The Pro Bowl

I am about to go and turn on the television to watch the Pro Bowl. I wonder how Michael Vick and Drew Brees will share responsibility. I also wonder how Peyton will look and how many players from LSU and UL backgrounds and from the Saints made it this year — since I have not checked the list. I hope that there will be an enjoyable game and some good discussion of Hawaii and the Super Bowl.

NFL Conference Championships

Today, my dearly beloved Saints are not contending.
Today, my foot pain is acting up.
Today, it is cold for south Louisiana.
Today, I have some blog posts I am preparing.
Today, I will go to Mass.
Today, I hope to see and enjoy time with my mother and one of my brothers.
Today, I have many things on my mind.

BUT SOMEHOW IN ALL THAT I HOPE, PRAY AND PLAN TO SPEND HOURS WATCHING MOST OR ALL OF THE AFC AND NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES.

A note about the games is that both the NFC Championship and the AFC will be very cold weather games.

A note about the NFC Championship is that there few sports rivalries  as great or greater than the Bears and the Packers.

A note about the AFC Championship is that people my age think of the Jets as Joe Namath’s old team that dies.

A note about the AFC is that the Steelers are perennials and the Jets are not.

A note about  the AFC is there have not been a lot of Hispanic QBs in AFC’s Championships.

A note about the NFC is that the field is a mess.

Sunday Thoughts

Today is Sunday. I am watching CBS Sunday Morning as I write this. I am a bit tired from the thirteen inning  American League Championship  Series Game Two.  I am preparing to go to Mass at the little church near my house and then I have to decide between a distant picnic and watching the Saints play the Giants alone. I am probably going to watch the Saints.

 

I like taking Sundays easy. I do miss the times when that included spending more time with family, friends a wife or girlfriend than it sometimes does now. But I do think if one cannot waste a good day on things that are not at all work then all of one’s work is likely to be misdirected and to suffer in quality as well.

Have a good Sunday! If not this one then sometime soon.
