Super Bowl wrap-up.

Well, while external sources point to this post being a day late, my internal clock says it’s all good.  Yesterday was after all a holiday, so it’s legit right?

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t an official holiday but Super Bowl Sunday is certainly a rather important day for even the casual football (or tv ad) fan.  The game itself was one that I was particularly interested in the winner of, so I stayed mostly partial throughout (except for those Black and Yellow chants aimed at all my Packer fan friends of course).  And in the end I was perfectly okay with a Packer victory.

The only thing I’m not particularly sure of was Aaron Rodgers getting the MVP.  Oh yes, he had a great game, but as far as individual performances, I thought maybe one of the linebackers (Clay Matthews III?) would have been better.  Or Nick Collins had he not been injured, Jordy Nelson if you take out the drops.  A-Rodge had a good game for about 20 minutes, the other 40 were forgettable.

At any rate, congrats to Green Bay for winning, and congrats to the Steelers for putting up a late fight, sadly you buried yourself early with the turnovers Ben.  Props to Rashard Mendenhall, who proved once again that he can play under pressure, tough luck about the fumble, but he did well outside that.

Back next week with your regularly scheduled programming.

Snow

Breaking my new rules for a little fun input.

I live approximately directly between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois.  What that means for sports affiliations is for another time, what that means for weather, however, is much more interesting.

In the last few days we have received a total of 30 inches of snow.  Which is lovely once it’s all plowed and shoveled and snow blown away.  But sadly, still isn’t finished.  Oh yes, our driveway is done enough to be accessible, and for the most part the roads are okay.  But, take the major cities for example.  Milwaukee is still shut down, with exception to those insane chancellors at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee who’ve decided that plowed roads mean little to a 70% commuter campus.

Now since this is Wisconsin after all, I do need to make some concessions.  Yesterday, after I finished cleaning off the part of my driveway that is clean I went to work.  At Dairy Queen.  We were the only restaurant in town that was open.  We had two people staffed.  It was busy as hell.

Because, as you know, two and a half feet of snow, well that’s nothing.
