Superbowl Sunday

Finally the day is here to watch big sweaty men beat the crap out of each other for a big shiny trophy. Now how in the hell can anything be better than that.
I am a huge fan of football. I have been drooling over it ever since I first saw Sweetness make a move and the other guy fall on his face. It was such a magic moment seeing what exactly a human body could do. It was to me ballet.
For those of you that are sportstards, Sweetness is Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears. I grew up watching him, Jim McMahon, the Fridge, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders and well of course Sweetness.
These guys were for me my heros. They were also the one thing me and my dad had in common. I have never had it confirmed but I tell ya my dad had to want a boy for his first kid. Instead he got me. My mom tried to keep me in dresses and girly stuff but it just never stuck. Than my sister came along and well mom had her doll. I just sort of went out and played in the dirt.
Now a days I can play in the dirt on the softball field, come home to my hubbie and kids and just be me. IT is always nice to have someone there that you never have to be someone else for. I can just be me and that is good enough. But that is a post for another day, like my anniversary. Damn now I have to remember which day it is.
Back to what this post is about, football is a sport that everyone should not only look at as full contact but also a struggle. A struggle of 2 teams trying to outwit the other. It is the ulimate guessing game. If i run this play will the guy on the other side guess where to move his to stop it?
I guess you could call this the ulimate live chess game. I never got into chess, to much sitting around and thinking. Football though is a thing of beauty. You are moving around and watching grown men hit each other. A couple of coachs trying to make sure that everyone is where they should be. The right play is used at the right time. Both teams wanting that ulimate result, a win.
Like I said at the begginging how could anything be better than that.
