This weekend, my husband and I are both going to be enjoying sporting events at which the national anthem will be sung. The difference is, I’ll be singing it at one, while Zach will get to hear Christina Aguilera’s rendition at the other.
That’s right, folks: my husband is going to the Superbowl.
Not that I’m jealous or anything. I mean, how often do I get the chance to perform the Star-Spangled Banner for our local minor league hockey team? Chance of a lifetime, if you ask me…although the monster truck rally back in high school comes in as a close second :)
All kidding aside, I’m extremely happy for Zach. Football is one of his passions — he’s almost as good at fantasy football as he is at selling insurance. But not only does Zach get to enjoy watching the Steelers vs. Packers; he also gets to enjoy the sounds of Lea Michele, the Black-Eyed Peas, and the aforementioned Christina Aguilera.
He’s promised to take lots of pictures and videos, and in return, I assured him that my mom would record my performance (not much has changed since my childhood). One thing is safe to say: we’re both very excited about our sporty, star-spangled weekends. Go Steelers and Springfield Jr. Blues!
