NFL holds Super Bowl in NYC; NYC unimpressed.
While the stadium is technically in New Jersey, it is considered equally if not primarily a New York stadium, and the NFL turned Times Square and Broadway into Super Bowl Boulevard Engineered By GMC.
Visitors can kick a football, watch television, ride a toboggan,
shop, enjoy a free slice of Papa John's pizza, play XBox, take a photo with the oversized Roman numerals 'XLVIII', use relevant Twitter hashtags,
and more. It is not decadent and depraved,
would tend to disagree. The Times discusses less vehement disapproval and disappointment,
while Business Insider wishes ill upon the city. Ticket sales are faltering relative to recent years,
with the new mayor among those skipping out.

The Who Dat nation is composed of long-suffering

citizens. What's the deal with "Who Dat," anyway?

The Steelers were 7-5, then won their final four regular-season games to secure the AFC's last playoff spot. They went to Cincinnati and won a wild-card game. They won at Indianapolis, which had the league's best record. And then they handed Denver its first home loss in the AFC championship game.
And now they're the first 6th seed playoff team ever to win the Super Bowl
. History made.

I like football
as much as the next guy, but this has to be the lamest attempt at "sports humor" I've seen in a while.

Well, only 10 shopping days left until Super B(bleep)l Sunday, and of course, everyone's ready for the big... commercials. This one
, from People for Eating Tasty Animals -- er, um, sorry; mispronounced that -- was refused by CBS, or so saith the minions at AdCritic. Hope they're planning a Superbowl focus page during and after the show. They really oughtta hold a vote. No, wait... it would take too long. :-}
