Column: No one actually saw Super Bowl parade
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
The New York Giants rode floats in a huge Super Bowl victory parade down Broadway Tuesday. The players watched themselves on their iPhones while a million New Yorkers watched themselves on their iPhones watching the parade.
