It’s Super Sunday.
T-minus three hours or so to kickoff.
And, I’ll be honest, I’m not watching the pregame show.
It’s testament to the prominence of the sport that Fox can justify four and a half hours of pregame content, which doesn’t even factor what airs on ESPN and NFL Network throughout the day. But by this time, I’ve heard virtually everything there is to hear about this game. I need to step away.
I mentioned this to my mother, who is back home on the couch with my father, watching college basketball. By backtracking through our Super Sundays as a family, we realized that more often than not, we’d built up to the big game with other games, rather than chatter.
Besides, I’ve wasted so much time stewing over this game and my prediction for it that I’ve ensured a long post-game night of catching up with tasks and obligations that await here at my desk.
