I have little to say on the Super Bowl, except that since Slate writer Charles Pierce described the Arizona Cardinals appearance in the Super Bowl as "at best a fluke and, at worst, a disgrace," I now feel obligated to root for Arizona out of pure spite for Slate.
These feelings are not unlike the dirty feeling that people had when the more famous and successful Cardinals (of St. Louis baseball fame) won the World Series in 2006.
