Not gonna lie - I was disappointed to see CBS cut away to a Couric-Barry interview, but I found it much more entertaining than I thought I would have. She did not hold back and he balanced between sounding contrite and holding to his beliefs. Good job by her and a humble showing by him.

I'm just bummed it took away from the splendor of James Brown's hair in HD. Tremendous.

TJ said...

I'm gonna take it you missed Shannon Sharpe "singing" and ruining any Who song for the rest of my life then, or else you wouldve mentioned it.

Dan said...

saw the sharpe performance. he's got some cajones. and he knew all the words. i was a little impressed by that.

TJ said...

Actually, Dan makes a tremendous point...what were the odds Shannon Sharpe knew the words to any Who songs?

TJ said...

I'm not gonna lie, I'm looking forward to the new Super Bowl Shuffle commercial.

rob said...

feeling good about my numbers in the family 10x10 pool. $25 on the line. my brother-in-law's brother, on the other hand, is in a pool with a $25k total payout.

rob said...

what's the final line on this game?

Marls said...

Indy -5. O/U 57.

Root for saints 6 colts 0.

Dave said...

shannon sharpe sang a who song? wow.

i missed two parties this weekend-- caught strep throat from my kids and spent the last two days in a feverish delirium.

then i found out my pool numers are 8 and 9.

it figures.

TJ said...

Bring it Queen Latifah...

TJ said...

Abe Vigoda is still alive?

Marls said...

Dave,
I feel your pain. In the pool I am in every year, the last three I have had 5-2, 2-2, and 8-8. Not good times.

Marls said...

I am in jamaica, island not queens, so I know not why Abe is being referenced, but yes he is still kicking.

Dan said...

super bowl shuffle commercial my favorite thus far, but overall, none have exceeded expectations

rob said...

daaangerous sequence here for folks who want a close game.

mayhugh said...

I'm just waiting for the commentator reaction in the event Freeney gets a sack. I predict it will be favre-esque.

Dan said...

it took about ten minutes but you were correct mayhugh.
career builder #1 commerical.
nice catch garcon. that wasn't important or anything.

TR said...

Did Marls win the first half for his box pool? Was it the Pete's Tavern pool?

rob said...

if so, marls is funding the g:tv summit

TJ said...

OK, get them off the stage.

mayhugh said...

I like the Who.

TJ said...

Um, are you listening to them?

mayhugh said...

Although Daltry can't sing. Townsend still sounds passable.

mayhugh said...

Also, I took a percocet tonight.

TR said...

The Who are getting it done in a big way.

mayhugh said...

I agree. It took Daltry a few minutes for his voice to warm up, but they are really bringing it now.

TR said...

But it's not REALLY the Who without "Thunderfingers" Entwhistle on bass.

Don't be a hater, Teej. Remember Mick Jagger running around in a half-shirt?

TJ said...

I shall not hate...unless it's on the new medical drama from Jerry Bruckheimer, Miami Medical.

Jerry said...

Senior citizen multi-millionaires singing anti-establishment songs during halftime of arguably the most corporatized event in the world...doesn't work for me.

rob said...

sean payton's huevos are ginormous

mayhugh said...

WOW. I can't believe that call.

mayhugh said...

If I were the Colts Defense, I'd be a little rattled on this series.

Jerry said...

The game badly needed that onside kick and elongated scrum. Hopefully that will set the tone for the 2nd half.

TJ said...

The Katrina Kick changes everything.

Jerry said...

It just might open the floodgates.

TJ said...

Let's just hope Peyton and the Colts can keep their heads above water.

mayhugh said...

I'll admit I didn't expect a Denny's commercial during the SB.

Jerry said...

Lack of such bold moves is why the Marv Levy's of the world failed at the most important time.

mayhugh said...

Who's the MVP at this point? Addai?

Jerry said...

Winning QB. They both have good stats.

rob said...

hartley could get some mvp votes if the saints win

Jerry said...

Can't Hartley Wait

rob said...

didn't know jerry's repetoire went that deep

mayhugh said...

This game is setting up either QB for a chance at a game winning drive.

What is Brees' completion percentage right now, about 85%?

mayhugh said...

Go for 2

mayhugh said...

Run the same play, in fact.

Marls said...

mayhugh said...

That was a completion.

Jerry said...

I know that was super slo-mo, but that should really be a catch. He caught the ball over the line.

rob said...

wow - not sure that was indisputable video evidence

TJ said...

How about some love for the Lance Moore effort?

mayhugh said...

I'd be happy with either a game tying drive or a pick by Sharper here.

Marls said...

For those of us in third world nations, update please.

mayhugh said...

Saints up 7 after 2 point conversion. 24-17. Colts driving with 3:50 left. Concern that they will score with too much time on the clock. They are moving the ball a little too feverishly.

Marls said...

Thanks jamboni. Keep it coming.

mayhugh said...

Barkley rocking what has to be a 58 suit jacket in the Taco Bell commercial.

TJ said...

Figures Lamar Odom would be in a Taco Bell ad.

mayhugh said...

Pick 6 for New Orleans. That should be your ball game.

Jerry said...

Caldwell just moved his mouth.

mayhugh said...

They couldn't resist calling Caldwell "classy" in the post-game.

And I'm kind of jazzed for "Undercover Boss"

Dan said...

are you virginians working today or off with the kids?
next sporting event to look forward to - march hoops followed by Masters.

zoltan said...

Front page, above the fold, of today's WashPo is a story about Saturday's snowstorm. DC is the capital of the free world, and the lead story in the city's premiere newspaper is about a two-day-old snowfall?

Are the subways still shut down? Because underground trains can't run when there's snow on top of the tunnel.

Jerry said...

The snow is a big deal here. It will probably have more impact on more people in the area than any other piece of news this year.

mayhugh said...

They are calling for an additional 10-20" starting tomorrow at noon. I'll be working from home until April.
