Obligatory Super Bowl post

Germany and Italy about to bump heads in the 2006 World Cup.

I was amused to notice that Germans look at this near national holiday of ours and warn as follows:
Watching Football Is Hazardous to Your Health

Munich hospitals were fuller than usual during the 2006 World Cup. The reason? Passionate football fans were having an alarming number of heart attacks. A new study says it's all part of being a fan.

Have heart troubles? Then you might want to skip watching the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Der Spiegel

Well maybe. But I don't think they understand how often the ultimate game turns out to be an over-hyped yawner. Their "football" provides more suspense, usually.

This one may rise above that, but I am not expecting much. Still, rooting to see the perfect season - go Pats!

Well -- the last 5 minutes probably were hazardous to some people's health. Good game.
