The Super Bowl is about American as it gets. It’s most well-known for its mass amount of adverts, the pizza parties that are thrown for it and, well the football. People from around the globe travel to the States to join in with one of the largest sporting events, and it’s a great experience for even the non-sports fans. But with the British spirit in mind we thought we’d just do a bit of moaning instead. Here are 7 things people who are not into sports can relate to, when on holiday…
1. Going for a relaxing drink, then finding out that the bar has Sky Sports.
I should have twigged when I saw the three LCD TVs.
2. Seeing sports shirted people as a different clan (or species).
“You say Redskins, I say tanned skin. You say Seahawks, I say sea walks.”
3. Seeing beach sports and questioning why they’d take up prime sunbathing spots.
Surely they must know they can’t get an even tan playing beach volleyball.
4. Having to hear the football chants and dying a bit inside.
To be honest I could probably deal with it if it wasn’t for the fact they take up the entire street when they’re grouped like that.
5. Striking up a really good friendship with some fellow holidaymakers, only to realise a group trip to the local sights is probably out of the question.
Oh, you’re just here for the match are you?
6. Having to time your journey home on the city metro to avoid the end of a match.
So the 10:07 will mean I get a seat, the 10:17 will mean I might get a square foot by the door.
7. Picking up a sports shirt as a souvenir (not a statement) and paying the price.
Why am I getting all these weird looks from these sports fa… Ohh they think I’m the enemy.
