question of the day: Will you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday?

It’s the only secular holiday we have in the U.S. that is absolutely guaranteed to fall on a weekend: Super Bowl Sunday. And any excuse for a party, right? Yesterday I overheard someone being invited to a party on Sunday, and responding: “I don’t really like football.” And the inviter replied: “What does a Super Bowl party have to do with football?”

Will you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, either alone or at a party? Will you watch for the football, or just for the commercials?

I may have the game on in the background while I do other stuff, but if I do, it’ll only be for the commercials. I don’t really like football either. As ritualized-hunting games go, this is one of my least favorite. If the guys brought home a tasty mammoth when it was over, that’d be something to look forward to. But all they end up with is a trophy (or not) and massive brain trauma and early onset Alzheimer’s.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
