Super Bowl Sunday Without the Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone. This fact neither fills me with joy nor saddens me to the point of tears. In total and complete contrast with the estimated 109.7 million fans who viewed this year’s Super Bowl XLV, I view SBS as just another Sunday. However, this year was different. While I do not have any vehement objections to the sport of football, 2011 saw my proclivities running a bit askew with the majority of America’s.

Cavemen somehow got involved with New Year's Eve

Well as you already know, I was a bit tardy over the Christmas period when it came to posting on my blog. It wasn't my fault though. Because I spent my holiday 'oop' North, I was deprived of all the creature comforts that you take for granted down South.
