The SuperBowl is the go-to sporting event of February. Nearly everyone watches it, whether for the sport or the commercial… except for us. SuperBowl Sunday is usually like every other day of the year. Not this year, though. This year we decided to sit down, watch, and see what we could understand!
Warning: Our discovery was that we could not understand very much at all. Which was showcased by the fact that we all but gave up as soon as the halftime show was over.
Initial Reactions: “Wow, it’s like the SuperBowl is a big deal or something.”
As soon as the game actually started, one thing became abundantly clear. Our wait for the pizza man was infinitely more important than what was happening on-screen.
Team names? Unimportant. As far as we were concerned the “Fire Horses” and the “Black Cats” were playing.
The first few minutes of the game were apparently very eventful. To us, the flags must have been representative of different countries, or something.
All we really knew was this: The Fire Horses were kicking ass.
Also that the commercials were significantly more entertaining than the game could ever be.
Half-time came along and saved us! Or so we thought. Full-disclosure: we were unimpressed until Bruno Mars took the stage.
Then we were super impressed when Beyoncé took the stage.
When our SuperBowl party managed to blow multiple fuses in our house, we knew it was time to give up.
Go Fire Horses!
