Posts Tagged ‘49ers’

Yes, I know. The Superbowl is in Indianapolis and all the football crazies are descending upon my capital city even as I dictate this. Just in case you were wondering, I consider myself under siege. I instructed my staff to stock up on carrots, blueberries and all my favorite salad greens. My plan is for all of us to stay in and hide. It’s going to be a very long weekend.

In general, I think it is probably best that the San Francisco 49ers did not end up coming here. Oh, I am a fan and I would have loved to have seen them play in the Superbowl, don’t get me wrong, I just don’t think Indiana has the wine list to support even the most basic needs of the San Francisco fans. Beer you say? ¬†Yes, that’s true but we don’t really have the density of micro-breweries necessary either and Lord knows we don’t have enough brie.

As for the Giants, I suppose if I must have an opinion, and, of course that is what you all expect of me, since we in Indianapolis broke our Manning, it’s nice that the emergency back-up Manning has had such a good year. I’m rooting for him.

As far as the Patriots go…*yawn*… … … … zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Opps! *blush* What was I saying? Oh yes, Madonna! Really! The last time she was relevant I wasn’t even born – and I’m TWELVE years old. I suppose she is fine but if they were going to get someone who stopped being topical more than a decade ago all they had to do was look a few miles to the south. I’m sure John Mellencamp could have been talked in to singing Jack & Diane and Small Town one last time before he dies and at least he has been spending his down time trying to keep families from losing their farms.

In the end of the day, Indianapolis will make a massive amount of money. Fans will drink way too much beer and I will laugh, politely (or not) at a few commercials. One really has to wonder, when one observes our collective priorities, if we don’t get the country we deserve. In 2008 132M Americans voted in the Presidential election. Last year 111M watched the Superbowl. That isn’t a margin that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and I am warm and fuzzy all over.
