Only 13 hours away...

It may be the longest game of the year, thanks to the 1,232,433 commerical breaks. It may be a snooze-fest that's over before the end of the 3rd quarter. It is most likely between two teams that you have no real rooting interest for, unless you have money on the game (and who would do that, right?)

But it's the last time we'll see live, competitive American football that actually matters for at least seven months. And that is why Super Bowl Sunday is bittersweet for me, almost to a Hunter S. Thompson-level of malaise.

Enjoy, Farkers...see you in September.

Here's to TFer vicejay, whose work sent him to the Super Bowl...the bastard. If he can, he's supposed to be sending me some pics to post in thread later tonight.

On paper this has the potential to be an epic Super Bowl. It seems like these two teams have been on a collision course for several months. Let's get this started!

This may be the death of me.

normally, I hope for a good close game, but after constant bombardment of stupid "who dat" crap (stupidest phrase ever) and the whole "Because of Katrina" crap...I hope the Colts just embarrass the Saints.

Yeah, I picked up WWL last night and heard him report from Miami in the middle of election coverage. Closest I ever came to attending a Super Bowl was a LONG time ago. SB VIII was at Rice Stadium in Houston where I was a freshman at the time; could've gotten a gig selling beer or popcorn, some deal along those lines. Didn't do that, but we did manage to make off with 5 kegs of beer the night before the game. There was security but nothing remotely like they have these days, and kegs were stacked at the top of a wall on the north end of the stadium (which was dark).

WHO DAT WHO DAT WHO DAT you calling an idiot, idiot? Really, who could imagine a team's fans being excited about them being in the Super Bowl for the first time, even more so in light of that history (the city's recent history too; bonus "fark yourself" for whining about how tired you are of hearing about Katrina, like they're not tired of living with it?)? Where is this rule about "no smack talk" by first-timers? Anybody else know about that one?

And you think they should apologize for their culture while they're at it, just because you're butt-hurt about Minnesota losing in the conference championship game? Don't think so. Maybe you should skip the game and find a nice block of ice to sit on and try cooling your ass off a little.

I'm more excited for the real big game today: Canisius at Saint Peter's at noon! I love me some MAAC hoops! GO PEACOCKS!!!

I'm predicting a Colts win today, and this is the reason why:
i.cdn.turner.com
The Saints are going to have a tough time hitting Peyton, and roughing him up like they've done to Warner and Favre.
 
2010-02-07 08:08:36 AM
Colts by 12.

You heard it here first.
 
2010-02-07 08:16:47 AM
Take a farking pill Benway...I'm definately NOT a Viking's fan. Never really have been. Don't think that a person will follow the local team automatically. Lighten the hell up, Francis.

Katrina wasn't just this past year, or the year before...this would be like when the Giants went to the SuperBowl and all the talk was about 9/11 nonstop, as though they earned it, solely because of a disaster unrelated to the professional sport that is being played.
The "Who Dat" thing is something that does nothing but piss off non-fans of the team and is annoying, classless and does nothing but cause others to get more and more pissed off. Being obnoxious dickheads is not going to make anyone respect the fans and their team any more and would only hurt them both.

Once again...lighten up

I'm just glad the news media didn't get the chance to masturbate over Favre for the last two weeks.

Hey, did you hear that Dwight Freeney has a hurt ankle? Why isn't the media talking about it? That's a pretty big deal.

While 'Who Dat' can be annoying in large doses, you really need to calm down a bit. Honestly, the only place I'm seeing it a great deal is here on Fark (I don't live in Louisiana, thank God) but it's their big moment after 40yrs of less-than-mediocrity. Let them enjoy it.

You first. You don't really leave yourself a lot of room for lecturing. Or educating either, at least as far as the New Orleans area is concerned.

Is this another new rule I missed -- it's a person's prerogative to biatch and whine about crap here without the expectation of a possibly negative response from anyone? Dang, I am so out of the loop... where do I sign up for these memos?

Strictly on the QT, mind you, but my sources tell me that Peyton Manning is a good quarterback.

But you didn't hear that from me, okay?

I also heard, and I don't know if it's true, that New Orleans suffered some sort of natural disaster a few years back. Again, not sure if it is true.

America needs it's loveable losers, so let's all hope that the Saints stay the Aints.

Giving Manning two weeks to prepare for a game is the recipe for slaughter.

Yes, if you're lucky the game will start at 6:25 ET. By the time they get done with all the pregrame crap festivities, it almost always starts a few minutes late.

OK well I'm an idiot. I'm flying into Nashville this afternoon and we land at 4:45 ET. I thought I was missing the first 20 minutes but in fact, I'll be an hour and a half EARLY!
