A response to Morty below that got too long for the response section. Please read his post first.
Morty, there is only one kind of football. The other game is soccer. And it is a game, not a sport. It is the passtime of peoples whose ancestors perfected the art of surrender and cowardice, thus clinging to a sport where running away and pretending to be injured are the primary skill sets.
While hockey is by far my favorite sport, I love football. Yes, it is overly commercialized, yes it is not as tough as hockey, and yes it is not as fast paced as hockey. But neither is Clint Black as exciting as Garth Brooks, but we can still appreciate him for his own greatness.
Now, this is NFL football. The organization is superior, but the product is inferior to college football. If the NCAA Div IA ever switches to a tournament system, there won't be any need for pro football anymore as far as I am concerned.
That being said, this is turning out to be one of the best Super Bowl matchups in recent memory. Yes, last year was a great game, but I detested both teams. This year I am a big fan of both QB's, if not the entire team, and we have a heck of a barn burner going here with 2:24 to go in the 4th.
And hell, we all need something to take our minds off of the Thrashers losing streak.
