I've never been more proud of my country.

No, wait.  That's not right.  What's the opposite of proud?

""The NFL has been thinking about the security of the Super Bowl since its very beginning, but particularly after 9/11,""

#$$#@ $#%$#$@ @# @##$%*(* 9/11! At this point it's used as a convenient excuse to enact measures even George Orwell couldn't have imagined. I fully understand it's a private venue and they can do whatever the hell they want concerning security measures. It's just tiring to see them use 9/11 as a catch all for doing anything in the name of security.

9/11 was over 12 years ago. So long ago that on that date, the remembrance seems to have died down. It seems like last year there really wasn't that big of a deal made about the lives lost. Might as well have been just another day.

At least the NFL has kept the Giants and Jets away from the game.

Are you not sports entertained and government-secured?
 
2014-01-02 06:25:15 PM
The NFL gets to put massive restrictions on what you can bring in, but I bet your cash and credit cards are most welcome.

Hell, like it's gonna matter.  Gonna be 12 below and blowing snow.  Even the turrst aren't that stupid.  Gonna be the worst Superb Owl ever.  EVAR.

Actually...  it's an event deemed to have national significance and, as a result, its security is overseen by the DHS.  Not that I'm trying to make you feel worse, just FYI.  :)

You can be proud... if you own stock in National Rent-a-fence.

Crap like that is why I will never go to a Super Bowl.

That, and the fact that I'm not rich.

This is what makes me feel almost positive the Seahawks are going to make it there. Make it to two Super Bowls; one in a snowstorm and the other in Detroit (Jerome Bettis is from there. Were you aware of that?)

If they'd host it in Omaha they wouldn't have to worry.

And then people said we should ban pressure cookers.

I'm just trying to imagine what two teams would make for the most Clownshoes snow game possible. Saints-Chargers?

/watch a high-pressure system or something settle in over Jersey that weekend, making it a chilly, but clear weather game.

...wow.  So, want to tell me how easy it is to have a security perimeter around a 26.2 mile course that goes through residential neighborhoods without it looking like the road to Cold War Berlin?

As a Bay Stater, I am absolutely, positively sick to death of hearing about the Marathon Bombings. I swear media types want to make it into Our Own Private 9/11 or some such shiat.  It's not.  Was it bad? Yes.  Was it traumatic? Yes.  But if you want to know what the world will think of it in even ten years, one only has to look some two hundred miles south-southwest of the Hub to figure it out.

The only way to beat domestic terror is to prove to them you can and will not change a goddamned thing because of their "great" statement.  I spent four years vacationing on 9/11 and proving that I'm better than those bastards who pulled it off.  I don't intend to let Patriot's Day have any less of a response.

And I respect this Reb.  However having said that, is any demonstration of security a bogus nod to terrorism?  I think not.  Granted, you can't cover 26 miles of road, but something like a SB demands vigilance and protection. To do anything less is stupid, near sighted and irresponsible.

Christo could have done it:

See?  This is why they don't allow tailgating and have the $70 shuttle bus service.

It's New York.  Who really cares?

It's going to be Pats v Packers, cold and snowy, painful to attend, but the best superb owl ever to watch on television.

Snuck into super bowl 20 in New Orleans. This would be a tough nut to cracking but it could be done.

Sure, but back then you're risking a trespassing charge. Now you're going to be considered a terrorist and shipped to Gitmo for the rest of your life.

I'm crossing my fingers for the cold and snowy part.  I hope it's the biggest blizzard in the NYC area since 1888's  Great Blizzard.

I love the 9/11 references.  As if they picked that day on purpose.

"Yes!  9/11!  A day that is very easily recited in press releases and news!  Better than 10/26 date our intern terrorist picked out!"

Isn't it actually a little self centered too to assume that they would attack on a day ONLY the U.S. considers important, the friggin Super Bowl?
