And Another Thing


Your viewing choices for Sunday

Welcome, everyone, to the Sunday Before The Super Bowl, aka I Think This Would Be An Excellent Time To Sort My Junk Mail.

Really, the Sunday before the Super Bowl is the lousiest sports day of the year. I mean, you can't even watch NASCAR yet.

So here are your choices, in no particular order:

1. The NHL All-Star Game.

If it goes according to form, 937 goals will be scored and all the goalies will be hospitalized with post-traumatic stress syndrome. It isn't hockey, but what else are you going to watch?

(And no fair picking "Staring at a blank wall.")

2. The NFL Pro Bowl.

Sixty riveting minutes of groin-pull avoidance. Seriously, does anybody watch the Pro Bowl? Besides the 40-year-old guy who lives in his Mom's basement and plans his ample vacation time around Star Trek conventions?

3. "Law & Order: SVU." Can't get enough Mariska Hargitay.

4. "Law & Order." Or (choose one) Elisabeth Rohm, Jill Hennessy, Carey Lowell, Angie Harmon.

5. "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Because watching Vincent D'Onofrio blimp up from season to season is your best dieting tool.

6 through 8. "Law & Order: Misdemeanor Intent"; " Law & Order: The One We Intended To Make After Criminal Intent"; "Law & Order: We Just Thought We'd Make This One To Prove You'll Watch Anything With 'Law & Order' In The Title."

9. "Yes, Dear."

On second thought, scratch that last one. Nobody's going to watch that.
