I'm totally a Missouri girl, Geekicheep! (Welcome to NarniaWeb!) I grew up watching the Kansas City teams (the Chiefs and the Royals), as a young teen I started watching the Mizzou Tigers, a few years after that we moved and got FSMW and with it nearly every Cardinals game, and then more recently after that football team departed St. Louis and I decided to start watching the Blues whenever I could. As a kid I went to a college hockey game with my dad and siblings and I did not enjoy it, but when I started watching the Blues a few years ago I found I actually enjoy watching hockey. :D That's the story of SnowAngel the sports fan. :)

Yeah, worst to first teams are such fun to see, love rooting for the underdog. :)

Just a few more week until college football returns. :D

Hey SnowAngel, sorry I didn't see your response, and thanks for the warm welcome! :D

Yes, college football is upon us! I come from a strong FSU family, though personally I don't give a fumble about football. But I absolutely love this time of year, because no matter who your team is, watching the big game brings people together. Even people who are too busy counting down to hockey season (like me :D ) can have a great time with friends and/or family rooting for the home team. So whoever your team may be (sorry I don't know MO football), hope you enjoy it too. :)

I'm pretty sure that title would have to go to my sister Scarlet who has a stack of book she plans to be reading during the game tomorrow. :D

I, on the other hand, am very excited to watch the Chiefs in the Super Bowl tomorrow. B-) There has been a lot of excitement around here the last month, my family with except Scarlet really enjoyed watching the Chiefs in the playoffs this year. Both sides of my extended family are Chiefs fans, so I think it might be in the genes which means Scarlet must have gotten skipped and I got her share. ;) Anyway, GO CHIEFS!!! :-bd

I'll reluctantly cheer for the Chiefs, since it has been 50 years since they made it to the big game, and San Francisco has won it several times in that period (unfortunately, the Chiefs beat our hometown team, the Vikings, in that game).

In any event, I hope it's a good, exciting game. I'll be watching with some friends who've hosted Super Bowl parties over the years; it's always a good time.

I've seen some of the commercials that have already been released online, and I thought several were humorous.

It was a pretty exciting Super Bowl at least from what I saw, didn't really have a rooting interest but was happy to see a close one with Andy Reid finally getting a championship.

My Narnia obsessed daughter wanted to watch the BBC Miniseries on Sunday so I followed the game on my phone while we watched Caspian, Dawn Treader, and Silver Chair. Even though we've seen them numerous times, I found myself a lot more concerned with Jill, Eustace, and Puddleglum's adventure than with the result of a sportsball match. :)

Sunday night was awesome.

I was rooting for the Chiefs because they were the underdogs, and I always root for the underdog. 21-point comeback in the fourth quarter. Saw that a bunch of people on here were Chiefs fans as well, which made it even cooler for me.

Wow, I can't believe I let two whole weeks go by without posting in here...

How about those Chiefs? B-) So crazy that they had to comeback from being down double digits in all three of their playoff games this year, definitely could not count them out of the game at any point. ;)
