I have,seven brothers; there were a lot of dishes. And there was a mass exodus from the dining room to the living room on Sunday afternoons, so you can see how I might think that. You can also see how, despite growing up with all those brothers, I didn't grow up to be a sports fan myself. It's simple. During games, there was no room for me on the couch. And, being number nine of ten, I was in no position to push anyone else off. I'm not complaining though. When you have that many siblings, you consider a majority of them corralled in one room for extended periods of time a very good thing. A game of any kind on TV meant I could roam freely, as long as it wasn't in front of the television. And my brothers were occupied for a long time on Sunday afternoons. I learned early that seven minutes left in a game could mean 17 or 27. It never meant seven. Giving the time remaining in a football game is like giving your age in dog years. The drawback is I'm clueless about sports, and not just football, though I am pretty good at dishes. Baseball is my favorite of all professional sports, with its long peri- ods of peace interrupted by occasional bursts of hysteria, much like my life. I like watching hocke) but I don't care for the fights. I don't see why skating 35 miles an hour and maneuvering a puck the size of a quarter pounder through all those sticks and legs isn't enough for other fans: I like tennis, but I don't understand why zero is called "love." On those rare occasions when I played tennis, I often had zero, but love was not what I was feeling. I like basketball. I even played it in high school for four years, though I'm no expert at it. I sat on the bench so much that I didn't even need to shower after most games. Football is the most mysterious of all sports to me. I have so many questions, the main one being why football fans say "We won" or "We lost," when all they did was punch the couch cushions and curse the officials a few times. This is all a very long way to explain why, whenever anyone asks me who I'll be rooting for in the Super Bowl I always answer the same way: "Who's playing?" I do, however, know who is NOT playing. Having grown up in Minnesota, my husband is a Vikings fan. Still, I'm sure that come February 2, he and my son will join the over hundred million people expected to watch the Super Bowl. I almost cer- tainly will not, even though I have a dishwasher and there's plenty of room on the couch for me. I may join them for a few minutes though. There are some things I like about Super Bowl Sunday, even if the actua! game isn't one of them. I like the snacks and the commercials aregood. When a business pays four million dollars for a 30- second advertisement, they better be. But what I like best about the Super Bowl is the same thing I liked about football in general whdn I was growing up: me time. I can come and go as I please-- as long as I don't walk in front of the television.
