A plea to NFL pooh-bah Roger Goodell, who played Debbie Downer in Miami by dwelling on labor strife and then expressed interest in holding a Super Bowl at the new, still-roofless Giants Stadium in 2014. Good sir: On Sunday at kickoff time, it was 30° (19° with windchill) in East Rutherford, N.J.
So much to riff on during Sunday's big game—Tracy Porter's haircut; the omnipotence of Arcade Fire; a late-night TV truce?!—yet Twitter was recurrently on the fritz, spurring John Daly to tweet, "your dang WHO DAT nation just broke my Twitter! LMAO."
