SUPER BOWL XLVII OPEN THREAD

super-bowl-xlvii


Today is the holiest day of the year for NFL fans. The San Francisco 49ers will be facing the Baltimore Colts Ravens for the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans. It should be a good game. I really don’t like either team but I’m taking the Niners.

The bad news is President Attention Whore will getting his knob slobbed by Scott Pelley in a pregame interview. I’m guessing that football fans across the nation will be thrilled, just like when he preempted Monday Night Football to give a speech.

I’ll be watching the game at my son’s house. I expect y’all to behave until I get back.

    For those of you not into football there is a Walking Dead marathon on AMC.

    Well I’m looking forward to the ninth annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. Of course I won’t be able to avoid the Superbowl as my husband has it on the big TV and also monopolizes the medium TV to TIVO it in case he needs to re-watch any part of it, as if it won’t be all over the news and internet for the next week if anything controversial happens.

    The Ceremony of the Coin Toss always makes me a bit weepy.

  7. Good God, this may go down as the most humiliating defeat in SB history.

    Didn’t watch the half time show this year…thought I’d put better use of my time throwing out the garbage and doing the Super Bowl dishes. And to the performer I say, Take that Byot!!!

    So, we can’t even keep the power on for a superbowl. WTF?

    By the way, great hockey game we’re having between SF and Balt. I think they pumped in a few too many drugs before the game.

    We’ve switched back internet/tv providers to get a “new customer” discount. I like the old provider better but our discount ran out. SO we’re on retro tech for now.
    What a pain.

  11. trixta says:

    Tried watching an entire game this time around, but the power shortage has drained me of my patience. I think I’ll take a long hot bath instead….

    Really, what are the odds that two prominent sports events this year lose power? I wonder if pesky internet hackers have anything to do with this. Chinese hackers have been very busy lately….just saying.

      But the blackout made for so much twitter fun! 😀

      I didn’t watch it either, but apparently it made MO “proud.”

    Still rooting for the 49ers though. I’m nostalgic for Joe Montana and the way he willed his team to win, back in the day.

    someone pulled the plug on the superbowl

  14. The Ram truck commercial- “God made a farmer” was the best commercial I have ever seen- even better than the Budweiser commercials- and those have always been my favs!

      In this ad, a high school kid is going to the prom by himself. Bummer, bro. But his dad gives him the keys to his Audi. Hell yeah, bro. He cruises to the school and parks in the principal’s spot. Hell yeah, bro. He walks straight up to the prom queen and ambushes her with a kiss.

      Hell yeah, bro. What you feel like doing at that particular moment is more important than whether or not she wants to be kissed. Hell yeah, bro. She appears to be in a relationship with someone else, and there is no implication offered in this commercial that this is something she would want. Hell yeah, bro. It turns out that she happened to be OK with it, thereby justifying everything. Hell yeah, bro. The commercial closes with, “Bravery. It’s what defines us.” Hell yeah, bro. The word for just walking up to a woman and kissing her without her consent is apparently, “bravery.” Hell yeah, bro.

  20. Constance says:

    Don’t you feel like the game is rigged? I mean the Ravens get ahead by a huge margin and suddenly the lights go out and everyone cools down and the momentum shifts to make it a close game so the pay offs to the gamblers won’t be as high? They could probably tell they were losing viewers and their advertisers would be pissed so they held a blackout to gain attention and shift things around. It’s not a coincidence.
