It’s Super Bowl Time Once Again


Whenever the Super Bowl comes around, it makes me think of the year the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts were playing (Super Bowl XLIV, 2010). The media got a lot of millage out of the fact that New Orleans is associated with the practice of Voodoo. My favorite example of that hype being the “Dirty Bird” commercial, included here for your viewing pleasure. Not only is it an excellent example of sympathetic magic in action, it gave me something to tease my husband with whenever he would get hopeful about the Arizona Cardinals making it to the Super Bowl. Oddly enough, that phrase “A dirty bird can’t fly with a broken wing” has yet to fail me.
