Here at the Reader, we take sports very seriously.
But in all seriousness, we weren’t created to regularly cover sports, nor do we plan to any time soon. Ironically, I seem to be the only competitive-sport lover on staff, and I couldn’t care less about the NFL. Nevertheless, the Super Bowl is upon us, and we’re acknowledging it.
Whether you’re in it for the game, the halftime show or the commercials, there are plenty of places around town to get your football fix this weekend.
