Unless you live under a large rock you know that the Super Bowl is this Sunday. You also know that the New York Giants are playing the perfect 18-0 Patriots. And if you didn’t know now you do.
There is a problem with being perfect though: It’s boring!
When you go to that very fancy restaurant with the four star reviews and they’ve got the fine linen and the coordinated presentation of dishes, it costs hundreds of dollars to eat there.
But it’s okay, because they’re perfect.
Which is a problem.
Because dinner consists of not much except noticing how imperfect they are. The second course came six minutes later than it should of (ten, even!). The salad was really good, but not as perfect as it was last time. And the valet…you had to wait in the cold for at least thirty seconds before your car came. What a let down.
A let down?
The place is a gift in a world filled with compromise. And all you can do is notice that it’s not perfect. I think it’s more productive to focus on interesting.
Interesting is attainable, and interesting is remarkable. Interesting is fresh every day.
The Giants are interesting. And they are going to be even more interesting when they beat the New England Patriots this Sunday!
I can see the headline already, “18 Straight Wins and 1 GIANT Loss!”
Let’s go Blue! Let’s GO!
P.S. I’m doing boxes with my lucky brother-in-law!
