The Super Bowl is Just a Lousy Football Game
It's been built up for months -- the big game. But with so much on the line, the coaches are going to be conservative. There'll be more action in the ads than on the field. No matter how much brew you down, by the fourth quarter, it'll be clear that the announcers are desperately trying to convince you a meaningful battle is going on.
Enter an [office] box pool; that way you'll at least have a stake in the final score.
