Super Bowl XLIII


The talented Aaron Draplin, one half of the team responsible for Field Notes, re-imagines this year’s Super Bowl logo.

Here, for comparison’s sake, is this year’s official logo:


I don’t know about you, but I like Draplin’s version way better.

Carson Palmer on OSU Football

“I don’t watch what I say. I cannot stand the Buckeyes, and having to live in Ohio and hear those people talk about their team, it drives me absolutely nuts…. It’s amazing to hear what those guys think about that university and what they think about that football program and [Ohio State coach Jim] Tressel and all the crap I gotta put up with being back there. I just can’t wait for two years from now when ’SC comes to the ’Shoe and I get to hopefully, hopefully we’ll have a home game that weekend and I can go up there and watch us pound on them in their own turf and kind of put all the talk to rest. Because I’m really getting sick of it and I just can’t wait for this game to get here so they can come out to the Coliseum and experience LA and get an old-fashioned Pac-10 butt-whoopin’ and go back to the Big Ten … I can’t wait.”

—Former USC Quarterback and Current Cincinnati Bengal Carson Palmer
