Guys. I have completely, unexpectedly turned into the type of person who is excited (!?) about the Super Bowl. I have never before cared one bit about football (for reference, just last week I had to look up the different point values attached to different types of scoring), so this is new.

There are two reasons I'm excited, I think:
(1) The Carolina Panthers ("my" team - I'm from North Carolina) are playing in the Superbowl, which is not a thing that happens regularly.
(2) Now that I've played a competitive team sport (ultimate frisbee), I can kind of connect the happiness that I get when I play well (making good cuts, throwing well, scoring points, etc.) with the excitement that the football teams must feel when they play well. It sounds really dumb, but I think it helps me feel mildly more invested than I ever was before.

So, yeah, looking forward to actually watching the game this year. And then forgetting about it approx. 2 days later, because let's be real, I am the fairest of fair-weather fans.
