You know, with the playoffs over, and the Superbowl around the corner, I have to admit: I like football. But not enough to really care. I grew up and live in Denver, so I'm a Broncos fan, but only when they're winning. I don't really care when they're losing throughout the season, even if I take the time to watch the game. I just can't get enthusiastic.
But when they're winning! Oh, yes, when the Broncos are at their peak! I can muster enough enthusiasm to... well... let's just say I'd still rather play video games or read a book.
If my team's not in the playoffs, I just don't care that much. I understand why so many people do care, and sometimes I can get really excited about a game, but most of the time I couldn't care less (and, yes, that IS the proper phrase).
I love Superbowl parties, and I love it when the Broncos make it to the Superbowl (something that hasn't happened in a long time). Until they start playing better, though, I'll just check in on their progress from time to time, and then turn back to Star Trek TNG on Netflix.
