Link to my column predicting the Super Bowl winner.
Eddie D is IN!
Great column. Stirs up a lot of memories. High Noon is one of my all-time favorite movies. What a cast – besides the two leads, look up the supporting collection of actors on IMBD. Tremendous. I saw Ali-Frazier and Ali-Foreman on pay per view on the giant screen at the Riviera Movie Theater in Chicago. Five bucks. Remember when pay per view was in movie theaters? Peyton isn’t the only one who’s old.
This will not be a close game at all. I’ll be surprised if the difference is 20 points or less. It’s time for the Panthers. Wishing Peyton well in his next ventures….I’m sure he’ll do well.
Typo; should be IMDB.
Lowell – You have a gift like no other in being able to utilize metaphors which do not even percolate in other writer’s minds. It’s like you have this gift to crossover into different realms and pull from the annals of history from a variety of genres to color your columns. Such a great way to paint a picture for your readers, and always an enjoyable read when you delve into these techniques.
Not to minimize how the team’s performed while Manning played for them, I never viewed him as anything for the most part special. Starting with his time at Tenn., Manning’s on and off field calculated manner is an issue for me he is excessively aloof to the discerning eye like a person trying to protect a cover up by keeping people at arms length. At this stage in Manning’s life he presents like an old, cranky, overexposed corporation shill trying to eat a cold bowl of soup with a lot of warm Bud (BTW it is estimated each time Manning mentioned Budweiser post game it was worth 1.6 million dollars to his Budweiser distributorship). Manning needs to close the book on his manufactured and cultivated super ego before the warts become apparent.
