Super Ball ended up becoming the idea for the term "Super Bowl." The first two contests between the NFL and the AFL were labeled the "World Championship Game." After the second such contest, the owners were sitting around trying to come up with a snappier name when Lamar Hunt, the guiding light of the American Football League, and the owner of the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs, remembered watching his daughter play with a high-bouncing Super Ball a few days earlier and 'ball' morphed into 'bowl. 'Voila...Super Bowl!

Thursday, 5th April:

Well had a nice relaxing breakfast, few more e-mails / work done, and then I finalised what I had to leave and what I had to take back with me.  Such a chore this check-out / check-in malarkey, anyway, left some of items in storage upon my return. 


My return flight was at 19:20 in the evening, allowing me to spend Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday off, and then spend the next week in the UK (working from home or in London). 


I was also working out how best to sort myself out for the next “long-stay”.  Having discounted the self-contained apartment option, there appeared to be no one willing to accommodate my short term status (3-months requirement), this meant I had no option but to stay at the Hilton for this period of time.  I booked the Flight via CTO, and also tentatively put down the hotel option as well.  Having spoken to the Head of Reservations / Sales, it transpired that I could get a deal, but had to book direct.  No major issues in my opinion, so will sort this out on Tuesday, next week.  This should address my immediate concerns, apart from the fact that 21st to 24th May was unavailable – something about a Champions League final (hmmm – that’s going to be a interesting period of time!), and limited availability for the end of April, so I better sort these dates out soonest too!


Work was okay, just tried to finalise as much as I can before leaving.  Few more conference calls and face-to-face meetings, some more intensive than others, and then I did a fond farewell around 16:30.  Well I will be back, on 17th April.  I had a mandatory AXP Brand training which I had to attend on 16th April, which meant I had to stay back for an extra day – c’est la vie, hey?


Return flight was interesting.  Firstly, having asked whether it was full, I was told yes it was, only to find out it was actually ¾ empty!  Must the fact everyone is going outwards not inwards to the UK – due to Easter Bank Holiday weekend.  Anyway, we were delayed by 40minutes due to a delayed inwards journey.  Having finally taken off, the flight managed to make-up the lost time so rapidly, that we actually arrived 5-10minutes earlier than the intended arrival time.  Not all good; lovely Heathrow did not have any stands for us, so we had to wait a further 20-25minutes on the taxi-way.  Grrrrr!!  Then we made it to the gate, and when we eventually made our way out, we had to wait another 20-25minutes for our damn luggage.  Further grrrrr!!!  No wonder no one likes Heathrow, it really is creaken at the seams at the moment. 


Taxi journey back was pretty quick, and a nice sleep was due!
