Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

In a National Hockey League pre-Super Bowl matinee today, the Boston Bruins visited the Montreal Where’s Waldos. As you can surmise from the photo above.

Seriously, I appreciate hockey history, and applaud the Canadiens for celebrating their century of existence. That doesn’t mean they have to don all the long-ago uniform designs the club has sported over the years. Especially not with those red-white-blue striped leggings, which makes them look like school-aged girls or something.

I’m wondering just how many replica jerseys of this 1912-13 “Barber Shop” look the Habs gift shops are selling. Considering that they lost this game 3-1 to the B’s, I’m guessing they aren’t flying off the hangers.

Yup, the 43rd Super Sunday is here. And I’m parked in front of the TV screen, absorbing the ESPN pre-pre-pre-pregame coverage leading up to the 6:28PM kickoff.

While I’ll happily keep the preliminaries going as background noise, I’m not particularly engaged in it. Fact is, it doesn’t feel much different from any other football Sunday. I’m not tabbed to go to any Super Bowl parties, which suits me fine as I’m a bit under the weather anyway. I’m contented to lay low throughout the day until the main event.

Once the game starts, I’ll watch it, but I don’t see getting too much into it. I’m not particularly committed to either team; one’s been here too many times to recount, and the other, frankly, has dumb luck to thank for its berth. I don’t feel any real excitement over their participation, nor in the outcome regardless of which one wins.

Still, I’m watching. What else can you do on America’s most secular of Sunday celebrations?
