Super bowl? Two readers emailed to ask why I haven't been commenting on the super bowl (or, as I like to call it, the “stupor bowl”) game that's happening today. Obviously these two readers don't know me well. For their benefit (as well as for my other readers who may not understand about me and sports):
I don't know anything about sports – I cannot even reliably identify which sport is being played in any particular game. I don't know how the games are played, or what the rules are. I don't watch or follow any sports. I don't know the names of any sportsmen (or women). I don't care about sports. I don't have any favorite teams. I don't “root” for any teams. I don't even know the names of any teams. I care about sports less than I care about the abundance of fleas in Irkutsk, less than Debbie cares about stray inductance in 5% carbon film resistors, but slightly more than I care about Hillary's career opportunities.
Just to be clear for the more obtuse: I will not be watching the super bowl game today.
Actually, the only reason I even knew it was today is because it showed up in the news that I read.
