I have the same sort of thing going at quizno's now. Although I'm not as consistent about the sub I order, they still know I want wheat bread and "everything on it".
Don't really have a point to this post..just an observation.
The reason for this is simple. Lovie Smith (who names their son Lovie?) and Tony Dungy both coached the Bucs and there they came up with the "Tampa 2" defense (along with Monte Kiffen).
A lot of story lines are going on about how this is the first time a black coach has made it to the super bowl (it's also the first time 2 black coaches have made it to the super bowl). I don't see why this is a story line. No one has said that black coaches couldn't make it to the super bowl. No one has said that they weren't "smart enough". (at least in the last 20 years) I guess I either never paid attention to who was coaching or just expected it to happen at some point.
I think the bigger story line should be mentor vs. protege. The scheme these guys developed changed a team from constantly being in the dumps to being a super bowl contender through the late 90's and early 00's. Now they get to battle each other. This is like going against your dad in a game. You both know each other's tendencies, you know how they prepare, you probably even know how their playbook is color coded.
That's the story line. That's the way this game should be remembered. Now it only needs to be in the right city..

In this picture we all look normal size. The only thing that might tip you off is the Christmas tree (which I think is 8 ft) This picture was taken about 6 or 7 years ago. Gordon has only gotten taller.
While I didn't get the height gene, I did however get the eagle eye gene. No glasses for me (at least not yet)
Anyways, thought I would share the photo..I found it on an old web hosting service.

While it was great to see my dad and brother this weekend, she is the one who makes every day better. I honestly don't know what I would do without her.
Thank you dear, for everything that you do.
