I’m not a big football fan. If my son wasn’t in elementary school, I probably would not have realized the Cardinals were in the Super Bowl.
But, my son is 6, and I suppose he should at least know how one of the most followed sports in America is played. So we watched the nail-biter of a game.
Of course, we only moved out here a few months ago. Of course, Seth doesn’t even understand much about how the game is played. (For the record, basketball is easier to explain.) And of course, it’s illogical that Seth would have any emotional attachment to any team considering sports are barely discussed at home.
Still, Seth broke out into tears after the Cardinals lost to the Steelers. He clearly got caught up in the excitement and emotion of it all. I guess it could have been worse: what if Seth really cared about the team?
