It struck me as a bit ironic that the Super Bowl this year features The Patriots and The Falcons. It's almost like a vintage issue of Captain America Comics when Jack "King" Kirby was at the helm and the duo of Cap and Falcon were a dynamic fighting force for truth, justice and the American way.
The Super Bowl has long ago peaked and you can feel the energy and juice draining out of it year after year as it becomes less an event and more just another somewhat hoary tradition like the Rose Bowl Parade and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, more a marker of the passage of time than a real thing on its own.

Wake me up when it's over.
