Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday! Super Bowl LIV with the SF 49ers playing the KC Chiefs. What do you want to see????

1) Colin Kaepernick comes off the bench for the Chiefs and beats the 49ers. Then he kneels in the end zone after scoring the winning TD.
2) The Kitten Bowl.
3) Great commercials! Like the Super Bowl XLV from VW, the Darth Vader kid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n6hf3adNqk
4) Another wardrobe malfunction.
5) A convincing 49ers win!!!
6) A good close game. That's all I ever want from the Superbowl.
7) Doritos commercial with Sam Elliott and Lil Nas X

Speaking of nat'l holiday, there's a movement afoot to move the game to Saturday, so that fewer people feign being sick on Monday and miss work.

3) Qlive and Viqlet

We thought Olive and Violet are such lovely names, but Q is a sadly underused letter. Baby lambs, pronounced Clive and Viclet..

Names you would give/have given a pet, A-M

It's just one of the Baker's Dozen conventions. Not sure when it started.

To start an unordered list, you could lead off like so:
Names you would give/have given a pet, A-M

1)
2)
3)
4) Dusty Rose

... leaving 1, 2, and 3 to be filled in by others.
