15 Minutes of Glory

So the Superbowl was last night. I would just like to say that for the record the first 15 minutes were absolutely spectacular. We were at Tom and Elaine's house. The pre-game vibe in the house was over the top. Elaine and I were in the kitchen, they guys were in their Bears garb. Rob was armed with his 5 Bears shirts, his Bears sleep pants on, Bears cap sitting on the top of his head. In one hand a bag of chips, the other some queso, the anticipation built to the extreme, over the top. I thought Derek, my 10 year old son was going to explode. The moment had come, the Colts kick off, the Bears catch the ball, and low and behold the run starts, the screaming at our house was over the top. Derek was jumping up and down, his face a bright shade of red, his screams of support, his shouts of glee, and in this first run a pinnacle was reached, the glory of the Bears shown brightly. We couldn't believe what we were seeing, the game just started and the Bears had already scored a touchdown! Then the commercial with the mouse in it happened, the two pet shop animals trying to get the mouse to work...Derek laughed so hard...I think fireworks were exploding from the house on Willis Street. Derek says after he regains his composure, a super cool touch down and then a funny commercial smushing a mouse, I think I better stop eating...I feel like I am going to throw up. (exact wording used, I could have used a less sickening term, but the boy is only 10, and it wouldn't have seemed as real if I would have said regurgitate) Well I think we should have turned off the television after the first quarter because by the end of the night we were all feeling a little queasy. But that first 15 minutes....it was absolutely spectacular!
Go Cubs!
