You may have heard, but there's going to be some new commercials coming on television tomorrow night. Rumor has it Fox will break them up with a football game. I'm not one to miss commercial, so I'll endure the football game.
As the title mentioned, I'll be rooting for the underdogs. Here are some of the underdogs I will support:
- A quarterback who was drafted in the 6th round (Tom Brady).
- A receiver who had to fight his way just to make the college team and went undrafted in the pros (Wes Welker - must read for sports fans)
- A defensive player who was undrafted and unwanted in Pittsburgh (Mike Vrabel)
- An undrafted professional wrestler (Stephen Neal)
- An 8th round draft pick possibly playing his last game after a career of star performance at offense, defense, and special team (Troy Brown).
One prediction from me, I don't think the game will be as close as Vegas expects... and Vegas doesn't expect it to be that close.
I'll finish this introduction by expressing what I hope will be my biggest disappointment of the week. Costco sells ready-bake pizzas in three varieties - pepperoni, meat lovers, and margarita (a weird tomato slice and Parmesan cheese topping). I'm sure all are wonderful. However, you need to offer a plain cheese pizza if you are planning a party.
