Super Bowl Craziness

I have to admit, this is the first time that I have been in a city that has a team going to the Super Bowl since I was 16 years old, and my memory is not as good as I would have liked for that. Over the past week, I have noticed quite a few interesting things going on, and I am just wondering — is this normal?

  • The Governor reschedules a major budget policy address
  • The major local supermarket is now treating Super Bowl Sunday like Christmas Eve — closing down by 6:00pm
  • Good doctors schedule treatment regimes based on the Steelers kick-off time
  • My boss pushing our post-Super Bowl Monday meetings to Tuesday
  • Several co-workers of mine plan to rent a Winnebego from Hagarstown, MD to drive to Detroit. They don’t plan on getting tickets, but they plan on partying in the parking lot.
  • Another couple of acquaintances of mine are looking to sell eggs, kidneys and second born sons to get tickets to the game.
  • The wife of an acquaintance of mine is scheduled to have a C-section at 6:00AM Monday morning. The guy spent roughly five days trying to figure out how he could get back from Detroit by 4:00 AM until he realized it would be futile.
  • I hear a Steelers fight song on the radio at least once per hour.

Now what are some of the other things that you have heard/seen/are doing to prep for the Super Bowl?
