Like most red-blooded Americans, I love the Super Bowl itself. But here are 3 things about football’s biggest game that I can’t stand:
1. All the pregame blather. The various Super Bowl pregame shows -- with all their fake laughter and ‘deep” analysis -- are where your fun Sunday afternoon goes to die. The real kickoff time for Pittsburgh-Arizona is Sunday at 6:28 p.m. Be smart. Turn on the TV at 6:27.
2. The Roman Numerals. They are so self-important. Does this really need to be Super Bowl XLIII? Can’t it just be Super Bowl 43?
3. The know-it-all. There’s one at every Super Bowl party. He’s the close-talker, the one expounding on Cover-2 defenses and mike linebackers while spilling beer all over your shoes. Keep the buffet table between yourself and this guy at all times.
