Super Bowl Sunday: The End of Not Baseball

superdomeI can’t, I suppose, pretend that I care all that much about the outcome of this year’s big game. All things being equal, I’ll always root against Ray Lewis, but it’s also hard to want to see San Francisco win another title after having the Giants win the World Series twice in the last three years.

Still, it’s pretty clear that the Super Bowl has taken on a cultural relevance that’s more religious holiday than sporting event, so pretty much everyone will be watching it anyway. So there’s that, but it does also mark the official end of football season and the unofficial start of baseball season, especially with pitchers and catchers reporting in a matter of days..

Feel free to use this thread to comment; if you need me, I’ll be tending to the buffalo wings currently bubbling in the slow cooker.

What a fantastic Super Bowl! Destiny's Child in skimpy leather....oh, man almost as booty-licious as fergie is licious. Until they actually have nude lesbian pole dancers, I can see no way this was not the pinnacle of all super bowls. Thank you.

WHEN the Dodgers win the WS I am gonna be so ecstatic for the Dodgers. I won't even give the giants a second thought. Dodger fans that look to gloat at a rival instead of celebrating their teams success are no better than giants fans

Jesus. The vitriol being directed at niners fans by Dodgers fans is pretty sad.

Best commercials - Clydedales, Farmer, Audi Prom...

Worst commercials - Bar Rafaeli making out with the tech guy...PDAs are uncomfortable to begin with, so i have no idea why Godaddy would think that would work.  If it wasnt the super bowl i'd have changed the channel

 @EephusBlue I agree with half of that.  But the (distant) second-best thing to the Dodgers winning the World Series is the Giants losing.

 @EephusBlue i would rather the giants not win the world series, but i got over it after about 20 minutes. i just want my team to win.

DINGERS!

@EephusBlue It's that old Raiders mentality. It's a horrible mind virus. I'm glad I divorced myself from that team

 @plaza234 I loved the Farmer ad, but then I found out that it was completely ripped off from a Youtube video.  The video is literally the exact same thing except a little longer and no Dodge ad at the end.  Still a good ad even if it was a ripoff.

 @Lobo That Paul Harvey speech is a pretty famous speech though, and quite a few individuals have put pictures to it (i think one was from farm.com). But I do wonder if Dodge didnt pay them something for the idea.

 @white_guilt_paul  @EephusBlue  @ThtsaPaddlin They have a long, well documented history of cheating.  The 1951 New York Giants installed a telescope in their scoreboard & used it to steal signs during games.  That's how they went from being 13 1/2 games back in mid-August, to win 37 of 44 and force a playoff with the then Brooklyn Dodgers that culminated in Bobby Thompson hitting the, "Shot Heard Round the World."  And then they still got whupped by the Yankees in the WS.  That's the cheating you meant, right Eephus?

 @EephusBlue I see.  And there's a distinct difference between being a Giants fan since 1958 and a Giants fan since 2010.  Regardless, I hate them for being Giants fans.

 @ThtsaPaddlin Dont get me wrong. I hate em. I live amongst them and it sucks. But I dont have the time or energy to actively attack people because they are fans of that shit cheating franchise. Its the personal attacks that are tiresome

 @EephusBlue  @darknesssss on the other hand, if the niners had won, no doubt we'd be witnessing shit talk beyond belief. She's doing the only thing you really can do. Just be quiet for a while.

 @darknesssss She is probably also getting a lot of harassment from dick Dodger fans
