Well, not everyone. (Sniff.)

 

Oh, and in future, no one with a California address will be able to buy tickets to see PNB. (Grrr.)

 

That said --  Beat Denver!

Well, at least you don't have a team in the Superbowl, opposite the closing performance of the SFB Giselle.  It's Denver vs the Lilac Fairy up here -- PNB's got a Sunday matinee on the 2nd.

I remember when the NY Giants were playing in the Super Boal, and I went to a performance of NYCB.  Back then, they had a little set-off area with a pay phone, at least on the upper levels.  I called Sports Phone at every intermission and after the game to find out the score.

Ah, thanks for pointing that out ;). Not a football fan myself, but I dread going to work today. It's hard to see grown men and women cry.

I am looking forward to seeing PNB one day, but ... uh ... definitely will be rooting for Denver against the Seahawks.

Best typo/freudian slip ever!

I wish there was a sarcasm font for websites.  The thread title was meant to be sarcastic:  in Seattle last weekend, almost everyone was in Seahawks regalia, including some dogs, and even people who didn't know the name of the team last November or even that Seattle still had a football team.  At least the team colors are nice and blend into the weather and landscape of sea, sky, and trees.

 

That's not to say there aren't ardent Seahawks and other NFL team fans among PNB dancers:  in the past, they've made their fandom known, even when their team was not competitive (and in places I never knew had football teams.)

The Colorado Ballet has participated in the "United in Orange" support for the Broncos in recent months. Here's a photo showing the ballerina sculptures in front of the downtown Sheraton, with Gil Boggs (the Ballet's Artistic Director) in the center of the front row.

"We are all the 12th Man now."  :) In fairness there isn't much to celebrate when the team isn't competitive. Nice to know Seattle is succumbing to the same sort of lunacy with which San Francisco is familiar when the Niners are doing well.

 

I wish all the best to the fine people of Colorado, Drew, even if I can't pull for their team. Speaking of lunacy, I can only imagine the current degree of Manningmania....

the two states with legal marijuana laws are now participating in the Super Bowl.   And what a bowl it will be!  

 

Do PNB or Colorado Ballet drug test?  I hope not.

We were wondering if perhaps the bet that the governors usually have for this kind of sports event might include some pot edibles.

An acquaintance of mine kitted out his bunny rabbit in a 49ers jersey. More furry Seahawks fans here.

I think I jumped Marketing's gun; this just in:
 

Celebrate the Seahawks AND beautiful ballet with Artistic Director Peter Boal’s amazing ticket offer! 50% OFF tickets to The Sleeping Beauty on Super Boal Sunday, Feb 2 at 1:00! The performance is over at 4:00PM – so if you skedaddle home, you’ll still have time to see the Seahawks win!
