Post by Jay Busbee
It's Super Bowl time, and since nobody on the planet covers the Super Bowl better than Yahoo! Sports' Shutdown Corner (it's true), we brought on SC head honcho Doug Farrar to talk a bit o' football. Doug's a busy man, so we only got him for a few minutes, but he gave us the lowdown on the following:
• His prediction for the game. (Spoiler: someone's going to lose!)
• Which element of the Giants' offense/Patriots' defense (and vice versa) will determine the outcome of the game.
• Whether this is a referendum on the greatness of Eli Manning, and whether the Giants now have a dynasty in the making.
• How Peyton Manning could reshape the NFL as we know it ... or not.
• Whether he interviewed Madonna or Drew Brees.
From there, we segue into Super Bowl party tips, justifications for rooting for (or against) yet another Boston team win, the godawful ads, and so on. It's good stuff, and we think you will enjoy it. Really. We do.
WHY IS THIS NEWS is the Yahoo! Sports Blogs' all-sports podcast, covering sports (and movies, and television, and whatever else strikes our fancy) through the eyes of our esteemed experts. We, as always, are Jay Busbee, the editor of From The Marbles and Devil Ball, and Kevin Kaduk, the editor of Big League Stew, and you are our reader/listener, and we thank you for that.
