We Watch (Part Of) The Stupid Bowl

Long-time readers of this blog know that Mrs. C and I dislike American football. It's all about gratuitous violence, brain damage, life-long disabilities, and most of all money, as crass as greed can get. (Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?) Back in the U.S., we always go out to dinner for our own private Stupid Bowl party. If the restaurant is open you get the best table and service. But we're in Costa Rica.

I thought it might be fun to go to one of the big beachfront bar-restaurants here to photograph the scene. It was interesting if unsurprising. We had never seen a Super Bowl half time show so we stayed for that. Now I don't know Lady Gaga from Lady Macbeth but it was kind of sort of mildly fun. Then we returned to our condo. The best part was the moon through the palm trees.

The best part was the moon through the palm trees? How I'd go along with that! Give me a walk under the palm trees under the moonshine any day and forget stupid bowl.
Glad you're in Costa Rica. Can I say I'm dead jealous?

Sharon said...

I agree! That moon is the best part.

I could care less about football, so I never watch it. A lot of people seemed to come out for it regardless there.

I don't really care for Lady Gaga's usual stuff, but she did a duet album of jazz standards with Tony Bennett that worked pretty well.

I stopped watching football about 25 years ago so I forgot the superbowl was even being played. I do like baseball and the red sox though. I grew up listening to them on the radio with my dad and grandmother.
Enjoy your holiday Bob!

We can agree to disagree about this.

I'm not a football fan. It bores me.
