The Super (commercial) Bowl: Sunday night entertainment

It was Super Bowl Sunday, and I was home alone.

With my husband out of town, Sunday evening was all mine to do as I wished. I was looking forward to having complete control of the TV remote.

I started the evening watching a recorded episode of "Downton Abbey," the current Masterpiece Classic series.

When 6:30 p.m. rolled around, the episode had just ended and I surfed the TV listings for quite a while. In the end, finding nothing else of interest to watch, I decided to turn on the Super Bowl game after all, but not really to watch the game.
