Super Bowl 48 - the first ever Marijuana Bowl as Seattle and Denver come from states with legalized marijuana.

I'm listening to the Pens/Kings game, and I'd just like to ask you folks in California a question... would you be willing to trade us your announcers in exchange for our TV announcers + Mike Lange? Admittedly this would weigh heavily in our favor, but if you are willing to talk we can find ways to sweeten the deal (e.g., we'd really prefer to keep Dan Potash, but he isn't completely untouchable).

I concluded the same thing. A poll I voted in on the ESPN site said that 63% disagree with us.

15% of Coloradans do it, while 13% of Washingtonians do it. Since pot slows response, Seattle has a slight edge.

But Colorado is consistently ranked near or at the top of the healthiest states in America, so they started out well ahead of Washington. 8)

In order to spare a city, whose denizens will get no sun to about August, the depression that would ensue with a loss....there can be no option other than Seattle winning.

You have little idea what happens to already vitamin d deficent people under such circumstances. I really think they needed to have started with the citywide prozac in the water supply about a week ago...just in case.

I may need help with my evacuation plan.....

I was offered Seattle and 7 the other night and hesitated. Oh well. They were getting 4. Just don't know enough about this version of Law and Order to have made that call.

Well, if you're a Seattle fan, that was an exciting game. If you're a Bronco fan, I'm sorry. I'm so very sorry. Otherwise, if you really don't follow either team, you probably don't even know the final score, for you most likely turned the game off at halftime and sought some more exciting entertainment than watching a team get their teeth kicked down their throat.

Yeah, you didn't miss much, except maybe for Seattle's TD on the opening kickoff of the second half.

at least it was warm enough that he didn't turn into a orange popsicle!

I am most relieved at not having to look up all week and avoid the disappointed 'hawks fans flinging themselves from buildings all over town...it could have gotten messy.

Well, now that the Sonics left town and became the Thunder, and now that Ichiro left town and became a damn Yankee, it's good for Seattle to have some team win a championship. ;D

I notice that Pete Carroll today became only the third Super Bowl champion head coach to have also headed the coaching team for an NCAA Div I champion, the previous two being Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer.

This is cool! For the first time in the history of the NFL, a punter will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. After years of disappointment, the only punter to be drafted in the first round (and to hit the roof of the New Orleans Superdome with a punt), Ray Guy, has finally been elected.

So I have a couple fine questions about MLB TV to ask you fine people this fine afternoon. If I got this service for the upcoming season, would the local games (for me, Pittsburgh) be blacked out? If so, how would they know what games to black out? For example, couldn't I pay through an online thing and claim to live in California or something? Also, do they show any playoff games, or do the contracts with FOX/whoever keep them off there?

Yes, they would be. THey use your IP address to track it. But if you took a trip to, say, St. Louis, then the Pirates game would not be blacked out, but the Cardinals games would be.

They show playoff alternative feeds, as well as archived games, but not live.

also, check your PMs

I tuned in just in time to hear the home run by the Cubs. Wonderful.  :P  I'm listening on this thing that they used to use in the old days, called a radio. I decided to go that route rather than the net and/or the MLB's own thing. They also had a cassette player at Walmart in the same area, but I passed that up. For now.

I am so sleepy... why did the bucs have to go and have a rain delay? And now they're actually scoring some runs and I don'want to miss this rare event. Humbug!
