Talk about the game, the commercials or why you are not watching it
Oh ok. I'm not watching because I don't give a shit about any sport but hockey. And I especially don't give a shit about commercials.I don't even know who's playing today, but I know Jim Harbaugh is involved, and I had a crush on him when I was 10.
Not a big football fan so I'll skip it. Last few years I had to work, so it's nice to do nothing except goof off!
Homeland for me!!! All day season 1 and 2…wahoo!!
Murderer vs Homophobes. Not much to root for, there, so I'm going to try and stream the Puppy Bowl.
@me – 'Homeland' is a guilty pleasure. I criticize while I'm watching, but manage to enjoy it, nonetheless.
I only watch HS and college football, so no go for me unless it's my beloved Saints.
I'm watching West Wing's debate episode (btw Jimmy Smits & Alan Alda as the Dem & Repub candidates respectively). I *seriously* wish this episode was how real debates went! They both did a fantastic job on that episode – it was filmed live and there are some slip-ups, which makes it seem even more real.
I need a Sunday dessert… anyone have suggestions? I'm thinking maybe brownies…
I always watch even though my team never makes it. Still fun.
Got the kid so it is all about the Puppy Bowl and kitten half time show today. I am DVRing the super so I can see some commercials if I get bored later.
Since the Pats aren't playing I'm watching the Puppy Bowl.
Prolixe- I made microwave chocolate cake last night and it was very easy and very tasty. It is called mug cake. The recipes is only a few ingredients so if you want it let me know.
Watching way south of the border where soccer is revered. Folks from England have already shat on a viewing. Major bar will have 4 screens. Yet another bar is showing and has food specials. I'm attending another party first. We'll see who heads down to the game with me when that is finished. Should be about second quarter at the latest. I will report back……..
Fast and Furious. Fast and Furious lol
I'll watch Beyonce perform, that's about it.
@prolixe Hershey cocoa has the best recipe for brownies on the outside of the container.
Luv the Saints too!!
Went to the best Superbowl NY vs NE; of what I can remember
I'm not watching because my Cowboys aren't playing and because I drank too much last night and have a hangover from hell. I may tune in for some commercials, though.
I will silently root for the 49ers because I think they're cooler than the Ravens.
No surprise that there aren't a lot of football fans among the CDAN regulars. However, here's a betting tip for you tyros stuck at Super Bowl parties who want to pick up some easy money: if Kaepernick drives the Niners for four first downs through the air on their first possession, offer to take the Niners plus 7. If he gets the Niners into the red zone on the first possession, take the Niners plus 10. Basically, if there's any sign that Kaepernick can pass on the Ravens, Niners will win by ten or more points. Current line is 3-4 points Niners.
Oh, and obviously, if you can find anyone willing to bet the Ravens even (i.e., no points), take their money!
Yeah yeah yeaaaaahhh!!! Where have you been you handsome devil you!!!
I have many interests, but football is not one of them. In fact, I can't stand it. Needless to say, I won't be watching it. The highlight of my day is the Puppy Bowl.
Love football, but since the teams I normally follow ended up 31st and 32nd in the standings this year, I don't have a lot of interest. I'll be rooting for the Niners, though, because my cousin's wife's sister's kid plays for them, and because I can't stand Ray Lewis.
I've seen the Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdale colt, though, and cried every time I watched it.
never got into football. So I'm going to play video games instead.
It's also the NCA NDA dance/cheer competition. As a childhood cheerleader I still enjoy watching competitions.
Still watching Golden Girls on WE, and loving it!!!!! "This is strictly off the record, but Dirk's nearly 5 years younger than I am." "In what Blanche, dog years?" Never gets old!
@ MadLyb – Me too re Homeland. I bitch about it, but I'm glued to the TV. When I was watching Season 1 on Netflix they had S2 available on streaming. When I was done with S1, S2 was no longer available on streaming so now I'm waiting for them to have S2 discs available. We have Dish network and they don't have On Demand. Argh!
(And don't get me started on Downton Abbey. I watched the season finale on Wednesday. I sort of knew what was coming but I want to punch writer Julian Fellowes in the throat anyway.)
No football for me. I watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet and now I'm watching old episodes of Dr. Phil (my guilty pleasure) that were on this morning on OWN. Yup, just a regular Sunday for me!
Watching Harry Potter, the Sorcerer's Stone
Puppy Bowl is off the hook!
Hey is Honey boo boo on tonight?
Omg! I totally used to make this when I moved out, my first yr of college. Ohhhhh!! Its soooo good =)
Going to a bar here to chat with my buddies and glance at the game when everyone starts spazzing out. I have some money on the betting squares so here's hoping I win some cash-o-la! Go 49ers.
mango. no spoilers for me for the Abby:)
No Pats, so I may check in a few times to see the score, but my BFF got the DVDs of McMillan & Wife for me at my birthday so it's a Mac, Sally, Mildred & Enright marathon in my house!
Matchbox 20? Really?
Has anyone seen my big fat American gypsy wedding? Woow. We got some real gems hur in murica.
I always get 3doorsdown and matchbox confused. They both are so whiny.
I took Ravens becauseI believe the Pats punishment must be complete.
Debating whether to watch…that golden girls marathon sounds mighty tempting though…
@Mango, I'm with you. Let's rumble on him. I'll bring brass knuckles.
Love this! I feel the same way. I'm def not a football or any kind of sports fan for that matter, but I really just watch for the commercials. Also being quiet about the 49ers, only cuz I'm from Cleveland, & a lot of my guy friends would be pissed if they knew. Haha.
I am not watching it because it hasn't started yet. I'll probably turn it on in about an hour and 15 mins or so.
It's live on Australian tv but unfortunately that is Monday 10am here so I will be at work. I would consider watching a replay just to find out what the fuss is about. Also, why is it on a Sunday?! I guess lots of people will be calling in sick tomorrow…
I don't have a tv. Decided I was spending way too much time in front of the boob tube and got rid of it. Now I just watch stuff online , and it has made me watch tv a lot less.
I am not watching simply because I don't care about football. I've had a few boyfriends try and get me involved in the sport but no matter how hard I try I like it, I just can't muster any enthusiasm whatsoever. Basketball, MMA, soccer ( go timbers! ) all can hold some interest but football? No thanks. Plus I have to work tonight so I can think of much better ways to spend my afternoon off!
@Alicia – NO PITY!
I'm so not skeeved at Kaepernick citing his faith when he's talking about his tattoos. He's not a Tebow. Just a humble kid.
Mind you, I totally hope he blows his knee out on the last play after he's buried the Ravens, because my Seahawks have to play against him twice a season.
Making my husband a chocolate, banana, peanut butter cake. It smells awesome in my house.
B- doesn't the bible state our bodies are temples. So you paint all over the temple. I never got that. Body art is one thing but getting a tattoo of the word FAITH is a bit beyond tacky.
Oh god, Namath looks like an old queen!
And it's on his right arm. Is he left handed or does he not jackit because he is celibate.
I hope San Fran wins. It's beeeenn awhile…
B- I worked on a boat doing catering. We would go around lake union and lake Washington. The most fun were game days.
I don't really watch sports. If I remember I will probably flip over and watch the Beyonce show but usually I forget and watch it online the next day.
I'm watching but I'll be letting the dog out and taking the garbage out during half time!
As a Steeler fan, I just cannot root for the Ravens. So let's go Niners!
I ended up making an espresso brownie bites recipe… the batter was yummy, but the brownies didn't set up right. Grrr.
@misspeg86, Sunday is a no work day for most people in the US (that is, most traditional/office/corp jobs). The general idea is that HS games are Friday nights (homecoming games are played on Friday so the dance is held on Saturday), college games on Saturdays (so the students can party Sat evening & have Sunday to recover from hangovers & ready for school on Monday), pro games played on Sundays prior to the big Monday night football games.
This link gives some idea of how it works.
(Oh, and every year, there is a bunch of discussion about moving SP to Saturday. Those against cry tradition, those for cry convenience. NFL change is PITA.)
That would be the Super Bowl, not SP.
Jennifer Hudson did good. Alice is a little pitchy but they both sang live.
Well smash, if you worked catering on Lake Washington I've bet you've got even better stories about Husky game days.
Sonny Sixkiller rules!
(BTW, who the hell would ever make onion dip with lite sour cream? If you're gonna shovel horribly unhealthy gobs of milk fat into your mouth, is the little extra fat gonna make that much difference?)
Yay, Chris Collinsworth! Sadly, Ray Lewis probably will make it into the Hall.
Husky games days were THE best. We had some major sailgating going on. One time we had all three of our boats hooked up side by side. My coworkers were all also my friends so we would drink or smoke and not get in trouble.
im not watching. I couldnt really care less. Im not really into sports. If i do however watch sports its things like UFC and fifa… i dont even really care about olympics since it promotes barriers.
Id rather watch a good action movie tbh while i crochet
No I'm watching the Gold Girls marathon
LOL I mean Golden Girls
My number one question to dudes who watch football. Is what percent of those through the middle passes actually work. It always seems like they are just running into a wall of men.
Well, I've already seen all of the commercials….
(Budwiser and Taco Bell were the best, imo.)
Niners running some very sophisticated formations at the start, but makes no difference.
What do you mean by "middle passes," smash? Crossing patterns?
Going to a Super Bowl party to hang out with my friends and have some adult beverages! I could not care less about the game itself, though I have decided to root for the Ravens, because ravens are cool, mystical birds with supernatural portent. Also, I believe these are the Baltimore Ravens and one of my favorite TV series of all time is The Wire
I guess when you only need a few yards it works
Trying to just pass and rush through the middle, I don't know what it is called.
I got a little choked up at the Sandy Hook chorus.
If the 49s can't snap back with something big I think this is going to be a shut out.
5 wideouts? And it worked. Some very sophisticated offensive coaching on both sides so far.
Hahahaha wow I will never take bud seriously.
I will hope for a Ravens win because I used to love the Baltimore Colts and never forgave them for leaving.
I realize that makes no sense however, since I don't really care about either team…
Love m and ms my favorite snack junk food
I tried to post here , but blogger ate it. We will be watching after my husband gets home from work. Until then, I am watching my daughter play Arkham Asylum and I am making some finger foods. I also have steaks marinating in the fridge.
If I get some gumption in the next few minutes, those brownies mentioned up above sound like a great idea.
I like your reasoning! Me, I'm rooting for Baltimore, because they were named as an homage to "The Raven" and Edgar Allan Poe…and because I <3 The Wire
Ok I'm now watching because husband has put the game on and hid the remote.
Anyone want to gossip about anything other than the game? 90210 or any 90s gossip perhaps? Whatever is your fancy.
Budweiser trying to launch yet another new brew? They are so desperate. The microbrew movement has been destroyingAnnheiser-Busch!
As an owner of an Audi I would most definitally allow a 17year old to drive it.
@DB my phone flipped out on me, was responding to your post!
Yes cus bullying bully's is cool. Go daddy really fucking ewww.
I do not subscribe to cable so I am watching the game online courtesy of CBSSports until the Sunday night shows get posted. "Mrs. Brown's Boys" should be posted soon by our friends across the pond.
Doritos has been pulling it out lately.
Ugh I thought Alicia was horrible and off pitch. Jennifer was great.
Do you think the kid playing "Walter" did that ad for free?
That play!! Why! It just causes confrict!
That was my favorite of the Doritos entries.
Kaepernick looks uneasy in the pocket–oop, but there's an example of why you run crossing patterns!
@ prolixe – yes! I have a No Pity scarf I adore:) are you a fellow rose city occupant?
I could have done without the sound in the GoDaddy commercial.
Niners are running a lot of draws. Unusual this early in a game.
I guess it does work sometimes. Is it rushing up the middle?
And if the Budwiser Clydesdale commercial doesn't make you tear up, you have a heart of stone.
Kaep checks off again–but it works!
A draw is when you fake a run and then hand it off to one of your backs.
Checking off again!
I'm sure he would have! For some reason I was thinking, "what if that was his first acting gig?", if he ever won a SAG award he would have a pretty interesting "how I got my SAG card" story.
Prolixe- it has some blonde bimbo making out with a fat nerd with the lovely sounds of saliva and lips A smackin!
"Call the Midwife" has been posted so no more game for me. I may keep the window open to peruse the commercials.
Checking it off- I hate that play. He looks scuuurd.
Defensive better step it the f up.
So the sack shuts down the Niners drive, but Kaep's legs clearly have the Ravens 'backers worried.
Smash, it's Bar Refaeli.
Amy P BBY commercial way funnier than those insipid Will Arnett Windows Phone ones.
Raves are cool kids (the new normal)
Hahaha best buy got their money's worth. Hahaha. 50 shades should thank her also.
Fuck Budweiser. Buy local. Fremont Brewing Co. Always. Always!!
Big Bang got a smile from me.
Thank you Lola. A clothes bimbo none the less since she is a "model".
I don't watch because I couldn't care less about sports.
Fremont Brewing is great! I'm partial to Diamond Knot – love their IPA's.
(My cousin and some buddies got sucked into a taste test for a new Annheiser-Busch brew a few years ago. They said it was terrible. Apparently Michelob has lost so much market share they're gonna take it off the market.)
Is it Steven Soterburg who is going Oz? What else has he done? Beautiful imagery.
Soda companies are getting desperate.
No one cares that much about Oreo. USE iSTAGRAM dammit!!!
V- my favorite is their summer ale. Every summer I buy a keg. And the ipa is fantastic.
I think the director is Sam Raimi who did Spider-Man.
"Checking it" is useful when you only need a few yards I guess.
My "Budweiser" when I'm in the Bay Area is Gordon Biersch Maerzen. I'm drinking out of a G-B bock assortment 12 today.
Thank you V. I have not seen spider man. It is a bummer they are limiting it to pg.
Agree on all points.
I love the abundance of micro-brews in the PNW. My only issue is that I don't have time to try them all!
Boy has got an arm.
"Checking off" is when the QB changes the play at the line of scrimmage. When Kaep was stepping up and yelling at the linemen and wideouts, he was changing the play.
Flacco is getting very lucky…
I have a sensitive system when it comes to any alcohol and it is really nice to be able to enjoy a glass of there beer with little to no side affect.
@prolixeSeems like you already made your dessert, but for future reference and anyone else reading – my fast and easy "go to"…Take any kind of chocolate you have in the house (chips, bars) and melt in a large microwave safe bowl for two minutes. If you have or like peanut butter you can stir in a few scoops of that. Gently stir in some kind of savory cereal (chex, mini wheats, kix, or even mini pretzels.or mini crackers)Put in a plastic zip lock bag (or just cerfully in the bowl) toss and cover in powdered sugar. The powdered sugar will.dry and coat them into individual little bites!Always a hit.
B- I mean when they pass it and go up the middle.
I love the Rock. He is a cutie pie. A whole new level! haha.
Dragon! I hope you didn't miss it!
Toyota has a great marketing team. I hope they get paid.
That is good to know. I have a friend who is sensitive to alcohol too. Maybe now she can enjoy a pint!
Does Vin Diesel do anything but F&F movies anymore?
B- no. Well their was that action sci fi series Ridyc? Or something.
Well, I'm not watching it first because I'm in Brazil and second because I don't care about football… or soccer…
Was that Billy Crudup as the villain? I so can't wait for FF6, I love the series – a guilty pleasure
That is more like it!! Get back into the game.
I get it now, those calls Kaep is making in the shotgun are not check offs, although he did make one check off in this drive Yeah, they're option calls.
Doritos is pulling it out like I said.
I like a real mans body not a Barbie doll.
That Calvin Klein commercial was spectacular.
Trust us. We are watching for the half time show.
I'm in Ireland. 2nd qtr has just started. It is 12.15 am . I have beer, nacho's and salsa so I'm all set. I love the Super Bowl, even if I don't really understand everything that's going on. (I am a soccer girl, although over here THAT is football).Hope you all are enjoying the game.
Smash, I think she gets more bimbo points for dating Leo than for being a model. :p
I like the conceit of the Calvin Klein ad: 99% of the guys watching the game don't have the body to wear that underwear.
Sitting here in Austin with my Flacco jersey on and fingers crossed:D
I adore the Rock too. He's so cuddly, lol.
Peanut butter, dark chocolate chunks and vanilla bean ice cream. Just putting that out there.
U, where do you get nacho chips in Ireland? Crisps, sure, but tortilla chips?
Pelicans pub is also a very good beer.
I'm old enough that I remember when Bud Adams was PDX mayor….
B, I would imagine that tortilla chips are fairly ubiquitous.
Dammit, not Ribisi! He's a clam.
@Pro @smash Pelicans Pub is yummy! I agree about taking the trip down to Pac City.
I remember hearing about the Sam Adams suit, I hope it was thrown out!
The godaddy commercial was much better and much more like reality.
Please, please, please forgive me for typing Jillian Michael's – I am going to go and shave my head in shame for violations against the grammar gods.
Prolixe- who cares.:)
Why do they keep making the dark deep voices the evil characters! Why can't he have a high pitched voice?
All I saw was the rock and milk. Hahaha.
Congrats for the 104th season of Survivor!
How about spending less on milk advocacy ads and less on dairy subsidies!
Man, the 49ers are playing like shit.
(Says Captain Obvious)
I feel like there has been a lot of animosity in this nfl football season. Watching the Seahawks games almost every game there was some tiff .
Kaep checked off again and then threw a pick. Boy is rattled.
Star Trek! Zachary Quinto! Spock! Fuck you, Ray Lewis! Wooop!
I sure hope no one took my betting advice….
Get your hormones under control ladies!!
Oooooohhh girl. I can't wait for this half time show!!!
Clever! The Harbaugh boys are going at each other hammer and tongs.
He must not have crossed his heart the right way.
More of a basketball fan, here. But Wifey is a huge Niners fan (originally from the bay area), so I root for them and she's happy.
They're the ones with the gold helmets, right? Kidding.
Dang on that fake! Nice plan, poor execution.
This commercial is racist towards islands. Totally joking. :/
Sex, music, guns, men.
I found nothing offensive in the Volkswagen commercial.
HA! The VW commercial amuse me. Especially since some groups were all up in arms about it being discriminatory and then the president of Jamaica was all like, "we love it!"
I was joking puggle. It was fine.
Kaep checked off twice on that play! Something is really screwed with the Niners play calling.
Smash, I didn't see your comment until mine was published. I was talking about all the stink that was made about it.
Ravens are fired up!
D* it, smash, I already did a Meredith! You should've spoken sooner!!
@V – I should've clarified that it was a cease & desist letter that they sent before they knew that SA PDX was an actual mayoral candidate. They settled with an "it's OK for the campaign" statement. I freelance for local rags and was assigned research on the story back then for one of them. Unbelievably boring, despite the headlines – wading through 18 pages of lawyer-speak just to pull the quote that basically said it's all good.
Article a couple of days ago where a bunch of people bent about the VW commercial, saying it makes Jamaicans (implied "black people") look like they're happy all the time – the Jamaican tourism board responded with… WE ARE, come find out! LOL
Well as someone from "the islands", I found the VW ad spectacularly offensive. I mean shouldn't that have been a Red Stipe ad? Just sayin…
I LOVE this ad! (Taco Bell)
@prolixethe pretzel version is awesome. I started with just plain chocolate and chex long ago, but just keep experimenting with different ingredients all the time. Different kind of nut butter's are awesome as well.
It wasoffensive pass interference!
@B Profane you can get tortilla chips anywhere. Hotter the better!!!
I liked that Taco Bell ad..
Talk about spectacularly bad defensive coverage!
Not watching it for the first time in my adult life. Why? Unrepentant homophobes on the 'Niners and Ray Lewis. I can't get invested in either team no matter how hard I try.
These 49ers are killing me! This group likes to come from behind. I'm used to old school 49ers who just beat the other team outright.
Is the puppy bowl still on?
@B – not necessarily. They did come back on ATL…
@VExactly! They LOVE to come from behind! Greenbay and New England were nail biters too.
Puggle ~the puppy Bowl is still on animal planet.
Kaep is no Montana when it comes to comebacks…but, man, that kid has a gun!
If he can keep throwing them like this 49s would have a chance.
NOBODY is Montana! Ask dufas Tom Brady who swears he is.
Good riddance Sam Adams! I'm so glad that guy is out of office!
How long will it take them to build her "stage"
Hope the Ravens can keep it up. Now for Bey
I already know what's going (is happening now) to happen. Ravens are going to get cocky and blow the second half. Jim is going to do his magic in the locker room and different team will emerge. It's so classic with this 49er team.
Under the Dome was SUCH a good book. Can't wait for the show!
I am actually excited this year for the Grammys!
Under the done sounds cool. I was hoping M night shamylans (not spelled right) village would be like that . I was disappointed when it wasn't.
Dome not done.
Ahhhh, clam ad! Was that a local or national ad?
Everytime they show that Grammy spot, it's hard to believe Whitney has been gone almost a year.
I didn't get a clam ad. I did get a snip of wa state fair but it cut out.
Local. We had a Sonic ad in TX.
How weird, the clams buying a Super Bowl ad, if only a local (Bay Area) one.
Tuned in just in time to see Jones pull that move. Holy cow!
Funny. That play was a big fail.
The aspect ratio must be off on my TV. All the halftime promos make Beyonce look fat.
Hahahahahaha. Not thats just her look.
SAW MY FAST and FURIOUS trailer. I can die happy now.
My cable keeps breaking up.
All I can think about re the dome is The Simpsons Movie. Maybe everyone hasn't seen that movie as many times as I have!
I JUST WON TWO HUNDIES IN THE BETTIN POOL!!!! This game rules!
She has oohh and awweed danced and yelled. Not sang!!!!
Well she clearly isn't lip syncing now. Gawd, she bugs me.
It must be really hard to dance like that and sing live…
Obnoxious as fucking hell. She really didn't siiiiinng anything!
That is my go-to comfort movie! Love it!
She isn't even singing! Just grunting.
She is talk singing now. With a heavy backing track.
What kind of shit song is this?
The former graduate lighting design student in me is agog at the cost of all that lighting!
What's up with those ugly angle boot heels? They are so ugly. Bewolf looks like she raided Vanity's closet.
B- that have to have something that distracts from the actual shit proformance going on.
No clam ad in OK either.
@BProfane – ILLUMINATI.
Actually excited now!
Illuminati symbol she just threw up
Wrong. Still shitty.
Destiny's Child! Brings me back!
I love the fact Beyonce has turned down the mic on the other destiny's child girls and is throwing them shade even tho this is actually making her show all 3 of them together… hahaha( im a bit of a lurker..Hi )
that is the worst halftime show ever
Sing bitch. You are just my backup huntie.
Lol they shot Kelly and Michelle up like a rocket
She is POSSESED.
Sorry, whenever she does "Single Ladies" all I can think of is the SNL spoof of that song.
Oh look! It's the Supremes! Oh wait, Destiny's Child.
THAT was the reunion? The fuck?
Just was about to say the same thing! Their mics are half as loud as hers!
This is just reminding me that so many Beyonce songs suck, and that Destiny's Child was fabulous.
i'd be more impressed if she gave birth on stage to Pillow Baby
She totally should have kept Kelly and Michele out there.
We get it. You are live, just sing the fucking song and stop being over the top.
Halo was the best part
B, all I can think of is the Jonas Brothers spoof.
Lol to whoever said she raided Vanity's closet. That's all I can think about when I look at her now.
Seriously the only moment I enjoyed was my brief trip down memory lane with destinys child. Otherwise bull cocky. Atleast she sang live right guys! Right?!
I guess when you can't lip synch as planned you go ahead with a Destiny's Child reunion?
I dont get what people see in beyonce. She just meh.
Nice background track Bey.
This Jeep ad is making me cry!
Auntliddy- she has a large booming voice and it can be pretty. But she has just dog gone went to damn far.
That performance was almost as good as her pregnancy act.
Lol, Rick that's what I was wondering…did she only give in after the lip synching debacle?
I dont get the fuss over beyonce, i really dont. Shes just meh.
That Jeep ad was really, really moving.
Fsp- Great AVI as usu. (short for usual) and pitch perfect comment.
Beyonce was MEH….
but it IS definitely hard to song and dance.
Ugh, I wish she would've lip synced now. That sorta blew. The two seconds of Destiny's Child was the best part.
That sucked. Seriously. And was that pre taped? So they "filmed" her but videotaped the actual football game? Hated it.
WTF, was that commercial? (2 Broke Girls)
Well, the highlight for me so far was the Taco Bell commercial with all the senior citizen peeps and the Fun song. And, I am quite intrigued that two brothers are coaching each of the teams. Their parents must be on an emotional rollercoaster.
Wow. And we are not showing our youth some over sexualized shit. Jeesh.
I loved the Two Broke Girls promo much better than I liked the halftime show.
As a Houston girl, I freaking loved the Destiny's Child reunion. Overall, though, I was wholly underwhelmed by the halftime show.
As an Eagles fan, I have to say, "Go Eagles," and "Eagles Suck!"
And, I liked the Audi commercial the best of the first half, although I watch commercials with the sound off.
Kat Dennings' cleavage…oh my.
I'm not going to bash her because I couldn't do all that. She's a performer. Now back to the game.
I would've rather seen Janet's nipple.
Buck Naked. I have always loved that saying.
Lola- for sure she and JT turned the shit out that year. I watched live and couldn't believe my eyes!! That was less harsh then that fucking broke girls ad, that was gross.
I don't watch Two Broke Girls. Is there a reason the brunette wears that ugly lipstick all the time? It is horrible!
Puggle- I never saw her appeal other then large boobies. She must spend lots of time on the casting couch.
Not watching. I am disgusted with the part of American culture that thinks men who run and throw balls are worthy of respect and millions of dollars a year, but public school teachers can't get a respectable salary and professional consideration despite teaching millions of American children every day (and as a Kindergarten teacher, I promise I run and catch a lot of things every day…. with no pads)
OMG that was it… i'd rather rewatch the hot mess that was madonna last year, that was more entertaining… hehehe
I can't believe all that hype over that crap show.. its 1.30am in the UK not that i stayed up for this ( feeding my little one) but if i did i would be disappointed.
Best bit Destiny's child. thats it.
Beyonce "preformed" better while "pregnant" at Glastonbury and we all know she lip synced then used to love her now i kinda feel sorry for her
Wow! Right out of the gate in 11 seconds!
Back near the end of the first half when y'all were commenting as to whether ads were local or not here in LA we had a $cientology ad!!
I watched Autie Mame on TCM earlier, it just ended…that movie rocks. Love it every time I see it.
Ok, I am no Beyonce fan at all. But bitch can sing, she looked fabulous, and she can dance. Ugh, I can't believe I stuck up for that fake trick. Blerg.
Way to return a kick and make a record to boot!
Halftime show I would rate a B-….pretty 'eh…
I would love to see a band like the Foo Fighters have the opportunity to do the halftime show, I think they would kill it.
One of my all time favorite movies!
Beyonce was better than The Who, but that ain't saying much.
beyonce: fake hair, fake singing, fake pregnancy.
Smash,both of them are AMAZING performers. Together they were awesome. That and the U2 halftime (2002?) were a couple of my favorites.
@ Agent – I wouldn't dream of it!
If Jones doesn't get MVP, I will blame the Illuminati.
What's with the scanning the dark side? Did the lights go out or something?
Desperate Niner fan trips the lighting breakers at the Superdome….
Fucking loved Beyoncé.
Somebody n trouble!!
U2 halftime was my all-time favorite. I love them beyond reason.
Did the lights go out? That's what it looks like on our tv.
"Players are milling around…"
Cut to a Subway commercial about their 11" longs.
@kgirl, power went on half the dome.
Color this Saints fan not surprised.
Half Time was awful……..I know tomorrow they will be running each second of the tape to see what she did and din't do but the music wasn't good….But I would love those spandex sheer hose…
i blame the Kelly and Michelle for power outage – you know what you did girls – you outshone Beyowolf and she THREW you into the electrical panel
Madona hammered the last nail in her coffin last year with that crap. She was aweful. Beyonce has got pipes and she can belt it out. This was not that great.
All of the light all of the lights…. Kayne did some amazing things with his short film for dark fantasy. I liked it.
Ever go to one of Bud's balls?
@prolixe, I do to.
I want to start a bring back Janet campaign. She was wicked hot in the 90s.
HAHA! The extended Ironman 3 trailer.
So now they pull out every commercial that didn't actually pay for a spot?
I wonder if all Of Bey's lights had something to do with it.
Think of how much extra money CBS is gonna make in ad revenue from the delay.
@smash, I thought it was good too. As much as a doofus I think Kanye can be, he does some cool stuff, and a pretty good live show.
America: we can put on huge spectacles, yet we can't keep the lights on. How embarrassing.
Smash, I suspect (but don't know for sure) that there are ads that are guaranteed to be shown and then there are, "we'll try to get you on" ads…with ad time costing somewhat less.
I was pretty impressed with the halftime show, not with this power outage though, wtf NOLA?
BUT I did see Beyonce in person! Welll kind of. We saw her through the one window with no drapes closed in the house she was staying in. This was after we drove by several times trying to catch a glimpse, no sighting of Blue Ivy though
Smash, I blame Bey and her stupid lights. No one can tell me otherwise.
BEYONCE WAS AMAZING!!!
According to Clark Griswold, he was just testing his 2013 Christmas lights.
I guess we're over the Super Bowl brouhaha. We're on Animation Domination now.
Fsp- maybe they didn't check ALL the light bulbs.
My hubby just said everyone is going to blame B for the power outage. He doesn't do blogs at all but I laughed because he's probably so right.
and anyone who says any different was not watching the same show!!!! lol
I just got a picture in my mind of you driving around stalking Bey!! How did she look?
The CBS color guys are already blaming Beyonce for the power failure.
I love anything blamed on Beyonce. I guess I'm mean.
Power outage countdown clock! Hilarious.
I came to the blog for it. HI everyone!
Hahaha, Will Ferrell tweet:
Will ?@WillyFerrell*Kanye walks in and turns off the lights* "I'm sorry Baltimore, Ima let you finish but BEYONCE had the best performance of all time!"
Hee, now they're saying it was due to a failure of an "outside power feed." And I'm just imaging that desperate Niner fan skulking away with a giant pair of wire cutters.
This crap is eating up my DVR.
Beyonce was good. Not the best halftime but whatevs. I enjoyed the Destiny's Child reunion and whoever believed Michelle before when she LIED that there would be no reunion, you got Rick Rolled!
Please fix the lights already, this is getting ridiculous.
I didn't really have time to watch today. I taped it though so I can watch the parts I want to. My self-and-family-imposed holidays are pretty much over, so I have to get back to work …. I'm really looking forward to the Puppy and Kitten parts.
Ahh, it worked!
Laura, blurry! I was a little surprised that there weren't a bunch of other cars doing the same thing, but the house is in Old Metairie and I think a lot of people assumed she was staying downtown. Our friends we stayed with lived a few houses down on Iona so we didn't look toooo stalkerish with all the drive by's.
Can anyone translate that? Lol
B.Profane the CBS color guys? Color me confused
Best part of half time was Destiny's Child. Too bad their mics were turned down. Bey's ass shaking and hair flipping got old fast. What a slutfest. Wanted more singing and less pole dancing lap dancing moves.
Why do they always use dobermans to look viscous. I have a big red male dobe with his head on my lap. Fuck bud light.
Clam ad was a national one.
My favorite commercial was the M&M's. I love a good ballad.
@JSierra, color guys are the sports commentary guys.
Use the laces. Haha. They couldn't say laces out like I am sure they would have liked to.
The pistachio commercial is disturbing.
What was the clam ad?
Did anyone else have the Sciento ad?
My favorite commercials have been the Taco Bell, Jeep and the VW commercials have been my favorites so far.
That T shirt commercial with the guy doing the walk of shame was pretty funny too.
@jSierra the color guys give color commentary, or behind the scenes player information.
Thank You. Preach.
Wtf was that weak punt?
Now we've got a game!
If the 9ers come back to win, we will have to hear for weeks about the effect of the power outage and how it wasn't fair.
My highlights were 1) the commercial with the goat eating Doritos, and 2) the B-more defensive player who did a dance much like Beyonce when he sacked Kaepernick.
My favorite commercial.
Tears! Actual tears! I love horses.
That Bud Clydesdale commercial just made me cry too! I'm such a sap, I also have the flu so I dont need any extra fluids.
When I watched that this afternoon, I cried like a baby.
Clydesdale commercial got me.
Poor Laura! Don't cry! Whenever I am sick and cry I get a massive headache.
Whenever one of us go out of town we hide from the dogs in the yard. When they find us it is the most beautiful display of joy and happiness. That's what it reminded me of. Then I cried again!
Kickers have nice butts. It's almost a universal.
@greenmountaingal said: Anyone want to gossip about anything other than the game? Whatever is your fancy.
That Calvin Klein commercial was spectacular.Okay, so inside scoop gossip coming up…
@B. Profane said:I like the conceit of the Calvin Klein ad: 99% of the guys watching the game don't have the body to wear that underwear.
B. Profane! I’m interested in a later post or context to talk about your info on Los Angeles/North Korea etc. (wondering if there are good websites whatever to check – seriously wondering if I should spend more time in my house 60 miles outside of L.A. instead of my one in the TMZ).
So, in general “Hi” to everyone, I’ve been reading/lurking a long time – but only just started posting. I’ve been in “The Business” in multiple capacities my entire life (since a kid). I’ve been “above the line” and “below the line” on several levels. I’ll probably share more as time goes on…
But as an ex-male model (not that exciting or glamorous); but also more recently behind camera on lots of photography shoots…CK totally “enhances” 95% of their male models if you catch my drift. Totally not really what it is really. I think the idea to them is that they are just selling “sex” – so I’m not sure if their market is to women? Or gay men? Or guys who think that underwear will make them look better? None of those guys are packing as much as CK makes them appear to be.
Just for a correlation/inside scoop – if it’s underwear that is sold at J.C. Penny’s, or Sears, or something that is supposed to just be “normal guy” underwear – they actually choose models who don’t have a lot to show down there. They want “small” – because they don’t want to “offend” (in their words) Middle America. So they choose those guys, or make them “tuck it” slightly, to not be overtly sexual in any way. So they have a completely opposite viewpoint on their pictures and advertisements.
I know – TMI perhaps – but that’s how it works on sets.http://i46.tinypic.com/30shpc4.jpg
LIPA apparently handles the power at the super dome
Xander- noagendashow.com if you want politics.
I'd totally name a kid Leon Sandcastle!
The Niners are coming back! One touch down away! If Bewolf was the reason for the power outage, bless her entension headed soul! She gave my Niners the time they needed to come back. A replayed field goal? Unheard of! The Niners got one.
Ahh thanks guys, I'm in this for the commercials so I have no clue about any sports lingo, other than the obvious touchdown, first down, timeout, etc.
Hey there Xander, how disappointing about the enhacement! But I guess we can't have our cake and eat it too :/ I look forward to your insider stories, as I do with all our in the know readers. It's nice hearing actual experiences instead of relying solely on the blinds for for info.
Is anything good on TV tonight? Girls is being DVR'd but I couldn't think of anything else.
Please no Downtown Abbey suggestions, I am not quite ready for that relationship yet.
I took the Ravens too. After they beat my beloved Broncos and then blistered the Patriots, I knew they were gonna kick ass.
Nice! Go 49s!
Thanks Smash, I was not prepared to cry at the Superbowl commercials! And now they are playing the God made a farmer one. It is amazing the connection we can have with our animals.
Thank goodness the 9ers didn't get the conversion. The Ravens are killing me softly right now.
Hi @ Xander Dyle, and thanks for coming out of the lurker closet. That does make sense in regards to the underwear modeling. Catalog models tend to be more "average" than the fashion models, anyway, right? Or is that just how they are photographed?
Niners! I feel it! This team lives for this stuff. It kills me, but works for them.
@smashThanks. I will check that out. Mostly interested in what B. Profane was talking about earlier this week – so hopefully some of that info will be on there.
Laura- I saw this meme "I didn't want to have kids to I got my girlfriend two dogs". Truth.
Awww the Clydesdale commercial touched my heart. Best commercial ever.
I think the 49s really are making a good come back.
Hi.@kellylynn Sorry I am trying to read and post on my kindle now which takes forever.it is definitely on purpose.catalog models they do not want people to focus or be offended on too.much sexuality. Small is a bonus for those models to get booked.Ck and more fashion underwear they choose the.model for body fist, face second, then enhance.the package for selling the subconscious sec of it all.Cant update typo here it is supposed to.read body first
Has anyone watched Person of Interest? Is it any good?
B- what do you think of Apples stock price? For a company with so much income why is their stock taking a hit?
Smash, I'm obvs not B but I just read this earlier today…interesting view on why Apple's stock is suffering while Amazon's is thriving.
Fabulous call for the safety.
Thanks Lola!!!! Very interesting. We always talk about amazon and I agree they have a very niche market. Apple is used widely throughout the world. Everyone wishes they could have an apple product, I would love a new Mac book, even though I have a kick ass PC having a Mac is so much easier with my iPhone syncing. My bf thinks apples stock is high priced and that is what scares people into selling, it will always climb back. He thinks they need to do a stock split and lower the price. I think even if you did that it would climb again about the 200 mark. Sorry for my very off topic rant.
Holy pickle snatch, that was *too close*!
And that's how we do it! Yea, Ravens!
It was one if the better SB games! So close and when the brothers met up, that must be tough.
If I never see/hear that GoDaddy commercial again, it would be a blessing.
That commercial is really above and beyond gross.
I think conventional wisdom is that there is no reason that a stock split should generally heighten overall stock value since even if a lower share price brings in more small investors and makes the price bump up substantially, it is likely to be offset by a selloff by a large investor. Apple might be an exception in that regard since Apple buyers often have an emotional investment in the company that they don't have with other companies.
But that is my total armchair quarterbacking analysis since my investment knowledge is purely amateur.
Welcome! Thank you for the interesting insider info. I look forward to hearing more
Jsierra,Sunny, et al. Just got home from.Blanc Debris and traffic was excellent! The Opster just made a beer run and commented on how the game must now be over because there was no traffic when he walked across the street and now there is gridlock. I sumise from the last score we heard that the Ravens won? Sad day (eve) here in the bay area. I know there are a lot of posters here from my hood so to speak. Sorry kids.
Oh jeez, mow the sirens start. WTH. That happens when you live in the city. Miss the quier of the country already.
@SherrySorry, lady. I actually wanted the 49ers to come back (Sorry Dia!), so I was a little bummed. Off to get the kiddos in bed, but I wanted to say goodnight
I just Season 1 of Lost Girl on Blu-Ray…I don't watch football unless LSU is playing.
I am watching the engagement with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Renolds. It is super cheesy but cute.
Sherry indeed, the Ravens have proved victorious. But IMO you guys won the battle of locale if that makes it any better! No offense Baltimore. Enjoy your beer though, I am trying this weird new thing sobriety so drink up for me!
Smash TLC is running an American Gypsy Wedding marathon if you have never checked out that fine television specimen.
And Walking Dead marathon, season 1 episode 2 is on right now. I almost had a shit fit earlier when I thought the new episode was tonight and I had missed it.
I am totally all over this white trash gypsy shit! I ended up talking politics and the game with my grandma, now it's back to over the tops gorges (?)
Rumnies sorry!! Gorgies are regular peeps.
Dude has a tanning bed open next to a little child.Brilliant!
Sorry everyone…Cannot respond to anything now – oi!
I have a 2.5 year old and a beautiful wife who is 11.5 weeks pregnant who both woke up at the same time tonight so swamped taking care of both for the rest of the night.
Welcome, @Xander! And inside scoop is always welcome, no such thing as TMI!
This is like ghetto jersey shore bridezilla true life.

I've enjoyed all your input and comments. Speakingfor myself this site has brought much commaderie to us and a lot of joy to my world. Hugs to all.
Miss the comments of Old;ady and Yawnathon and all the unknowns and Anonymous Anna's.com
Thanks for the explanation @prolixe
Many thanks to all of you who've commented on the SB — It's expanded my 2013 SB experience in a great way!
Also, on a more dire note, any expansion on BP's comments re NK and its policies would be greatly appreciated.
And now it's time to move on to celebrating the impending Mardi Gras [and the following Ash Wednesday ].
Let the good times roll while they can!!!
I think they were running in four local markets. AT this point Davey's more interested in impressing the whales than any actual recruitment.
That was nice of you to put me in your list. I enjoy your posts too.
I had food poisoning yesterday, oh and no cable, we just watch netflix.
Those wishing to read deeper about the capabilities and threat potential of the North Korean nuclear weapons program should peruse Carey Sublette's once-definitive website (he's no longer updating it) www.nuclearweaponarchive.org and search for Carey's postings in the USENET group alt.war.nuclear.
(No, I'm not Carey.)
For recent analysis you kind of have to read around to less obvious sources. Read anything that Bruce Blair publishes or posts.
(BTW, it is wise of you folks in L.A. to be aware of the threat, but for the rest of us…hate to tell ya', but if the Norks popped a nuke over downtown L.A. it really wouldn't hurt the US all that much. Wipe out Hollywood, sure, but with some breaks on the fallout plume…sure, we'd get our hair mussed, but not fatally.)
(And if they dropped one on Microsoft's Redmond campus, well, that would be painful and possibly fatal for me, but they'd be doing the world a favor.)
Thanks dude. I will seriously look into this. Wondering if I should think about moving my family. Out of the TMZ at least.
Relax, Xander. The intelligence available through open sources indicates that the NK nuclear program is strictly a device for regime protection. Remember, NK senior leadership and SK senior leadership have been talking for years…it seems to be pretty well understood among the relevant players that their nukes are understandably intended as a tool for abeyance. All those silly-hat generals don't want to end up dying in cells like Milosevic for the wholesale slaughter they inflicted upon their own population, so they keep hoarding and furthering their nuclear program as insurance.
(Now, why SK political leadership has become relatively sanguine about the NK nuclear program…ah, there it gets a little interesting. But don't worry, that detente isn't aimed at us.)
Norks have no prompt-launch capability that could reach any part of United States territory. They couldn't hit us with a baseball. Neither does Iran, but the proliferation potential of their program….
Just a quick cameo to comment on the nuclear discussion going on.
1. Everyone should be a lot more concerned about Ahmadinejad(Iran)and his/their nuclear program than N. Korea for a few reasons. The most pressing being the mental instability of Ahmadinejad.
2. Attacking a country that has nukes with nukes is such a fucking bad idea because it turns into a retalitory situation that ends with the distruction of our civilization. Not that that is some big revelation, but when you are mentally unstable and don't give a shit, it's definately concerning.
3. If a nuke is sent to the USA from another country, it doesn't matter where it hits because its devastation knows no borders. Honestly, I'd rather be in the city it hits than a 1000 miles away because, from what I hear, radiation poisoning is a hell of a way to go.
Thanks B.When I was single I never worried.Now that I have a 2 year old, my mind goes places it's never been…You know, being responsible for another human being and all that.But I will chill. Thanks again for all of your info.Cheers.
I used to hang with Jim when played for the Bears. Very simple, yet complicated guy. Sure wish he would have won.
