The death of American values on the biggest American TV day.
I’ll have to go with the Ravens in this case — especially since you have a team from San Francisco that really has been knocked off its game here on the issue of gays in the locker room, gay marriage, gay rights.

Incensed by the completely innocuous Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial, sports editor Dave Zirin blogged his fury at The Nation yesterday. He admits the ad was “about as vanilla as an Andy Williams Christmas Special.” But it’s not the actual content of the ad that angers Zirin.
