I guess that settles it once and for all, God prefers ‘Cheers’ over ‘Frasier’.
Super Bowls are fun. God bless America.
I pains me to say this, but congrats Pat, you earned it.
Without a doubt, the dumbest play call in the history of the Super Bowl, and whatever happens in the future, will be that decision to pass instead of giving the ball to Marshawn Lynch or letting Wilson do a QB sneak.
@ESPNStatsInfo – Marshawn Lynch had 5 previous runs from the 1 this season and had scored only one touchdown.
Seattle’s offensive coordinator, if you trace the bloodlines far enough back, you’ll find he’s related to the military advisor that told Napoleon to invade Russia during the winter. He’s also related to the political advisor that told Nixon breaking into Watergate was a great idea without any consequences. On the other side of his family, you’ll find out he’s related to the guy that came up with New Coke.
Boston has some great sports fans, and that city has a ton of championships when you look at all their professional teams – that city is spoiled and don’t even know it. It’s always bugged me that at a Super Bowl victory parade they will start chanting “Yankee’s suck!”. I “get” it’s a Boston thing, but it would tick me off as a football player winning the championship and hearing a baseball chant at my victory parade.
Kurt Warner lost a Super Bowl to Tom Brady and the Patriots, which was the start of Spygate, so it must have stung at least a little bit presenting the Vince Lombardi to them.
At kickoff, there didn’t seem to be a lot of flashbulbs going off like we’ve seen in past Super Bowls, and I attribute that to people using smartphones instead of cameras.
I felt there were several dad-themed commercials during the Super Bowl this year that actually were positive and didn’t portray them as irresponsible bumbling idiots.
The Chevy commercial that blacked out didn’t bother me, but it sure did give people something to complain about on Twitter, which GM wanted.
I thought the Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel commercial was clever. I also got a kick out of the Pierce Bronson Kia commercial. Just the thought of such a distinguished looking man like Bronson driving a Kia, James Bond, is funny. Granted, Kia has upped their game over the years, but, you know.
The Snickers commercial with Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi was funny, but I can’t decide if I liked that one better than the Walter White one.
WifeGeeding was doing what she does best, being a supermom and a superwife. She let me and my buddy watch the game while she bathed the kids and put them to bed. Right before halftime she put the kids in the bathtub and came back to sneak in a little more of the game only to see the Nation Wide commercial of the kid drowning in the bathtub. That was an odd bit of timing.
Katy Perry owned it. It may not have been the best halftime performance, but it sure was entertaining. I think only a few small parts may have been lip-synched, and I could have done without Missy Elliott, but she needed a distraction for a costume change and to get harnessed into that NBC The More You Know shining star and for the stage to get reconfigured.
I got a kick out of some Detroit Lions fans tweeting about Katy Perry’s entrance on a lion – “The Lions finally made it to the Super Bowl!”
Loved how the shark mouths were singing with the song.
I was so happy to hear Oakland Raider and Dallas’ own Tim Brown finally made the Hall of Fame, as well as Charles Haley.
A small group from our neighborhood went to Top Golf on Saturday night. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but when it comes to social engagements, I start to tense up before the event. Thankfully, the company couldn’t have been more fun and we all had a blast. As I right handed person, I’ve always felt more comfortable batting and golfing using my left side. But yesterday I decided to try swinging right handed and was much better. I don’t know if I want to get rid of my left handed clubs, but I want to experiment more with the right handed variety.
Our pastor, like most others, uses PowerPoint during his sermon. I was thrown for loop when I saw “Amalgam of Easter Religions?” in reference to hope. But it turned out to be a typo as he verbally said “Amalgam of Eastern Religions?”.
Dale Hansen isn’t a churchy kinda guy, but at the end of his sports segment last night he said he attended Friendship West Baptist Church with a friend to listen to Pastor Freddie Haynes, someone he always wanted to hear preach. Hansen said, “I don’t care what your religion is, I don’t care if you have any religion at all. You owe it to yourself to hear Pastor Haynes at least once….. I have never heard anything like it, and I did not leave as I arrived.”
Serious question, why would someone display their license plate like this?
