I know almost nothing about sports. When I got invited to a Super bowl party, I had no idea what to expect. Luckily, I invited my friend who knew more about how it works. Basically, blue is good, white is bad. If we get to the other side, everyone will stand up and yell, great.

I cannot focus on anything. I kept getting caught off guard, so when everyone would start yelling at the referee, I would almost fall out of my seat. A few circumstances I did, and it hurt. I genuinely had no idea what was happening the majority of the time.

Honestly, I had more fun watching the commercials than the game. I would kind of zone out or fall asleep until I heard the commercials start. When I was really little, I would specifically ask my parents to call me in the room when the commercials started. Can you blame me though? They are pretty great.

Football is dangerous. According to the latest NFL injury data, a 13.5 percent increase in diagnosed concussions from 2016 to 2017 during the preseason and regular season occured. With how dangerous this game is, why does everyone love it so much?

From a non-football watcher point of view, I could see how people got to the viewers. They would purposely show a play over and over without giving a verdict. The viewers would then get worked up and try coming up with their own conclusion. After they did, everyone that was right would brag and gloat, and if they were wrong, they would get defensive and angry. This would cause strong emotions from both sides and get the viewer more involved in the game. It would also take up more time making the time-limit stretch to fit.

I have to admit they are pretty good at getting into the viewer’s head. The entertaining commercials would make the watcher want to stay so they would spend all their time watching. They even made fantasy football to make fans even more invested in the game. They will play in almost any weather which makes the crowd more interested in how the game will go.

When the last quarter started, I became more interested. Everything was moving faster. The points mattered more. Everyone was on edge. I was impressed with how fast the players could run, and how they could catch and throw so precisely. As the last few seconds ticked away, I couldn’t help but cheer with my friends.

I think football is pretty boring. In my opinion, it’s really repetitive. If you see one, you’ve seen them all, but spending that time with people so invested in the game was delightful. I hope that I will someday learn the rules and like the sport myself. Until then, you guys need to learn to throw stuff less.
