    A quick canvas of the Dome’s Corporate suites tonight will find many of these types of “football” fans. They may not know who Flacco, Lewis or Kaepernick are, but they sure know Blahnik, Choo, and Louboutin !

    The feminist movement might consider that interview as degrading to women, Tank. Women are very sensitive about that sort of thing, and they could say you purposely sought out women and ignored the possibility that a man wouldn’t know about the Super Bowl. You have to tread lightly these days, especially with females, unless you’re attacking a politician. . Big ears are listening, and they can strike from anywhere, even from across the room.

    Your mistake is assuming people listen to the hype.

    This is far too sexist. I meant this to be a rare find for Tank, certainly not a suggestion that women are ditzy and clueless about sports, or anything. Their husbands would be just as uninterested in the game, they just wouldn’t be willing to talk to Tank. My bad.

    Actually I wasn’t thinking this was sexist, just satirical. It might’ve been a good idea to show their clueless husbands although I don’t think it would’ve been necessary. (Of course, these seem to be trophy wives, and their husbands are very likely much older, and on their third or fourth wives…having them appear like that might’ve been interesting!)

    Nice that the male readers and author came to the defense of those of us who know who is playing, the QB’s, and even some finer points of the game. No hard feelings, at least IMO. The foibles of men (athletes, et al) get lampooned enough in this strip. Probably far more often than women, and on deeper failings than being clueless about the Superbowl. (SJOY is usually, if not always a man, right? And the runner up, too.) So there’s a fair balance on the whole.

    It has been reported that those fancy Super Bowl suites are charging $325 per person for catering. Now you have a budget to work with for your own game-time snacks.

    When I watch football my wife grudgingly watches if nothing else is on her channels (no cable). She knows the teams,only if she can see the helmets. She doesn’t usually care who wins. “I just root for whoever has the ball” is her usual comment. But I agree with the point of the ‘toon: the REAL fans can’t afford/can’t get a ticket, and are reduced to increasing corporate profits by watching the game and driving up the ratings for the commercials.

    Huh, funny, my mom makes more noise than ANY one else in our house for teams if she cares for even a little. And I ASSURE you she knows and cares far more about the Superbowl than my hubby. Me, I had to be reminded it was this weekend (seems late) but as I had no real reason to turn on the TV I never saw it. I might have for one of my 3 or 4 favorite teams.

    My (surrogate AFC) team, the Baltimore Ravens, beat the San Francisco 49ers.

    Glad for the power outage to make it a game. I thought Ravens would win, but wanted SF.

    The Baltimore Ravens beat my team the Denver Broncos at the beginning of the playoffs. After that, I pretty much stopped paying attention.
