Nope. The NFL season kicked off last night with the Broncos prevailing over the Super Bowl Ravens on the strength of Peyton Manning's seven (yup, 7) touchdown passes.

 

As for the 49ers, well, it's way too early to tell.

Your right again DAVE but the NFL Season does not start for me until the NINER'S 1st game.

And I'm watching CR beat EEUU in futbol. It's been really fun! (thought maybe there'd be a thread about it, but, nope.) One thing really interesting at the beginning was the singing of the national anthems. US players stood prayerfully, hand over heart, no one singing. In contrast, only one player had his hand over his heart for the CR anthem and the entire stadium -- players included -- sang, and not solemnly, but with great joy.

 

(And enjoy your football ...)

 

regards,

Gayle

After Gayle's comment just above and just for what it's worth, here is a link to the Himno Nacional de Costa Rica with subtitles:

 

Himno Nacional de Costa Rica [con letra]

 

For me it has quite a moving lyric, but I didn't post a translation cuz there are plenty of them searchable online.

 

If you click on 'show more' the lyrics are also available below the video.

 

Regards,

Gayle, the esposo and I went to a local watering hole to watch the game, and I was the only gringa in the joint. The exuberance from the first 2 goals (bam-bam!) about knocked me out of my chair. The ticos were thrilled to get their revenge for that blizzard game in Denver which they contested, jaja.

Hi Tiffany,

 

IMO, as well they should have! The only thing that would have made it better would have been to watch it in a local bar, even though I'm not much of a drinker. Now THAT would have been fun!

 

regards,

Gayle

 

ps: in my English conversation group this past week, students shyly asked me who I was rooting for, "The United States, right?" And my response was, no, CR is my adopted country and there are cities in the US with a greater population than all of CR. So of course I'm rooting for CR to win.
