First of all, I would like to congratulate the Indianapolis Colts for their victory in Sunday's Super Bowl. They did what was expected of them.
Having said that, I would like to say that there was a much more interesting television to watch Sunday - and all weekend. The St. Jude auction was telecast on Minden Cable Channel 29. Our entire family watched most of the weekend, bidding on several things and winning a few.
People even came over to the house, so that we could watch and bid together. It was a great time, and for a good cause.
Apparently others found it to be a good thing as well, as this year's auction beat last year by more than $50,000. Minden really came together once again.
It is my hope that this spirit of cooperation would continue. If we would learn a lesson of what can be accomplished when people work together, there is no telling how successful we all would be.
By the way, I think the Saints would have done better than the Bears.
May the blog be with you.
