The Detroit Lions aren’t playing today, so that must mean it’s the Super Bowl. Game on!

Prediction? Don’t take this to your bookie, but I’ll go Pats: 27 — Seahawks: 23 — Jokes about “deflated balls”: 14. (Update: Pats 28, Seahawks 24… I got pretty close)

All I know is I get another excuse to make my favorite game-day snack: Ground sirloin combined with hot/spicy sausage combined with Velveeta and spread on cocktail rye — then bake until your cardiologist calls and asks what the hell you think you’re doing.

If you’re not into the game, have at any other topic, such as this Des Moines Register poll that’s sure to bring a buzzkill to any “Run Warren Run” house party/ice cream social(ist):
