Super Bowl Preview: The Battle For The Universe

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

The time has finally come for our last post about an actual football game (except for the one where we complain about the Pro Bowl). Super Bowl XLI (41) is here and we couldn't be more apathetic about it. Say what you want about us being Chargers homers who are ...
