Read that. They try and cheer a vicious hit.
Instead try this...fast...do the opposite of the rest of the country and give your body a break and don't eat at all while everyone is stuffing themselves with pizza and wings. You will feel amazing tomorrow morning.
Donate time at a homeless facility. The country is consumed with conspicuous consumption. Hundreds of private jets will fly into Minneapolis today. Give something back to those who are less fortunate at a time when (unlike Christmas guilt) no one is talking about the poor and homeless and the hungry anymore.
The NFL has become synonymous with jingoism-patriotism. You can't attend a game without lengthy time devoted to the national anthem, military jets flying overhead, video feeds of troops overseas. Football has nothing to do with patriotism. Nothing. You can be a solider and sacrifice your life to your country and not like football. You can be a patriot and not like football. You don't need to stand with your hand over your heart and sing patriotic songs under the scrutiny of your neighbor eyeing you. Are you singing loud enough? Do you really believe the words? If you are faking it, they will report you. A football game is becoming more like a forced North Korean military rally than a game.
Spend a quiet afternoon reading Rupi Kaur's poetry. She will touch your soul. A five yard run off tackle will not.
But tradition is tradition. So for your enjoyment, we give you our super bowl analysis.
Coin toss lock: Heads.
Cheater FG will be first score.
Under 24 points first half.
And ...... forgo the points and take the money line, because tonight, in the streets of Philly, they will be singing "Fly Eagles Fly, on the road to victory..."
From Occupied America, try doing something different than the crowd. It will make you a better person. Fight the power. Don't watch the super bowl.
