I simply love this time of year, that of the football playoffs and the biggest game of the year, the Super Bowl! While I don’ t have that much time to really follow sports, I have spent the past 35 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and consequently am a San Francisco 49ers fan (and SF Giants as well when it’s baseball season). Also, before they moved the football season out a week or two, the Super Bowl used to fall on or around my birthday. In fact, I remember back in 1985, Super Box XIX was held in the Stanford University stadium (I grew up on the Stanford campus) and I had a birthday party to watch the SF 49ers beat up the Miami Dolphins. Every time the 49ers would score, my friends and I would rush outside to hear the stadium crowds just a mile or so away.
Because many dads like sports (and we actually have a pretty good representation of dads in the Cast of Dads since there are plenty of dads who do NOT follow sports – we give Jeff Sass grief every time we talk about sporting events), we did kick off episode 56 (“Our Picks for the Big Game“) talking about the Super Bowl (and how I know the 49ers are going to win).
But, as is typical on the Cast of Dads, we went well beyond just sports, we covered movies, summits, secret projects, illness, New Year’s and a whole lot more (see The Topics below).
Here are some of the topics we covered in Episode #56:
- Who will win the Superbowl?
