I have a terrible confession to make – I’m not a football fan.
I don’t watch the games. I don’t know the rules.
I DO like the food that’s associated with watching football, though. Like Thanksgiving and nachos. Mmmmm.
Apparently, our home team is going to the Super Bowl.
The funny thing is that this makes me really, really happy.
For someone who isn’t a football fan, why would this be?
It’s because of what it’s doing to our city.
There’s a vibe and an energy from everyone. Excitement fills the hallways at work. Cheers fill my Facebook news feed. Team flags fly from houses, cars and even the Space Needle.
The city is united.
In a town known for its chilly politeness, this is a big deal.
And, I love it.
