Superbowl LG by CDRudd Superbowl LG by CDRudd
I've never been much of a football fan, but ya gotta love the superbowl. Parties, insanely prices commercials, Booze, Cheerleaders... and I think there's football in there too.

I own the NFL Films half-hour highlight reels of the first 40 Super Bowls on DVD.  As soon as Super Bowl L (50) has been played and Super Bowls XLI (41) through L are available on DVD, I will buy them.

Trust me, there has been something of a golden age of competitive Super Bowls since XXXII (32) in 1998.  The first 31 Super Bowls have had an average margin of victory of 16.581 points with 17 of them (54.8%) determined by more than two possessions.  Since then, the average margin has been 10.941 points with only three of them (17.7%) determined by more than two possessions.  Of course, last year's curb stomp may have ended that golden age, but it is too soon to tell.  If you take away Seattle's 43-8 thumpin' of the Denver Broncos, the margin of victory since 1998 goes down to 9.438 points.

I never got how you americans can be so much into that perverted version of rugby while the rest of the world has football as their favourite sport (nor why you insist of calling football for soccer)

Well, first of all, I'm Canadian. So it's more Hockey then either of the footballs out there.

Second of all, there's one main reason American football wins out over the European/world football (or Soccer as it's know in the States).

and that simple thing is....


Any sport with girls in skimpy outfits jumping around is destined to be popular.
(Which is why I'm surprised Women's Basketball and volleyball isn't more popular)

well womens handbold and tenis is pretty popular, most female tenis players are hot, but I think the reason is deeper then that.

The cultural difference between USA and Europe is enormous.
Just take schools for example, the American grade system is based on the idea of awarding the highest grade to the best student of the class, so that even if the second best student is almost as good as the best, he gets a significently worse grade because only one can get the top grade.
In Europe grades are almost universially based on an absolute scale, where students are rewarded based on a fixed standard, this makes it theoretically possible for every single student in a specific class to get top grades.
This means that in Europe it doesn't really matter if you are the best, as long as you are good, while in America the competition of being the best is more important then the actual quality of the work produced.

It reminds me of a study I once head off about hens.

We had 100 flocks of 6 hens and 1 cock that was divided into two groups. In one group these hens that individually lay the most eggs were selectively breaded while in the other group these flock of hens that collectivly lay the most eggs were selectively breaded.
Can you guess which selective breading gave the best result and why?

Oh Bay. That is why you never make bets you know you can't win.

im with bay never would have seen ravens making it to the super bowl O-O

It's never a good idea to make rash bets on sports teams. Especially when you have a lot of male friends, and a body like Bay's.

The question is, what would Bay have gotten is she won
