I go willingly

I know that many of you will want to send me to time out for this, but don't worry...I will go willingly.  Brace yourself......I don't care about the Super Bowl tonight.  

I know, I know it's shocking.  A gay chick who would rather watch ANYTHING else, has this ever happened before?  I've been invited to a Super Bowl party but the thought of having to act like I'm interested for HOURS is more than I can handle.  On this I am your typical chick, send me to the kitchen and let me eat dip, but please, please, please don't make me act like I know (or care) what is going on.  If there was a way to collect all the commercials and put them together, without the game interupting-I'd be all about it.  But no, if I want to see the commercials I have to sit through the game.  

So tonight I will be at home (not at the aformentioned party) making homework assignments, grading papers and doing laudry-focusing soley on the commercials until I get too tired and go to bed.  OH!  Who else is less than thrilled that the game is so late this year?  I know it's because it's on the west coast, but still...I have to be up at 5:30....a game that lasts too long and doesn't start until 6...I'd never make it even if I was interested.  So yes, I'm being a bad homo....off to my timeout chair.

The ONLY reason I don't care about the game is because my team didn't make it. I'm a total guy that way.

The ONLY reason I won't be watching it is because I start work at 6 pm tonight.

Sorry.. LOL... no support here.

Asphalt Cowboy-hopefully you were able to catch some highlights while you were at work, I heard it was an exciting game

Sabrae-I sat in my time out chair joyfully reading a book :-)

I also am a bad homo. Bad, bad homo. My son told me I was un-American. "Mom, not watching the superbowl is so gay."

It appears your femme side out-weighed your butch side in this particular instance. All you need to do is remodel the bathroom and your dyke chi will balance out.

Eb-You are so right about needing to balance my dyke chi! Oh, and your kid is hilarious.

I don't watch football unless someone else is and, ahem, expects me to, and then I read or do other things at the same time, chiming in at the appropriate moments and willing to accept excited hugs and kisses when the right side does well. Oddly I do know a fair amount about the strategy and rules of football because I dated a woman from a professional sports family.

I have been a lesbian for 35+ years and I almost failed PE in high school (but the butch teacher liked me ;) so I passed, thank god for butch PE teachers) and I never played team sports of any kind. So sports rarely generates much consistent interest for me.

I did watch Star Trek this year and read and blogged instead. Fun for me! I think the timeout chair would have been very busy if it had gone national.

Running Away with the Spoon-I'm not so nice. If I have to watch I root for the underdog (or whoever the room is not cheering for) just to keep myself interested.

I spent time with the cute girl and some other friends and was kinda sore about the Cards losing- I am like you when it comes for rooting for the underdawg...gotta love 'em...and if you have never seen Suzanne Westenhoefer's comedy bit about football...check it out

ok.. hold up... Tampa is on the west coast? lol.... Sorry I am late with the comment.. but yeah I am late with a lotta crap right now...
I just figured it was late so they could get that 5 hour pre game show in... ::pokin fun:: who knew?

The Surprise Dyke said...

Bammy-haha...it just continues to show that I have NO IDEA about football. Someone told me the game was on the west coast and that is why it started so late. I never actually thought to check my source (she's a dyke who loves football, her word was good to me) before posting! Welcome back to comment land :-)
