Super Bowl this evening, but where are you going to touch down?

LIII. The Roman numerals convey it to be 53. Yet whilst the glory of Rome has faded into the tomes and lore of history, there are remnants of the former empire that continue to pay homage to the maxim of strength, honour and magnificence.

They do battle in modern day colosseums surrounded by ravenous and unrelenting crowds. Although they wield not sword, mace nor spear, they do bear armour and their weapons are their muscled frames.

The roar of the crowd pumps like a heartbeat at the sharp crack of helmet-to-helmet tackles. It’s big hits, bigger plays, one-handed catches and jukes for another ten.

It’s Namath with his finger in the air, Elway flying 360, Montana going 92 yards, Dyson needing one yard, Bettis bussin’ through, the Seahawks not running it, the Falcons squandering the big lead. Oh yes, indeed.

They are the contemporary gladiators and aspire only to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy triumphantly towards the heavens in the name of victory. Warriors unite!

It’s Super Bowl time baby! (CW)
