Why I Watch the Superbowl (even though I Rarely Watch Football or Sports in General)?


This weekend is Superbowl Weekend!!!!

Are you excited? Are you ready? Can you handle the EXCITEMENT?!?!

I really don’t watch sports that often. In fact, It is pretty rare when I do watch sports.   I am interested in many things, but out of all the things that I am interested in, the thing lowest on my list of interests is sports. It’s not that I don’t like sports, for me I just can’t get into it. It’s not for lack of trying either. I have read about sports. I try to follow sports teams that I am interested in, but it doesn’t last long.

I have gone to football, basketball, baseball, and even hockey games. I don’t obsessively follow any teams. I am a fan of the Tennessee Vols and the Knoxville Catholic Irish. I think the only reason for that is because I attended Catholic and I am currently at UT. I have gone to a couple of football games here and I have really enjoyed myself. Although usually when there is a flag on the field or when there are fouls, I usually don’t understand what happened or why. All the plays look the same to me.


Random Fact about Myself!

 When I was little I loved the Dallas Cowboys, but only because I thought their cheerleaders were so pretty and I wanted to be like them. I liked their self confidence and I thought they were cool.


Also my family isn’t that obsessed with sports. My father ran, my mother danced, I dance(d), did cheerleading, & ran, and my brother plays baseball. My mother is a Penn State fan (it scares me a little sometime) and I also have a great uncle who is into baseball and loves the Yankees. Although we have some athleticism in my family, we really didn’t grow up watching ESPN and going to a lot of sports games.

Despite all this every year we watch the Superbowl. I really thought it was weird at first, but over the years I have looked forward to watching the Superbowl.

4 Reasons why I watch the Superbowl:

  1. Everyone Else is watching it. Why not? Seriously though, there is no reason for me to not watch it and in this case I can hang out with my family or friends, whoever and watch the Superbowl.
  2. Good food to Eat. I like good food. Most times while watching the superbowl there will be nachos and cheese, pizza rolls, wings, etc. I love food. I have another excuse to eat all of this and not get weird looks. Yah for food!
  3. The Energy. I usually love the energy that comes with watching sports with a bunch of people. It makes the experience fun and enjoyable. Granted some people become scary, but I really do enjoy the people the get into the game.And My Favorite Part…
  4. The Commercials. This is my favorite part of the Superbowl. I love how creative they can be, I’m hoping though they will be less sexist this year. Women do watch the superbowl too.
