Have a Great Super Bowel

Apparently there’s a super bowel coming up today? Possibly the result of a stomach flu going around, or maybe somebody didn’t properly refrigerate the egg salad. Or does having a super bowel mean you don’t get the stomach flu? I’ll have to Google this …


Turns out it’s the Super Bowl.

Well, as long as I’ve got it up here, might as well look into details. Okay, so the Denver Broncos and the … Carolina Panthers? Aren’t they a college team? How badly did the NFL teams do this year, to get beat by a college team? Oh, turns out they’re a pro team. I wonder which Carolina it is … Okay, Charlotte, so that’s North Carolina. I thought all the sports air down there was taken up by NASCAR. But I don’t watch NASCAR either, so what do I know?

Say, it’s the 50th Super Bowl! I haven’t watched one since the Colts played, maybe I should check it out. Let’s see … kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. Nope—that’s about the bedtime before my third shift job.

Guess I’ll catch the commercials later.

Funny, I thought the balls were brown.

    1. There are some women I wouldn’t want ruling the world … but there are a *lot* more men who shouldn’t be doing it. And the men have already had their chance to screw things up!

  1. I quit watching after it was plain the NFL was cheating. Check the Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl back in 2001. Entire starting lineup goes to the pro bowl. Undefeated in the playoffs. Loses the GAME BEFORE THE SUPERBOWL to the Giants 48-0. WHAT!?!?!?!?!

    Don’t even get me started about how the St. Louis Rams won a Super Bowl from a ref cheating in the last play of the game after the clock ran out. The Rams were sacked before the touchdown, and they gave it to them anyway.

    Now you got 3-4 teams trying to move to LA. Sigh.

    1. Good thing you aren’t still watching–deflategate would have given you a stroke. But since I honestly just don’t really care one way or another, it’s prime fun-poking territory for me.

      1. It should be poked at with a rusty stick. The Mannings trying to be a “football dynasty” is up there with a El Jefe interviewing with Sean Penn.

        Chris Gatling intentionally seeing the football inbound and intentionally missing the catch – that was enough on my nerves.

        1. Now, in high school phys-ed I would duck … does that count as intentionally missing the catch? After that they let me hide under the bleachers with my book, which is what I had in mind all along. (In fairness, I should add that I was talked once or twice into going to games, but I spent the whole time watching the cheerleaders.)

          1. If you were on a competitive high school team, and were known as “The Hunter” or “The Beast Hunter” and led the team varsity to an undefeated regular season and got paid to drop/fumble every catch in your hands the game before the championship game like Chris Gatling did, then yes, that would count.

            He literally was like “I got it, I got it, I got it” watching the ball and jumped BACK as the ball came down intentionally avoiding it. This was on over 46 play conversions.
