I’m really not a football fan, but D’s teacher got him all excited about the super bowl, even though he’s never watched a football game, so we’re letting him stay up and hanging out watching it with him. Fortunately she’s a Giants fan (or at least a Patriot’s anti-fan), because I’m not sure my brother would ever forgive us if D rooted again them.
I hope she’s a baseball fan too, because I’d really like some company to watch the ball games this summer. I was a real baseball fan when I was a kid — I rooted for the Mets through some of the really bleak years in the 1980s, and was rewarded by the miraculous ’86 season — but haven’t been watching much lately. I figured out last year that it’s because I don’t have anyone to watch with.
Well, I’m glad that D convinced us to watch. That was a heck of a game.
