I rate last night's Super Bowl as FAILURE, Epic Division, because when the players ran out of the locker room-- what did they run through? A tunnel of the back-ups? An entirely awesome, fully enormous inflatable helmet? NO. First a bunch of flag-waving feebs in gym shorts came traipsing past, and THEN the players. No introductions. No high-fiving down the line. That means the dream of every single school child ("FROM.... SAINT MARY'S COLLEGE... OF NOTRE DAME, INDIANA.... THE GATORADE GIRL.... MARY BETH ELLIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)"was flushed directly down the SuperCrapper. WORST. SUPER BOWL. EVER.

We set up one for the Colts at the Inaugural Ball, but, as it happens, they didn't need it:colts

Although it would have been a little difficult to run in The Shoes Which Are Awesome:ry3d400

I couldn't care less about the Super Bowl—unlike most of my fellow countrymen, who were incredibly PISSED that the Mexican TV networks decided to run a bunch of political ads just in the middle of Bruce Springsteen Half-time show.

However, I did get to see the tribute they gave to the crew of the Airbus that went down over the Hudson river. That was neat :-)

Teams have eschewed the individual player intros since the Patriots famously decided to be introduced as a team before going on to beat the heavily-favored Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002.

They still should have had the giant inflat-o-helmets, though.

[...] Love on a STICK Posted on Thursday, February 12, 2009 by MB The Illinois State Society Inaugural Ball presented several different themes through the hotel where it was staged.  We workers never got to saw them, as we were busy constructing fences out of cardboard and preparing for the Colts opening home game.
