Super bowl... I can't believe this title...

Anyone who knows me knows I don't like football - with a passion I don't like it.  I'd be happy if all of the stadiums were sucked into a void somewhere and we never had to deal with another game ever.  So this is not going to be a happy go packers post - if you are looking for that just quit reading...

I'm sick to death of the whole super bowl thing.  I do not want to hear one more word about the damn thing - I know this won't happen but really does this have to be the focus for two weeks?  Why can't they play the super bowl the day after the final play off game?   I know why - big bucks.  Okay and maybe logistics.

Our lovely governor is going to the super bowl.  Ken heard that it is going to cost $10,000 for him to go and that was on the taxpayers dime.  I looked on line to see what was up and found that he bought the tickets for him and his family - one article said he was charging it to his campaign.  I question that use of funds. 

In all the articles he made a point of saying that the tax payers only had to pay for the security detail he was required to take.  Well I say with the money crunch, he should be staying home and watching it at the governor's mansion.  Or he should be reimbursing the state for the cost of that security detail. 

I do want to say that I'm proud to be a Wisconsinite.  I think our fans are well behaved and good natured (for the most part).  I think they show what good sportsmanship is and love the game.  We have good people in our state - yes we have some damn awful ones too but overall... good people. 

Aside from that I have only one thing to say about the super bowl - Is it done yet?
