Super Blah

We're supposed to be jacked up about the Super Bowl this year. At least that's what ESPN tells us.

Sorry, not happening here.

I realize there are Pittsburgh Steelers fans here left over from the Terry Bradshaw days. But I just feel no emotion - one way or the other about that team. And this comes from a guy who has covered a game at old Three Rivers Stadium and the last Super Bowl appearance by the team.
As for the Seahawks, they've got a great team. But really, who around here follows Seattle?

So come Super Bowl Sunday, I'm sure we'll have the game on TV in the office. But caring? Not me.

When does baseball start?

It's hard to hype these teams -- they certainly don't have the appeal other teams would have had. Can you imagine how happy the NFL would have been if its darling New York Giants had faced off against the poster-boy Indianapolis Colts? Manning vs. Manning would have been a great marketing tool for the league. Roethlisberger vs. Hasselbeck? I don't think so. ESPN and others are doing their best to raise interest in the game, but unfortunately most people are tuning in to the big game just to catch the cheesy commercials.
