SUPER BOWL 45 STORIES: They Abound

Super Bowl 45 is now history. The Packers won! I always hate it when the best team loses and I believe the Steelers were the best team. The problem? They all suffered from foot problem. Foot problem, you ask? Yes! THEY KEPT SHOOTING THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT. A team cannot commit the errors they committed and win. They did and they lost. That Simple!

Here is a story for all you DIE-HARD SUPER BOWL FANS.

THE PERFECT SUPER BOWL SEAT!

Bob received a free ticket to the Superbowl from his company. Unfortunately, when Bob arrived at the stadium he realized his seat was in the last row in the corner of the stadium He was closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the field.

About halfway through the first quarter, Bob noticed an empty seat 10 rows off the field right on the 50-yard line. He decided to take a chance and made his way through the stadium and around the security guards to the empty seat.

As he sat down, he asked the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?" The man said "No". Very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Bob said to the man next to him, "This is incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at the Superbowl and not use it?"

The man replied, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but SHE PASSED AWAY. This is the first Superbowl we haven't been together since we got married in 1967."

"That's really sad," said Bob, "But still, couldn't you find some one to take the seat? A relative or close friend?"

"NO," THE MAN REPLIED, "THEY'RE ALL AT THE FUNERAL."

Funny? I don't know but what I know people just like that. Do you? Hope he was a Packer fan.

BYE-THE-BYE, can you imagine Grammy-award winner Christa Aguilera, performing before her biggest audience ever, and not knowing the National Anthem? Forgetting a song is Standard Operating Procedure for an amateur like me. I often have that problem with the Soggy Bottom Bunch Jug Band, Singers & Dancers. I even get mixed up sometimes calling square dances. But, at a Super Bowl game? Truly, sad!

WHY BOTHER GOING TO A GAME BETWEEN THE STEELERS AND GREENBAY ANYWAY? Not me! Sure, and now why is that, you may be asking? Everyone knows that the Steelers dropped their cheerleaders in 1970 and the Packers in 1988. As for me it is GO COWBOYS!
Take care and stay warm. Spring is 42 days away.

If the snow ever melts away we'll soon be seeing SPRING FLOWERS peeking through the ground.

Hang on Snoopy, hang on!

God Bless!
