Definition of SUPER BOWL: One that is made of stainless steel.

As opposed to aluminum, such can withstand food acidulation without deterioration or discoloration, including such culinary technical processes as:

1. Marinating in tomatoes or tomato-based barbeque sauce
2. Marinating pigs feet in vinegar

It will also keep salads crisp and cold in the fridge and well through the meal after serving.

That is my idea of a "super bowl."

On the other hand, the usual misnomer commonly applied to the phrase "Super Bowl" in relation to football is incorrect. Football (which I consider to be a bunch of big gorillas chasing each other around a big field wanting to rearrange each others bodies and bash each others' faces and heads in, in order to capture something as silly as a little oval ball) is incorrect usage in the context of common parlance.

"Football" has nothing whatsoever to do with the sport of bowling, nor has it anything to do with what are actually correctly referred to as "bowls." Such use is semantically incorrect and use of the expression "Super Bowl" in the context of football should be discontinued.

The expression should only be used in relation to the sport of bowling, or as it relates to the technology of culinary science.

Definition of SUPER BOWL: One that is made of stainless steel.

Other notable advantages of such bowls: They will not break when dropped nor when subjected to sudden temperature changes, like glass bowls may.

Re: Football. The majority of people on earth who follow "football" as a sport also realize it is meant to be played with a black and white ROUND ball, not an odd, overly-pointed rugby ball.

But (re: both issues) such linguistic mistakes can only be expected from a nation that holds a sports playoff called the "World Series" to which no other nations' teams are invited.

Dear oh me, this definition of Super Bowl as "One that is made of stainless steel" appears to be (if I may coin an expression) "fallacious and lacks any substantive credibility."

Even a humble webmaster, such as myself, can see that this is an ill disguised excuse to talk about football (all be it the funny game played in America) and not "real football" which is played by the rest of the world.

Football, I would argue, is a game for bunnies, not one for real webmasters.

You want substantive credibility? Come over to my house, I'll clock you upside the head with one of my stainless steel bowls, and if the impact is not "substantive" and the concussion you receive does not rate as "Super," I'll happily concede the point. ;)

*snicker*

[As to the World Series, at various points a couple of Canadian teams have been "invited" simply by virtue of being part of the MLB, but since they haven't made it past the league championship series....]

OK vkaryl... In those years, they could have called it the North American Series. ;)

mivox: s'truth.... but then, other countries at this point seem more interested in feeding the US MLB with their best players than promoting joining in the league themselves....

[Edit: OY. THAT was truly off topic. Sorry!]

Oh, I think sports are still kosher. ;-) After all, it's hard to mix dairy with meat when you're not even cooking to begin with. (Just so long as they're not playing after sunset on Friday, or before sunset on Saturday, of course.)

..aside from in 1992 and 1993 when the Toronto Blue Jays won back-to-back World Series Championships and were the most dominant team in baseball..

I can quite understand Bretts concern -

Whilst looking through (the kitchen) Windows
Happily HIEW(ing) conies into my Super (stainless) Bowl
I was really C(ooking)
Making bunny DUMPBIN ...

Then DeBugging rabbits escaped ...

And (endless looping lapin) but the bunny buffer overflowed - with heaps it overflowed - finally resulting in the dreaded:

RABBITDLL32.EXE
This Foo thread has performed an illegal (cooking) operation (involving Animalia Chordata Mammalia Lagomorpha Leporidae) and will be shut down.
If the problem persists ...

How about a safe thread or ten on tribbles ...
I bake mine in clay: the fur stays stuck to the cooked clay. Not much meat per critter but then there are so many tribbles and so few chicken nuggets on Star Trek ...

Sorry ... my mind went wandering in strange places ... if found please return.
