There seems to be some sort of big football game coming up this weekend that involves Roman numerals and is supposedly a huge deal.
There are some great story lines to go along with this Super Bowl. The Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other. The Colin Kaepernick thing. Ray Lewis' last game. Randy Moss looking for his first ring.
That's all great. But for some reason this game does not intrigue us.
Will we watch? Of course. It is the Super Bowl, for crying out loud.
Super Bowl Sunday has become an unoffical national holiday. Second biggest day of avocado/guacamole consumption and all.
But the game itself? Not excited. That can all change once the ball is kicked off and it turns into a nail biter. Then we're all in.
But as for the all the hype and buildup? We can leave it.
The game? Oh, yeah. There's that. The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.
We would normally be pulling for the underdog and/or upstarts, in this case the 'Niners. But being Dallas Cowboy fans (yeah, it's brutal right now), we just can't root for San Fran.
Baltimore? Nothing about them is likable to us.
So, without any kind of rooting interest, we go to our fallback and just root for a good game.
