GRANDPA DODGES A BULLET
My seven year old son Samuel has become a rabid fan of his home town football team, The San Francisco Forty-Niners. This threatened to pose a problem of major proportions, because if the Niners won their NFC championship game against the Falcons and my team, the New England Patriots, won their AFC championship game against the Baltimore Ravens, as they seemed sure to do, Samuel and I would be rooting for opposing teams in the Super Bowl two weeks from now. Well, the Niners beat the Falcons, but my Patriots, despite being up 13-7 at halftime, managed to lose to Falco and the Ravens. Whew.
