Most intersting mention of Passat in the "news"

I read this editorial on ESPN and was surprised at the mention of the Passat near the end.

I don't think espn columns are that much harder to read than a "nueral pshyc." book.  :)

The column was rather long and basically ranted about reporters not being able to ask any questions they want of the spuer bowl players/coaches.  Even the "candid" questions are canned ahead of time.  Plenty of somewhat funny examples.

So at the end of the column a reporter just has to askhis question despite the rules and then:

There are a lot of football references to Passats, I recall last years Playoffs or Superbowl and they interviewed a female Raider fan and she wa sall decked out.  They asked what kind of ar she drove, a Passat.
