Superbowl Sunday is this weekend. "But wait..." I hear you asking "You're not into football, why do you know about Superbowl Sunday?" Because the friggin radio, TV, random guy on the street, you name it, is telling me every 5 seconds or so! Is there a presidential election this year? I wouldn't know - all I hear about is football! AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
Seriously folks, you don't know what it's like living in Texas during football season. You may think you know - you may say "yeah, football is big around here too." But, trust me, if you've never lived in Texas then you really don't know. I grew up in California and didn't move to Texas until after I was married; so, I know what it's like outside of Texas. Football isn't just big here - it's huge! It's consuming!
I'm really grateful that the Dallas Cowboys aren't in the superbowl - the last time was, I think, about 12 or 13 years ago. It was much worse then - we were deluged by superbowl everywhere we went! The Cowboys colors are blue and silver; so, everything was blue and silver (which ends up looking like gray in many cases). The grocery stores were selling Cowboys cookies; they had football shaped meatloaf. They were even selling blue and gray tortilla chips and blue and gray bread - seriously, that's just not right!
The Dallas Cowboys are getting a brand spanking new stadium in Arlington Texas (courtesy of the tax payers); and, Superbowl 2011 is scheduled to be played there. Can I come to Utah that weekend?
