I don't get involved in watching any type of sports - I don't cheer for the Jays, Raptors or the Leafs. I'm one of those fake sports fans who jumps on the bandwagon when a team makes it to the playoffs. I think you are beginning to get the picure.
So today is a big deal for me because it's the first time I will be watching the Super Bowl. Suddenly after reading so many bloggers into the NFL and college football, I got curious and wanted to learn about the sport. Back in November, I asked Mr. Dee to explain football to me and he did a pretty good job but I need it to be explained to me in terms that I would understand. So, right before the Jets and Patriots game, I found this blog, Chick 101 - Football for Girls and read about the basic rules.

An incentive for watching tomorrow's game is my cousin has shared with me the details of the football pool she's in. She explained everything to me over gchat and now I must watch the game and send her a text if she wins. This will require me to pay attention to the scores and figure out if the squares she picked is the winning one. So much pressure...
I'm not cheering for a team because I don't know anything about both teams. For now, I am just learning the game so one day, I can find my favorite team and my favorite QB or player in general. A stupid question to ask and it's a question that a girly girl like me will ask - is there a team whose colours are purple and black? LOL!
Do you watch football? Who are you rooting for? Are you like me who is kinda clueless about the game?
