Ten Things You Learn at a Football Party

1) All conversation stops for THE BIG PLAY, and then starts again as soon as the play is done.

2) It is possible for ten people to empty a fridge of all alcohol over the course of eight hours and still remain sober enough to hold rational conversations.

3) It takes three graduate students (among a room full of them) to figure out how to operate the self-timer on a Canon Powershot.

4) The idea that there will be an all-Pennsylvania Super Bowl is beginning to sound like a real one.

5) Steelers fans are crazy.

6) It is always possible to find Syracuse fans.

7) There is a feeling of disappointment when you can't help your parent, being "forced" to watch a football game at a convention, escape the boredom of a sport he or she doesn't like.

8) Kickers have an odd love affair with hand-warmers.

9) Between the Ravens, Eagles and Cardinals, it's a good year to be a (fan of a) bird (team).

10) There's no better way to end the day than with some old teen movies--like, for example, The Craft.

  1. I like football but I always have an eye towards the next Yankee season. And good job for getting a guest spot on Pete Abe's blog.
