Let The Games Begin!

I want to pass on my hearty congratulations to the Green Bay Packers for winning Super Bowl XXXVLE-I-E-I-O.  If your team didn't get to play in it (like the Patriots...) then at least there were two teams worth routing for.  The Steelers and Packers have history that goes as far back as the beginning of the NFL.  Would we really care if the Tennessee Titans took on the Carolina Panthers?  So congrats to all the cheese-heads, wherever you are.

With the Super Bowl gone for the year, and baseball season still months away, I feel the need to have more sporting events.  So, I've thought of The Super Bowl of Artists.  I won't be so pretentious as to number my super bowl with roman numerals, so instead I'll use the alphabet.  So here is The Super Bowl Of Artist.a!

Competing first in the Play-Offs are:   Michelangelo vs Pollock!

And the winner is... Michelangelo!  His easy victory moves him on to the next round. 

Okay, next up we have DaVinci vs Picasso-

Geez, another blow-out!  DaVinci takes this one.

Maybe this next match will provide some competition.  We now have Sargent vs Johns:

Nope.  Can't say this one was close either.  John Singer Sargent waltz's away with a sure victory.  So far, we have Michelangelo, DaVinci and Sargent in the semi-finals.  One more match to go.  Which of these next two artists will take on the "Big Three"?

Let's here it for Rockwell vs Munch:

Looks like it'll be... is the suspense killing you?   NORMAN ROCKWELL!

Just like the NFL, these players are going to rest up for awhile to prepare for their next match.  The schedule makers haven't decided on when exactly that may be, but one thing I know for sure is that The Super Bowl Of Artist.a is going to be exciting!

Anybody know where I can get a Norman Rockwell pennant?

that makes me laugh! I am a Steelers fan but can't be too disappointed with the Packers winning.It was a great game. I love baseball and can't wait for the season to start..wish I could afford to go see spring camp games..but I always have a game on. Love the Cleveland Indians and the Rockies. We got to go to 2 Rockies games this past season. So I enjoy your Super Bowl of Artists a. I was thinking Pollock just might take the first round with all of his action..sigh..maybe next year. I have become a real Wyeth fan (yes all 3) they could be a whole team!
