Nate hosted a Super Bowl Party and we got to use the projector (from Screen on the Green fame) to watch the game on the big screen, or in this case a white wall. Due to the time change, kickoff was around 12:30 pm, which worked out well for us, but we had to block some of the Am. Sam. sun, so up went the dark sheets. I wonder how long Nate will keep them up. Sadly, neither the game nor Prince was that interesting. Also, we didn't get to watch the Superbowl commercial. In Am. Sam. the game was broadcast on the AFN channel - the American Forces Network. A channel for the military, by the military. Instead of playing the million dollar ads, it shows "important" public service announcements about credit card debit, hypothermia and suicide. I think the suicide ad is important, because after watching the same six commercial during each commercial break over a four hour period, I sure was on the edge. It also provides fun facts about the military. Do you know who are the only two individuals selected as General of the Armies? Watch AFN and find out. Regardless, I did get to spend the day in air-conditioning while stuffing my face with food. This included three different kinds of guacamole -including one with cranberry, which is actually really tasty. In addition, Niki made the famous dip and Nate cooked his newly famous chili. good times. Perhaps the Bears will pull it out next year, but at least I have time to practice the Superbowl Shuffle.
