Quick Hits: Super Bowl always blown out of proportion
BY JON FRANK, Couchsideshow.com contributor
Maybe I’m the only one, but I’m glad the Super Bowl is over.
Don’t get me wrong, things went about as well as you could ask. A great story line leading up to the Big Game, a well-played, entertaining game, with a great finish.
But now, with the exception of just about every NFL outlet trying to hock ridiculously expensive shit on people for the next week or so, things are going to get back to normal. No more in-depth looks at Tom Brady’s rockstar treatment in Indianapolis, no more monotonous AP stories on whether or not the Pats can get revenge for what Eli Manning and his band of misfits did to them in 2008. And, best of all, no more stories about Bill Belichick being a “nice guy once you get to know him”.
Everything in sports media over the last couple weeks Eli this, Tom Brady that. Now we can get back to talking about the, uh, NBA? MLB offseason? OK. So maybe there’s a reason media outlets don so much attention on this game. It’s the most highly anticipated event in American sports and things really slow down after the NFL’s grand finale. Regardless, I’m ready to move on with my life, which means a steady dose of college hoops for the next two months without having to read the same damn story line over and over again for a week and a half straight.
As for football in general, I’m sure I’ll be dying to have you back in my life come June when the NBA playoffs are over.
