Every Sunday, when I was in college at Purdue, was spent on the couch watching football.
When I married my farmer that changed. Football isn't necessarily his sport. And my priorities changed.
But every year around this time I remember my memories from my Superbowl experience in Miami for the 2006 season.
I won't forget getting the phone call from my Dad and Stepmom asking if I can miss a few days of classes at Purdue.
I have been really blessed to have done lots of very neat things in my life, and going to the Superbowl to watch my Colts play definitely qualifies as Top 5.
Even as I sit on the couch this year watching the game I am so proud that my home state has the opportunity to show their stripes.
And judging by the Facebook pictures, my Dad's talk of the week, and my best friend, a Colts cheerleader, I would say Indy really has shown their best!
It would have been great to partake in the experience this year, but I am happy that my brother gets to go to the game with my Stepmom to watch his Giants. He will never forget it, just like I have never forgot my time at the Superbowl.
In Miami it rained and the stadium was full of Bears fans...but I don't think our family could have been happier for the Colts win. It was such a great experience!
Here's to another Superbowl game, which is almost like a National Holiday in itself!!
