Congratulations to former Oakland Raiders Head Coach Tom Flores on his selection to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Si se puede!  What took so long?

Just to make H-Town sports fans feel a bit better or maybe not so bad this morning.  Tom Brady was selected like in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft and we didn’t have a NFL team at the time, so we weren’t stupid like 30 other NFL teams that failed to draft him.

GOAT. That’s all you can say about Brady last night.  That’s all. Period.

On the Super Bowl ads.  It was a so-so night.  I will just rattle off the ones that I liked:

Toyota and the para-Olympian won the night.

M&Ms and the Karen line.

Doritos 3D with Mathew McConaughey.

Bud Light Seltzer with the 2020 lemons bombing the sh_t on everyone.

The two Rocket Mortgage pretty sure ads.

Amy Schumer and the Hellman’s Mayo.

Tide and the fella’s face on the T-shirt.

Cheetos of course with Mila and Ashton.

Cadillac with Scissorhands.

Jeep with Bruce Springsteen’s to the Reunited States of America which drove Breitbart nation cwazy.

The Four Seasons Landscape or something like that ad from FIVEsomething.

Commentary was watching “Today” Friday morning, and they had another of those bracket contests.  This one was called Snack-It Bracket, for best Super Bowl snack food.  Nachos beat, err upset wings in the finals.  Carson Daly then went on to explain the history of Nachos and mentioned the fella who came up with the first Nacho dish.  I did not know that.  Here is from Wikipedia:

Nachos originated in the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, just over the border from Eagle Pass, Texas. Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya created nachos at the Victory Club in 1940 when Mamie Finan, a regular customer, asked if Anaya could bring her and three other women a different snack than usual. Anaya went to the kitchen and spotted freshly fried pieces of corn tortillas. In a moment of culinary inspiration, he added melted cheese and pickled jalapeño strips. After tasting the snack, Finan asked what it was called. Anaya responded, “Well, I guess we can just call them Nacho’s Special.” Anaya cut the tortillas into triangles, fried them, added shredded Colby cheese, quickly heated them, added sliced pickled jalapeño peppers, and served them.

Now you know.  I like mine with the chip, refried beans, beef fajitas, melted cheese, and sliced pickled jalapeno.  I also like them individually presented, not everything piled on.

Heading into Valentine’s Day, “Today” show is at it again with a Rom-Com bracket deal.  At least my favorite romantic comedy of all time made the 16 entries. Commentary is talking about “Notting Hill.” It is up against “Overboard” in the first round.

Did you know that in 1977, three Astros stole more than 40 bases each? César Cedeño stole 61, Jose Cruz 44 and Enos Cabell 42.
