Watching the Eli Manning be crowned Super Bowl MVP is clearly not how you wanted the 2011 NFL season to come to an end, but at least the game against the Patriots itself was pretty damn entertaining, making for an enjoyable final night of football. Here are a few of the things we liked about this year’s Super Bowl (and some we didn’t), from our party food, the entertaining commercials, and Bill Bellichick to Madonna, LMFAO, and the dog with sneakers on.

We had dinner with Takeru Kobayashi, the greatest eater in the world, at one of my favorite Philly restaurants. He talks Wing Bowl, how he trains, and how he’s a foodie at heart.

The beginning of the end of Philadelphia being a two newspaper town seems to be here. We’re told guild members were informed via email about management’s plans to align the Daily News’ and Inquirer’s sports staffs along with the Philly.com staff to work together to better compete with outsiders as opposed to each other.

Ordinarily we don’t put much stock in whatever Dave Spadaro has to say, but it’s hard to argue any writer is closer to the organization than he is. That’s why we found this little nugget about Juan Castillo’s job status interesting, buried halfway into Spud’s recent “News, Notes And Things I Think” post over at PE.com.

It’s safe to say David Akers knows a thing or two about being the goat. Having been through it himself, he jumped to the defense of his 49ers teammate, Kyle Williams, who had two ugly turnovers in the NFC Championship game, the later of which basically handed Eli Manning and the Giants a trip to the Super Bowl on a silver platter.

Now we’re extra sad that Baltimore couldn’t pull out a win yesterday because Terrell Suggs is the man. Although, I suppose if the Ravens had won, we never would have gotten this TV gem.

What a rough Sunday for Philly fans. And now we have to watch this guy play in another Super Bowl.
