Hello everyone,

I’m really having a tough time choosing which of the two powerhouses I should go with for the “big game” on Sunday …

No, I’m not talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Arizona Cardinals. I could care less about either one of them. I’m trying to decide which delicious appetizer I should eat during the Super Bowl – nachos or chicken wings.

While chicken wings certainly are the favorite (and they certainly would be tasty alongside the delicious meat lovers pizza I plan on ordering), I love a good underdog story, so I’m tempted to go with the nachos.

Ugh. Why does this have to be so tough?

Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:

Lost: Down the Hatch – And nary an Archie in sight
Chris Kirkman is back this week with a brief recap and in-depth analysis of the Lost episode “Jughead.” After reading his theories, make sure to pour yourself a nice tall Long Island Milkshake, which Kirkman offers up as this week’s episode-inspired drink recipe.

Murphy’s Law – The Too Much Information Age
There are many perks to living in the Information Age, but Joel Murphy believes that we are faced with an overabundance of useless information these days. Everything from what Barack Obama’s daughters had for lunch to the itineraries of the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers is reported to kill time on the 24-hour news cycle and to keep RSS news feeds active.

Note to self – A battle of champions
All eyes may be on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals, but Brian Murphy believes that the most exciting action taking place this weekend will happen inside of the Octagon when Georges St-Pierre squares off against UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn at UFC 94 on Saturday night.

Outside of the In-Crowd – Things Assholes Like: The first in a series
This week, Courtney Enlow introduces a new and innovative feature entitled “Things Assholes Like.” For her first installment, Enlow talks about her upstairs neighbor, who likes to loudly play Wii at 3 a.m. despite the fact that the sweet columnist living below him is attempting to get her beauty rest.

Overrated – Joe Torre
Former Yankees manager Joe Torre is set to release a tell-all book talking about his time with the storied franchise. Not only does Ned Bitters believe that Torre shouldn’t gossip about what happens inside the clubhouse, he also believes that Joe Torre’s success as a manager is highly overrated.
