Short Super Bowl Sunday Star Wars Post

Today is Super Bowl Sunday.  It's not a National Holiday but it should be.  Today's the day the evil Empire (Pittsburgh Steelers) is going to try control the NFL (once again) and destroy all in their path.  The only thing standing between them and total domination is Luke Skywalker (Aaron Rogers) and his unlikely group of Rebels (Green Bay Packers).  Will this showdown end like The Empire Strikes Back with Aaron Rogers getting his arm cut off and sent away licking his wounds.  Or will it end with Big Ben (Vader, black uni and all) getting carted off the field never to return like in Return of the Jedi? (Then the cheerleaders on both teams could be Ewoks.  That was be awesome! And it's not that I don't like cheerleaders.  But dancing EWOKS on the sidelines??? Priceless.)

I'm not a big fan of either team but I'm going for the Rebel Alliance today.  The Empire has won too many battles in the past so it's time for them to be humbled on this Sunday evening.  And, though, I'm not a big fan of either team, I will be eating a lot of food (what diet?), watching the commercials and generally having a good time.

On a quick side note... If you have Ornithophobia (fear of birds) then you need to stay about 2 cities away from my house.  There are about 1.2 million birds in my front lawn.  They are here to watch the Super Bowl, no doubt.  The joke's on them.  We are not having a Super Bowl party here.  We have one of those... what do you call it? Regular TVs.  There's nothing flat on it and there's nothing High Def about it (unless you squint a certain way).

That is all for today.  There might be a follow up tomorrow that no one will read either.  :) But I will leave you with my favorite Super Bowl commercial.  It started a sensation that has not been matched since.  Enjoy!  And may the force be with you.
