Sunday's game between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, which was essentially over early in the second half, drew one of the worst Super Bowl TV ratings. Fox's 3-hour 20-minute telecast of Denver's 34-19 victory got a 40.2 national rating, the lowest since 1990, and a 61 share, which matched the lowest for the Super Bowl. San Francisco's 55-10 victory over Denver in 1990 drew a 39.0, which was the lowest since Super Bowl III in 1969 got a 36.0.

Falcon receiver Terance Mathis said he has had no negative reaction to his disclosure in an Atlanta newspaper earlier this week that he had a drinking problem and sometimes drove around town while under the influence.

The word 'alcoholic' has been put in the forefront. I had a drinking problem," he said.

There was no reason to believe the general manager's job with the Bills wouldn't ruin Polian's health, too.

If you're a long-suffering New York Giants fan, these are the best of times. Pat Blackmore and Jim Palmieri met the Super Bowl-bound football team Sunday at Long Beach Airport, drove in a horn-honking caravan to The Westin South Coast Plaza hotel and shouted their joy to each player as they got off the bus. "It's been a lot of years in the toilet," said Palmieri, 32, who grew up in Connecticut and now lives in El Toro.
