The glow has begun to abate and I am back in the loving embrace of my immediate nuclear family again.
And away from that drunken sot of a brother of . Away from his fistful of aluminum bottles and his near-magical affinity for attracting state troopers at the exact wrong time.
It was great to check the Superbowl box off the bucket list, however, especially given the “down to the wire” exigency of the finale, though I think my stomach could cope better with a blowout (on either team’s part). It was also excellent to do it with family, too… with a guy I’d been going to Giant games with since we were little kids. I’m only disappointed that babies kept two brothers away and Vegas the third, because I think Dad would have liked all of us to be together in these seats I found. Seats that were so eerily close to where we all used to sit in the old stadium… where Dad used to sit.
I had a hellacious day at work today because I’ve really got no time to be taking even weekends off, never mind the odd Superbowl Monday I used for travel and “recovery” yesterday. But things are hopping right now, thanks to this current odd mixture of liquidity and nervousness. A lot of shareholders are taking the money and running these days, deciding discretion is the better part of valor.
But Ben keeps the presses moist and full of fresh green paper, because after all this is an Election Year. And a year when the Giants are Superbowl Champs.
It’s only February, but this really is shaping up to be a magical year already, no?
No position changes today. I might even add tomorrow if the dollar continues to break down, however. My March Madness pick is the previously mentioned AUX gold stock, btw. I hope you will join The PPT to participate.
My best to you all, and thanks for your patience and indulgence.
