“GIVING MEANS LIVING” FACEBOOK APP DESIGNED TO HELP ORGAN DONATION AWARENESS Pop Star Justin Bieber and NFL Star Tom Brady inspiration for organ donation Facebook app. Over 100,000 North Americans are currently waiting for a lifesaving call about organ donations. Sadly many never get the call and pass away before a suitable organ donation is found. Thanks to the efforts of the innovative website mysendoff.com, there is now a free Facebook app called “Giving Means Living” that will raise awareness of the importance of organ donations. The “Giving Means Living” app allows Facebook members to document and share their organ donation wishes with family and friends. According to donatelife.net, nearly 90% of North Americans support organ donation, but only 30% actually take the necessary steps to agree to it and document their wishes. With the new “Giving Means Living” app people now have an easy way to express their organ donation wishes to Facebook friends and the app also offers links to organ donor registration sites in North America. Colin Firth, founder of mysendoff.com, observed “Giving Means Living” is designed to get people thinking, communicating and encouraging them to commit to donating their organs so that others may live. If we can help even one person waiting for an organ donation or eliminate the waiting list then we believe our efforts will be worthwhile.” Explaining why the app was developed Firth says, “We decided to add our efforts to organ donation awareness after pop music star Justin Bieber and NFL Quarterback Tom Brady recently lent their voices

to help friends in need of organ donations. We felt that the power and reach of Facebook could also be used to help build awareness of such a critical and important issue.” The “Giving Means Living” app is an easy to use social contract. Facebook members simply click on the app and choose which organs they wish to donate and click to post on their Wall. The “Giving Means Living” donation instructions will be displayed on the member’s Wall and shared with Facebook friends. Every person can save up to 10 lives with their organ donor agreement, which is essentially a gift of life to others. Notable celebrities who have gone on to lead productive lives after receiving organ donations

include Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, baseball great Mickey Mantle, comedian George Lopez and millions of other North Americans who are now living because of others’ giving. Mysendoff.com hopes that by making the “Giving Means Living” app available to Facebook’s 175 million North American users, they will choose to engage, help reduce and ideally eliminate the organ donor waiting list. The first step is to communicate and share their organ donation wishes with family and friends. More information on the “Giving Means Living” campaign and Facebook app can be found at www. facebook.com/mysendoff Law & Accounting Offices Of

The Cocoa Family Foundation presents an evening of chocolate and wine at The Center Club in Orange County on Friday, February 10th. Many varieties of cocoa will be paired with wine: starting with cocoa beans and roasted nibs, then moving to pretempered and ready to eat dark and milk chocolate. The proceeds from the event will benefit cocoa farmers and education them in becoming sustainable, improving their livelihoods, assisting with the Organic and Fair-Trade certi-

fication process and helping address the worst forms of child labor in the cocoa growing communities. “When a product is titled Organic, it may not be, unless there is traceability and transparency for the source,” states communications director Fior Garcia. “We help companies set in place an independent and credible system of farm monitoring, certification and verification for their suppliers.” “While guests experience cocoa in all it’s various forms – cocoa beans, fermented cocoa nibs, pre-tempered

and post tempered chocolate, they will also support our efforts to stop the worst forms of forced child labor and help to create sustainable farming practices in the cocoa community,” says Mrs. Garcia. The event will take place on Friday, February 10th, 2012 6PM – 9:30PM at The Center Club in Orange County - 650 Town Center Dr., Costa Mesa, CA 92626. Price: $15 Early registration, $25 at the door.

GRAMMY-WINNING SONGSTRESS­­­—ROBERTA FLACK— SINGS HER TOP HITS FOR PACIFIC SYMPHONY POPS Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Pacific Symphony fills the hall with sumptuous, romantic love songs featuring legendary vocalist Roberta Flack singing sweet and sultry ballads from her chart-topping career. Internationally hailed as one of the greatest songstresses of her generation, Flack effortlessly traverses a broad musical landscape from pop to soul to folk to jazz. One of only two artists to win back-to-back Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Flack has immortalized the songs, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Killing Me Softly with His Song,” which she performs along with such hits as “Where Is the Love,” “Tonight I Celebrate My Love” and more. Led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, the concert takes place Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 9-11, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. The concert’s first half features Cody Morgan—last year’s winner of the Symphony’s amateur singing competition “OC Can You Sing?”— performing timeless love songs from Broadway, including his winning rendition of “If Ever I Would Leave You” from “Camelot.” Backed by the orchestra, he performs “My Funny

Valentine” from “Babes in Arms,” “If I Can’t Love Her” from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “Who Can I Turn To?” from “The Roar of the Greasepaint­—The Smell of the Crowd.” The orchestra also performs the Main Title from “Star Wars” and “Gonna Fly Now,” the theme from “Rocky.” Tickets are $25-$160. For more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. Classy, urbane, reserved, smooth and sophisticated — all of these terms have been used to describe the music of Flack, particularly her string of romantic, light jazz ballad hits in the 1970s, which continue to enjoy popularity on adult contemporary stations. Unparalleled in her ability to tell a story through her music, her songs bring insight into people’s lives, loves, culture and politics. Her sentimental lyrics and smoky vocals create a heartwarming concert experience for sweethearts to share this time of year. “This will be a very special Valentine’s celebration for Pops,” says Kaufman. “Not only will Roberta Flack create a memorable musical experience for our audience, but the winner of “OC Can You Sing,” Cody Morgan,

joins us to sing great songs from the Broadway stage. Broadway has given us so many memorable songs, and many of them speak of romance; Cody will bring several of these wonderful songs to life. And to top it off, we’ll present a short 80th birthday tribute to the one and only John Williams.” Classically trained on the piano from an early age, Flack received a music scholarship at age 15 to attend Howard University. Discovered while singing at the Washington nightclub Mr. Henry’s by jazz musician Les McCann, she was promptly signed to Atlantic Records. In 1999, she aptly received a Star on Hollywood’s legendary Walk of Fame. Flack regularly plays to appreciative audiences around the world, and had the pleasure of appearing recently with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, conducted by Marvin Hamlisch, and in February 2009, performed with critically acclaimed orchestras in Australia. Flack is currently involved with an interpretive album of Beatles’

classics titled “Let It Be Roberta,” to be released Feb. 7. The Thursday, Feb. 9, concert is sponsored by U.S. Bank. The Friday, Feb. 10, concert is sponsored by Dan Smith. The Symphony’s Pops series receives additional support from The Westin South Coast Plaza, American Airlines, K-Earth 101 and PBS SoCal. “Love is a song, sing it!” — Roberta Flack

LEADERS CELEBRATE COMPLETION OF COUNTYWIDE RAIL SAFETY UPGRADES OCTA leaders along with local, state and federal officials on Wednesday welcomed the completion of safety upgrades along 52 rail crossings throughout Orange County at a ceremony in Anaheim. Board Chairman Paul Glaab and Board Directors Lorri Galloway and Carolyn Cavecche joined OCTA CEO Will Kempton to participate in the event along with Orange County Business Council President and CEO Lucy Dunn, California Acting Secretary of the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency Traci Stevens, Operation Lifesaver President Pete Aadland and Federal Railroad Administration’s Ron Ries. “I applaud Orange County for taking a proactive approach to enhancing rail safety,” Ries said. “OCTA’s combination of infrastructure improvements at the rail crossings and actively reaching out to the public and teaching them how to be safe along the tracks is a model approach for Page 6

counties across the nation.” Dunn emphasized the importance of having an improved infrastructure to ensure long-term economic strength. “Ensuring a prosperous future for our residents and businesses requires improving our transportation network,” Dunn said. “Areas throughout the state are investing in enhanced safety equipment at railroad crossings, but none compare to the collaborative and extensive rail safety program OCTA undertook.” The $85-million project involved making safety upgrades on 52 crossings in eight cities throughout the county. Upgrades to th e c r o s s i n g s i n c l u d e a dditional gate crossing arms for motorists and pedestrians, new medians, coordinated traffic signals and additional signage and devices to better warn people of passing trains. Safety upgrades to the crossings also make the cities eligible to apply for quiet zone status. Trains in the quiet zones refrain

from sounding their horns except in situations where potential danger may be ahead. “The improvements allow for the continued expansion of Metrolink while ensuring our communities are safe and residents aren’t routinely disrupted by train horns,” Glaab said. “Even during these tough economic times, OCTA is working to provide viable transportation alternatives

and implement pioneering programs to benefit our community.” With the anticipation of greater Metrolink train service in the future, the enhanced rail crossings allow trains to run more frequently while giving local residents and businesses along the corridor peace and quiet as well as better safety features to protect everyone living and working in those areas.Inpra,

SUPER BOWL XLVI NEW ENGLAND VS NEW YORK IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CHOWDER

New England By Gary Burkard The rain has finally stopped in San Francisco.We are down to the final two teams. On February 5th, 2012 the New England Patriots will face the New York Giants in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI. There is always something special in the emotion of the day when these two cities meet in a sports championship. There is a rivalry that is so strong it almost seems irrational. It can be the Yankees playing the Red Sox. Years ago it was the Knicks playing the Celtics. It even goes beyond the sports arena. Theses two cities have contributed so much to American history. They have given us the essence of Americana.

New England and New York really are very similar places, as are the teams that represent them. Let’s compare how these two cities stack up in six non-football areas. Call it the “Chowder Bowl”. We start with political history: New York has produced 6 presidents so far: Van Buren (8), Fillmore (13), Arthur (21), Cleveland (22 & 24), T. Roosevelt (26), and F. Roosevelt (32). On the other hand Boston has produced 4: John Adams (2) J.Q. Adams (6), Coolidge (30), and Kennedy (35). Being that they are actually the New England Patriots we will give them New Hampshire native son Pierce (14) for a total of 5. Edge: New York In New York the oldest bar is supposedly McSorely’s Tavern at 15E 7th street. Opened in 1854. It’s a national historical landmark. From it’s floor covered in saw dust to it’s ceiling, where you will find old poultry wishbones, said to have been hung by soldiers leaving for the first World War. In Boston at 45 Union Street you will find the “Bell in Hand”. It is said to have been in business since 1795. Opened by Jimmy Wilson, Boston’s

last known town crier. He was one of the first to report on the Boston tea party. Edge: New England For higher eduction we have from New York, Columbia University and Princeton (actually in N.J. but then again so are the Giants). In New England you have Yale and Harvard. Edge: New England For food you have Boston baked beans which are cooked with molasses and salt pork. This hearty specialty was responsible for Boston getting the nickname “Bean Town”. For the epicurious in New York, travel on down to 205 Houston Street , Katz’s deli.Order the pastrami on rye. Say no more. Edge: New York For dessert in 1856 at the Parker House in Boston hotel Chef Sanzain came up with the “Boston cream pie”. Ninety years later at Junior’s restaurant in downtown Brooklyn Chef Eigel Peterson perfected the delightful “Junior’s cheese cake.” On the dessert under card New England brings us Ben and Jerry’s ice cream against the timeless, soda shop classic “New York Egg Cream.” Edge:even

Manhattan

So picking the winner of this game finally comes down to chowder. New England or Manhattan. As the story goes it was when tomato chunks were added to the New England chowder there was such a local uproar that in 1939 a law passed in Boston banning the tomato from the New England chowder recipe. Meanwhile back at New York’s Fulton Fish market tomato chunks had been used in Fulton Fish chowder since 1930. That practice continued and the Fulton fish chowder became known as it is called today, Manhattan style.They both are delicious. It is simply a matter of taste. As for the football game, based on the above chowder facts we can conclude that the winning team will be in a red, white and blue uniforms. The blue came from whoever threw the overalls in Mrs. Murphy’s chowder.

INAUGURAL GALA FOR NEGU NETS $100K FOR LITTLE GIRL’S DREAM The St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort and Spa was the setting for the first annual “NEGU” Gala where over 500 attendees enjoyed a fabulous dinner, an exciting silent auction, a very competitive live auction and then a stunning performance by two time Grammy nominee John Tesh. “NEGU” is the acronym for Never Ever Give Up, the motto for young Jessie Rees, a caring 12 year old girl who was fighting two inoperable brain tumors. Jessie’s wish was to deliver the NEGU message to every kid fighting cancer in the United States so they can stay strong and never ever give up. The NEGU Foundation is all about “encourage-care” for patients and their parents so no one stands alone. The evening was stellar; the grand ballroom was set with colors of blue and white with exquisite table displays and décor, even the guests were dressed to impress. The VIP reception had guests enjoying passed hors d’oeuvres and adult libations while perusing the silent auction items. Opportunity tickets were also for sale for items to win that were favorites of young Jessie. Along with the party atmosphere, Artist Tom Clark gave a LIVE performance creating a mural with the NEGU logo that was quite impressive. But those that were there came to support the NEGU Foundation, the Rees family and of course to hear John Tesh. Opening the show was The Tony Guerrero Quintet playing sounds of classic jazz. Tesh took the stage with his current touring big band and sang songs such as “I’ve got the World On A String”, “Blue Skies”, “L-O-V-E” and other Great American Song Book classics. This was more than just a concert as guests were drawn to the dance floor and were able to dance while enjoying the smooth sounds of the soulful crooner. A special surprise for Austin Gatus (a Leukemia survivor); he performed the NEGU theme song he wrote especially for Jessie and played a duet with Tesh. Chairing the event was Eric Reese, Jessie’s father. The committee consisted of Rick Brotherton, Donna Tomlinson, Toni Andrews, Michelle Danley, Gina Crofts, Laura Reagan, Stacey Woodhart, Bonnie Taylor, Shawn O’Connell, and Rob Vetter who worked tirelessly to put this gala together. Ronnie Andrews from Clarient welcomed everyone and thanked those who have supported NEGU as well as those sponsors who gave of their time and money. Clarient, UPS, Brotherton Communications, Grover Family Foundation, Hard Hatt Construction, Tuttle Click, Signet Media Group, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, MFS Investment Management, SGL and the St. Regis Resort and Spa were just a few who helped make the evening happen. George Willis, President of Operations for UPS in North America spoke about their involvement and why they got involved with NEGU. Two special presentations were made, one for the Courageous Kids Awards and the other for the Compassionate Kids Awards. The three who received the Courageous Kids medals, Austin Gatus, Isabella Nordrum, and Cade Spinello received their medals for their fight against cancer. The Compassionate Kids Medal went to Mandy Barnes, Jenny Formica, and Hannah Gammon for their efforts helping kids fight cancer. After dinner, the LIVE auction began. Bidders were strong especially when it came to some of the items that were up for grabs; a St. Regis dinner and wine tasting for 10 people; 4 tickets to the American Idol Season Finale with a limo and dinner at Eva Longoria’s restaurant “Beso”; St. Regis Presidential Suite and Spa package for two; a Labrador retriever Puppy; NCAA Final Four tickets; Hawaii vacation at the Aloha Marriott Wailea Beach Resort and Spa and a Magical Disney Experience at Disneyland Resort with about $40,000 coming from these exciting items. All in all, over $100,000 was brought in for the newly formed foundation Page 10

FIVE MOST MEMORABLE PLAYS IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY By Aaron Smith There is no bigger stage in all of sports. Fans from all over the world tune in to watch the Super Bowl. This is a game where great players become legends and good teams take the next step and become championship-level teams. As Super Bowl XLVI quickly approaches, I wanted to take a look big at the biggest plays in the history of the Super Bowl. There are so many great plays that it is hard to pick just five, but I’ve put together a list of five plays that top the list of most memorable plays in the history of the Super Bowl.

#5 Juggling Reception 5. Super Bowl X- Lynn Swann’s Juggling Catch: Lynn Swann put on a show in Super Bowl X, and he was named the Most Valuable Player of the game. It was his juggling 53-yard reception that will go down as one of the best plays in the history of this huge game. Swann tipped the ball to himself and was somehow able to catch it while falling to the ground. This catch proved to be crucial as the Steelers edged the Cowboys 21-17.

#4 ten-yard touchdown to John Taylor

4. Super Bowl XXIII- Montana to Taylor: The Cincinnati Bengals were in control after taking the lead with just over three minutes left, but the San Francisco 49ers had plenty left in the tank. Joe Montana was already nicknamed “Joe Cool”, and he showed exactly why as the 49ers went on a 92-yard scoring drive to beat Cincinnati in the last minute. It was a ten-yard touchdown to John Taylor in back of the end zone with 39 seconds left that sealed the deal for San Francisco.

3. Super Bowl XLIII- Harrison Rumbles for 100 Yards: The Arizona Cardinals appeared ready to take a 14-10 lead into halftime over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but James Harrison had other ideas. The clock ran out while Harrison was running it back, which meant if he didn’t take it all the way back the Steelers would get no points out of this amazing play. Some terrific blocking and amazing running by a big linebacker resulted in Harrison sliding into the end zone just before Larry Fitzgerald tackled him. This play was a 14 point swing

#3 Harrison Rumbles for 100 Yards

#1 Mike Jones Tackle in a game that was decided in the 1. Super Bowl XXIV- Mike Jones last minute. Tackle: The St. Louis Rams led 2316 with ten seconds left when Steve 2. Super Bowl XLII- David Tyree’s McNair delivered a strike on a slant Helmet Catch: The Patriots looked as pattern to Kevin Dyson.

THE GREAT PICTURE: THE WORLD’S LARGEST PHOTOGRAPH The Legacy Project exhibition, The Great Picture: The World’s Largest Photograph & The Legacy Project, has been extended through February 26. This multimedia exhibition tells the compelling story of how six artist/photographers and their friends came together to build what the Guinness Book of World Records acknowledges as the “world’s largest pinhole camera” (also known as a Camera Obscura) at the Orange County Great Park. The exhibition documents how the Legacy Project artists activated their gigantic camera to create the world’s largest photograph. The Legacy Project is a component of the Great Park’s burgeoning artists-in-residence program and comprises Mark Chamberlain, Jacques Garnier, Rob Johnson, Douglas McCulloh, Clayton Spada and the late Jerry Burchfield. The Great Picture was created in an F-18 hangar at the decommissioned Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro in 2006 before the military base began to transition into the Orange County Great Park. When fully unfurled, this landmark photographic achievement is three stories tall, eleven stories wide. In addition to The Great Picture itself, displayed on an oversize spindle resting in its gigantic shipping crate, this exhibition -- curated by Tyler Stallings, Artistic Director of the Culver Center of the Arts & Director of the Sweeney Art Gallery at University of California, Riverside -- features related site-specific Legacy Project photographs, videos, installations and a MCAS El Toro sonic environment by JeanPaul Garnier.

The exhibition is open Thursdays and Fridays noon to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. A special walk-in camera obscura (pin hole camera), created by The Legacy Project as a permanent installation in the Great Park’s Artists Studio building, is available for visitors to experience on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. The Great Picture: The World’s Largest Photograph & The Legacy Project was organized by

Sweeney Art Gallery & Culver Center of the Arts, University of California, Riverside, and curated by Tyler Stallings. Major support for traveling the exhibition to the Great Park Gallery has been provided by The Orange County Great Park Corporation, The Legacy Project, UCR’s College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and the City of Riverside. The Orange County Great Park is located off the 5 or 405 freeway at Sand Canyon and Marine Way in Irvine. For more information please visit www. ocgp.org or call 949-724-OCGP.

CHART TOPPING TRUMPETER RICK BRAUN TO GUEST ON “BREAKFAST WITH GARY & KELLY Saddleback College radio station KSBR 88.5FM and the City of Mission Viejo are proud to announce that the “Breakfast with Gary and Kelly” radio for TV broadcast continues its second year with guest Rick Braun on Saturday, February 11th.  The Saturday morning radio show will broadcast LIVE starting at 9:00am from the Norman P. Murray Community Center, 24932 Veterans Way in Mission Viejo.    A studio audience will be welcomed in for the 10:00 am to 12 pm show; doors will open at 9:00 am with the final hour being videotaped for later broadcast.  The program airs on the City of Mission Viejo’s MVTV Channel 30 every Tuesday through Sunday evenings at 8:30 and also airs on Saddleback College’s SCTV Channel 39 each Friday and Sunday morning at 11:00 throughout the Cox Communication cable system in south Orange County. The audience will be admitted for free but seating is limited.  Reservations can be made online at www.ksbr.org Rick Braun’s debut solo release, “Intimate Secrets”, immediately established him as one of the leading voices of contemporary jazz. His popularity in smooth-jazz circles con-

tinued to snowball with albums like 1994’s “Night Walk” and 1997’s “Body and Soul”. In 2000 Braun and saxophonist Boney James collaborated on “Shake It Up”, and in 2001 Braun made his Warner Bros. debut with “Kisses in the Rain”. The following year saw the release of “Groovin’”, by the contemporary-jazz supergroup BWB (Braun with guitarist Norman Brown and saxophonist Kirk Whalum). In 2005, Braun and saxophonist Richard Elliot formed their ARTizen Music Group and released the joint project “RnR” in 2007. On his latest, “Sings With Strings” (Artistry), Braun reveals an engaging vocal style on a program of Great American Songbook favorites. Produced by Philippe Saisse, “Sings With Strings” places Braun in the pantheon of jazz trumpeters who exhibited impressive pipes along with considerable instrumental prowess—a club including the likes of Chet Baker, Jack Sheldon, Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie, Hot Lips Page, Kermit Ruffins and the greatest of them all, Louis Armstrong. Past guests on “Breakfast with Gary & Kelly” have included Debbie Reynolds, Linda Evans, Peter White, Diane Schuur, Bobby Caldwell, Paul

Brown, Warren Hill, Bill Cantos and more.   Gary and Kelly have conducted numerous remote broadcasts from locations all over Southern California, including the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach and Catalina Island and they have hosted many celebrity guests.

IS ELI MANNING ONE OF THE TOP 20 QUARTERBACKS OF ALL TIME? By Matthew Smith Is Eli Manning one of the top 20 quarterbacks of all time? Based on Super Bowl appearances he will be. When Eli Manning starts Super Bowl XLVI vs. the New England Patriots, he will become one of only 19 quarterbacks in NFL history to start more than one Super Bowl. If he wins the game he will become only the 11th NFL quarterback in history to win at least two Super Bowls. If Manning and the New York Giants win Super Bowl XLVI, Manning will match the number of Super Bowl wins of NFL Hall of Famer quarterbacks John Elway, Roger Staubach, Bob Griese, and Bart Starr. Only four NFL quarter backs have three or more Super Bowl wins in NFL history. Eli Manning’s opponent in Super Bowl XLV, the Patriots’ Tom Brady, is one of the four NFL quarterbacks with three or more Super Bowl wins. Tom Brady will be going for his fourth Super Bowl win in Super Bowl XLVI. If the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl, Tom Brady will tie Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw with a record four Super Bowl Championships. That is enough about Brady. There is no doubt that he is one of the top 20

quarterbacks of all time. He is a twotime NFL MVP, he has won the Super Bowl MVP three times, he has had seven Pro Bowl appearances, and he has several NFL records. His spot in the top 10 quarterbacks of all time is secure. The only debate concerning Brady is his ranking among the top 10 quarterbacks ever to play the game. Eli Manning on the other hand is not even considered to be the best Manning in NFL history. His brother Peyton Manning has much better individual stats than Eli. The only noteworthy stat that Eli Manning has ever led the league in is interceptions. He did that twice, and most recently in 2010. Despite the interceptions, Eli’s stats are improving. With that said, he still has a lot of work before he can crack the top 20 quarterbacks of all time based on individual accomplishments. Looking at Eli Manning’s numbers this far into his career, the 30-yearold Manning will never will crack the top 20 quarterbacks of all time based on individual statistics. He is simply outclassed when compared to Tom Brady and his brother Peyton, but that is not anything to be ashamed of. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning

are the best two quarterbacks of this forget about his statistics and say, era. Eli could string together a few “Eli Manning, all that he does is win good years and a few Super Bowl Super Bowls.” championships. Maybe everyone will

TOM BRADY WILL MATCH JOHN ELWAY IN SUPER BOWL STARTS Time brings a lot of things along for the ride, a crease or two in the brow, perhaps some gray around the temples and a lot more perspective. Looking back, five seems to be a more impressive number now than when former Broncos star John Elway lived it as a player. For now, Elway is the only quarterback in NFL history with five Super Bowl starts. That changes next Sunday in Indianapolis when New England Patriots star Tom Brady joins him. “It’s kind of nice to look back on it now and you see how difficult it has been since (Brady), he’s the only other one,” Elway said last week. “To get to five of those, that’s really hard. “I’m not sure you realize that at the time, especially early in your career if you get to a Super Bowl. You’re young, so you kind of lose your perspective a little bit.” Elway helped lead the Broncos to three Super Bowls in a four-season span, from 1986 to 1989. The Broncos lost all three NFL title games, to the New York Giants (39-20), Washington Redskins (42-10) and San Francisco 49ers (55-10). Those trips to the Super Bowl came at the end of Elway’s fourth, fifth and seventh Page 18

seasons in the league. It took Elway, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, and the Broncos eight years to get back to the Super Bowl. Armed with a strong running game fueled by Terrell Davis, the Broncos were NFL champions in the 1997 and 1998 seasons. Elway retired after being named the MVP of his last game, Super Bowl XXXIII. “We had three trips out of four years at one point,” Elway said. “When you are younger, you think that’s how it’s going to be. But then you wait, and that’s when you realize what it really means because during those eight years you feel like it might not happen again. So, for what Tom and the Patriots have done is really a testament to the kind of player he is.” Brady is the league’s ultimate competitor. The Patriots were a flawed team for much of this season, finishing 31st in total defense and struggling enough in their secondary that veteran coach Bill Belichick used wide receivers as defensive backs. And yet the Patriots are 15-3 and have a 10-game winning streak entering Super Bowl XLVI against the Giants. It’s a rematch of the Super Bowl played four years ago. “He’s Tom Brady. That’s all you can

say,” said Champ Bailey, an 11-time Pro Bowl cornerback whose Broncos were beaten 45-10 by Brady and the Patriots in the AFC semifinals this season. Brady threw six touchdown passes. “He’s been around the block a few times and if you’re not ready to punch him in the mouth, he’s going to eat you up all night,” Bailey said. Brady fits the profile of a three-time Super Bowl winner. He’s at the top of his profession and has enough talent around him to consistently get to the playoffs. He wins with his skill and with his composure. Elway had to pull off “The Drive” in Cleveland to get to his first Super Bowl. And to return to the Super Bowl, Elway had to overcome injuries to himself and to teammates. He had to persevere through seasons that didn’t end the way he had hoped. Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2008. He was injured in the season opener that year and didn’t play again until a year later. Four seasons ago, Brady and the Patriots were 18-0 when they lost

Super Bowl XLII to the Giants 17-14. “When you lose playoff games, it’s a very bitter feeling, and it sits in your mind for quite a long time,” Brady said. “That’s the reason guys are here — to win.” Said Elway of Brady: “Obviously he’s a guy, having that kind of a career to get to that many Super Bowls, who’s a great player on a great team. He’s usually a big reason why they got there. Not only a great quarterback, but a good guy. I’m happy for him.”
