Super Bowl Blogging-1st Quarter
Why defer possession? Is that about gamesmanship or attempting to stave off nervousness?
Ah, momentum swings quickly. The Steelers fans got so excited at the muffed punt then 2 minutes later, the Pack is at midfield and feeling great.
I don’t really care that much about Aaron Rodgers’ family history and how hard it was to be a late first round draft pick. Such tales of misery should wait for the second half.
I can already imagine the squawking from Packers fans about the near miss catch by Nelson on the first drive, followed by the near miss at pinning the Steelers near the goal line. So close, yet so far away…
The best advertising minds in the country came up with this tripe? I am glad to see that Kenny G still looks like, uh, Kenny G…
How many different ways will announcers obliquely refer to Ben Roethlisberger’s ‘troubles’ or ‘year’ or ‘difficulties’? I hope folks are using this as a drinking game…
Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel in the same movie? Wow, what a great chance to see the baddest ambiguously ethnic action stars in the same movie!
A Rod and Cameron Diaz? Are they the least Latin Latino stars in the US? Hey, I’m just asking? (Even the Anthem Killer did a Spanish language album a few years ago.)
If Aaron Rodgers is wearing a different helmet because he’s been concussed a couple times, shouldn’t everyone wear that different (presumably better) helmet?
Great pass to Nelson. It would have been hard for Nelson to drop that one.
When will people start calling Aaron Rodgers ‘A-Rod’? Andy Roddick was never gonna get it but perhaps…
I love that play callers get lots of credit in the NFL. On the touchdown play, the receiver WAS NOT OPEN! The play worked because AROD (see, no hyphen) threw a PERFECT pass. Not because of any schematic genius.
Cowboys vs. Aliens followed by Roman Gods vs. Indians? WTF? (No, not ‘win the future’.)
So, has Big Ben been 'unredeemed' now?
15 yard celebration penalty. Nope, you’re not allowed to celebrate the biggest play of your life in the No Fun League.
Boz Scaggs? Who knew?
Wow, Eminem sells tea? Wait a sec, did I write that? Yep. Eminem sells tea. Isn’t that the 4th sign of the Apocalypse?
Emmanuel Sanders? What a fun name.
It’s still hard for me to hear the words “good protection” associated with Big Ben.
Within 10 seconds, Joe Buck says something about Big Ben like…
~ ’He looks like he can hardly move.
Now, he can move!’
C’mon Joe Buck, you’re better than that!
