Modern Anthropology

I seem to link this article every year, and it still cracks me up. It's the requisite Super Bowl description from the BBC, written in the voice of a scientific study of natives in a jungle somewhere. The NPR coverage isn't much different.

And don't forget the Puppy Bowl! With the magic of Tivo, I'll get to watch both. AND I can skip all the boring pre-game/post-game bullshit. I actually want to see halftime this year because Tom Petty is playing, or I would skip that too.

Happy Super Bowl, everyone!

through the magic of picture besides picture on Jared's TV, we watched the puppy bowl and Tom Petty at the same time. It was pretty sweet.

I Tivo'd the Puppy Bowl, and only got a few minutes into it. I guess it's lost its charm.

I'm going to see Tom Petty at the Gorge sometime in August...you should come. I am hoping he plays neither free fallin nor runnin down a dream.

Yeah seriously, those are two of the greatest songs ever. WTF?

If by "greatest" you mean "overplayed" and "subpar soundbytes that have come to define a great musician's entire catalogue" then I completely agree with you.

It's like when Led Zeppelin got back together...did they really play Stairway to Heaven? REALLY?

You cheered when Rush played Tom Sawyer.

True, but I was so drunk you had to drive home, remember? Sorry about that.
