New England-Carolina on My Mind
We've been neglecting the Big Game on Sunday because, frankly, the New England-Carolina matchup leaves us, like most, wanting. Still, there's so,e great list-making going on out there in regard to the Super Bowl, and we have a duty to perform.

Under the posit that the Panthers are the most anonymous team in the NFL, Slate offers up the 10 Moments in Carolina History. Also at Slate, the uniformly brilliant Paul Lukas of Beer Frame Journal examines the evolving Patriots uniforms over the years. Incredibly, not only is this New England's fourth Super Bowl appearance, but the Pats have worn three different uniform designs in those appearance, a Super Bowl record.

ESPN's Page 2, of course, has some Super Bowl lists, including a list of the Top 10 Super Subs, with Washington's Doug Williams, then and now a black quarterback, at No. 1. Also, it's been around for awhile, but ESPN's list of the Top 100 Super Bowl Moments is impressive nonetheless. No. 100, by the way, addresses Williams' skin color. And if you are ranking the Super Bowls by memorable moments, Super Bowl X (Steelers 21, Cowboys 17) and Super Bowl XXIII (49ers 20, Bengals 16) tie for the top with six memorable moments apiece. Incredibly, both Super Bowl VIII (Dolphins 24, Vikings 7) and Super Bowl IX (Steelers 16, Vikings 6) rate not a single memorable moment.

Down in Houston for the game and you have some extra time on your hands? Sports Illustrated has a list of 15 Tourist Attractions in what is the nation's fourth biggest city. Curiously, the Enron headquarters don't make the list. And SI's Statitudes has a look at the Super Bowl by the Numbers.

USA Today has a list of 10 Houston Watering Holes where the ticketless will congregate for Sunday's game.

And finally, we know all you care about is the commercials, so here's a list of this year's Super Bowl Advertisers. Incidentally, did you know that you can now bet on which commercial will get the highest ranking in the USA Today's annual morning-after poll?>
