    I smoked my last joint ever during Super Bowl XVI January 24, 1982.

    What is this “Super Bowl” you speak of? If you’re going spoof football, why not do something on “The Big Game”? The hoopla around that is ripe for a takedown.

    Packers 31-24, I’ll PROBABLY be elsewhere. But then, you never know.

    But the spoof is not at all on football. as always, TDB mocks our culture.

    @ junco49 - actually, I have Packers at 35-24, so we’re on the same wavelength… ;)

    “Bread and Circuses —a Roman method of crowd control, which eventually stopped working just before the whole culture collapsed, drowning in its own sewage.

    by the way, the “Joe Montana” one was true.

    Fact: God declines to honor the prayers of one NFL team every Super Bowl game!

    The only country man enough to have human bullfighting! Of course I speak of congress/most overemotional politico-debate, not football.

    Dead air and chimpson cycles? He must have accidentally changed the channel over to c-span or Faux-Nudes, (or RedEye, the best show on Faux-nudes.)

    Impressively close, Junco & Lilies. I didn’t watch and found out the score this morning as the T.S.A. agents argued about the game. I agree w/ Tom: It, like all of t.v., is designed by the wealthy to distract the working class from demanding social equality and an end to the yawning gap between rich & the rest of us.

    There’s a song by Timbuk3 called “Just Another Movie” which opens with

    Presidential elections Are planned distractions To draw attention from the action behind the scenes. Like a game of chess When the house is a mess, Or a petty money squabble When your marriage is in trouble, Or a football game when there’s rioting in the streets.

    This song was written before Super Bowl XXIII in 1989, when the news coverage from Miami centered more on the upcoming Bengals/Niners game than on the race riots after a policeman shot a Hispanic motorcyclist in the head…
