pick a team!

I am by no means a 'football fan', but when Superbowl comes around, I have to admit that I get a little excited. I just think it's a great excuse to get together with friends, eat a bunch of crap (guilt-free) and watch some football. I mean, I don't even really understand what I'm watching!

I don't usually even care who wins (except for 2 years ago when the Seahawks made it). This year, however, was different.

Jason's best friend is HUGE Giants fan...and since he had invited over for the game (and gave us Giants jerseys to wear) we decided to root for them. I gotta say, rooting for a team and having them win is a great feeling!

It got me thinking about how I am completey undecided on the current presidential race. I don't consider myself a Republican or Democrat...I agree with some conservative views and some liberal views. I definitely think the upcoming change in the White House will be a good thing, I'm just not sure who the best candidate is to create that change.

I LOVE presidential election season...ever since I was in college and was taking a political communication class during the Bush/Gore election. Even then I was really wishy washy up until the end, but for some reason, this year it's really bothering me!

I think the fact that we have a woman and a African-American man running for president is so groundbreaking...and I really wish that I could get behind one of them now and root for them until the end, but I'm just not sure yet.

I have quite a few friends who have already chosen Obama and are 100% decided on him and I envy them. I know, I'm weird.

I just want to put on one of the candidates jerseys and root for them until election day!

I'm with you, I just wish that there were actually some *good* candidates out there on either side. I can't get totally on-board with any of them ideologically (please, stop taxing me so that you can force me to spend my money on projects that are "for my own good" but that I neither need nor want)... UGH.

I'm just going to cross my fingers and pick the one left who I agree with on most of the issues.
