When it comes to being a jaded New Yorker, I could win Olympic gold. The Superbowl brought Christmastime-level throngs of tourists into the city. Given that I live in midtown, the extra people -- and their giant parkas -- in the neighborhood were no bueno.
Then this afternoon I was coming out of dance class (tap, if you were curious) and I saw these two ladies in Times Square. They are twins from British Columbia, and clearly Seahawks fans. It's this kind of happy zealousness that makes me think that perhaps this faux holiday isn't so bad.
