  4. JMB says:

    Puppy Bowl!

  5. JMB says:

    I still wish Seattle had made it.

    This match-up stinks.

    I gotta cheer for the 9ers to catch the Steelers @6 Lombardi’s — stupid Ravens.

  6. Bizrow says:

    Well, had as much success as Pedro on his 4K days on the Pens blog

    I just can’t cheer for Baltimore

    Or a Harbaugh

    Not going to be a fun game at the Bizrow house

  7. bpn8pitt says:

    As Dejan said the other day, if this turns into a streetfight, the Ravens have a good chance. If the 49ers can get up early, force Flacco into some mistakes, they’ll take it. As in a lot of Super Bowls, special teams could be the difference. The Return game will be one to watch. Also, the kicking game. The Ravens have a rookie, Tucker, who has played well. The Niners have David Akers who is 29/42 on the year and has been shaky beyond 40.

  8. Eric Bowser says:

    No money on this game… no interest in watching it really because of Harbaugh Bowl aspect to it and let me be frank, the fake Ray Lewis.

    But I’ll watch the game because what else is going to be on from 6:30-10:00?

    Don’t care about the 6 Super Bowls…

    49ers – 27
    Ravens – 13

  9. Eric Bowser says:

    hit submit button too soon….

    I’m heading to the kitchen to make chicken wings…

  10. LuckyNKentucky says:

    The Steelers will win more. Let ‘em have number 6.

  11. Patrick(RI) says:

    Just saw the play of the day! Big dump on the goal line, “he left it all on the field,” as the announcer later said, during Puppy Bowl IX.

  12. 21sthebest says:

    Love Super Bowl Sunday! I always feel like today is a National holiday from the time I wake up. I also love the Harbaugh story quite frankly. Really happy for their parents.

  13. Drew71 says:


    I just cannot pull for…for…for…them.

    I guess I’ll just root for overtime.

  14. Drew71 says:


  15. JD says:

    I hope Ray Lewis dislocates his weiner during his pre game “Look at me, I love Jesus” dance.

  16. Arriba Wilver says:

    Now that’s hate.

  17. LuckyNKentucky says:

    The father is totally different than the sons. He coached here at Western Kentucky and won a National Championship in the old 1-AA. Everyone liked him and he did a good interview. Not the brash, cockiness of the lads at all.

  18. Drew71 says:

    Yes, I believe it is.

    But he has a lovely avatar, don’t you think?

  19. LuckyNKentucky says:

    And nice teeth.

  20. JD says:

    Lucky – should someone in KY be commenting on teeth?

    Just kidding. Enjoy the game!

  21. LuckyNKentucky says:

    Ha! Good one, JD. They invented the tooth brush here because everyone only has one tooth.

  22. JD says:

    That’s a good one. I could care less about the game. Plus, I hit the cocktails early. I apologize in advance for any posts that offend someone.

  23. 21sthebest says:

    He’s reportedly not doing the dance.

  24. Drew71 says:

    Round One Party Food

    Cooked or made:
    – Two guacamoles, one spicy, one mild
    – Greek salad over potato salad, homemade dressing
    – Hungarian Wax (hot banana) peppers sauteed in oil
    – Sauteed onion in unsalted butter and just a bit of brown sugar to cut the edge
    – Fried cheese (three cheeses)
    – Artichoke Wellington

    – Roasted garlic hummus
    – Four varieties of cured green and brown olives
    – Tzatziki (Greek yogurt, garlic and cucumber dip)
    – Seafood cheese spread

    This is a little light for me. Normally I like to cook a feast over the two days leading up, but too much travel lately. But still. My wife asked if she could help with the cooking today. I told her to get out of my kitchen before she blows it up.

    Surprised she knew where to find it in the first place.

  25. Drew71 says:


  26. 21sthebest says:

    We made chili.

  27. Bizrow says:

    My 10 month old dachsy, Abby, does that most every morning

  28. JohninOshkosh says:

    Is this where we can talk about the India-Pakistan Cricket match?

  29. Bizrow says:

    Like +1, their mom seems pretty cool too

    What is it with brothers that coach

    Meanwhile, Rob Ryan remains on the five minute watch

  30. Bizrow says:

    Steak on the grill and roasted potatos and carrots

    Yes, you can grill in a snowstorm

    What he heck is hummis???

  31. Bizrow says:

    Did you folks watch the Pens game? Mike Emerick, a huge PBC fan, said something about the Burgh being fired up with the Pens and on a high, until baseball season starts

    Not sure exactly what was said, wasn’t paying total attention, but I think there was a slight sigh with the reference to the PBC

  32. JohninOshkosh says:

    The NFL gets criticized a lot, but they sure as hell got America the Beautiful right. Nicely done.

  33. 21sthebest says:

    Weather never stops us from grilling Biz.

  34. Drew71 says:

    I’d “like” the post, except nobody watches that.

  35. Drew71 says:

    Nice. And no. Weather doesn’t stop us, either.

    For clarification, the grilled and roasted meal sounds great.

  36. TJ says:

    I refused to turn the game on until 6:32 to make sure I didn’t get caught up in the pregame ray show. I absolutely hate this superbowl and to make matters worse I have to listen to Phil Simms. Can’t CBS come up with someone better than Simms?

  37. JohnH says:

    What time does the game start? Kidding

  38. JohnH says:

    I almost got a tear in my eye. was a very nice touch

  39. TJ says:

    Smith attacked the football — first of many great comments coming from Simms today.

  40. Bizrow says:


  41. Patrick(RI) says:

    3 beagles, 2 of which thinks the are treats. We recycle, too.

  42. JohnH says:

    I watch it all the time. trying to figure out who the Pirates will sign out of the league.

  43. TJ says:

    “There was no one open” — really Phil? Thats why Flacco ran around and then threw it away?

  44. cherokee23 says:

    Nice catch by Boldin….but wasn’t Kiesel flagged for going to his knee in celebration….I know they would never make that call in this game, but just sayin!

  45. TJ says:

    Kid in the Audi commercial kind of looked like Sid

  46. pattonbb says:

    Rat Birds made that look pretty easy.

  47. TJ says:

    You can go to your knee in celebration if its to pray. Swear to god its true

  48. Patrick(RI) says:

    With Simms, it is not just the commentary. Delivery is truly annoying.

  49. TJ says:

    God I wish I was Walter

  50. JohninOshkosh says:

    Corinne Bohrer sighting in the Audi Ad in first package of ads!

  51. 21sthebest says:

    Is anyone looking out for Pirates press releases during the game?

  52. Milo Hamilton says:

    Am I the only person in America that doesn’t care about the commercials ? Not criticizing those of you who do, just wondering.

  53. pattonbb says:


  54. 21sthebest says:

    No you’re not Milo. I’ve always despised commercials.

  55. Thundercrack says:


  56. TJ says:

    Lewis is starting to have a Te’o like performance… Maybe we will find out after the game that the relationship he’s had with “God” has been a hoax all along!

  57. JohnH says:

    I was honestly thinking about that today. They have the worst strategy on press releases. What do you think they would announce positive or negative?

  58. TJ says:

    95% of the commercials suck but the other 5% might be better than some of the programming on other channels tonight

  59. JohnH says:

    I heard clint eastwood was going to interview Te’o girl friend. Still got the chair from the Obama interview

  60. JohninOshkosh says:

    Amy Poehler cashes in.

  61. cherokee23 says:

    I thought that’s what they wanted to prevent. Heard something to the effect of that’s why Tebow would do it on the sidelines, not the field. I could be wrong!

  62. TJ says:

    Reed was galloping across the field to the locker room like a deer

  63. Drew71 says:

    How could we tell the difference?

  64. MadTurk says:

    Arriba I caught up with UglyKen, he is fine and said to say hello to all the old time bloggers. He quite blogging when the other site went pay and has not come over to the even darker side. He said he may stop in and say hello some time.

  65. JohnH says:

    Are there really people that eat oreo’s for the cookie? I would eat quadruple stuff. Actually I take 2 double stuff and make that. I could eat it out of a jar

  66. JohnH says:

    I watch it for the commercials. Sorry

  67. Thundercrack says:

    NH gets a 5 year extension.

  68. JohnH says:

    I go with the pocket test. anything that puts money in nuttings pocket is bad news. anything that takes money out of his pocket is good.

  69. pattonbb says:

    They have to start throwing some flags, don’t they?

  70. Thundercrack says:

    Maybe there should be a separate thread for the commercials. It might get more comments than the game.

    And it would get more comments than the Pirate had in the past 2 weeks

  71. JohnH says:

    I think NH leaving pirates to train navy seals would be better

  72. 21sthebest says:


  73. TJ says:

    The Fast and Furious movies are like Brett Favre come backs. Happen every year and they keep getting worse

  74. 21sthebest says:

    The Bar Rafeali commercial was disgusting but she is Israeli!

  75. Bizrow says:

    Lets focus on the true disease

    Slick Frank

    He and Neal are secretly brothers, aka Danny DiVito and Arnold

  76. LuckyNKentucky says:

    Commercials have been bad. Except for the Doritos goat one.

  77. Milo Hamilton says:

    This is actually an encouraging start for San Francisco. Much better than their starts the last 2 games.

  78. Bizrow says:

    They, the BMTIB, have the worst strategy on any PR issue

  79. TJ says:

    Wasn’t disgusting for Walter

  80. pattonbb says:

    great point, Milo. Not sure if San Fran knows how to play when they’re not down by 14 in the 2nd.

  81. Milo Hamilton says:

    Ray Ray can’t cover Vernon Davis one on one. Maybe God can help.

  82. JohnH says:

    they are even bringing back characters that were supposedly dead. like his career

  83. Bizrow says:

    I’m going with heart, soul and character

    Don’t know if SF has it

    But I know Ray Lewis doesn’t

    Big turnover there

  84. pattonbb says:


    Nance and Simms are having a terrible game, by the way.

  85. TJ says:

    Its actually funny to see the other Ravens come over to protect Ray Ray when he gets burned and Davis gets up talking trash

  86. Bizrow says:

    Or Ray moght grow antlers

    A Rudolph thing

  87. 21sthebest says:

    What else is new?

  88. Thundercrack says:

    Giving hope to nerds everywhere

  89. TJ says:

    These 2 should never be allowed to do a Super bowl. Absolutely horrible. HORRIBLE.

  90. Officer Mancuso says:


  91. TJ says:

    Hard to believe the Ravens would be sitting at home right now if someone knew how to play defense instead of looking like a deer in headlights. Going to use deer as much as I can

  92. JohninOshkosh says:

    Has there been an ad for the Masters yet? C’mon CBS. You usually saturate these events with “a tradition unlike any other.”

    Butters Nantz’ bread.

  93. MadTurk says:

    Is the game over yet? there is a new Elementary on after the game.

  94. Eric Bowser says:

    now the 49ers can start to play

  95. TJ says:

    Leave it to the Ravens to be involved in a disgrace to the Super Bowl with that crap they just pulled. Arrogant jerks. Officials just made a bigger disgrace by calling off setting penalties.

  96. 21sthebest says:

    Where is Drew?

  97. TJ says:

    Nice Job of 29 Williams throwing punches on the pile. Glad he got blasted by the lineman

  98. Eric Bowser says:

    cannot stand that stuff…. nothing professional about it

  99. Officer Mancuso says:

    Ed Reed’s looking almost as good as Tyler Palko’s backup.

  100. JohninOshkosh says:

    I’m pathetic. Will go see any movie that has “Star Trek” in the title.

  101. TJ says:

    Phill Simms is capable of knowing what a player feels. That is impressive

  102. Eric Bowser says:

    that movie looks better than any other Star Trek… admittedly, I think I’ve seen 1 or 2 tv shows and maybe 1 of the movies.

  103. pattonbb says:

    Teams tend to take on the personality of their coaches.

  104. Milo Hamilton says:

    This is fixin’ to get ugly.

  105. pattonbb says:

    HA HA HA HA!!!!!!

  106. Milo Hamilton says:

    For some coaches, 2 weeks is too long to prepare.

  107. JohninOshkosh says:

    What a bunch of thugs. Who goes looking for fights in the Super Bowl?

  108. TJ says:

    Nice call by the Ravens. Nearly got their kicker killed. He took a pretty good shot. Gutsy call.

  109. JohninOshkosh says:

    Did not get the first down but friggin love a fake field goal call in the Super Bowl!

  110. JohnH says:

    That coke commercial needed a toll booth. like in blazing saddles

  111. LuckyNKentucky says:

    Great movie. “Go back and get a _____load of dimes”.

  112. TJ says:

    What is Flacco raising his arms for? If anything it was offensive pass interference. These guys want flags on every pass play if its not caught.

  113. Milo Hamilton says:

    LePetomaine Thruway ?

  114. Pat4Pgh says:

    OMG, nearly forgot how much I hate anything involving the Ravens. Their thuggery is so outlandish an dignored by the refs due to Goodell’s mancrush on Ray Ray.

    Nance is bad, but Simms is borderline repulsive…..

  115. pattonbb says:

    It certainly looked like offensive pass interference.

  116. TJ says:

    I thought the 49ers were in the superbowl not the Broncos

  117. Eric Bowser says:

    I think Dejan nailed this one… Ravens were battle tested for a fight

    49ers are imploding

  118. Milo Hamilton says:

    Hey, an old fashioned 80’s & 90’s Super Bowl !

  119. Eric Bowser says:

    was just thinking that

  120. JohnH says:

    Trivia time. if the niners win it would mark the 14th time a city or metropolitan area has served as the home of title-winning teams in two of the four major professional sports in the same season. What are the other 13? btw i do not know the answer

  121. TJ says:

    Its funny how Goodell wants to make the game safer but he glorifies Ray Lewis. The man that once said in SI that he was hoping to kill Mendenhall when he hit him

  122. Bizrow says:

    Or Buffalo

  123. 21sthebest says:

    I hope the Penguins don’t.

  124. Thundercrack says:

    The tackling in the NFL is absolutely horrible. Just a bunch of missed tackles or players launching themselves leading with their helmet

  125. Eric Bowser says:

    based on first half, Flacco has Super Bowl MVP

  126. JohnH says:

    Rock Ridge Turnpike?

  127. TJ says:

    Going to go with the following 3 for sure

    New York

  128. TJ says:

    Guess Nance forgot about the gift the officials gave the Ravens with off setting penalties. Ngata’s late hit was not the first penalty against the Ravens

  129. Thundercrack says:

    Is it too late to ask CBS to put 60 Minutes on?

  130. JohninOshkosh says:

    Happiest man in the room? Joe Flacco’s agent.

  131. 20 Years and Counting says:

    World’s Strongest Man On ESPN is looking mighty good right now.

  132. TJ says:

    WTF was Kaepernick doing? Freaking rookie mistake.

  133. Pat4Pgh says:

    Like +7

    What a time to be looking at free agency……

  134. Eric Bowser says:

    I saw a nice segment earlier today interviewing Robert De Niro, it was pretty good.

  135. TJ says:

    HAH. Gift sack for Ray Lewis.

  136. JohnH says:

    I was reading an article about the giants(mlb) hoping the niners win and the article stated that stat. probably could go with different years so pittsburgh could be listed several times

  137. Eric Bowser says:

    he’s playing worse than Big Ben in Super Bowl 40

  138. 21sthebest says:

    What was that second down play???

  139. TJ says:

    I wouldn’t go that far. He’s at least completed some passes.

  140. TJ says:

    For those looking for an alternative “Anchorman” is on Cinemax.

  141. pattonbb says:

    What? And miss Beyonce? Maybe they’ll be a Destiny’s Child reunion.

    Just shoot me now.

  142. TJ says:

    She singing live or lip syncing?

  143. Jandy says:

    I freakin can’t stand Joe Flacco >:/

  144. JohnH says:

    think live

  145. Milo Hamilton says:

    Nice weekend for the Pens.

  146. Jandy says:

    H^ll yeah!!! =)

  147. Bizrow says:

    Lke + 1

  148. Drew71 says:

    Never heard of these songs.

    I’ve heard of Beyonce.

    She was that actress in Austin Powers 3, right?

  149. Jandy says:

    And Drew shows up with a Zinger

  150. Milo Hamilton says:

    I thought Ray Lewis was Destiny’s Child.

  151. Bizrow says:

    Well, no formal announcement yet that Opie has a 5 year extension

    Nor Slick Frank

    Thats all the good I can see tonight so far

    Pens won an exception to that

  152. Drew71 says:

    Britney for 2014.

    Just to p*** me off.

  153. Bizrow says:

    He will tell us so if the game continues on the same vein

  154. Jandy says:

    YES! Pens beat the Craps ;)

  155. Jandy says:

    You’re on a roll, Drewster

  156. Bizrow says:

    No, how about Slick Franks daughter?

    No offense to her

    Or Ray Lewis with gospel songs?

  157. Drew71 says:

    or how bout American Idol auditions?

  158. Bizrow says:

    She is beyonce my understanding of what talent is

  159. Bizrow says:

    Like, more than 1

  160. Bizrow says:

    Maybe God is teasing Ray-Ray

    You were 30 minutes close di%kweed

    We can hope

    My name is Biz and I’ve been a Pirates fan for the past 20 years + many more

  161. Drew71 says:

    I didn’t think it was possible.

    Halftime was more dull than the first half.

  162. Drew71 says:

    what’s a dilkweed?

    is it a type of hummus?

  163. Jandy says:

    You’re just mad because she didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction ;)

  164. Jandy says:

    OMG! You guys are killing me

  165. Drew71 says:

    i woulda missed it. was napping.

  166. Eric Bowser says:

    welp… that should do it…


    109 yd TD by Jones…. game over

  167. Jandy says:

    I thought two teams were supposed to be playing in the Super Bowl?

    Downton Abbey on PBS cannot start soon enough for me; I must have been very bad recently to be punished like this…….

  169. Jandy says:

    lol and you woke up cranky ;)

  170. Jandy says:

    I’d say you’re right

  171. Milo Hamilton says:

    Deep down, Alex Smith has to be loving this.

  172. Drew71 says:

    Finally. Some excitement.

  173. Jandy says:

    someone forgot to pay the light bill

  174. Eric Bowser says:

    Where’s the white suit????????????

  175. Milo Hamilton says:

    What a dump.

  176. Eric Bowser says:

    nah, booty time just used it all up.

  177. Anybody notice the 49er being held by not one but two Ravens on that return? Worst officiating of a Super Bowl. These guys have sucked most of the game. Missed a clear Offensive pass interference earlier by the Ravens, and never tossed the Ravens’ Williams for shoving a referee out of his way.

  178. Eric Bowser says:

    Yeah, you would think the NFL would help the city of New Orleans build a new one.

  179. Milo Hamilton says:

    So we’re not all the way back from Katrina then ?

  180. Eric Bowser says:

    Officiating has been terrible, no doubt about it.

  181. They should have bulldozed it after Katrina and started over with an outdoor stadium.

  182. 21sthebest says:

    No problem. Obama probably has an entitlement program to cover it.

  183. Drew71 says:

    Can a building have a wardrobe malfunction?

  184. Bizrow says:

    Dickweed = ,well where do I start??

  185. You know how Tim Brown said earlier this year that his head coach threw the Super Bowl they were in? Well, any thoughts that John H. has an agreement with bro Jim H. to have his 49ers lay down so that Ray-Ray can get his retirement ring? Just sayin’.

  186. Milo Hamilton says:

    New Orleans says, “Take that Roger Goodell”.

  187. Bizrow says:

    This is stupid, I’m sure

    Maybe God is saying, Ray-Ray

    I don’t like you speaking for me

    Just sayin

  188. Ghost says:

    Shades of when the transformer (mysteriously?) blew at halftime two years ago at Candlestick Park when everyone figured Big Ben had taken a needle and that it’s effectiveness would be wearing off by the minute. On the heels of Jacoby Jones’ kickoff return for a TD and then the Kaepernick sack, this power outage can only help the 49’ers regroup and the Ravens cool off.
    A bit conspiratorial, I know. But I wouldn’t put such a plot past Bill Belichick. Jim Harbaugh is a creep too. It only takes one inturn to find the main disconnect box and sabotage something.

  189. Bizrow says:


    What the heck is hummis??

  190. Milo Hamilton says:

    Forget Steve Tasker, where’s John Sutcliffe ?

  191. Drew71 says:

    Forget John Sutcliffe, where’s Erin Andrews?

  192. TJ says:

    The coverage of this by CBS is brutal. How does Solomon Wilcots and Steve Tasker get sideline duties on this? Absolutely brutal.

  193. TJ says:

    Shannon Sharpe is an idiot

  194. Jandy says:

    love it lol

  195. Bizrow says:

    I see Ray Lewis warming up, genuflecting and catching a football

    The whole dam thing is interesting

    Why would God to this to Ray???

  196. Drew71 says:

    You see Kaepernick walking around looking, I dunno, not right?

    Lights out in more ways than one.

  197. Eric Bowser says:

    Is this when Sting comes out of the rafters in the Super Dome and zip lines down onto the field?

  198. Drew71 says:

    How bout Cowher calling for Alex Smith?

    I don’t think I’d do it, but credit to him for the chutzpah to put that out there.

    (Chutzpah is yiddish for yinzer)

  199. Eric Bowser says:

    Is this when Morgan Freeman comes out wearing the white suit?

  200. Drew71 says:

    They better get this going or all their PEDs will wear off.

  201. Milo Hamilton says:

    Post of the day !

  202. TJ says:

    So the Ravens according to Sharpe planned on taking Crabtree out of the equation…. Is that possibly the reason Davis has caught some big passes? I mean seriously Sharpe is just too much of a homer.

    The league is not ready to make a statement? Who cares. Its the freaking power. I wish someone would cut the power to Wilcots mic. God almighty who runs CBS Sports?

  203. 21sthebest says:

    The one good thing about the power outage is we’re getting some crack reporting!

  204. JohninOshkosh says:

    Forget Erin Andrews. Where is Lacee Collins and Kristy Robinson?

  205. Ghost says:

    Only two power outages during an NFL game that I can think of, and both came at moments advantageous to this 49er team… (though unbeknown to everybody at the time, Ben had not taken a needle, after all.)

  206. TJ says:

    Nah Deer prefer the night time.

  207. Drew71 says:

    honest to pete, so far this is the most interesting part of the game.

  208. Milo Hamilton says:

    I really do hope this was sabotage. That would be awesome.

  209. Eric Bowser says:

    This power outage is the gift that keeps giving….

  210. Bizrow says:

    This is scary, thought about that as well

  211. TJ says:

    Where is Myron Cope when you need him

  212. TJ says:

    How can you sabotage something that was already terrible? I applaud the person if it was an attempt at sabotage!!!!

  213. Drew71 says:

    What network has the Puppy Bowl?

  214. TJ says:

    Jeezus the Ravens really do take on the mentality of their coach. Can someone cry over the power coming back on?

  215. pattonbb says:

    Amen. That place was a dump pre-Katrina and hasn’t gotten much better, regardless to how much cash Mercedes is spending on it.

  216. Bizrow says:

    I read Bob Nutting just got a contract a few weeks ago to supply power to the Superdome?

    Slick Frank got lost on Bourbon Street

    Neal responded, but folks are still interpreting what he said

  217. Bizrow says:

    Like +3

  218. Ghost says:

    It was hardly terrible if you’re a Raven. Now, I don’t know…

  219. 21sthebest says:

    Uhmmm, Animal Planet.

  220. Drew71 says:

    So. You speak Yiddish, too.

  221. TJ says:

    Let me get this right….

    The 49ers have to have their defense come up with some 3 and outs or turnovers in order to help their offense?

    Can someone clarify that for me? I’m confused with all these exciting replays of the power going out.

  222. Milo Hamilton says:

    The NFL would like to thank Head of Security Frank Drebbin for quickly restoring order.

  223. Ghost says:

    Yeah! Pirates talk.
    But you did forget to mention what Kyle Stark is up to. Best line to answer this gets some hippie beads.

  224. Bizrow says:

    Only a Harbaugh Superbowl

  225. TJ says:

    I would rather just see the Harbaugh’s fight it out. Of course the ravens would cry over the game being held up because the 49ers not having power to their communications

  226. Milo Hamilton says:

    I’m suprised both starters are coming back out.

  227. Drew71 says:

    Ok. Back to sleep now.

  228. pattonbb says:

    People at the game are tweeting about a strong smell of gas inside the Superdome. Hope it’s some kind of joke.

  229. TJ says:

    I’m sure it does smell like gas… this game STINKS!!!

  230. Bizrow says:

    He should be listed in our Hall of Fame

  231. Drew71 says:

    it’s just our poodle. she does that.

  232. JohninOshkosh says:

    For all you masochists out there. MLB radio on XM is playing the Braves radio feed of Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS.

  233. TJ says:

    Ravens players visibly upset after learing the winner of the “coke” actually wins a can of coca-cola.

  234. Milo Hamilton says:

    Alex Smith was seen texting Cam Cameron during the delay.

  235. Bizrow says:

    I like that

  236. Bizrow says:

    Don’t sleep with a dachsy by your head

  237. Bizrow says:

    Any news on Rob Ryan?

    Anyone up to starting a fund for him?

  238. TJ says:

    Let me get this right….

    Simms just said just go out there and call a play and run it? A rookie QB versus the Ravens and you want him to just go out and call a play on his own and run it? In the super bowl? Brilliant.

  239. Jandy says:

    touchdown 49ers…about time

  240. Jandy says:

    touchdown 49ers about time

  241. Drew71 says:

    So. Companies pay like a gabillion dollars for these commercials, right?

  242. Milo Hamilton says:

    McMahon & Tate.

  243. Drew71 says:

    No. He was texting Erin Andrews.

    (Wouldn’t you?)

  244. TJ says:

    Gangnam dance had to show up in at least one commercial right?

    Don’t know if anyone saw it or not but they actually had a PGA golfer do it after the 16th hole yesterday. Did the hole dance. Not to mention the addition of the caddy races on the 16th hole. That was more interesting to watch than the super bowl so far

  245. TJ says:

    I thought the deer spray commercial was great.

  246. JohninOshkosh says:

    Gotta put the kids to sleep. Merry Super Bowl to all and to all a good night!

  247. Bizrow says:

    The fat lady has not cleared her throat yet

  248. Drew71 says:

    i see that light thingee worked again

  249. TJ says:

    Hello momentum

  250. Eric Bowser says:

    take it back… this game is about to turn big time

  251. Bizrow says:

    Good tidings to you and yours, John

  252. Jandy says:

    so..who plugged the 49ers in during that power outage?

  253. Eric Bowser says:

    Big Mo must have turned out the lights…. because here come the 49ers

  254. TJ says:

    Ray Lewis falling on Davis 3 seconds after he’s on the ground

  255. Jandy says:

    wow…there’s another TD

  256. JMB says:

    It’s a game!

  257. Jandy says:

    looks like it

  258. TJ says:

    Man what a block.

  259. Bizrow says:

    God to Ray-Ray

    Its not over yet, big fella

    Come up, regardless and see me sometime

  260. Eric Bowser says:

    we have a ball game.

  261. Jandy says:

    Night Osh Kosh

  262. Drew71 says:

    ray ray?

    ray ray?

    (i have nothing else)

  263. TJ says:

    Onside kick! C’mon Harbaugh.

    Speed stick commercial was pretty good

  264. TJ says:

    Who was asking for the Nance plug of the Masters?? There ya go

  265. Eric Bowser says:

    great block to seal the edge for Gore by Walker.

  266. TJ says:

    Something about the clydesdale commercials.

  267. TJ says:

    Sheesh Jones has looked skiddish since the TD

  268. pattonbb says:

    Nance, in April, at Augusta….that’s good stuff.

    Nance, with Simms, calling the Super Bowl…..terrible stuff.

    Stick with what you’re good at CBS.

  269. TJ says:

    I think I just may have dropped a turd in my pants

  270. Jandy says:

    and a fumble recovery lol

  271. Jandy says:


  272. TJ says:

    Go for 2 or 1 if you score a TD here?

  273. TJ says:

    Ahh they blew it there. No need for 2 shots in the end zone

  274. Jandy says:

    another chance for the FG

  275. TJ says:

    Oh Christ Simms…. That was a great acting job by Akers.

  276. Milo Hamilton says:

    Hope you all had the “over” out there.

  277. Anyone else like the Oreo cookie battle in the Library commercial from the first Quarter? I thought it was pretty funny and a nice take on that “less filling-taste great” from Miller.

  278. Jandy says:

    getting closer

  279. TJ says:

    Ravens get a TD here and its over

  280. Bizrow says:

    Its not over

  281. TJ says:

    I miss Paul Harvey

  282. Milo Hamilton says:

    Paul Harvey. Good day.

  283. TJ says:

    I think this drive is going to decide it

  284. TJ says:

    There is absolutely zero arch on Kaepernick’s passes. He throws them on a line. What a freak.

  285. Jandy says:

    Just wow

  286. TJ says:

    Have all year to draw up a 2pt play and thats what you come up with?

    Thank God Tomlin saved those 2pt plays against SD in case we would have ended up in the same position in the SB.

  287. Bizrow says:

    Still to be determined

  288. TJ says:

    Thats a huge missed 2pt try. TD puts this game away.

  289. TJ says:

    Nice job of CBS not showing the over head view to see if Reed was offsides. Wouldn’t want to show the Ravens getting a call in their favor

  290. TJ says:

    Unbelievably stupid penalties by SF. Just cost themselves this game

  291. TJ says:

    I stand corrected

  292. Drew71 says:

    Four minutes. One drive. Put in Joe Montana.

  293. Drew71 says:

    I’m just ticked that they didn’t convert the two points. I wanted overtime.

  294. TJ says:

    Never imagined it would come down to this. God has set this up so that Ray gets a big sack or a turnover

  295. TJ says:

    Not me… Not with Akers kicking for SF

  296. TJ says:

    Vernon Davis you just missed out on your Manningham opportunity

  297. Drew71 says:

    those things on the end of their wrists. what are they for?

  298. Jandy says:

    My all-time fav player!

  299. TJ says:

    Ray Lewis doing his best Te’o impression

  300. Jandy says:

    He sure isn’t reliable

  301. TJ says:

    Hide the deer chips

  302. Drew71 says:

    They may score too quickly

  303. Jandy says:

    just wow…

  304. TJ says:

    Holy crap

  305. TJ says:

    BAL should be using the TO’s

  306. TJ says:

    For some reason I’m actually nervous

  307. TJ says:

    Ok… Samsung just won best commercial

  308. Jandy says:


  309. TJ says:

    Officials on that side handed the Ravens the game.

    WTF is Simms talking about. The WR was FLAT OUT HELD

  310. TJ says:

    Absolutely ridiculous. Simms needs punched in the face.

    POOR play calling inside the 10 by the 49ers

  311. TJ says:

    I cannot believe Simms defending the no call. Unbelievable

  312. Jandy says:

    Referees just handed the game to Baltimore

  313. Jandy says:

    he’s an azzmunch

  314. TJ says:

    I don’t know how the NFL can defend not throwing the flag on that play. Just flat out horrible.

  315. Jandy says:

    you got that right

  316. TJ says:


  317. Pat4Pgh says:

    Just what Goodel wanted, an opportunity to give the trophy to RyaRay.

  318. TJ says:

    He had his arms wrapped around the waist of the guy from SF…. plain as day

  319. Milo Hamilton says:

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are the only team to win 6 Super Bowls. That’s all I got.

  320. Drew71 says:

    i can’t wait until the next half

  321. Milo Hamilton says:

    If this were wrestling, Ray Ray would announce his “last ride” was all a swerve and he’s coming back next year as a member of NWO.

  322. Drew71 says:

    There’s only so much fun i can take

  323. pattonbb says:

    …….with Ric Flair and Arn Anderson!!

  324. Karen22 says:

    WORST officiated game of the year! They called NOTHING (particularly when the Ravens were doing the nasties)! BOOHISS!
