First of all:
Umm, yes, thank you. It’s deliciously nerdy and I love it so. For the uninitiated, this is a mii created to look like Jesus. A mii is a self-created representation of your gaming essense for the Wii. My mii looks just like me and is called Smokey. Don’t ask why because I honestly couldn’t tell you.
There’s really no way to make a graceful segue from mii’s to the Superbowl, except to say, “So, speaking of cherry tomatoes…”
I ended up consuming roughly my weight in cherry tomatoes while watching the Superbowl with friends yesterday. As I’m still a newb in the football world, I spent most of my time cheering at the wrong times and peppering moments of victory with questions like, “Why is that good?” but we all had a terrific time regardless.
From what I could tell, the Cardinals did a good job. They certainly made the last half of the game interesting! Don’t take it from me, though, because trusting my evaluation of a sports team’s performance is a lot like listening to a gangster review the Pope’s most recent Mass.
Either way, they only barely lost, which, from what I hear, is almost as good as winning for how much it upsets the gamblers placing bets in Vegas. I guess they were supposed to lose miserably? Something about a spread, but not the buttery kind? I dunno, but apparently the people in Vegas had a bad day yesterday.
This is, depressingly enough, the tenth year in a row that the team I cheered for lost the Superbowl. I think perhaps it’s time to start cheering for the bad guys now, if only so that the team I like won’t lose.
Seriously, it’s like my support for a football team is the dread eye of Sauron and guarantees certain defeat. Perhaps this is a heretofore untapped super power that I can harness to shape the next Superbowl. Anyone care to pay me off in exchange for my enthusiastic support of the team you’d like to see lose next year?
