This coming Sunday is practically a national holiday in the United States. It’s the day of the biggest game of the year, and there will be parties across the country. In fact, there are parties planned all over the world.
The perfect (unofficial) holiday
The day’s popularity should not really come as much of a surprise. You get to throw a big party (or attend one), and it’s not primarily just for family; all your friends get to come too. Unlike Thanksgiving or Christmas, you’re also not obligated to invite that one creepy or annoying relative either.
The food is great as well – hot wings, pizza, and nachos. Occasionally, you might even find a veggie tray. Unlike other big holiday meals, there is no pressure to make it absolutely perfect, and you certainly don’t need to get out your grandmother’s china. It’s purely about spending time together with the people you love and simply enjoying each other’s company, along with some good natured ribbing and trash talk.
In a way, it seems like one of the least commercialized holidays of the year. This of course sounds strange considering what advertisers spend this day in terms of money and creative energy to sway consumer opinion, but the American public has even turned this aspect into a form of entertainment that has become part of the day’s events. At most parties, there are typically as many people there to watch the commercials as there are to watch the game. Heck, some parties are actually centered more around the ads than they are around the game itself. It’s like a talent show where companies are the contestants and the public gets to be the judges.
Did I mention that there also happens to be a game?
This year, New England will be facing Seattle in a football game. There are a lot of great personal stories, team histories, and statistics here that make it a compelling matchup, but I’ll leave it to the sports writers to go into all the details. However, TeamViewer and I would like to wish both teams luck and let all of the fans know that we wish them a really wonderful, albeit, unofficial holiday.
On a personal note, had Detroit managed to finally win some playoff games and make it to the big game, this would not be an entirely unbiased article wishing both teams success. In this case however, I can sincerely do so. By the way, if New England happens to win, somebody please give their quarterback a high five. If you’re curious about what I’m referring to, a quick search on YouTube will yield some entertaining results.
TeamViewer and the day after
The game is always on Sunday and starts pretty late in the day. That means that most parties don’t end until well into the evening. As a result, it can sometimes be a bit difficult get an early start on the next day. For occasions such as this, TeamViewer software enables you to do home office. You can log on to your computer at work and quickly finish that report or organize a quick sales meeting. If you want to test TeamViewer for yourself and see how easy it is to use, you can download it at www.teamviewer.com. The software is also entirely free for private users. So, you can also use it to make a video call to your friend in the Seattle or Boston area to express your congratulations or sympathy.
