Even if I don't care much about the Super Bowl, I have come to consider the day after as the start of the new year.
People who start New Year's (diet) resolutions on January 1st set themselves up for failure. How can you diet through the college bowl games and the NFL playoffs?
But now is the time to get serious about any resolutions should you be of that mind.

I ended up watching most of the game last night. Very good game and even though I didn't care about either team it kept my interest going. After the first half I did some reading and "watched" the second half with the sound turned down a bit and I had enough cushion in the DVR to fast forward through the commercials.
So I guess today I should get back on the wagon if I want to improve my running. I should throw out the leftover chips and pizza. The sweets were finished off last night. I'll hang on to the rest of the beer though. It is an important food group.
I started the day with a simple 3.04 miles. Rain yesterday followed by a 20° temperature drop left many icy spots to navigate at the park.
Time to turn my attention back to work....
Good morning Dave and thanks for starting us off today.
I watched the game on and off. My husband watched the whole thing. Since it was just the two of us, we made a small serving of the Velveeta/Rotel queso dip. We still have some leftover and will probably eat throughout the week. We both love that stuff! Plus I also made a peanut/pretzel/fritos mixture. I used the spicy fritos and the peanuts were also spicy. It was tasty and we too have some of that left, but will finish it throughout the week.
After our beautiful day yesterday, today we woke up to a cloudy morning. Rain is in the forecast and I hope we get some as it is much needed.
Have a good productive Monday all!
Congrats to your Eagles winning the Super Bowl!

I was thinking about you and Geel. 2 of the happiest Eagle fans. Also thinking of Dottie and Pam for exactly the opposite reason. I'm so glad it was an entertaining game. I hate when I lose interest before halftime.
Can someone please explain to me why rioting was necessary in Philly? If those people want to burn and destroy things, then let them set their own cars on fire and destroy their own homes.
And what is the big deal about the Jenner girl giving birth? Surely people don't think she is a role model.

hmmm.....may have to take a look at the news....I didn't know this was going on.
Tom and Geel seem ok but in my opinion Philadelphia has the most unstable fans. I don't know of any other city that has had to have a jail in their stadium to contain the worst of them.
the link does not have a jail. the vet did, but we do not have one now
Not sure where you saw rioting in Philly
Some street lights were toppled from guys climbing and an awning collapsed outside a restaurant. Tens of thousands in the streets to celebrate pretty much orderly. A gas station was looted, but taht happens even w/o Eagles.

1060 also said there were cars over turned, store front windows broken and graffiti in addition to what you said. Rioting isn't what I heard but there was definitely destruction of property.

I saw that the police tried to coat the street light poles in Crisco to try to deter that behavior.
It is probably undeserved, but the Eagles fans have quite the reputation outside of Philly. The Flyers fans too. I've been to hockey games in Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Dallas but I don't think I would ever go to a game in Philly. At least not with my Sabres' jersey on.
I don't know what Buffalo fans would do if they ever won a Super Bowl or Stanley Cup. And unfortunately, I don't think I will ever learn what they would do.
Enjoy the win. I know I would if I was from there.

In my opinion it's because they are morons. The few that behave in this fashion just give all philadelphians and the burbs a bad name. It's pathetic that they both celebrate a win and mourn a loss with the SAME STINKING BEHAVIOR! It's deplorable.
It's like that just about anywhere when a team wins or loses a championship game. At WVU, people pull their couches on the street and light them on fire after a big game.

I like your way of thinking. Happy New Year to you too!
I think last night may have been the first time I ever watched an entire Super Bowl. It certainly was a different type of game. Since I don't know all the nuances of football I enjoyed it being a game of offense. I'm really happy for the Eagles QB; what a story to go from 2nd string to Super Bowl. I liked the lack of thrown flags and I also don't recall seeing many show-off players.
I saw some of the halftime show - discovered that Justin Timberlake is not too bad. I'd never seen him before. And am I the only one that thought the Tide commercials were about a "Tie Dad"?
Seriously, I thought it was about ties for the first 30 seconds or so.
We have a big snow storm bearing down on us. I put the car in the garage after my Happy Tails gig and don't need to go anywhere until Thursday. The weatherman would have us believe it will take that long to dig out.....
I loved the common theme of kindness and acceptance in the commercials
You would really like this Eagles team. What an incredible bunch of guys. Just great roll models.

I didn't watch the game. Congratulations to the Eagles!
It was cold at 11 windchill. I got up at 4:00 and read for about 35 minutes and just didn't feel like running much in cold temps. I figured I would run shorter than usual. Once I was moving down the road I felt fine and ended up with my weekday 8 miles.
I typed up some fun things but my finger hit the wrong key and my lengthy reply to "those people" vanished. It's just as well, it wasn't nice
Okay. Type up some nice things. It was so fuuuuunnnnnnnnn!
I am sorry but I didn't mean to offend anyone when I used the words "those people." I should have said when fans react that way. And yes I know that other cities also have fans that react the same way also. I just don't understand why winning or losing is an excuse to destroy property.
