How's your day going?


Kinda made you want to puke, as I recall. See? The language really does change But anyway, it's Super Bowl time and I can't remember wh

I've been less excited. This is the venue, University of Phoenix stadium, home of the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Why can't TideeBowl sponsor a dome or a bowl anyway and give us all pleasure?

THAT'S GOOD BASS! (who remembers that?)

Thanks to the Boston Globe for all pix (except Tommy Boy).
