Super Bowl Sunday: Let's Celebrate Nothing

I might just spend the afternoon reading, or weeding.  Super Bowl XLIX is the most over-hyped event of the year.  George Will post a good column on it here:  Letting the Air out of the Super Bowl

The reporting this year has been dominated by "Deflategate":  who let the air out of the Patriots balls prior to their win over the Colts two weeks ago?   (A better name for this non-event: Ballghazi!)  Saturday Night Live nails it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqn28uCtbO4 

Next year, I understand the NFL intends to drop the Roman numerals, because Americans won't understand what Super Bowl "L" means.
