    egh, he has seen more than all of us put together on the forum. I feel bad for his health but not for missing the SB.

    Glad he got to see it. My dad just narrowly missed being able to see XXXI (at least from his recliner).

    He was 80, had done something pretty awesome with his life, had friends and family around him that loved him and got to watch the Packers win Super Bowl XLV...

    Not sure what more you could ask for honestly?

    I'd be okay going under those circumstances.

    RIP
