February 11, 2010 Page 3 Random Super Bowl thoughts Hello. Well. another winter day! Minus fifteen this morning. Wind out of the northwest. Wind chill of minus forty. Groundhog says six more weeks of winter. I'1l bet you dollars to donuts that there is more than six weeks of winter left. 1 think our snow is so deep, and cold, that if it turned to eighty above, we would have six more weeks of blowing snow. Now this is the day after the Super Bowl. As a kind of Viking fan, 1 didn't really care who won. Because. after the Vikings called time out. and then sent twelve guys into the huddle a couple weeks ago, it is hard to think anything but. "what if?". But it was a darn good game. And I was up a little late. So with my mind kind of mushy, I searched through some old columns and found one from a Super Bowl four years ago. It kind of explains my outlook on football... I am writing this on Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl Forty. Or XLV. or XVL, or something like that. I never did understand why we have to use the Greek numbers for Super Bowls. I am sure it is not because the players are intellectual persons who study Aristotle and converse in Greek. And to tell the truth. maybe Aristotle was Latin. I get a little mixed up with my philoso- phers. But. oh well to each their own. Anyway, I am writing this in the early morning hours before the game begins. Now. I am a football fan. Not a die-hard, never miss a Sunday fan. but I do follow the sport to an extent. And as lofig as Terry Bradshaw is quarterbacking the Hat Tips By Dean Meyer i didn't really care who won. Because, after the Vikings called time out, and then sent twelve guys into the hud- dle a couple weeks ago, it is hard to think anything but, "what if?". Steelers, I am not giving up. Cause he is a rancher you know. So you have to cheer for him. Actually, Shirley and TelTy are friends. They flew together to some cattle meetings years ago. So. ! kind of consider him close enough to come to Thanksgiving. Oh. oh. Shirley .just came by and informed me that Terry is no longer with the Steelers. Wish 1 had that hundred that I bet back. We are leaving for Oklahoma today to look at some cattle and pick up a trailer. I don't know why I picked Super Bowl Sunday to drive, but I think it is a sub-con- scious thing. You know. how sometimes you scratch before you even itch. Or you wake up in the night for no reason and the house is on fire. Things j ust happen. Shirley calls it fey. I remember taking a Faye to the prom. but that is another story. When I turned down a couple of invites to Super Bowl parties. well, actually only one. and you had to pay to go, and it was at a relatives. I was accused of being un- American for not attending a party and watching the game. I think I did it because of all the disappoint- ments that have rained down upon my shoulders in past Super Bowls. The Vikings four losses. The missed extra point by the Rams that cost a Super Bowl. The "miraculous reception" and the home run by Bobby Thompson. I remember being in Nebraska in a poker game. And a bunch of guys drinking beer and deciding we should bet a thousand dollars on the Vikings cause Bud Grant was the greatest coach ever. Now. the beer is gone. Bud is gone, the thousand dollars is gone. and it looks like the Vikings are pretty well gone. The last game I had a lot of interest in was the college champi- onship this year. USC and Texas. I wish it had been on earlier in the evening. For me, Jeopardy is late night TV. But I stayed up to watch. With USC leading by 12 and five minutes to go, I knew the game was over and went to bed. In the morning I flipped on the TV to find i had missed the filost exciting finish in college football since Flutie ran for that touch- down. Or threw, or whatever. against Notre Dame. So this afternoon, as I am driv- ing across the northern plains. headed for Oklahoma. for your sake. I hope it was a good game. I will be listening to Sinatra on the CD player. Unless of course, we stop at a bar to watch the game. Maybe we would have time for one beer and some chicken wings!

Blowing over the road again A strong northwest wind in the Sentinel Butte area, plus some previous snow and fog, make for poor highway conditions again on Sunday, Feb. 7. (Photo by Richard Volesky) State: H 1 N 1 could still be an issue BISMARCK - The North Dakota Department of Health and North Dakota's local public health units are encouraging homebound residents to contact public health if they want to receive the H1N1 vac- cine. "We know there are residents who are physically unable to leave their homes or are unable to wait in line at a clinic or visit a doctor's office. We want to make sure those residents have access to H1N1 vac- .cine if {hey want it," said Molly Sander, Immunization Program manager for the North Dakota Department of Health. Homebound residents who wish to be vaccinated can contact their local public health unit directly to an'ange a home visit or can call the North Dakota Department of Health influenza hotline at 1-866-207-2880 for assistance. As of Feb. 2. there have been 3,230 confirmed cases of influenza in the state, including 101 hospital- izations and three deaths. Last year at this ttme only 116 cases had been reported. Health officials want to remind everyone that even though there is not much flu activity in the state right now, influenza can be very unpredictable. "'Past pandemics have shown us that there can be multiple waves of illness," Sander said. "We don'~ know if we will see another wave of HIN1 influenza this year or not, so we really want high-risk people to take the opportunity now to get vac- cinated in order to protect them- selves and their families.'"
