Here we are, Super Bowl Sunday, Steelers versus Cardinals, about 20 minutes before kickoff. The pre-game hype is reaching it’s apex. The so-called experts have weighed in on their predictions (NBC is split, 5 for the Steelers, 5 for the Cardinals).
Around these parts, the snacks are being eaten and the man soda is being chugged. J2 and Ameer are in the house, as well as John and Judy. Emma, Fehmeen, and Farah will make an appearance later on around 5 pm.
As for me, I’m going to attempt to blog throughout the game, keeping you abreast on my status in the pool that I’m participating in as well as commenting on everything else.
