Speaking of ads, Tim Tebow will be in a Super Bowl ad tonight. There was talk of his pro-life spot being rejected and there was some truth to that. Tonight’s ad was idea #4. (National Lampoon)
Madden 10 says that the Saints are going to win the Super Bowl. That would be notable if the simulation wasn’t run by a New Orleans newspaper that probably ran their simulation at least 50 times. (Times-Picayune)
