Inebriated blogging...  you have been warned. 

Harrison - super interceptionSo today was the fantabulous Super Bowl, and it was a pretty super game.  I was rooting for Arizona - I like Kurt Warner, and was in fact wearing a Arizona #13 jersey for the festivities - but I guess I'm not totally surprised that the Steelers won.  That play at the end of the 1st half was a killer, your basic 14-point swing.  After that, Arizona did make an amazing comeback, and then Pittsburgh did too - in the last minute.  You pretty much can't ask for more from a game.

I'm not a Bruce Springsteen fan by any means, but I do agree; he delivered in his halftime show.

Liron Shapira ponders animal morality.  I have to admit, I do too...  I love animals, especially medium rare with a port wine reduction...
