When he was young his father used to play sports with him. In football they would work on his accuracy
Also, it was the first time for a game to end within a touchdown, as well as the first Super Bowl game to be played on artificial turf, the MVP came from the losing team. Super Bowl Sunday is a major event. Super Bowl Sunday has always brought in a large crowd.

For students in the West Texas town of Odessa, the most worshipped are the gridiron starts of Friday night. They live their lives for the glory of representing the Permian Panthers at their stadium that seats nearly 20,000. They do it for themselves, they do it for their community, and the do it to carry on that tradition, however, varies from family to family.

This past weekend I was able to take a trip out to Charlottesville Va to see the Monticello which is the home of Thomas Jefferson. I had a wonderful time there and I loved all of the views that you get of the great mountain sides inside the house.
