    Now that's what I call super bowl movement!

    (Not sure whether this falls under "light relief")

    Yup.
    Now the strange things are
    (1) Bob is a darn good writer; I follow him daily and it is unlike him to make a mistake
    (2) His url reflects the typo (so we know he has some automation in his blog production)

    Perhaps it's intentional?

    Could be; like my map of Buffalo/Niagara that has "US" on the Canadian side of the boundary line and "Canada" on the US side (apparanetly to thwart copyright infringements).
    But it's not like Bob Bly to employ something as crude as a public vowel-movement to attract attention.

    It is the cola-on after all

    @ Chris: I believe Super ďBowelĒ was intentional to point out how the cost of advertising on the Super Bowl may be equal to flushing your money down the toilet.

    Regarding Pepsiís move, I think itís very wise and also a trend that many are likely to follow. That is, shifting ad money to the Internet.

    Itís SO much more cost-effective these days. A perfect example: I canít believe how much local car dealers still spend to run their ads on TV when they could get so much more bang for their buck by targeting demographics and geographics online.

    Coach: Iíd like to go with your pun, but unfortunately, Chris is right: itís a typo. Though it fits.

    Thanks for the update chrisgreaves I am still chuckling over it all and despite the fact that it was a "typo"
    doesn't detract from the original posting by HansV positing it could possibly be intentional. Switching to Coca Cola for half-time sponsorship made it a very plausible presumption Anyone for colonic hydrotherapy

    Katie Couric isn't you? I'd love to hear about it...

    Hey Jude

    BTW my "educated beyond his own intelligence" brother also presumed it was "intentional."
