I am still hurting over the super bowl. My Cardinals lost. It ain't fair. They were the better team. If not for that interception in the first half, I believe they would have won going away. No disrespect intended for you Steeler fans but, you musy admit. Cardinals had a better offense. Best receiver in the league. Their defense? Well,,,,. But still, they were the better team. No one gave them a chance. I wish that Chris Collinsworth had not put the bad luck on them by choosing them to win. He always picks the losers. That is why they lost you know. It was his fault. He put the whammy on them. I would appreciate it if Chris would not choose them to win anymore so they might have a chance to win. Still, Cardinals were the better team. Maybe next year. hope Chris Collinsworth retires by then.

@Elmud,
I could never understand how you colonists got so carried away with a game of rounders..A good beach game or in a freshly mowed meadow but in a stadium..:perplexed:

Its just an escape thing Xris. A little entertainment every now and then to take the mind off of all the serious matters in life. Sports, music, movies every now and then. In the case of the Super bowl, it was good to see an underdog exceed everyones expectations like the Cardinals did. Just wish they could have won one more time.

@Elmud,
Defenses win championships, Elmud.

I was pulling for the Cardinals, too, but that age old football wisdom can't be ignored.

By the way Xris, we are not all colonists. My folks came from Ireland many years later.

I'm still hurting over the 1986 World Series, the 1999 divisional series, and the 2003 ALCS, even though my Red Sox have won the World Series twice since then.

The Superbowl last year hurt as well. Ouch. Eli Manning ... ugh.

@Elmud,
I am still sad about Super Bowl XVI and XXIII which my beloved Bengals lost to the 49ers (well I was too young to remember the one in 1981). The thing that makes it worse is I have had to watch dismal football since 1990, and the one year that they were actually good, Carson Palmer had his knee blown out on one of the first plays of the Wild Card game against the Steelers.

@xris,
Oh, and Xris, football has nothing to do with rounders. You're thinking about baseball, and in that sense, I agree. It's a fun game to play with some friends, but in a stadium? No way. Football, on the other hand, deserves... no, demands a stadium.

Sorry my ignorance of American sport is only to obvious.Thanks for the lesson. Xris

Do you know when they left Ireland, they could have been escaping the famine , like my Irish family.My family came from Cork, but no chance of finding exactly where. So many left Ireland in the 18 and 19c,it was us damned English landlords.Ireland is a wonderful place, i did have many friends there before the recent troubles, they could not be known to have served in the British army.The IRA would have purged them or made their life hell.

I don't really know Xris. that may have been the case but, I'm just guessing. I recall watching the movie Far and Away with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. don't know how accurate the movie was but what struck me was how badly those Irish Immigrants were treated. Anyway, as the movie goes, some traveled to the southern US ,Oklahoma in particular , for an opportunity to settle on free land. Anyone who watched the movie knows the particulars, or anyone who has studied the history of this. Maybe my descendants were a part of this generation but, like i say, i don't really know. Be good to know though.

By the way. My grandfather who I never met, always regarded profanity as something that was forbidden to be used around women. He called it, "Black Guarding". are you familiar with that expression?
