I always get incredibly sad on Super Sunday because, as the pre-game shows drag on, I gradually come to grips with the realization that another season has ended and I won’t be getting my weekly football fix for another 6 months. Thank heavens we have an Olympics this year to help fill the void. I forget how much I enjoy speed skating until it returns to television.
My Saturday volunteer shift in Times Square was a wee bit busier than Wednesday night. The dense crowds shuffled down Broadway between exhibits like extras in The Walking Dead. But everyone was in a very festive mood, enjoying the day and the excitement leading up to the game.
