Super Bowl Brag

  1. I live up the street from Qualcomm, literally! It's at the bottom of the hill and I live on top of that hill. Dad is a "telephone" man and for the past 10 or so years he's worked with the phone people at the stadium - you know those headsets and the bank of phones on the sidelines? That's what my dad does - sets them up, runs the wires, makes sure they're operating correctly etc. He's usually on the "visitor" side - he's met lots of folks...i.e. Adam Sandler (says this like it's no big deal when he tells us his stories).

    My phone rang at about 3:30pm and it was my Dad on his cell phone (he rarely calls me by the way) he says "Can you hear that?" (there was music in the back ground but it was hard to hear clearly) I said, "Yeah, there's music why?" he says (get this) "it's live....Shania is practicing for Sunday - oh look she's climbing up a ladder!"

    I was waiting for him to say...oh, come on down I have a pass for you to get in...but NOOOOOO he was just calling to tease me!!!! The BRAT!!! He knows I'm a country music junkie (sorry Heather). If he dares to call and tell me he's listening/watching the Chicks rehearse I'll strangle his scrawny little neck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok...I'm done bragging about my Daddy's cool job!

    I heard a tape of the DG's rehearsing the National Anthem, and oh man I hope it's better when they do it on the real day. So sour I was wincing and that was just the first few notes - Not the challenging ones

    If that link works right it should be to the Dixie Chick's singing the National Anthem. It is set up to play in a Red Cross donation thingy but you DO NOT have to donate or anything it just closes when it's done playing.

    Well who do you think is going to WIN???

    The BEST team of course!!! Now, don't ask me who that is, cuz we only watch Cleveland Browns and San Diego Chargers (in that order) in my hubby LOVES the Browns (no, he's not from Cleveland and has never lived there). I just don't want the Raiders to win...of course...both teams are pirates (raider, bucs) so either way...????? Whatever!! It's just another excuse to have a party!
