Super Bowl;warm day;NASCAR Sprint cup and Nationwide series 2008 schedule

By: tropicfreak, 9:02 PM GMT on February 04, 2008

Super Bowl

As a result of the super bowl 42,the giants won.After the patriots(who I was going for)took the lead 14-10,the giants made a comeback and made a touchdown.Tom Brady did not have the best night ever.If the patriots had won,then it would be a perfect season 19-0.Brady made good throws but not enough to score a lot of touchdowns.Other than the super bowl itself,my favorite commercial was the Pepsi commercial when Justin Timberlake gets dragged around.I also liked the Coke commercial with inflatable characters from various shows but Charlie Brown ends up getting the coke.


Warm weather

Other than the snow and ice we're not getting I'm really enjoying the warm weather that we're getting.As you can see,it is currently 67 which is pretty comfortable,but I'm not in shorts.LOL Tommorwow is expected to be even more nicer with highs in the lower 70's.I'll dress in shorts and short sleeved shirt.But a cold front coming through wednesday will drop the temps,with the highs being in the 50's for the rest of the week.And no,there is no snow in the extended forecast.But for the end of february we shall see.

Nascar schedule

The 2008 season will begin this weekend with the bud shootout at Daytona.Then on valentines day the gatorade duel will start and finally,the 50th running of the DAYTONA 500 will start sunday feb 17th.I can't wait for the season to start.Here below is a schedule for the sprint cup and nationwide series schedule.
