Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Pats win again, 24-21. Ho hum. By which I mean "Yay!"
But as a relatively recent convert to the joys of the NFL, I have a request for the American public, especially the blogger subset:
If you want to watch the Super Bowl, watch it.
If you don't want to watch the Super Bowl, don't watch it.
But please, please, please, don't post an item telling us how you don't actually care about the game, but you just watch it for the commercials. By doing this, you manage to keep your nose in the air while snorting about in the mud. And that whole "watching for the commercials" thing was clever and counter-intuitive about 15 years ago. It's done.
