Well, the Superbowl weekend is finally here! It's time for the big game where one of the most common phrases across America is clearly going to be,
could I ask you to
Yes Americans all across the country will be getting jammed up from the second they wake up
until the game finally comes to an end.
I don't really get all that fired up for Superbowl Sunday, unless of course my Packers are playing. For those of you that didn't know, I'm a huge
But alas, my Pack didn't make the big game again this year. Leaving me less enthused about
this weekend, than I probably should be.
OH right! I should let the readers across the pond know that this is American
we're talking about here.
Not the game of Footy
you're more accustomed to watching.
Of course there are kickers in the
just not of the same quality or style as the better players in "proper" Football,
that you may be used to.
There's also a lot more officials on the playing field than in Footy, in an effort to get the plays called correctly. I think the Americans call them
Zebras, because of the black and white striped uniforms they wear.
Like you Footy fans, I don't care what the hell they're called. As long as they don't get in the way of the game, and make the right call each and every single time. To me, nothing can ruin any special sporting event like

I mean, what does it really take to stand behind a
tough bunch of dudes called
The Front Line and follow the coaches
after all, right?
Well I'll tell you what, I don't think this Sunday's Superbowl is going to come down to the two Quarterback's that are playing in the game. They'll of course be a part of the game as always, but I think the real key to winning this Superbowl game will be at a very key position that isn't the Quarterback.
I think it's going to come down to which team has the best
Nose Tackle on the field for the entire game.
That's a critical position in big games in my humble opinion and therefore, I give the edge to the Colts this Sunday.
There you have it. That's my pick for Superbowl Sunday now if you'll excuse me, Coach tells me that I need to hit
Enjoy the game everyone and on this Frantic Friday going into Superbowl Sunday, ask yourself this
for some Football!
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
