North American jellies, who will not be watching the Superbowl tomorrow?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25786 points ) February 4th, 2012

I won’t. I have a rehearsal for a play.

What about you?

Any particular reason?

Me, I don’t watch football and will be working a double shift besides.

King_Pariah's avatar

probably not because a) I don’t like the teams playing, b) my little bro has a piano recital.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Me because my husband has to go out of town on corporate business. He has to leave tomorrow. He is mad about that!

FutureMemory's avatar

Me, because I couldn’t care less about football.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’m with you @FutureMemory. It’s so brutal. I wish soccer would become the national American game.

TexasDude's avatar

I don’t watch TV, really, and I also don’t care about football.

I’ve got painting homework, too, anyway.

I’m not a sports fan, but if I’m invited somewhere, I’ll go to drink some beers and hang with the bros. Lol.

Facade's avatar

Me. I don’t watch sports, and we don’t have cable.

I have no interest at all. I’ve never watched any football game on TV. All I really care about the Superbowl is that I’ve learned it’s a bad day to go shopping in a department store, where all the clerks are apt to be hanging out in the TV department instead of helping customers.

The Puppy Bowl will be on for an overload of cute-itude while I do other stuff. I love the Puppy Bowl!

I do not even watch real football. Would not even dream of watching that fake rugby.

janbb's avatar

I won’t; not interested. I expect that my friends and I will be the only people in the Mexican restaurant all night.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@janbb : Although the demographic has changed a bit, it’s still predominantly men that watch the game, you may find a “ladie’s night” atmosphere at your dinner!

Given that Downton Abbey is on tomorrow night, that’s where I’ll be. I was taken to the Orange bowl football game in the mid-1950’s and did cheer my high school team on (where I was, astonishingly, a baton twirler in a tasseled hat and white plastic boots).

That’s my history with football.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

@gailcalled : Pictures or it never happened. :-) ~

janbb's avatar

@JilltheTooth Yeah, but a lot of women I know do go to Super Bowl parties. I have never been to one.

DeanV's avatar

I don’t own a TV, and would rather play video games and do homework than stream it.

gailcalled's avatar

@Hawaii_Jake: You cannot possibly believe that I kept those pictures, can you? I was really awful. It was always cold and damp, and I kept either dropping the baton or breaking my nails while grabbing for it. It was clear, even then, that I should have been the researcher hanging out in the stacks at the library.

I also practiced in my room, over the dining room and kept dropping the damn thing which really irritated my father when he was having his evening meal. I finally was forbidden to fling the baton around anywhere inside our house.

I will not not be watching it.

YARNLADY's avatar

I’m at the hotel for my delayed birthday weekend. Check out is around 1 pm tomorrow, and Hubby and I are going to tour some of the North County wineries.

Jude's avatar

I will be watching it.

Michael_Huntington's avatar

I have zero interest in Handegg. I’ll probably hang out at a book store or a record store.

SuperMouse's avatar

I will not be watching the Super Bowl because I have no interest in football whatsoever. I will probably be home most likely working around the house or doing nothing and liking loving it.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@SuperMouse : Nah, you’ll be here with me. I know how you roll!

augustlan's avatar

@Blondesjon I see what you did there.

We were supposed to go to a Super Bowl party at a friend’s house, but I think we’re staying home, instead. If I liked either team, I’d probably still watch, but I don’t… so I won’t.

muppetish's avatar

Not even remotely interested in football. I’m none too pleased about the twenty minute presentation that I have to put together for class Monday night, but I would rather be working on that than sitting on the couch and watching people tackle one another.

Pandora's avatar

Not interested in football. It may be a good time to go out to the movies, or rent a movie.

amujinx's avatar

I’ve been working on finding someone to do something with other than watching the game. Hopefully I don’t end up watching it just because no one is doing anything else.

@Dutchess_III I’m with you, I could do with more of the beautiful game.

filmfann's avatar

I am working tomorrow.

Symbeline's avatar

Nope, not me. I’ll probably be sleeping or killing something in some video game or another. Anyways I don’t even have cable.

YARNLADY's avatar

@filmfann care to share?

linguaphile's avatar

I will happily not be watching the Super Bowl. I will be at cheerleading practice all day.

MollyMcGuire's avatar

We will be watching—steaks are in the marinade. :)

Sunny2's avatar

I’ll be checking in on it while I get tax information organized.

Buttonstc's avatar

Along with Jill the tooth, ill be watching the Puppy Bowl, switching over intermittently with playing catch-up on clearing stuff off a very full DVR.

I have zero interest in watching overpaid testosterone-jacked bruisers pummeling each other for the privilege of carrying a pigskin egg up and down a huge field for hours on end.

I used to sometimes try to catch the halftime show but its not exactly been anything to write home about lately. Besides, if there were any standout performances, they’ll be re-running them ad infinitum for days.

Buttonstc's avatar

@Loli

That one goes in my image storage files. Thanks.

:D

Dutchess_III's avatar

What is the puppy bowl?

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Dutchess_III : Animal Planet runs it at the same time as the Super Bowl. Over the top cute of puppies playing in a pen that looks like a football stadium, kitten and hamster half-time show.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Is it worth watching?

Dutchess_III's avatar

LOL @ragingloli! SO have to find a way to put both pictures on my desk top for my husband!

JilltheTooth's avatar

I have it on in the background as I do other stuff, it’s worth checking in on for a dose of “Awwww” during the evening. Straight through, it’s a little cloying, but…puppies. Only a monster doesn’t like puppies! :-)

jerv's avatar

Me.

1) I don’t have cable
2) I have errands that can’t be done during the week
3) After seeing the Bears embarrass my home team when I was a kid, and Buckner screw up in the World Series, I stopped following sports.
