Steph:  Are you gonna watch the Orange Bowl tonight?

John:  Is that the national championship college football game?

Steph:  Yeah. Totally.

John:  Ya know, I want to, if I can get home from work early enough. Are you going to?

Steph:  Well, I’m gonna watch it. But I’m not really into sports. I’m watching it so I can see this new video from U2.

John:  Oh, really? What’s the song called?

Steph:  It’s, ya know, it’s a love song. It’s something like ‘All About You’ or something like that. Have you heard of that one?

John:  No, I haven’t heard of it.

Steph:  Oh. Well, um, I haven’t really heard the song myself. I just read about it in Rolling Stone[/def].

John:  So, are you a big U2 fan?

Steph:  I really used to be. I really liked that song One.

John:  That was great. I saw their concert in my old college town, in Eugene. It was awesome.

Steph:  You jerk! I wanted to see them play.

John:  Yeah. It was really neat, in my hometown and everything.

Steph:  That’s cool. Well, I’ll get to see them on TV tonight and so will you if you watch the game.

John:  Yeah. Hopefully I won’t miss it.

It’s really cool when they combine music with other types of entertainment. Since I don’t really like to watch sports, I am usually not interested in the games.
They did a great job getting some fantastic performers and showing this video really got me to watch the game. How clever!
