Last night, I am proud to say, I didn’t watch a second of the Superbowl. I am really proud of it. I love America, but what a nutty country we have that people make a religion out of a football game played by two teams that most people don’t even root for or know anything about.
And this year, most of the ads were released beforehand, so you didn’t need to watch the broadcast for the over-hyped commercials. You were able to catch them all online.
I won’t even get into the bitul zeman, hashkafah and tznius issues.
The whole Superbowl is a sham, though it keeps people off the streets and crime and traffic are way down during the game. So I guess it is not worthless, but dumb it is.
Any other proud non-watchers out there?
