zSuper Bowl zPorn

Big game tonight, I guess. I'm mostly excited about the appetizer festival we're making as a family to celebrate America. But our tradition of service as a comment zone for big national events demands that we post something. The public needs us. And we're not a blog that shirks its duty.

If you've got $312k burning a hole in your bank account, and you aren't willing to wait for the GOP to destroy the economy to see it disappear, then I've got just the thing for you. Legendary British automaker Aston Martin, James Bond's preferred ride, just announced a convertible version of its Vanquish platform, and holy Lord above is it a gorgeous piece of automotive ass.


Not only does the V12 engine pump out 580 horses, but it packs Satin Chopped Carbon Fiber panels and a Sumptuous Bridge of Weir Caithness Leather. If you know what that means, you'll know how incredible this car is. And if you know, I'd love it if you could tell me. Because I don't know.

But look at that thing. It's a damn sculpture on wheels. Prettier than anything we'll see tonight, with the possible exception of Julio Jones.

Roll Tide.

Fuck Jerry Jones.

I have no problem with him getting into the HOF but not if it came at the expense of a player. How is Faneca not in? 9 pro bowls, 6 first team all pros. What more can you do?

Shlara said...

Rob--what apps are you guys serving?

zman said...

You can get a used Aston for under $50k, under $40k in some cases. Ownership costs are likely astronomical. One of the writers at Jalopnik got 2007 Vantage for $36k. I suspect it will bankrupt him.

Mark said...

Following up on Shlara's question, what's on everybody's Super Bowl menus?

We're doing fried chicken and raw oysters.

Mark said...

Faneca definitely deserves to be in the HOF. I'm happy for Terrell Davis. He deserves it. Kind of the Gale Sayers inductee of the modern NFL.

I thought John Lynch might get in. I suspect he will in the next year or two. Eventually that Bucs D that won the Super Bowl will have five in the HOF.

zman said...

I will be serving Hungarian salami.

rob said...

we're doing pulled pork nachos, wings, stuffed potato skins, an italian sub, guacamole, and brownies. and it's only my family. i'm skipping lunch and working out twice today.

TR said...

Homemade guacamole and turkey burgers at our place. Probably pretty lame, compared to all of y'all.

TR said...

But it's still a great day in our house. My 9 y/o won his weight class at a wrestling tournament. His final match was tied 6-6 and went to an OT period. He got a takedown to win 8-6.

rob said...

he couldn't score one more point?

Danimal said...

Get some TR jr.

Sausage nachos, smoked wings.

rob said...

george and barbara!

Mark said...

Falcons are getting pressure with 4. That's the recipe.

TR said...

First beer commercial of the game is Busch!?

mayhugh said...

Under looking good.

Mark said...

Who's more unlikable, Brady or Edelman? Fuck those guys.

Mark said...

The Busch commercial is a good opportunity to mention that my Mom used to rock a shirt that read "If you like my mountains you'll love my Busch". There is photographic evidence of this. She was a hip, hip lady.

mayhugh said...

Brady Is fascinating to me. Rich. Successful. Attractive wife. Been in the public spotlight for years. And still seems like he is probably a pretty massive dork. Never grew the cool gene.

Mark said...

Huge dork. Also kind of a dick, IMO.

TR said...

You could say the same for Jeter. But with a fistful of rings, nine figures of net worth, a HoF resume, and a legacy of taking down supermodels, who cares?

T.J. said...

Thank you Febreze for that poop commercial

Mark said...

Jeter was intentionally bland publicly. Brady isn't the same animal, IMO.

T.J. said...

Hahahahaha. Fuck the Patriots

TR said...

Very excited to have Gerald McRaney back in my life.

rob said...

this game is this nfl season in microcosm. dull, lacking brady for a big chunk, lame in the postseason.

TR said...

Agreed, Robbie. I'm just hoping for a quasi-close game. Seems unlikely.

I think my wife has the hots for Lady Gaga. And I think that's okay.

Danimal said...

Gaga's got talent. That was pretty damn good.

Mark said...

My five year old just fell in love with Lady Gaga.

Mark said...

I tweeted the exact same thing as TJ's comment at 7:45.

Gaga does have real chops. I made my kid sit and watch her in hopes she'd dig what she saw. Parenting win.

zman said...

Belichick turned into Andy Reid. Weird clock management.

Mark said...

Indeed. That drive took forever. Brady has been very inaccurate.

TR said...

Brady's inaccuracy has been the story. I recall at least three pivotal passes he missed on. It's four, if you count the INT.

I don't ding Belichick for the clock. The Falcons are taking away the big plays.

Mark said...

Atlanta's DLine is whipping the New England OLine.

Mark said...

Brady missed another one to Edelman on that drive. His misses and Atlanta's pass rush are the two big takeaways for me.

TR said...

Adriana Lima is sooooo dumping Edelman after tonight.

zman said...

Marko Jaric approves. Much like Ray J, he hit it first.

zman said...

You don't think they should be in hurry up?

rob said...

innnnteresting

rob said...

i told you julio jones was beautiful

mayhugh said...

Holy crap. That's a catch and Atlanta just burned their last timeout.

Danimal said...

You must be kidding me. They are going to blow this.

Mark said...

How did he catch that??

zman said...

Hoooooooly shit!!!!

zman said...

That's some David Tyree shit.

Mark said...

Atlanta has done EVERYTHING wrong in the 4th quarter.

zman said...

I want this Alfa sooooo badly.

mayhugh said...

As improbable as the Russians rooting for Rocky, I now want NE to win.

zman said...

Wow

Shlara said...

America needs the Falcons to be great right now

zman said...

Atlanta had enough time for a FG

zman said...

I disagree. Georgia went to trump.

zman said...

Edelman for the return TD? Spot pass?

mayhugh said...

No Bushes back for the ot coin toss?

Danimal said...

Very happy I am not a Falcons fan. They got no chance.

TR said...

My wife loses on this, b/c she has to deal w/ the kids in the AM, both of whom are up and amped.

Danimal said...

Arthur Blank and his battle axe went down to the sideline way too early. What a dolt. You don't do that shit.

Danimal said...

Gisele images are worthwhile. She's purdy.

Donna said...

Late to the post bc cooking right up to game, then viewing...chix wings/two sauces (classic buffalo and honey bourbon), nachos in a Catan-game set-up (we are the nerdiest family on earth), bratwursts, chili cheese dip with biscuit dippers, cheese/crackers/summer sausage, spinach/artichoke dip and chips. Oh, and chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with homemade buttercream icing for dessert. One other family here. We're crazy! But it was delicious, even if I was the cook. Agree with game analysis--holy crap! Brady off until 4th quarter! Falcons D- tired now!!

zman said...

Tremendous game.

Mark said...

THat was amazing. Fuck the Patriots but shit I can't even be mad at that.

rob said...

damn

Danimal said...

i have a feeling that Brady is done.

Mark said...

Trump left his Super Bowl party when the Falcons scored to make it 28-3. He's totally going to take credit for the comeback.

zman said...

I thought he wants to play until he's 44. But it makes sense to retire on that note.

TR said...

He'll be back. He can put up three more elite years, barring injury.
