fat sunday

Today the masses collect in one another's homes to worship, huzzah and bow down to the Holy Pigskin that is National Football in the USA. They have been stretching their credit limits to the max and substantially boosting the National Economy in order to purchase food & party favors for their worship services and Wide Screen HiDef Digital Plasma HDTV's on which to view the Great Event. Inordinate amounts of cash have been illicitly changing hands in $5 or $10 increments as Football Squares are filled with initials, aliases and dreams that will most likely be unfulfilled. His majesty, the artist formerly and currently known as Prince will serve as royal entertainer. Spectacular advertisements are being readied for broadcast and Pepsi has created a silver jewel-encrusted can in an effort to best Coke's sales. Excited conversation wafts through hallways, break rooms and cubicles as fans joust with their team's strengths and weaknesses.

My friend at work wryly observed one such conversation: "If people would discuss the things that really matter with half as much passion, maybe they could get some real changes done."
(when was the last time you were invited to an election-watching party?)

My reply: "how 'bout that Obama?!"
