Happy Superbowl Day!

Hamster Chip

I have decided that I will commemorate the Superbowl by eating nothing but chips and dip all day.  I have three varieties of chips and three varieties of primary dip, as well as three varieties of backup dip should I run out of primary dip, or if any primary dip should fail unexpectedly. (I have configured my primary dip in a RAID 5 array to minimize the impact of a hardware failure, but one can never be too careful.)

I considered following the lead of the Italian horror movie Absurd, which indicates that Americans celebrate “The Big Game” by dressing in their best formal dinner wear, milling around eating spaghetti standing up, and saying things like, “Darling!  Our team just scored a point!” – but it just seemed like too much work.

As for the game itself, I have a mild preference for the Cardinals, mainly because they’re the underdogs and they need it more.  But also because it’s really hard for a transplant like me to get excited by the home team, which makes the celebrations and triumphalist chest-thumping kind of irritating.  It’s only cute when your team does it, ya know?  The Giants really need to find a replacement for Plax, and to teach Eli how to throw in the damn wind.
