Ron was a real Bears fan. And it made life so much easier if I outwardly cheered for the same teams he did. Inside I kind of liked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (because of their name - but I didn't tell either him of the boys. That's such a girl reason to like a team).
So I've really been watching how they (the Bears - not the Buccaneers - they were pretty bad) did this year. And I can imagine how pleased Ron would have been that they made it to the Superbowl. The first playoff game they played was a bit emotional to watch, but I really enjoyed it. And I liked the second one too. So I'm planning on watching the Superbowl (and being pissed off as hell that we don't get all the commercials here - damn Global anyway!)
But it's just not the same watching the game by myself. So when Brent was over the other day I asked him what he was doing for Superbowl Sunday and he said he was planning on having some friends over. I asked him if I could come too. Imagine my astonishment when he looked at me rather oddly and said "Ah, no." I don't know why he wouldn't want to hang with his mamma for the game.
Ryan was over later, after Brent left and I asked him what he was doing - if he was going to watch it. He said he was going to a friends house. I asked him if I could go with him. Again, I was astonished when he gave me a strange look and said "Ah, no." And again, I don't know why he wouldn't want to bring his mother with him to watch the Superbowl game with his buddies. I know football. I wouldn't ask foolish questions. I'm fun. I drink beer. And to think - I let him come over on Sunday all season and watch it at the house because he didn't get cable.
I was telling some of the people at work the other day. They all thought it was funny. One girl said she would try and find a party for me to go to, but I think she was pulling my leg. Although it would be fun to ask her tomorrow in a most seriousness way if she found one for me.
