Question Who's NOT Watching the Super Bowl?

Since getting my cable disconnected and going to Netflix, I don't even think I could watch the game if I wanted to. Am I the only person who isn't interested in the big game?

I'm currently watching some cartoon the 2 year old was watching and listening to him snore on the couch....

Since the commercials have been seriously disappointing (except that "Sonic's first" car one, that was nice, as was the London 2012 ad), I've decided to just skip this year.

Besides, we left the party we were at where everyone was watching, so I lost all incentive to even pretend to give a damn.

Although I do want the Patriots to win, just to irritate my friends/family.

Not watching it. DVR'ed it so I could fast forward to commercials (so odd to say) and catch the Avengers trailer, which I just watched.

The Avengers trailer wasn't bad, but damn Captain America looks like a joke.

I have not seen a Superbowl since before Janet's nipple slip. I actually remember being at a WWE House Show that stated the Event before the Big Game and I though what is going on at the University of IL. Later I found out that the Bears where playing the Colts.

Nope but TDKR, and the Amazing Spiderman aren't getting ads in the Superbowl (remember this is WB were talking about, they have horrible marketing).

Also I won't be watching the Superbowl (other than to check out a few ads).

At least she isn't sporting those gold cone tits anymore. They were threatening to destabilize nuclear non-proliferation the world over.

Well, it is streaming online, so you could. Also, you don't have to pay for the over-the air stuff (NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.)

I hate sports in general, but there must be a lot of people not playing because I just got off playing COD:BO for an hour and half and there was no lag waiting for lobbies to fill.

Debating between watching Plan 9 for the umpteenth time or starting my Ultraman DVD.

As a Seattleite, I could really have cared whether Boston or New York won it. Been telling everyone all week the game should've been cancelled for lack of interest. But it came down to the last play, and it had its moments...though not many. Those of you who skipped it had the better idea.

We watched our dvd of National Velvet that I got for my wife the other day, I had my wife look up the game time and planned my trip to the grocery store accordingly (to avoid the chips and beer crowd), did some chores, watched some Brit Coms, and yet still managed to see the new Avengers trailer on YouTube...Mission Accomplished!

Personal opinion: I'm pretty sure we have evolved as a species from Neanderthals to current homo sapiens, so I never saw the logic in watching and enjoying a throwback to evolution.

I watched HP: The Half Blood Prince and put an addition on to my lego Hogwarts castle.
