I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Well, none of my neighbor's pets dieted for it and I know I didn't diet for it, so...just kidding. I celebrated the Super Bowl by driving across town to a friend's farm to pick up some free organic compost in which to start my tomato seeds. And I petted her horse and geese. And I sustained an "injury on the field" when a bramble thorn deeply lacerated the pad of my pinkie finger and I bled all over everything. I may need some rehab with a handsome kinesiologist who knows CPR and massage. :wink:

I watched the Superbowl. I'm a football fan and I don't think it's "un-vegan" of me to enjoy watching.

I don't think its "un-vegan" as well, but I'm not really into sports on TV... I find them totally boring.
In the end my daughter took control of the TV during that time and watched Tangled.

I was referring more the comments about how the Super Bowl led to animal deaths. I don't know if the Super Bowl leads to more animals deaths than any other sporting event (e.g., baseball games, hockey games, etc.). And if that's the case are we saying that vegans shouldn't watch any organized sports? Seems kind of extreme to me.

I did not watch the super bowl this year. Not because I don't like football (i love it) but because I didn't care about either team playing.

I am already getting ready for baseball season to start.

I would probably watch the superbowl with other vegans eating vegan food. But I think overwhelmingly people eat wings, chili, nachos, pizza...

We didn't watch it either. Just don't care for football. We went to Sprouts.

Completely ignoring the fact people gorge themselves on animals during the Superbowl. I am against these big box games. Paying someone millions of dollars to play a sport is absurd. Coupled with the ridiculous amounts spent on stadiums, venues etc. You have a gigantic flagrant waste of resources.

Meanwhile, people and animals are starving and dying daily.

Yeah, no thanks. I don't even own a TV anymore.

I agree, but I would argue that's the case with most of pop culture...sports starts, movie starts, musicians, etc. It's crazy how much money they get paid.

I didn't watch because I hate mindless consumerism/commercialism and anything that glorifies it.
I went on a bike ride, which was very pleasant for being in the mid 40's!

I love football and I wish I could watch the superbowl live! Just like FIFA in aftrica since it's a different feeling rather watching it on TV. :wink:
