    While the Super Bowl #49 is this coming Sunday, February 1, 2015…I have no dog in this fight…but, I hope Seattle wins. It is my thought the Patriots (I have no proof) had something to do with the deflated footballs, since each opposing team provides about a dozen for each game played during the season.

    Hearing the news on TV, about a million people are supposed to be in the Arizona area where the game will take place starting at 6:30 PM. I also understand more money is wagered on the Super Bowl than any other sport during the year. As I hear it...the game will be a pick…no favorites.

    Still the bookies and casinos in Las Vegas are in for a lot money to be made. I recall being in Las Vegas quite some years ago and betting $200 on the Philadelphia Eagles winning a football game they were playing that weekend. I can tell many stories about winning money…however, many losses supersedes any winnings I ever made.

    We hear many great stories about winnings and losses in the casinos in Las Vegas…one true story is some music mogul bet on throwing a higher number on a pair of dice than his opponent on one throw of the dice; the winner walked away with a million dollars.

    It makes me wonder what the odds would be on a man living until 100 years of life or beyond. I'll reach that goal December 11, 2015. As far as I know, only one other member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors has lived to be a centenarian. Hopefully, I will be the second; I am already a member of the 50-year Virtual Plaques with induction scheduled for April of this year. Another member of Chapter 190, Jim Chamberlain will join me on that auspices occasion.

    Dan, as much as I've seen you say that you're under-educated, I've NEVER seen any evidence to support that claim. And I FINALLY caught a goof! Didn't you mean "auspicious" in your last sentence? I'm GLAD you're still here!:excited:
