The nation is on fire! The Packers vs. The Steelers! The chips aisles in grocery stores are emptying and folks are sharing recipes for super-treats.
Everyone is excited. Everyone it seems except for me.
I love football. Love. It.
I thought that this year was THE year. The year of The Giants.
Alas, they were eliminated from the playoff race early despite a winning 10 and 6 record.
The pretenders, The New (Jersey) Jets, had a longer season and I was expected to root for them in lieu of my team.
NOPE! I couldn’t find it in me to go with the “home” team (as some of my fellow NYers did at the end) because the Gmen were out of the race.
I will watch the show tomorrow. I want to see the great commercials.
I’m sure I’ll enjoy watching great plays, but my heart won’t allow me to root for either team. I’m waiting for next year.
