Picture of the Day: Highway 61 and the Mississippi

Today’s picture for you takes us far downriver from the Guthrie and Minneapolis, to John Latsch State Park. Frequent viewers of my photos remember that this is the park with the staircase of doom.

Anyway, this is a monochrome shot from the bluff, showing Highway 61 as it parallels the Mississippi. You can also see Wisconsin on the far side of the river in the background.

2010 NFL Season–Championship Round

And so the matchup is set. Titledown versus Steelertown. The Jets Namath Curse kicked in at the beginning, spotting Pittsburgh a 24-0 lead that they couldn’t climb out of, even if they did try. The Packers outlasted three quarterbacks from Chicago, even if they played rather sloppily.
Pittsburgh versus Green Bay. A matchup full of NFL history and tradition, and two pretty darned good teams. I am hoping for another exciting Superbowl. I remember the bad days of the late 80’s and the early to mid 90’s when Superbowls were mostly blowouts. We’ve been lucky the last few years. Here’s hoping that streak continues.
