Congratulations to the Ravens!! They won the Super Bowl!!! That’s a big deal, right? Being an international student myself, and hailing from a country where, like many countries in the rest of the world, soccer is the most popular sport, I have to admit that it took me some time to fully appreciate how great American football is, and what it means to everyone here. By some time, I mean four years at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, whose football team is one of the biggest college football teams in the country (Go Blue! Go Wolverines!). Add four more years to that in Baltimore -at Hopkins- where I am becoming more and more excited about our very own Ravens as time goes by.
Watching the Super Bowl was very exciting; as exciting as watching a movie! The defense, the wonder passes from our quarterback, and the long dashes from what looked to be the middle of the field all the way to the touch down area! The most exciting part was at the final whistle, it felt as if all of Baltimore screamed “GO RAVENS!” all at the same time, followed by the celebration afterwards. We are lucky enough to be in a city that has arguably the best place to do science, and the World champions of American football!
Question of the month: on Super Bowl Sunday, where did you watch the game?
