Skipping the Super Bowl
It turns out the Super Bowl is going to prosecute churches for having "Super Bowl Parties". They got Congress to pass a law against the dangerous practice of showing the Super Bowl on a screen larger than 55 inches to large groups of people. They are afraid it will cut down on the number of "screens viewed" which is how they get paid. Instead of factoring in that Super Bowls are going to have a larger than average per-screen audience, they get Congress to pass this idiotic law.
I was looking for an excuse not to waste three hours of my life watching that thing. Thanks to their corporate greed I am going to boycott the game. I don't follow pro sports much anyway. I mean, most of those guys wouldn't give you or me the sweat off their socks if we were dying of thirst, so why should I get wrapped up in their lives? I just regret that it means no one will be at the rec center to play pick-up basketball with.
It looks like I get three or four hours of extra life tomorrow. Maybe I'll spend it doing something useful.
