Did you hear that the Super Bowl is this Sunday? We'll be awash with tons of pre-game hype, but Science Buzz injects a healthy dose of science with its football report this week. This will likely be the only place you can find out about the A-11 offense, a new twist on the game invented by coaches at Piedmont High School in California. Scientific American reports on how the undermanned school has been able to knock off bigger, stronger foes by bending the traditional rules for running football plays. And it is also where you can read about how to apply science to selecting your fantasy football team next year. (I probably shouldn't share this information with the other guys in my fantasy league.)

Thor, have you seen the awesome new Vikings' action figure that's now on the market? I suggest you order one soon - they're going like hotcakes.
