Superbowl Numbers

February 10, 2010

You can read the boxscore for yourself, and you've seen about the TV ratings already. Here are some stats that you'll only see on theskinny.

4God's ranking in Louisiana Facebook "likes," behind New Orleans Saints, Black and Gold, and Drew Brees.
5God's ranking in New Orleans Facebook "likes." Shockey comes out of nowhere to leapfrog the almighty in the metro area.
96.7Drew Brees completion percentage after the first quarter Sunday, if you throw out the one that Coleston dropped and a spike to stop the clock at the end of the first half. (He was 29 of 32, I think I read.)
1Number of people that I've ever heard of who had slept with the Lombardi trophy in bed with them.
1Number of people in my house who like to sleep with their favorite toy. (Two if you count me falling asleep with my ipod playing.)
1Number of coaches (Peyton again) who've invited their players' kids to come run around on the field during the final pregame walthrough, so it could be a big event for the whole families.
9.5Rating, on a 1-10 scale, of Drew Brees wife.
6.25Rating, on a 1-10 scale, of the wife Brees would be able to pull were he to be a normal desk job kind of guy.
0Number of parades I've listened to on the radio, prior to yesterday.
12Approximate number of gigabytes that a TIVO'd Superbowl in high-def takes up in disc space.
13Days that it will take Carbonite to back up the game once I get the file transferred to my computer.
6Maximum number of hours I've slept in any given night since the game. Yesterday, I was up at 3:30 to watch highlights. Today, I woke up at 4:00.
0Number of Superbowl commercials that I've seen. I'm feeling a little bit inadequate in my ability to be socially conversant, but sooner or later, I'll watch that Tivo recording of the broadcast.

We had a great night out on Bourbon Street. I haven't worked up the nerve to check the pics and video that I took, but I'll post some of that stuff by the end of the week.
