One thought on “Super Bowl for Dummies”
  1. What I want to know is why the NFL is considered a non-profit and except from paying Federal Taxes, which ends up costing Americans just a bit more out of their own pockets.

    Also, with all the security around these events provided often by tax-payer funded officers, it makes me wonder who’s pockets are being lined.

    I would investigate this further myself, but why? I have more local fish up there to fry.
