There's no denying: we are obsessed with the Super Bowl.
But why? Is it the Roman numerals? Are we really thrilled to see XLV instead of 45? Where's Dr. Phil when you need him?
Whatever the causes, our Super Bowl obsession clearly exists. Actually, it is the climatic act of our obsession with the NFL. We've all been told the incredible numbers of viewers that the league has been attracting all season. Now we have a Super Bowl on Sunday involving the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers -- two "storied franchises," using a term you will hear a thousand times this week.
But what we want from you are witty one-liners to complete this week's list: "Top Ten Clues You're Obsessed With Super Bowl XLV." Maybe it involves the parties or the commercials or the Black-Eyed Peas. It probably doesn't involve the cheerleaders 'cause these two teams don't have cheerleaders.
Then again, the game is being played in the home of the Dallas Cowboys, so that creates another string of possibilities.
Whatever reason you want to submit as long as you keep it clean (and witty). Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org -- and include your first name, initial of your last name and your location. If your idea is used, then you get all the glory that seeing your first name and initial of your last name can bring.
