Maybe one day we can hope this show will be the most watched sports show of the year.
I checked out this year's Superbowl,as I have never watched one EVER, and I was surprised at all the fat, dumb-looking players. Except the golden boy quarterbacks.It is so reminiscent of the Galdiator Games of Rome. Lots of testosterone and no real atheletic value. Just noise and commentary. On a positive note, it sure looked pretty on my HDTV. Why would you WANT to go to the actual stadium? Oh well, one can only hope.
