The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is not a sporting event, it is a television event. If you boiled down the whole 4+ hour broadcast to just the action on the field, the running time would be about 12 minutes. A majority of those gathered around the big screen today will only be interested in the chicken wings and the other 228 minutes. I enjoy it all, now pass the cheese dip.
Above: 1969, Joe Namath, quarterback of the NY Jets, in Miami before Super Bowl III, the catalyst of everything we'll see today, thanks Joe.
