“What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen,
What old December’s bareness everywhere!”  – Sonnet 97

And yet, it isn’t even December!  It’s February for god’s sake, and we’re still enduring below freezing temperatures, gale winds, piles of snow, school closings, car pile-ups, icy driveways, and front doors frozen shut.  I’m ready for this crazy winter to end already!

“A victory is twice itself when the achiever brings home full numbers.” – Much Ado About Nothing

Well I never expected it to be a shut out.  Who knew Super Bowl XLVIII would be so utterly dominated by the Seattle Seahawks?  The above quote is really about war, and how a victory in war is twice as good when the soldiers also survive and come home afterwards.  But I bet the Seahawks’ victory feels even better accompanied by such a high score.  Congrats Seahawks, though it was a painful game to watch from Peyton Manning’s perspective.
