Ladies, is the Super Bowl for the birds?
Super Bowl XLVII is a tough act to follow.
Men get passionate about “their team,” get glued to the television screen, and feel a need to jeer and cheer- loudly.
Some of us- want to skip the entire ‘Go Daddy’ hullabaloo, the supposed must-see commercials and the faux-wardrobe malfunctions. Take it from me: this is the one event where you may fail miserably as you try to make a pass at your beau. You can whisper promises of a romantic’ touchdown’ or “hang time” however, as long as he has his 3R’s: Recliner, Refrigerator, Remote Control and the Super Bowl, include him out.
You are merely an interference and an “encroachment.”
Make a pass at him? Fegidabout it
Girls, let’s say you’ve tried to make a pass, you scramble for his affection. Darn, false start. You’ve given him a flirty two-minute warning, and no response. You’ve probably felt rejected, dejected and down-and-out. You’ve even gone so far as to make a provocative second very forward pass. Va-va-voom or doom?
Men and Football – his fantasy – not yours?
The best advice? Sweetie, the fact is you don’t have the home- field advantage. You can easily and quickly learn to enjoy the game or enjoy some hang time with other football widows. Get your backfield in motion, say a Hail Mary and roll out and go shopping for yardage, Feeling creative? Get in the spirit of things and put on a sexy red shirt.
That’s code: for pursue your own fantasy and play your own game.
Go see Zero Dark Thirty or Hugh Jackman in Les Mis; Super Bowl Sunday might be the perfect day for you to start that blog or take a North Beach walking tour with City Guides.
Live it up and organize other kindred spirits and hire the lofty, black and white, San Francisco Seaplane for a magical ride above the City and the Bay. Go for a jog, a hike, grab the kayak, take the dog to the dog park and have fun.
(Sure, and we know you miss the likes of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, John Brodie, and Roger Craig…)
Sweet, so would I,
Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow. Romeo and Juliet
Remember: he will be yours after the game.
