I’m not a big fan of American Football (Canadian Football, on the other hand), and I’m especially not a big fan of obnoxious and vapid television programming.
Superbowl Sunday is virtually a secular holiday in this country. The streets and stores will be empty for a few glorious hours, and America’s most obnoxious will be self-sequestered on hideous oversized puffy couches in front of their 65 inch TVs drinking absurd amounts of watery and sweet American-style lager and scarfing down Buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing.
On Sunday I will not be watching the Superbowl (there won’t be any good commercials this year anyway).
So what are some other things to do on Superbowl Sunday?
Where ever there might normally be a crowd on Sunday, you’ll find wide open aisles, tables, and venues.
Or, perhaps I’ll be compelled to visit Ikea. I *hate* Ikea. But I hate a crowded Ikea most of all. Sunday, during Superbowl, all those obnoxious people mentioned above will be on their couches at home, so Ikea will be less hate-rendering than on a usual Sunday.
Or, maybe I’ll get out of town; head to the coast or the mountain.
Parks, museums, and pubs that don’t have TVs; they’ll all be almost empty too.
Really, the world is your oyster if you’re free from the clutches of the NFL and NBC on Superbowl Sunday.
