Getting back in the swing of things around here with a little Flashback TWHS to last year’s Super Bowl. It was our first year at our new home in Virginia, so it was our first year not hosting our annual Super Bowl party and I was a little sad:
Josh: “Should we bring the other TV in here for the Super Bowl?”
Cailyn: “What for, it’s only on one channel?”
Josh: “So we can have two TVs with the Super Bowl on. Like at a bar.”
Cailyn: “I really feel like the extremely large and slightly embarrassing 60 inch screen we have is enough…but if you want. And let’s remember this moment when I beg for both TVs in here during March Madness to watch more than one game and you laugh at me because its basketball.”
Josh: “The answer is no. It’s basketball.”
And thus further explains this difference in our sports fandoms: I watch any sport, all sports, all the time. I love the story lines, I love the games, I love the players, I love it all. Josh would be happy with just football (college and pro) for the rest of his life. Meanwhile, I stayed up until 1 am last night watching live Australian Open coverage of the Mixed Doubles Semi-Final. Mixed Doubles. Semi-final. I bet most people didn’t even know the majors still played Mixed Doubles championships. I’m not saying I was the only person in America watching, but I am sure it wasn’t breaking any ratings records.
PS: The intriguing storyline for me was Martina Hingis was playing – I loved her before she retired from singles and thus wanted to see her win. Spoiler: She did. On to the Finals.
And finally, because what post is complete without a cat…
Yup. That’s Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski and a kitten. You’re welcome.
And go PATRIOTS.
