In case you are new to Not Pretending (this blog), I am a mega faithful 49er fan.
That being the case, I have a dilemma this year. I HATE the Seahawks AND the Broncos. Since both are playing in this Sunday’s Super Bowl, who the Hell am I supposed to cheer against ? Seattle is in the NFC, so should I want them to be victorious over Denver and the (too) much worshiped Peyton Manning? Should I cheer against the 49ers nemesis? The team that believes their 12th man is better than any other in the NFL? Don’t get me started… If I could root against both teams I would.
Am I crazy to be wrestling with this decision? I am decision-making challenged to begin with. And I abhor having to pick sides. I second guess every decision I make, not trusting myself. I blame my parents for this because they pointed out flaws with every decision or plan I ever made. But let’s not get into that now.
Who are the 49er’s rooting against? That is the question. I browsed the 49er’s and the NFL’s websites for clues. Just when I had almost given up – Colin spoke to me. Well, sort of.
I found an article about an interview with Colin Kaepernick on the NFL website. Colin (the magnificent) gave me the answer I was searching for. The following is an excerpt taken from the article:
In an exclusive interview with The Post, Kaepernick unloaded on Sherman for the Seattle All-Pro corner-backs comments during his infamous TV interview after the NFC Championship Game two weeks ago and for taunting Kaepernick with a choke sign at the end of that contest.
Kaepernick said he looks forward to meeting Sherman and the Seahawks at least twice next season — and vowed that he will never fear Sherman, no matter how badly the throw to Crabtree turned out.
“I’ll take that match-up every day,” Kaepernick said. “I feel like he’s afraid of our receivers, and that’s something I look forward to [exploiting] next year.”
Oh, and because of whom Denver is facing, Kaepernick said he’s a big Broncos fan this week.
“Go Peyton!” Kaepernick said.
OK. I suppose I can suck it up and be on Peyton’s side. But just this one time. And only because Colin is. 😉

Evidently Colin is not so magnificent, he’s not going to the SB! I’m a faithful Manning fan, so it’s go Peyton! Loved the SB puppy/horse commercial, too sweet, best part of the game are the ads!
in this case, I suggest you watch the Puppy Bowl. http://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/puppy-bowl
How cute! I’m going to record that 😉
