Super Bowl Sunday - View from the Belfry

This is the Tampa skyline
We have lived here nearly 13 years now, and to us, the Tampa area is fairly peaceful.

We love to go to the beach and relax. I love the ocean (or gulf), the sounds of the water are very soothing to me.

Even when you throw in a trip to one of the many amusement parks around here - Busch Gardens is approximately 15 minutes from our home - our lives stay fairly calm and collected.

The past few weeks have been CRAZYhowever.
The newspapers, the TV news, everywhere you go - it is all you hear about, it is all you see!

That's right!

Super Bowl

It is here, in Tampa, today.

(just in case you didn't know this)

I know no one who has tickets for this event.

I have been to a Monday night football game at Raymond James Stadium however. It was quite good. A lot different to Australian Rules Football. American football stops and starts a little to much for me. It is exciting when they shoot off the cannons when the Bucs score a touchdown!!

It would be wonderful if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were playing in the Super Bowl today. But alas, they are not! .

I miss Australian Rules football. For those who may not know anything about Aussie Rules footy - here are some pictures. Not a helmet or padding to be seen anywhere.
