Recommended Posts

So Scientology AND THEN exploitation of the all too precious Edward Scissorhands in a row? Good lord.

Remember.... Tracy is going through a divorce.

One year ago we had J-Lo and Shakira at halftime and the pandemic wasn’t yet.  Also Tom Brady was watching the Super Bowl from home, where he fucking belongs.

I swear, if one more fucking person says to me “well you just have to appreciate his greatness” I am going to continuously bitch about it on the interwebs.  No, actually I DON’T.

Interesting. I'm not even in Floriduh though, so if it's in select markets it's not just there.  I can see the Cult just targeting maybe NY and LA. 

It's on YouTube if you want to torture yourself and see it.

Thanks for absolutely nothing tonight, Chiefs. 

I'm going to throw up having to suffer through yet another Tom Brady championship (7), him getting another Super Bowl MVP, & him saying, I'm going to Disneyworld." And seeing Antonio Brown about getting a Super Bowl ring is downright stomach turning.

Wait, but were Bruce and Jeep telling me to go to church?  Cuz no.

That Jeep ad got me so befuddled I forgot what I came here to say.

Oh!  It was actually about the game.  I know the Chiefs lost an o-lineman to injury, and all that sadness happened with Andy’s terrible son, but could anyone have possibly predicted THIS was going to happen to Kansas City?

Someone wake me when Picard gets aired on CBS. That’s how I saw Discovery. I don’t think I’ve felt as close to a crew member than with Tilly.

Would Reg Barclay count? I could identify with his neuroses.

I have the day off tomorrow, but I had the thought of rescinding it (which would be fairly easy this year given the remote nature).  I will not as I need it for several things, not just the annual PTO day after the Super Bowl.  To be clear, I might actually pass out by 10 PM EST and get a lot of sleep for the first time from a Sunday to Monday in a long time (since Labor Day, I believe).  Probably could be up at 6-7, but 10-12 hours isn't far fetched.  There is always something good to come out of "something bad"

 

I take no pleasure in "predicting a blowout" but the reason why I even posted that was due to what the Buccaneers had coupled with what the Chiefs didn't have.  Injures are a valid reason, and it'll give Patrick his first loss in regulation.  However it is fair to say it's an excuse.  Brady's last several Super Bowl wins came against people that were hurt or not there.  However, he won four years ago without Gronk, and then Philadelphia managed to beat Tom and New England without their MVP candidate of a QB.

 

It sucks to not enjoy this for the most part, and I say for the most part because Kansas City still employs Hill.  There are some great people on that Tampa team, mainly the coaching staff.  That is so lost in the story of how great this Bucs team is.  TB12 definitely gets the credit and deserves it, but man, what an organization!

No. It's a Church that happens to be in the exact Geographic center of the Continental US.  The theme is that he's visiting it to reinforce the idea that "the middle" are the people who aren't radicalized. It's not saying that outright, but it's a metaphor. It's suggesting that the values of meeting in the middle becomes normalized again.

I normally take the day off after the Super Bowl, the COURT decided to schedule an 8:30 a.m. hearing in a case where I despise the opposing party.   This will not go well for him.

Yeah, "where all are welcome" got a big, fat eye roll from me.  Yeah, I'm sure a chapel in Kansas would be quite welcoming to my atheist ass.  And let someone walk in wearing a hijab and see how welcomed she is.  How about you pick an actual community space for your unity talk, Jeep?

Has a defending champion soiled the bed as badly as the Chiefs? I think you have to go back to Marcus Allen switching directions on Washington in XVIII.

It's been a long time, if ever.  You'll have to go back to the glory days, and that wasn't even that bad.  In the college game, it happened to Alabama (two years ago in the 2019 Title Game against Clemson)

I get that Tampa teams don’t win often . . . but the Bucs have waited eighteen years for this. I mean, there are the Browns, Vikings, etc.

I missed it too because I’m still muting the game while reading.

Any championship that comes out of the 2020 season has a big fat asterisk.  So there.

taunting isn’t cool, but I can’t get too worked up about it when someone’s taunting Tyreek Hill. He should be in jail, not on the football field.

It was quick and the cameras quickly shifted away from it because they don’t want to condone that behavior.

But if a Buc is an ass and flagrantly taunts another player....they give that a replay.

Seriously, though, Tough as Nails had a great first season. It’s not as heavy on the syrup as you’d think, and Phil Keoghan is a delight to watch.

An asterisk? They all had the same obstacles.  Much like my college team, Bama, they overcame those obstacles.

I get that she's a Queen, but a lame remake of a show nobody misses is dealing from the bottom of the deck, not the top. 

Now the game isn't just excruciating. It's boring on top of that.

The sad thing? There were probably bets on when/if the announcers would bring up the car crash.

Wow, that was a really awkward moment when Nance brought up Reid's car crash. It's sad but an odd thing to mention at the end of a disastrous game. Romo had enough sense not to comment.

Once again: this is the Colin Robinson of Superb Owls Super Bowls. If Nandor, Lazlo and/or Nadia kill you, it would be quick and entertaining. Colin just fucking wears you down and feasts on your energy.
