Super Bowl Roundup

Some odds and ends from this year's Super Bowl:

  • Former Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton were seen entering the stadium together. Both were doing the "Ickey Shuffle".
  • The coin used for the ceremonial toss at the start of the game was a specially designed Chuck E. Cheese token. The team that won the coin toss also won 10,000 tickets from the restaurant. These could be applied to purchase a variety of gifts including a gigantic foam #1 finger, a small plastic football with the logo "Official Super Bowl Miniature Plastic Football", or one dozen Tootsie Rolls.
  • The halftime show went off without controversy. The only small glitch were the heart attacks 3 FCC Comissioners had when Sir Paul McCartney unexpectedly adjusted his guitar strap, just above his right nipple. In a related story, there is no truth to the rumor that Janet Jackson had another warddrobe malfunction at the precise conclusion of the halftime show, while dining in a Bob's Big Boy. The person in question was Tito Jackson. (First Tito joke of the blog!)
  • The Gatorade dumped over Bill Belichick this year was Extreme Mountain Breeze Lime Fudge Ripple flavor. This is a special Super Bowl flavor and is not available in stores.
  • Terrell Owens was immediately traded to the Detriot Lions after the game for the rights to Carl "Action Jackson" Weathers and a pack of Dentyne gum. The trade was voided by the NFL Commissioner after it was learnt that Detroit had the rights to neither of them.
  • The fireworks used during the halftime performance were especially designed to look like fireworks used at a Beatles performance sometime during the years 1964 -69. One glitch: Everyone was too stoned back then to remember what the originals looked like, although Sir Paul reportedly said, "sparkle-y".
  • Terry Bradshaw reportedly fell asleep in the second half, muttering either the phrase "Roger Staubach and I would clean up nowadays." or "Batwings, walkman, cornucopia, fizzle...why won't Howie let me call him on my cell phone?"
  • There is no truth to the rumor that Justin Timberlake was seen on the sidelines randomly pulling the tops off of cheerleaders, and at one point, Philadelphia coach Andy Reid.
