    I’d really need to see a thorough investigation showing a chain reaction caused by the halftime show triggered the SB blackout.

    As a dispassionate observer, it looked fishy that when one team had a dramatic play, went up by a significant amount, and was in danger of breaking the other team’s morale utterly, a convenient blackout cools everyone down and stabilizes the game.

    The transition of the NFL into the WWWF continues apace, which is why I manage to view a total of about 1.2 games per season.

    No Rule 5 this week in deference to Senator Menendez living the dream?

  • Wombat_socho

    No, it’ll be up tonight. It was a very difficult weekend for blogging, and the early part of the week isn’t turning out much better.

  • Wombat_socho

    The fix was in, no doubt.
