Today is the day. The Giants and the Patriots. Or the Patriots and the Giants. Either way, the big game is upon us.
I am not much of a fan of pro football and probably won’t watch the game. Even the celebrated commercials won’t pull me in. I don’t know anyone who is having a party, or at least they didn’t invite me if they are. All of which is fine.
What I find interesting about the Superbowl, however, is the amount of effort that ordinary Americans put into it. The parties, the… well, everything. It’s a cultural spectacle.
It got me thinking about how much time we as fathers put into celebrating our families. When was the last time you had a blowout party for your family? A birthday? New Year’s?
Me neither. At least not like people celebrate the Superbowl. So, what stopping us?
Why not take some time this year to celebrate your family? Have a big party, like the Superbowl. And let us know how it goes.
