Out of the Blue

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The civil rights leader's birthday was actually last week, but it's not really a holiday in the U.S. if it's not on a Monday, so there you go.

The football games were pretty great yesterday, though the officiating was pretty rough. I turned around my horrible regular season for our playoff pool and am in first place at this point, with my pre-playoffs pick matrix resulting in nine winners out of ten games so far. The points escalate with each round in this one, however, so there's still the chance for me to end up as low as tied for fourth out of ten (actually nine, as one player made no picks) if I get the Super Bowl wrong, so I'll keep the champagne on ice for now.

Anyway, grats to the Broncos for winning the Superbowl!

Years ago, in high school, I had a rabid foaming at the mouth Denver fan, who happened to be a science teacher. Most of the time he was a good guy, but anytime the Broncos lost, the next day was literally a book day/studying with no talking whatsoever. And if someone broke this rule, he would flip out, to the point of screaming at the top of his lungs. Before class began and he entered the room, there was talk of "Did the Broncos win last night? Oh fuck..."

I can only imagine where he is now, if he's still alive. But any mention of the Broncos gives me flashbacks.

LOL
His family will probably have medical staff on standby during the game.
Um .. Behind you...
