The Superbowl is a televised event wherein friends and family gather, beer in hand, surrounded by a lot of snacks and tasty foods, periodically cheering and groaning. Essentially, its like Oktoberfest minus the parade (we always had a parade in Kitchener- Waterloo) and with a bunch of men parading around a field in jerseys amd tights instead of Lederhosen.
I have nothing against the sport, spare me the cheerleaders (can we not modernize what it is to be cheerleader?), and concussions are definitely an issue worth resolving. I am sorry that the Patriots aren’t playing and their losd was so freaking close! When it comes down to it, I’m just in it for the beer, food, and excuse for a party.
Lucky for us Bostonians, we don’t even have to prepare our own feasts. Some of my favourite restaurants have half-time show worthy menus and all you have to do is reserve, pay and pick up.
