Super Bowl 2005

For most of my friends in India this is something new....its the final of the National Football (American Football not Soccer)league...the people here call it the World Championship....here everything is a World Series or World Championship...

The Irony of that brand name....only the teams from the US take part in the events. NBA champions are called World Champions but USA got knocked off in the preliminary rounds at the Real World Championships where the teams from all over the world compete, they barely managed to get a Bronze at the Olympics after 3 humiliating defeats.....Baseball finals are called the world series but Cuba gets the gold at most of the Olympics....is there something that I dont understand or these people dont ?? How can someone be a World Champion when teams from neighboring countries also dont take part in a tournament.....


Well..coming back to the Super Bowl 2005....every year its a big event for people to get together (in some cases bigger event than Christmas) eat chips and other junk food and drink lots of beer and other cola drinks...basically a lot of calories !!!!!!! I like the event for its commercials...the best commercials of the year are aired during the gametime...some of them are really hilarious but mostly average and some suck...I am still a bigger fan of Indian commercials....Bajaj,Rasna, Lifebouy, Vico-turmeric, dabad lal danthmanjan etc.... they have a catchy tune and nice jingle to go with:)

We had great time before the Super bowl with a potluc lunch (idli, sambhar and Chatni)...during the game we had potluc dinner...Fried rice (Subha), kofta curry ( Sindhu), sambhar (sindhu), egg curry (anil) and desserts .... Gulab Jamun (amru), Chocolate Chip cookie pie and Cappuccino Jello Pie (urs truly)...we ate a lot that day with Chips, garlic bread, pop and beer servings as finger food and drinks... we played a great game called ..."mafia"...that was the first time that I had played that game...it was a brilliant game...I might sound silly if I explain it but when u play it u will realise what a great game that is....u can spend hours without realizing time....

welll....let me also mention abt the game before I get bored writing abt the Super Bowl:):)....It was between Eagles (Philly) and Patriots (NE).....every one that I talked to wanted to Eagles to win but all of us knew that the inevitable thing was a "Patriots victory"....if u would ask me who would I like to see win the answer would be "Eagles"...but if I were to bet on it then i would have put my money on the "Pats"....they are a greAt team but the only reason i dont like them is becoz they beat my fav team "Colts" and also becoz they have won 2/3 times so there should be some change in the final results...

well the game as expected was pretty close but the result was never in doubt as the Pats defense had the eagles on a leash even with their best received TO on the field...Bellichick (pats coach)....showed the world why he is called the "king maker"...he is the brains behind the team and is a brilliant strategist...he would have analysed every possible play before the start of the game itself and would have had his defence ready for all those situations...well the final score 24-21 might not sound as if the game was one-sided but it was very clear who was going to win through the final three quarters...
