Snippits of Post Super Bowl XLV Conversation

SNIPPITS OF POST SUPER BOWL XLV CONVERSATION

as heard in the local diner

I stopped at a local diner the morning after the Pittsburgh Steelers lost Super Bowl XLV, and typed the following snippits of conversation about the game:

Didn’t you like the way the woman sang? (sarcastically)…It’s all part of the dumbing down of America…I thought they (the Pittsburgh Steelers) would win right up to the end… Big bodies hitting big bodies…He fumbled the ball…Bradshaw is the only one I saw—he’s like a bullet—they (the Green Bay Packers)  were coming down there like Niagara Falls…Roethlisberger didn’t have the protection, and they knew he was a little hurt…The team is made up of a bunch of yoyos, if the team gets behind there’s no use watching, they will never win…How much money they’re making…Really, what they need to do is really put  the money up front for the guys, they should put something aside for their retirement, a pension plan…Their career is so short, they may be cut after the first year…$30 million a year to work, it’s a lot of money…They have to get rid of that guy, Big Ben—they need someone better, but a lot of them aren’t that good…That guy makes me not want to buy tickets…in baseball Maguire is the purity of the game…You (directed towards the waitress) are not wearing your Steelers sweat shirt…No, I wore it yesterday…No one is wearing black and gold—except (they pointed to me)…I still think they Steelers are winners ( replied)—after all, they made it to the Super Bowl…They had some good commercials…Black armband day—it was quiet last night, even at the bar where everyone goes…Did you see the  commissioner, the one who hands out the trophies?…. I watched about thirty seconds of the National Anthem, it was an atrocity—and half time show—I glanced at  it for fifteen seconds and then thought Why am I watching it…Too much of the newly new stuff…I never knew the National Anthem as a drinking song…An English one…We almost won…Some of those guys might retire, they’re on the edge…They can’t cover, when they cover a guy they can’t cover every direction…That’s his job, throw to him,…There weren’t any riots in Pittsburgh, but there probably would’ve been had we won…I don’t think there were too many fires in Pittsburgh…

Every time someone new came in, the conversation would, as you see, begin at the beginning, often with comments about the National Anthem.

At this point, I had to leave, and as I left, someone new arrived and I heard—The woman who sang the National Anthem…

  2. I’m glad to see that a Greensburg Tribune-Review editorial, while commenting on the game, at least gave “All due congratulations to a Packers team that was firing on all its cylinders…” and stated “But all due kudos, too, to a Steelers team that overcame many obstacles to make an eighth Super Bowl appearance.” Tribune-Review, Feb. 8, 2011, pp A9, “There They Went”
