I had to stand up to some very strong willed boys, and their current success in life tells me I did a pretty good job. They got told plenty when I felt they were doing something wrong.
I just think it is ridiculous to have the attitude that one would not be happy with a sloppy Super Bowl win. I stood on the sidelines as a sports photographer for 8 years of High School games. As a female of my generation, I obviously never played the game. But being on the sidelines and witnessing up close and personal the physicality of the game and the emotions of the players, I would never discount a win.
I may view my role as a fan differently than yours, but it is dismissive to tell me that I am a mom who can tell my children no wrong. I guess I need to go back to the cooking forum. There is a huge battle going on over range feed vs grocery store eggs.
Please do not "go back to cooking forum." I enjoy exchanging ideas with you. We do not have to agree. I made the mom comment as I cannot recall ever reading anything of you being critical of a Texan.
As to your comment about being happy with a sloppy SB win...if that game was only sloppy one all season, I of course would accept it BUT would discuss the areas needing improvement with Texans fans in my social world and this MB.
