Top 5 Plays For A Superb Bowl Sunday

Superb doesn't look like a real word. Just look at it. Really look at it. Superb. To be honest, I don't know why I didn't just capitalize SUPER in the title instead. It's right there. If only there was some way to fix it. Oh well.

Here are 5 ways to have a happy good fun time watching the SUPER(b) Bowl this Sunday.

Bet That
I don't really care if the Seahawks win. I don't really care if the Broncos win. But one of them has to. Because that's how sports work. I would know. I'm a man. Like a really good one too.

So how do you make the game interesting? Bet your friend some money. Or bet your "friend" some money. "Friend" in the second case is a bookie. If you don't have the money to bet, throw some personal belongings down. The game will be hard to ignore when your first-edition mint Charizard card is on the line.

Road Trip Games

Over the recent holiday break, my girlfriend and I set out on a road trip from Nashville to Kansas City to visit her family. The 9 hour drive took us through 5 states - Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas - and a 40 degree drop in temperature.

While 9 hours isn't that long, it's long enough to need a good copilot. Lucky for me, mine happened to be the same girl who is my copilot in life, navigating the roads of love, straight to the destination of my heart my girlfriend.

Unfortunately, she was asleep for 75% of the drive.

Had she been awake, our games might have gone a little like this...

Me:  I spy with my little eye...a terrible driver next to me.
My gf:  I spy with my little eye...four wrappers from fast food hamburgers you just devoured.
Me:  I spy with my little eye...a road. This game is horrible.
My gf:  I spy with my little eye...someone in the doghouse.

My First Ballet

My girlfriend always says, "Sometimes in a relationship, you do things the other person wants to do that you might not want to because that's love. Like making me go see Danny Brown. Or when you'll eventually take me to the ballet." Then I laugh and cry and laugh and cry again. Love.

So for Christmas, I bought her tickets to the Nutcracker because I am a good boyfriend. The best, really. Very great. Super.

I had my obvious testosterone-fueled reservations at first. But I have to say, the ballet was really impressive. The live music was fantastic. The set designs were terrific. It's a shame that I had THIS stuck in my head the entire time.

Being my first time to see the Nutcracker, I had some trouble wrapping my head around some of the plot. It was the Nashville version so maybe the traditional story makes more sense. I wish there was an unlimited database of knowledge at my fingertips that would offer me some way to find out. I guess we'll never know.

Resolution time!

For reasons I can't seem to uncover, most people need a calendar reset to become a better person.

Why not just start today? (This sounds familiar.)

Good question. But if I'm anything, I'm a conformist, so here are my resolutions for 2014.

Write more. 
I've been neglecting this blog and the 100 people10 people my parents who read it. I'm sorry. So let me make it up to you starting with this post. And the posts I promise to work on in the New Year. Because I needed to wait until January 1st to write more according to Baby Santa Jesus.

Watch Less TV

Lose weight. 
It's time to shed that extra 5 pounds I've been carrying around...below the waist if you know what I'm sayin'...
*high fives*
*whispers* ...from my thighs :(

Keep in touch with friends.
Since college, I've lost touch with a lot of people. Maybe it's laziness. Maybe it's my current deep dive into "hermitdom". Maybe it's just my misunderstandin…
