We did it! Long may my favourite team, the Baltimore Ravens, reign supreme!

Note to self: don’t forget to turn the other one of these off.

Quest for Six

Saturday, January 26th, 2013 | Distractions

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the NFL’s number one rated team (statistically), the Atlanta Falcons, at their home stadium, the Georgia Dome, to win the NFC Championship title. There is a full report on A Brit Talks Football.

To be precise, it’s the sixth Championship title the 49ers have won, and the first since 1994 season, when they beat the Dallas Cowboys. But the quest continues – this books them a place in the Super Bowl, against the Baltimore Ravens. The 49ers are five for five on Super Bowl victories so far – will they keep their perfect record?

Super Bowl XLVI

Friday, February 17th, 2012 | Distractions

I’m a man who can deliver on his promises – last year I promised I would be booking the morning off to watch the Super Bowl and for Super Bowl XLVI, I delivered! You could of course argue that my willingness to take a day off because I was planning to be up very late isn’t really evidence of an ability to deliver to tough deadlines in any field of working life, but you would be wrong 😉 .

With the New York Giants having knocked out my beloved 49ers, who I have supported ever since I decided to pick a team to support and buy an appropriate shirt, I was firmly behind the New England Patriots and their very handsome quarterback Tom Brady. After all, there comes a point in life when you have to choose – are you a Patriot, or are you a Terrorist?

Unfortunately, with the Giants scoring a reluctant touch down with only a minute remaining on the clock, Brady couldn’t quite deliver a response. And that’s how I lost my housing deposit gambling on American Football…

Super Bowl XLV

Monday, February 14th, 2011 | Distractions, Events

Last week saw Super Bowl XLV.

Norm is a big fan of American Football so was hosting somewhat a Super Bowl party until he came down ill, so it ended up just being a few of us braving the long night despite most of us having work in the morning.

Despite knowing nothing about American Football I found the game incredibly entertaining. With it being on the BBC, we didn’t get the watch the legendary Super Bowl commercials, which is most of the game given each 15 minute quarter took 45 minutes to play out.

I’m definitely planning to book the morning off for it next year so I can stay up without worrying about having work on the morning. Well worth staying up for.
