Did anyone watch the super bowl? I think I have become a cynic since the Penn State horrors. I can't watch a sports event without wondering how many people were sexual assaulted to get the winning team to the top position. Does anyone else have these kind of thoughts?

Oh goodness.... I can't say that I have had that type of response. Bad people are out there, no one will dispute that. But to let them and their actions impact every aspect of your life... well, that's just giving them way too much power, in my mind.

I didn't watch it and I don't really have that particular thought.   I really don't know much about any of the players and whether any of them have ever been accused of any type of sexual misconduct.
