Mixing of Terms

Last night we had just gotten back from grocery shopping and Ainsley looks at the clock and says "hey, it's 9:30". I look at the clock and sure enough she is right. I asked "How did you know that?". Her reply "I guess I am just smart". I check with Christy and she hadn't told her what time it was, so we are leaning towards the genius angle again. Then she follows that up with "hmmm, it is about a 1/4 inch to 10:30". I guess we will have to reevaluate her time telling skills...

Super Bowl Bummer

Living in the Northwest we were pretty excited and anxious for yesterday's Super Bowl. Of course the outcome wasn't what we expected or wanted I have taken some solace in the articles stating what all of us around here feel: the officiating costs us the game.

I will admit, the Seahawks made their share of mistakes, some mental errors and so forth, and they had some key injuries. However, as they said during post game press, injuries are no excuse, people need to step up in a game like that. Mistakes aside, I really feel like they outplayed the Steelers , they seemed to move the ball with relative ease most of the game and minus a play or two, handled the Steelers offense will efficiency as well.

Nonetheless we will turn our collective attention and wait with bated breath for the signing of Alexander and then look forward to the inevitable holiday season Super Bowl rematch with Pitt. next year.

Articles like these are acting like a soothing salve for the stinging pain of the loss.

On a more positive note, I am glad to see some like Jerome Bettis get his title. Congrats on that.

Update:
More oitment for us: "Seattle fans have a right to feel sick. Their team just suffered the most unjust loss in Super Bowl history."
