What a wonderful harmonic convergence of events we had today. As nightfall descends on our humble home sweet home on this Valentine's Day, my sweetheart and I can hear the frogs chirping outside our back window, children quietly playing in the family room. All is right with the world. 

Upon this veritable paradise it seems to me that it is a perfect day. And there is nothing that can quite top it off by sitting on the couch, flipping on the television and watching the Pro Bowl.

But what's this? The Olympics? 60 Minutes? A Nightline 20/20 and a special with Barbara Walters interviewing Miley Cyrus? 

Where is the Pro Bowl?

A quick, horrifying search of the internet delivers the terrible news! I've missed it!! I've missed the Pro Bowl! 

It's always a week after the Super Bowl, What happened? Worse, what am I going to do now for Valentine's Day?

Thank you BUD SELIG, you've done it again.

How am I going to break this to my darling wife? Go to the video sore and rent Xanadu? A poor substitute, I know, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

I'm already planning for next year so there are no mixups.I just got my airline tickets to Dallas. We'll get there on January 29th. 

It's gonna be great!
