I'll be at home on the couch in Oslo, Norway.... they've just recently started broadcasting these games here by the way - To pull out an McD slogan "I'm lovin' it!"

Fallen asleep watching the games quite a few times now though. Recently got a hookup to watch the NBA games as well but they're usually at 2 in the morning so I tend to catch only the first quarter before falling asleep on the couch!

Honestly, i no longer care in the slightest. I'm a sports freak and used to watch it religiously (as well as other games/highlights when i could), but now i get so really fecked off by the advert breaks that i boycot it.

Yes the Americans like their adverts, but that takes it to serious extremes. And though they may not realise (or even care) it really does turn off large chunks of the rest of the world when the physical game is stopped so some fat corporations can run their adverts on TV. I'd probably pay to be able to watch the game straight though or certainly transfer some of my wages to the otherside of a bar, but now i actively boycott it.

Well the Eagles finally made it lol. Patriots are starting to piss me off. I will watch it of course, but I wont enjoy it unless its a nail biter which it wont be. Good ol' Miami had to suck this year. Sigh* Those guys just cant be great...always good..but never great...stupid Ricky...marijuana cant be THAT good hehe.

We'll see. I may have to work, but if not, I'll watch it here and there at home. Unlike Gelli, I do like the ads, but because it is shown in Canada, Canadian ads are dropped in, in place of the funny superbowl ads. There are only so many "Rita MacNeil Special" ads I can stomach (Canadians know what I mean). The only way to catch the American telecast is if we find someone or a bar with an illegal U.S. satelite hook-up. If I do watch the whole thing, I will be boycotting the half-time show. It takes away from the game, and as a sports fan I find that it's just degrading to the sport (lest we forget the whole "wardrobe malfunction" incident from last year ).

Go Patriots!

Katie ;)
