I mean, what else are you going to be doing tonight?

No, it's not an Orioles game, and in fact it's not even a football game that involves any of the teams in close proximity to where there are large concentrations of Orioles fans, but there is still the Super Bowl being played tonight, and probably most everyone you know will be watching, and likely yourself as well.

But if you get bored of all of those people, here we are. Waiting for Opening Day, mostly. Still, clearing the hurdle of the Super Bowl is like the last big other sport event before the baseball season starts to get moving again. So think of it like paving the way for spring training.

Who are you rooting for? Who do you think will win? Do you have any reasonable or ridiculous gambling interest in this game? Are you actually just watching for Katy Perry's halftime show? It's OK, no one is going to judge you here. Well, maybe just a little bit.
