Superbowl sunday

Be forewarned. This may be an incoherent, disjointed post. Basically its a draft.

The super bowl is coming. Will I watch? Probably not. Possibly for the commercials, but they'll be available later. Why you ask? Let me explain.

US professional football is corporate sport of the highest order. Each team has number crunchers. They "predict" exactly what will happen in each situation. X will do this on offense. Y will do this on defense. Its so predictable as to be boring. I usually fall asleep.

Yes there are incidences of individual physical athletic ability which I do admire, but mostly its "by the book" execution.

Baseball is much worse, basketball much better.

For real novelty and unexpected action you have to watch soccer.
