Now we know why Fox went with a seven-hour Super Bowl pregame show. It allowed for more self-promotion. It wasn't just all those promos for Fox shows such as "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill," it was everything. One more segment of "Celebrity Trivia" featuring Fox stars, and we were ready to take a cue from the businesswoman in the computer ad Fox kept showing during the pregame show, the one who took the golf putter and started busting everything up.

At one point Sunday there were hundreds and hundreds of people running around with their faces painted white and black, some of them wearing silver armor, bombs in the distance, security personnel everywhere-- making it feel very much like a Raider game. The stadium was full of fans, however, a dead giveaway this was not a Raider game, not to mention it was the Super Bowl and they're never invited to the big game. But why would 74,000 people pay at least $325 a shot to have KISS yell at them?

To all the teams I've loved before . . . Ah, those charming Denver Broncos of the 1990 Super Bowl, so special. John Elway to Vance Johnson to eternity. And those Buffalo Bills of 1991, those glorious unstoppable Bills. Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, obvious mismatch. Who've traveled in and out my door . . . Oh, how I embraced the San Diego Chargers of 1995, the soul of Bobby Ross, the heart of Stan Humphries, the upset of the century.
