Coach Bellichek, tell me a story...

Alright, go and get your playbook...

No, no, not one of those, tell me a *real* story!

A real story?

Yes! Tell me about when the Patriots weren't cheating farkers!

I don't know any stories like that.....

I was introduced to Manowar as a kid by my well-meaning but somewhat confused father. He's an old-school classic rock fan - Rush, Kansas, Styx, older Rolling Stones, KISS, AC/DC. Megadeth was a bit outside his comfort zone, let alone Helmet or Pantera.

So one day at work someone passes him a Manowar cassette tape. He glances at it, notes the cover art has kind of a hard fantasy motif, and brings it home to me. `You're still into that Dungeons and Dragons stuff, right?` Yeah, Dad. `Maybe you'll like this. It has a couple dragons on the front, right?` Right, Dad.

The tape? 1992's Triumph of Steel. I put it in my walkman and was treated to `Achilles - Agony and Ecstasy In Eight Parts.`

See my chariots run to your ships
I'll drive you back to the sea
You came here for gold - the wall will not hold
This day was promised to me
The gods are my shield, my fate has been sealed
Lightning and javelins fly
Soon many will fall, we are storming the wall
Stones fall like snow from the sky...


Thanks, Dad. I owe you one.

Newsletter?

Imma let you finish, but Prince had the single most badass halftime show in 2006. It absolutely floored me. I met him in person at a restaurant in the Quarter, and yes, he truly is that short. Even Darren Sproles is taller than him.

Word is they signed Susan Boyle to do the halftime show at the Puppy Bowl.

I don't understand why it always has to be come crappy pop star. How about a kick ass live action play or something. a UFC fight, or the fans have one large Royal Rumble. Or a select number of fans get to play a one full quarter football game. Or some f'n medieval times tournament or something! The superbowl halftime show shouldn't make me more disappointed with this country than I already am.

DeathByGeekSquad: AC/DC would absolutely destroy because people are so accustomed to listening to their songs at football games anyways...

Can you imagine how awesome it would be to be at the Super Bowl and have the entire Stadium chanting along with Thunderstruck? That would kick ass.

Throw this in, and they'll cancel all future halftime shows forever.

They wear jeans and leather, not cracker jack clothes.

Could be worse. Why don't they just make the halftime show every clip of the replacement referees botching a call?

At first I thought subby was trying to say "Man o' War" and was making fun of Madonna.

/Whether it's the racehorse or the jellyfish, either one is an apt comparison

Elandriel: This is basically what I came to biatch about. Whatever happened to the Superbowl putting on a big explosive show full of kick ass? Madonna, for chrissake.
