Well, it seems that we've won a Super Bowl. Now, don't think that I'm one of those guys who thinks that team sports are for chumps and that I'm above it all. No indeed, I'm very much a football fan. I don't care about college standings; I'm only interested in the pros. I watched today's game at a Chinese restaurant in Edmonds with a few friends. We were the youngest people there. It was very exciting. And yes, the Seahawks won. I don't feel bad for the Broncos. Peyton Manning got his MVP last night and most people expected their offense to march down the field at will. That didn't happen. The Seahawks beat them worse than they did in the preseason. It was a complete rout. I mean, they even sent in their second-string QB in the fourth quarter. How often does that happen? It's pretty darn rare in a Super Bowl, I tell you what. Right now, we're reaping the downside of the game. There are lots of idiots roaming around Belltown screaming. I understand that people are happy. It was a great game. But please refrain from screaming. And also, don't be honking around here. That's just as bad. Anyhow, congratulations to the Seahawks. Although the NFC Championship was completely nerve-racking, the Super Bowl was a joy to watch from start to finish.
