Is there anyone alive in the United States today who does not know that the Super Bowl is coming up on Sunday? It is Super Bowl XXXV, thirty-five in real numbers, and will be played in Tampa. One can only wonder if we will see the designation "Super Bowl L" or "Super Bowl C" or if they will be considered too timid in Logo Land. But I digress.
