It's Been a While

Hello everyone. I am alive, just busy and keeping a free mind.

Oh, so you really haven't had anything to say lately...

Correct! But, finally, I do.

Can it really be all that good after a one week lag? Aren't you rusty?

I dunno. You be the judge.

This is a football post.
And an Idiot of the Week post.
And a political post.
And a future-telling post.
All in one.

I predict the big winner in this year's Super Bowl will be...oh, you probably want to know who is playing. (Or maybe you don't, but too bad.) The Indianapolis Colts will play the Chicago Bears on the biggest advertising day of the year, er, in the biggest football game of the year. The Colts are coached by Tony Dungy, and da Bears are coached by Lovie Smith. Both gentlemen are very good coaches, and have the talent necessary to win it all.

Now that you know who is playing, let's get back to my prediction. Vegas hasn't seen a prediction like this, ever. There is no over/under on it, at least as I know. There is no point spread. I dunno if you can even wager on it in any way, shape or form.

The winner of the Super Bowl will be...race. Yes, black vs. white. African-American vs. everyone else on the football field. Why? Because, for the first time in Super Bowl history, a black head coach made it to the Super Bowl. Matter of fact, both teams are led by black head coaches.

Who cares? Color aside, these coaches excel at what they do. They deserve to receive accolades for their accomplishments, not because USA Today, Time, Newsweek, and all the other socio-politico folios - note, I dare not call them news media - see their color. These gentlemen deserve to be recognized for getting their teams to the biggest game of the year, if not to the biggest game of most of their players' lives.

So, the Idiot of the Week Award, granted two weeks in advance of the Super Bowl, goes to...the media. They're already at it, as foolish as it is.

I'm baaa-aaack. :-)

If you want to predict a team though, you'd be safe saying Da' Bears will win.

Sir N.,

Nice photo. :-)

Much to the chagrin, I'm sure, of several of my blog readers, I told Mrs. Quipper last night that I really didn't care who wins the Super Bowl this year. Da Bears already have a title, and I could care less if Manning ever got a ring.

Maybe that's just my Cleveland sports envy shining through.

I don't care most years. Sometimes I'm rooting against somebody. But not this year. Go Bears.

And do the Colts have a title? They did win Super Bowl V, but when they were still in Baltimore. Does a team start over when they leave a city? What's the ruling on that? I say they have to start over.

Indianapolis does not have a football title. I go by the city more than I go by the team.
