Super Weekend

I hope all of you were rooting for the Packers. – I DID!
For those that follow football, or at least the Super Bowls.
A few years ago the Seattle Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl.
They were playing the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers won – on a touchdown that was not – clearly.

Hard feelings? Only once a year when it is Super Bowl time.
Other than that, not so close to the surface.

But I was rooting for Green Bay, all the way.
And best of all – the $5 I put into our little Super Bowl pool – won the final score!
A gain of $35. First time ever for me.

Joining the pool and following my numbers is one of the things that keeps me following the game until the end. In all of the years I have purchased my meager amount of numbers, I have never won. This year at the 3rd quarter I did not see how I was likely to come out on top this year. [The two point conversion was not foreseen, at least by me.]

OK – enough of that.
What is really going on is more filing and finding papers to shred.
And learning what a Billiken is.
And, now taxes.

      Rey told me that professional baseball in east Tennessee will be celbrating its 100th anniversary at their opening day game. So – throwback teams to 100 years ago. The Montgomery Billikens will be their opponent.

    I went to a friends house – the wife is from Green Bay and the basement was totally decorated. we had a great time and learned towards the end of the game that her husband had bet $50 on Green Bay bck in November, out in Vegas. I think he said it was 9 – 1 odds or somthing like that.

    I had to quit watching when the game got close. I found myself actually, uh, caring. But, since I consider myself a jinx at sporting events, I left the room. And the Packers won!

    Hmm, I was thinking of the St. Louis University Billikens (and the Webster University Gorloks).
