Super Bowl Sunday Equals Sleep In Monday

Some get the coveted Super Bowl ring - dh got the coveted Superbowl cookie!

I'm not what you'd call a sports fanatic. I'm not even a sports enthusiast. I've been to baseball games (American), hockey games (Canadian and American) and even one football (Canadian) game - but I've never warmed up to sports watching.

Therefore, I did not watch the Super Bowl last night.

Our church has a fun tradition for Super Bowl Sunday. After the evening church service the men and women separate - the men gather together at someone's home and watch the recorded game (and eat). My son primarily goes so that he can A) stay up later than he has ever stayed up before (he got to bed around 12:30 AM), B) so he can eat an inordinate amount of pizza bites, Doritos and chocolate C) so he can hang out with the men and boys. My dh goes to watch the game. The men and boys have a contest to see who can correctly guess the final score - with the prize being a large football shaped cookie.

The women on the other hand, pick up some fast-food take out, go to another house, and sit around and talk (and eat) and some will watch a portion of the real-time game that is still running.

I read an article on-line that said schools in Pittsburgh will operate on a 2 hr delay so the students (hmmm or perhaps the staff???) can sleep-in after the late game watching night.

In our house, sleeping in means sleeping til about 7:15AM...that is about the latest the boy will sleep so when he wakes up is kind of when the rest of us wake up.

For those who might have been disturbed by the wild-eyed double bladed war axe bearing barbarian boy in the previous photo...I just want to say that he actually is a very sweet little boy (just don't tell him I told you!). Very often he will just come up to me and give me a kiss and or a hug...he generally has very good table manners, has a sensitive little heart and probably loves reading as much as he loves to bear arms.

Football is a waste of time to watch! Give me hockey, baseball or soccer anytime!

We live near Pittsburgh and EVERYONE is excited. Well everyone except the people in our house who don't actually watch sports and don't have cable. We are about excited about that as about Ground Hog Day (We also live near Punxsutawney.) And your boy sounds an awful lot like mine of a similar age. Aren't they sweet (except when they are doing the barbarian thing) when they are that age?
