The Last Superbowl

When you watch the Superbowl from the United Kingdom, you are in the minority. Most people are asleep Sunday night by the time the broadcast begins, and so it is a dedicated minority that are drinking beer into the early hours of the morning. This year was perhaps the last time I will experience the Superbowl as a cultish late night drinking marathon. Next year, I'll be watching it as part of the normal US experience... with the added 'benefit' that I will get to see the special Superbowl commercials, which are never shown elsewhere in the world.

My wife and I have known that this move was in the works for a while now, but it has still managed to creep up upon us. It was only in January that we really came to realise that when I fly over to California for GDC this year, I won't be returning to the UK any time soon. I will be an immigrant.

As a result of the move, I expect blogging will be disrupted for the next month or so.

For your sake I hope that the commercials are better than they were this year!

Of course, you can watch the ads after the fact on YouTube, but it hardly makes up for it I am sure...

Hope the move goes well, and that you aren't too Americanised.

Keep the 'U' in colo'u'r!

I can already feel the cultural forces massing to influence me into inferior spelling... Must resist the dark side. :)

Fewer letters is eZer.

Its funny, because I went to a very American Football oriented college, and I was one of like, ten people in the whole goddamn town that didn't watch the superbowl every year.

Do drop me a line if you're going to be near Pittsburgh.

Are you allowed to say where you're going to be working?

I'll still be running International Hobo, Peter, I'll just be doing from (of all places) Tennessee! No idea if this is where we'll end up, but it's where we'll be starting.

I'll definately drop you a line if I go anywhere near Pittsburgh!
