Seahawks vs. Broncos:  The Powell family hosted the Superbowl party. Friends Mark & Kim, Marc Lui, and Ben & Amy brought their kids, and the game was on, even fair weather fans like my wife got the fever. But the most exciting thing for our girls was halftime, they kept saying, “When are we going to see the Hot Peppers?”

The Vegas Line:  At kickoff Vegas had the Broncos winning by 2 1/2. That changed on the first snap of the game, and by the end of the first quarter I was trying to get $10 at 10-1 odds, $100 if the Seahawaks lost. No takers. I kept raising the odds. Percy Harvin’s touchdown made it 100-1, $1,000 if the Broncos won. Later the odds rose to $10 for our house.

GAME OVER!

GAME OVER!

My Unfriend:  In the Seahawks precursor, the real Superbowl, the Hawks beat the San Francisco 49ers, 23-17. Local writer Robert Dugoni posted disgust on Facebook, saying that Seahawk fans should “be embarrassed.” Sore winner that I am, I posted “ha ha ha” and he unfriended me: Robert “49er” Dugoni vs. Caleb “Seahawk” Powell. Double Ha! Seahawks 43 Broncos 8. Triple Ha! Harbaugh’s self-imploding in San Fran:  Tension between Harbaugh and front office .

Fans are nuts:  Now, I like the Hawks, but it’s a game. I’d never whine and then unfriend a guy who calls out my whining. What makes fans go nuts, as they did in Vancouver after the Canuck Choke, or in Honduras and El Salvador’s Soccer War, is beyond me. The Seahawks Parade didn’t interest me, but my daughters, oddly, wanted to brave 20 degree weather. Ugh. I think they thought they’d get out of school, which they did as Aunt Tracy and Uncle Sanjay took them. Gia and Ava froze their little hineys off.

Daddy/Daughter Dancing:  What could be better than a Daddy Daughter Dance? Especially when my man Ben “How you Been Ben?” Yenter joined.

    Your Stay-at-Home postings over the years have been quite a review in terms of seeing your girls growing up….and your wife is as lovely as ever….you did well, young man.

    Cute. Thanks for the smile! I need it as I sit here while Maylin spends the next 8-minutes trying to calm down. I guess part of calming down is yelling “That’s not fair!” and “I deserve an aplogy!” Anyway, reading this helped me to tune it out and smile…

    Your family looks great!
