    :pccoffee: :wave: sixtys/wannabes/footballers. I'm with @ImpulseRed008 personally -- can't wait for all of the noise to subside and the smoke to clear. I don't give a tinkers' damn about the game.

    The Georgia trip was great fun, and I got to burn off a bunch of my craving for roadtripping. Discovered just how good the brakes are on the Porsche when I crested a rise in George Washington National Forest one morning to discover papa deer standing in the middle of the road! The car stopped dead before my brain fully processed that I had hit the brakes. It didn't even skid. Mama and fawn followed dad across the road, and I was safely -- and luckily -- underway once more. Whew. The only closer encounters I've had with bambis have been hits.

    This house is located just off a private airstrip about 5 miles from our house.

    A little something every chance we get.
    :notsure: Good Morning Porch Pals & Sue! Well, lots of rumblings and threats yesterday and last night, but all told we ended up with a tenth. Better than a poke in the eye, with a sharp stick. Class was very "pilot-centric"; tons of very specific stuff that would be useful if I ever piloted a Beech 18 (C-45). One of only 2 non-pilots in there - didn't think I'd do to well on the test. But then, they didn't hand out enough, and I got shorted. I left to try and find a copy, but that was all that was printed. So I come back to sit through it - it's "class answer & discuss", and I shouted out several answers and found I could have easily passed the rest. Oh well, I have my own little room with a big ugly motor.
    Quick errand early, do nothing and watch the game. I'm wearing a red shirt!

    Happy "big game" day!
    Rooting for the Niners for two reasons. The QB is solid in his beliefs, and the GM is a former Buccaneer. John Lynch...ohhhhh man I witnessed his ferocity first hand in the stands of the Sombrero and Ray Jay. Good man, too!

    Since I was born and raised in the Bay Areae I’m a 49er guy. I’m not enthusiastic and in reality I don’t really follow pro sports much anymore, or at least very little. (I still like watching hockey especially in person). Too many of the players in various pro sports have become wealthy aholes. The teams themselves and management have become aholes too. I’ll leave it up to you as to why I think they are aholes.
    When I was a young boy I use to go see the Oakland Raiders in person before the Oakland coliseum was built. They played at Laney junior college football field in Oakland for a couple years. Tickets were cheap, the players were friendly and approachable. Use to be able to go up to the players before and after games, talk to them and get autographes. The games were fun and not as technical. The players weren’t aloof. I remember meeting numerous players but my 2 favorites were Ben Davidson and Tom Keating and getting autographs. It was one of the highlights of my life. The players and organizations have completely changed now a days and not for the good.
    So I’ll watch some of the superbowl but not with great enthusiasm like I once had. I actually like college sports better than pro and watch them occasionally.
    Happy Sunday all, enjoy the game.

    I agree the superbowl commercials are entertaining. I’ve seen the Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdales and the Labrador retriever they will be showing during the game. It is awesome

    Afternoon all:

    Chiefs fan here, but may the best team win without the other one getting the benefit of missed or bad penalties that affect the outcome of the game.
    Just saw where over 1000 private jets have flown into the 4 airports near Los Vegas for the SB, hope Taylor Swift can find a parking spot for hers when she gets there! :laughing:

    I have a tendency to agree, pro sports don't seem like that it's about the game to make it friendly to the fans anymore. I still enjoy highschool and college but college is being changed due to the portal.

    The last time I watched a super bowl (for the commercials) I didn't even know half of the companies advertising.

    I'm not a fan for many reasons... but the main one is that tax money goes to build stadiums.

    @Travlr I agree, we have teams owned by billionaires that have millionaires playing in a stadium supported by taxs that people who can attend pay huge prices for concessions and tickets. The hype and the untold back ground has more support from taxs.

    Them stadiums sure do generate a lot revenue and jobs. A lot of downtown redevelopment projects revolve around a new/existing stadium

    There are pros and cons around stadium development. But ultimately it is the management of the venue to keep it operational for that to work.

    That was true at one time. A stadium usually has huge cost overruns and continuous needs for updates, and they only last an average of 30 years or so. The benefits to a local economy are usually a zero sum game with the downsides honestly evaluated. Usually the real impetus for new stadiums are from people that need an ego boost and the team faithful aren't hard to convince. The rest of the taxpayers get pushed aside as politicians get involved.
