Men's Fitness magazine ranks Chicago as America's 5th fattest city and Indianapolis as #13 (Seattle is the "fittest", by the way). I'm hoping for a close, exciting and heart-stopping Super Bowl that will help cull the herd of overweight Midwestern football fans, saving the rest of us from the burden they put on our national health care system.

I'll be watching just to see Rex Grossman fall apart like a cheap siut.

Via Atrios, here's another reason to support the Bears. Indy coach Dungy supports the anti-gay Indiana Family Institute.

Gabriel -- Seemed like the entire Colts organization owed it all to God judging from the rah-rah postgame last weekend. The Mighty God has revealed himself as a finally fickle Patriots fan. Figures.

Antacid sales will be way up in Chicago the day after the Colts beat the Bears to a pulp.

Thanks for that link, Gabriel. That sheds an interesting light on Dungy's son's suicide last year.

After some back and forth with others over their predictions and analysis, plus seeing the hype spread over the Colts' offense and Peyton Manning's ability, plus Rex Grossman's propensity for spectacularly bad performances... I stand by my 'Bears by 2 touchdowns' prediction. On top of the Bears' punishing D, getting to play in warmer climes than Chicago, and the Colts having to play outside in this game, Grossman loved the spotlight while playing college ball in Florida (oh, BTW, Miami is in Florida, last I checked), and something tells me he's going to have a massive game, while Peyton struggles.

Also, 98% of people in pro sports are giant Christian homophobes (how many athletes have you seen come out in today's more enlightened times? Exactly), so Dungy's support of an anti-gay church isn't a huge surprise.

My mother's anti-homosexual. I should disown her.

The NFL's a lifestyle that cashes a good check.

Wait -- we have a national health care system?
