Out of the Blue

Today is the annual high holiday here in the U.S., Super Bowl Sunday. I thought I did better last year on my predictions than I did, I just looked and found I was 8-3 picking without the spread. This year I have the chance to do better, as I put an 8-2 record on the line. My pick is the Giants, which should come as a surprise to no one. Go big blue!

Just got around to playing Serious Sam Double D. Damn fun little game!


Yea i enjoy it, kind of hard as well...brings back that era nicely.

After unlocking about half the stuff (and beating the game twice), I had a bug where I couldn't restart the first level from the beginning, but only from a checkpoint halfway through. So I do a "new game" and it wipes all my earned stuff...

Still fun, but I shelved it for now.

As a Pats fan all I can say is this: they deserved to lose. When your opponent is down to one tight end and your defense STILL can't contain the offense, you have no business winning is all, no matter how brilliant your QB is.

Congrats, Giants. Well played, and we'll deserved.

^D^

Er, I mean - I love Evil Dead! Couldn't agree more, it's impossible to imagine this turning out well. I see it's a female lead, does that mean a guy will get tree-raped in the woods?

They're re-making Evil Dead? Why would anyone do that? Raimi already made it twice! If there's a film that definitely doesn't require a remake, it's Evil Dead.

Seems like the Patriots really fell apart there especially towards the end, lots of missed catches etc.

Yeah, that's been a common theme throughout the playoffs for Giants' opponents. Aaron Rodgers, the best QB in football, had a really mediocre game against them, missing some key passes, the 49'ers had the game sewn up until butterfingers muffed not one but TWO balls at critical times, and then the Patriots' 4th quarter flubs...

Was it a fix???

My bias against the Patriots runs deep. However, when they cut Tiquan Underwood the day before the Super Bowl, they deserved to lose. Congrads to the Giants on their win, now maybe the horde of Patriots fans here in this town will shut the hell up for a while.  
Slow and steady might not win the race at first, until you shoot everyone ahead of you.

I was rooting for the Giants because I just don't like Brady and Belichick, don't really have a good reason for that. Seems like the Patriots really fell apart there especially towards the end, lots of missed catches etc.

Watched the game with my parents and they were pretty furious about the Giants going for two since that caused them to miss their squares and a potential $500 or so.

Wow! Either the playoffs were fixed this year or the Giants were destined to win. EVERYTHING just went their way once the game was on the line. Either way, YAY! \o/

I used to go to Univ. of Pittsburgh games before I started hating college football, and in 2004 when we played Miami during warmups we chanted "don't feed Wilfork" at Vince Wilfork and he was really cool about it, seemed to think it was pretty funny. He smiled and waved and was laughing. The one guy we yelled stuff at got all pissed and faked like he was gonna throw a ball at us, but Wilfork was cool. (the student section is close to the field at Heinz) I just saw Wilfork featured on a pregame story and he has kids and a wife and still seems to be a really nice guy. I'm glad he made it to the NFL. But I still hope the Giants win today.

I only found out which teams were playing just a couple days ago, that's how closely I follow football.

Aren't I just the coolest?
