Superbowl Sunday

I’m in Seattle today, Superbowl Sunday.  I’m not a crazy football fan.  I can hardly name a player on either team, the Seahawks or Patriots.  But the Superbowl is a different football game.  Especially if you happen to be in Seattle on the day it is being played.

This town is Superbowl crazy.  Everywhere, everyone is nuts about the game today.  Beyond what I could have imaged.

Normally, in Topeka, we go out for a good ride today.  For some reason, we’ve had pretty good weather on Superbowl Sunday historically.  So, we get in a good ride, then meet up at someone’s house and get together to watch the game and eat.  That is what the Superbowl is really about I think . Getting together with friends, eating, watching the special commercials, and finally the game.

That’s not the order here, though.  It’s the game, then the game, and finally the game.

I’m still going out for a long ride hopefully.  Then am going to come back and get warm and watch the game.  Trudi is a crazy sports fan and she’s gonna be glued to the game.  I doubt we’ll go out and watch it in the mayhem of Seattle, but you never know.

I guess Pioneer Square is going to be nuts tonight if the Seahawks win today.  I’d probably wander over there to check it out if that is the case.  I like people watching.

Waiting for luggage last night, everyone is dressed in Seahawk colors.

Even the Walberg's door flies the 12th man logo.

I saw these guys at luggage claim while waiting for my bike.  They are all here trying out for the Seattle Symphony.  I talked to one of them and he said he thought about 150 guys were coming to try out for one slot.  Wow.  Must be a good symphony.

This is Inky, who I'm house sitting for.  She is a little shy right now, but we get along good.

    Be glad you’re there. Right now, here in Topeka it’s 23 degrees, slick in many spots, and has been snowing pretty much all day. Not really a light fluffy snow, but the nasty thick wet stuff. Not real conducive to making me want to go out and ride.

    We don’t get excited about the Superbowl so much because Kansas really isn’t involved in it. When was the last times the Chiefs were in the Superbowl? Or even in contention?

      Clifford-The guy said they cost about $3500 new. Guess they are protecting pretty expensive instruments. The guys even flew with their own stools.

    The ultimate in ‘bandwagon fans.’ And Patriot’s fans should all be happy they aren’t facing the Packers today.

    If I was in Seattle, it would be a perfect day to head to a show, and take that long bike ride. Everybody will be off the roads watching the Pre-pre-pre game show. This afternoon I’m shoveling a foot of snow (more to come)
    You should have said that the Symphony bass player was actually going to be in the halftime marching band.

      Hey Levi,

      I finally, completely agree with you!

      Yeah Pats! Go Bruins!

      And Levi is definitely not a New Englander.
