At long last, the game is finally upon us. I love football, I love the Super Bowl, but even I have to admit the unrelented hype and coverage leading up to this spectacle of spectacles has worn thin.
Of course, as soon as the winner is crowned this evening, the winning team will have Super Bowl champion caps, t-shirts, etc. I've always wondered--what happened to the t-shirts, caps, etc for the team that didn't win the big game.
Today, an article
in the New York Times
answers that question: The items are put under lock and key and then sent to a developing nation through a relief organization.
The article also says the NFL goes to great lenghts to ensure said items never end up on e-Bay. I wonder if that's going to be a challenge to those who like to sell those rare items....
