My point being.......

Not so much the fact he was mugged.....

but his sheer perseverance, he was in agony
every day, but carried on for the kids.

A hero in my book.

Good morning El and all who come to this friendly kitchen. One of my friends son is coming to London for his senior trip. What an adventure for a young man :)

He is, Cuz El, he's a winner. I hope someone does the right thing and steps up and returns his gear. I've not seen any update to that.

See a bit on BBC News for America early January after the mugging happened.

Tea ... Earl Grey ... hot![please]

Good morning/afternoon, Kitchen-eers in the space-time continuum.

Care2.com do such wonderful work, I have been a subscriber to this for a long time now.
I don't always visit much as I should, so thanks for the reminder.
But as for the game, I love the enthusiasm and all that goes into the preparation, pre-match
was a joy. But I have to admit I just do not understand the workings of American football,
a cross between our Rugby and soccer? I watched a little to get the feel...turned over to
watch Man City v Chelsea.
Manchester United are in a slump, they are playing well but just not delivering. P's father
and my uncle played for this team...P is rapidly losing patience! I dn't desert a sinking ship and I think they will rise above this. I hope that David Moyes is given more time as Manager...Fergie wasn't so hot in the beginning.
Sunday will be a testing time for Man U.....the team they are playing are bottom of the league.
My account goes back to about 2001-2, and not frequented on a regular basis either. Yes, I appreciate the causes they endorse.

Did you have any American commercials on your recording? Or, are those spots filled with U.K, Ireland, and continent adverts? Just curious if you had the opportunity to get some "flavor" of the special emphasis for Super Bowl advertisements for this event.

Are Man U and Man City both in the Premier League?

Commiserations C_C.....it was a wonderful performance on both sides, it just
wasn't the Broncos day.
There's the joking of it:

"What did you watch when the game was over?"

A: "The half-time show".

As did I, because the new episode (for us) of Downton Abbey had yet started.

Thank You for that - he is a class act. We are very fortunate to have him and his fans from all over the US. People cheered for the Broncos just because of Peyton.

Of course I had to watch the Budweiser commercial with the puppy and horse and cry all over again. Love that commercial.

'Morning Denny. A good time to see far away places, hope he enjoys his visit.
I do hope the class are taken to places of interest too, other than just the
touristy spots.

First time I was aware of Jamie McDonald and his run across Canada, was this
morning on Sky News. It really touched me what he had been through.
Not the choicest time for me to quote his cries of 'who's the daddy' as he crossed
the proverbial 'finishing line' but I know it would not be mis-interpreted. lol
His gear was returned and generally the Canadian public were more than charitable.

Just checked to make doubly sure...but no, just British commercials inbetween play.
Shame that.
In answer, both teams are still in the Premier League, Man City is 2nd and Man U
7th. It is the first time in 26 years that United have not been in the top 4.
Still, it isn't over until the fat lady sings, as they say....:)

I'm glad you posted that, thank you. It doesn't surprise me, his home was on the northside of Indy here off N. Meridian St. Many chance encounters around here, a couple in person and others heard about from folks around here reveal the same down to earth, unassuming guy. I've heard wait-staff report that he refused to be put ahead of the waiting list for seating at a local restaurant, joking around with folks in line at the gas station, and holding doors open for elderly folks...calling folks 'sir' and 'ma'am'. This town loves him for reasons beyond football. He's also a king of the come-back; barring injury, we'll see him at that big game again.
A short trip out to the store for me, need a few things here before this latest round of snow.
You may see some icing down there, I pray your power will stay up.

What an inspiring man! Hubby and I just read and watched. Then we checked his facebook page and 15 hours ago he reported this;

"I did it - I reached the Pacific, 200 marathons later. The finish, but certainly not the end. Anyone can be a super hero."

Thank you for sharing!

That one was loved by many; polled "best". Most Budweiser ads are; Clydesdales or no. OH! And the one of the vet homecoming ... filmed a real one, you know. The couple were in the stands Sunday evening.

While I did not see all of the SB commercials, I saw most. Several were "leaked" to media sources prior to game day, so I saw some parts of those missed on Sunday evening.

What a great link...t/y...I watched 'Puppy Love', the Budweiser advert spoken of earlier,
also the 'home coming' which DW mentions above, enjoyed those greatly, also
watched the Dorito ad which I enjoyed too. What fantastic commercials over the pond!

Tea & biscuits enjoyed immensely. Somewhere on Youtube and/or, probably, Animal Planet you can enjoy:

Kitten Bowl, Puppy Bowl, and Fish Bowl...

Yes, folks are getting snow-silly over here! LOL!
A school principle in Kentucky (the state just south of mine) decided to get creative in announcing yet ANOTHER snow day for the kids. This recording is what parents heard last night when the automated system called them announcing the closing. Hilarious!

YW, I'm glad you enjoyed them! I gotta get out to the store, it's already started snowing. Hubby and I just found a million things to do before we left.
Have a great evening!
