Imagine being an average, law-abiding citizen doing your civic duty and then being told my a judge that you are not allowed to watch the Super Bowl. Better yet, you're a juror on a trial in Boston, and your beloved Patriots are in the big game. Alas, the judge forbade it. No Super Bowl for you.

Super Bowl XLIX is shaping up to be one of the greatest Super Bowls in NFL history.

Overall the coaches did a rather good job filling out the NBA All-Star Game lineups. Three reserves for an Atlanta Hawks team that’s completely destroying the Eastern Conference right now is well-warranted and first-time All-Star Klay Thompson was the correct inclusion in a crowded Western Conference backcourt. A replacement for Kobe Bryant should be announced shortly and Dwyane Wade could also mi
