We did it again!

While catching up with the Internet I suddenly had a funny feeling -- did we schedule our Annual Parish Meeting (APM) on Superbowl Sunday? I had a vague recollection that for once I would not be away that Sunday. I looked it up and yes... we did it again!

I haven't noticed that doing so has reduced our turnout at the APM, particularly, though it makes some folks a little more eager to get home and less ready to talk the afternoon away. Memory says in recent years we're usually done sometime between 1 and 2 PM, which is well before the kickoff at 3:28 PST. Since we still have analog TV signals I might watch it to attain my average of one game per year.

I might... say, who's playing, anyway?

    Definitely the Cardinals, and 9 minutes left between Baltimore 14 and Pittsburgh 16.

    I'm at a loss as to who to cheer for...

    Why Baltimore, of course (they are the former Cleveland Browns, and archrivals of Pittsburg).

    Oh well, as usually happens in that matchup, Pittsburg wins.

    (sigh)

    Good point. And, I can "kind of" justify that, having lived in D.C. for two stints totaling 3 years. I can "kind of" claim them as a local team.

    But, if the words "Green" or "Bay" or "Packers" aren't in there, somewhere, I don't get too fired up.

    Party at our house. I promise to provide tasty snacks, no cat pee smell, no crayon on the tv, and likely, no extremely loud rooting for either team! Fun to be had by all! Oh, and beer. Not lots and lots, but enough! :)

    CH, I should have known you were one of *those* people who have an analog tv and will be affected by the changeover to digital.

    Have you gotten one of those gizmos to make the switch possible, yet?

    Better yet, take advantage of this opportunity go without a tv. I have gone without for 30 of my 35 years. It is just one more gadget to take up your time. And besides, Lent is just around the corner, isn't it?!

    Analog TV? It was only three or four years we replaced our failing 1970s model with a more recent one.

    For my part, giving up TV for Lent would be giving up nothing. I don't watch it anymore.
