I learn that “bowl” is a reference to the shape of a football stadium, and the Super Bowl is not, in fact, a bowling tournament
Teens – young adulthood:
I cycle through many years of completely forgetting the time of the Super Bowl and being unpleasantly surprised every time it happens
my brain finally absorbs the information that the Super Bowl is in February every year
I react in shock to the discovery that the Super Bowl is NOT IN THE SAME PLACE every year.
“…wait, it’s called a Bowl because the stadium looks like a bowl, but it’s not even referring to an actual specific STADIUM?”
“…holy god, that means it could end up in MY city?”
