    it drives me utterly crazy that the NFL has such a grip on the "Super Bowl" Get your supplies for "the big game" it's sofa king lame

    I kinda get not letting companies use the term in advertising, but really, a cooking show or website can't say "here are some dishes for your Super Bowl party."

    Maybe you've seen Stephen Colbert's "Superb Owl" coverage, where he moves one letter in the name and tosses in some Owl facts along with his football analysis to get around the NFL's team of lawyers.Colbert should be allowed to use the term "Super Bowl" under fair use considering his show's satirical nature, but Viacom has asked him to refrain from saying it because the NFL is so aggressively litigious about protecting its trademark that it has companies running scared, policing themselves.

    We're going to a Walking Dead con on super bowl Sunday. I'm hoping that means there will be less people there.

    This is why women shouldn't be allowed to watch football.
