When I was a kid it was all about the game. But between Deflate-gate, media flaps, and the rest of the baggage that accompanies America’s most popular professional sport, I’m ready for some football.
What surprises me most, listening to the week-long pregame show this week, is how upfront media personality are about their collective vacation in Arizona. Half the on-air conversations are about how much the journalists drink and carouse while waiting for the game. Is this new? Was I this naïve as a child? Have we simply reached a point in our culture that we’re too oversexed or undersexed or stupid that this is all we can come up with?
Also, note to self… father-son trip to Super Bowl week some day. When he’s older.
