I know we have a lot of international readers, so if you've somehow ignored the news, today is Super Bowl day! Ah, yes, the wonderful American tradition of grown men clobbering each other.
I'm figuring many of you will want to talk about it, so here is an open thread and information about how to watch. If you're curious about which team our site is officially rooting for, well, that's a good question. Neither team really compares well to the Dallas Mavericks, which is usually how I would decide this. However, you could argue the Patriots are very much like the Spurs, minus the "cheating" but plus some very, very lucky ping pong balls. With that in mind, go Seahawks!
Anyhow, you guys behave and enjoy what should be a much more fun Super Bowl than last year's. We'll be back with Mavericks coverage on Monday, including a look at the February schedule and a Rajon Rondo injury update.
