I really hope this is the last year the 49ers are not making the playoffs. I’d love to go into the Super Bowl next year angry about how a call hosed the 49ers in the playoffs, or (here’s a novel idea) watching the 49ers in the championship game.
I’ve gone back and forth on who I’m rooting for and it’s the commercials. Give me a good football game, but it’s a game I’m already knowing I won’t be interested in. I’ll be more interested in the food at the party I go to rather than the game. So I hope I get to laugh hard for some great commercials. Either team winning is going to make me angry, so might as well focus on something else.
Beyond that depression, there’s the other depression: football is coming to an end again. I never can appreciate the joy of games on TV until there are no games at all. So I’m sure as the clock winds down I’ll be savoring every last play until we go into the offseason to prepare for the draft.
