You Guys, the Superbowl Is Happening Right Now!

Posted by on Sun, Feb 5, 2012 at 3:43 PM

It's the Seattle Supersonics vs. the Philadelphia Flyers! Who's gonna win it? How many chicken wings have you eaten? On a scale 1-10, how drunk are you? Who's calling in sick tomorrow?

As Fnarf said recently in regard to another matter entirely: WILL YOU LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THE FUCK THAT WAS GIVEN.

O.k., I just saw Beckham naked and it totally made my Super Bowl experience.

Sorry, sweets. The sun is warm and the Pacific calls. Enjoy.

I haven't had anything to drink, but I'm watching a documentary about Townes Van Zandt, which kind of makes up for it. Is the game on?

Josh Powell just murdered his two boys and killed himself in a fiery explosion. Sort of puts a damper on my Super Bowl experience.

@12, good lord, that's a horrible story. So many ruined lives.

So I turned the thing on, and Madge was singing with a big hunk of her hair zipped into the front of her garment. What the hell was that?

Speaking of inebriates, those Budweiser "Prohibition is Over" ads...they don't seem to ring the right note. Keep thinking of people killed by drunk drivers (was it less under Prohibition? )

How can we watch the Super Bowl when the NV GOP is still counting returns from a very small turnout caucus which finished Saturday morning?

What a bunch of Mormons, err, I mean Morons

I think it was awfully nice of the parents to let their little girl around the troll @22. I mean, as long as they were there and things were supervised and all.

But, as a follow up, they probably should have a talk with her about "stranger danger", and how she shouldn't speak with him if she encounters him solo.

As for Madonna, I thought she was just fine. She's older than me, after all.

I've been spending the day watching RuPaul's Drag Race and A List Dallas....

A vastly more productive waste of time than football.

I watched Carol Burnett and the Facts of Life on my laptop while the guy texted me the score periodically. Apparently it went well.

You people need to hire real sports writers. Not every person on the left hates sports like the stereotype says.

Every year it's "Hey everyone, look how much of a fuck we don't give about the Superbowl!" tossed in with some mismatched sports terms and teams.

@22

Responding to you is a bad idea. But I think one answer is that you would pull out your gun and shoot him in the face if he came up to your door and asked for work. Or, perhaps more likely, you'd call the cops while hiding behind your couch.

That was the weirdest Super Bowl in years. The first score was a safety that shouldn't have happened. And the final score was a touchdown by a dude that didn't really want to score. Just weird.

Oh come now, Troll. Vulgarisms are one thing, but whatever perversion you are implying by having that poor child "trim your hedge" - let alone on a weekly basis - is simply beyond the pale.

@31: That was a very weird touchdown. It's as if a career's worth of muscle memory forced him unwilling into the endzone. I kept expecting a flag to be thrown: "Unintentional Scoring" or "Insufficient Celebration". The Pats dropped three completely catchable long passes in the last 2 minutes. not the stuff championships are made of.

The sun was nice and I was outside except for the hour that I spent at costco eating their sample snacks. That was as close to the supperbowl as I got. I even skipped the chicken wings samples.

To all those who did watch it I hope it didn't disappoint.

Troll, admitting that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery. Maybe this sick interlude with this highly theoretical little girl is just what you needed to wake you up.

@9, ha! Good one.

@25, I miss that....

@31, 33, that was the right call to let him score, and he should have fallen down short of the end zone. The replay really shows the conflict--he knew better but couldn't stop himself.

Football is 'good' because as smarter people than me have pointed out today, where else do you see fully unionized, and highly paid young (mainly african-american) men lionized to such a degree. Honestly, saying otherwise hints at jealousy. One may dislike sports, but keep it to themselves.

A better argument would be, "I'm aware of the game, but due to the high head injury risk and focus away from the higher artistic pursuits, I cannot support it and have chosen not to watch the contest." Hopefully, the alternate activity would be skiing, reading, or something beyond simply watching another tv show.

I'm not a huge football fan, so Giants vs Patriots was really not enough to get me to watch. If at least one of the teams is likeable, I'm more likely to want to engage.
