Last week, I asked the question if any of you ran the marathon, and I received responses from four of our people who ran in it.  Two even finished under 3 hours and 51 minutes!! So this week, I am going to ask if there is anyone who has ever played in a Super Bowl Game. Or, has anyone who’s attended a Super Bowl Game?  I am anxious to hear the responses on this one!!  For the rest of us, enjoy the game or find some quiet time to enjoy a few hours of relaxation.
