On Sunday, Feb. 1, an actual football game will be played. With teams that have identical 14-4 records. A game that Las Vegas has declared about as even a match up as we've had in years, with a one-point spread.
In less than one week, the Super Bowl will be here, heightened more than ever by the controversy of the past week. The New England Patriots, the AFC champions, have had to dodge some pretty heavy scrutiny and criticism after playing what appeared to be an almost flawless game last week.
Without fail, twice a year, I have a fond thought for a man I never had the pleasure of meeting. Those times: National Football League opening day and during the frenzy leading up to an American holiday called the Super Bowl.
