I enjoy watching football. It's a pleasant way to pass the time. I like to root for a team (usually the underdog) and have been known to groan out loud or even yell at the players on occasion. But this is nothing. I know there are some serious football fans out there. Fans that would do anything for their team and never miss watching a game. And I get that. I have a serious thing for cream cheese. Fill a brownie with it and there isn't much I wouldn't do to make it mine.
So I understand, football fanatics, that you would want to go see your team play at the ultimate of all games. But standing out in the parking lot? Really? Does it even count as going to the Superbowl if you can't see the field? And actually paying good money, a lot of good money, to stand out in the freezing cold parking lot? Seriously?
Just in case this occurred because you had nothing better to spend your money on, I offer you my top five ways on how to better spend two hundred dollars.
5. Pretty much on anything else. Especially if it is something you can eat, wear, or actually hold in your hands.
But if you don't want something for your money....how about:
4. Give it to me.
Or if you don't want to give away your money for absolutely nothing...
3. You can watch the Superbowl at my house. I will turn off the heater if it is the "atmosphere" you're craving. I'll put on a cheese hat and yell really loud, too. I'll even stand in front of you so you have a hard time seeing the television.
Totally non-football related...
2. You could buy about fifteen books. (There are even some books that have people playing football in them.)
1. You could buy about ten snuggies. Or ten perfect brownie pans (if you do buy 10, please consider giving one to me). Or five snuggies and five perfect brownie pans. Heck, just have a home shopping network buying spree.
See, look at all these amazing options. So next time you're tempted to buy some standing space in a parking lot to watch television, give me a call and I'll talk you out of it.
What would you buy with $200?
