    Pretty amusing, though they failed to get interviews with The Fridge or the Punky QB:

    "The Super Bowl Shuffle" and oral histories have jumped the shark.

    Oral history = too lazy to write it.

    Obviously, I enjoyed it, although it dragged on a little too much.

    It made me appreciate Dan Hampton even more.

    I did not realize the video was recorded the day after the Miami game.

    Had some interesting tidbits in there for those of us who, literally, still have the 45.

    I liked the part about how radio airplay was undercounted, so it just missed hitting the top 40. Would have been funny to hear Casey Kasem riff on Super Bowl Shuffle.

    I was about to say that oral histories seem to have become the flavor of the month.

    ' ... arguments will again heat up about whether the 1986 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears are the best t
    team in NFL history.'

    What measurable evidence is there to indicate the 1985 Chicago Bears are the best team in NFL history?
    They didn't go unbeaten.
    They don't have the statistically best defense.
    They don't have the statstically best offense.
    They don't have the statstically best special teams.

    I'm sure Penthouse talks about blowjobs and cunnilingus every month.

    Is there any evidence to support the argument that the 1985 Bears, winners of the 1986 Super Bowl, are the best team in NFL history?

    Whenever I think of the word "oral", I immediately think of Bill Simmons.....because everything from him sucks.
