My husband does not watch football. I'm on my own here, although since the Pat's aren't included I'm not that invested. But, damn Denver. What the hell!

I don't. I watch every single game with my husband. Have done so for the past 15 years now.
GO HAWKS!

Wives know it's a big event, usually important to her husband, and she wants to share in it. At least that's the case for Mrs. DRob. She will also watch some prime time Eagles games with me if she is not mad at me for something.

Mrs. DRob checked out at 36-0.

To be fair sports over the last 30 years has seen a huge leap in popularity among women( which surprises as to why women legaues struggle) but as far a superbowl, really it has grown outside of the sport itself and has become more of a social tradion in America. Not just women but people who dont even follow sports will go to superbowl parties just because they dont want to be the person the next day does not know what everyone is talking about.

Now as someone who has been married I can understand your underling point, and it that for someone reason women want to be a part of things that demand so much of their mans attentionI (I think they think it will be a good bonding thing) Men we are not that burden with such concerns

Well, most of the reason I watched the game is because HE wanted me to settle in and watch it with him. Otherwise, I might have done other stuff. I'm not much into football at all, although I did enjoy this game.

But I did get up often during commercials to do other tasks. Of the commercials that I did see, I was not thrilled by them. Of the ones I saw I only liked the one with Bob Dylan. Did enjoy the half-time. I chucked pop music long ago but did like Bruno Mars.

Hey, I know a lot of people who watch football every Sunday and every Sat during the season. As for only on Super Bowl Sunday, it is a special day and an American tradition. it is like "why do people only eat Turkey on Thanksgiving or only wear green on St Patty's day or yes, like only go to church on Christmas and Easter?

Hey, someone has to clean the house, shop, do chores, when someone else is glued to the tv for football season.

I took a break yesterday, so what?

My wife watches football with me all day on Sunday. It starts with the Browns (usually a 1PM kick off) and then we tune into the 4PM game, followed by the Sunday Night and Monday Night games.

My guess: It's the party. Probably more homes have parties on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year. Women might find football boring, but they get partying.
