Some football fans express their enthusiasm by wearing the jerseys of their favorite players. Others paint themselves in team colors. And some, like Alex Zerbe, sing.

Zerbe is apparently very excited that the Seattle Seahawks are headed for the Super Bowl. Mr. Zerbe's rap accompanies a video that features a pogo stick, the old pie-in-the-face gag, and several bad dancers in various blue and green costumes jumping around, one of them with a huge, yellow thing on his or her head. In one improbable sequence, Zerbe himself jumps on a car and dunks a small basketball.

Mr. Zerbe's Denver counterpart, a fellow who calls himself madfanatic, all one word, has built a masterpiece of rap in honor of the return of the Broncos to the Super Bowl, called Blue and Orange.

Would you give it an eight because it has a drum machine and you can dance to it?

If not, before you turn thumbs down on the madfanatic, consider the context of his achievement. I mean, not so very long ago, the Chicago Bears were subjecting football fans to "The Super Bowl Shuffle."
