Superbowl

    Next person or organization I see calling it the "Superbowl" I'm going to run over with a tank.

    Probably 75 percent of my Facebook friends call it the Superbowl, and today for the second day in a row (that I've noticed) my paper ran giant ads for sports bars or grocery stores calling it the "Superbowl". I'm having that fixed.

    Really, people? I mean, really? Superbowl? Do you call it the Bcschampionshipbowl, the Rosebowl, the Fiestabowl? The Capitalonebowl? Chickfilabowl? NOOOOO.

    I don't even know how one gets off typing this terribly stupid mistake, let alone doing it often enough that it's seemed to have caught on.

    Sigh... We're all doomed.

    Funny, I clicked on this thread with the sole intent of a two-word post:

    "Super Bowl"

    Are business saying "Superbowl" as a way to get around copyright infringement and not having to call it "The Big Game"?

    Better question:
    When can we finally do away with the stupid Roman numerals?

    I thought about that. If so, I at least sort of understand. Though, I still think it makes us -- my paper and our civilization -- look stupid.

    That's some of it. But stupidity is a bigger culprit.

    Hell, the sign in front of Hooters here was "Watch the Superbowl here - Packer's vs. Steeler's."

    I like them. It has helped me relearn what they mean.

    Don't laugh. Spell check screwed me on a high school paper about the Superb Owl once.

    Aren't they doing away with those after 50? I thought I read that somewhere, but I could be wrong.

    Can't wait to see what they do with L. I mean, L?? Makes me think of Laverne and Shirley, that big fancy L on Laverne's chest.

    IL should also look good on a logo.
