VENICE BEACH, CALIFORNIA — The Super Bowl is not just America’s favorite sporting event. There are parties, family gatherings, barbecues, chicken wings and lots of beer, but it is also a multi-media affair with over 90 million viewers plus countless more tracking the game online or tuned-in through the radio airwaves. You know it. Americans love the final grid-iron battle.

With so many fans, the underdog Giants and undefeated Patriots, Sunday’s classic is going to be spicy, as Governor Schwarzenegger put it. Super Tuesday is just around the bend, and there is similar energy, political fervor, surrounding Tuesday’s Primaries. The NFL does a great job of making the Super Bowl convenient for its millions of fans to watch, but when we told people that Sunday’s game was moved to Tuesday afternoon, it was their responses that were spicy.

    Well then why not try moving voting from Tuesday to Sunday, and providing chicken wings and beer at the voting booths…or something like that, right?
    If that’s your point, to change the logistics of voting, then it’s a good one. Why not ask people straight out if they think Voting for our representatives is equally (or more) important to our Country’s well-being than is playing the Super Bowl? Who knows, they might conclude on their own that it is, and then you’ve GOT THEM!

    Fantastic fun.

    Speaking of Tuesdays, I just heard this “Super Tuesday” song that you guys might get a kick out of.
