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.
