the ramparts we watched
How pathetic yet lovable we Americans are. The day after the Superbowl, people stand around at work and discuss which commercials were best (Pepsi Max this year) and how Christina Aguilera screwed up the words of the National Anthem (which of course is easy to do -- what the heck are "ramparts" anyway?), and within two weeks everyone (other than Packer fans) will forget which teams were even in the game. But a record-setting 111 million people in the U.S. watched the game. So somehow it's working -- a national, kinda twisted reason to party.
