Super Bowl

Paul was driving the kids to church yesterday, I have to play for choir after church so I took a seperate car, and my daughter Elizabeth struck up a conversation:

“We have to watch the game today.”

“What game?” Paul was momentarily baffled because (watch out, this is scandalous, I know) we are not big sorts watchers and never watch the super bowl.

“The one with the Sea Hawks and the Steelers. We have to see who wins, my teacher said so!” Apparantly her teacher had talked to them about the big game and I think there was a canned food drive to go along with it.

“The Super Bowl?” Paul asks rather amazed.

“Yeah!” Dorothy pipes up, “My teacher told us about it too!”

The topic was forgotten as we arrived at church and no one mentioned the conversation to me until about 5:30 when Paul flipped the TV on and switched to the Super Bowl.

“Since when do you watch the Super Bowl?” I asked amazed and chuckling. He related the story and we laughed at how the girls knew more about it than I did and so we watched snippets of the Super Bowl with our girls so they could see who one. At one stage Elizabeth pipes up, “I want the Sea Hawks to win. Come on Sea Hawks, you have to win!!”

“Why do you want the Sea Hawks to win?” Paul asked.

“Their name is nicer. The other one is “Steal” with “ers” on the end and that isn’t very nice!”

Oh, I love the reasoning of children! 🙂 And I watched the Super Bowl for the first time in my life. (I know you are all shaking your heads at how pathetic I am. Hee hee)

  1. That sounds a lot like what my reasoning was for why I liked different teams when I was a little kid.

    We only watch the Super Bowl for the commericals. First commerical and Shane changed the channel (he’s a flipper), then changed it back, then said “oh ya, we WANT to watch the commericals during this program!”

  2. You’ve watched one more Super Bowl than I have.

  3. hey, i’m a hardcore sports freak and i couldn’t get into the super bowl. of course, i never do really. but i kinda hoped the seahawks would pull it off so long as i didn’t have to watch.

    i’m with dana, commercials are the saving grace of the superbowl.

  4. That’s pretty funny. Poor teacher is just trying to find a way to relate with her students… I’ve been on both ends of that, the teacher, and the clueless student. And then someday I’ll be the even-more-clueless parent. Good times.

  5. Thankfully I didn’t have to watch the super bowl… I can’t stand football unless I can go to a live game. Then it can be fun to let the enthusiasm of the crowd wash over you 😉 But then, what is the point of a bunch of men trying to ram into each other as hard as they can?
