My Super (Bowl) Essay

While I was being very serious about writing at the AWP conference in NYC today, this essay of mine went up online, which in the whole scheme of things was much more important…at least if you are a Jersey girl and New York Giants fan. Of all the hundreds of thousands -- millions? -- of words that will be written about the Super Bowl this weekend, they may not be the most significant. But they made me kind of popular with the boys in my house!

Very cute essay Lisa, and I don't follow football at all!

Ah....those carefree moments before children.
