EVERYBODY knows, by now, the Saints won the Super Bowl yesterday. I am pleased by the result - the Colts, beaten yesterday, are the ones who beat the Bears in the Super Bowl three years ago.
I haven't forgotten.
I am re-writing the Saturday episode of Sarah. It seems the change brought on by the death of one of the characters has thrown me off a bit. I am not happy with the last episode - and although it's still up, it will remain so only until this weekend when it will be replaced.
Jim Caldwell, coach of the Colts, is a classy man.
The shot of Drew Brees, holding his son, with tears in his eyes, was very emotional. And cool.
Pitchers and Catchers report in 10 days. Spring training. Baseball. Hot dogs. Apple pie and Chevrolet. Now - I wonder how long it will take for the Cubs to break my heart and take all the joy (and interest) out of the season for me.
It's not that I don't believe - and it's not that I don't WANT - but I was born in 1945, the last time the Cubs played in a World Series. I went to my first Cubs game when I wasn't old enough to sit on a seat by myself. I sat on my Dad's lap. I saw Hank Sauer hit home runs in Wrigley. I was there when the rookie Ernie Banks first played for the Cubs in September of 1953. I saw, for years, one of the best defensive infields ever to play baseball together - Santo, Kessinger, Beckert and Banks. I have lived and died with this team for all of my life. Someday ....
I will root for the White Sox as long as they're not playing the Cubs.
And of course, the thing that comes next, after Pitchers and Catchers and the start of Spring training - is GOLF!!! Time to start playing GOLF!!! oOr playing AT it, actually - I'm not sure you can call what I do "Playing Golf".
