Superbowl Quest

If you have zero interest in the Superbowl hype, you're not alone. Pundits attempting ad nauseum to predict an unpredictable game can get tiresome.

On the other hand, the Superbowl is such an American institution at this point, for 36 years now, that we can surely dredge up a little sympathy for Americans traveling abroad who can't find a way to watch the game.

Rolf Potts knows the disenfranchised feeling. He's been in Asia for 5 years and he's lived the pain of being an exile without a Superbowl to watch. I'm asking you to put aside your loathing of all things Superbowl, if that's where you stand, and try to relate to Rolf and his quest to connect with his memories of home.
