    Although I live 30 miles from Gillette Stadium Im not a big football or Pats fan, but we did have another couple over to watch the game. Heres our final stats:

    Prosecco
    Corona w lime
    Budweiser
    Bogle Essential Red

    Shrimp cocktail
    Chicken Wings
    Buffalo Wings
    Smartfood Cheddar Popcorn
    Homemade guacamole w organic chips
    Homemade pulled pork sandwiches

    Hagendaz milk chocolate almond ice cream
    Sweetened whipped marscapone with fresh strawberries and pistachio biscottis

    Watched the game and talked a lot about our past vacations together. We decided when it was 3-3 if the Pats pull it out were going to Venice and Tuscany in the fall, and if LA wins were taking a river cruise in Germany. Thank god for TB.

    So....7 days till spring training....

    I have a friend who will be 92 tomorrow. She has been having a couple of people over to watch the Super Bowl with her for decades. It's not really about the game any more :-) Slight preference for the Rams and slight dislike for NE but not to the point or really caring who won. Defensive struggle was more interesting than anticipated. Biggest takeaway was all the pop culture references than went over everyone's heads, at least until someone went to the internet to get an explanation of what we just saw.

    We are so quick to anoint dynasties: There was Curt Warner and the St Louis Rams "The Greatest Show on Turf" until they ran into Bill and Tom, there was Russell Wilson and the Seahawks "Legion of Boom" until they ran into Bill and Tom, there was Ben Rothlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers "Terrible Towel" until they ran into Bill and Tom, and who can forget the real Golden Boy Peyton AW Shucks Manning and the Indianapolis Colts who were going to wreck the NFL with 8 Superbowls....they won one and lost 4 AFC Championships when they ran into Bill and Tom.

    There was Walsh and Montana, Shula and Marino, Parcells and Simms, Johnson and Aikman, Levy and Kelly, Lombardi and Starr, Reeves and Theisman and they all pale in comparison to Belechick and Brady. The greatest of all time at their respective positions. Brady has had an 18 year career and half of those years he went to a Super Bowl. Incredible. And he has never had a decent deep threat as a receiver except for one year with Randy Moss. The whole league is throwing to Lamborghinis and Tom has been throwing to Honda Civics.

    IMHO, in the total scheme of things its awfully hard to justify paying guys multi-millions of $ to play around with a ball...but I have been accused of being an old curmudgeon.

    I have about as much interest in "football" (still don't know what the "foot" is doing in here) as most of you have in motocross racing, but I did hear about a lame half-time performer who had to remove his jackets (I heard he had several of them on) to retain some of the audience interest.... given the pics posted on some medias showing a guy with a torso that looks like an ugly-too-busy wallpaper from the seventies (ya know the kind you can't wait tearing off to replace with a nice solid tone satin paint) I wonder how this can possibly have gotten the job done, but somewhat sadly, suspect it did.
    Oh.. and I also heard the corn lobby was upset over a Budweiser commercial advertising for a corn syrup free beer..... the nerve trying to introduce a beverage that does not contribute one iota to the well being of the diabetes epidemic!

    But the real question is, if you had that talent and were offered millions to play the game would you turn it down?? I can guarantee you, I would not. In fact, it wouldn't even take millions to be honest.

    Hello

    And still it is called "Football" ???
    Of course "Footovoid" would sound a bit strange - wouldn't it.
    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute
