This Sunday at 3:30 pm, most of the city will be staring at big screens in bars and friends' living rooms, beers in hand and nachos within reach. Since our beloved San Francisco 49ers fumbled, though, many others in San Francisco no longer care about the Super Bowl. C'mon, New York Giants and the New England Patriots?! How East-Coast-colonial can you get?
For these folks--who might watch only for the ads and Madonna at half-time--there's Super Bowl XLVI - Men In Tights.
Watching the game on a movie screen, a panel of certified serious football experts (aka The Sports Sweater Commentators) will toss out spontaneous snarky comments about the men in tights heaving, hurling and crashing on the field. The only part of the broadcast that they won't touch is the ads (and maybe Madonna). The experts (with their job titles) are: David Cairns, regular yuck-a-luck; OJ Patterson, distinguished sportsman; David Gborie, semi-professional man-about-town; Andrew Holmgren, closet-jock; EDW-Lynch, gentleman of leisure; and Connor Holmes, worthless nobody.
The screening is free, but donations are appreciated and benefit SF IndieFest and the Roxie Theater.
