A first for the black community

From what I understand this is the first time in Super Bowl history that we have had two black head coaches in the Super Bowl. I am super excited about this today and also for the fact that we will have our first black head coach winner today too (from what I understand from the tv yesterday). I was watching some interviews on ESPN while at the Y running yesterday and they had numerous famous "stars" on there making comments on today's history making game. The one that stuck out to me the most was when Kobe Bryant stated that he looks forward to a day when we don't even discuss this because it isn't a big deal anymore. Won't that be a great day!

I will be watching the Super Bowl today with the Shingleton's and don't even have a favorite. I'll probably pick a favorite during one of the segments when they discuss some player's horrible childhood and how he turned it all around and is now playing in the Super Bowl. That is how I pick my teams!

Who are you rooting for?

in my own humble opinion, you should root for the colts. tony dungy (their head coach) is from tampa & he is a very strong christian. he's a member at a church here in town & he is really involved there with his family. He's very outspoken (in a good way!!) about his faith & sees his job as a ministry....so I say, GO COLTS!!

We are going Bears...two reasons, Super Bowl Shuffle (dated myself, eh) and dislike for the Volunteers which means I can't root for Peyton Manning. HA! :) GO BEARS! Oh, and Jesse lived in Chicago for 7 years...
