Super what?

Jan 30, 2007 3:19 AM

Regarding Super Bowl parties these days, the sentiment in advertising mostly is low key.

That’s due to the mighty NFL deciding that the use of the term Super Bowl is theirs alone, thus anything regarding the nation’s biggest sports fest has to use another term if not a part of league productions.

Since the NFL opts to be politically correct, even at the risk of hypocrisy —flaunting touts on every telecast and frequent mentions of Las Vegas point spreads in a nation where sports gambling is illegal.

Yeah, and we’re the Easter Bunny.

So, whether it’s The Big Show, or Big Party or Big Dance whatever, there’s plenty going on around town that resorts and local pubs are planning but not really publicizing.

Here are some going to the extra yard to get the word out.
