The Super Bowl Has Something for Everybody

I recently read a piece entitled, "Make Love Not Guacamole", written by an writer for "Parenting.com" in its "Pop Culture" section.  Visit the link at: http://www.parenting.com/blogs/pop-culture/shawn-parenting/make-love-not-guacamole?src=facebook.  The writer was giving tips to men about how to watch the Super Bowl and have sex, although necessarily at the same time. 
This post is for the ladies who may hate the Super Bowl. 

The Super Bowl is Just an Excuse to Party

Personally, I've never understood how anybody could hate the Super Bowl. It's pageantry at its best. There's some celebrity singing the national anthem. There's usually some fighter jets flying overhead.  There's a huge halftime show that is usually exciting (unless of course you have Madonna or Prince who both seemed more concerned about not getting hurt than they were about rocking the house.) It is also a great excuse to party. 
Indeed, in my single days. I was known to travel to the Super Bowl host city just to be a part of the energy. The most notable trip was to Atlanta, Georgia. And even thought Atlanta usually has mild winters the weekend of the Super Bowl the roads were covered in ice.  And despite the many warnings from the meterologists to stay off of the roads, my sister and our friend and I braved the roads to "kick it".
We had a great time. One party sponsored by HBO was particularly fun.  We got in for free and it was filled with celebrities. And then, there was us--excited to be there and enjoying the free drinks. My sister even danced with Wyclef! (unlike me, she can really move!)

Even if You Hate Football The Super Bowl is Cause to Celebrate 

Anyway, I digress... Even if you're at home, if you allow yourself to enjoy it, the Super Bowl can be really fun! It's exciting to see two teams who each want to win so badly. It's almost like watching gladiators, which is always exciting. My mother, who may know less about football than most, really gets into it. She even jumps and cheers like she's got money riding on the game.
The Super Bowl is also an excuse to eat bad food, drink alcohol and hang out with people your like.  Who doesn't like to do that? 
Besides ladies, the Super Bowl comes only once a year. And if you are one of those people who HATES football with your entire being, the Super Bowl is cause to celebrate. You don't have to worry about your man watching football until next season.  Until then, you can have him all to yourself.
Also, here's a tip, if you are super cool about him enjoying the Super Bowl, you'll have him wrapped around your finger. You'll be able to get him to do some chores, pick up the kids, and you may even get some of that sex that the "Parenting.com" writer mentioned...
