The Super Bowl Edition

I've got to be honest, I didn't watch a single down of professional football this year. I view it as my civic duty, however, to be excited about the Super Bowl - hence the themed newsletter. First off, a quick reminder: it's spelled "Bowl" not "Bowel." Super Bowel is something entirely different.
