NFL Will Allow Church Super Bowl Parties

It's been over a year since I posted an item about the NFL's allowance of saloons showing the Super Bowl on large screens while actively prohibiting the same permission to church groups. As I put it then, "Talk about unsportsmanlike conduct!"

So I was pleased to see that a heavy blitz put on by conservative bloggers, talk show hosts, and a couple of politicians pressured NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell into reversing their call.

But, interestingly enough, not until after this year's contest was history. Why the delay?
