Superbowl

Living in Japan causes you to miss out on some things that I used to always take for granted in the states. One of those things is the Superbowl. Well football in general. I purchased an NFL Gamepass via Yahoo!, and watched many regular season games (mostly while at work!). But they make you pay extra to watch the playoffs, and even then the superbowl is not broadcast live.

This year, the Superbowl started at 8:30am on a Monday morning. Needless to say, I didn’t get to watch it. Tonight at 2am, they have the repeat of it… in Japanese, with commercials cut. So the entire game is 2 hours, including the Japanese commercials. So I am downloading it on Bittorrent.

I just have to be careful to not see any news. I made a purpose to limit my internet activities today. And I still haven’t looked at facebook yet, afraid of seeing who won. Well, the download should be done by the morning, so I can watch the game by tomorrow night.

So if you don’t wonder why I am corresponding with anyone, now you know why!
