It's Super Bowl Weekend, so naturally, there had to be a Super Bowl Weekend Assignment:
Weekend Assignment #46: Make one new rule to apply to the Super Bowl. This new rule can apply to any aspect of the Super Bowl, from the game to the spectators, to the halftime show, to the commercials. If it's got something to do with the Super Bowl, you can make up a rule about it.
Extra Credit: Your pick for winner of the Super Bowl. Naturally, don't bother doing the extra credit if it's Sunday evening.
MRS. LINKLATER'S NEW RULE FOR THE SUPER BOWL:
Every player who scores a touchdown, either by rushing or catching the ball, is required to jump into the arms of one of his blockers, spike the ball over the goal posts, walk like a chicken, pretend to moon the crowd, make a call on a cell phone, leap into the first three rows of fans, shake a couple of cheerleader's pom poms, autograph the football, and perform a celebration dance of his choice for not less than one minute. Or the score will be nullified.
Along with the points scored, the referees can award up to four additional points based on style, effort, originality, and degree of difficulty. [Watch out for the Russian Line Judge.]
This will be in lieu of the halftime show that John Scalzi has already cancelled.
Extra Credit: WHO WINS? The Patriots will win the game. But Mrs. Linklater will be cheering for the Eagles.
