is the nfl in the cloud?
One of the things I love about Ali (I bet you never thought I’d write that, did you?) is that he isn’t into sports.
This means that except for the occasional tennis game or ESPN ping-pong tournament (yes really) I am not often subject to the obnoxious noise of screaming fans and fumbling commentators. Until this past Sunday, that is.
Yes friends, this past Super Bowl Sunday, my husband decided to become a sports fan. He turned on his beloved subwoofer, grabbed every remote he could find, and settled himself in the middle of the couch from approximately 1pm to 7:30 pm. PST.
I was beside myself with confusion.
A number of possibilities flooded my mind: Was Ali trying to figure out how to market cloud computing to the NFL? Was he trying to learn more about football to impress a girl? Or was it possible that after 35 years my husband had suddenly become a football fan overnight?
I decided to test the waters during half-time.
Me: “Madonna must be freezing. Is this game at an indoor or outdoor arena?”
Ali: “Um. I think it’s indoor?”
Ali’s uncertainty only reinforced my hypothesis that while he was physically in front of the TV, he wasn’t watching the game. So why on earth was he wasting hours of his life on the sofa, staring blankly at the TV, with Maya’s feet on his head?
It’s been 36 hours and I’ve still got nothing.
