Super Sunday, at last

Today is what the Americans apparently called Super Sunday. It is the day of the Super Bowl and for those who don’t know about it, it is American Football’s final game of the season, thus the Super Bowl. Yes, it might seem odd having a Londoner talk about a game which he has never seen in person, though he would love to. I have only ever watched it on TV, never been to a game, a little difficult when your favourite team is the Dallas Cowboys and you live in London, lol. I have been watching the game for about 23 years roughly, ever since Channel 4 first came on the air in the early 80s and screened this game called American Football, since then I have been hooked and watch it as often as I can, usually 2 games a week every Sunday on SkySports, thanks for that Sky, so appreciate it, giving me, my weekly fix of football. I know a lot of people don’t like the game, find it boring, etc, etc. Me, prefer it to our football, not a fan of watching the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea, etc, never am, doubt I will be either. Anyway on to the game, it is going to be a real late nighter for me, given the game doesn’t start until about 11.20pm UK time, so plenty of food at the ready, plenty of alcohol at the ready too. Prediction for the game, well the favourites are the Patriots and as much as I would prefer them not to match what my beloved Cowboys did in the 90s by winning 3 times in 4 years, I really don’t see the Eagles being good enough to stop the juggernaut that is the Patriots. So there you have it, neck on the line, Patriots to win.

Enjoy your Super Sunday, wherever you are.
