ah, the super bowl. what a spectacle it has become. two weeks of media hype and players talking smack. six hours of pregame garble courtesy of dumb (howie long) and dumber (terry bradshaw). cameras embedded in the turf so that viewers can sneak a peek at the referee's cleats. and sixty minutes of battlin' on the gridiron.

of course, i can't help but share one of my old fav's. sure, this one never aired during the super bowl. but given last year's lowbrow fest, it could have.
