I love it. I don't understand it, but I love it. Obviously the NFL or whoever is responsible for this ridiculousness is aware of the rules of entertainment.
Rule #570 - The following will always bring down the house...
2. Scantily clad chicks
3. The Electric Slide
4. Dudes getting hit in the nuts

In addition to dudes in drag and those other monstrosities above, these links will also always bring down the house...

By the way, I find it rather ironic that with the Steelers in the Super Bowl, all of my friends in the sports blogosphere want to send me links to things they've written about the Steelers or just the game in general, and yet they're not linking to this blog, which is, of course a STEELERS blog.
