While the Super Bowl half-time entertainment might not, in my opinion, have been THE WORST..... IT WAS DAMN SURE CLOSE.
Of course I might have a somewhat different view if I were some far left Twinkie who didn't think that Lady Gaga possess the class of a stray dog. (And I should probably apologize to every stray dog on earth) I have seen a program where Lady Gaga sang some old movie tunes without dressing up like a pole dancer and she actually has a very good voice. BUT in fairness I must say that hers was NOT THE WORST SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW. Not since I can still recall Janet Jackson and last year's fiasco with Beyonce..... AND a bunch more in between. I actually liked the half time show with Paul McCartney and I must admit that I liked Mick Jagger as well.
Of course, since I couldn't understand the words to the so called songs Lady Gaga was singing, I cannot comment on their content. She might have been talking bad about all of us but I could not make out the lyrics..... nor did I waste much time trying.
All I know for sure is that The National Football League should be ashamed of themselves for pushing that crap onto football fans.
And while I am on the subject, let us look for a moment at the Pre-Game so called entertainment. Some of it started off like it was going to be really patriotic but rapidly turned into typical politically correct horse crap.
Now, let us address The National Anthem. Once again, it was done much better than the normal rendition but apparently Luke Bryan could not resist the urge to try and make it something other than what it is. IT IS AN ANTHEM! And according to Webster an ANTHEM IS: 1) a religious choral son 2) a song of praise or devotion, as to a nation
It IS NOT a Country and Western Song; A Blues Song; A Hip- Hop Song; A Dance Tune; or A Polka. IT IS AN ANTHEM!!!!

Now for the Super Bowl game itself. I thoroughly enjoyed the game and came really close to watching something else until New England scored their first touchdown with about 2 minutes left in the third quarter. I had seen Tom Brady come from behind too many times in big games to not give this game a chance. Of course as you know, they erased a 25 point Falcons' lead and scored 31 unanswered points with the final 6 points in overtime to win their unprecedented 5th Super Bowl Championship.
During the 4th quarter of the game (and I watched the game live and have watched 3 replays of the game) I noticed the difference in the body language and activity on the two sidelines. When Atlanta had the ball, Tom Brady was conferring with this Offensive Coordinator and receivers. When New England had the ball Matt Ryan was pacing the sidelines in front of their bench. Brady looked cool and calm and Ryan looked nervous. I think that experience and coaching came through for New England. Also, for some reason, almost every playoff game, New England will have a player whom you barely have noticed throughout the year step up and play the game of his life. In one of the playoff games it was receiver Chris Hogan (a lacrosse player from Monmouth College) and in the Super Bowl it was James White (running back from Wisconsin). And of course the greatest catch in the game (and there were several great ones from both teams) had to be the catch made by wide Patriot's receiver Julian Edelman ( a former quarterback from Kent State) which defined the word CONCENTRATION. All in all, it was one of my favorite Super Bowls. I have been a New England fan ever since Bill Belichick became their head coach. I realize that there are different eras in professional sports but Belichick stands out with me as his roster has changed pretty dramatically over the years as opposed to the old Green Bay and Cowboy Teams of the past. I also appreciate the way Belichick handles the Sports Media who are Varmints just like the regular media. It also appears as if Mr. Kraft is an owner who allows his Head Coach to DO HIS JOB without a bunch of outside interference.
BUT, Falcons fans should not hang their heads. Atlanta has a really good team and is still very young. I am sure they will be back in the hunt for the next few years.
I was also glad to see former St. Louis Rams/Arizona Cardinal Quarterback Kurt Warner get voted into the NFL Hall of Fame. I always found him to be a class act.
Would SOMEONE PLEASE TELL California Congresswoman Maxine Waters that Russia has not attacked KOREA. And while you are at it, would SOMEONE PLEASE TELL California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi that GEORGE BUSH IS NOT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES nor has he been since January of 2009. When I watched these two goofy squacks making their statements to the press yesterday it became fairly apparent that the voters in those two California Congressional Districts who voted for those two idiots must have a collective room temperature I.Q. Actually I believe that the voters in those two California Districts and the voters in the two Georgia Districts who cast their votes for Hank Johnson and John Lewis should all make appointments with Dr. Phil to see if there is some type of virus that contaminates those 4 Congressional Districts.
I have listened to attorneys who have read the Federal Statutes and have read a copy of the Federal Statute which gives the President of the United States the authority to do exactly what President Donald Trump did in his Executive Order prohibiting persons from specific countries from entering the United States. It is obvious that the President did in fact issue a lawful Executive Order and that the Federal Judge in Washington actually exceeded his authority when he issued the order suspending the President's Executive Order. I also have NO FAITH WHATSOEVER in the 9th Circuit Court to do what is right.
Also, I do not claim to know all there is to know about the new Secretary of Education, Betsy Devos. BUT I do know that if she is opposed by Al Franken and all of the Democrat/Socialist Senators along with Republican Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) that she must be very competent and probably a good choice. If this statement gives you the impression that I have NO USE AT ALL for these three elected officials then you are most perceptive.
Is it just me? Or do most of these elected Democrats/Progressives/Socialists all seem to have the sense of humor of a Salt Water Crocodile?
