Default usa today article

there was an article about how this was one of the most boring bowls and the refs did a major screw job to seattle. even the letters to the editor section had fans throughout the country complaining about the refs. and about the head ref who has overturned the least amount of calls all year w/replay. dr. z said porter shouldnt talk about smashmouth when it was not used and when we used a trick play. or the timeout we got when the play clock clearly showed zero. and of course all of the other plays. the icing on the cake was when it was revealed the back judge is from pittsburgh (the one who called the PI on seattle). i knew this was going to happen right after the seconds ticked off sunday. oh well, i have been getting steam from all my buddies about this being a tainted title. i tell them they are envious cause their teams didnt win!

the only tainted title i can think of is the one ohio state got in the 03 champ. game. that PI flag came out ten seconds later, NOW THAT WAS BAD!!!

IMO there is no such thing as a tainted title unless something illegal (ie Black Sox) happens, bad calls are part of the game. Good teams perservere, they just find a way to get it done...

I read the editorial page in yesterdays USA Today and was more amused with the number of people complaining about the absolutely horrible rendition of the National Anthem by Aretha Franklin and Aaron Neville.

I second those people's sentiments. It was absolutely horrible in my opinion.

I am so sick of all the negativity and allegations that I see on TV, newspapers, radio, etc. It's disgusting!

It was so boring that more people watched it than any other superbowl in a decade, which happens to be the last time the Steelers were in it.
