Have never owned a boat with twins. But there was that one time when these two sisters came out on my charter boat.......

Thanks for verifying what is common knowledge. Although some folks will always live in denial.

Wifey B: Is it also common knowledge to the Seahawk fans that in the old world and often today even these are called buzzards.

I like that. Descending on their prey, the Seattle Buzzards, owned by Buzzard Paul Allen. Really would fit for Marshawn Lynch's press conferences. I haven't heard him yet this week. Wonder what the $100,000 word of the week will be.

Word has it that the Seahawks had to settle for an Augur hawk at the games because a real seahawk aka osprey is way too smart to fall for sitting around on some bozo's arm in a deafening stadium for three or four hours. They'd much rather be out fishing than being on the end of a leash eating overpriced stadium hot dog scraps. The Augur hawk looks enough like an osprey to fool even the people who hired the guy to hold it, let alone the general public, so it works fine for the purpose.

Last time it was "yeah." So I'm betting this time it will be, "nah" or "unh-unh."

Why is it we have to provide platform nests, for Ospreys? Never heard of building a nest for an Eagle!

Because there are programs to encourage the growth of the osprey population. A good example is in the Okanagan River valley in eastern Washington.

You guys debate birds , I am pondering on which football food will be suffice as I watch the SeaHawks in a repeat Superbowl. Not something easily accomplished .

I'm thinking full scale Nachos with the works backed up by some chicken wings. Of course this all goes down better with either Newcastle Brown or Shiner bock. Right now I'm leaning towards Newcastle Brown.

Gotta love these difficult decisions. Oh....I truly feel sorry for the rest of you with crappy football teams

We will be watching from the boat in Acapulco. As to refreshments, I suspect we'll be eating appetizers at the start, having dinner at half time, and dessert in the 4th quarter.

We'll be at a Superbowl party in........

wait for it........






Phoenix, AZ, Home of Superbowl XLIX!

Now if you're wondering why I'd be watching from a home party instead of at the game, it's because the average ticket price is over $3,900 and that equates to an heck of a lot of diesel fuel.

A heck of a lot of anything. And that's not even a great seat. Plus the view from home is very good. It's interesting to see the push in the NFL to make the stadium experience equal the home experience and the NBA is working on the same. I love life sports. I don't love crowds, so I'll take it at home with my friends. Well, not at home this year, on the boat.

It is going to be interesting on super bowl Sunday to be in a country where they have no interest and very few care.

No debate as to the Patriots mascots. A bunch of dudes dressed in colonial garb with muskets. Maybe a few had live rounds, that would explain the defaulted balls.

Go Pats!
