By now everyone who cares about football knows the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Superbowl. Ravens 34 SF 49ers 31. It looked like it would be a rout by the Ravens but SF made a super comeback and almost pulled it out. There was an obvious holding by a Raven at the end of the game that was not called. If called, the 49ers would have gotten 4 downs inside the 5 yard line to score. Once again, I didn't really care about the winner of the game so there wasn't a big disappointment on my part. Wait until next year.
They had a power outage during the game and the stadium was in complete darkness for a while. Then they slowly brought the power back on and the lights warmed up enough to play again. The interesting thing about this is the the same thing happened to the 49ers in Pittsburgh a few years ago. What are the odds of that happening?
Monday is the big day for my knee replacement surgery and I have to be at the hospital by 11 am and the operation is scheduled for 1 pm. I will be glad to get this over with and on the road to recovery. I know PT is important, so that will be my main concentration for the next 4-6 weeks. I've already apologized to Gerry for being a lousy and demanding patient. I hope a blanket apology will suffice. We shall see.
I hope that Gerry will blog a little about my recovery and progress until I feel like doing a blog again. Warning! I don't think my daily life will be that interesting for the next 4 weeks, so if you don't tune in that will be understood.
A usual day for people reading my blog runs between 40 and 80 hits. The blog entry about a Free Lunch drew 400 hits. I guess there are a lot of people out there looking for free lunches. That was quite a surprise to me. My previous high was 250 when I mentioned Kyle Busch, the race car driver being at a restaurant nearby us in November. It's very difficult to predict what people want to read about, so I don't try. My daily ramblings will have to suffice.
We missed the first part of the game today going to the Goodwill Store looking for a cane, crutches and whatever else they had that I needed. I picked up some nice crutches for $7 so the search was a partial success. I have an old cane, so now the items on the list that I need are narrowed down to 2.
