EXTRA Super Tuesday
Listed are a few reasons why today is an Extra Super Tuesday.1. It is Super Tuesday primary day in the U.S. Presidential elections. It is the biggest primary is U.S. history (I have read.) 23 states are voting today to select the respective party nominees for President. I voted by mail-in ballot already, but if you are in a primary state and you haven’t voted, please do so…”early and often” as they say. If you don’t know where your polling place is, go to your favorite search engine (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask.com, etc.) and search “polling places (your state here)” and you’ll have a pretty easy chance of finding it.2. Today is a ticker tape parade for the Super Bowl Champions New York Giants. Not expected to win, they pulled off one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history by defeating the previously undefeated New England Patriots. Personally, I was pulling for the Giants, but, truth be told, I was more pulling against the Patriots quarterback (he really shouldn’t be posing for Stetson cologne ads, in my mind) and his irascible, hoodie-wearing coach…I’m just not a fan…much to the chagrin of some good friends who are die-hard Pats fans. Great season for both teams and unbelievable two years for the Manning family.3. For me, what makes is an extra super tuesday, is that it is my little guy’s first birthday today. A year ago, Jack was born at 10:36AM, weighing in at 10 pounds, 4 ounces and 21.5 inches long. It has been a great (and tiring) year. He’s a happy, healthy guy and we’re going to keep him.4.
