Super Bowl Sunday, the latest edition for 2015, is over. The game, the commercials and the halftime show are now open for debate and social media postings that will probably pressure test a great number of internet servers! And the workplace will lose another 37 minutes, on average, of work time to inane comments on the above.
The “spectacle of sport” was just that, a spectacle. This annual event has captivated America for almost fifty years. The rest of the world went on. TheOldMan has lived long enough to see almost everyone of the Super Bowl extravaganzas. (The conflict in Vietnam interrupted what would have been a perfect record.) There have been great games, boring games and games worth forgetting.
What is constant is the commitment to our patriotism. TheOldMan has often commented that the pre game show of patriotism is always appreciated.Hopefully that demonstartion of our committment to freeddom irritates the crap out of those people who detest our way of life.
What matters the most; what matters to almost every fan, casual or fanatic is that we all get to watch the game secure in the knowledge that American servicemen and servicewomen are on guard, protecting all of us.
In addition law enforcement contibuted extraordinary effort on game day.
TheOldManSays We thank all who made the security of the game their responsibility.
