    Super Sunday

    Today is Super Bowl Sunday, and the Seattle Seahawks are taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 40th super bowl. I do not watch the NFL. In fact, I cannot name a single player for either team. However, Super Bowl Sunday does mean something to me. Today I am reminded of Pat Tillman, the defensive back for the Arizona Cardinals who put his football career on hold in order to serve our country. Tillman truly was an American hero. So, as old glory flies over detroit today, and as we cover our hearts and listen to the national anthem, let us remember Pat Tillman, and thank him for his ultimate sacrifice.

    So, I haven't read anything on your blog yet, because I just saw that it exists. Anyway, I'll be linking to it from my blog and I'll read it tomorrow. Right now it's 1:30am, and I just wanted to say hurrah for blogging.

    Hope you're well, my friend!
