Super Bowl XLIV Liveblog

First of all, the only reason I watch the Super Bowl is for the Ads.

This year all the controversy is about future CFL washout Tim Tebow and the lies his mother told him about his birth.

Abortion is illegal in the Phillipines so it was never an option.

This year’s ads are not up on teh intertubz yet but here are some past years’-

  • 2009, cost $3.0 million per :30
  • 2008, cost $2.7 million per :30
  • 2007, cost $2.6 million per :30
  • 2006, cost $2.5 million per :30

Though I prefer the Bissell Kitty Halftime Show some of you may be interested in this year’s performers, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey- abused as a child and researching internet child porn for his autobiography and not at all guilty thank you very much.

A much better performance than you will see today-

Toronto 1982

Oh, and I understand there is also a game.

While you may not be rooting for the Who Dats on their rookie appearance after years of deserved mediocracy and frustration there are plenty of reasons to hate the Bolts.

Outside of their abuse of the home of Poe by the evil and manipulative Robert Irsay, there’s also their current coach, Jim Caldwell who tanked games and deserves to be barred for life and from the Hall of Fame just like Pete Rose does.

But let’s get down to brass tacks

  • The Saints have a running game and the Colts don’t.
  • The Saints are relatively healthy and the Colts Defense is injured.

These are both good reasons to take the Saints and the points.  Payton Manning is just not that much more Super than Drew Brees.

But perhaps you’re not interested in the game only the United States and Canada calls Football-

Well, there’s always the Hypnotoad.

It’s The Hypnotoad!

"Television is a vast wasteland"

AMC has Silverado which is one of the two best movies Lawrence Kasdan ever made (the other is The Big Chill) but I watched it last night with my SciFi friend so I’m not interested.

Here is some other special counter programming-

Comedy Bender’s Big Score Oxygen America’s Next Top Model Marathon
FX Ice Age 1 & 2 History Food Tech x 2, Decoding the Past
MSNBC To Catch a Predator Marathon (What Else?) MTV Teen Mom Marathon
SciFi Ghost Hunters Marathon TBS Failure to Launch, Titanic (Ugh, James Cameron)
TCM The Pink Panther (Peter Seller, David Niven), 8 1/2 (Fellini!) Discovery Destroyed in Seconds Marathon
TNT Law & Order Marathon Travel Man v. Food Live Marathon
TV Land Home Improvement Marathon USA Law & Order: SVU Marathon

The other channels will be carrying their usual crap.

So remember, all right thinking patriotic Americans are rooting for the humble, long suffering, victims of Katrina to utterly dominate and destroy the arrogant Bolts.

But you red state Indiana Evan Bayh fans are welcome to participate too.

  1. Puppy Bowl VI Liveblogging and Weekend News Digest are still open for business.

    Tonight at 4 am I will be Liveblogging the first race of The America’s Cup.

  2. The usual crap.

  3. Just thought I should mention that.

    The Kitty half time show cheered me up somewhat. My sinuses are bothering me today I am moving at half speed and feel kind of grouchy.

    I saw the Who during their FIRST ” we’re retiring tour” in Buffalo in 1982 or 1983? It was a strange day because it was all general admission so we got their at some ridiculous time in the morning at whatever the football stadium is called where the Bills played/play. So there was almost a riot  and then there was no music until the afternoon so everybody started drinking and doing drugs very early in the day. I think there is a good reason why they don’t do as many general admission giagantic rock concerts any more. The Clash was opening up for the Who and their respective fans did not get along so there were some minor fights in the stands. I was the only one of my friends who did not drink (oh don’t worry I did drugs that day and plenty of them) but I was still the LEAST wasted person there. One of my friends actually passed out before the Who came on. Our ride ditched us and I had to convince a total stranger to drive us home. Somebody pionted at them and said they were from the same city as me. The driver of the van was so blasted on acid I thought we would get arrested at the border. I still cannot believe they did not notice the condition of the van inhabitants. Not my best concert experience. Topped only by the time my friend insulted and threw up on people at a Robert Plant concert and they almost killed us.

  4. All these guys to free appearances in the off season for charity.

    How nice.

    Walter Payton Award winner Bryan Adams of the Kansas City Chiefs.

  5. since the Vikings shoulda been in it if they hadn’t turned the ball over 47 times in the NFC Championship game.

    But I’m suspendin’ my “root for the northernmost team” rule and cheerin’ for the Saints tonight.

    Peyton can console himself with his billions of endorsement dollars.  I just can’t respect someone who sells out for money.

  6. At least she’s doing America The Beautiful and not God Bless America.

  7. One thing if Tebow does end up in the CFL and it is a possibility…. I thought he benefited from a Floria system, they won’t be real excited in the CFL to listen to him blather about his faith. In Canuckistan that is considered a private matter.

  8. Return to the 23.

  9. Good coverage on the Punt.

    No Return.

  44. …. okay, everybody go potty !

  45. Nothing is funny! Bring back talking animals.

  46. but it’s hard to forgive Flo for the first one.

  47. The Saints have to come out running like the Giants in the Second Half.

    Kill the clock and grind them down.  We’ve already seen how winded the Bolts get.

  48. and they are updating it, tho its still a delay.
