Captain's Log: Stardate 11010.4
Last night marked my third annual Starship Super Bowl Spectacular, where several members of the Enterprise crew come over to my captain's quarters and watch the big game on the big screen.

It certainly was great seeing some members of the team again, including Captain Dave, Lt. June and Ensign Kurt. June brought some wine (not in a box,) Kurt brought some cheesy snacks and fruit with hummus, and Dave brought some brownies.

Upon seeing the brownies, I asked if they were "funny" brownies. Dave quickly replied that they were not, but then wondered why everyone asks him that, trying to figure out what was it about him that gave off the marijuana-brownie vibe. I don't know, maybe it was some of those Wednesday night spinnaker jibes last year. Oh well, one more excuse we can't use.

Lt. Zoraida canceled last minute because Steve was really sick and "won't see a doctor until he coughs up a lung." Better than me, though -- I'd try and swallow the lung back down again before seeing a doc.

Say it all together now - Ewwwwwwwwww!

During the worst lineup of commercials in Super Bowl history, we discussed the Enterprise, how The Who's Roger Daltrey looks a lot like Lt. Jonathan plus 15 years or so, and Commander Richard's latest cardiovascular adventures, most likely moving him to the position of rail meat (would that be considered aged rail meat?) for the 2010 season and beyond.

At least not all the commercials were bad - there was Betty White playing football, the man's no-longer-compromise Dodge Charger spot and, my personal favorite, the E-Trade baby's "milka-wha?" girlfriend.

The game itself was exciting, with the Colts coming on strong for the first quarter and then taking a beating in the third and fourth. I'm disappointed - not so much because I was rooting for the Colts, but because we may be stuck hearing the phrase "Who Dat?" for several more weeks.

Plans are now being formulated for the Enterprise Ski Weekend and the North U. Trim Seminar in Stamford (of which several Enterprise crew will be attending.)

And, despite the frigid temps outside, I do get some warmth in knowing racing is only three months away.
