half time show, meals on wheels

always thought the half time show was designed to energize and
entertain the fans at the half time
gosh if they are going to take 31 minutes for the show at least make
it a good one

thought about writing a letter to roger goodell the head of the nfl to
please get us a half time show that everyone will be talking about
the next day about how good it was and not about what body part
malfunctioned during the show
sunday it was the finger and some worn out bodies

they need to quit using entertainers that are at the twilight of their careers
loved the beetles in their day, loved mick and his guys and loved watching
the energy from madonna is years past
guess she didnt take her geritol or 5 hour energy before she performed

here is  a story of a half time show my family and i went to once
it was the best half time show that i have ever seen

when my youngest son was in middle school he played in the band
and was at that time interested in the band
so we took him and two of his friends to the cotton bowl one year
to watch the half time show there at a game being played during
the texas state fair
no it was not texas vs oklahoma
thats all about football

this game was grambling vs prairie view am
these are two majority black schools one from louisina and
the other from texas
(my younger son had done a interview the year before with
the legendary grambing football coach eddie robinson)

this was not all about football but was all about the bands
the cotton bowl was full that day when the game started
there was people actually sitting and standing to squeeze
in to see the show

think 60000+ fans at a concert
all getting excited and energized during the first half of
football getting ready for the main event the half time show
this would be pure entertainment that was
fast paced exciting and energizing

it was a true battle of the bands
at a level i had not seen before

the crowd went crazy during the half time show
those bands marching dancing moving playing energized music
got your heart rate up and got you up out of your seat
now thats how a half time show is suppose to be

dear roger please call the presidents of those two universities and ask
that their two bands provide the half time show next year
they wont need geritol to preform
and the fans wont care about those commercials

also after the half time show at that game
after the game restarted at the 2nd half most of the fans left
as they had come like us only for the half time show
we also left early

roger get it right next year please

yesterday i started my delivery of meals on wheels to seniors
in the area where i live
this is a good program that spends its money well
it uses volunteers to deliver the meals to the seniors

the seniors are appreciative as you deliver the meals
for some it may be the only human contact of the day
am sure they look forward to the interactions

also thought after seeing the numbers that there are
probably a lot of seniors who qualify for these meals
who havent been identified

my mom used these meals every day
it helped insure she was getting a well balanced diet
and gave another person for her to interact with every day

meals on wheels
hope those people we elect dont try to knock the wheels off
this program

  1. Dearest OGD. You know that I love and adore you.
    I even forgave you when you sent wet plants in my suitcase...
    but here you have gone too far.
    Are you sure you werent in the bathroom?
    Blending Margaritas?
    Checking in on your chickens?
    Whipping up a tofu fritatta?
    The half time show was superb! Entertaining! Joyful!
    Geritol?!?!? Really?!?!?
    Not only was Madonna carrying off incredibly difficult choreography that most people 30 years younger could not follow, but she was doing it all in 6 inch stileto, thigh high boots!
    She shared the stage graciously with all of the most popular acts of this past year.
    She even squeezed in a little religion.
    She ended all of this with a call to world peace.
    I implore you to visit the half time show on you tube and re evaluate your critique.
    I promise you that the American people got what they paid for and more.
    AND they didn't have to listen to an out of tune marching band.....
    I'm just sayin'

    1. tammy
      its was soaked plants wrapped in plastic bags
      not wet clothes as we didnt know the bags would leak

      thanks for your opinion
      still dont agree with you though
      blogged about it today


  2. TOGD, sorry I have to agree with Tammy on this one.
    My wife she and I watched and commented, that Madonna being our age was in darn good physical condition to perform like that, we were envious.

    You are right on some things, some of the "newer" band/artist would be nice, but I believe the money is not where they want it to show up an perform.

    Glad to hear that you are doing MOW, you are a good person to help and I will gamble, the people you touch with your smile and wit, make a difference in their day.

    1. organic cowboy
      thanks for your opinion and for reading this blog
      still have the same opinion
      see my todays blog

      the chickens just love those leaves
      they said thanks a lot
