06.Feb.2011 Advanced Superbowl Metrics

Taking a break from developing an intensive taxonomy of our built environment and trying to understand its place in early post-modern thought, we turn to the Superbowl.  For our entertainment we developed a set of advanced superbowl metrics.  Feel free to add your own and/or play along.
