But before Valentine's day, it's Superbowl time! Woohoo! Not because I like the game (football to me is and always will be what you understand by "soccer". It doesn't make any sense to call a game "football" when you only kick the ball a few times per game); but it's just a show. It seems there is a lot of focus on the commercials, and the half time show- not so much about the game itself, or maybe that's just me because I don't get the game...
It's very different from baseball (the other great American sport). I do enjoy baseball a lot, and even though last year's world series was between two teams I'm not very fond of (Yankees Vs Phillies), it was a competition - and a very good one. I found myself rooting for the Yankees. Only because I ♥ NY - and I don't like the Phillies; they won the previous year and the last thing we (Mets) need is them winning two years in a row.
I never thought I would enjoy baseball the way I do. I just associate it with a great summer day, unlike "football" that is played in some serious cold weather. I see the fans and all I can think is that I would be extremely miserable out there. But anyhow- it's Superbowl time!
I made some football shaped cake (balls?) for some hard core New Orleans Saints fans I know.
