"Bro-Bowl or Universe-Bowl..?" 'Obama Da Dog'

Most call the Super-bowl a world championship, is it really a world championship
or just an arrogant American game billed for 2013 as the "Bro-bowl?"  Enjoy...


Aloha, Check out my opinion article in the 02-02-13 edition
 of the Kaua'i Garden island news, "Arrogant Bowl"

The National Football League where the minimum salary even for a third string bench warmer is approximately $300,00 a year, and many of the super-stars make in excess of 20 million a year along with outrageously generous signing bonuses.

The 2013 Superbowl  rivals two brothers against each other, blood brothers that is. Jim Harbaugh the head coach of the San Francisco 49er's and John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. This Superbowl is being  christened as the Bro-bowl and Harbaugh bowl.

The only thing certain about  the upcoming Superbowl  is that Jack and Jackie Harbaugh the parents of John and Jim will be able to  say, Our son's team won the Superbowl!

TV commercials will cost 3.8 million dollars for a 30 second spot."The cheapest ticket available on the ticket resale Web site Stub-Hub is being sold for $2,119. The most expensive ticket on the site is a suite that is being valued at over $315,000, while the highest-priced individual seat is going for $53,333.69, not really affordable for the average family of 4.

Every member of the losing team will receive $42,000 and 
very member of the winning team will receive $88,000 
additional to their contracts, along with a Superbowl Gold and Diamond ring worth around 50,000, even more when hocked on Ebay. There are 150 rings made for the winning team.

The irony of this game is no other country  besides the United States partakes in it, yet it is billed as a world championship? I am hoping in the future it will truly be a worlds championship with  Kenya, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Germany and many other countries involved.


Until such time as the Superbowl is  truly a world championship, or better yet a Universe championship,  I remain in favor and  like the idea of the Bro-bowl even after the Harbaugh's have their day  on the football field.
In fact why not just call it the 'Arrogant bowl' for young American millionaire men.    Go Niners!

so do the Buffalo Bills,. they play in Toronto each year, but they play other US teams in foreign countries, you missed the point. Point being there are no foreign teams in the NFL!
