Super Bowl Sunday 2008

All Right!!! Was Super Bowl XLII one kickass game or what?!? The New York Giants came from behind to upset the New England Patriots in the last 35 seconds of the game. The Patriots got their asses handed to them, 17 to 14. You Go Giants!

Tom Brady played a hell of a game but he was sacked five times; pretty shocking for a record-setting quarterback. Eli Manning is now out from under his brother Peyton’s shadow — excellent work! And that incredible leaping catch by David Tyree was just too much.

Jordin Sparks opened with the National Anthem — a nice arrangement with some unusual chords that livened up a traditionally dull tune. And Tom Petty rocked the house during halftime.

OK, if you’ve read this far (and clicked on the links) you’ve figured it out — you’ve been had. You fell for the ol’ Bait and Switch. Gotcha! But you’re also a little bit more aware and informed now, right?

    Welp, ig the Giants could win the Superbowl this year, who knows? Maybe we will have a female or African-American president come this time next year!

    You may be right Jersey but if that does happen we just may see the republicans take back the congress in 2010.
    Besides the Giants were the under dogs and won but Barack and Hillary are not the under dogs are they?

    As for the Giants…we have some very Happy NY’ers here right now. It was the noisiest Superbowl win we ever had!!!!

  3. Jersey McJones Says:

    Barack and Obama are both underdogs to McCain, and if our history opf mysogyny and racism holds its course, either one would be doomed come November.

    As for the GOP taking back congress - AAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Not a chance. 28 GOP Housers and 6 GOP sentors are retiring this year alone. Givne the current balance, it would be extremely unlikely that could happen.

    I don’t think so Jersey most every you see or read most Americans want a democrat.
    So what are you saying the only way democrats are guaranted to keep the house is by Gop’s retiring?
    That’s pretty sad if that’s the only way.

  5. Jersey McJones Says:

    Nice try, Lisa. I don’t care what the media and pollsters say - if Hillary or Obama get the nod - and it’s certain it will be one of them - they’re going to have a very hard time dealing with the racism and mysogyny that remain staples of American society today.

    As for retirement - No, I wasn’t saying that, but nice try at a little jab there. What I’m saying is that with those retirements the likelyhood of a GOP come-back on the Hill is all the more lower.

    With the final score what it was..it was hardly an ass-whipping Tom ;)

    The fact that seasoned representatives are tossing in the towel is hardly a good thing for the Rethugs Lisa. Its far easier to get an incumbent reelected than a new face that no one is familiar with.

    folks,
    as the resident misanthrope i don’t really think any of this noise really matters. tom could have just as easily picked another series of websites and articles that would have scared the hell out of all of us if we took the time to absorb the message. Tharn is a very powerful force. (yes, tharn is spelled correctly.) someone define it for the rest, and i will know you are a reader of the classics.

  9. Craig R. Harmon Says:

    Presumably a reference to Watership Down, with this, from Wikipedia:

    Tharn is also a fictional word used to describe an animal frozen in terror.

    In Richard Adams’ novel “Watership Down” the term is used when the main characters, which are rabbits, see the headlights of oncoming cars and are frozen in place.

    No. I never read it but this is clear enough.

    Jersey:

    Comment 3 you said “Barack and Obama are underdogs” ROFLMAO!!!

    Anyone else think Tom Petty sounded awesome?

  11. Lisa Says:

    Yes Petty was awesome!

  12. Lisa Says:

    Dusty maybe now they are tossing in the towel because they don’t have the power the dems have right now,so they will have t wait it out and see if the dems become their own demise when put t the test.

    Joke for all you Hillary people:

    Hillary Clinton goes to a primary school in New York to talk about the world. After her talk she offers a question time.

    One little boy puts up his hand. The Senator asks him what his name is.

    “Kenneth,” the boy replies.

    “And what is your question, Kenneth?”

    “I have three questions:

    “First - whatever happened to the medical health care plan you were paid to develop during your husband’s eight years in the office as President?

    “Second - why would you run for President after your husband shamed the office?

    “Third - whatever happened to all those things you took when you left the White House?”

    Just then the bell rings for recess. Hillary Clinton informs the kids that they will continue after recess.

    When they resume, Hillary says, “Okay, where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time. Who has a question?”

    A different little boy puts his hand up. Hillary points him out and asks him what his name is.

    “Larry.”

    “And what is your question, Larry?”

    “I have five questions:

    “First - whatever happened to the medical health care plan you were paid to develop during your husband’s eight years in the office as President?

    “Second - why would you run for President after your husband shamed the office?

    “Third - whatever happened to all those things you took when you left the White House?

    “Fourth - why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?

    “Fifth - Where’s Kenneth?”

  14. Dusty Says:

    Lisa, maybe they retired because they were sick and tired of the neocons controlling the party and the agenda.

    That is more plausible than your excuse. I mean really..Rush Limpballs is railing against McCain like his life depends on it. He is trying to actually bring McCain down because McCain is a moderate, except for the damn war of course, and Limpballs hates him for being a moderate.

    It’s tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot imho.
