Winter 2008 Turning Point?

Well it is February 20th and it is the coldest morning yet this winter at my house. The coldest morning before this morning was -20.8 degrees F. This morning when I left for work it bottomed out at -23.4 degrees F, that is air tempurature by the way not wind chill which is in the -40s. I am hoping this is the last morning that is colder than -15 degrees F. This weekend we are looking for 30s and hopefully a continuing upward trend in temps going into March.

Super Bowl XLII

Last night's super bowl was one of the best I have ever seen. Some years the only thing worth watching are the commercials but this year the game was great. Everyone was expecting the Pats to continue with their out of control scoring. But instead the game was close the whole way through. Even in the 4th quarter I was waiting for the Pats to start rolling, touchdown after touchdown. You have to give most of the credit for the Giants win to the defense. No-one has been able to shut down Brady's offensive as year.

Eli Manning did a great job when it counted on that final drive but without the great Giant's defensive they wouldn't have had a prayer. I think the outcome was perfect, not just because I don't like Tom Brady but I don't think the Pats deserved to win the Super Bowl. Any team that is caught cheating doesn't deserve the Super Bowl or a perfect season, they got what they deserved.

Giants win 17-14

On the commercial note I was not that impressed this year, I mean there were some commercials that were ok but nothing that really blew me away this year. The game action made up for it though.
