I have trouble understanding the superbowl.  What's so special about a breakfast competition between Cap'n Crunch and Cheerios, anyway?

I own a TV.  However, I don't subscribe to cable! (He said smugly.)  lol  So while everyone else is watching reality TV, I'm living it.  (And loving it, as Maxwell Smart used to say.)

Is that the kind of pride that makes people smugly announce that they don't own a tv?

I'm teasing with you, btw.

Year after year I feel a bit of self pride the week leading up to Superbowl weekend that I have no idea what two teams are playing.

First we were talking about wide redeivers and tight ends, and now it's porking. LOL

I like football so much that I stayed home alone to watch the game because I get so irritated with people distracting me at the bar (and I am almost always up for a party at the bar).  But then, I'd rather go hog hunting than attend an orchid show;)

That is very funny, because a few years, I came into school (I'm a teacher) on Monday, after a Super Bowl Sunday.  I walked into my lesbian friend's class to talk as usual.

She was all excited to tell me about she and her gilrfriend enjoyed the big game and blah, blah, blah.


I just looked at her and said, "Well, I did something much more productive yesterday, I went to the orchid show."


We had a good laugh over the stereotypical behavior, which we both enjoyed.

I've known few gay men and Lesbians who liked football and basketball, whatever that proves. I am not one of them. I spent the day en route from St. Louis to Portland. While in St. Louis I did attend the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden, which I suppose some guys would consider pretty gay. I didn't ask the other people there if they were gay...

Christpher thanks for posting the video, important stuff. Considering what people in some countries go through, it's wrong of the US not to accept people's word for it.

Whenever hetero males attempt to discuss football in front of me, I always cure their desires by telling them how much I like the tight ends and wide receivers.  Then I explain that the best part of the game is the locker room, with all that towel snapping and ass grabbing.  By this time, they are usually on another subject.  Of course, there is no hope for them tonight.  I got through the day by going to a pet bird show and adding some more canaries and finches to my collection.

My sister in law in Mexico asked me if I planned on watching the Superbowl and if I were there with my brother and a couple they know, would I chat with the women on the veranda instead of watching the game.  My response:

I probably would slip out to the umbrella as professional team sports seem to me nothing but sublimated Alpha male fantasies of combat and conquest, things that have always bored me to death.  Heterosexual males love sports because they fill up the gaps in conversations that might otherwise "degenerate" into unimaginable intimacies, which few masculine males allow themselves.  They can cheer for their teams and talk about what a great pass quarterback X just threw, and it helps avoid discussions of things like how poorly one holds one's water at night.  There is always a problem with what the banned psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich called "character armor," a reference to the macho front that men throw up to guard them against just such predicaments as intimacy with other males.
