The Barenaked Ladies are equal part rock musicians and comedians, so it's no surprise that they had jokes about the significance of the Super Bowl when they spoke to Yahoo! Sunday at the Bud Light Hotel in Indianapolis.
Lead singer and co-founder Ed Robertson expressed a bit of Canadian pride as he joked that America's biggest sporting event had yet to reach the significance of his country's Stanley Cup National Hockey League playoffs.
"Obviously, the Stanley Cup is watched and enjoyed by more people worldwide than the Super Bowl," he said with a sarcastic smile. "I take my hat off to the NFL. They are really trying hard to build an audience and as an underdog sporting franchise I expect good things. Right now they sit somewhere between jai alai and table tennis."
Drummer Tyler Stewart chimed in that football is outranked by several other sports. "Hockey, women's hockey, curling, and lacrosse, baseball, basketball, then football."
