    In a recession, even the Super Bowl takes a hit

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- When the Super Bowl festivities roll into Tampa late next month, the party blitz and corporate spending that surround the big day may take a hit because of the economic crisis.

    Sponsors have been slower to commit. Companies are scaling back plans, carefully watching expenses, bringing fewer guests and pushing back travel bookings. The private party circuit will be missing a few staple destinations, including the annual Sports Illustrated fete.

    Remind me later, I'll feel sorry for the NFL and Goodell then.
    I hope Goodell chokes on his next meal.

    While that's true, fines are given to charities.

    but in fairness Allen get's to take a tax write-off as well, not a tax credit.

    But a write-off is at least something considering how much the players get taxed.
