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!)

  1. I happen to personally love football. I am incredibly upset with the lack of sportsmanship the Steelers showed with some of the unnecessary roughness that was displayed even my 4 year old said mom the yellow guys aren’t very nice. On a better note it was a good night and I am with you peel and eat shrimp are an awesome reason to hit a super bowl party that and my chili cheese rotel awesomeness I make!

    Happy Monday.

  2. Well, first of all, I’ve been in St. Louis longer than Warner, so I’ve got nothing to prove to him. 🙂

    Also, I guess I’m the only person left who remembers his last year on the team when he was lying about his hand injury and putting himself in the way of the coaching staff at every turn. I remember a LOT of people being mad about that at the time and being VERY happy when he left…but since his name’s in the papers and it’s not for shooting anyone, I guess we’re claiming him again. So…right on…
