I promise this blog is about traveling and not about football, but you know timing is everything. It just so happened that driving through Louisiana on our way to South Texas a few weeks back, we were able to stop and check out a bunch of cool Super Bowl XLVII (47) stuff. And even though the Houston Texans are out of the running, everyone here is already siding with either the Baltimore Ravens or San Francisco 49ers. Not to mention ready for those (all the sudden) hard to find wings yet still 1.23 billion will be consumed.
As a bonus football motivator we spent a day in Houston last week and was able to see the massive Reliant Stadium (home of the Texans) and even more meaningful to us was the old “Houston Astrodome” which was the birthplace of our beloved Tennessee Titans, which was exciting.We had always enjoyed the Houston Oilers, and where our star quarterback Steve McNair got his start. Even before you had the powerhouse team consisting of Warren Moon, Haywood Jefferies, Drew Hill, Earnest Givings. Does Dan Pastorini ring a bell? Think we still have football on the brain
So anyway, on the drive back to Galveston we were saying how fun the day was and then started reliving our awesome trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio we took back in July and thought…traveling, football, Super Bowl, wings we have to share some of the great football pictures we have we have celebrating some of the rich history of the greatest sport there is.
It’s either this or would you rather us show a bunch of beach pictures and tell you how it was 90 degrees Monday here in Corpus Christi and 68 today. My big brother might smack me since he just informed me they would have a low tonight of 15 degrees. I chose to wait another week for that. I don’t want any bruises showing for Sundays big game.
So Sunday fire up the grill, get a beverage of choice and enjoy the game
Our picks: Pam is for San Francisco, Chris says Baltimore will take them down. What do you say?
