Pregnant pause: In keeping with the "family way" theme of the HarBowl, the Ravens' kicker gave birth to a helmet during a practice before the great big game, which had a pause of its own, thanks to an electrical outage.

The Superdome was plunged into darkness early in the second half of the Super Bowl. Though facts were slow in coming, one report had it that the replacement hamsters in the generator room had blown a fuse. (The NFL's usual power-generating rodents have been locked out in a labor dispute, necessitating the use of less competent hamsters from high schools across the land as well as the Lingerie Football League.)

A team from the University of British Columbia tried to cement its place in history at the 39th annual event at Mt. Seymour in North Vancouver, where more than 400 engineering students from across Canada competed with their homemade toboggans that must have a concrete running surface.

Along with a new line of puddle-jumpers, Adidas Golf has introduced a lightweight, remote control drone. Cleverly designed to replicate actual PGA duffers like Mr. Snedeker here (amazingly life-like isn't it?), the drones will play an essential role in monitoring and harassing terrorists and cheaters on links across the nation by launching precision missile strikes.
