I'm a spousal caregiver, and watching something that I know a lot of other people are watching helps me feel somewhat 'normal', at least for a few hours (however, how 'normal' is it to share a living room space w/ a person whose wheelchair is parked 3 feet away from the TV screen??).

Plus DH & I both like sports (although I've never understood football very well. I only watch the Super bowl or games our college team is playing in). And the commercials. And the halftime show/ entertainment!!

I watch because its a timer. Kids go to parties at 5 then have to be picked up after the game. I flip back to it to know when its in the 4th so I can leave to pick them up.

I like to game. I like the commercials. I like the parties. I especially wanted to watch to see if Pitts would beat Green Bay. Being a Bears fan, we have a lifelong revivalry with Green Bay and it broke my heart when they beat us and took our spot in the Super Bowl. But as it stands, they won. They are the better team. Now we need to get rid of Lovey Smith just as he cost us the Super Bowl spot against the Indianapolis Colts. emoticon

I watch it for the halftime show and commercials. But, only if the singers are any good or one of my favorites. On a few occasions I have recorded the whole thing just for the commercials and the halftime show. But, now you can see it all on the internet..so usually don't bother with the TV, just the internet later. I have never cared about football.

I'm not a huge football fan and neither is my partner. But we are going to 4 parties, but the funny part is, neither of us really want too - we are just going to make brief appearances and be home before half-time. He already said once we get home we should watch a movie! I like the commercials, but even those I can watch online. So, I guess for us its more of a social event - the last few years we just stayed at home, which is what we both really prefer.

My family is big on football. I have been a Steeler Fan since 16 when I first started watching football with a family I used to babysit for. This years game should be really interesting. Another bonus is the food is always better during a game. My sons are upset that there will be no cheerleaders for them to watch.

I will watch because I bleed black and gold! I am amazed at what those guys can do, and they are always fun no matter how they play. My longtime favorite is James Harrison, and the other defensive players. I am in it for the long run, so I also cheer for the rookies -- Saunders and Brown, Redman, and Wallace (2nd year guys).
The Packers aren't bad either. It will be a really good game. emoticon

If I was able to attend a Superbowl party tomorrow it would be for the food, 1/2 time show and to see the commercials.
I'm clueless when it comes to the game of football- never have actually understood it, but hey it's a good excuse for a party!

Watch because my son and husband like sports. It's a "bonus" that a team I care about is playing (Steelers)! Also LOVE the commercials and seeing what we think about all of them...

I enjoy the games. I especially enjoy the Steelers. I was born in Pittsburgh, and my SO lived there for 20 years. So we have both been Steelers fans for most of our lives. When it is not the Steelers in the Super Bowl, I enjoy watching without rooting for a team, and I really enjoy the commercials. Some years we are invited to Super Bowl parties, and I enjoy them too.

I have been a Steelers fan since birth. It is in my DNA the fact that they were on a streak during my formative years is just a bonus. Went to college in Green Bay and it was all but impossible to not fall in love with that team. So if the Steelers or Green Bay are not playing, I watch for the commercials. If my teams are playing then I watch the game for cheering potential. And this year, well I can't miss it.

I actually enjoy watching football so for me it's the game. Of course, I enjoy the commercials, too, but it is mainly the competition. When my husband was alive we would have Super Bowl parties, but now it's usually just me cheering on my favorite team and hoping for a great game!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

If you plan to watch the Super Bowl American Football game on Sunday, WHY do you watch? Do you watch because you like Football? Because you are a fan of one of the teams? Because you like Parties? Because your Spouse watches? Or do you watch the Super Bowl because you like the FOOD? or the COMMERCIALS?

Why do you WATCH the Super Bowl?
