Well that was awesome

It took me a while to come down from the euphoria of Sunday night.  As EP and H know, there's a whirlwind of emotion and activity. I will say this is the first time that a team that I root for has ever won a championship of any kind.  I could probably write for days on this, but I won't waste everyone else's time.  A few things I learnt this weekend though:


  • driving 64 in a 45 at 1:45 am is frowned upon by the Colorado State patrol
  • apparently robert deniro is only a comedy actor now.  pretty sad really, but he's good at it, and can play a great straight guy old man.
  • Straight outta compton is a great movie, but probably only if you were an NWA/gangsta rap fan.  reminded me how much I loved their music, and hard to believe that a couple of those guys became ginormously wealthy, not to mention Dre being a frickin billionaire now. Also gives some context to Dre's song "let me ride" off of his Chronic LP.
  • Coldplay is the worst ever.  I now understand why beyonce and bruno were added because without them, it's the worst halftime ever.  Not sure that Chris Martin even knew there was a football game going on.  Only thing worse would have been a combo of nickelback and creed.
  • I liked the fact they brought out all the Super Bowl™ MVPs.  Although at about #10, cmblue looked at me and said "there are 40 more of these".  It was awesome to hear the crowd erupt when TD and Elway were introduced.  I looked at my buddy and said "pretty good broncos crowd there, huh?"  It became even more evident when Tom Brady was booed, and the guy from the Seahawks was booed. 
  • I never got my hands on a ticket, but my dad went and reported on the awesomeness.
Now for my game observations:
  • Going in, I had a little bit of faith, only because all the talk was about how great the Panthers offense was, and Cam and etc.  And knowing the guys on the Broncos D, that wasn't going to sit well.  But I still didn't think the offense had enough firepower because of that really strong Panthers D.  If I  was a betting man, i'd have probably picked the Panthers, the number seemed a little high though.
  • When Von Miller crushed Cam and forced the fumble the scoop and score, I started to believe the Broncos had a shot.  
  • I've been a Von fan since his first days here, even when he was being a douche.  I was always so disappointed when he would just disappear in big games. Well that's gone
  • Von Miller is going to be the highest paid defensive player in football.
  • Peyton doesn't have it anymore. If he tries to come back next year, that's just stupid.
  • Panther's D was as good as advertised.  
  • I'm pretty biased, but the performance by the broncos pass rushers in this Super Bowl™ has to go up there as one of the best of all time. It wasn't just Von, demarcus ware was getting home, Cam was uncomfortable the whole game, and if you add the performance against brady in the AFC championship, i'll say without a doubt, that's the best 2 game performance by a pass rush defense in history.  (I  love hyperbole)
  • Cam not diving for his fumble is perplexing to me.  Perhaps he thought it should have been an incomplete pass, but at this time on this stage, how can you take that chance.  It looks more like, he was worried guys were going to roll up on his knees so he bounced back.  Now, i'm not going to blame him on this, a lot of people have ripped him up for it.  But i've seen plenty of QBs not throw themselves into a pile (including Peyton Manning) to try and recover a fumble.  Granted, never in the waning moments of the super bowl ™ 
  • And last, I don't have a problem with Cam getting upset in the press conference.  I know he could hear Chris Harris talking about how they destroyed the panthers offense, and it was distracting.  But that's not even the problem.  It takes me back to when I was senior in highschool.  We lost in the California state championship game to Bakersfield.  Immediately after the game we had to go into a press conference thing where we all sat up there and answered questions.  It was the dumbest thing ever, some guys handled it great, but I was pissed and didn't want to talk about it.  It was probably a bigger deal to me than this loss was to Cam though, because that was the end of my career.  So I had a better reason to be pissed. (s) Eventually, i got up and walked out too.  So I get it Cam, your actions get a pass from me, it's totally understandable, and basically just acting like a 17 year old highschool kid who just lost the state championship.
47 days until pitchers and catchers.  (don't quote me on that)

You weren't a bronco fan when Elway won two in a row?

Meiz said...

"Mize, how did the phone interview go?"

Crap, IMO. I don't want the job. I didn't know it was our Meat Specialist position. I don't want to travel & have to do presentations.

Aitch said...

Yea, celebrating a championship is the best. Congrats and enjoy, Blue.

Aitch said...

I don't know if this D was the best ever, but I'd put them with the '85 Bears and the '00 Broncos as the top 3 defenses in my lifetime.

Aitch said...

I was actually surprised by the post-game coverage. They obviously celebrated Manning, but also appropriately credited the defense.

Keef said...

So Mize wants this job, then has a bad interview and is all I don't really want it. That's so Mize.

Keef said...

Need to buy a mattress and box spring for bgas2's new bed. If only I knew a guy...

Blue said...

"You weren't a bronco fan when Elway won two in a row?"

nah

i was living in Idaho, and didn't really have any allegiances, just dislike. I actually disliked Elway, and was tired of him always winning in the 80's.

Blue said...

back then my two main teams would have been the Lions and the Seahawks

Meiz said...

Fucked my back up again. Hurts to do anything.

Meiz said...

"So Mize wants this job, then has a bad interview and is all I don't really want it. That's so Mize."

I talked to one of the supervisors. I don't want to get in that deep.

Meiz said...

"I don't know if this D was the best ever, but I'd put them with the '85 Bears and the '00 Broncos as the top 3 defenses in my lifetime."

'95 Packers is up there. They were beasts.

Meiz said...

Freedom Tower was on fire, hey?

Keef said...

It was steam. Read a book, bro.

Keef said...

"I don't know if this D was the best ever, but I'd put them with the '85 Bears and the '00 Broncos as the top 3 defenses in my lifetime."



you mean 2000 Ravens?

Meiz said...

"It was steam. Read a book, bro."

I was at the pub. Pic looked like fire.

Blue said...

no the '00 broncos were beasts

Blue said...

the '00 ravens didn't rush the passer as well, you just couldn't move the ball against them.

i'm very biased, but the depth of that Denver D, there wasn't a weakness to pick on when everyone was healthy

and the point being made at least locally, is that they beat the best QBs in the game, and not just beat them, demoralized them

Keef said...

The same Denver D that was ranked 23rd in total D, 31st against the pass and 30th in scoring?

Aitch said...

"you mean 2000 Ravens?"

Yes, obviously. My bad.

Aitch said...

"the '00 ravens didn't rush the passer as well, you just couldn't move the ball against them"


The Ravens relied heavily on their defense, which set several records during the 2000 season, including fewest points allowed during a 16-game season (165) and fewest rushing yards allowed (970). The defense finished the season number one overall in points allowed, and Ray Lewis was named defensive player of the year by the Associated Press. Starting cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Duane Starks combined to intercept ten passes, and defensive end Rob Burnett contributed with 10.5 sacks.

Blessed be.

Currently getting that "Militia" up outta that Oregon state building right now, guys.

El Padrino said...

Guys watch the highlights of the super bowl yet?

Carolina left a lot of plays on the field. Ays they made all year. Just were not ready for this stage.

El Padrino said...

And how odd was that punt return by norwood

Keef said...

It was tough enough to watch one time

Blue said...

"And how odd was that punt return by norwood"

that's what happens when dude only punts it 28 yards...norwood should have fair caught it, the fact it worked out for him was a miracle

Meiz said...

Kev, Reds/Breers awfulness bet this year?

Meiz said...

"Kev, Reds/Breers awfulness bet this year?"

half win difference in Vegas.

Keef said...

So the winner is whoever has fewer wins?

Keef said...

A man wielding a machete stormed a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and attacked several people before he was killed by police, authorities said Thursday.
The suspect was the only one killed. Nobody inside the Nazareth restaurant and deli said they knew him, according to police.
"(He) immediately began swinging a machete at customers and employees inside," Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner said. "There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after as soon as he walked in, according to some of the witnesses."
Police have tentatively identified the suspect but would not reveal his name or age.



Hopefully it wasn't tem.

Blue said...

need to ban the sale of all machetes now

tem said...

not me.

aside: sergeant Richard Weiner....come on.



Keef said...

grow up

tem said...

never

Meiz said...

"So the winner is whoever has fewer wins?"

More, silly.

El Padrino said...

Kendall Jackson 2007 Cabernet

Keef said...

More, silly.



I don't think Cincy is winning more games than anyone this season

Meiz said...

Okay fine. What if the Brewers trade Lucroy before the season starts?

tem said...

Did lp just post a $10 bottle of wine name?

Keef said...

KJ cab is usually about $14-15

Meiz said...

Ritzy

Keef said...

These dunks are suite

Meiz said...

"Did lp just post a $10 bottle of wine name?"

$35 in NY, Keith.

Meiz said...

Derp. tem.

tem said...

Could be keith. He named the real price.

Meiz said...

Okay, Keith. I'll give it to you. Chrissy Teigen is kinda fug.

Keef said...

Can't stand her

Meiz said...

Bitch can't even smile right.

Meiz said...

You're still wrong about Taylor Swift though.

Keef said...

I don't even know what to say about her. I wouldn't say she's ugly, but she's not hot. She just annoys me though.

Aitch said...

I wouldn't kick her out of bed

Blue said...

nerd jelly beans

that is all

Blue said...

oh, and i'd totally bang taylor swift


Blue said...

i'd probably also bang chrissy tiegen

Blue said...

i'd also hump on the weeknd's ladyfriend

Keef said...

bang is a totally different question

Blue said...

well i'm not going to go hang out at the mall with her

Keef said...

That wasn't the question either

Meiz said...

Supervisor is having individual meetings with us next week. Can't wait to hear what I do that she doesn't like. I've been avoiding work like the plague since I found out about the pay rates.

Blue said...

tell her keith doesn't like taylor swift

Meiz said...

Noted.

Blue said...

i think it's quite possible that Kanye west has down syndrome

or sids

not sure which, but his mind isn't fully developed

Blue said...

he's more of a looney tune than bugs bunny


Blue said...

few things better in life than watermelon jolly ranchers

Meiz said...

They're the best. I always save them for last in a bag of jolly ranchers.

Keef said...

wall?

tem said...

death. finally.

good run folks.

it was fun.

Keef said...

Couldn't even make it 10 years

El Padrino said...

Who is writing the obit?

Meiz said...

"Couldn't even make it 10 years"

We're almost there

Blue said...

I'll get out the aed, we still got some life left in it

Meiz said...

We're just lazy now. I obviously have time to write, I just choose not to.

El Padrino said...

Mad busy yo

In jax office

Blue said...

i'm traveling a lot now too, so makes it tough to keep up a good schedule

Keef said...

Can't wait til internets are mobile

Meiz said...

"Mad busy yo"

This, too. Fucking work.

Meiz said...

We also ran out of things to talk about years ago.

Keef said...

It's like marriage basically

S

Partly

Meiz said...

Hey guys.

Keef said...

Hey there

Meiz said...

Maybe I'll type up a bnew post this weekend.

El Padrino said...

Theron is fire

Blue said...

nah

Blue said...

Stuck on 85

ToddPacker said...

87

ToddPacker said...

trump penis and oj knife would have made for huge comment days in the old LoV days

Meiz said...

Man, you ain't lyin'.

Meiz said...

I think we're just numb as a society now.

Aitch said...

I just renewed the domain name.

Here's to another year of mediocrity.

Meiz said...

Good lookin' out.

Aitch said...

Happy birthday, Meiz

Blue said...

FUUUUUUUUUUUCK


good bye brock

Blue said...

welp, enjoyed that super bowl

Aitch said...

Might lose Anderson, too.

El Padrino said...

Yo

El Padrino said...

Fleener will be over drafted like a mother now in fantasy

Blue said...

probably won't lose CJ because they'll have a chance to match any offer

Blue said...

apparently they're in the process of trading for Kaepernick, who is willing to restructure his contract.

this makes me throw up in my mouth a little

Blue said...

the big talk here is that if Olivier Vernon can get a contract like he got, what the hell will Von Miller demand. Rumors floating out there that he'll get over 20m/year now, more than Suh money

Blue said...

giants paying out straight cash homie

Blue said...

i guess i'm more disappointed in Malik Jackson leaving than the Brock deal.

i figured they'd keep one of those 2

Meiz said...

I hope Bob Griffin gets a starting gig & sets the league on fire.

Blue said...

SANCHISE

Blue said...

can't wait for the butt fumble v3.0

Meiz said...

OMG, Blue. I'm so sorry.

Keef said...

He can't be worse than 2015 Peyton Manning

Blue said...

hey, it should at least be interesting

Keef said...

at least

Blue said...

CJ stays.

its like winning the super bowl all over again

Keef said...

I just had a back and forth email conversation with an attorney, and his last email reply was "Thanx".

Aitch said...

People here are MAAAAAD about Chandler Jones being traded to Arizona.

Blue said...

But you got a 2nd round pick, and a guard who was a top 10 pick.

Blue said...

Pats always let guys go a year early. Probably knew they couldn't afford to re-sign him next year

Aitch said...

Oh, I'm fine with the trade, Blue. Jones was a good, but streaky player who faded down the stretch every season. The numbers bear that out. However, a lot of people around here are bandwagon fans who know nothing about football.

Keef said...

That guard who was a top 10 pick is not very good.
Pats got Chris Long, though, so fans are happy again. Until they realize this isn't 2010.

Aitch said...

Nope, they're still pissed

Blue said...

pats fans should be happy, they signed Tom Brady to an extension

Meiz said...

Fucking Martellus.

Blue said...

this used to be one of the busiest LOV days of the year

Keef said...

TP just said the same thing in a text. I text him about the yahuge tOSU/FU NIT game.

Blue said...

maybe it's because we're all socially connected now

Keef said...

A New York father is facing up to 250 years in prison after admitting to a court Monday that he posed as his daughter’s online boyfriend so he could extort nude photographs from her.


Fucking LP

Blue said...

250 years seems excessive, well unless the daughter is like 14. if she's 24 different story

Aitch said...

Wtf? That's messed up

Aitch said...

Full story

What a sick fuck.

Meiz said...

I was out at the Cedar Dome the 1st 2 days of the tourney. I have the shakes like a champ.

Meiz said...

Minimum 12 hours at the bar 2 days in a row, somehow my tabs were $40.02 & $34.38.

Yeah, they got tipped 50%.

Meiz said...

That even included food twice a day.

Blue said...

Portugal is near Belgium, pray for H

Keef said...

Keef said...

Or does Brussels count?

Meiz said...

Dude. Phife Dawg.

Keef said...

H had to splain who that was to me

Meiz said...

That's really unfortunate

Keef said...

Pfft

Keef said...

Keef said...

Is Harvey gonna start on opening day? Depends.

What happened to this?

ToddPacker said...

"What happened to this?"

too much time spent working on team names for trivia night?

Meiz said...

"What happened to this?"

Liquor probably

Meiz said...

Blue, you see that Tesla 3? Starting @ 35K.

Keef said...

He already put his $1000 down

Blue said...

I did, and I'm thinking about it. I'm skeptical though

El Padrino said...

Fucking marlins man

Keef said...

So Ahmad Rashad basically follows MJ for life? He's sitting next to him at the game

Keef said...

Wow what a game
