Super Bowl

Quite honestly, I didn’t watch much of the Super Bowl. I like the 49ers ok, but I didn’t much care who won. I actually went to bed before it was over. I did, however, watch the commercials. They were ok, but nothing spectacular. I liked rhe Lil Nas and Sam Elliot commercial. It was cute. The Ellen and Portia commercial was too. The rest did not stand out for me. The Trump campaign commercial was full of lies, but what would you expect. The man can’t tell the truth for anything. The halftime show was actually not too bad. Overall, the LIV Super Bowl was just kind of blah.


Yet Another Monday

The Super Bowl basically sucked. I found it rather boring. The commercials, usually the best part, were mediocre at best. There were a few standouts: Mercedes, T-Mobile, and, my favorite, Amazon Alexa. I found the Washington Post ad to be rather moving, but the rest, I just wasn’t that impressed. What did you think?

I also had a terrible headache yesterday. The worst I’ve had in four years. I took the maximum amount of pain killers I could and spent most of the day in bed. Finally my headache eased enough for me to make dinner and watch the Super Bowl. The headache never did go away fully. I went to bed with it still bothering me.

So with such a sucky Sunday, let’s hope it’s a better Monday.

Moment of Zen: Sports


Moment of Zen: Football


Relax

Today will be another busy and long day. We have the opening reception tonight, so I won’t get home until after 6 pm. Tomorrow though will be a day to relax. The only exception to that may be watching McCain’s funeral, which won’t exactly be relaxing. However, the rest of the day will be spent watching college football. The season starts tomorrow, and I’m so excited.


Monday Again

It looks like it might be a mild week here in Vermont. The temperature will be mostly in the 40s with rain on Wednesday and Friday. We may even have sun on those non-rainy days. Mud season seems to have arrived. The snow is melting and the mud is everywhere.

Work should be fairly routine this week. There is nothing unusual going on this week. Well, maybe one thing out of the ordinary. We have to take samples off an artifact for testing, which will be interesting. Otherwise, it should be a routine week.

Not much else is going on. I’m disappointed that Duke and Texas Tech lost last night. I just hope that Loyola Chicago can win their next game and make it to the final. It’s exciting when a Cinderella team does well, especially when the team chaplain is a dynamic 98 year old woman named Sister Jean.


Winter Olympics

Each night when I turn in the Olympics, my eyelids grow heavy and I fall asleep. I end up watching them the next day because I have been recording them. It’s not that I find them boring, I just can’t seem to stay awake.


Adam Rippon

I love this picture of Adam and Gus. Both are so handsome. Adam did fabulous last night, though his score did not reflect it like it should have. Here is one more Adam and Gus pic.

Also, last night was the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery. Wow! What an episode. Like so many of the episodes this season, it was jam packed with action. Also, it had a surprise ending that I’m not sure anyone saw coming.


Olympics

Last night was the beginning of competition. Tonight will be the opening ceremonies. I watched last night because it was mainly figure skating. It’s one of the few winter sports that I care anything about watching. I watched the men’s short program for team skating (I recorded the couples because they were on too late). The men’s program was quite disappointing. There was a lot of hype over some of the skaters just to watch them fall down. Plus, Johnny Weir was a commentator and he’s just a snarky bitch. It’s one thing to be a snarky bitch around friends who appreciate it, but it’s another thing to be on live TV and be a snarky bitch. I did not care for the men’s program last night. Let’s hope the opening ceremony is fabulous.


Super Bowl

It really didn’t matter to me who won, the Patriots or the Eagles. I’m not a fan of either. I probably lean more toward the Eagles because I like their QB Nick Foles, and I don’t like the Patriot QB Tom Brady. No matter who plays, many of us still watch the game because we want to see the commercials. If you watched it for the commercials, what was your favorite?
