How do I develop an interest in football?

I'm a dork who's never been interested in any sports at all. I've never played or watched any sport. I don't see why it's so interesting. But sports, especially football, is one of the most-watched type of show on television. The Superbowl is like a national holiday. I feel like I'm missing out on something big. How do I develop an interest in football (or other sports) after a lifetime of disinterest? What makes football exciting that should be obvious?

Minimalist Thanksgiving

I need help finding some really easy, uncomplicated one-pot Thanksgiving recipes! I'll be hosting an orphan's potluck for 4-8 people at my place this year and I need to provide a couple dishes. Problem is, I'm a notoriously shitty cook which means I never cook which means I have a really understocked kitchen. And I'm kinda poor. [more inside]

How to recover from a swimming position to avoid doing the somersault?

Hello, I'm an adult learning how to swim. I've been learning how to swim by myself at a YMCA pool where there's a lifeguard around. I have been able to do the streamline kick without floatie at the 3-ft end. However, I realize that when I start adding the arm movement, I lose my balance on the water and I start to panic. At certain times, I felt like I would start doing the somersault if I wasn't near the edge of the pool to grab onto it. Can you show me an effective way to recover and get my feet down to the bottom of the pool and get my head back up? When I swim toward the deeper end, there's more buoyancy and I panic when I can't get my feet down. Thanks so much for your advice!

old peugeot road bike make sense for a beginner

I am looking to get into road cycling, but I cannot afford even the basic entry level bikes (with the Trek 1.1 running at $700 - and the others going on up in price). I found several old Peugeot bikes from the 70s and 80s on Craigslist in my area that are available for under $200. My question is would one of these old high quality bikes work or would I just be riding an albatross (so to speak)? I want to be able to keep up with my buddies if we ride together - so would I be too slow and/or worn out on an older bike? If people in the 70s could bike long distance on these things, why can't we today?

Explain the Diva Plavalaguna song to me, please?

Please explain, in simple terms, the Diva Plavalaguna song, from the film The Fifth Element to me. I'd like to know more about the technical aspects of the song. I'm looking for the terms I'd need to plug into Google to find more music of the same style. I'm specifically talking about the first part of the song where the singer is singing in Italian, not the electronica-y second part. Also, I'm looking for recommendations for other similar music.

Adult beginner soccer training/camps in the U.S.?

Adult beginner soccer training/camps in the U.S.? I'm a relatively new player (started a couple of years ago). I play on a couple of teams, but as fun as games are they're just not the best way to develop basic skills; I really need a structured practice environment and feedback. I'm considering going to this camp, but I'm wondering if there's anything similar in the U.S. (Google turns up a bunch of camps for kids, but very few for adults, and even fewer for adult beginners.) West Coast would be best, but I'm willing (obviously) to travel further afield if need be.

So I'm gonna surf. What do I need to know?

I want to take up surfing. I live by the sea (for the first time in my life) and I used to skateboard as a teenager, so it seems a good choice of hobby for a fat woman approaching the mid-life crisis and wanting both fun and exercise. What do I need to know? Can I just get a cheap 2ndhand board and a massive wetsuit and go for it? Or should I take lessons? What sort of board should a starter surfer get? Tell me all about the fun of riding the waves...
