Super Bowl XL

Is it any coincidence that Super Bowl XL ("Extra Large" and/or "40" depending your reading of Roman numerals or clothing sizes) was won by the Pittsburgh Steelers?

What a game! I fell alseep not long thereafter, pleased and exhausted after a long week.

I've been a life-long Steeler fan ever since Bradshaw. I also like the NJ Giants, the Green Bay Packers, and the SF 49ers. Any "good old fashioned" football is nice. I'm not a huge fan, and have no big-screen TV. I listened to the game on the radio and watched the play updates on the gridiron on Yahoo Sports.

It was good because I was also getting caught up on schoolwork. It felt "old school" to be listening to the big game on the radio. I called a college friend from CMU half-way through the game just before half-time to celebrate a particularly awesome reversal for the Steelers. They called them the "Stillers" in Pittsburgh with their regional accent. For whatever reason, I keep seeing Jerry and Ben Stiller in uniform now.

Meanwhile, back to work. I'm going to have great dreams this year. Odd ones, probably, of Ben Stiller in a football jersey with that ludicrous moustache like he wore in Anchorman with Will Ferrell. Just a suggestion: no Will Ferrell movies after midnight, okay?

In more positive dreams—well, not even dreams, but actual walking, waking life, like the American dream—there's a few companies out there that are plugging me into their creative and technical projects. If you have an opportunity, let me know about it. I'd love to help.

More news as it happens!
