Ah, so that's how you compete against the "Lingerie Bowl"...

The Super Bowl was a great game, but nevertheless overshadowed by the halftime show. I can add this incident to the already long list of reasons to dislike Justin Timberlake, N'Sync, boy bands, lip syncing, MTV, and The New Kids on the Block. (Yeah, I've been around this block too many times already.) All you need to know about Justin Timberlake's musical ability is that he cancelled a concert due to a sprained ankle. Bet that never happened to Al Green.

I came in dead last with my Super Bowl picks. Blame it on a "wardrobe malfunction", whatever that means. I got the dome being closed right, and then it kinda went downhill from there. Next year we'll have to bet on more non-game related items, like the over/under on the length of the national anthem and the result of the coin toss.

Since I'm not really an NBA fan, I don't find much to follow in the world of professional sports during the month of February. February is a good month for college and high school wrestling, though, and that seems to keep me going. Spring Training is right around the corner, and every time I refresh ESPN.com or cubs.com I hope to see that Maddux returns to Chicago. I think it's going to happen - he's not getting offers (at least publicized ones) from anywhere else, and he'll eventually realize he's not worth top dollar anymore. His agent, Scott Boras (who surely works on a percentage basis), will argue otherwise, but this will all work in the end and Maddux will get a respectable two-year deal. I haven't been good with my predictions, but let's hope this one comes true...
