Waiting for Spring

image

Patiently we wait through the cold.
Some days better than others.
The snows a blanket of white.
Waiting through the rain delays.
A longing lingers in our minds.
To see the perfect green grass,
under a bright sky of forever blue.
A small white sphere stitched in red,
captures our attention and respect.
As we wait for spring training,
and a loud voice that shouts
“Play ball!”

5 Reasons I like the Super Bowl!

SeahawksWith less than 24 hours before kickoff to Super Bowl #49 (yea, I didn’t do the Roman numerals thing cause it was too much trouble to figure it out and I am too lazy to look it up), I give you my top 5 reasons to like the Super Bowl from least important to most important.  So, to not keep you waiting and guessing, here we go!

  1. The Seahawks are playing in back to back Super Bowl’s, and yes I live in Washington so you know who I am rooting for. Go Hawks!
  2. Football is an okay sport, and watching with a group of friends is fun especially if a team you like is playing. Go Hawks!
  3. The Super Bowl means football season is almost over and too much of a good thing is not necessarily a good thing. Go Hawks!
  4. The end of football season means spring is just around the corner and … well I think you probably know what that means, warmer weather! Go Dodgers! Go Mariners!
  5. Yep, that’s right!  #1 reason I like the Super Bowl is that Spring Training and finally after a long winter, Baseball season is almost here!!! Go Dodgers! Go Mariners!
