FOX just aired one of the many very special pregame hype videos that are sure to come in the next 45 minutes or so. The theme was perfection, it was narrated (quite well) by Russell Crowe, and there were images of the Mona Lisa, the Sistene Chapel, and Dr. Martin Luther King.
The theme was perfection, which led into talk about the Patriots quest of 19-0 ... and I don't know. I'll be the first to acknowledge the Patriots historical greatness if they do go 19-0, but we're putting them in the same breath at Dr. King now? I'm a tad uncomfortable with that.
I realize that the Super Bowl pregame show is something to be avoided if you don't care for hype and hyperbole, but the Patriots being compared to Martin Luther King Jr.? We might want to tone that down juuuuuust a bit.
