Super Bowl Thoughts
I am not a big fan of professional football. It is just THAT…professional…a business for a better term. I have a few favorite teams…mainly due to location and certain team members from my favorite college teams. I am a huge college football fan and am proud of it. However, I do enjoy the excitement of The Super Bowl every year! There is so much pageantry surrounding the actual game that it is hard not to get involved. The build-up and pre-game festivities, the commercials and the half-time show are all a part of the package. My favorite commercials were the two (puppy and soldier) from Budweiser and Radio Shack.
Both teams have a scattering of Southern players on them and both teams are really good. To be honest, I was leaning toward Denver simple because of Peyton Manning. I like the Manning family. (Not that anyone cares.) They have a lot of class and nowhere was that more evident in Peyton than in this colossal loss to Seattle. Graciousness in losing speaks volumes about a player’s character. More times than not, I have been on the side of a college team (I’m and Auburn fan) that is NOT predicted to win a certain game. I will have to say that when that turns around and my team defies the odds and DOES win, it is oh so sweet. For that reason, I am happy for Seattle! It’s all over now and let us move on. As a wise person once said, “It is only game!” Take it from me…that is easier to say when you lose than when you win…or is it?
