I'm not afraid to say it. I hate sports. On the other hand, I love high tech. Today will be all about sports. It's not so much that I hate sports as much as I hate the sound of sports. I don't mind guys running around a field in tight pants that show off their assets. It's the volume of the excitement I find objectionable. Not to mention, I was never that girl in high school who hung around jocks. I was with the guys out back of the coffeehouse passing the bong.
Once as a teenager I attended a football game in the fall. Froze my tushie. Sat way up in the nose bleed section and let's just say I didn't feel the love. Not my thing.
We'll have the Super Bowl on TV at my house because I love my husband. He doesn't ordinarily watch sports, which is one of the reasons I married him. I might, however, watch the half-time performance of whoever is playing. See, I don't even know who that is. Isn't that pathetic? I can only hope to catch a wardrobe malfunction. That would be fun to watch. Like, what if some guy's pants fell off?
The other thing people love to watch is the commercials, and I don't understand that. I see where sponsors were allowed to pick the quarters to buy. I figure the sponsors who chose the last quarter did so because their product appeals to people who are drunk. My husband says if the game goes is not exciting, nobody will watch the 4th quarter so those rates might be really cheap. I guess once you know who is going to win, guys can turn their attention to decking the guy next to them or hugging the toilet.
Whatever happens on TV, I can be relatively assured that my phone is unlikely to ring today. Which is too bad because I bought a brand new battery I'd like to try out. When I gave up my Blackberry of 8 years and bought my cell a few months ago, I discovered these smartphones run out of battery juice faster than my BlackBerry. Even though I turn off WiFi and set my screen to go dark after 15 seconds, I talk too much apparently.
Every day around 4 PM, my battery about dies. I can deal with my Bluetooth going out because I have 4 of those. I simply exchange out my Jawbone. But I'm not always near my charger for my phone. As a Sacramento short sale agent, you can imagine that I'm on the phone a lot. It's my lifeline to my clients and the short sale banks. If I'm not talking, I'm texting or emailing on my phone.
What I didn't know is they make an extended life battery. I bought a 3500MAH battery. It's supposed to double the life of my battery. It even arrived with its own back cover for my cell. My phone is a teensy bit thicker now. But who cares? The downside is I can't find a body glove or case for this size Samsung Galaxy. I care about that a lot more than who wins the Super Bowl. If I drop my phone and it shatters, I'm out of business. The Super Bowl winner outcome? Not so much.
