I don’t have much of a rooting interest this year and, yet, I am still planning on watching the Super Bowl. It seems to be an event that catches the attention of a lot of people – even those without a big interest in football. Some are watching for the game; some are watching for the commercials; many are barely watching at all, but still find their way to a party. I think there is some value to just having a few days when you get together with friends and having a good time in a way that is common to a lot of your countrymen. Whether the Super Bowl is the ideal vehicle for that, I’m not prepared to argue.
