Writer's Block: Superbowl madness or sadness?

If you're in the U.S., will you watch all or part of the Superbowl? Do you have a favorite team? If you're not American, what do you think about Superbowl Sunday?


I tune in to the Super Bowl every year mostly for the music and entertainment from the commercials, and to watch the show after the Super Bowl.  I try to watch the mass entertainment shows on the networks like the awards shows and sports finales since I'm interested in the media and sharing a common experience with others.  It's also a time when I can watch with family or friends and sometimes have a party.  In my library class we heard about phrases that come up around sports like, "Who Dat" associated with the New Orleans Saints, and who should have ownership over those words.  

I was non-committal about which team I preferred though I heard more about the Saints than the Colts from friends.  The teams I support are usually the ones in the Bay Area, like the San Francisco 49ers or the Oakland Raiders in football, or the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A's in baseball.  Since I have family in Philadelphia, the Phillies baseball team is also one of my favorites especially with their recent World Series win.
