The Superbowl: Pure Excitement
Super Bowl Shuffle - video powered by Metacafe
I initially saw this video while at the Red Lion with one of my many internet stalkers. If I recall correctly, they played it several times -- or it might just be that it's interminable. In any case, it is the single most awkward thing ever caught on camera. Afterward, the bartender turned it to the State of the Union, so that was a night of compelling television.
I'm not one of those nerds who is snobbish toward sports fans. I understand that not liking sports represents a lack -- obviously I'm able to become angry about things that "don't matter," and it would be nice to be able to become excited as well. It's just that I really don't understand. Sporting events always just seem like a series of random events to me. I can tell when someone does something really impressive, but strategy, etc., is completely lost on me.
I wish the Bears the best of luck.
(I originally saw that this was online via an Unfogged post I can't find now.)
