Due to my upcoming travels plans, I most likely won’t see this year’s Super Bowl. If my flights are on time, I’ll spend most of the game inside an airplane, with my seatbelt securely fastened.
Although the timing was accidental, I’m not considering it much of a loss. After last year’s boring blowout, I vowed I wouldn’t waste four hours on a Super Bowl again this year. I was only about three-quarters serious when I said it, but it looks like I’ll be honoring my vow after all.
By the way, did you know next year’s Super Bowl is going to be styled Super Bowl 50 rather than Super Bowl L? The use of Roman numerals goes all the way back to Super Bowl III played in 1969, but logo designers apparently decided Arabic numerals would be more aesthetically pleasing this time.
