Paradey goodness
Ah, it's hard not to be a sports fan living in Boston this year. :D We get a parade. I get to see it. Yay! :D

Sorry, that was a pointless post, so I'll just leave it at

Congrats, Patriots!

Also, hey, Eagles, especially T.O.--awesome game!

Oh, and ETA: Thank you, Paul McCartney. Imagine--a halftime show consisting of a talented guy singing and playing the piano and guitar. No wardrobe malfunctions.

And it was Paul McCartney. I don't care how old that man gets, he is always going to be easy on the eyes as well as the ears.

Sigh, I will be gracious in defeat, I will be gracious in defeat.

Seriously, enjoy the parade. Awesome game and Dillon, wow, he is one hell of a football player.

The former Massachusettes resident is well pleased. (Not that I knew the Super Bowl was today until around 6, or even who was playing..)

Aha - now the non American understands why LJ has been so quiet... massive sporting event, eh?

That whole wardrobe malfuntion thing has me laughing - if it had happened here, everyone would have had a good laugh, and forgotten about it two days later. Nobody would have been up in arms about it. As a matter of fact, it did happen here when Miss World stood on her skirt on the walkway and we were all watching her little red g-string. Everyone laughed and forgot about it two days later.

*sobs for Philly*

See, I knew the Pats were going to win, of course. But the stupid Eagles had to go and give me hope, by keeping it so close.

It was really weird rooting against the Patriots, btw. I was so excited when they won their first two Superbowls, because I'm a NE girl, in Connecticut. But Philadelphia's kind of my mother-city, the city of my summers, of cheap-seat Phillies games, and my "Iggles." Man, I really wanted them to win.

So, like I said, I found myself grumbling against the Pats. It was kind of funny: I got into a grumbling fight with another partygoer, trying to convince them they were the MA Pats, not for all of New England. "Remember when they were going to move here? We were going to build them a shiny new stadium, but noooo, they were too good for Connecticut. They just used us to get a better stadium deal from Mass! Aren't we all mad at them?" But he was all, "yeah, you must have been away at college when we all got over that."

And you know, I think I must be a horribly bitter sports fan. :) On the one hand, I have Philly, who hasn't won any championship in any major sport in a record number of years, and on the other hand I have Connecticut. I went to a Whalers game once. Two days later, they announced they were moving the team to North Carolina.

Oh well. Congratulations, Patriots. :)

My mother and I had the following telephone conversation last night:

Mom: *tells me about how my younger sister is hosting a Superbowl party*
Me: *expresses genereal level of pleased over not watching the Superbowl*
Mom: Paul McCartney is doing the half-time show! I'm looking forward to that part.
Me: At least you probably don't have to worry about him baring his breasts.
Mom: No, but I'm kind of hoping his pants will fall off...

Although I did not see the Superbowl, I agree agree agree that Paul McCartney will always be fabulous. My mother agrees, too. :)

Someone was complaining on the AOL boards about how boring the halftime show was. :eyeroll:

Me, I was just thankful to be back to a basic, you know, show.

Re: Musicians Playing Instruments

Hey, at least on AI, they make them sing on their own. In the age of Ashlee Simpson, AI is big step up!

He did "Drive My Car," "Live and Let Die," a third song which I'm totally blanking on at the moment, and "Hey, Jude." On the Na-na-nas, he had the audience do the singing for him.
