In the spirit of the day

A friend of mine from high school, Robby McLeod, had this to say in passing about Valentine's Day:

"i have a feeling valentines day was cooked up from the people who relaised that the most amount of spousal abuse happens on super bowl sunday, and that the price of roses is double because the rose bowl uses something ridiculous like 20 million roses just a few weeks before, so the supplies are limited.

interesting that football and a hallmark holiday could have such close ties."

That made me chuckle.
