscar!|
So, when the Oscars come around, I stay up to watch (most of it) and make sure I learn which pictures win the most hoopla – cause then I’ll know which ones to avoid. The movie critics are accurate with their thumbs up about as often as a forecaster is accurate about weather. Or let me put it another way. Movie critics agree with the general public’s preferences about as often as politicians tell the truth.

I really can’t tell you which two football teams are playing tomorrow. Sorry, if you came here for Super Bowl info. I’m sort of the anti-football info blog of all time. But I do know a lot of absolutely worthless facts I learned in school. Darn those teachers! Filling my head with nonsense when I could have memorized all the sports statistics that my dad and brothers learned instead.
By the way, if you’re like me and don’t give a ring of bologna for football, download one of my books instead. Now that’s entertainment!

Can we still do constant grazing whilst we read your book?
Allie Robbins says
Wow, I gotta read Split Sense…. the trailer is way spooky cool!
Barbara Ellen Brink says
Yes, grazing while reading is acceptable

Thanks, Allie! I think it’s pretty suspenseful and exciting…not that I’m biased or anything:)
