It's a super something

Express Staff Writer

Okay, it's Super Bowl XXXIX on Sunday, Feb. 6. Get ready for a wild ride when New England takes on Philadelphia in Florida at approximately 3:30 p.m. MST. Well, it may be a wild ride, but Super Bowl games traditionally are not really as much fun or exciting as the games that lead up to the big finish. One may want to look outside for some fun things to liven things up.

But first a run down. With this game New England is on the cusp of winning three Super Bowls in four years, all led by Quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots' inscrutable coach Bill Belichick. But coming in with the big mo is the Philadelphia Eagles led by Donavan McNabb. The Eagles' defensive line is one of the best in the sport along with the Pats'.

The halftime show may not be as surprising as last years, (by the way why wasn't Justin Timberlake bullied for his very obvious participation in the nonsense with Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction?). This year there'll be a show with the proper ex-Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney and understated soul sister Alicia Keys.

Meanwhile there are sales and parties galore around the Wood River Valley. Sun Valley Resort is awash in sales as well as a catered Super Bowl party at the Brass Ranch, a big to-do at the Boiler Room and specials at the Lodge Dining Room and the Ram Restaurant at the end of each quarter. Ketchum Kantina is hosting a party with an all you can eat buffet and the annual Sturtevant's Super Bowl Ladies Day Out sale is on track, all day.

There is even a non-Super Bowl wine special, with no TV to be found, at CK's in Hailey.

Or you could just ski.
