Super Sunday

Surprise! I like football. Most folks don't see this in me, but I'm known to yell at the players to run faster, "go, go, go" and get way too happy about the big plays. (Just try to imagine me leaping up with excitement. See? I even surprise myself.) Harrison's 100-yard interception return for a touchdown tonight? That made history. Holmes winning TD catch with only 35 seconds left? That got him MVP. Roethlisberger heading the 78-yard drive enabling the win? Ben was back.

For those who did not watch and have no idea what I am talking about, the Steelers won the Super Bowl, 27 to 23. They almost didn't make it and had to work for their win. It was an exciting game with a fabulous finish. They are the first team in history to hold the Lombardi Trophy six times.

So there you have it. Now you know how I spend my Sunday evenings, at least when the Steelers are playing. To save some face, I do knit or dust during commercials. I spend half-time organizing. Tonight I got to the laundry shelves. =)

What a great game!! We watched the whole thing, despite the time difference. I get way too excited as well, which is a problem when it's 3 AM and we have sleeping neighbors. :) I would have called you guys after the game if I knew you were up watching it!!

P.S. The word for the verification thing right now is "dearima," which I think is funny because "ima" is Hebrew for "mom." :)
