Or record it for that matter. I find that it’s a huge waste of time and energy, but it does seem to bring people closer together the day after in the office.
First of all I don’t watch sports, I don’t follow them, I barely keep track of the beloved Huskers except to see when might be a good time to go to the store. I don’t understand the fascination of watching people throw balls around. I really don’t understand the need to scream at a TV, it really won’t change a thing.
If you haven’t noticed the name of this blog it’s OntheDVR, guess why?? I don’t watch much of anything live. I even pay for Dish to get AutoHop on maybe 5 channels. It’s so sad when I’m on a cable station and it doesn’t just skip ahead automatically. I know I have a commercial section on here, but it hasn’t been updated in years. Seriously I think it’s been 4 years since I’ve seen a commercial worth sharing. Well except the Kia Soul commercials, but those are just awesome normally. So this is another reason why the Super Bowl holds very little interest to me.
Finally, Justin Timberlake, who cares?! I didn’t like him back in the *NSYNC days, don’t like him now. His voice grates like nails on a chalkboard. Last year I was almost tempted to watch because of Lady Gaga, but still just watched the replay almost instantly on YouTube. That for sure didn’t happen this year.
If you really care what I was doing while all of you were glued to the TV, I was sharing the fact that I kept a plant alive since October. Something tangible and worthwhile to share. Surprisingly enough I actually got people engaged in conversation over it.
So there you have it, why I didn’t watch the Super Bowl, and what I did instead.
