    Going to the game. Have a relative that works for the NFL and he's found me an extra. I'm the only person in my family out of my parents and my brother that hasn't been to one.

    Why are the ticket prices falling so much?

    This isn't a new phenomenon... but some of the reasons include less New England demand thanks to their persistent success, security hassles as the game, the exorbitant price of travel/hotel that is included in anybody traveling for the SB, less of a "home game" experience (most Texans fans enjoy the tailgating aspect just as much as the game itself... otherwise people now have great home theater setups that make watching the game live quite enjoyable), and Atlanta not really having a large nation-wide following (as opposed to if the Packers, Steelers, or Cowboys made it).

    No accident, that playbook was in the bathroom for at least 10 minutes before it was recovered, and whatever happened in there we will never know. Belicheck and New England nation are bastard cheaters. How many times in your life was you stuff accidentally picked up by someone else. Seriously. It only happens in the movies, and it only happens when something shady is going down.

    Could be a false playbook to throw New England off.

    With the amount of money involved, if you can't keep your playbook secure, it's your fault.

    Kind of a boring Super Bowl week so far. No drama at all.

    Went to SuperBowl Live yesterday. Great turnout. Patriot fans were out-numbered 3 to 1... makes sense..

    Glad the city repped with no problems. Only wack thing was NFL Experience selling out too early.

    Decent weather all week too. Nice - knock on wood for no rain today

    Did you deny Jerry Jones access to the playboy party again, lol. That would be epic.
