Hyper Bowl Sunday

Today is Super Bowl Sunday in the States. I like to call it Hyper Bowl Sunday because American professional football is so hyped!

The Players will have chosen a team that can pay them the most money, and the teams play each other to make a profit for the owners. Yeah... I really care...

Added to the overt capitalism, the football players wear ridiculous uniforms: Helmets, shoulder pads, and long pants! They look silly to me.

The game stops after every "play". So much of the time you're watching the players getting into position. Then off they go again for a few seconds of play. No wonder some people watch the game to see the advertisements.
