Nothing beats covering the Super Bowl. For me, that didn't mean watching from a seat in Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. I took it all in from my personal ottoman empire -- 10.5 hours spent on a comfortable couch with an oversized hassock at the ready. NBC game producer Fred Gaudelli said his worst nightmare in planning the telecast of Super Bowl XLIII would be to have a blowout -- of course, that didn't happen. The see-saw fourth quarter was the cap on a wonderful day of viewing, one that should give NBC both ratings and critical success.

Sheryl Crow, U2 and Garth Brooks offer inspirational performances on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
To paraphrase Jon Landau, the Rolling Stone critic who wrote one of the first ever raves for Bruce Springsteen, I have seen NASCAR's future, and it's name is Joey Logano. Granted, the 18-year-old Logano didn't quite tear up New Hampshire Motor Speedway last Sunday the way the 25-year-old Springsteen did at the Harvard Square Theatre in Cambridge on May 9, 1974, but he made an auspicious debut nonetheless. Driving the No. 96 Toyota for Hall of Fame Racing, Logano excelled just by making it from the green flag to the checkered -- a result that eluded such Cup studs as Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson in their debuts.

"How we doin'?," he asked, pointing to the screen. There was no response. Next he tried a few inquisitive gestures. Thumbs up? Way up? Down? No one shifted his or her gaze.
