Super Bowl LII

Sloshing Drinks

If not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow would be lost…

The day of the big game has arrived and like most of America, I’m wondering who to root for. I say this, because of the 32 NFL teams only two now remain. Leaving so many hometown fans unmoored and if like me you’re from Saint Louis, you never even had a dog in the fight. I could choose the safe bet and go with the Patriots, but what would be the fun of that? Or, I could go with the Eagles and root for the underdog, but I don’t have any rubber dog masks. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to stoop to rooting for injuries. There have already been enough concussions. Maybe I’ll just take a knee, sit this game out and laugh at the commercials.

If not for the courage of the fearless bartender, the tiki bar would be lost…

While we were dining two-weeks ago in Florida, after New England won its qualifying playoff game, a particularly drunk Patriots fan burst into the bar and tried to lead the house in a cheer for his team. He got nada, crickets. When I pointed out to him that this is after all the south, he took it personally and in retribution stole the roll of paper towels that was serving as napkins. There were quite a few northerners there, but they were all soon to be disappointed Vikings fans. At least their team’s city gets the consolation prize of hosting today’s game and all for the cost of only a billion dollars in new stadium costs. No thank you. In keeping with my ho-hum approach to this Super bowl, we elected to stay home this year, primarily for environmental reasons. This keeps our carbon footprint down to the space on the couch taken up by our butts.

If not for the courage of the fearless quarterback, the big game would be lost…
