Quinte, On. real estate agent: Superbowl Sunday in Trenton Ontario

Superbowl Sunday in Trenton Ontario

It's Superbowl Sunday in Trenton, Ontario, and I was surprised to learn that it happens to be Superbowl Sunday all over North America as well. What a happy coincidence.

I have never watched an entire football game, the sport never quite caught my fancy. In my opinion the games seem so long, and there's always a thousand other things I could be doing on a Sunday afternoon. I know I'm not alone, the stores seem to be busy and there are a good number of people out and about doing things such as washing their cars, doing their laundry, or eating out at restaurants. I even heard that some real estate agents were conducting open houses today. I hope they had a good turn out.

I'm sure some people will tune into the game just to watch the advertisements. I have learned that Century 21 will be airing an ad during the game, which interests me a little, but that's not enticing enough to get me to watch the game. If the ad is good, I'm sure I'll catch it one of the plethora of shows that highlight the best of the Superbowl ads. If it isn't any good, then I'm sure I will run across it on Youtube at some point in the future.

The sport itself just seems so complicated, almost as if it were designed with television in mind, with the time outs, stoppages, referees with microphones, large numbers of players milling around, and almost imcomprehensible rules. I think I'm going to stick with the more simple English sports like the one in the following video. Now that's excitement.

Superbowl is a big deal for sports fanatics. I am some what of a fan. I catch it when I have time. I am not one to put my life on hold for the game.

Malcolm - I'm with you - I'd rather watch paint dry than watch the Superbowl!  Although, I must say that watching the attached video is also a bit like watching paint dry.  No, the only sport I'll watch on T.V. is tennis!  Hope you were able to get your car washed this afternoon!

Great post. Most sports are reactive. The audience just watches whatever happens in front of them. Not so, with football. You get to plan the next play too!

Malcolm, as a die hard football fan, I'm so with you - I don't like watching the whole game - I'm good for a couple of quarters is all.  But, if the BEARS are playing, well, as long as I can be on my computer while watching, I'm okay, LOL.

Malcolm, I don't really like to watch football but do find it a great time to get some work done, watch a few good plays, some great commercials and spend time with the hubby.  I watched the video and don't quite understand the sport, is it something you play as well?  Hope you are having a wonderful week!  --Krystal
