Limeybowl; The First Quarter

5 02 2012

Superbowl 46…let’s have it…

6:28 p.m. The big kick off. Pats kicker boots it down the field and a Giant catches it and runs back towards a wall of blue.

6:29 p.m. Eli Manning (Giants QB) comes on the pitch and throws the ball to another bloke. Man next to me thinks that this will be a “superb game” and then the Giants get a first down.

6:30 p.m. someone complains about the fact that the Pats can’t stop the first down, worried that this might be a problem late on in the game. Manager of pub (female) checks to make sure that I am alright, tells me that there will be free food at Half Time.

6:32 p.m. Bar groans in unison as the Giants move down the field. Then someone gets nailed on the pitch and everyone cheers.

6:35 p.m. Commercial Break.  This is going to be a long night….

6:38 p.m. Giselle Brady is spotted in the crowd. Apparently this is not a good thing.

6:45 p.m. Missed the first points of the evening as I was talking to Bill McLean – Hunter S Thompson’s biographer. Giants score a field goal.

6:46 p.m. The gentleman next to me nearly bursts my eardrums with a shout of “get him”. Still not too sure what is going on.

6:48 p.m. there is a flag on the play. Giants seem very close to the goal line and they score a touchdown. Bar goes quiet. Three minutes to go in first quarter. Giants are 9 nil up.

Commercial Break. Again.

6:58 p.m. 30 minutes in we approach the end of the first quarter. Bar becoming animated but the Giants are winning. Which is still not a good thing.

Time for a commercial break. The advert starring the Go Daddy girls takes the attention briefly away from the fact that the Pats are losing.

Long way to go though, the game is afoot.
