Finally, it's my Parting Shot for some Monday Musings...
It's been several years since I've watched a Super Bowl game from beginning to end...half-time show included...and I'm happy to say that the 52nd edition of the combined N-F-L-A-F-L title game was worth every second of the time invested. There was offence galore, great plays, a fabulous half-time performance by Justin Timberlake and an upset. What more could you want?!
The biggest upset was Nick Foles out-gunning, out-receiving and out-scoring Tom Brady. Yes, I said out-receiving...and I love trick plays...pro football needs more of them and should be applauded for that, not less of them or else be belittled!
My wife, the non-sports fan, will tell everyone that she was cheering for the underdog Eagles...and predicted the Tom Brady fumble just before it happened in the late stages of the game. That much I will verify for you!
So, Duron Carter was arrested Thursday for marijuana possession at the Saskatoon airport. Why do I get the feeling that RiderNation will forgive the gregarious guy, with the ever-present smile, because he's the best and most recognizable Saskatchewan Roughrider player? And, because he has re-signed with the Green and White and wants to be a Rider!
