Covering Super Bowl Coverage

Or in this case, lack thereof.

There are certain stories that the assembled masses of media in the Motor City have refused to acknowledge. Sure, you guys can run the Stevens-Porter non-story into the ground but most of you can't take the time to report on what the hookers and strippers of Detroit (and Windsor) are doing this weekend.

Which conveniently leads me to my first story . . . the hookers and strippers of Detroit (and Windsor).

It appears the Super Bowl of football is also the Super Bowl for escorts and strippers. Girls from all over the country descend on Detroit (and the nearby Canadian city of Windsor) to make some extra cash (or just hook up with some one famous). Hmmm, maybe I should get my fake Roethlisberger beard and some plane tickets to Detroit.

Speaking of Roethlisberger, Deadspin released these pictures of the Steelers quarterback having a good time some time ago. And this wouldn't be a big deal, except that the Steelers have refused to acknowledge the existence of the pictures. And newspaper editors, eager to suck up to the Steelers management have gone out of their way not to mention the pictures.

Finally, did you know Matt Hasselbeck has been hit by lightning? You know you are being overlooked when your starting quarterback's near death experience has been largely ignored.
