I just love the picture here! Too. Darn. Cool.

And yes, you bet your life I’m going to watch the Superbowl. These past few years I’ve not been able to, due to opera. This year opera rehearsal is at 7:30 PM, and I think I’ll get in a good amount, if not all (?), of the game. It used to be a family tradition; we’d all sit around and yak through the game, but silence was required during commercials. Yeah, we are silly that way.
