We're going to the Super Bowl!!!

"We're going to the Super Bowl!!!"

Over and over, inside and outside the stadium, that was the catch phrase.

I'm still not sure I believe what happened. We were dead. Really, completely dead.


Safe to say, the best game I've ever seen in person, and for certain, one of the best Conference Championship games ever.

And now, the running dialogue from my head. I'm rewatching the game, and remembering what was going on in the stadium. I have no clue what the times were, so deal. I'm entering Rev territory and beyond.

First Quarter

I know Dungy/Peyton and Co. love to have the ball to start the game, but I think we do much better when we get the ball to start the 2nd half.

The crowd was rocking at the start. I hope they designed the new stadium with good acoutics. 'Cause the dome just reveberates the sound.

Brady tried to do Manning's little jump pass. He can't, because he sucks.

I hate Terrence Wilkins. A lot. He scares me so much. He has a horrible ball placement while running, very easy to strip.

Richard Seymour is a little whiner. Calls of "pussy" rained down. Get up on your feet and stop complaining.

Around this time, I note a moron in a Tedy Bruschi jersey 3 rows in front of me. As a homage to Zeke, I yelled "Bruschi is the devil" 3 or 4 times. This was met with a blank stare.

Pats drive the whole field...screw up the handoff on the 4, Colts jump on top of it, and let the ball squirt into the end zone. This is when I began to suspect it was going to be a really crappy day. We get a huge break, then don't do anything with it.

I note, after a 12-yard gain to Reggie Wayne, "wow, the Colts almost never do WR screens." Guess what I hear when I listen to the game coverage? Jim Nantz proclaiming the Colts love to run WR screens. I know we haven't used more than 5 this season. Moron announcers.

Officials did a crappy job of spotting balls all day, and for both teams.

Second Quarter

It's 4th and 6th and Bob Sanders is right at the line. He can only be blitzing. Why is he blitzing? Why are we blitzing? What are we doing? Why do we want them to get a first down? Great...a 27-yard gain. Awesome play call.

Terrence Wilkins is trying to lose this game for us. "DON'T FUMBLE THE BALL!!!"

Single worst moment of the game: I see Manning looking towards the right, everyone's tightly covered. I see that he's gonna try to squeeze it into Marvin. And right as the ball is thrown I see that it's going to be a pick 6. I thought it was over. I gave us less than a 10% chance to come back.

Patriots driving again. But then something amazing happens, a break goes the Colts' way. Offensive pass interference. Illegal motion. Sack. Go from driving in field goal range all the way back to midfield. The turning point of the game. The Pats scored after this, but they never looked near as good.

I was god damn sure that Wayne was pushed. After watching the tape, he admittingly tripped over his own feet. Shockingly, the refs got it right.

Third Quarter

Earlier in the year, I was definitely not a Dominic Rhodes fan. He has been spectacular the past two games. Really proved me wrong.

Marvin Harrison drags his feet better than anyone in the NFL.

Huge 3 and out...Heath Evans is dumb for trying to break tackles.

The ref said "61 is an eligible reciever". Immediately knew he was getting the ball. Secures the ball, huge TD.

The throw and catch on the 2pt conversion was abosolutely amazing. I was looking right down on it. The ball hung up forrrrrreverrrr. It looked way too high for Marvin and way too low for Wayne. Then Harrison makes the perfect adjustment on the ball, twists his body, and ties the game.

A horrible effort on the kick return coverage. It suprised me that fans even kept making noise for the next play.

I could see Reche Caldwell's eyes from the other side of the field and in the upper deck.

Gaffney's heels were on the line when he jumped. That is what happened. Ref whores. At this point, I was fearing that this was the 1996 game all over again.

Charlie Johnson, you are an Offensive Lineman, you don't pick the ball up and try to run with it.

Fourth Quarter

It was only right that we got the same stupid lucky bounce that the Pats did. Fumble on the goal line and the O-lineman picks it up and scores.

I nearly had a heart attack when I saw Bob Sanders on the ground.

Please don't fumble the ball Wilkins.

Had I known in the stands that Manning's hand was in jeporady, I would have been freaking out even more.

Reche Caldwell is absolutely positively wide open. No one is covering him. The entire stadium is yelling at the defense to no avail. And he gives us the gift of the dropsies. Thank you Lord.

Thank you thank you thank you Dallas Clark. B-e-a-utiful.

It looked at this point that we were just going for the tie. OT scared me to no end. Money Vinatieri.

Huge deal, the Pats after a first down, throw 2 out of 3 downs. Very little time comes off. Peyton and Co. still have a chance.

3 and out for the Colts. It has to be over now. Only 3 and a half left.

Dungy ran out halfway to the hash yelling at the official to count the people in the huddle. Awesome job getting the penalty. Huge.

Bob Sanders is a man. A very manly man.

Wilkins' best move of the night: don't touch the ball at all.

Bryan Fletcher, I love you. Does Ben Utecht make that catch if he's not injured? I'm not really sure. Fletcher is faster, which got him the seperation.

My heart skipped about 12 beats. The ball popped up in the air, and Wayne recovered it. Simply magaical how he got it back. It was just sitting in the air, ready to be batted away from his grasp. I thought the season was over. (horrible roughing the passer call).

Joseph Addai, I love you. Jeff Saturday created the hugest hole ever. Nearly untouched for the winning score. The second loudest noise I have ever heard.

That 2 point conversion is looking huge right now. FG can't tie.

32 second half points. Holy crap.

We finally made a stop on a kick return. Thank you Jesus.

For all the game winning drives Brady has made, he doesn't seem to be a very good clock manager. 14 wasted seconds after a dinky pass.

INTERCEPTED INTERCEPTED INTERCEPTED MARLIN JACKSON YESSSSSSS!!! The loudest noise I have ever heard. Utter pandimonium.

To win is great, but to win like that...there really are no words.

What a spectacular game.

great job freak, happy for you and peyton

too see this game in person must have been beyond out of control
and for it to be one of the better games in history is pretty cool too

colts - 7

gotta take them, right?!??

ToddPacker said...

Congrats to the bears, colts and jfreak...i bet it was a great game to see live.

El Padrino said...

i have a nasty hangover

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

jfreak, how was your heart. Mine nearly exploded a few times watching it on TV, and I don't follow either team all that closely. Of course, that could have been the 2 tons of beef jerky I ate on Sunday.

But anyways, should be a good Superbowl.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

More Biel Bikini Pictures


God Bless The Paparazzi!!!

ToddPacker said...

friday LOV really escalated. the 'roided up LOV was almost too much to handle and I'm paying the price for it today (extra load of tps)...plus the championship weekend makes all of the all the non-sports-office-people into sports radio hosts...all of a sudden everyone is taking about the bears D, the mannings, the color of the coaches in the super bowl and breaking down things like when to go for a 2 point conversion...the one bad the about the super bowl is that it brings out all of the amateurs much like new years eve and drinking

ToddPacker said...

mutumbo'ed on the biel's

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

oh, and for the record. I refuse to go anywhere near ESPN.com or ESPN television for the next two weeks. I'll tune back in Saturday after next.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

"the one bad the about the super bowl is that it brings out all of the amateurs much like new years eve and drinking"


well said

whocares said...

Mutomboed on the Biel pics. Not a good way to start the week.

Must work today.

El Padrino said...

Tits, silver dollar panckaes anyone?

El Padrino said...

wow biel

wow
fucking wow

The Rev said...

Cyber standing O to you, Freak. You did me proud.

I never have had love for the Colts or for Peyton. It's my years of watching the Pats in Boston talking there. But he earned my respect yesterday. That was a classic.

I never thought I'd see Brady choke in a big moment. But he has now. No denying that.

Isiah Thomas said...

I loved the Bruschi is the Devil comment. Only if a drink had been thrown at the guy could it have been topped.

Well done freak.

The Rev said...

The New Years Eve comment... truer words have never been spoken.

There's a reason we in the DJ business call it Amateur Night.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

LOV updated with Biel pix

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

that's it for me today as well.

Must...focus...on...work!!!

The Rev said...

Freak...

Have fun dropping your money on the Conference Champions gear. I think I spent over $200 bucks after the Eagles went two years ago.

My tip... a lot of that stuff will be on clearance in a couple of months and much cheaper. Buy the locker room hat right away because they go quicker. And the AFC Championship hats tend to be harder to get later because they will stop producing them if the team wins the Super Bowl. I know this from Pats gear experience. If the Colts lose the big game, you will have AFC Champs hats out the ying yang for months. I know that from my experience with the Birds.

Wait on the t-shirts cause they will overproduce those and there will be plenty left in the spring that you can snag for 5-10 bucks. And you don't want to overspend now just in case there's Super Bowl merchandise to buy in the future.

But get that hat right away cause it looked pretty sweet.

And if you're really daring, the jerseys should be rolling out within a week with the Super Bowl logo on them. But expect to pay $75 bucks for those.

That's the Rev's tip of the day just for you, Freak.

Isiah Thomas said...

the Pats did choke - up 18? Damn. Haven't heard one talking head say this.

Granted Peyton and Co took the game and won.

But the invincible, incredible Pats choked.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev's three scroll tip could have been condensed into :

"wait for the blue light special"

The Rev said...

Colts championship gear

I like the stuff this year. They did it nice.

Isiah Thomas said...

SG will blame this loss on the front office. He'll complain about the WR's, etc. I doubt he'll give longneck some credit.

Isiah Thomas said...

the Reggie Wayne pop up to himself was the defining moment of the game. In seasons past the Pats would have jumped all over that and it would have been the ball game. Bruschi's must have forgotten to renew his pact with Lucifer.

The Rev said...

But if it were condensed, it really wouldn't be me would it?

I'm just trying to help the young man out. It's knowledge I wish was passed to me all those times I went out and bought a ton of gear.

I've got Pats locker room championship hats out the ying yang, and I've got Eagles NFC Champs gear overloaded.

Isiah Thomas said...

I was mildly shocked that Bellichick even recognized Dungy's existense after the game. But he pulled the "take-r easy buddy" routine with Manning.

Bellichick needs have a broom stick shoved up his ass.

The Rev said...

The Wayne pop-up...

That was a holy shit moment for sure.

Two years ago, Bruschi gets that ball. No question.

Isiah Thomas said...

you're right it would be true rev advice. You just passed along the bible of team championship gear. LOV gives you that instead of the bible of sex or whatever it was in American pie.

ToddPacker said...

biggest choke of the game was when the pats were up 21-3 in the 2nd and started a drive with great field position (colts 45 i think) and couldn't even get a FG...i think if the the pats score a TD on that drive and go up 28-3 the colts would have been dead

Isiah Thomas said...

last Friday....

Bruschi's Wife :"hey hon, the Devil sent this renewal notice, you want me to take care of it"

Bruschi : "Nah I'll get to it on Monday.....hey baby bring me another bottle of babies blood will ya, I'm fresh out"

dumbass.

thejugwhite said...

Rev...do you know of a site where I can order customized replica jersey's?

GO BEARS!

Isiah Thomas said...

after that pick 6 I was thinking what a waste of money freak had shelled out. Glad it turned out to be a great W for his squad.

Isiah Thomas said...

I was a surprised nearly everyone on Countdown picked the Saints - these are "experts"?

thejugwhite said...

All the experts om ESPN.com picked the Saints...5 out of 8 picked them on CNNSI.com. I'm sure the same will be true for the Super Bowl too.

El Padrino said...

the pick six was brutal
asante samuel must have slept in ty law's bed

The Rev said...

For Jug

Customized Super Bowl jerseys... you can't go wrong there.

Isiah Thomas said...

how does Caldwell drop those passes? Maybe he sees like 8 balls coming at him bc his eyes bug out and it fucks him up?

El Padrino said...

zeke, i said the same thing on my blog

also all the gamblers took the saints which is why i picked the bears....the bookies never lose

El Padrino said...

the one where no one took him was the worst

El Padrino said...

i'd like to thank god for the snow

Isiah Thomas said...

21-3 and I'm thinking well so much for that bet.

I'm not sure if that's a good or bad omen for my pending Vegas trip this week. Using up the luck too early?

El Padrino said...

every nfc championship game should come complete with snow

Isiah Thomas said...

did EP call the Colts/Bears SB too. That's worth noting.

Isiah Thomas said...

*didn't

El Padrino said...

i had a colts/bears reverse

(in Borat voice) NIIICEEE!

Isiah Thomas said...

I heard that it snowed in downtown phx last night. High level wtf.

El Padrino said...

i did call it
see my blog

gimme love

Isiah Thomas said...

reverse - heard about it, never bet it, explanation?

El Padrino said...

4 to 1 odds, got to win both bets though to win

$25 reverse brings back $100

if you win one bet but lose the other you lose just what you put up
but if you lose both bets you lose double that

so example above
win both = $100
win one of them = lose $25 (+vig)
lose both bets = lose $50 (+vig)

El Padrino said...

so i had a $100 reverse
i won $400

thejugwhite said...

You're a good man Rev! Thanks

Isiah Thomas said...

and I guess per Tony Dungy God is a colts fan.

Isiah Thomas said...

all I heard coming in on the radio was the recap of the Bears game. Maybe they'd already done the Pats recap but there was major bobbing on the Bears. There are mad Chicago-ins, Chicano-uns out here apparently.

Isiah Thomas said...

winning 4 huney is fucking great EP.

thejugwhite said...

Zeke...give it a day or so and all you're hear is "Which Rex will show up?" and Can this Bears defense contain Peyton Manning?".

El Padrino said...

cant wait for super bowl prop bets
my favorite time of the gambling season (that and NCAA tourney and bowl season)

El Padrino said...

oh the hype machine is rolling

black coaches
no manning ever won a super bowl
bears d vs peyton
both storied franshises havent won in a long time
south beach!!!!!!!!!

El Padrino said...

and whoever thought bruce nolan was father hate was retarded
the name would have been much more clever than that

shame on you

El Padrino said...

Z in the house

Isiah Thomas said...

The guys on the radio here pretty much handed the bears the trophy already.

thejugwhite said...

elp...that's why it was so clever...:)

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd like to think you're right EP about Bruce Nolan/FH. Crap detector went off a little.

I hope you're right though, FH becoming Bruce Nolan would be disturbing.

El Padrino said...

really zeke?
cuz vegas thinks otherwise

colts -7

thejugwhite said...

I think it was at -7 no matter which team won the AFC last night.

El Padrino said...

jug no it wasnt
that's not his style
and stop with those smiley things
they are gay

i know your pumped about the bears so i'll let you slide
congrat on that by the way
you and jfreak should have a grudge match this sunday to see who will win fed 4th's game
xbox 360 online maybe?

El Padrino said...

erroneous, pats would have been favored by 4 or 5
no doubt

i'm a lineologist, i know

Martin VanNostrand said...

Congrats Freak and I say that being the resident Pats fan. When Indy got the ball back with 2:33 left I knew it was over. There was too much time and the score was too close. Statistically the Colts couldn't lose many more times in the playoffs and espically to the Pats. When the wheel hits black 3 times in a row you start betting red cause it's going to land there soon.

Brady started to get my hopes up in working the 1 minute drill. I guess sooner or later he had to throw an interception to lock up a playoff loss though. Stastics you know. This is HUGE for Colts fans everywhere. If you're going to beat your "rival" they couldn't have asked for a better scenario.

For Peyton's sake againt the critics I hope he has a good super bowl. However I don't think I can root against a man named Lovie unless he's playing against my team.

Isiah Thomas said...

North Korea might be onto something here.

I've always maintained that there shouldn't be any hunger in the world. With the abundance of pigeons, other small birds, goldfish, etc - and now rabbits, the solution to world hunger has been staring at us from our pet's cages for generations.

El Padrino said...

eat pets?

Brillant!

Isiah Thomas said...

Colts -7 I'll be interested to see if/how much the line moves and how fast it moves, if it does.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm saying if I was starving with little hopes of finding food, I'm cracking my pet bunny over the head and calling some friends over for a bbq.

Isiah Thomas said...

bunny bbq, byob. b in byob meaning beer or bunny.

thejugwhite said...

I'm anxious to see Devin Hester return some kicks and punts against the Colts special teams.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Hester could have 500 yards against the Colts

Isiah Thomas said...

we need a tjw update from his 2 nights of partying.

thejugwhite said...

Just read Penthouse forum...

El Padrino said...

good article from wojo on wwl

El Padrino said...

Boxing news, maywheather sr. wanting 2mm to train de la hoys vs maywheather jr.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Did you guys read about the dream Meiz had on the Friday/weekend thread? That's high comedy.

Isiah Thomas said...

EP I read that Mayweather article. I got the feeling that once Oscar ponies up the two mil Mayweather Sr's great secret to beating his kid will be: "punch him".

Isiah Thomas said...

great call on Meiz's dream, funny and disturbing at the same time.

The Rev said...

Interesting article on the Oscar fight.

May 5th... same night as my wedding. I had no idea.

ToddPacker said...

the meiz dream was pretty funny

The Rev said...

Apparently the job of being Paul's wife pays $2000 an hour in the end.

ToddPacker said...

lunch meeting today...pizza is on the menu...it's funny when people only eat a couple of slices so they don't look like a hog. when really most could eat a half pie minimum....today i'm going in kobeashi(sp?)style...no pizza is leaving the room

El Padrino said...

the dream was funny

The Rev said...

This is a good woman

El Padrino said...

tp your a bear and that pizza...
that pizza is a little bunny rabbit

your so money

El Padrino said...

rev i linked that on my bliz-og today

The Rev said...

"it's funny when people only eat a couple of slices so they don't look like a hog. when really most could eat a half pie minimum"

Not me...

I show those office meetings who's boss. I'm eating half a pie minimum. Their timidness works out to my benefit.

Then again... I'm sure that info about me does not surprise anyone.

Isiah Thomas said...

Parcells.....OUT.

El Padrino said...

figured that

i hope he stays out this time

ebntx said...

Isiah Thomas said...
Parcells.....OUT.

whaaaat!? come back! we can get rid of to.

Isiah Thomas said...

I hope he wears better fitting shirts for his next broadcasters gig. Those mits were out of control on the sideline. Rock a sports bra if you have to Bill.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Meiz's dreams are weekly entertainment for my friends. They love 'em.

ebntx said...

my memory is too bad to recall meiz's dreams and im too lazy to look up them up. remind me.

thejugwhite said...

SG article is up...

Isiah Thomas said...

new SG is up, haven't read it yet.

tem - hook us when you get the chance.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

SG Article -

"Those are three words you never expect to say as a Patriots fan. Not during the Belichick-Brady Era, anyway. But..."

I quit reading after that "But" everytime he's says the Belichick-Brady Era, It makes me want to drown a box of kittens

El Padrino said...

meiz - they got a nice bball team going on up there in madison

Isiah Thomas said...

dikembe meiztombo said...
So I had a dream last night. The Sports Gal is hot. I was at this big ass concert with some of my family and Simmons and the Sports Gal. The parking lot was an airfield. Me & SH were chums from back in the dizay. Good lookin gal but, not like high-fashion, ritzy, stuck-up type. Chris Moneymaker was there too. he was dressed up in a shitty superhero outfit consisting of a t-shirt, a jockstrap, and a shitty mask over his eyes. He kept harassing me and Sports Gal. It was fucking annoying. We were like- "dude, get your sloppy fat ass out of our faces. Fuck the WSOP." He didn't leave us alone the whole concert. Then the concert ends and we all go back out to the airfield/parking lot for more tailgating and booze. A few airplanes take off and land, and some jackass in a little fiberglass stunt-type plane starts jacking around and ends up crashing nose first right in front of us. My mom called 911 first and just hung up. So, I call 911 and keep getting put on hold and/or transferred constantly. In the end, me, SG, and SH walk towards the crashed plane with the dead dude in it to try and rescue him. Well, the plane finally blows up as we are heading over to it. No one is hurt but me and SH end up bitching out the "rescue squad" that never showed up.

The lesson: Sports Gal is hot and is a good friend of mine. Eat it haters.

thejugwhite said...

SG is not a bad read today...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

no shit, hey.

ebntx said...

thanks zeke.

does the saga continue meiz?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Kinda Funny

thejugwhite said...

Anyone read SP today? Nice little mention in there about Drew Brees picking up dog shit in the park.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The saga always continues...

Isiah Thomas said...

I can't get SP to load on my ie. I think our internet caught aids over the weekend, its running slow.

thejugwhite said...

SP covered the Bears game yesterday...how can he not get his boss to send him to Indy? Doesn't he have any pull over there?

thejugwhite said...

Bears defensive lineman Tank Johnson won't have to worry about a judge slowing his rush to Miami. Johnson, who is required to stay in his home when he's not at work, will be allowed to travel out of state for the Super Bowl. Lake County Associate Circuit Judge Theodore Potkonjak ruled this month Johnson is cleared for takeoff. His next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 16.

i'm full of pizza...going to need a nap this pm...a couple of slices escaped the room but they had crappy toppings so i let them go

temwr said...

What? I'm not sure what is going on today. My head is not where it needs to be.

temwr said...

Those Biel pics made my day though.

Then ruined it again as she is unattainable for me.

The Rev said...

SG was a good read today.

Reminds me of a famous musician who got happy for a while, and put out some crappy albums while he was a happy guy.

But suddenly, he writes a song while in pain over a loss, and that song gets him a Grammy.

Some artists are better writers when they go to a place of pain. I think Simmons is one of those artists.

temwr said...

SG quick recap for folks who hate SG.

Pats had game, lost it. Manning was due, let's his dad throw out the reasons the Pats lost so he doesn't look too bad.

I'd say a worthless article. Not even sure it is diary worthy.

temwr said...

I disagree with all who think the SG article was good.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Did Rev. just call SG an artists?

The Rev said...

I think SG had his downfall because Boston became the City of Champions.

Even when he complains about the Celtics being crappy, it seems hollow because he still had all those titles from the other teams to fall back on.

But watching Peyton finally get one over on your team in the playoffs makes you remember that old pain for a little while. And it provided some fastballs for him today.

I'm sure it will go back to normal soon for him. He'll have to write another article about Doc Rivers soon as a fallback.

ToddPacker said...

i just read the sg article and i have to agree with tem... it's a big pile of crap... this guy gets worse with every word he types...hang it up bill

JFreak said...

"jfreak, how was your heart. Mine nearly exploded a few times watching it on TV, and I don't follow either team all that closely."

I'm pretty sure I almost died.

And Rev, thanks for the tip on gear. I might just have to deal not getting much of anything. Those tickets set me back quite a bit. And a 30 dollar hat is whorish. But I am such a hat guy...and that's a nice hat.

El Padrino said...

jim mora jr, asst head coach/secondary coach for seattle seahawks

jus sayin

The Rev said...

I think I did, Steve.

OK, I regret that choice of words in hindsight. But it was intended to make a point.

The Rev said...

Tem and TP hating on SG is predictable.

I'm more curious to know what the unbaised ones think of his article today.

i think he's father pointing out those things are ridiculous

tom jackson who in my mind is the best, absolute best football analyst, host/guy whatever you want to call him said it best(about the pats):

"Boom, you can't win them all"

The Rev said...

30 dollar hats are whorish.

You might be able to get a better deal at a local sports store in your area. But the hats are usually the most quality of the gear.

Isiah Thomas said...

I thought SG was pretty lame today as well.

El Padrino said...

zeke just went Jaws on us and broke down game film from Friday

awesome!

ToddPacker said...

rev the sports guy's downfall is that he writes the same stuff every time over and over again...the first couple of karate kid-type-jokes were kind of funny, but when you go to that well all the time your just not that good...he belongs in some crappy newspaper in boston crying about boston sports...

The Rev said...

That's unbelievable numbers.

I thought I had more comments than that. I must have been slacking.

JFreak said...

Another Bengals player arrested

Seriously, at some point, it stops being funny.

El Padrino said...

rev i agree on what you said about him being better when his teams suck ass but i thought today's article was sub standard

could have been better, i was expecting more hatred and not one mention of dungy's coaching job the past three weeks and comapring to red sox is ridiculous as is putting his father take on it, only because it comes off as whining

The Rev said...

"the sports guy's downfall is that he writes the same stuff every time over and over again"

Agreed TP. I think he goes to the well once too often too.

That's why I thought today's article was better. He didn't do that this time.

Some of his observations on Manning were spot on. Comparing how he was acting in the final minute where he could barely watch to someone waiting on a result from a blood test in a hospital was a good line.

ToddPacker said...

you can't stop zeke...you can only hope to contain him

I don't know, I still like the SG articles, but you definitely have to know what to expect. Some semi-interesting commentary from a totally biased point of view and lots of almost-trying-to-hard pop culture references. Still entertaining enough for me to read each time (unless it's an all NBA column) considering the price.

And even though Friday I got beat out in # of comments by newbie/possible FH-alias Bruce Nolan, I'm just glad I beat that "Comment Deleted" guy.

Isiah Thomas said...

ah - those hours are Mountain Standard time.

*we hit our stride at 1PM. Between 1 and 3 PM we had 502 comments.

temwr said...

Also he ragged on Sauerbraun for his punt into the end zone. 100% chance the coach told him to boot it deep and if it went into the end zone so be it.

Anyway, I got no love for the SG article today. It doesn't even come close to two fridays ago. That was his wheelhouse.

Anyway, zeke did go hollinger on that shit.

nice beth...good SG summary

Isiah Thomas said...

I like SG the best when he does diaries. Wait that's tem. I like tem the best.

I hope SG goes to the NBA ASG. He does well on road trips.

The Rev said...

ElP...

No reason for more hatred and Dungy's coaching job the past three weeks really doesn't matter much at this point. When you win and go to the Super Bowl, those things just don't stick.

Maybe the article wasn't uproariously funny. But I found myself more interested in it than some past articles. But maybe that's just me.

ToddPacker said...

zeke can you break down the number of comment per subject...the sad part about it is i think food network hosts my lead the 'roided up LOV Friday

ToddPacker said...

*might (not my)

JFreak said...

I enjoyed reading that.

It might be because he finally had to eat his words.

Isiah Thomas said...

TP - doing that now, that one will take a little longer.

Isiah Thomas said...

did anyone catch SG as a commentator? I think he was doing 2 games last week.

ToddPacker said...

take you time.....zeke breaking down of the 1000+ comments day might be LOV member of the month status

ToddPacker said...

what 2 games?

ebntx said...

"take you time.....zeke breaking down of the 1000+ comments day might be LOV member of the month status"

i think zeke would be deserving of lov member of the 1st quarter for that feat.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I didn't catch his broadcasting debut but I bet he gave a shout out to House, J-Bug, and Hench.

thejugwhite said...

I had one less comment than the Comment Deleted guy...sweet!

Tyler said...

I also thought that SG article was crap. Even when he's giving the Colts props for their amazing comeback he had to make it about Boston and compare it to the Red Sox. What? And I love how he opens with "This isn't sour grapes" and then there's the whole paragraph about the Troy Brown offensive pass interference and how New Orleans used the same pick play and Bush scored on it; then it was blah, blah, blah, bogus roughing-the-passer call, blah, blah, blah, whine, whine, whine.

The Rev said...

The rap sheet on the Bengals (from the WWL)

- Johnathan Joseph CB Possession of marijuana
- Deltha O'Neal CB Driving while intoxicated
- Reggie McNeal WR Resisting arrest
- Matthias Askew DT Resisting arrest
- Eric Steinbach G Boating under the influence
- Chris Henry WR x-Total of five
- Frostee Rucker DE Spousal battery
- A.J. Nicholson LB Burglary, grand theft
- Odell Thurman LB Driving while intoxicated
x-unlawful transaction with a minor (three counts), speeding, operating a vehicle under the influence, felony possession of a concealed firearm, possession of marijuana.

I love the fact that Chris Henry needed an asterisk to explain his record.

The Rev said...

Comparing the Colts to the Red Sox... at least the comparison was somewhat valid. The Colts needed a huge comeback to validate themselves and got it.

The Troy Brown pass interference... it was a ticky tack call that doesn't often get called, especially by an officiating crew that only called 5 defensive pass interference calls all year long (that stat brought up in the pre-game show).

The roughing the passer call... that call was laughable. Peyton was barely touched and didn't even hit the ground. I'd bitch about that too.

Isiah Thomas said...

9 arrests should get you at least get you to the conference title game.

ebntx said...

boating under the influence?

unless he hit a swimmer or another boat, how do you come into contact with cops for that?

El Padrino said...

exactly tyler , exactly

temwr said...

Chris Henry is a WVY guy.

He and Pac Man Jones are trying to make WVU a school for thugz. I don't think it will take. Not unless Pat White and Steve Slaton get busted for running a crystal meth lab out of their apartment.

And then shoot someone.

Isiah Thomas said...

Classifying these 1000 comments is kicking my ass.

temwr said...

WVY = WVU

my head isn't in the game today.

the manager is going to have to pull me early and go to the bullpen.

thejugwhite said...

RE: boating under the influence...

There are cops out on the water that can stop a boat for random checks, and if you're drunk or have been drinking and they detect it...well, there you go.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

"Classifying these 1000 comments is kicking my ass."

do it statisticaly, just read evey 5th comment.

ToddPacker said...

tyler comes in (even without the bat-signal and even though it's not NBA) to set the record straight on SG...tyler is the LOV equiv to a drive by

El Padrino said...

how many offensive pass interferences did they call?
becasue that's what it was
whether or not they never call that they did and it's a foul

same thing in the nba when they call a carry or a travel
you don't see that often yet it happens all the time

the point is he didn't want to come off as a whiner but he did
and it would have been better if he just whined throughout the whole column

im done with sg for today
no mas

thejugwhite said...

If you read the Peter King article, he gave a lot of props to Manning on winning that game last night. Although King is a Pats fan, you couldn't detect any bitterness in his article.

SG is different though, he writes from a fans perspective...and fans whine when their team loses, complain about the bad calls or calls that didn't go their way, you get the picture. What do you expect?

whocares said...

Zeke,

Good work on the breakdown. You're like Jaws breaking down a Harrison route against a Cover 3.

JFreak said...

The Troy Brown thing was definitely pass interference.

That roughing the passer call was so bogus. That was so weak. I've seen babies burped harder.

ebntx said...

jug make a good point. when your team gets the calls, in your mind they are justified.

whocares said...

Oh yeah, I'm with tem and whoever else on the SG article. It blew.

temwr said...

I still like SG though.

Now I am with el p, no mas on SG.

I have no $$$ to go get a pop for some needed caffeine.

I might have to run out to my car and get some $$$. Which means while I am out there I might as well go to the bank and run some errands.

El Padrino said...

when man have no money, man must steal

JFreak said...

Yeah...so my voice...completely useless today.

El Padrino said...

speak up freak, i can't hear ya

ToddPacker said...

freak, i know how you feel, it took me a solid week to get my voice back from the NC game

Isiah Thomas said...

"freak, i know how you feel, it took me a solid week to get my voice back from the NC game "

and this was just from smoking Urban Crier's pole.

Sorry TP couldn't let a good opportunity to take a jab at you go to waste.

zeke don't you have to get back to your LOV statistical analysis...lumberg wants results

JFreak said...

What a great picture.

ebntx said...

freak, you should forward that pic to sg.

El Padrino said...

bob sanders is really short

ebntx said...

and for some reason, he doesnt look like much more than a cardboard cutout in that pic.

JFreak said...

He's the shortest defensive player in the NFL.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

It's true. Sanders does look like a cutout.

ToddPacker said...

that's funny..sanders does look a cut out...maybe he's trying to get the next "fat heads" commercial

temwr said...

he defintely looks like a cut out.

that is awesome.

The Rev said...

Sanders looks more like a bobblehead to me.

He's in the same pose as my Donovan McNabb bobblehead on my desk.

ebntx said...

rev, pulling a sg. comparisons to his team now.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

that's some high res. jfreak, your camera?

Beth82678 said...

Jug, if you're out there I think you can officially give up on the copter high score. I recently got on a huge roll and hit 8,169.

thejugwhite said...

I'm not hear to talk about the past.

thejugwhite said...

You might want to send that one into the Guinness Book of World Records...

El Padrino said...

not mentioned here but Bam Bam Bigelow dies

rip bam bam

ebntx said...

where'd you see that elp?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Pet Owners Are Nuts

ebntx said...

never mind

El Padrino said...

Bam Bam

Martin VanNostrand said...

The Beast from the East...he will be missed.

El Padrino said...

greetings from Asbury park!

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

yea, Bam Bam was a scary dude back in the day. Had a tattoo covering his head. By far the freakiest thing I had ever seen at that age. And then Mike Tyson and Michael Jackson went nuts and raised the bar.
