Stuff is happening around the world, much of it serious, but my sights are fixed on a couple of football (American) semi-final matches:
The New England Patriots vs. the Kansas City Chiefs at 6:40 p.m. eastern and the Los Angeles Rams vs. the New Orleans Saints at 3:05 p.m. Or anyway, I think I've got that right. The winners will match up in the Feb. 3 Super Bowl.
I only hope there are enough cholesterol-laden snacks around the house to carry me through ... not to mention the attention span: When a game is a blow-out and you feel it, there is a tendency to switch to some ditzy Disney sitcom.
Anyway, so much for my high-brow plans for the day.
Hope everyone is cozy.
