Marketing, Chicken Legs, and Sports Capitalism: Super Bowl Notes

Inauguration Day was the Super Bowl in our house (fumble John Roberts, touchdown America), and KDLT still hasn't figured out how to beam a strong enough digital signal to reach Lake Herman, so that football game a bunch of millionaire steroid users are staging today barely registers on the Madville Times radar. But if NBC can sell $206 million in ads for a four-hour stretch (over a quarter-billion for the whole day), the event must have some cultural relevance. In recognition of the event, some semi-random trivia:


  1. Greetings from sunny but somewhat chilly Tampa on this Super Bowl Sunday!

    I sat outside listening to live music at one of our more popular malls on Friday night. Lead singer from Sioux Falls! Check out http://www.hbcband.com/index.htm

  2. Is that Camille? Why "Midwest" and not "South Dakota"?

    Another balmy day here on the prairie: temperature and wind both 30! Yahoo!

  3. Corey:

    Only pinkos dislike Super Bowl Sunday. I'm just sayin'.

  4. Well, with all that Cardinal red, the Steelers' clear symbolism of organized labor, and that leftist halftime singer, I could have mistaken it for a celebration of the Revolution. To the barricades!
