Cruel, but accurate, comments on the Super Bowl

* "These teams are playing like they know whoever wins has to go to the White House."--Jess Dweck

* That was the sort of Super Bowl one is sentenced to.

* "I suppose it's possible to see a worse half of football, but probably only in Pop Warner."

* Like 4 hours of soccer

* "There's a room in hell where they play this Super Bowl over and over...."

* They invoked Andy Warhol in a commercial, and the game was like one of his early movies. Let that be a lesson to them.

Also, you can't prove it by me, but I'm hearing that they chose a halftime band that wouldn’t make the game look bad.

Consolation

In the 60s the NFL had a postseason game between the two second-place teams, called the Playoff Bowl. It was abandoned, presumably because it went against the American belief that There Is Only One Winner. This year it would probably have been more fun than the Super Bowl.
