Rich_in_Tampa Super Bowl 2009?

Read an article that your town is going to have the game in a couple of years. Are you going? Do you care? Will it affect you? Just curious.

I bet Rich is going to be very popular. We (Phoenix) had it in 1996 and our friends' sister came down. The only car that they were able to rent was a 1970s battleship with red velvet seats that they called the pimpmobile. We get it next year at the same time as the FBR open.

I am inviting all 3000 board members to a party at my house. All are welcome to camp out in my yard, and the beer is on me. Bratwurst, ribs and steaks availble for a $1.00 contribution. I have 2000 seats on the 50 yard line, but you have to take them for free or it affects my gift tax situation adversely. Entertainment: Keb Mo, Huey Lewis and the News, Bonnie Rait and Dianna Kraul.

That assumes the Buccaneers will be playing, of course. C'mon down, y'all.

Interesting that none of the XLI Super Bowls has been played on a participant's home field (although they've come close a couple of times, Rams in the Rose Bowl in '80 and 49'ers in Stanford Stadium in '85).

Could XLIII be the first?

Go Bears!!

Re: Rich_in_Tampa Super Bowl 2009?

OK Prognisticators,
Past returns do not indicate future performance.

I know y'all are out there. It's raining this morning in Miami. This ought to favor Chicago.

But, I'm hoping Peyton gets the Monkey off his back. You don't get to the big game often (ask Dan Marino). Get it while you can.

So... I'm predicting Indy in a close game. Manning will not win it as much as Grossman will lose it. If it's still raining during the game, well... can I revise my prediction at half time?...

And Rich, I'm coming. I gonna invest that dollar in Vanguard's TSM. See if it returns enough for my contribution in 2009.

Still here, just north of Piestewa Peak. Good morning back to you. Ready for the horde of relatives to descend on you next year?

You may find distant relatives. My wife has 55 cousins on her mother's side and about the same number on her father's. We may be seeing them for the first time.

Mooching off other family members is not a hobby but a second business. Some of them will show up, expect to be fed and entertained and then borrow money on the way out. Fortunately, for a variety or reasons, this has slowed down.

Hey Caroline,

You were looking for an adoptive family in another thread. This looks like a family that provides easy marks loving support.

I was thinking more along the lines of the 100+ cousins. A hobby or maybe a pry bar should have been employed a little earlier in the cycle

The more hands around the farm, the better. The bad thing is that when we retire, one of the people from her farm town lives near our property and I have been told that I am going to be helping out at harvest. On the other hand, I will have all the potatoes that I can eat.
