- The two teams facing off for Super Bowl XLVI are the New York Giants and the New England Patriots
- Both of these teams have the word new in their names
- The New York Giants aren’t as new as the New England Patriots, though, because Bossy doesn’t remember hearing about them when she was growing up in 1925 and the Giants were purchased for $500
- It now costs the price of a franchise plus one-thousand-nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine more dollars to sit your ass in a Super Bowl seat.
- When you watch the Giants on TV, the commentators incessantly refer to them as the New York Football Giants to differentiate them from those other New York Giants
- Sportscasters are not the same as sports announcers who are not the same as color commentators who are not studio hosts or analysts or sideline reporters
- New York is Bossy’s favorite city
- New England is also one of Bossy’s favorite cities
- Eric Allen doesn’t play on the Giants or the Patriots
- One could argue every football player could be classified as a Giant
- Bossy favors New England Clam Chowder over Manhattan Clam Chowder
- The Super Bowl features lots of very expensive commercials that leave viewers wondering what was the product being advertised?
- Football is a game of downs. First down, second down, man down, countdown, letdown, downtime, takedown, downers, downfalls, downpours, markdown, downwind, slowdowns, downsides, meltdowns, facedown, knockdown, putdowns, rubdown, shutdowns, and finally touchdowns
- When the guy has the ball and is throwing that ball or running with that ball or catching that ball or preparing to do any of the above, it’s not a good time to stand up and dip your fist in the hummus, assuming you are watching that game with Bossy’s brother
May the best man win! Or in this case, the best fifty-three men.
