After a tough loss to the Jazz last night, I think all Laker fans could use a bit of a distraction. Luckily, today offers one as the NFL’s biggest game of the year is set to kick off this afternoon.
I don’t have a horse in this race but since I root for a team that calls the NY Giants a rival, I can’t bring myself to cheer for them. Meanwhile the Patriots are this era’s premier franchise and rooting for them solely for that reason kind of rubs me the wrong way (no one likes a bandwagon Laker fan, so I can’t be that guy for the Patriots).
So, I remain neutral and root for a good, close game – something that the Super Bowl has actually provided several times in the past few years. Meanwhile, I’m getting my indoor grill ready to fire up some burgers and find some relaxation and distraction from the craziness of this NBA season.
We’ll be back talking hoops tomorrow with Philly waiting and the Lakers hoping to get back on to their winning ways on this roadie. But today, it’s about the big game, good food, and a comfortable seat on my couch. Enjoy the Super Bowl, everyone.
