The Super Bowl is just an afterthought for Michael Strahan (STRAY'-han).
The former Super Bowl champion says the real draw is the days of partying leading up to Sunday's game.
At a party Thursday, he said: "By the time you get through the partying, who cares about the game, to be honest with you." He added: "If you party right, the game is the last thing you worry about, you wake up in the fourth quarter."
Strahan _ now a Fox Sports commentator _ won with the New York Giants in 2008. He didn't party during that Super Bowl but didn't feel like he missed anything because he had been to so many Super Bowls before that.
Says Strahan: "If you focus enough and win the Super Bowl, the party is after anyway."
