Super Bowl Sunday

2009-02-01 23:21:13.000 – Marty,  Summit Cat

Hey Marty-cat here to bring up an update on Superbowl Sunday! I felt a bit deserted at first tonight as everyone I have seen all week left me to go visit Chris over at State Park. He has a TV now with digital service. I eventually tracked down my people and set to watching the game, hoping the Cardinals would lose. No, it’s not because Brian is from PA and I am siding with him. It’s just that cardinals are so tasty! We mainly only see ravens up here, and besides the fact they are larger than I am, I feel a certain brotherhood with them. Them ruling the sky and I the mountain (if you remember, I chased a fox away this summer!) Anyway, tonight was a regression in technology. We started with great digital TV service for the first half of the game, but then the fog cleared and away went our signal. We ventured upstairs to stream it on a computer over the Internet, but the last 2 minutes of the game the streaming failed to work. To a text-based play-by-play it was. All is well though, for I can now go to sleep happily dreaming of delicious red birds.


Marty,  Summit Cat
