I suppose congratulations are in order to the New England Patriots, who, in case you hadn't noticed the smoke and flame rising from the Boston area, won the Super Bowl last night. I watched the game in a sort of "I-don't-give-a-shit" haze (see earlier posts from today), and even given my state of mind I have to ask why people are referring to it as a "classic" Super Bowl. I mean, it was exciting compared to about 85% of the preceding Super Bowls, but still and all. 15 minutes of vaguely exciting football doth not a "classic" make. Still congrats to the winners, commiserations to the losers, etc.
