Flying a banner over the Super Bowl

Atheists will get somewhat of a plug at the big dance.

 Don't look for it at

 Don't look for it at gametime.  It's in the air right about now, for just a little while.  I'm glad they were able to do it though.

My guess is that FOX News

My guess is that FOX News will unwittingly give this the press it deserves so that they can generate "outrage" for ratings.... It won't be shown live, but it 8will* be publicsized.

Unless I'm wrong.

I knew that. It is way before pre game early in the morning, but the tail gating started 1,000 years ago, so there will be plenty of a crowd tomorrow morning.

This is way better than their last attempt. They bought the naming rights for 30 mins to the stadium but THE DAY AFTER and at noon, when the sports channels were on repeat.

Look at it this way, 11 years ago the word "atheist" flying over a big game like this, wouldn't have happened.

I am just waiting for the next Pat Tilman to hold a Super Bowl Trophy and say, "I'd like to thank my team, my coach, my fellow payers and the support of this atheist group".

How the fuck would they sensor that?

For the love of Jake, and FSM I hope so.

Oh, when they do that, I wonder if they will also flip out about Al Jazera reporting about this game? I thought there was a law against Muslims liking anything associated with the west?

 I'm not sure where my head

 I'm not sure where my head was when I made that post this morning.  I meant it'll be up early morning tomorrow.  Somehow I thought it was Sunday this morning.
