I had fun got together with family and friends and had some great food. Circus and bread for the masses, what would you rather of had warcraft and mountain dew for the masses. Too each his own, don't whine about what other people do for fun especially when it doesn't affect you.

Are you suggesting that because someone likes to watch a game of football they are "Ignorant"?

Ah, another highly enlightened one! Glad you decided to share that nugget of wisdom with us lower folk.

Yep time for C-Tzar to start up the games and quell the riots. You may be preaching to the choir here, but it's important to realize that there are actually millions of people to whom the Super Bowl is a big deal. Maybe the biggest thing to happen to them all year, despite everything that's happening around them. It's weird.

If somebody wants to watch t.v. drink beer and cheer on their favorite team let 'em, what difference does it make to you? I'll tell you what difference.....none.
Too many snooty cooks make a sour broth.
Too many holier than thou cooks make a tasteless miserable stew.

Let people enjoy their time how they want! Seriously, I enjoy the chance to sit and relax and enjoy a few beers while something's on tv...

And generally, it leads to more beer afterward.

Win win, bruh.

I would suggest that the same people would watch Gladiators kill each other again if they had the chance and the same people are fooled into team spirit in politics.

Every year there is more violence associated with this fun that people will sometimes live and die for. Have you seen the latest research on what playing football does to the human brain..how sad that we need to have violent matches to root for and feel we are somehow part of one side or another.

Or a team that can be bought sold and moved... belongs to us..our city, and the players, our heroes only destroy their brains for millions of dollars...shallow way to keep the masses occupied identical to what was used by the Roman emperors to control the down trodden masses.

sorry to let you down but my children do not sit around and play games all day.they practice english,math and learn what responsibilty means. they also practice weoponry with swords,knives,and hand to hand combat. yes they do have a video game console,but it is rarely used because believe it or not they prefer fresh air and the out doors.
does your 13 year old know how to snare and skin and gut a rabbit to eat,plus know how to cook it?
does your 11 year old know how to plant,maintain,and harvest a veggie garden?
or do they just know how to order from McDonalds?

What is even more disgusting is when a person can tell you the names of all the players for teams, current stats, what they love to eat, a$$ temp on the seat, etc. but cannot tell you one thing about current affairs, the state of the world, or piece together a coherent sentence that implies some sort of mental prowess...

You give your kids sword and knives and your making fun of people that watch football? Don't have kids but if I did they would have soccer balls, baseballs and footballs instead of knives and swords.
