「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

超級碗 XLV 45

超級碗 XLV 45



週一年初四,雖然是假後的一個工作天,但有約在先,我晨早就返工。 因為美國足聯 NFL,每年一度的“超級碗” 在美國的週日二月六日東岸時間黃昏六時許開始,即香港時間七日週一上午比賽。


其實每逢到了新年一月份,到二月份的第一個週日,不止美國體育界焦點,對正 National Football League NFL 的季後賽 Playoffs,連我們的蛇竇,一班思鄉情切的土生美國同事,不停在蛇竇吹水會,沸騰起來。


一方面是因地域地緣關係,各位美國同事,各有捧場,也闘闘牙較,連我們一般非美籍的聽聽埋,都留意一下。況且到了超級碗的美國週日,即香港的週一整個上午,我們都會捱義氣,好讓美國籍同事們專心到美國會所,欣賞一年一度的 NFL 足球盛事。


2011年度,第四十五屆的超級碗,由國聯 NFC 的 綠灣包裝工隊 對 美聯 AFC 的 匹茲堡鋼鐵工隊。 前者只是憑外卡參賽的第六種子,但 Green Bay Packers 綠灣包裝工隊,無畏強隊,一一把冠軍隊殺敗,直闖超級碗。而後者 Pittsburgh Steelers 匹茲堡鋼鐵工隊,卻是美聯東岸北區冠軍,他們把其他的冠軍隊剷平,入到超級碗決賽。


每當我身在北美洲公幹或是旅遊探親,opposing to NHL 冰上曲棍球,我絕少會開電視去收看,但卻很喜歡看 NFL 美式足球比賽,若剛巧在NFL賽季期間,我必會特別抽時間欣賞電視的直播,so far 我碰上超級碗比賽兩次,就更加關注,一早預備好雞腿和小食看電視,皆因比賽時間,必是東岸晚餐時段開始,至西岸晚餐時間完畢。


美式足球的團隊精神,體驗出團結就是力量,個人是渺小的。我的舊文有介紹過 NFL 美式足球:美式足球的團隊精神是美國的縮影﹐一隊中球員各自分工﹐做好本份﹐再由一兩個帶領球隊﹐執行教練團精心策劃的進攻防守計劃﹐再由主教練在緊張時刻﹐當機立斷﹐就如一部機器﹐開足馬力﹐每一個隊員就是機器的一部份﹐利用集體戰勝個體﹐取得最後勝利。

在一個社群裡. 需要有一班默默耕耘的﹐有自知之明的﹐安守本份的﹐做足本份的基層﹐若果個個都要做一哥﹐要做話事人﹐只會變成一盤散沙﹐容易被團結的力量續個擊破。


童謠有得唱:”一枝竹會易折彎,幾枝竹一紮斷折難”﹐中國個人體育成就可人﹐但一到需要一隊人去比賽就瀢不成軍﹐國人應該想一想。 臺海兩岸也是一例!



今屆超級碗的結果是:


國聯 NFC 的 綠灣包裝工隊 31
美聯 AFC 的 匹茲堡鋼鐵工隊 25


【維基百科】Game Summary
After the first three drives of the game ended with punts, Green Bay opened up the scoring with Aaron Rodgers' 29-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, who managed to pull slightly ahead of cornerback William Gay enough to make a leaping catch and fall into the end zone.

Then on the first play after the ensuing kickoff, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was hit by Howard Green as he threw a pass, causing the ball to go well short of his intended target near the left sideline where it was intercepted by Nick Collins and returned 37 yards for a touchdown, giving Green Bay a 14-0 lead.

This time Pittsburgh managed to respond, driving 49 yards in 13 plays including Roethlisberger's 18-yard run on 3rd down and 9. Shaun Suisham finished the drive with a 33-yard field goal to cut the score to 14-3.

Then after forcing a punt, the Steelers drove to midfield, but turned the ball over again when Roethlisberger's pass was intercepted by defensive back Jarrett Bush at the 47. Then Rodgers led the Packers to another score, completing two passes for 20 yards before James Starks' 12-yard run moved the ball to the 21-yard line.

On the next play, Green Bay increased their lead to 21-3 with Rodgers' 21-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings. Taking the ball back with 2:24 left in the second quarter, Pittburgh stormed back, starting with Roethlisberger's 37-yard completion to Antwaan Randle El on their first play.

After that, receiver Hines Ward caught 3 passes for 39 yards on the drive, the last one an 8-yard touchdown catch with just 37 seconds left in the half, making the score 21-10 at halftime. The first half had taken a heavy toll on both teams.

The Steelers lost receiver Emmanuel Sanders to injury, while the Packers lost reciever Donald Driver along with defensive backs Charles Woodson and Sam Shields. Shield would be the only player among them who would return.

Pittsburgh's defense forced Green Bay to punt on the first drive of the second half, and got the ball at midfield thanks to a facemask call on Tom Crabtree while tackling Antonio Brown on the punt return.

The offense then stormed down the field, scoring with just five plays (all runs). First Rashard Mendenhall broke free along with right sideline for a 17-yard run. Then Isaac Redman crashed through the middle for 3 yards, and Roethlisberger ran for 6, bringing up third down and 1.

On the next play, Redman tried to run up the middle, but was held up at the line, so he backed away and ran to the outside for a 16-yard gain to the 8-yard line. Then Mendenhall scored an 8-yard touchdown run on the next play, making the score 21-17.

After forcing a punt, Pittsburgh mounted a drive to the Packers 29-yard line, but Green Bay's defense made a key stand. First Roethlisberger's pass was batted down behind the line by linebacker Clay Matthews.

Then Roethlisberger tried a screen pass to tight end Heath Miller, but Desmond Bishop tackled him for a 3-yard loss. Then on third down Frank Zombo sacked Roethlisberger on the 34, and Suisham's ensuing 52-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, the Steelers lost thier third turnover of the game when Mendenhall fumbled the ball while being tackled behind the line by Matthews. Bishop recovered the ball and returned it 7 yards to the Packers 45.

Five plays later on third down and 10, Rodgers completed a 38-yard pass to Nelson at the Steelers 2-yard line. Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley sacked him for a 6-yard loss on the next play, but he made up for it with a 8-yard touchdown pass to Jennings after that, increasing the Packers lead to 28-17.

But Roethlisberger led the Steelers right back with 6 of 7 completions. After a 9-yard pass to tight end Matt Spaeth, he threw three completions to receiver Mike Wallace for 27 yards to the Green Bay 40-yard line. Then after a 15-yard completion to Ward, he finished the drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Wallace.

Then on the two-point conversion play, Roethlisberger faked a handoff to Mendenhall and ran up to the line before pitching the ball to Randle El, who scored on an outside sweep, cutting the Steelers deficit to 3 points at 28-25.

Green Bay took the ball back with just over 7 minutes left, and found themselves facing third down and 10 after three plays. But Rodgers kept the drive going with a 31-yard completion to Jennings over the middle.

Then Starks ran 14 yards to the Steelers 30. Two plays later, James Jones caught a 21-yard pass at the 8. The Steelers defense managed to keep Green Bay out of the end zone, but Mason Crosby's 23-yard field goal gave them a 31-25 lead with 2:07 left in regulation.

Pittsburgh got the ball back on their own 13-yard line following a penalty on the kickoff. On their first play, Roethlisberger completed a 15-yard pass to Miller. But after a 5-yard reception by Ward, his next three passes were incomplete, turning the ball over and allowing the Packers to run out the rest of the clock.

Nelson was the top receiver of the game with 9 receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown, while also gaining 19 more yards on a kick return. Jennings added 64 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Roethlisberger completed 25 of 40 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns, with 2 interceptions, and ran for 31 yards. His top target was Wallace, who caught 9 passes for 89 yards and a score. Mendenhall was the top rusher of the game with 64 yards and a touchdown.

"童謠有得唱:”一枝竹會易折彎,幾枝竹一紮斷折難”﹐中國個人體育成就可人﹐但一到需要一隊人去比賽就瀢不成軍﹐國人應該想一想。 臺海兩岸也是一例!"

中國的體育成績大都建立在個人或兩個人組合的項目, 個人主義太強, 影響深遠.

嘿嘿兄:沒有特意去看球賽的習慣,那麼這是即慶形式才看球賽喇!

兄台是隨遇而安的性格嗎?

the inner space said...

macy 姐:中國除了郎平時代的女排,連續幾年贏過隊際的比賽,其他的隊際賽奪標的寥寥可數,偶有佳作而爾!

李娜孫甜甜鄭潔晏紫的網球雙打組合拆夥了,李娜自己單獨參賽,個人得到之前的澳網女子單打亞軍!

對!中國人的教育,則重推崇個人成功,而忽略集團成功的重要性。由小學中學都沒有或甚少teamwork 的訓練,等到大學就算有 team work group function 等等 project,但性格塑造已成,不易改變,還不忘爭功,爭做大佬阿姐,要做 leader,否則就攪破壞,變成一盤散沙! 哀哉!

Macy 姐讓令公子參加兒童欖球賽,有沒有學到團隊精神呢?

欖球運動重視團隊合作, 的確可以訓練小朋友的團隊精神, 包括進攻防守時的分工, 也包括隊友之間的關懷和包融, 一人做錯, 整隊受罰; 一人跌倒, 其他人就要幫助扶他起來.

Macy 姐:可惜有這識見的家長不多,小孩子就算在球隊中學習到團隊精神,返到學校又變得孤掌難鳴!

中台兩岸的政治問題很複雜,
不是一枝竹的理論可以搞通,
台灣人不想俾中共統治,
倒轉頭給馬總統去當中國內地嘅領導人又不可能,
夾硬要人家和你合作等如吞併,
叫別人點服氣?
硬道理有時都要看軟環境,
一枝竹哩個說法係次次通,
一本通書睇唔到老的!

the inner space said...

新鮮兄:台灣每次花幾百億美元,送錢給美國佬,買些obsoleted的武器,上次射飛彈表演,連馬英九都要出聲,說是不理想。 美國佬拿著兩岸矛盾,大做無本生意,把準備拆卸銷毀的過期貨賣給台灣,這些過期貨,根本不能抵抗大陸,北京只是畀面,暫時不攻台灣。最近大陸派位仁兄去台灣派紅包,已經是很好的實例。 台灣人無非想多要紅包啫,有何骨氣傲氣可談,與其送錢給美國佬,不如分畀啲反對統一的人,幾百億美元兌回新台幣,褶都褶死班台獨份子!

"台灣人無非想多要紅包啫,有何骨氣傲氣可談,與其送錢給美國佬,不如分畀啲反對統一的人,幾百億美元兌回新台幣,褶都褶死班台獨份子! ",
以上這些說話很有老左味,
亦表現出你不尊重不同政府想法的人,
你令我很失望,
不同人有不同政治理念,
但只要亙相尊重才可以求同存異,
若憑着你上述這樣的態度去相討國家統一,
只怕人家寧於玉石俱焚也不會投降,
不要以為軍事力大就可以任意孤行,
歷史說給我們聽軍力不是統一持久的最主要原素,
不信?
請你回想你看過多少中國的歷史吧!

the inner space said...

新鮮兄:我又唔喺叫大陸,運錢去台灣褶死班台獨份子。 我只是叫台灣的統派,要求馬英九政府唔好再嗮錢買美國佬的obsoleted爛鐵,留返啲錢啫。

兄弟鬩牆益咗啲美國佬幾無謂呢?

當要維護國家主權,保持中國國土完整,不再受美國佬疏擺,進行分裂國土,大陸已經很克制了。台灣佬現今所做的,是一味要紅包啫,統一就拖拖拖,有眼的都看得出,不用我重覆。

但還要繼續花錢每次幾百億美元,送給美國佬,買些飛不起的飛機,射不準的飛彈,漏水的潛水艇 etc etc 你說是亙相尊重?

閣下可以不同意我的意見,但都不用亂蓋帽子叫我”老左“唉,民主是要包容不同意見!

新鮮兄:我前文都沒有叫你是台獨分子,所以不用咁早勞氣!

嘿嘿 said...

“以上這些說話很有老左味”

哗!这帽子很美丽!嘿嘿嘿~~~

the inner space said...

嘿嘿嘿! 多謝 嘿嘿兄 來訪!

老左的帽子不但美麗美觀還很高的呢!

送你一頂如何?

新鮮人 said...

space,
你有你睇法,
人家有人家,
亙相討論本無問題,
但係你話:
"台灣人無非想多要紅包啫,有何骨氣傲氣可談",
咁樣講係咪好唔尊重和你有不同的想法呢?
你講到人家全部好似為咗少少錢就出賣自己,
仲肯定人家無傲氣,
咁講係咪太武斷,
亦唔尊重唔同意見嘅人呢?

the inner space said...

哈哈哈!難道新鮮兄是來自台灣所以對號入座?

我罵那些沒有骨氣的台灣佬見紅包就開眼啫,這是我的 opinion,難道還要恭維他們嗎?他們要大陸遊客去台灣,又向大陸要求買台灣的農產品,又要咩又要物,猛要收大陸紅包,但賺到的錢,就向美國佬買些 obsoleted 的武器來打大陸,不知醜不害羞!哈哈哈!難道我連發表 opinion 都要講“尊重”,這還可以算是意見嗎?我最最先是說台灣的統派,要求馬英九政府唔好再嗮錢,買美國佬的 obsoleted 爛鐵,留返啲錢啫。

opinion 和 facts 是有分別的新鮮兄,你可以說我的 facts inaccurate,但 opinion 是我自己的看法!

懇請新鮮兄先不要勞氣,兼夾火遮眼,看清楚大家一起再討論!
