I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? Yeah yeah, so another Super Bowl Super-Duper Sunday has come and gone, and I’m figuring that for fans of the Colts and for those who tune in to spectate all the “great” TV commercials, last Sunday fell far short of the super-est of Sabbaths.
