Super Fun

It was a first for me last night, being in a Winning Sports City. Grand Rapids wasn't big enough to have professional sports (really, the Whitecaps and The Griffins just aren't the same, and you know it), and Detroit was too far away for me to appreciate the win, and that's assuming they ever won, and I don't know that they ever did. (Here's where I get lots of angry emails from Lions, Tigers, and Pistons fans.)

The shouts of triumph literally echoed down the streets of the Financial District last night as Steve and I walked home from CFC's Super City Fellowship Bowl (pics to follow later). The weather was relatively mild, and people meandered home, shouting very articulate things to each other as they passed, like, "WooHOO!" and "Yee!" and "Gogiants!" It was great, and I'm glad I was part of it. Even if I never watched a stitch of Giants football prior to last night.

And, in case you were wondering, here's my vote for the best commercial of the evening.

She's awesome.

PS - Did you notice how a good number of the commercials last night were just plain odd? What's up with badgers in the backseat and walking hearts (as in, the actual organ)? Or how about that terrible Salesgenie ad with the pandas?

Way to go Giants! You ruined the only chance there will ever be to shut us up for good!

In 1979 the Seattle Sonics won the NBA Championship. I totally know what you mean.

Also, it's been a long time since 1979. Now I'm kinda mad about that.

Thanks for the commercial...I didn't watch any of it yesterday but THAT was priceless.

When we lived in Denver they won the superbowl. It was so fun to be part of the fun.
