My favorite thing to do during Super Bowl celebrations is watch when the cameramen switch off of the happy, jumping, shouting victorious team and focuses instead on the forlorn, agonized, deflated losing team. I like to see the sadness, not because I’m an awful person with an overheightened sense of Schadenfreude, but because I like to see the instant, raw reaction from these gladiators. It makes them more human.
Okay, maybe just a liiiiittle schadenfreude
Mostly I was looking to see how Marshawn Lynch reacted to the loss. Not because he was supposed to get the ball (although he was); but I wanted to see if Lynch realized what we all in the media knew from the start.
This loss is on him for not talking during media day. Continue reading
“In your face, Wilson” – God
You peer over your laptop at the last few guests left at the Super Bowl party.
“Well, that was a fun season,” you overheard someone say, as they packed up their chips and dip.
“Was?” you ask.
“Well yeah, it’s over.”
“IT’S NEVER OVER!” you scream, and turn your laptop towards the frightened guests.

“IT’S THE NAMES AND MEASUREABLES OF EVERYONE THAT WILL BE AT THE COMBINE! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! IT NEVER ENDS! PRAISE BE TO GOODELL!”
“I THINK THE BENGALS ARE GOING TO GO LINEBACKER IN THE FOURTH ROUND!”

This is Monday Morning Jerkface. Continue reading

Okay, guys. The Super Bowl is in 5 days. It’s time to talk about the game, man. No more energy wasted on this stupid scandal about footballs and air pressure and evil empires. It’s about Seattle and New England, man. Wilson and Brady. Belichick and Carroll. (Nevermind, scratch that “no evil” thing.)
“Good. Good. The Force is strong with you. A powerful Sith you will become.”
Let’s try to look at the actual upcoming game without worrying about all that nonsense that has dominated the airwaves since two Sundays ago. Continue reading
Sorry for the lack of activity. I was waiting for someone to say something stupid.
