Imagine living in the city of one of the teams. Ridiculous 24/7 coverage. So who ever wins, then comes the Pro Bowl. Of course they aren't going to send their very best players and we have to listen to who they will send.

I tune in to our local news. There is an Amber Alert. So when do we get to hear about it? More than 15 minutes into the broadcast. First we have the weather, not only for that day, but for the day of the game. And then for the Championship game. The newscasters, the weather person, the traffic person. the sports folks all manage to talk about how their job of reporting is affected by this one most important game in the world. Ad Nauseum.

You're welcome. I've been watching his Lion videos all day. Sounds like something I would love doing.

I'm going to try and stay out, wandering stores for three hours today, see if I can handle it. I already did my 45 minute walk this morning.

Off to The Good Food Store...see if I can find a weird veggie to try and if anything sounds good for dinner.

The Pats always defer the opening coin toss too. I think the logic is you have the opportunity to have the ball for two consecutive possessions at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half. That could result in two consecutive scores.

Pacanis; I have a question for you. I just found what looks like an empty gun shell. It is very tiny and brass colored. On the bottom it says REM. Does that mean it is a Remington? Thanks, JoAnn

Yes it does, JoAnn.
Most of the modern ammo makers stamp their abbreviated name on the bottom.

The talent difference is very evident in this game, Andy.
And Denver's D line is too much for NE.
