Oh, and Jerry, I am verrry unsure about this, but is it: Geomorphologists?
I hadn't heard of it, but I see that it is the study of the evolution and configuration of landforms. Can't say that I've known a geomorphologist either!
I found morph and then ologists and put them together.

Well, to be honest, I had a hunch that it might really be asparagus. However, I knew that I was dealing with a true logophile here, and I just couldn't make that assumption!

Fortunately I skipped the halftime show, stripper, streaker, and all. But in general I thought the commercials were disappointing and in poor taste. Particularly the flatulent horse, and the brawling oldsters. And the game itself was not a sparkling performance on either side, either, even if it was exciting.
