Home ~ Entertainment ~ Super Bowl XLVIII Party–This worked very well!!!

CRW_5245.CRWAt the suggestion of my local Dick’s Sporting Goods Manager, purchased an NFL Autograph Football. It was well received. Guest were delighted to sign it. We have a very nice keepsake.

Home ~ Entertainment ~ Super Bowl XLVIII Party–What didn’t work!

My chain-suspended, weight bearing, TV wall mount. The weight, as tested, was not a problem. The bracket position and therefore center of gravity of the TV caused the chains to pull away from the wall. Quinton, my next door neighbor, and I looked for a way to counter balance–NOT FOUND!

WP_20140202_028I decided to mount the TV on its stand. I built the set-top box stand using an angle iron frame for the top part and 1/4″ plywood. I thought it could withstand the weight and IT DID!

Given the weight of the TV and the awkwardness in handling it, I do not plan to use it in the carport again. If anything, the projector and screen. BTW, the set-top box sat on its side on the floor.

Stay tuned…

Home ~ Entertainment ~ Super Bowl XLVIII Party–DONE!

Hyacinth & Claire

SUCCESSFUL!!!

That is what we are told.

If my count is correct, we had 20 guests who truly enjoyed the game. Nineteen routed for Seattle. Those of us routing for Denver were in the minority. They let us know it!

Irrespective, it was all a lot of fun…
