Great fun right? Well it helps if your freaking team wins. ha
Despite the Giants (aka i giganti) inability to convert a 3rd down, I had a good time last night.
An expat friend of a friend invited me to watch the game at a pub with him and some of his Italian friends. I haven't had a burger and fries since I've moved here. Delicious.
The crowd was pretty diverse with Italians (there was a Roma game playing in another room but I was surprised how many Italians were into the Giants/Eagles game), American students and expats. Lots of couples. Most of the fans were for the Giants but unfortunately some Eagles fans were also in the house. heh
Not sure what the heck was up with the refs. Horrible calls all night against both teams.
While Donavan McNabb is a fellow Syracuse Alum I cannot root for the Eagles.
I'm rooting for the Steelers to go all the way. Back in the day Franco Harris was the man. He along with Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swann led the Steelers to several Super Bowl Championships in the late 70s.
As I walked home I wondered why didn't I do things like this in L.A? A couple years ago I asked some friends to meet up at pub for the Superbowl. The whole time we talked about the biz, my friends could care less about sports (which was distracting when you're trying to watch the game) and we left at half time. It was a disaster.
Last night we did talk about work for maybe one minute. As in:
"What the hell is Eli doing now? Don't ***king pass!"
The graphic below from the New York Daily News cracked me up. Poor Giants.
