Superbowl Valentines Special

Raoul’s Two Cents: February 11, 2022

Love and Football

When I picked up my mail today, I noticed a young lady sporting a fresh hairstyle and a hint of makeup. Hovering around her was a neatly dressed gentleman about the same age. Both obviously dumped their school clothes for this occasion. They were in their early teens and this was probably their very first encounter after school. Twitterpated molecules of testosterone went flying. The bait and the chase was on. With Valentines just a few days away, love is definitely in the air.

But it’s not fair! Did you realize that women have 2 birthdays a year … and one of them is Valentine’s Day? And for the married Mrs., they have a third birthday.

What about us men? Don’t we deserve a rose too? Why do we guys have to always (not only remember these special occasions but also) come up with a surprise to prove our undying love? Where’s the equality? Where’s the justice?

Actually, if my wife gave me a rose, I wouldn’t know what to do with it … I’d probably eat it. I mean, what’s this fascination with a flower? You put it in vase. You show it off. You smell it; and then what? Wait for it to wilt? I’ll take a cold bottle of beer instead of watching a plant die in slow motion.

Well, this is an unusual year. This is the year, just before V-day, you women can prove your love because Sunday is macho day! It’s the Superbowl! I propose that women demonstrate their eternal devotion to their men every Superbowl day by preparing the cold beer and the reprehensible junk food that go with it! Learn the rules! Ask questions as if you’re really interested and pretend to enjoy the game. For one time in the year, spoil your man. Let them be sloppy, let them scream and yell and bring out the gorilla inside them. Let’s make it official! Sounds like a plan? Good!

Some of you men are already spoiled rotten every Superbowl day. You lucky bastards! Invite me to your home now! Just kidding! I’m not really into football. I’m not a gorilla. I don’t even know all the rules. But I do love to watch the reaction of people who are so into it. Basketball is my game.

Anyway, Tom of Pasadena sent this video of best-animal-friends (see below) and I rehashed it with new music and a poem. (Be sure to turn on the closed caption so you can read the poem.) I transformed it into a Valentines Video which I dedicate to my wife. Men, I’m doing you a favor — you can pass this video off to your own wives. Send this video along with your roses and shock her with your sensitive side. And you women … I guess you can share this video too. 😉

TGIF people! Enjoy the Superbowl and get in the mood for l’amour, l’amour. 😀

    Hey Raoul! You’re a good writer! You should write a book!

    And yes I plan to pamper my husband this Sunday for the Super Bowl. He deserves it!

    Raoul–I enjoy watching football and so does Jan, even though we really don’t follow it. When we watch-sometimes–she will put a spread on the table, covers the whole table of wings, chips, dips, sliders, fruit, deep fried this and that. I say to her: “we won’t eat all that.” I don’t even try half of it. I focus on my favorites.

    I hadn’t thought of it as ‘lucky’ but as my wife is trying to make the ‘event’ fun and special for the family, which was her and me. We could have invited about 10 friends with what she had out there…but neither one of us felt like vacuuming.

    LOVED IT! Really clever! I shared if with my daughters and spouses. They had to explain the Buzz/Woody cartoon, which was quite funny. BTW, in view of your attitude toward football, I’m surprised that you understood the joke.

    Enjoyed the animal video. You said you added the music. Is that your guitar playing?

    Do you know what good clean fun is? No, what good is it?
