Shame On You Go Daddy.com

With the Super Bowl fast approaching I was reminded of the GoDaddy.com commercials I have been seeing all season long on ESPN, Fox and CBS during football games. I cannot fathom why these networks would allow such a obviously sexual commercial to be aired during a time when male and female children are sitting in front of the TV with their parents or worse, by themselves.

I am not a prude, but I know if some of the things that were made available to me  when I was a kid, were not within my grasp, I wouldn’t have been the hyper sexual teenager I was. I’d be fine with that.

Hollywood keeps shoving sex and violence down the throats of minors and we wonder why teenagers act the way they do. I hope I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Garrett Morgan was born in Paris, Kentucky on March 4, 1877. He was an inventor and best known for inventing the Gas Mask. His ‘lesser’ known inventions include the zig-zag stitching on modern day sewing machines and the traffic light. His invention made driving safer for the drivers as well as pedestrians.

On July 25, 1916, Garrett Morgan made national news for using his gas mask to rescue 32 men trapped during an explosion in an underground tunnel 250 feet beneath Lake Erie. Morgan and a team of volunteers donned the new “gas masks” and went to the rescue.

Super Bowl XLIV


Dateline: January 24, 2010, Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN.

Heading to Miami, it’s the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl on February 7, 2010. Final score was Colts 30 – Jets 17. The Colts will go up against the Saints but I was hoping for a match up with the Minnesota Vikings. I’m not as confident with the Colts going against the Saints as I was with the Colts and the Jets, but I’m hoping for the best.

After trailing at halftime the Indianapolis Colts came back to beat the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game. I do think this Super Bowl has the potential at least to be the highest scoring in the history of the Super Bowl. If history serves me correctly or better yet, my memory, the highest scoring Super Bowl was between the 49ers and the Chargers for a total of 75 points. Regardless of the outcome I will be glued to the TV for what promises to be a great game.

At the game were Tony Dungy, Rob Lowe, Eli Manning, Joe Namath, Taylor Lautner and Jordin Sparks sang our national anthem.
