Super Bowl Lives Up to the Hype!!

Wow - what a game. Although I didn't have any rooting interest in this game (next year Vikings!!), Rob and I were pulling for the Giants (sorry Pennell and Adrian E!). Although I am not a fan of this stadium due to history (41-14 ouch), it is a beautiful place to watch a football game. Tom Petty rocked the house. It was amazing to see how they pull off all of the 'during commercial' break madness to pull off such a production. He played 4 rocking classics and it was the first time I was ever able to see him live.

I don't like to sit still often, so we stood most of the game. Dad and Brian had the 15 yard line seats. Rob and I were up there in the nose bleeds - but it didn't matter. As you can see with some of the photos, the entire game unfolded in front of me. The middle photo is an actual completion by Brady to Welker that set-up there short-lived go ahead touchdown in the 4th.

The kicker was that immediately following the end of the game, we had to bolt for the airport (I had to leave for Holland the next day). So although we didn't get to stick around for the post game speech or ticker tape, it was definitely one of the top experiences of my life. And to boot, the weekend itself was epic in so many ways!

Thanks to Matt Quinn (and Dan Clifford) for hooking up my old man and Brian with the Patriots Team party tickets. Unfortunately, they didn't attend as it didn't appear there would be much to celebrate. And again, dad, what a wonderful weekend. The SB tickets combined with everything else - wow.
