Monday Morning Quarterback

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, it's monday morning and I want my quarter back. That Superbowl was a rip off. There weren't even any CATS in the commercials.

KATIE:  Waffles,  it's QUARTERBACK. Not quarter back. 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said.  I want my quarter back. That's like a whole half of my allowance. 

KATIE:  Waffles, the quarterback is the guy that throws the football. 

WAFFLES:  How about a dime? Can I at least get a dime back? A nickel?

KATIE:  Waffles, for the last time! The quarterback doesn't have anything to do with money. 

WAFFLES:  That's not what I heard. I heard he makes LOTS of money. He's probably got TONS of quarters, so I want mine back.

KATIE:  That's not how it works.

WAFFLES:  Well that's messed up. 

KATIE:  The quarterback throws the ball at the other players so they can score a touchdown. 

WAFFLES:  Touch down? You mean like THIS touch down?

KATIE:  WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!  Flag on the play!  Flag on the play!  Personal foul!!

WAFFLES:  Personal FOWL??? You mean like chicken?

The View from Minneapolis
Yesterday's Super Bowl was in our hometown of Minneapolis, just a few blocks from our downtown apartment. Gloman was in Minneapolis, though enjoyed the game from the comfort of his cushy chair.

A few days ago when he was driving home from work, he noticed four military aircraft flying in formation over downtown. The photographer in him got to thinking, "hey, I wonder if they're practicing for a flyover during the Super Bowl!"

So when game time rolled around, he was ready. 24 floors above the city, the corner window wide open and a big long lens. He knew he'd have to be quick. And sure enough, just as soon as Pink finished the National Anthem, the planes came zooming by, right over the downtown skyline.

That's the Foshay Tower in the foreground. It's one of the oldest buildings to grace the Minneapolis skyline. It was completed in 1929, the same year Glogirly's mom was born. Modeled after the Washington Monument, it's now registered in the National Register of Historic Places as an example of Art Deco architecture.


  1. Gloman did his prep well! Wanna hear something funny? My human didn't even know the Super Bowl was in Minneapolis this year! She had NO idea where it was! MOL

  2. Sounds like Gloman was lucky enough to see the Blue Angels. I live between Chicago and Gary, and when the annual Chicago Air & Water Show is going on, some of the planes use the Gary airport for staging. It's thrilling to see the Blue Angels flying right over our house! At our house today it was all Kitten Bowl and Puppy Bowl. I think the last time I actually watched the Superbowl was when it was Bears vs. Colts and my daughters and I actually drove to St. Louis for a party there! We're just not much into football, I guess.

  3. MOL, I want a quarter back too.

    P.S. We had CHIKKEN for da Super Bowl.

  4. Cool pic! Waffles, let us know if you get your quarter back.

  5. Waffles those quaterbacks probably won’t give you your quarter back. How did they get it anyway? We love Glomans photo of the USAF Heritage team. Did he say if the building shook a little? Z girl grew up near the Naval Academy, and saw some Blue Angels fly overs of the Academy (homecoming football games) and practices over the Potomac River in DC, which were really beautiful and LOUD, but in a truly majestic way! We loved JTs performance with the purple lights throughout the city!
    We hope you and Katie hold onto your money from now on! 😎

  6. Great shot, Gloman ! Did you finally get your quarter back, Waffles ? Purrs

  7. Great photo. I loved the game.

  8. we don't know anything about quarters, but Chanel heard that tackling was involved and got interested. MOL Great picture Gloman!!

  9. Cool photo! And we hope Waffles gets his quarter back. LOL

  10. I thought of Gloman quite a bit during the game!! One of these days I must get to Minneapolis, it looks like such a wonderful city!

  11. Oh Waffles your so cute and funny. Must have been great to actually watch the planes fly over.

  12. Great shot, Gloman! We thought the game was pretty entertaining.

  13. We would want that quarter back too.
    Probably get a lot of treats with it!!
    Great shot by Gloman.
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  14. That is one good shot, Gloman! Never been to Minneapolis, but years ago had a co-worker take a job there and we said, "Whaaat?" Now, I wish I'd gone, too! Heard nothing but good things. Tom says we'll back Waffles for a quarter is he doesn't get it back.- Julie

  15. How cool that Gloman got to actually see the flyover, and have a wonderful seat at home to watch the game.

  16. How fortunate he was in the right place at the right time.

    And Waffles, I have a fifty cent piece you can have.

  17. Funny guys! What a pic Gloman! I love it!
