Are You Watching Super Bowl XVI? Or Not?

Poll update at end of post

ARE YOU WATCHING SUPER BOWL XVI? OR NOT?

As the (Pittsburgh) Steeler Nation gathers to watch or listen to the (Super Bowl XLV) game, where will you be?

  • At home or at a friend’s house
  • At a bar/restaurant/club
  • Won’t watch the game

The above is the February 6, 2011, KQV poll question published (on page A12)  in the Greensburg Tribune-Review newspaper (the publish this poll regularly).

While at our house, four persons—my husband, Monte, and three family friends, Lois, Melanie and Joanne—will have their eyes glued on the television set, I will probably work on my writing, trying to catch up.

This isn’t a scientific poll, as Monte noted. Respondents will most likely be viewers, and not include the fact that there might be non-viewers in the same household. Also, the respondents will be readers (or receivers) of the newspaper, which he describes as mostly conservatives. Nonetheless, it’s the question of the day.

Monte suggested that the final vote will be:

  • At home or at a friend’s house:  60%
  • At a bar/restaurant/club: 20%
  • Won’t watch the game: 20%

Monday, February 7, 2011:

  • At home or at a friend’s house (265 respondents):  65%
  • At a bar/restaurant/club (15 respondents): 4%
  • Won’t watch the game (116 respondents): 31%

Watch for them!
