when the packers play the steelers

Published by cck at 8:03 PM

I'm not a huge pro football fan.  I enjoy college sports - more because I'm cheering for the University of South Carolina than anything else.  I remember Sunday afternoons with my mom watching football - usually the Giants, and for a short time, the 49's.  I cheer for the Giants because that's the team I inherited - like my eye color or my affinity for musicals.

There's a great story about my grandmother at a Giant's game.  I like to think she was keeping warm with a little nip, and when the spectator in front of her was talking trash about her Giants, she pulled his hat down over his ears.  I have a feeling there was cursing involved, but I can't prove it.

Do I care about the game?  No, not really.  But I honor the tradition of the Super Bowl with some wings and dip and a Coors Light.  I'm more interested in the commercials. 

I'm also online window shopping -- I'm pretty sure there should be a new name for that.  Online window shopping just doesn't cut it.
