Is The Super Bowl A Must Watch?

Why watch the Super Bowl?

At 6:29 Eastern Time the world will stop as nearly everyone will all tune into, if they haven’t already, to Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.

They’ll tune into watch the rematch of 2008.

They’ll tune into watch the rematch of week 9.

Most importantly, they’ll tune into watch the match up of the 2011-12 NFL season, the NFL Super Bowl between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots.

But why will they tune into that? Instead of Undercover Boss at 7, ABC World News with David Muir at 6:30, or America’s Funniest Home Videos right after, so you ask?

Because it’s the SUPER BOWL! The game of all games, the broadcast of all broadcasts, and even the best commercials of all commercials.

So let me answer your question with a question, why wouldn’t you tune into Super Bowl XLVI?

Heck, even the United States Government wouldn’t dare to interrupt it even with a National message that told us that all our lives were soon to be in danger.

The point I’m trying to get at here, is the Super Bowl is the game that your mom let’s you stay up late on a school night to watch. It’s the game that you miss your routine Sunday season episode for. It’s the game that Motel 6 won’t leave the light on for you.

It’s the Super Bowl.

So get the old clicker out and DVR the shows that you’re going to miss as even the commercials will keep you entertained.

Though, you don’t have to watch the Super Bowl. Except come Monday morning when you head to school, work, the grocery store, or where ever it may be, you will be that guy…or girl.

That guy or girl, that watched the news instead, went to bed early, watched the season premiere of Napoleon Dynamite.

So, let me ask you, do you want to be that guy…or girl?

No you don’t. So come 6:29 grab the remote, get of the lazy boy to turn the channel, fix the bunny ears, do whatever it takes to tune into Super Bowl XLVI, because trust me, you won’t regret it.

What Would You Do For $20,000 In Just 45 Minutes

Osi Umenyiora answering questions at NFL media day.

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora will be fined $20,000 for not attending a mandatory media day Wednesday. Umenyiora was fined not to long after he didn’t show up for his 45 minute mandatory news interview session at the teams’ hotel Wednesday morning. Due to not having a medical excuse like New England Patriots offensive tackle Matt Light had for Tuesday, Umenyiora was fined.

“I misunderstood the schedule,” Umenyiora said in a statement released by the team. “It won’t happen again, and I will be at tomorrow’s media session and available after the game. I apologize for any inconvenience my absence this morning may have caused.”

Now Umenyiora was at the media day the day before where he talked about his opponent Matt Light and how he doesn’t hate him as he said, “Matt Light is obviously a good football player,” Umenyiora said. “We don’t play each other enough for true hatred to develop. This is maybe my second or third time playing against Matt Light. There is no hatred there. Some of the things he has done, I wish he wouldn’t have, but we’re both professionals and he seems to be a good guy.”

So what’s wrong with that? He showed up on Tuesday and said what he had to say and answered what he had to answer, I mean let’s be honest what more could you obviously talk about him with him today? What’s his favorite color? What does he like to do in his free time? Is he dating anyone? Like seriously, what could the media have asked him?

They already covered the Super Bowl questions, the rematch questions, the Matt Light questions, and on and on and on. Now for tomorrow’s media day, they actually could have some things to ask, like why weren’t you at media day? Your response to Light’s comments and maybe what he had to eat yesterday? But fining the guy $20,000 for not showing up for 45 minutes to listen to repeated questions over and over again? Heck I would probably skip it too.

So Osi, as bad or as boring as it may be just go to the 45 minute session tomorrow and answer to the questions that are asked, or if you’re going to skip at least tell them your sick…cough cough.
