Good 34º very foggy morning. Lots or rain all day yesterday. My neighbor Frank braved the elements and on a tractor smoothed out the gravel he had put on our road. We got just over 1/2" (.58") Precipitation supposed to taper off until tomorrow.
Let the Chinese New Year of the Dragon begin!!
In regards to yesterday's football games....
Then I must address Steven Tyler (of old Arrowsmith fame) who sang the National Anthem. Well, that was NOT singing!
It will be renamed The Star Mangled Banner!
When the camera panned to Tom Brady, hand over heart, he had that look of disgust, same thoughts going though my mind! WHO PICKS THESE IDIOTS??????
Ok, so I have to say the game was the most exhausting one I have taken part in!!! I was screaming and yelling and praying and prancing.... OMG I was tired when my Patriots finally won it at 23-20 over the Ravens! AND that last kick for a field goal made by the Ravens.... I made it go to the side. Really! It was me. I was pointing and pointing to the side and screaming! LOL>
This whole last season of the Patriots was dedicated to team owner Mr. Robert Kraft's late wife, Myra, who died from cancer. He was rarely ever seen without her at his side.
The San Francisco 49ers and the NY Giants game was another nail biter. Close! OMG. Yes, back and forth to an overtime field goal by the Giants to win 20-17. Sorry Jeannie! :o(
