I didn’t have a bet on the Superbowl but I thought it was a great game.

Maybe now, after that amazing end zone catch to win the game, maybe people will stop talking about Dwight Clark’s “The Catch” that beat the Dallas Cowboys. That’s probably the most often-aired football highlight of all time but yesterday’s catch was awesome!

This 49er fan will NEVER stop talking about “the catch”.

That was a great game yesterday and fans of both teams should be very proud of the way their teams played.

As long as someone brought up the game….

Am I the only one who was flabbergasted that there was no booth review called on Warner’s “fumble” at the end?

It was a great game for sure, but I really thought that play deserved a closer look. Even it was determined to be a fumble, my point is that it was definitely close enough to warrant a review.

Yea, it looked funny to me, too – hard to tell whether he had any control when the arm was going forward but it was vey close. But I don’t think they review in the last 2 min.

No, the coaches can’t call for a review in the last two minutes, but the replay official upstairs in the booth is supposed to stop play and call for a review on close plays inside of two minutes.

I’m surprised he is still running around at his age – I saw him back in the 80’s when he would jump up on speakers like he was really cranked!

Great show though – I think they are running his NTC concert on VH1 – still great!

I didn’t have a dog in the race….... but I thought there were several questionable calls by the refs. That’s the NFL for you.

Aa a Steeler fan I was happy with the final outcome, but I must give Warner and the entire Cardinal team credit for their never say die attitude. They almost pulled it off. But I guess the Steelers had some never-say-die of their own.

You’re right DocK. The best team won for sure. Can’t really complain. Two good superbowls in a row.

I’m not a fan of either but I went for the Steelers because there’s nothing exciting about a 10-7 Super Bowl winner. I also thought that the commercials weren’t as good as previous years. But I guess any reason to throw back a few beers and eat until I reach another pant size is a good thing. 2009 is the Chief’s year, I can feel it!

I was surprised too that there was no booth review of Warners supposed fumble. It was very close.

I thought this would be a good post for this thread…....

In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a new voice came over the loud speaker asking for a carry out at register 4. Kurtis was almost finished, wanted to get some fresh air, and decided to answer the call. As he approached the check-out stand a distant smile caught his eye. The new check-out girl was beautiful. She was an older woman (maybe 26 and he was only 22) and he fell in love.
Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to find out her name. She came into the break room, smiled softly at him, took her card and punched out, and then left. He looked at her card … BRENDA.
He walked out only to see her start walking up the road.
Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket and offered her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and she accepted. When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again, outside of work. She simply
said it wasn’t possible. He pressed and she explained she had two children and she couldn’t afford a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she accepted his offer for a date for the following Saturday.
That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter had called and canceled, to which Kurtis simply said, “Well, let’s take the kids with us.” She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again not taking no for an answer, he pressed.
Finally Brenda brought him inside to meet her children. She had an older daughter who was just as cute as a bug, Kurtis thought. Then Brenda brought out her son in a wheelchair. He was born a paraplegic with Down syndrome.
Kurtis asked Brenda, “I still don’t understand why the kids can’t come with us?” Brenda was amazed. Most men would run away from a woman with two kids, especially if one had disabilities, just like her first husband and father
of her children had done. Kurtis was not ordinary. He had a different mindset.
That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner and the movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take care of him. When he needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his wheelchair, took him and brought him back. The kids loved Kurtis. At the end of the evening,
Brenda knew this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of her life with. A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children. Since then they have added two more kids.
So what happened to Kurtis, the stock boy and Brenda, the check-out girl?
Well, Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner now live in Arizona , where he is currently employed as the quarterback of the National Football League Arizona Cardinals and has his team in the Super Bowl. Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed that he was not an ordinary person.
It should be noted that he also quarterbacked the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. He has also been the NLF’s Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player.
AND NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY:
Today at church our minister mentioned that when Kurt, his wife, and children go out to eat, he has one of his children pick out a family eating at the restaurant. Kurt then tells the wait staff he is picking up the tab for that family’s dinner annonimously. He remembers the days he was working nights in the grocery store and feeding his family on food stamps.
