Well, okay. Jan 1st through Feb 1st

We have two events where we’re planning TV nights in front of the big Hi-Def centrepiece of our our living room.

On January 20th… “Yes, I won’t… be going to D.C.” But we will be bringing D.C. to our house. Realising that the footage I watched in November looked like, “Washington, NYC, Kenya, Coriscant…” that we need to continue the celebration that evening. So the house will be open to share and watch MORE NEWS COVERAGE.

This of course can be very serious. So there must be mindless violent balance.

So! February 1st… Come join us as we root the Steelers as they become the first team to win 6 Superbowls. Anyone who feels the need to point out that the Steelers haven’t even played in the playoffs yet have obviously missed the point 😉 We are a Steelers house, but we’re also a fair football house. Meaning we recognize good plays even when they happen against our team. We also actually enjoy rating the commercials.

So… standard drill. Comment if you want to come. Pot luck welcome (moreso on Superbowl Sunday) but not necessary. An hour of reduced noise requested during toddler bed time.

Looking forwards to seeing folks.

Back into my cave of seeming to be anti-social.

Oh, yeah. Go read my blog.

But your football team is going down today 😉

CBS Sportsline has a fantastic article about the upcoming game:
Patriots (12-0) vs. Steelers (9-3)

Hidden near the bottom of the page is an interesting poll:

Who will win the game:
Patriots by a blowout
Patriots by a close game
Steelers by a close game
Steelers by a blowout

What’s interesting is not that nearly 17,000 people have voted on this.
Basically the votes are 52-48% in favour of a Patriots win. Only 6% think the Steelers win by blowout.

Where it gets interesting is where the majority of football fans place the balance

Patriots Blowout: 24%
Patriots Close: 28%
Steelers Blowout: 6%

70% think it’ll be a close game. And of those, 60% think it’s going to the Steelers.

Personally, I can’t say. Sure.. I’d love to see the Steelers break another Patriot Winning streak. But both teams have been uneven the past few games. Maybe both have been careless in practice against the teams they faced the last two weeks putting in extra time for this week.

And to Willie Parker… At least it won’t be raining tomorrow.

The Seahawks are in Cleveland.

Today I am a big, BIG Seahawks fan.

Um… go blue?

An open letter…

Dear fiannaharpar,

Thank you on behalf of a first generation fan training a 2nd generation Steelers fan.
