1. Do you make a special menu for Superbowl Sunday?

2. Do you shave your legs less often in the winter?

3. If applicable, do you wear both your engagement ring and your wedding band together?

"I wouldn't actually call it a "holiday". Since the team are "world" champs, I don't think it is limited JUST to America to watch." --------- It wasn't meant very seriously. I am sure there are some people outside the US who watch this, but I certainly have never met any. American football is pretty, well, American.

Gotcha Laughing

Actually it would be nice if they would move it to a Saturday night instead.

No, I usually go somewhere and let others feed me and get me drunk.

2. Do you shave your legs less often in the winter?

Somewhat, but I get lazy in the summer too.

3. If applicable, do you wear both your engagement ring and your wedding band together?

Yes, but they aren't a "set."

"Please don't elevate the SuperBowl to a holiday!" ----- LOL, it was tongue in cheek. We do celebrate Thanksgiving, but not super bowl. Even ex-super-jock dh never played football, other than soccer, I mean.

1.  No

2.  No,  but I do shave my underarms more often in the summer.

3. I had them welded together so they are one ring.  I only wear it now for dress up occasions.  I damaged it last year and lost the diamond and bought a band to replace it.  DH got the other one fixed for our anniversary but I find the band works better for me at work.

An estimated 700mil watched World Cup Soccer final in 2010. In 2013, 108 mil in the US watched the SB(98% of the viewers were in the US). It's hardly a worldwide attraction.

It's cute when Americans talk about how the Super Bowl involves "world" champion teams; like the rest of the world was included.

I was simply pointing out that not just Americans watch the Superbowl.
