Super Bowl Sunday

Post by Kip »

Anyone interested?

A 2 week buildup of pomp and circumstance will finally come down to the actual game being played today.

New York Giants vs New England Patriots.

Naturally I am a Patriots fan and believe that they shall win. That said, I also think that this has the potential to be one of the most exciting games in years.

Unfortunately not Kip...there's a proper sport on here at the moment...Rugby Union 6 Nations.

Enjoy it though :)

Certainly am!

I started watching back in the '80s when UK Channel 4 began coverage - back in the days of Giants/Bears domination (and the Refrigerator)
I've always liked Green Bay, but New England is my 2nd choice.
I'll be there on the couch, propped up with pillows, wrapped in blankets and with a thermos of coffee laced with something tasty from Ireland!
C'mon Pats!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

:schlafen: :schlafen: :schlafen:

'Real' football is on the TV today featuring Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs. This will be interrupted by TV adverts during the half time break.

The Superbowl tonight will have four hours of TV adverts interrupted by the odd 10-30 seconds game play of some dull version of Rugby, with protective body armor.

If it ain't got an engine then it ain't worth watching - simple as that really. Moto GP starts again soon - woo-hoo!

Commercials can be a bit much but that aside....

Different games are these 2 sports of American football and European football. Different type athletes.. completely different rules.....lifespan of these athletes....equipment.....force of impacts etc.....

I appreciate both and the different talents and skills required. 8)

Only real football (soccer) for me, thanks very much! Sorry, Kip. :)

I certainly can understand Americans watching their version. Each unto his own, and all that.

I haven't got taste for rugby, either. But that is a harder sport in my mind since there aren't really any protective padding. Hard geezers, those players!

The only taste of American football I like is the movie "Any Given Sunday", which, I think, is one of the best sports movies ever! :thumbup:

Same here though for various reason I was an Eagles fan. Can't stay up that late anymore, you enjoy it though.
