This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Super Bowl. It is Super Bowl 50. I won’t forget the past performances that have been shown by Winning Super Bowl QB’s. They helped their teams win Super Bowls. Right now it is Cam Newton v. Payton Manning. In my view I think that Cam Newton should win the Super Bowl, and plus he’s heavily favored, but I would hate for Payton Manning of him only winning just one Super Bowl, because after that it is retirement. Well, it isn’t fair, but it is what it is. I think that Cam Newton is very young, and at some other time he won’t be in other Super Bowls like this one. He will be in others. But, the point I am making is that this might be the only opportunity he will have. Well, the truth is that whoever plays strong is the victor to be rewarded the championship. We can’t please both quarterbacks, but we can congratulate the one who will win it. It is up to these two: Payton Manning v. Cam Newton. Whoever wins we’ll all be fine with it. The Super Bowl halftime show will be spectacular. Don’t forget to see the Super Bowl this coming weekend!

Unbroken is a movie about the life of Louis Silvie “Louie” Zamperini an Olympic Medalist. When I saw this movie with my dad I got interested in it. Louis fought with the Americans in World War II. His plane failed, and landed in the ocean, while fighting Japanese enemy planes killed his friends. He spent 47 days in the middle of the ocean. To be able to survive, he ate some kinds of fishes, which his friends caught in the water. They spent those entire days eating raw fish. In the 47th day he was rescued by Japanese, war enemies, and was sent to various prisoner of war camps led by, and was mistreated by Corporal Watanabe. On his last prisoner of war camp the Japanese military were defeated by the American army, and Zamperini returned as a war hero in America. When he was 81 in 1998, he ran a leg in the Olympic Torch Relay of the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Most of the Japanese crowds applauded his efforts. Louis Zamperini died last year of 2014. Unbroken is a very good movie.
