I turned on the Sunday news show and left it on as background noise when the news flashed on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman of a reported drug overdose. What a tragedy for his family and friends and all of us who reveled in his extraordinary acting talent.
Then, of course, at 4:30 pm from the first snap to first play in the second half, it was all downhill for the Broncos. What a weak performance combined with some very bad luck. I left the sound on, but couldn’t watch after the kickoff return. Still, thanks to Manning and the players for an exciting year.
A new CBS poll said six out of ten of us watched the game and were divided between wings and pizza. We went with spaghetti and meatballs. That was one of the few high points of the evening.
