From 80s Football Cards
I know this is going to sound weird, but just hear me out and you might agree with me: I think Super Bowl 21 was actually an interesting game and a lot more competitive than a lot of classic NFL fans and historians believe it was. I know right, 39-20 with the Giants completely taking apart the Broncos. But they did that in the 2nd half. The Broncos were ahead after the 1st quarter and 1st half and Broncos QB John Elway actually played fairly well in the first half.
It was 26-10 after 3 with the Giants leading and they added 3 more points to their lead in the 4th. So the Giants gradually pulled way leaving the Broncos with opportunities to get back in the game, but the Giants defense almost completely shutting down Elway and company in the 2nd half.
On paper, Super Bowl 21 was a very competitive football game. The difference being that the Giants were a big, strong football team on both sides of the ball. With the Broncos being a very quick and mobile team on both sides of the ball, but not physically strong enough to stop a big, strong, good offensive team that the Giants had in the mid and late 1980s. But their type of team served the Broncos very well in the AFC in the 1980s. So yeah, 39-20, but the Giants wore down the Broncos over 4 quarters with their big, strong offense and defense.
Super Bowl 21 wasn’t like the Giants were simply 19 points better as far as personal. They were just that much bigger and stronger than the Broncos. Similar to a great heavyweight who wears down his opponents over time with a lot of deadly body shorts, before he eventually knocks him out.
I’m a blogger because I like writing about things I’m interested in and knowledgeable about. Which shouldn’t sound surprising, but blogging provides that immediate outlet for me and other bloggers to weigh in on what they’re thinking about and what they’re interested in. To put down on paper or computer words and feelings that they may struggle to get out of their mouths on the spot. To be able think about things and then express them.
That is what blogging and writing is about, at least when it comes to commentary. Writing as a reporter or biographer, is a bit different. Because it’s not so much about what the writer feels that is relevant unless they’re being asked about it. But what’s more important is what they know and how they know that based on their reporting.
An opportunity for blogger commentators to get things off their chest that perhaps they’re not able to do simply by speaking to people. That is my favorite thing about blogging to be able to immediately get things off my chest that I’m thinking about.
Blogging is the perfect form of communication for me, because I’m interested in so many different things and frankly knowledgeable about them. I write mostly about current affairs. Government and politics, public policy, history, but I’m also interested in sports especially sports history, as well as movies especially classic Hollywood and entertainers. Especially entertainers who’ve been around a long time and are from classic Hollywood. Today’s Hollywood and entertainment, not so much, but that is a subject for another piece.
And when you’re a blogger and you just read something that got your attention and were really interested in from either a positive or negative standpoint, or perhaps you just saw a movie or saw some story and you’re really interested in and knowledgeable about what you just saw, you can immediately weigh in on what you just saw. I mean to be a blogger all you really need is a computer and have something to say. Being able to write helps as well.
That is what blogging and writing is to me. The ability for people to write what they’re thinking and how they feel, as well as what they know. Which is the most important thing here, because even commentators need to know what they’re talking about to be successful and make a living at that. Whether they write or talk on TV or radio, or a combination of all those things.
That is what I’m going to do here and if you’re someone who has multiple interests and are interested in things besides who the latest hot celebrity is and who that person is seeing and why they’re in trouble now, or what the latest new technology is, then I hope you check out this blog. Because I cover a lot of different things here and not just government and politics, but history including Hollywood history and to a certain extent what’s going on there today. And you might even see a few pieces about so -called celebrity culture, but just from a a satiric viewpoint.
