Super Bowl LXII, Footnote 1.

The bye week before the Super Bowl, large amounts of newsprint, videotape, radio waves, and pixels, some of them mine, were spent analyzing and/or commenting upon the fact Tom Brady missed two practices ten days before the game nursing a moderately sore ankle.

In the Super Bowl itself, Plaxico Burress of the Giants turned in a reasonably important play and was on the field for every offensive snap. Burress missed EVERY Giants' practice between the NFC championship and the Bowl.

The sports commentariat owes Allen Iverson an apology. Obviously, his ideas about showing up for practice aren't weird and insubordinate-they're just logical.
