This Sunday will be the last football game we as Americans will enjoy until Autumn. The Super Bowl, the biggest and most important game of the year. It's something every football fan looks forward to every year. But, now that it's upon us I can't help feeling a little disappointed.
So what do you do? Have one last hoorah, enjoy one more night together before it all ends. This relationship between football and its fans is kind of the same right now. This Super Bowl is the one final bang where we can enjoy the violently beautiful game it is.
What will we do for an entire summer without it? Anyone who is a true football fan won't stop going through withdrawals until mid March. Where hopefully postseason hockey and basketball can ease the pain of this loss.
So at the end of the day, enjoy this week. Enjoy every down played and every ball spiked in celebration. Even take in and remember the commercials that will air for the first time. For this is the last time football will be in our lives for a little while.
