Arizona's Super Bowl Sunday, go green & politics

The real green is the money

UPDATE, Sunday night: GIANTS WIN! YES! Cool halftime show by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

I won't back down.

PHOENIX -- The granddaddy of all sports events, the Super Bowl, is about to start.

But this is nice Arizona, so why is the roof shut on the stadium? Lame.

I'm pulling for the Giants, but think the Patriots will likely win.

There's been some hype this year about 'greening up' the Super Bowl. While this is a good thought, someone I know involved in the effort said it has been a big disappointment.

There's not much green about the NFL, except the paychecks, but at least they thought 'green' this Super Bowl.

Go Green is the cheer at my alma matter, Michigan State University.

I'll be interested to see if any of the Presidential candidates show ads during the game.

Don't forget to vote Tuesday. I voted early for Obama.

Hillary was in Tucson yesterday, and Obama has not yet visited us. It may be hard for him to win an Arizona primary without a public visit to Pima County, the Democratic heart of the state.

Another 'Green' from the Superbowl is the income tax that the state gets to collect from the paychecks of the participants!!!!

I bet that both teams are oh so grateful that the legislature gave big tax breaks a couple of ears ago, just in time to save overpaid football players some dough...

It's hardly the "granddaddy" of all sports events. It may be one of the most popular (at least in America) but it is nowhere near the oldest sports championship.
