Two To Texas – Super bowl XLV

Super bowl forty-five will kick off in exactly 11 days. Jets and Bears fans have been rescued from the fields of depression and are now on the bandwagon of either the Steelers or Packers bandwagon. The loss for New York and Chicago was great, but the teams who are heading to Dallas really played well.

So, who will win Super bowl XLV? I think the Steelers will go in as the favorites and will win. Packers will play them tough and it is going to be a great game. Starting next Monday I will begin a series of surface analysis of the both teams.

Snow Storm

Snow Day 1-27-2011

Another Snow Day

Hello World, here we snow again. This one was another big one. In New York City we had about 18 inches. I just spoke with someone who said in her years she had never seen snow like this. There is snow everywhere. The Mayor has closed New York City Public Schools and when you look outside that was necessary. Public transportation was suspended at 12:30a.m. to allow for plowing. The subway is almost 100 per cent back to normal.

Safety always has to be first, so if you have the day off enjoy it. This is heavy snow that you can really pack and build your snowman. Also, if you have a shovel you can make some money shovelling snow. Call 311 and be prepared with your shovel. One more thing, the snow is blinding – so wear your sun glasses.

Jake Cutler and the Chicago Bears

Jake Cutler and The Chicago Bears

Jake Cutler is perceived by many in the football arena as someone who lacks the emotion that is needed as a leader. This is one case where perception is reality for many people and Jake Cutler is quickly thrown under the bus.

People seem to have expectations of people in position of authority and leadership to show their passion. What they saw of Jake Cutler on Sunday was not what they were expecting for someone who is a few minutes from going to the Super bowl; but no one had the facts. So the tweeters went on Twitterand started tweeting based on perception. Comments from former players and TV analysts started a fire storm. When the truth came out it had many of these “experts” had to back pedal.

The truth of the matter is that some people are more demonstrative than others. People had the same complaint about Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs.

People were also mad when President George Bush was crying on TV immediately after 9-11. Then we have people like Bobby Knight throwing chairs and Lebron James refusing to shake the hands with the Orlando Magic team after losing the conference finals.

Jake Cutler has heart or else he would never play NFL football. That game is rough and you have to be tough- not stupid. How correct are we in our perceptions? Should personality and temperament be taken into account? Say something!
