Super Bowl?

Years ago, Duane Thomas of the Dallas Cowboys was asked what it was like to be getting ready to play in the "ultimate game." His response: "How can it be the ultimate game if they play it again next year?"

The Super Bowl has become a cultural phenomenon. Probably as many people watch it for the commercials as for the game. This year didn't deliver either one. Neither team played like a championship team, and the commercials (except for the Budweiser Clydesdale colt) weren't memorable.

I'm glad Pittsburgh won, but if I were a Seahawks fan I would be ticked. There were at least two crucial calls that went against them. Both resulted in touchdowns for the Steelers. And one took points away from the Seahawks.

Well, with that behind us -- this week ushers in the Winter Olympics. It doesn't seem as if there has been much hoopla over this. Maybe I've just missed it.

All of this is just a lead-up to THE event (No, I'm not talking about anything related to NASCAR): The Masters. I love it!

I think you meant "March Madness". Nothing beats the college basketball playoffs.

I agree with you Jenny, the intensity is overwhelming! Just kidding with you Rick! I prefer the Stanley Cup myself... GO STARS!!

I question the priority here. Clearly, the focus and anticipation is on turkey season which opens in April and prairie dogs which follow very shortly. I think I may have watched four minutes of the superbowl while I was typing on the computer. Did someone win?
