My family, die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fans that they are, will likely disown me for admitting that I rooted for the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl last night, but I couldn’t help it. I like the underdog, and the Cardinals came so close to bouncing back and winning.
Football is not my sport of choice, so Gary had to offer a quick Football 101 crash course in response to my million questions, such as “Why doesn’t he just check him with his stick?” Ah, the hockey mind does not willingly shift to another sport!
Despite the glaring lack of ice, sticks, skates, or goalies, I still found myself getting into the game and yelling at the TV just like a good old-fashioned hockey game. Hmmm, I may acquire a taste for this thing called football. As long as there are no hockey games on, of course.
