A House Divided

We're a house divided today. It's a little "tense" in the TAO household. As some of you may remember, I am a big sports fan. My favorite team in my favorite sport is playing in the biggest game of the season tonight. It's a little thing called the Super Bowl. That would be all fine and dandy if the opposing team wasn't Husband J's favorite team in one of his favorite sports to watch.

We have been acting fairly cordial all week. Husband J is still a little sad over his team, the New England Patriots, loss to my team, the New York Giants, back in January 2008. Back then he was Boyfriend J, and I thought I handled the Giants' unexpected win that year rather well. I didn't gloat until the day of the Giants' victory parade in New York City. I can only be so kind. This time, we're married, so I don't have to be so nice. **evil laugh**

There are lots of other underlying issues I have with this match up that have nothing to do with Husband J that also have me extra fidgety today. I am fairly supstitiuous when it comes to my sports teams. After the Giants lost a few years ago to the Philadelphia Eagles, in a game I watched in full, I haven't really watched many Giants games since. I swore off watching their last regualr season game before the playoffs this season in December and every playoff game since. You know what? It's worked! They're playing in the Super Bowl.

Some couple friends are coming over, and I have already warned them about my aversion/lack of desire to watch (I was partially rooting for a Baltimore vs. San Francisco Super Bowl because I'd be able to enjoy it). My friend is already making threats to tie me to my couch to make me watch.

One of the best Super Bowl catches ever made

The Giants are just as superstituious especially when it comes to their food. They had their favorite post work out pizza flown in from Long Island, New York to Indianapolis just for their Friday practice. By the way, I'm not alone in my craziness. Check out this article.

That being said, I will use the Super Bowl as an excuse to pig out just a teeny bit. We've got pizza, chicken wings, some seven layer dip (I'm not making it, but I promise a picture), veggies and maybe some homemade brownies on tap for tonight.

Anyway, for those of you who are laughing at me and my love of professional American football, go ahead. Just wait for the Olympics this year! Just kidding. :)

We are both rooting for the Giants from the epicenter of Patriots territory, so it's a little tense around here too!
