With 20 minutes left until kickoff, Stevie Wonder took the stage on the 50 yard line with India Arie, Joss Stone, and John Legend.  They sang some of Wonder’s most memorable songs as well as some Motown standards - very appropriate for Detroit.  As usual, the awful sound engineers of these live events had to screw it up by accidentally muting microphones when they weren’t supposed to.  At least there was no lip-syncing involved in the affair.

In an attempt to tug on America’s heart strings, ABC and Disney put on a feature about disabled children playing football.  I am trying really hard not to call it a “puff piece” and seem unsympathetic to the disabled.  It’s possible that they put this “story” on to get people to think that ABC’s coverage of Super Bowl appeals to the average American lifestyle.  I’m sure this is just a ploy to assure parents that there won’t be any wardrobe malfunctions this year.  The question on my mind the entire time was “Who’s the audience for this?” Surely all the beer drinking bar men don’t want to see this.  Leave the tear jerking for Barbara Walters and 20/20.


Super Bowl XL

Reminisce the championship game with us, as we live blog the Super Bowl.  We’ll be here to talk about everything from the pregame, lineups, the great commercials, Halftime show, and oh yeah, the game too.  Check out our forum thread to discuss, argue, moan and groan about everything Super Bowl XL.  Tell us what team you’re rooting for, what food your eating, what type of set you’re watching it on, and who you’re with.  Is grandpa waiving his Terrible Towel at you in Seattle?  Are the Seahawks - the #1 seed in the NFC - the underdog in this game?


Good luck to Jerramy Stevens
Oh no, the Seahawks woke up the sleeping dragon, conspiracy theorist, Joey Porter.  Porter has kept quite so far, but now it looks like he’s out for blood again - good luck to the Seattle offensive line trying to hold him back.  What led to trigger Porter’s anger now?  Seattle’s TE Jerramy Stevens made some comments he may end up regretting.

Stevens made some comments that will only pump Porter up.  Bad move Stevens.  Stevens doesn’t think Bettis will leave Detroit with the Vince Lombardi trophy and was quote saying:

“It’s a heartwarming story and all that, but it will be a sad day when he leaves without that trophy,”

Porter shot back by saying:

“has a lot of nerve” to say what he said about Bettis.

Regarding his thoughts of Stevens as a player:

“a first-round bust who barely made some plays this season.”

Stevens shouldn’t have made a “guarantee” like that, he’s not Mark Messier.  Now we feel bad for RB Shaun Alexander and FB Mack Strong who is going to have to pick up Porter on blitzes.  We wouldn’t be surprised if Alexander suffers another concussion.
