Is football season over yet?

Having a new house has its advantages.  For instance, friends like to come over and bring homemade cakes and flowers.

On Sunday night, we lit our first fire in the fireplace….

…and Sarah and Greg came over to watch the Giants beat the Packers in the qualifying game for the superbowl.

They baked us a cheesecake for the game and we all sat around for hours, the boys enjoying themselves, and Sarah and I pretending to enjoy ourselves, while football season died down to almost the LAST GAME.  Praise Allah and all that is good.

I don’t understand football.  I mean, I get the game — a bunch of men in helmets and tights run a football down a field and have four chances to make it to the yellow line.  They jump on each other, run into each other, and break each others’ teeth and bones, Yippee — but what I don’t understand is why men feel the success of their team is a matter of life and death.

Watch Sean’s reaction to when the Giants win:

I don’t get it.  Why is the superbowl such a huge deal?  It happens every. year.
