Sup 50 turned out to be a great game, with a great ending for Broncos fans and their families! Von Miller was the MVP on the field and Manning was our MVP at home, where we finished the night by reading Family Huddle together. It’s a gem of a book about football and family, written by the Manning boys and their father Archie.
With all the knucklehead athletes and entertainers taking the spotlight these days, it’s nice to finally have some role models we want our kids to be looking up to. I have been getting pretty tired of trying to explain what went wrong with Miley Cyrus!

Presidential candidates are you paying attention? America was loving Peyton’s great speech at the end of the night about working hard together as a team, not making emotional decisions, going home to kiss your wife and your kids, and being grateful. If Manning does decide to end his NFL career this year to spend more time in a different kind of NFL (National Father League), I hope he considers running for public office. I would love our next president-elect to have brains and character, because it’s a winning combination. Peyton for President!
While I am admittedly not too excited about the presidential race, I do enjoy skimming the news on it and not being completely out of the loop, which you can do here too. What I am excited about, is the revelation from yesterday that Doritos wants us on their marketing team!! For a lot of people, the Super Bowl commercials are the best part of the day, so speaking of being out of the loop, did you realize there was a contest in the works for regular folks like us to submit great commercial material?! I had no idea this was happening until they broadcast the winners last night (which are worth a look here if you missed them), so now it’s “game on.” Without further adieu, here are my proposed commercial ideas for Sup 51:
People Who Plan Events During the Superbowl:
It happened to us this year. I enjoy sailing a lot. In fact, it’s the foundation of this blog space, so when our Fleet Captain planned an important meeting for a National Regatta coming to our club this summer at the same time as Super Bowl 50, it left me completely caught in irons (stunned). Does he not know our country is preparing for an epic sporting event? Does he only acknowledge amateur athletics? Is he hoping no one will show up so that he can make important decisions on his own? Does he realize astronauts are making time to watch this game? No one knows why people do this! The first member to respond simply wrote: “I will be unable to attend as I will be watching the Super Bowl.” The captain replied to all with this message:
So we will see you there!
At least the captain has a sense of humor? Remind me to thank him next year during Super Bowl 51, when Doritos airs the fan-favorite commercial about people planning to do other things during one of our country’s most anticipated events of the year.
The Superstitious Effect
Denver fans, do you remember where you were watching the game when the Broncos won last night? I’m not talking about where you partied at, I am after greater detail than that… what side of the couch were you sitting on, did you have your hand in the Doritos bowl, were you um, occupied in the bathroom? For the superstitious Pro coaches at home, this information is as important to the game as what’s happening in the huddle. People are talking like the win last night belongs to the Broncos Defense, and they did do a pretty good job, but it’s obvious to me that the Denver organization may not realize all that tipped the odds in their favor. I moved around no less than 20 times during the game to maintain the “luck meter,” and so did the rest of the fans at our house. Tip for Panthers fans next year… make a note of where you were and avoid that spot like crazy next year! Doritos, are you listening? My second Super Bowl commercial suggestion, is for a spot on “Where You Are In The Standings, Depends On Where You Sit.” Side note, if you are over 40, you should probably make a note of this somewhere on paper, because there is almost a 100% chance you will not remember where you were at this time next year, and I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want it on my conscience that I caused my team to lose the Super Bowl! Just sayin…
Blog friends thanks for letting me share my ideas for cashing in my chips next year. I invite you to share yours in the comments section, and I’m all ears. In fact, I might just stay put for the whole year to lead the Broncos to their next big win!
