I'm Ready For Some Football!
OK, troops... everything else is on "pause" for the weekend. Time for me to turn the Cauldron down to a low simmer and watch the final football game of the season. So, your concerns about our municipal budget, egomaniacs on the dais, Fairgrounds follies and all the rest will just have to wait until Monday.
THIS GAME HAS IT ALL!
I hope you'll join me in watching and enjoying what promises to be one heck of a great football game, unlike so many other Super Bowls in the past. This one has it all - great quarterbacks, great defenses... Oh, boy!
TO GET YOU READY
Here's a little low-key taste for you from our pals at NFL Films.
LADIES, FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE
For you ladies, who usually spend Super Bowl Sunday being shooed from in front of the television, this year we've got something special for you. We've got two guys that are defensive destroyers, both from USC, and both have lovely HAIR. I'm speaking, of course, of the Steelers Troy Polamalu and the Packers Clay Matthews.
CHRIS ERSKINE MAKES ME LAUGH
To introduce you to them, here's a link to a column by Los Angeles Times columnist Chris Erskine - he of "Man of the House" fame who also writes some very special sports stuff, too.
CLIPS FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT
And, to show you what stands ahead on Sunday, here are a couple little film clips of those "Sons of Troy" for your viewing pleasure.
I hope we see a great game and my prediction is Packers 30 - Steelers 24.... Now, let's get on with the kickoff! See ya Monday...
