The Big Game is going to be here before you know it. Mr. Flavor Mosaic has already been telling me about the football schedule and all the what-ifs if this team wins then they play that team. He takes his football very seriously.
For me since our team is out of the playoffs, I mostly enjoy watching the Big Game at our homegating party by visiting with our friends, enjoying good food, and watching the new TV commercials.
