When that American football game thingy is over.

Where are you guys?

American football? You mean they actually play soccer in the States?

I didn't watch any of the footballing but I did put on Springsteen and he was outstanding. His lovely bride played guitar.

I'm with Santa. Didn't watch the game, but I did tune in for Springsteen. It sounded like he hurt his voice during Born to Run, but he is getting older, and he still puts on a *** good show.

The good news is it is about time for the pitchers and catchers to show up for Spring Training! We are getting triple A ball in Reno and Brett Butler, who was great fun to watch with the Giants (and Dodgers before than and I think Arizona after the Giants) is going to be our manager!

I've never been much of a fan, but I did watch most of it. I felt obliged since I was born in Pittsburgh. This was really an incredible game.

Well I guess I am the odd one here. I watched the football game and by the way it was one of the best ever Super Bowls. Took a break when Bruce was on.

Watched the pregame show. You would think Bruce would have had a lilttle more class as he said he is not much of a football fan and gave the impression that he thought it was rather boring.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

No rather about it. It is boring. When you get right down to it. Football, Baseball, etc mean nothing to us really. It doesn't change our lives in anyway. Don't believe me? When was the last time any team from any sport payed you to sit and watch them play? Shows how trivial it really is.

It was a great game. Bruce put on a great show, and we have a lot of wet blankets here.

While many people have diffeent likes and dislikes that is why they make vanilla and chocolate ice cream I cannot find any sense in your post stating the following:

What in heavens name does magic do for you...or I should say for the people who watch it performed. Sports are no different than magic..both are entertainment..loosen up..smell the roses we are not here all that long enjoy life. Go to a football or baseball game with your children and take them to see a magician..I am sure they will enjoy all of the aforementioned. However I do not think any of these things will change their lives just from watching and enjoying themselves.

One last point I would like to make..how many magicians do you know that pay people to see them perform?????

I much prefer to play the games rather than watching, but to me a *** good football game with two good teams is far from boring. You can usually tell how boring it's gonna be after the first quarter, and then tune out and do something else. Better than the game, it's having some people you like around to enjoy some time together. Especially if they bring over some free drinks and food.

Acesover. The point is people think sports mean something and matter to everyone and that the world would fall apart without sports. None of the magicians I have know have ever acted this way nor have fans of other forms of entertainment that I know. I have never thought magic was important to everyone or that it is going to change anyone's life. Sure magic is important to me but I'm not going to die if all of a sudden there was no more magic at all. No props books etc.. sure would be upset but not end of the world. Ask a good majority of sports fans what they would do if there were no more sports. You will hear a much different story. Also tell a football, baseball,fan that you don't like sports at all. They look at you like you have the leprosy and must be avoided. Someone tells me they don't like magic that is fine. I know there are some magicians that do that too when told by someone they don't like magic. But most magicians are not that way.

It's fine to really enjoy things one likes but people blow sports up to be some life saving wonder and it's not pure and simple.

I'm sure several on here now feel I should be tared and feathered for saying the above. Or that I'm on par with a heritic.

What a bunch of girly men.

If you don't think Bruce is number one then you are full of number two.

Magic is fun but not as much as football, or hard hitting rock and roll. This thread reminds me that I have very little in common with the duds that post here.
