During the last presidential election year, more people watched the Super Bowl than voted. That is a somewhat misleading figure, because some of the people watching the Super Bowl were not eligible to vote. But if I recall correctly, turnout was pretty high (by American Standards) that year as well. So while it may be a comparison that is hard to interpret, it is likely not without meaning.
My daughter and I have an annual tradition of watching the Super Bowl. We do it mainly for the snacks. (But no double dipping allowed!) I’m a Vikings Fan, of course, as an adopted Minnesotan, but this year I can root for both sides because I’m from New York but I’m also an Honorary Bostonian. But who cares about any of that … I promised you some good stuff to do during the game, so here goes.
