Football and More

img_8592All the talk about and around Houston these days involves the Super Bowl to be played here Sunday.

img_8594From what I see and hear there is something for everyone be it art or live performances.

Houston is a city of bayous designed for drainage, but they are also becoming sources for outdoor activity.  Buffalo Bayou is the largest, and it has recently undergone significant change.

These days folks can hike and bike,  kayak

As I think about it, there’s much that Houston has to offer, but with the emphasis on football some visitors  may not get an opportunity to experience it.  Come Sunday, if I open the windows it just might be possible to hear the noise of the crowd cheering for a favorite team.  For a few thousand dollars I could be there, too, but I’ll be watching on TV with plenty of chips and queso handy.   

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

It’s the Day

OK, I confess, this Sunday afternoon I will be watching the Super Bowl, the whole thing from Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem to the anticipated commercials to the talking heads afterwards analyzing the game.   After all, this game has to last us til August when preseason and college football start up again and the commercials give us something to talk about at coffee break!

It’s the Steelers

against the Packers.

Are you watching? Who are you going to root for?

Close call, but since the Steelers represent the AFC, the same league as the lowly Houston Texans, I guess I’ll have to go with the yellow and black.

i love your comments, so jump right in and share yours
