Soup Or BowlPosted: February 6, 2011
Once again, I am on call during the big game.
No party for me, so I’m going to try the live blog thing I did during jury duty a couple weeks ago.
Starting at 6:30-ish (eastern) come on by and we’ll talk about whats going on with the game and the commercials….unless you’re at a party, because that wouldn’t be cool
6:30…Could it take longer to flip a coin?
6:37 – Steelers 3 and out. Good. Normally I’d pull for them, but that whole rape thing, I’m sort of against it.
6;43 – First commercials!
Bud Light Commercial…hack job, not funny…Doritos with the dog, kinda funny. Audi, you gotta love that Kenny G doesnt take himself seriously.
Steelers dont score again. Digging it
6:50 Commercials – Doritos…he sucked his finger?!?! Pepsi max…come on..nail the girl in the head with a can and run?
6;53 . This is looking like a tough game. Might be worth staying awake for the whole thing.
6:55 Packers Driving!
6:58 – Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz. Its hard to care
7:01 Packers TD! Jordy Nelson missed an easier catch earlier, makes a hard one look easy. Digging it.
7:02 – No one but Doritos and Pepsi are advertising.
7;04 – Movie ad…Cowboys and Aliens. Serious?
7:07 – Interception for a TD, Packers! I am in favor of that sort of thing.
7:09 – Eminem. I like that you dont do commercials. Keep not doing them.
7:12 – 7 second delay didnt work – “get that dumb ass…”
7:14 – I wish I’d named my son Flozell. What was I thinking?
7:16 – Reply all email ad was pretty funny. Funnier than when I did it. Oh God, Joan Rivers…dry heaves.
Second Quarter starts with Green Bay up 14.
7:23 – Pittsburgh field goal….14-3 . I’ll take that.
Budweiser Tiny Dancer Commercial…nice!!
7:25 – John Travolta and Ron Howard are both there. I think my position on this is clear.
7:33 – VW, Darth Vader commercial, best one yet.
7:38 – Steelers are driving. Bleah.
7:42 – Interception by Green Bay.
7:43 – Dom Capers, Green Bay Defensive coordinator didn’t have much hair when he was coaching here in Charlotte. Now he has a lot of hair. Does he think we wont notice. Come on Dom, age like wine.
7:45..TD Green Bay!!!
7:49 – Nice Catch Randle-El for Pittsburgh.
Unfortunate line of the night – Troy Aikman refers to Ben Rothlesburger “getting it up”. Oops. That was the problem, wasnt it?
7:57 – Touchdown Pittsburgh. Auuugh. 21-10 Green Bay
8:00 – Halftime. I think The Black Eyed Peas are playing. They mentioned it once. Time to go make popcorn.
Back for the 3rd quarter.
Halftime – James Taylor and Carole King on PBS. Defund PBS? Don’t you dare.
Got a text from my son, Flozelle, at a Super Bowl Party on campus. A photo of a 5 gallon carton of Chancellor’s Choice Ice Cream from the NC State Campus Dairy. Two thoughts – glad he is happy. Times have changed since I was in school.
8:42…Pittsburgh touchdown, 21-17, Green Bay. That was too easy.
Commercial for Pirates Of The Caribbean 28. How many more can they do?
8:49 – Green Bay. Have to catch the ball, right?
8:55 – Face mask…where’s the flag?!
9:00 – Steelers miss a 52 yard field goal attempt. It wasn’t even in the same time zone. Heh heh…excellent.
9:05 – Can we not hear about Glee anymore today? Please?
9:20 – not looking good
9:23 – On the plus side, I haven’t been called in to work….Steelers fumble, Packers recover!!
9:28 – Packers driving….auugh a drop!
9:31 – Touchdown!! Packers have a little cushion with 12 minutes left.
Was that a referee with glasses on in the replay? Yeah, I’ve got glasses too, but I am not a referee.
9:37 – Kevin Greene LB coach in Green Bay. Miss him in Charlotte.
9:40 – Holding penalty on Flozelle Adams. That is not the Flozelle that is my son.
9:43 – Auuugh Pittsburgh TD and 2 point conversion. They’re only three behind.
9:52 – Are the Packers hanging by a thread or burning off the clock? Or killing me?
9:55 – Packers lining up a field goal….good. Two minutes left, 6 point lead. Pittsburgh has one shot, touchdown or go home.
9:59 – Was that an Atari Bigby sighting?
No, apparently we are not allowed to stop hearing about Glee. Damn.
10:00 – Incomplete!!!!! Green Bay’s ball, fifty seconds left. Game over!!
