    This was very nicely done and Presidents Bush and Clinton seemed quite genuine in their respect for each other.
    The real point of this post though for me, is to note how well President George H. Bush looked today. I thought in a couple of recent appearances he was looking a bit less healthier than today.
    It was good to see them both looking nice and healthy in a live setting.

    Yes they both seem healthy. I think the two of them were together earlier in the year (might have been the Clinton library opening). Seems like I recall Bush saying kind things about Clinton - and how his time in office gave him a new perspective on whoever occupies the office of president.

    Anyway they seemed in good health and good spirits. It was also good to see the cooperation in their joint endeaver to generate help for the tsunami victims.

    They had a shot of Clinton in a suite during the 3rd quarter I beleive where it looked like he could have cared less if he was there. Definitely not into the game...or if he was, he was being an Eagles fan.

    Not enough "honeys" to keep his attention. :lol:

    On another note...is that some perk of being a President, that blue jacket? :D

    I think you mean "he couldn't have cared less". And to be truthful, I couldn't agree more.:D For most, the Superbowl is just an excuse for a party. I was at two yesterday and except for a few diehard Patriot/Eagle fans, no one was very passionate about who was going to win. Most passion was about what "numbers" were significant to them in the various pools.

    Mostly, I missed Janet Jackson. If we end up discussing Paul McCartney for the next few weeks and months, we all really need to get a life!;)

    Was there a football game yesterday? I thought the season ended a few weeks ago. The only thing that I was hoping for was a Patriot loss since my jerk of a brother in law is a fan of theirs. The only good thing about their win is that its probably better for my sister that they won.

    Well, Eagles fans at least made money........ The Pats won BUT they didn't cover the spread, so the Red Sox nation got a little poorer (credit scores in new England must be dropping now that the $5000 World Series tix and losing Pats bets come home to roost).

    I don't bet on the games (I do play in a company pool -- won $400 for having the last digits match my grid box for the final score), bt I KNOW that a lot of people were crying when the Pats intercepted and the guy just slid instead of trying to make it to the endzone......

    I figured ministers would have to be VERY in tune with this particular game. While most people like to see folks "go long" on Super Bowl Sunday, the preacher's sermon doesn't qualify. ;)

    I've never understood the hoopla surrounding Super Bowls or World Series or any other such sporting event. The most boring party I've ever attended was a Super Bowl party at a friend's house several years ago. Everyone sitting around pretending to be interested in a game on television, taking cues on when to "hoop and holler" from the few sports nuts in the room who actually enjoyed the thing. Was really sad. And the spinich dip was really bad, too. :sure:

    HGL: It's easy to see when you have something vested in the participants.

    Sometimes it's easy. I live in New Hampshire and have been a long-uffering (until now) Red Sox and Patriots fans (along with the Bruins, Expos, Nashua Pride and Manchester Monarchs).

    I'd get more interested in a World Series if I had at least SOMETHING vested in it - like Anyone Beating The Yankees. A Super Bowl? Well, seeing Tampa Bay erase their decades of incompetence was a good story - felt some kindred spirit there (though no Buccanneer ever had to watch their coach nearly kill themself getting severely electrocuted by a microphone at a press conference).

    Beyond that - it's the commercials :)
