Last Man (or Woman): A game for those not interested in NFL. Or at least the Superbowl result.

Is there a generous monetary award for the winner?

Attorneys for Aaron Hernandez would like to know.

I tried to do something similar with the Brazil/Germany World Cup game (so I could watch it after work), but on my drive home I had to get gas and I overheard one guy yell the half-time score to another. Granted, that's not the official final score, but you can be pretty damn sure you knew who won that game at that point...

Didn't you think he was lying?

My initial thought was "Germany is outshooting Brazil 5 to 1?!", but then his buddy yelled back "GTFO!" and the first guy said "No, seriously. It's 5 to 1 for Germany!", and so I realized it was the score.

When I'm trying to avoid a sports result my mind works feverishly to figure it out anyway from incomplete pieces of information. So if a friend asks me if I've seen the game yet I obsess over whether his tone and word choice suggested a win or loss.

Lately during the Super Bowl I've been contemplating what life is like for the people who don't care about the game and go out that night. I picture a world like the movie where Will Smith, his dog and zombies are the only thing left.
