(no subject)

I'm not a bad Jew if I go to a friend's home to watch the Eagles game on Sunday (during the last day of holidays, as I observe Judaism, after 3.5 weeks of very frequent holdays), right? Especially if I keep the letter of the law (as I observe it) as to what can and can't be done on holidays, and all I'd be violating is the spirit of the law and of the holiday? Does your answer change if my reasoning is as much about being sick of the holidays as it is about not wanting to miss my third straight Eagles game?
