Excellent idea Rick! I encourage more Superbowl related polls, however tangential they may or may not be.

Here's one about the last Super Bowl "victory" the Steelers had. shake

Poll: Super Bowl XL
Super Bowl XL (Seattle vs. Pittsburgh) will be remembered for:
A Steeler victory with "The Bus" announcing his retirement.
Crappy refs cheating the Seahawks out of a win.

Sorry, but after "The Worst Year Ever" for sports here in Seattle I'm now left clinging to my bitter memories.

I was looking for the one that said "I leave the room during halftime" or "I miss the great marching bands."

Agreed.

The last really good halftime show I remember was U2 in 2002.

Gotta disagree. As an aging rocker myself, the shows since the TimberSon/JackLake nonsense have been fun. Much better than watching Aerosmith trying to figure out why they were sharing a stage with a buncj of people they'd never heard of . . .

Prince playing through the torrential rain was awesome, and I had so much fun rocking out to Tom Petty with my Giants handling the Pats . . .

Edit. Looking forward to Bruce, too. Guy puts on a *show*.

Yup - see what I did there? I loaded the question to ensure I end up with the answer I wanted . . .

PS. Romo sucks.

I'm picking the Cardinals to win. And Larry Fitzgerald for MVP. That guy is incredible. He catches anything and everything.

I don't know who to pick for the best halftime show since I don't really like any of them. I wonder if there'll ever be a female halftime performer again, or how many years it'll take...

Dallas not winning again is pretty sweet. I never realized the Seahawks were robbed. And Bacon is definitely overrated. It tastes pretty good, but I'd rather have French Toast.

I'll drink some champagne while listening to Kornheiser and ideally Stuart Scott on the sidelines.

Thanks for all the follow-up polls!

You missed "Bourbon and Wings".

I downed Bourbon and Wings throughout the Giants' run last year. The beer and pizza I consumed with this year's game didn't work as well . . .

I'm an "Other." Verne Lundquist and Pat Hayden. Both knowledgeable as you'd hope, and their rapport seemed utterly genuine.

I vote for MisterCranky and hibikir to do the commentary.

Is "Bourbon and Wings" a beverage? because it sounds tasty.

The crankiest team of superbowl cranks?

And there one of Warner's Jesus powered fumbles!
No wonder he's a man of faith Josh, look at how confidently he drops the ball, and hopes that Jesus recovers it for him!
