(Edited image above to reflect final score) Ok, so that was a bit of a tease since it’s still a few hours before the 6:30 PM kickoff as we wait for what is debatably the biggest sporting event of the year, the Superbowl (thinking World Cup). Anyway the marketeers have been out in force prepping their million dollar ad campaigns and pushing snacks and beer. Pizza and wing restaurants are staffing to fill all those last minute food orders and those going to the game in person “last minute” have found ticket prices nearing the 5-digit range. A bit steep for a football game … definitely not the economic numbers signaling, or even Tom Brady-like, “deflation.”
With all the build up and expectation that this will be one of the better match ups, I do hope NFL fans get their monies worth? Thankfully I don’t have a dog in the fight, but admit I do enjoy rooting against the Patriots … even if they are in the Bengals and Browns conference (I usually will cheer for an AFC team). This time, the “nice guy” Russell Wilson has won me over … even if this is his second trip to the big game.
As the Hank Williams Jr. MNF intro goes … “Are you ready for some football?”
