So my wife decided she’d had it with our malfunctioning Dish Network box and canceled our service … on Saturday.
So not only do we not have television until Thursday, I couldn’t watch the Super Bowl pregame show. Which was fine – we were going to our friends’ house for the actual game, and missing the pregame just meant I was able to get some things done around the house before turning into a gluttonous fool the rest of the day.
But I didn’t realize that I had to get back home by 7 so my daughter’s mother could pick her up.
I can’t tell you, as a football fan, how wonderful it felt to wake up this morning realizing I missed almost all of the fourth quarter of what so many sportwriters are calling the greatest Super Bowl in history. Awesome. Thanks for that.
