The "Big Game" Sunday!

You may have noticed that all the commercials you hear for local establishments throwing a party refer to it as "the big game" or some other nondescript title. It's a freakin' Super Bowl party fer Christ's sake! But a couple of years ago the NFL decided that too many people were making a buck off their product and started enforcing a copyright on the name "Super Bowl". If anyone uses the name "Super Bowl" for their profit the league expects a hefty payment for leaching off their product.

Hey, what do you expect when they are paying guys Millions to run around for an hour?

Now the American public is not stupid... OK, we have our fair share of sheeple when important things are on the line like weapons of mass destruction, but when it comes to meaningless crap like the name of a football party you can't pull the wool over our eyes!

It's time for the uprising that this country has been percolating towards and this is the catalyst! Down with the man! No more PC "Big Game" parties! Say it loud and say it proud, "I'm having a Super Bowl party!"

Damn The Torpedoes, full speed ahead!!

A "couple of years" ago? Heck, how about for at least the last 10 years?

And the Super Bowl's copyright claim makes sense. If a bar ran an ad with Troy Aikman's photo, he would have ever right to sue. Same thing holds true for a T-shirt I want to sell that has the Cowboys logo on it.
