Reese's Piece: Super Bowl XLVII prop bets

It is the best of times. It is the worst of times. It is the Super Bowl. The climax signaling the end of another football season is a treacherous one for sports fans. Stale story lines, bloated commercials breaks and, worst of all, non-football fans who don't realize they're to be seen and not heard can sully what should be the greatest sports day of the year.

So this year, I called in friend and drifter Mike Camerlengo, who gave me a number of things to watch for during the game to keep my interest. Some people call these "props." I prefer the term "natural selection." Baby needs a new set of grills.
