The Indianapolis-based Super Bowl is in a few days, the Indiana Pacers have clearly already trumped the Tri-State Area New Jersey Nets with their retro ABA uniforms, and the Pacers squarely topped the Nets by a 106-99 score on Tuesday night.

Of course, one thing the Eastern Seaboard has on Middle America is the fact that no writer from the Eastern Seaboard would ever use a phrase like "squarely topped." So, I suppose, we're tied.
Your move, Jersey.
