The Miami Herald evidently has run out of non- football stories about the Super Bowl. A story on the front page of the metro section reported that the Miami-Dade County sewer department is hoping a temporary loss of water pressure can be avoided at halftime Sunday night because of mass toilet flushing. No, really. The story encouraged fans to use single-ply toilet paper and reported that nationwide the simultaneous flushing will move enough water to fill Niagara Falls for 39 minutes. • Forget buying two tickets in the upper deck for Sunday’s game. Go for a suite. On Ticketsnow.com, a 20-person suite was purchased for $201,250. A 50-person suite is still available for $425,000 — down from the original asking price of $660,000. • Today is the annual dog-and-pony press conferences for the pregame and halftime entertainment. Last year, the Rolling Stones provided the highlight of the week. I doubt Billy Joel and Prince can provide the same kind of pizzazz. But I will attend to find out. — Ryan O’Halloran
