The Super Bowl is one of those events that seems to gather a lot of people around the TV, whether we are sports fans or not. Then, the networks tell us that people stay up late afterward. (My excuse to post Eli’s picture for the “umpteenth” time. Plus, he did look a little tired in that suite last night!)
Which is to say, I’m guessing that you want a short blog today… if you stayed up late. Of course, it’s kinda like Jimmy cracked corn and I don’t care, and then someone obviously cared because they wrote a song about it. So, with that in mind, here’s a quickie blog. Hopefully this is like Jimmy cracking that corn.
In line with whether anyone really believes that there is an insurance company that really treats you like a good neighbor, here are some mysteries of life from “Ten Mysteries of Life” that includes some with a sports bend to them:
1. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, would we know?
2. Why are bleachers called “stands” when they are made for sitting?
3. Why do we sing “take me out to the ballgame” when we are already there?
4. Why is abbreviated such a long word?
5. Why is it that when someone tells you that there are over a billion stars in the universe, you believe them, but if there is a ‘wet paint’ sign somewhere, you have to touch it to make sure?
6. Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?
Ok…. I will stop! It’s taking too much energy. So glad Peyton Manning got his second Super Bowl ring! Time for more coffee!
