Albert Einstein once said: "A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?"
Of course, Mr. Einstein died before the Super Bowl was invented. I'm sure if he'd lived to see the first gridiron "king of the hill" battle, he might have changed bowl of fruit to Super Bowl of football. Right?
Okay, probably not. However, on this day that celebrates football greatness, one would think the above statement might be true in light of all the hoopla associated with this game.
Players & Their Super Bowl Dreams
Let's have some fun today with a few quotes from some of the best known football players.
Terry Bradshaw said, "As a player, it says everything about you if you made the Hall of Fame. But, then again, boy... there's something about winning a Super Bowl."
Michael Strahan said, "I always have a lot of personal goals, but primarily my main goal each year is to obviously win a Super Bowl."
Dan Marino said, "I want to know what it's like to play in a Super Bowl and win one. My career will be great without it. But, personally, selfishly, I want to know what it feels like."
And, finally, from Dallas Cowboys Duane Thomas: "If it's the ultimate game, how come they're playing it again next year?"
Enjoy this unofficial American holiday that's similar to Thanksgiving--large gathering of family and friends, lots of food, and football on the TV.
