Am I The Only One Who Just Doesn't Give a Shit About the Super Bowl This Year?

Pittsburgh and Arizona fans, don't answer. I know your answer-- it's a perfectly understandable answer.

This might be the first Super Bowl since age 7 I don't watch. Sure, my boys got eliminated this year in a particularly ignominious fashion, but they often get eliminated and I always watch the Super Bowl.

This year I just don't care. My interest in football has been declining a bit as I've gotten older -- exactly why I am rooting for millionaires knee-deep in supermodels to have even better lives? -- but now my interest has so declined I might just take a pass on the big game altogether.

Is this just me? Is there something about how goofy the playoffs were -- the weaker team almost always winning (except Pittsburgh) -- that somehow makes this a dubious clash of champions?

Or is it just that I hate NBC and Bruce Springsteen? Who, by the way, have gone a combined twenty-five years since their last legitimate hit.


UPDATE [DinT]: No. You're not the only one who doesn't give a shit about the Superbowl this year. Although, I didn't give a shit last year either, so there. Still, it was quite a game, so maybe tomorrow will be too.

HDTV deals should kick ass next week. I waited. Yes I did.
