Just keep telling yourself that


Have you stashed away your chicken wings and beer? It’s Super Bowl Sunday! If you’re not a football fan, maybe you will tune in to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at halftime. Apparently, in the wake of the Janet Jackson fiasco four years ago, the Super Bowl folks seem satisfied that decidedly middle-age rockers are the safest way to go. It suits me, although the show inevitably is overproduced. If only they’d set up a wooden platform at midfield with a few amps, I might not wander around the snack table for 45 minutes.
