Raymond James Stadium
Today is the 55th Super Bowl Sunday. I wasn't really stressed. There were 30,000 cutout fans using up most of the available seats.
Only 25,000 fans attended. Masks were required. That included 7,500 vaccinated health care workers who had been invited. This was the smallest attendance, in Super Bowl history.
I actually know of one person who paid $100. to be on a cutout. I know my cousin and her family attended. (no idea how they arranged tickets!) But I was quite content to be at our Airbnb today, far away from any gatherings or in-person excitement.
I would have been game to have paid a visit to one of these stadiums, however.
Interesting that stadiums around the country have been using their space to help handle vaccinations. I'm so ready for a vaccine!
Tiny Super Bowl Party
But, I was content to enjoy our simple celebration this year. We had actually hoped to celebrate a new baby, but we'll be patient.
Our grandbaby was due yesterday, but nothing yet. So, Heidi and Jamie came over at 3, just before the anthem. We put out some food and watched the kick off.
Then Heidi and I stepped outside and took some photos. The weather has been glum for 10 days, but the sun peeked out for a moment.
I got some photos of Heidi and her sweet tummy. Looks like we won't have a Super Bowl Baby. Valentine Baby? Mardi Gras Baby? Chinese New Year Baby?
After some photos, we stepped back inside and headed for the Theatre Room. (gotta love an Airbnb with a media room!)
We watched some fun commercials and saw a surprise streaker. We analyzed the "canned" crowd cheers and we watched the game. It wasn't exciting enough to prompt any baby action. The Chiefs lost and Tom Brady celebrated with the Buccaneers. His his 7th Super Bowl win.
It would have been a much more exciting Super Bowl, if it had been interrupted with a trip to the hospital!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
