NFL Super Bowl 45- Texas Showdown

Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers in the Texas Showdown

Hello world,

Today is the day that we have all been waiting for.  Super Bowl 45 will begin at 6:30p.m. at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, and the excitement is at fever pitch.   In a few hours from now, we will witness the much awaited Super Bowl XLV.  After several weeks of regular season games and a series of playoffs,  and the Pro Bowl, the moment we have waited for is almost here. 

By now, if you are not in Dallas or on your way to Dallas, you should at least be prepared for your own Super Bowl party.  There are several things to look forward to during the game.  We have the commercials, the defensive match ups of the two teams, and of course the half time show.  This year the half time show should will feature the Black Eyed Peas This half time show should be chock full of energy because that is what the Black Eyed Peas will bring. 

Well, this is all for now.  Enjoy the game. Steelers Win! Steelers Win!

Super Bowl 45 -Snowstorm in Dallas

Hello world,

We are just about 24 hours away from Super Bowl XLV.  The only people not yet in Dallas are the fans who are stuck in airports in Pittsburgh and Green Bay.  The snow storm is really a phenomenon for the state of Texas and Dallas in particular.   Dallas is not used to this type of weather at all.  Snow!  Motorists driving on ice-covered streets! Unheard of. Yet, that is what is happening in Dallas.  Even Cowboys Stadium roof  is covered with snow, some of which fell off yesterday and injured seven people.   keep reading

SuperBowl Stories

Every Super Bowl“has at least one heart warming story that reminds us that the players are humans just like everybody else. So far, the story that really got my attention is that of Cullen Jenkins. He plays for the Green Bay Packers and this Sunday he is hoping that his father will show up and take his seat in the stands with the other family members. According to reports, his father went to Hawaii in December and the family has not heard from or seen him since.

This has to be a tough time for the entire family and also for Cullen. In the interview on media day he did not go into much detail, but he said enough for the listener to conclude that even though this is weighing very heavily on him as he tries to focus on the biggest game of his life, worrying is not the answer.

Long time ago I heard some say, “you can’t help worrying, and neither can worrying help you.” I Thought about it for a while and then I concluded that the statement was true. It is a story like this that helps us put things in perspective. These football players are wonderful, brave men who for at least 16 Sundays put on uniforms and run through the tunnels of their stadiums to the cheers of adoring fans, and sometimes to the boo’s of the same fans. Fans who have no idea what it took for them to lace up and strap up and come out on the field to play their hearts out.

As we get closer to Super Bowl XLV keep your eyes and ears out for more heart warming stories like these; and when you hear them, if you believe in prayer, then say a prayer for these men and for their families.

Tomorrow I will have my predictions on the Super Bowl. Coming Monday, February 7, I will have a guess blogger from Mary Kay Cosmetics who will share tips on how to care for your skin especially in the winter. This is for men, women and children. If you have skin this is for you. You will learn something. Valentine’s Day is coming up and women do not like dry, tough hands- so men be prepared.

Super Bowl XLV -Two To Tango

Steelers To Packers – We Melt Cheese!

Hello World,

Be prepared to hear Super bowl XLV analyzed to infinity this week. These few days leading up to the Super bowl will be either heaven-sent for football fans or complete nonsense to the casual fans. So, casual fans, let me talk to you first.

Everybody you see on sports channels, talk shows, writing articles in newspapers, to the bookies in Las Vegas is an expert. Most of these experts played the game and the rest have great knowledge of the game. This is where you need to pay attention, these experts are going to know so much you are going to wonder why in the world they are not playing. By Wednesday all of us will become the new experts.

Believe me, by Wednesday you would have heard it all. How is that? Tomorrow is Media Day. All the healthy players from the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers have to speak with the media. Oh, they cannot ask the questions and answer them either. Then on Wednesday the Media is going to analyze what the players said and did not say. Thursday the players are about their business. Practicing! Don’t mention this around Iverson.

On Friday and Saturday Jerry Jones and Dallas will throw parties. Experts are at the parties too, so you won’t hear from them until Monday. So. Just hang on and you will get the hang of it. I will make my predictions on Friday.

To the real football fans – you know what time it is. It’s time to make a decision about who you’re going to root for. It’s time to either get your “terrible towels” out or get your “cheese head” on. Hope you enjoyed reading this. The point is just enjoy each day because time is fleeting. Enjoy your day on purpose.

NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii Today

NFL Pro Bowl-The Prelude to the Super bowl

Hello World,

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday wherever you are in the world. If you were fortunate to take the trip to Hawaii or if you live there, then you are really lucky. The rest of us will have to watch the Pro Bowl game on the television.

The idea of the Pro Bowl should really be revisited.
I think it will be better if it is played after the Super bowl because it would just be the perfect relaxing exercise to help football fans deal with the off-season.

If you are a football fan, the Sunday after the Super bowl is one of the hardest to get through. Since the Super bowl takes us on such a high even if our team is not involved, we watch and then the next Sunday nothing.

Who is really interested in the Pro Bowl today? Let me hear your comments. Super bowl XLV? Can’t Wait!
