    I agree with you, Moddy. Those things are expensive and you know when you buy them, you are going to see it $500 cheaper in six months.

    My wife, like Moddy's wife, must think we make a lot more money than we really receive.

    my wife turned it on yesterday afternoon, I rolled my eyes and told her the only people watching this are either gay or Subaru drivers, I only watched for 2 hours and this site and many of the sports blogs commented on it today, guess I am out of touch

    there was commentary by the legendary Harry Kalas

    My 12-year-old daughter watched it, and she loved it.

    And with Harry Kalas doing the play-by-play, Animal Planet had a better announcer than CBS.

    I talked to 2 people who were there. They said it was brutal. Cable Cam went down as did one sideline cam that overheated because it was covered.
    They also said as soon as they would wipe their lenses, they would be covered again.
    Notice we never complain about this on a regular season game? :)

    CBS had a very bad day. Now that I've had a day to think about, in this day and age that broadcast shoul be an embarrisment to CBS.

    Everyone in CBS sports should be hanging their heads in shame today.

    Their are many people who saw HD tv for first time while watching Super Bowl and are now wondering what the big deal is. When it works HD is great but it still seems very spotty from technical standpoint. A lot of uncontroables that must give directors and producers fits.

    I love Phil Sims but I do not think he correctly told the story of what was happening on field .

    markvid, Wow, I didn't even miss cable cam.

    30 seconds before kickoff Steve Tasker is doing an interview... The world is watching... and his mic peters out. It sounded like a classic dead battery.

    Millions in rights fees... millions in production costs... and the success of the telecast hinges on a .72 cent 9-volt battery.

    That was Wilcots' mike that went out. He was trying to interview Urlacher.

    any way you look at it, the coverage sucked major dong. CBS can rot in hell as far as i'm concerned for ruining what should have been a great day for millions of people.
