    An ad in Friday's (1/24/03) Seattle Times (Ticket Section, page 9H) for the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma says they are having a Super Bowl HDTV party on the biggest HDTV in America - 30 feet wide and 20 feet high. Let's see - that's only a 1.5:1 aspect ratio. Could be worth a visit if you really want to see the SB in HD, and have no other way. If it blows, there is still time to get home and watch Alias after the game.

    The screen doesn't require an aspect ratio of 1.77:1 to be HDTV compliant. In fact, an aspect ratio of 1.5:1 could give the sports book the opportunity to flash extra statistics at the bottom of the screen without covering up the original HDTV image.
