Commissioner Roger Goodell will sit outside during Sunday's Super Bowl in New Jersey. If the wind chill is minus 30, this is the first crowd shot I've ever looked forward to.
You get the feeling that if Goodell was in charge of the Puppy Bowl, it'd be contested by St. Bernards in Anchorage, Alaska.
This is the first Super Bowl of its kind. Of course, I'm referring to the fact that the Super Bowl halftime entertainer is under 70.
Bruno Mars will be joined onstage at halftime by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a group known for jumping around in their undershorts and socks. Here's one uniform fine you won't wanna miss.
There will be 43 advertisers during the Super Bowl. Well, 44 counting that “Omaha!” snap count gravy train our city is still riding.
It's Super Bowl Sunday so you know the big story in Nebraska. Only 72 hours until college football signing day.
This is Super Bowl XLVIII. Based on my knowledge of Roman numerals, that means it's either Super Bowl 37 or Super Bowl 58. Unless it's 44.
The NFL fined Richard Sherman $7,875 for taunting in the NFC championship game. He'll make something like $4 million in new endorsements for a net gain of $3,992,125.
A quick injury report: One Seahawk is questionable after getting between Sherman and a TV camera.
If you missed Super Bowl media day Tuesday, it was sort of like an episode of “Wipeout” only with less gravitas.
Media day is so dumb. One guy in a superhero costume was shouting questions. And I think that was the reporter from the Sporting News.
A Florida manatee named Buffett picked the Broncos. Buffett has correctly picked the past six Super Bowl winners. Which is still less shocking to me than Lee Corso correctly calling the USC upset of Stanford.
If the Broncos win, it's expected to increase Peyton Manning's endorsements if — and this is a big if — a product can be found that he's not currently endorsing.
A couple in Seattle gave their newborn baby girl the middle name “12th” with the last name Mann. A couple in Alabama named their son “Krimson Tyde.” It'll be nice if the kids can get the same therapist.
I just hope her first name isn't Beast Mode.
If Seattle loses, we can safely rule out “lack of fan passion” as the reason.
And finally: ESPN.com ranked every player in the Super Bowl. I think that's excessive and I work for a newspaper whose college football preview section is longer than an average city's phonebook.
