two days to go!

This is what happens when you have a lone Steeler fan in our office. Kris found a digital pic of his little girl, and we redesigned his backdrop, in addition to leaving a little blue and teal action in his office. I love it.

From the Seattle Archdiocesan Progress....

Archbishops eschew Super Bowl neutrality
Long-time friends share ties, not loyalties
One was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The other was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Detroit. Both are now Archbishops with ties to the combatants in Sunday’s Super Bowl XL.

Cardinal Adam Maida, now Archbishop of Detroit, is a Pennsylvania native
and long-time friend of Seattle Archbishop Alex J. Brunett, who is the only
native-born Detroiter ever to be named an Archbishop.

In response to requests from media gathered in Detroit for the big game,
Cardinal Maida met with reporters on Monday, Jan. 30 to discuss Super Bowl

A published statement said Detroit’s Archbishop was officially “neutral” in
regard to the outcome of the game, but during the press conference Archdiocese
of Detroit spokesman Ned McGrath admitted that the cardinal is not, indeed,

Cardinal Maida corroborated saying, "I've got to get off the neutral thing - I'm rooting for the Steelers."

With Archbishop Brunett firmly in the Seahawks camp, the stage was set for
a friendly wager between the two Archbishops as the Pittsburgh Steeler and
Seattle Seahawks prepare to clash in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

“I’ll put up some Dungeness crab and salmon,” said Archbishop Brunett. Cardinal Maida responded by tendering a 12-pack of Dearborn Brand Coney Island hot dogs complete with Vlasic pickles, Vernor's ginger ale and, in honor of Pittsburgh, Heinz ketchup.

And in my e-mail...a funny for you! Happy Friday!

Terry Bradshaw, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was
showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Steelers
flag in thewindow. “This house is yours for eternity, Terry” said God.

“This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” Bradshaw felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3 story mansion with a blue and white sidewalk, a 50 foot tall flag pole with an enormous SEAHAWKS flag, and in every window a blue Towel.

Bradshaw looked at God and said, “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful,but I have a question. I was an all-pro quarterback, I hold many NFLrecords, and I even went to the Hall of Fame.”

God said, “So what’s your point Bradshaw?”

“Well, why does Matt Hasselbeck get a better house than me?”

God chuckled, and said, “Terry, that’s not Matt’s house; it’s mine.”
