Well, I think we can all agree that Super Bowl XLVIII was a colossal and utter waste of time that fell miles short of the hype surrounding it. I guess that’s what I get for actually watching a football game.
Like I said, I watch a handful of games every year — the Super Bowl always being one — and usually, unless the Patriots are in, I really don’t care who wins. But Sunday was just boring to watch. I doubt most in this area were really rooting for a team (maybe a few Broncos fans and the sudden burst of Seahawks “fans” that seemed to be non-existent in 2011), but at least it could’ve been close.
Oh well, at least Bruno Mars killed it the halftime show.
Anyway, it’s back to basketball. I’m off today and tomorrow, but I’ll be covering games on Wednesday and Thursday. Nancy will be staffing a game tomorrow (I’ll put up a coverage plans post for this week later. I’ll also be posting a updated Section 1 tournament schedule).
UPDATE (11:25 a.m.): Incase you haven’t figured it out by now, almost every school is closed today. When I checked the LoHud list of cancellations and delays, North Rockland (two-hour delay) was the only school still open. Albertus Magnus already has the game listed as postponed. If you hear of any re-scheduled dates, please let me know. I’ll be putting calls out all day, but if you could save me one or two, that would be a big help.
As always, stay safe and stay warm!
