01/21 A.M. Quickie: Slurper Bowl Mayhem!

Get ready for the Super Slurper Bowl with today's SportingNews.com column found at my spot at the Sporting Blog. Check it out (should be up shortly).

Why you shouldn't care about Super Bowl XLII storylines...
Why the Chargers should be accused of chokery...
Why the Giants win was a true shocker...
Why Pack fans wanted "Favre to be Favre" -- and got it...
Why UCLA's loss at home wasn't as bad as UNC's...
Why Tracy McGrady is more important than Pat Riley...
Why Golfweek is apologizing...
Why John Harbaugh is the new Bobby Petrino...
Why Norm Chow makes UCLA the new USC...
Why Herschel Walker's records need to be re-examined...
Why Terrelle Pryor is going to Michigan...
And More!

Take today's poll to the right!
Check out the weekend's columns below!

I especially encourage you to check out the post immediately below, where I lay out the stakes: The Pats are playing for 19-0, but the Giants are playing for nothing less than to exorcise the ghosts of the 2004 ALCS, because denying the Pats 19-0 should be every bit as devastating to Boston fans as choking away a 3-0 ALCS lead was to Yankees fans.

Ya know, regardless of who wins the Super Bowl, we're all guaranteed one thing.

MASSIVE Boston-New York media hype! woo-hoo!

I'd much rather have Favre slurping, instead of Manning family slurping. How many Archie/Peyton/Eli stories are we going to see in the next two weeks?

Interesting psychology--i.e. the exorcism of the 2004 A.L.C.S. collapse of the Yankees as a motivation for the Giants. As for me, I'm sorry, but I'm one of those 1972 perfect season Dolphins fans. So--GO GIANTS! (I probably just put a great big hex on them!)

Regarding the SN post: Tulowitzki already got his extension, the largest ever for a player with less than 2 years in the majors: 6 years, $30 mil.

I can not stand the '72 Dolphins. I am not a NE fan, but I just want to shut up Mercury Morris and everyone else so they can just simply go away and stop making appearances on sports center.

So Norm Chow is on the other side of the line in the USC-UCLA rivalry. I'm guessing that it will get a little ugly when UCLA knocks USC out of title contention next year.
