QT Super Bowl XLIX final countdown updVIII

Super Bowl
A poll has found that XLI percent of Americans believe the New England Patriots cheated their way to Super Bowl XLIX, with  XVII percent believing the Patriots did not cheat and XXXII percent having no opinion, while the final count of NFL players arrested since Super Bowl XLVIII is XLVI, which isn’t to be confused with the arrests of CDX pimps and prostitutes by Arizona law enforcement in preparation for the weekend. . . with II days to go.

Downward bound

QT Super Bowl XLIX countdown updVIII

Chicken Wings
News Item: “. . . 1.25 billion chicken wings will be consumed during Super Bowl XLIX. . .  .
If one laid 1.25 billion wings end-to-end, assuming an average length of 3.5 inches, they would stretch to and from CenturyLink Field in Seattle to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., almost 28 times. . . . The wings would also circle the Grand Canyon 120 times. It’s enough wings to put 572 on every seat in all 32 NFL stadiums, and they weigh about 5,955 times more than the poundage of the Seahawks and Patriots entire 52-man rosters combined. . . .”
And we haven’t even gotten to the chips and dip. . . .
