Sally Jenkins has an interesting article on the bloated Super Bowl and how far the NFL can dip into our pockets before we say "Enough!"

Good article. Thanks for posting.

When L.A. eventually gets a team and a stadium, lord knows what that's going to be like and what the price tab will be.

I originally saw this linked on the Yahoo Baseball Blog, but I feel it is better to link directly to the article.

Every wondered what game Ferris Bueller caught the foul ball at?

Jeff MacGregor wrote a similar piece on Super Bowl excess for ESPN.Com.

Wake Forest's baseball coach now has a recruiting story that's tough to top.

Dallas Morning News still rehashing lost seat saga at Super Bowl, including first person account. I think most interesting was that the displaced were told they were receiving a credit for $10 worth of food or drink in stadium while they waited. So essentially, the NFL was offering to buy them a beer since that is about all you could get for $10. Of course, it turned out they never got the credit anyway.

Love child of Johnny Winter ...

She looks pale with that peroxide hairstyle.

Beyond that, no chance she has any association with Johnny - he's an extremely talented and well respected musician. She should stick to her day job, whatever that is.

Maybe they've found some semblance of decency.

Alex Rodriguez was as level-headed as expected about Super Bowl candids.

From ARod story: one of Hollywood's "it" couples never graced our flat screens for the rest of Super Bowl XLV

Thank goodness!!

Yeah, I'm not sure why ARod is upset. He just had his A-List Hollywood girlfriend feed him popcorn while sitting in a luxury box at the damn Super Bowl.

If anything, he's the boss!

The local radio guys are saying the Tigers should have a Free Popcorn Night the first game vs. the Yankees, and a Popcorn-Cam where they can show women feeding popcorn to their men in the stands...
