$3 million for 30 seconds… The SUPER BOWL Thread

Super_Bowl_XLVII_logo

And this is the column I’ve been dreading. I mean really, what is there left to say about any of this. The “Har-bowl”? The “Bro-Bowl”? Attention centered on the coaches, who won’t be on the field, and not on the actual teams, who will. Well, except for the Ray Lewis controversy about the possible use of deer antlers (and isn’t that a visual none of us needed) and that player Chris from the 49ers who when asked about gays said he didn’t “go in for that sweet stuff.” (I think I can safely assume “Brokeback Mountain” isn’t in his Netflix queue). I’m not making a prediction, but I’m going with the Ravens, because (1) it’s Ray Lewis’ last game ever and (2) I’ve been eating a Subway Footlong BBQ Crow sandwich ever since that Kaepernick kid didn’t fold like a cheap card table in the playoffs. Of course you can’t go by me – see previous columns extolling the Texans and predicting Denver to go all the way.

HarbaughAs far as the Harbaugh brothers go, I don’t know much about them – I hated Jim when he coached Stanford and I have no reason to like him now, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s done wonders with the team. I’m waiting for the pregame show to devolve into a Smothers Brothers’ ripoff of “Mom always liked me best”. If you need to know which Harbaugh is which, it’s easy to remember – Johnny doesn’t have a continual facial expression of “I think I’ve just eaten bad shrimp.”

This column will publish an hour before the Superbowl, at 5:30 Eastern time. The first pre-game show will have started on CBS at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time, so by now you will have watched 6.5 hours of pregame for a game with one hour of playing time. And you will still have one hour to go. In that time, CBS will have done the following: (1) interviewed 4,675 NFL players, past and present, all of whom will make NO prediction as to the outcome; (2) interviewed Ray Lewis and everyone who ever knew the Harbaugh brothers, including the hot dog vendor on Poydras Street outside the Dome, who will give his views on defensive strategy, offensive strategy, and if yellow mustard is preferred by either brother on their weinee (you do with that phrase what you will).; (3) realize that by hour six, they have run out of things to talk about and will have started interviewing each other on the sidelines. You will also get the obligatory pre-game interview with Obama, at which time you will either go on another beer run or commence tiling your bathroom, depending on the items on your “to do” list.

By the time the coin gets tossed, chances are you will have forgotten what teams are playing.

Which, frankly, brings me to the real reason we watch the Super Bowl (unless you have a team involved, and even then it’s a toss up). The COMMERCIALS.

We have had greats in the past – the jammin’ frogs and anything involving the Budweiser Clydesdales (the football game is still my No. 1, although that one with colt thinking he’s really pulled the coach out of the bar is a close second). You know that no one will be looking a a reply of a great touchdown run on Monday – they’ll be hitting You Tube for a repeat of the commercials. At $3 million for half a minute, they are an incredible investment. And for a long time, they were the BEST part of the game. But lately, they’ve been lacking, so here’s some suggestions:

!. Can we get rid of the Go Daddy commercials with or without Danicka Patrick? Please? I find it hard to believe WOMEN are rushing to the computer to see what Dani’s doing next (of course, San Francisco is playing, but still….)

2. Budweiser – please. Stick to the Clydesdales. Those prohibition ads from last year? Seriously? I was praying for a repeat of “the Streaker.” You can’t go wrong with the ponies.

3. Chrysler didn’t SAVE Detroit. Calvin Johnson did. Ominious 300’s driving down Woodward Avenue and not being threatened with hijacking and a drive-by aren’t foolling anybody.

4. I do not watch the Super Bowl for tips on combatting global warming. If a Polar Bear shows up in a guy’s driveway, I want to see some serious man versus beast action. And since the man is a wimp who drives a car that doesn’t make any noise, I hope at least he’s tasty.

Enjoy the game, folks. Pop the cold ones and chow down on the wings. And I’ll see you all back here in the first week in September where you can look forward to more erroneous game outcome predictions and the occasional rant about Roger Goodell.

    As long as it doesn’t become a Super BLOW where one team is ahead of the other by a minimum of 3 TD’s…and stays there…it’ll be OK to watch.
    Oh yeah, Go 49ers! Beat the Ray Lewises!

    Temporary drive-by post since I have to make a beer and ribeye/fixins’ run.

    If I had Gates-like money I would buy 30 minutes worth and expose The Chair. But then again they probably wouldn’t allow it, CBS being the most Lefty of the big 3 networks.

    the NFL is full of shit.

    even this morning watching “CBS sunday morning” with that old far Bob Schieffer and he had Nance, Phil Simms and Shannon sharpe on and they were discussing how the NFL broadcasts no longer showcase violent hits.

    then the next program that followed this broadcast was the “road to the superbowl” and it showcased the best plays of the year and the first 30 or so were violent hits!

    Unnecessary violent hits, like those to the head or the knees. They do still encourage hard hitting football and the Pro Bowl is a prime example of how this has not changed. The Commish warned the players to play hard like they do in the regular season or the PB would be scrapped.

    Even assuming that shotgun picture want so sketchy as far as what is depicting, I really don’t understand how Jugears thinks this helps his credibility with gun owners and second amendment supporters. So Jugears is shooting a gun and expressing interest in skeet shooting as legitimate sport. So what? The aristocracy in all of those European countries that kept the peasants disarmed also enjoyed hunting and sporting at arms. They were the king’s lands in order to keep the peasants out such that the game was available exclusively for the aristocracy and those favored by the king. All Jugears is doing is showing that some people in the US will always be able to enjoy the sports forbidden to the peasants. So what? We knew that already

    If not for the football being played this broadcast would be unbearable. I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but CBS has decided on a transitional graphic with CBS prominently shown after all the action. Watch for it. There are 2. One with the Lombardi trophy with CBS at the bottom and the other a NFL logo with CBS on the bottom. So far each one has appeared at least a dozen times in the little time the game has been on.

    CBS, we know what channel we are watching. Sheeze.

    Serves them right. They forced most of the other brick and mortar electronics stores out of business by undercutting them. Now the same thing is happening to them.

    KRUGMAN: Not true.

    FIORINA: Yes. So you’re condemning people…

    KRUGMAN: No, there are plenty of gun-owners who are fine. But the lobbying groups, the NRA is now revealed as an insane organization, and that matters quite a lot.

    On behalf of our now 4.3 million members, screw you.

    In Arizona, if you carry an AZ CCW Permit, that is your background check. Fill out the 4473, pay the gunstore, and you are on your way. The other good reason to have a permit, even though you no longer need one, is reciprocity and ability to carry concealed in State Parks.

    Another bogus statistic they keep using is the claim that “40% of gun sales are done without a background check.” I’ll bet almost nobody on the anti-gun side even knows the origin of that one.

    It comes from a study that was conducted between 1991-93 (before the Brady bill, BTW). They studied a whopping 251 gun transfers (not all of them sales) and found that 36% were done between private parties. Most of those were made within families.

    Anyone with half a brain should see the rather obvious problem with a claim that some percentage of gun sales are made without background checks, anyway. Since we’re talking about sale where there’s no official record, how do they know how many there were?

    @ lobo91:

    At some point people like Kelly use up any of the respect due them based upon their service to our country and merely become just more lying, opportunistic political hacks. Kelly crossed that line several months ago; he no longer even deserves a thank you for his service, he just used it to advance his political career.

    And Chris Wallace clearly can’t be trusted on this issue.

    He’s arguing with Lapierre about whether or not the Dems want a universal gun registration.

    If you don’t have registration, how do you enforce a “universal background check”?

    Lewis’ attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb, negotiated a plea agreement with Howard, where the murder charges against Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting,[50] and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.[15] Lewis admitted he gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings. Superior Court Judge Alice D. Bonner sentenced Lewis to 12 months’ probation, the maximum sentence for a first-time offender,[51] and he was fined $250,000 by the NFL, which was believed to be the highest fine levied against an NFL player for an infraction not involving substance abuse.[52] Under the terms of the sentence, Lewis could not use drugs or alcohol during the duration of the probation.
    Oakley and Sweeting were acquitted of the charges in June 2000.[53][54] No other suspects have ever been arrested for the crime.

    We were thinking that the power outage might not have been accidental, on account of it being so well timed.

    Either that, or the electric company didn’t hire enough Serbs; many of them have proven to be experts in keeping electric power facilities functioning during adverse circumstances including outside attacks.

    When I was a kid, singers of both sexes performed fully clad, and they sang well enough that you could actually recognize and remember the melody.

    Those were the days.

    If the vocalists of today had any talent as musicians, they wouldn’t need to disrobe before going on stage.

    Bipartisan Senate Immigration Plan Gives Napolitano Final Say On If Border Secure Enough To Grant Amnesty To 11 Million Illegal Immigrants…

    Under a bipartisan Senate framework, Democrats say, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano would have final say over whether the border is secure enough to put 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship.

    If Napolitano does not provide the green light for putting illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship, the responsibility for judging whether the metrics for border security have been met will be given to her successor.
