Football's Almost Over: 2012 Edition

If you're one of those folks who were hoping to spend the afternoon watching grown men pushing each other around in the mud, you're probably going to have to wait until next week:

On the plus side, I only had to scroll down to the second page at the NFL's official site to find that information. Last year when I looked, it was nowhere to be found.

So, next weekend, then. Over at, this week's Dash of Dan has what Dan describes as the perfect Super Bowl recipe, so you have a week to get ready. I'd recommend adding a half cup of chocolate chips to the brownies, by the way.

Heck, you can probably bake them during the opening ceremonies.

Meanwhile, about the game. Haven't we done this before? Yes, during the lifetime of this blog, in fact. In addition, at least one of these two teams seems to have been in this game quite often in the last decade. Technically, though, this year they aren't likely to be pushing each other around in the mud, since they're playing in an indoor stadium, which was named after the oil company that contributed about 1/6 of the cost of its construction. Not that you can tell by the name of the stadium, but they're playing in Indianapolis this year.

We've just about covered all the reasons I'm not much of a fan of the game anymore.

I'll probably tune in anyway, assuming I can get the brownies ready by then.

Cook the brownies, forget the game. Not even the half-time show is worth bother any more. The whole affair is bloated, pointless, and over-hyped.

That would probably be the better choice. It's certainly not a priority to see the game, but I suspect I'll be watching at least some of it anyway.
