Okay. I admit it. When push came to shove, I really didn’t care who won Super Bowl XLVII today which is unusual for The Red Man who typically has a favorite team I pulled halfheartedly for Baltimore because of the Chris Culliver episode on Media Day earlier this week, but I won’t go into that again tonight. Of course the old woman Slow would NEVER miss the Super Bowl, and I confess I was hooked right along with her from the pre-game ceremonies to the presentation of the Vince Lombardi Trophy afterwards. Here’s why…
Jennifer Hudson singing America the Beautiful
with the Sandy Hook Elementary Choir
(The old woman Slow wept.)
Alicia Keys sang The National Anthem
Keys on Key – Francis Scott would’ve been proud
Our Heroes in Afghanistan were watching, too
Paw Snaps and Twirls to all of you at Camp Courage
The Red Man is grateful to you
Halftime – Beyonce – Hot
Halftime – Spectacular
As our Dutch friend says, Americans know how to do Spectacles
Halftime – Beyonce – Hot
Oops – did I already mention Beyonce??
After a weird 34-minute delay in the second half,
the 49ers decided to play football. Game on.
Dad and Mom Harbaugh happy their son Coach John won
Uh, oh. Their son Coach Jim lost
Baltimore QB Joe Flacco named MVP
Slow talked about a couple of other Joes that were MVPs in the thrilling days of yesteryear…
like Namath and Montana
Baltimore wins and takes Lombardi Trophy home
If you win it, then they’re gonna put a ring on it
Get me outta here Percy…football season’s over for the year and we’ve had a great time, but we are movin’ on down the line…stay tuned, Sports Fans and get ready for Monday mornin’ quarterbackin’ at the office tomorrow…
Great post, Red.. lol 😀
Thanks so much, angelswhisper2011! We are happy when our Sports Fans like us!!
I didn’t see the game, but heard the last part was a cracker (and Beyonce was very hot!) 😀
Yes, exactly – a cracker!! And Beyonce was very hot for sure…:) Next up…the Canberra Raiders!!
Oh dear – I’m worried that they’ll fall in a heap for the first part of the year – just like they do every year 😦
Yes, but then they rally and do splendidly and make the playoffs so there you are…too soon for despair…:)
Hey Red, let Ma know if there are ever horses on the field. That’s the only way we’ll get her to watch!!! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the half-time entertainments!
Oh my dear Poppy there are too many H-O-R-S-E-S in Texas – they’re EVERYWHERE – your Ma would be in Horse Heaven!! Frankly, I fine them to be irritating beasts and I bark whenever I see one…you can just imagine how tired I get…
