Southern Alaska being Packers country is interesting. I had a CO when I was stationed in Ketchikan that was a die-hard Packers fan.

Looks like that is Coosa County. No idea why there are more Steelers fans there than fans of other teams.

Wyoming, eastern Utah, and the western portions of some of the Great Plains states. I don't think that is really a stretch, what else is there?

http://deadspin.com/5979862/is-the-nfl-rigging-the-system-to-put-an-unqualified-referee-in-the-super-bowl

Now Yahoo and the New York Times have picked up on the story, dragging out current and former officials who say there was a concerted effort on the part of the NFL to rig the system so that Boger would get the Super Bowl assignment. The league's response? Nuh-uh.

Why would the league want Boger to receive its biggest honor and most visible and choice assignment? There are two theories. One—which the Times and Yahoo articles dance around until the last possible moment—is diversity. Boger ("who is black," the Times notes in the 18th paragraph of a 22-paragraph story) was hired by the NFL under a recruiting program specifically designed to find minority candidates, and will be just the second African-American referee to work a Super Bowl, after Mike Carey in 2008.


Regardless of motivation, the league required multifaceted machinations to get Boger this assignment. They had to clean up his grades, and they had to relax their own rules of eligibility.

After each game, officiating supervisors review the video and assign "downgrades" for blown calls or blatantly missed calls. Boger received eight downgrades over the season, not an unusually high number, but more than enough to disqualify an official from working the playoffs. But refs are allowed to appeal their grades, and Boger appealed all of his—Football Zebras, citing one current and one former official, reports that all eight were overturned and stricken from Boger's record. Yahoo's sources confirm.

Former referee Gerry Austin says going eight-for-eight is unheard of. "If you could get two downgrades changed in the course of the year, you've done real well," he told the Times.

This might be the first time in a long time that I have zero interest in the game. I might put it on in the background and probably pay more attention to the commercials, but as a whole I'm really don't care.

And it's not even a butthurt Stillers fan thing. Even when the Eagles and Patriots went a few years ago, I watched most of the game and I couldn't stand either one of those teams.

I had an offer to join a $10 block pool at work. By the time I got back to the office, that pool and a second one that was later opened was filled.

Bunch of gambling addicts in my office.

Ray Lewis' cleats for the game are amazing. It's a shame tomorrow is the last time we will ever get to watch one of the greatest linebackers of lal time.
