Superbowl – Slight Detour – Punchline – Footnote

So the Cardinals blew it. I’m kind of okay with that because I don’t like Kurt Warner (not sure why), but still…first time in my lifetime they were even IN the Superbowl (first time in franchise history, I think), it would’ve been kinda cool to see them win it. At least it was a fun-to-watch game.

 

Most of you know that I’m not really into sports anyway. The Superbowl’s pretty much the only full-length game I watch all year. Even still, my favorite part of the game was BRUUUUUUCE Springsteen and the E Street Band in the halftime show (I’ll be buying the new record this week, btw). Mostly, I just go to the party for the peel-and-eat shrimp (and this year I may have topped my personal best for number consumed). Also there are some folks who show up that I enjoy spending time with. This year was lesser-attended though, mostly because the lawn of the house (where everyone parks) was still snow-covered, and what wasn’t snowy was muddy. I can see why people wouldn’t want to deal with that. (In fact, walking to my car at the end of the night, I slipped on some ice, but got my balance before I hit the ground or lost any significant dignity.)

 

This last snow-storm really left things weird all over, didn’t it? Even parking lots that are usually TOTALLY fine have been treacherous this week, I think (I’m mostly talking about the grocery store and Best Buy, if you’re curious). I’m thinking that’s why not too many people came out to the Feldman gig on Friday, too. (We were in Wentzville and the snow was still THICK on the grassy areas and some of the concrete, too.) It’s amazing how nature just makes things stop sometimes, isn’t it?

 

…bet the Cardinals wish there would’ve been a snow storm in the middle of #92’s run into the endzone, huh?

Current Listening:

  • A mix mostly consisting of the Old 97s, Frank Black, and Aimee Mann. Somehow, it works. Can’t explain it.

Current Watching:

  • “House” marathon on USA. (I love “House,” but seriously…how many freaking “House” marathons can USA do? Seems like they have one a week!)
