Kids, I am not a sporty person. I just don't have much of the competitive drive. So I don't really care who wins or loses, and therefore I find I can't root for somebody in sports. I don't know what it is, but it's just not there for me.
Now having said that, I did watch the football game this week. My ever patient boyfriend sat next to me and attempted to explain things here and there. He did his best to answer my questions ("Is that a camera robot? Why did that one guy throw a yellow thing? Why do they keep losing their helmets?"). So here's what I've gleaned from the four or so hours of time I spent watching it with him.
