In 2012, I confessed that I have a weakness for NFL football playoffs and awards shows. This year, for the first time ever in my life, I truly became a football fan.

I should also be completely transparent about this: I am a somewhat fickle football fan. I have no geographical nor historical allegiance to teams. I’ve selected my favorite teams based on completely subjective criteria like whether or not I think the people involved — especially QBs and coaches — are good people or are entertaining, or at least stand for something I can get behind.
For example, I’m a fan of the Harbaugh brothers because John (Baltimore Ravens) seems like a good person and Jim (San Francisco 49ers) is so entertaining on the sidelines. Ravens? YES! OMG Jacoby Jones! I dislike the Steelers because I have thoughts about Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Tomlin. I’m blown away by Peyton Manning‘s recovery from surgery to be better than ever — and I have completely fallen for the Tom Brady+Bill Belichick show.
So Super Bowl Sunday. YES! A thousand times yes, even though my favorite-favorite team isn’t playing. Peyton Manning tops my list of good guys, so we’ll be cheering for the Broncos. And also food.
