Only two comments about the Stupid Bowl:
1. The counter-programming award has to go to The Learning Channel, which ran the following shows during the game: “Forbidden Love: Polygamy”; “My Husband’s Three Wives”; “Anatomy of Sex;” and “Mother Knows Sex.” Yeah, they probably got trounced by both the game and the Puppy Bowl, but it’s not for lack of trying.
2. I’ve never been that fond of the use of the word “speedball,” but for as clunky as it is, I don’t think I can ever forgive Springsteen for putting football lyrics in the first verse of “Glory Days” during the halftime show.
But that was last night. Today at THT:
It has been a long, ugly football season (as they all are). But remember: if we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. If we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. The football season is finally over. Pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks. The world will make sense again soon.
