It’s Super Bowl time! We’ve watched all the footage of Tom Brady and the “is it or isn’t?” sprained ankle. We’ve stocked the fridge with our Super Bowl snacks which in this house includes brats, chips and queso, and Oreos. Now, the question remains, just who will we root for on Sunday?
For most of the family, that answer is easy – it’s got to be the Giants. We love to root for the underdog around here. The Giants and Eli Manning are looking good with 10 straight road wins and lots of confidence going into Sunday’s game. They played well against the Patriots in the final game of the regular season, proving that they are not a team to be overlooked.
And yet, part of me won’t be too disappointed if the Patriots win their fourth Super Bowl. To finish 19-0 would be an amazing feat, and this team could definitely achieve that. Not to mention, I read a great article about wide receiver Wes Welker on ESPN.com the other day. I love to read “against all odds” success stories like this one, and would love to see such determination and hard work get rewarded.
Even if I can’t quite decide who to root for, one thing I do know is whatever the outcome of Sunday’s game, I will totally enjoy the experience of watching the game (and the commercials!) with my football-loving family.
Who are you going to cheer for on Sunday? Are you a die-hard Patriots fan, or are you ready to see a major upset with a Giants victory? Or maybe you’re just there for the food and fun!
