Super Sunday-Bah Humbug

It’s Super Sunday and while football fans everywhere are rejoicing, I find myself wishing it was Monday. Whether it is right or wrong, I still believe the Denver Broncos should be playing today. At the very least, the Baltimore Ravens should not be and watching them play for a world championship is almost too much to take. So I suppose its go San Francisco 49ers but in reality I just don’t care. Just get it over with.

There will be no pregame shows on in this house, watching the networks trip over themselves to heap praise on Ray Lewis would make me physically ill. Not to mention, the fact that they are going to show the Jacoby Jones touchdown over Rahim Moore about 100 times. I see it 1,000 times a day in my head; I don’t need to see it even more on TV. I’ll watch the game because in the end I am a football fan and it is the last game of the season, but I’ll be happy when it is over.

As for the next eight hours while the rest of the world is watching the endless breakdowns of the backups, I’ll be watching an NCIS marathon on USA Network. There’s nothing better to take your mind off of a game that your team should be playing in then a little, Leroy Jethro Gibbs. If I happen to remember that it is kickoff time, I’ll change the channel, but only if Gibbs says it is OK. Have you seen him when he gets angry, it’s not pretty?

Obviously I’m wrong about the fact that the Broncos should be playing in this game, otherwise they would be. However, even if the Ravens win later today, no one is ever going to convince me that they are better than the Broncos. Call me bitter, call me a sore loser, just don’t call me today. I’m watching NCIS.

Its Super Sunday, Bah Humbug!
