good friends

sadly Dayana and i broke up. the positive thing is were still good friends. she had a rough weekend and i never heard from her or even knew she was on until tonight. when we started talking it wasnt the same as before. we both noticed it wasnt the same. we both decided to stay friends and build in that and hopefully havea better relationship down the road. im still hopeful of that.

40 years ag today, the green bay packers beat the kansas city chiefs 35-10 in the first championship game what is now the super bowl. it was then known as the afl/nfl championship game because of the afl that was formed in 1960 and the nfl. the two leagues merged in 1970. the super bowl name came from lamar hunt, the founder of the nfl and the kansas city chiefs, who had seen his kids play with a super ball. the vince lombardi trophy was named after the packers legendary coach. super bowl XLI (41) will be february 4th in miami.
