Come Monday...Arlynda's Super Bowl Parties

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).


My longsuffering wife, Arlynda, was not necessarily a football fan before we were married.  Oh, she would be glad to hear of the [Cabool Bulldogs] and/or the [Missouri Tigers] winning, but she had little desire to actually watch a game.  Hence, one of the reasons why the efforts that she has made the past several years to watch the [Super Bowl] with me are so special.

No, the parties that she puts on are nothing spectacular—certainly not in comparison to some.  For she will usually just fix [nachos] and a few other things like that, but it is amazing just how good it all tastes while watching her become so involved in the game.

It could be argued that she had an added vested interest in the game that was played yesterday evening.  For [The Blind Side] is one of her all-time favorite movies, and [Michael Oher] is a starting offensive lineman for the [Baltimore Ravens].

Oh my, there was something for just about everyone to Super Bowl XLVII—with not the least of these involving the head coaches for both teams.  For [John Harbaugh] is the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, and his younger brother, [Jim], is the head coach of the [San Francisco 49ers].

To be quite honest about it, I do not like Jim Harbaugh much at all.  For he appears to be a jerk in a number of ways, and putting icing on that cake is the fact that he appears to not care a thing about what others think of him.

In all fairness, Jim has done an amazing job of molding the 49ers into a truly great team—with [Vernon Davis] serving as a prime example of that.  For he caught a lot of passes for a lot of yards yesterday evening, and it was just five years ago when he was in danger of being [released] by the team for a number of reasons.

Speaking of stories of redemption, [Ray Lewis], of the Baltimore Ravens, was facing [murder charges] after two men were stabbed to death at a Super Bowl XXXIV party in Atlanta, Georgia in 2000.  Since then, he has become one of the most highly respected (beloved?) players in the game, and the announcement of his retirement after this season was completed surely had much to do with the Baltimore Ravens winning it all—much to the delight of my beloved wife.

Regardless of who wins or loses, I always win when Arlynda throws a Super Bowl party for us.  Of course, that will most definitely not be the case if my beloved [Cowboys] find themselves on the losing end someday, but since they have been doing everything they can to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory lately, it is not looking like I have any reason to be concerned about them even making it that far for several years to come.
