Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 51’s Topic: Football Sunday.
Gosh, what a lazy Sunday.
I was really looking forward to watching the Super Bowl with my friends, but I was feeling really sick and tired when I woke up, just completely out of it. I wouldn’t have been much fun in my state, so I ended up staying inside my place and chilling out.
By the time the Super Bowl rolled around, I just watched the live stream of the game, plus I ordered from a pizza place to eat something throughout the match. It was my own mini-celebration, as you will. Not exactly what I had in mind, but it was fine.
As for the game itself, I actually got really into football when I got into college. I really got to liking the game itself from a strategic standpoint, and knowing the rules does help you understand how every play unfolds.
I am neither a New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks fan (the Cincinnati Bengals will always be my favorite pro team), but this Super Bowl was hyped up to be an exciting match on paper, and boy it was. From start to finish, I wasn’t really sure what team was going to win in the end. It was close on both sides, and it was refreshing not to watch such an important football be a blowout.
The game being close made it more enjoyable, though fans of the Seahawks won’t be happy for a while (the last offensive play made by Seattle will be scrutinized until the end of time.)
The halftime show was good. I enjoyed the Katy Perry performances.
Good choreography. Great stage effects.
Lots of energy.
It was much better of a show than years past. Heck, some of the other ones I don’t even bother to remember. They were that forgettable.
Of the Super Bowl commercials I paid attention to, there weren’t many that were noteworthy for me. Lots of consumerism, lots of family stuff … I miss the days where people literally looked forward to the commercials because they would be entertaining. I got maybe two chuckles throughout the entire Super Bowl.
Football aside, I guess today made me realize I really do need to make more friends. Watching something like the Super Bowl is a very sociable activity that would have been 100x more fun with some actual company.
Again, it was fine that I got to watch the game at my own leisure, but being that loner on certain days just feels, well, lonely. I really did wish I had someone else to talk about what I was seeing on screen. Sure, I had pizza stuff, but pizza stuff can’t converse with me as to why the Seahawks blew away their lead at the worst possible time, allowing the Patriots to mount their crazy comeback.
Oh well. At least for this upcoming day, I get to have another day off. It’s been a month or so since I have had two days off in a row, so I am excited.
Another day. Another chance to rebuild my life.
