Super Bowl XLV Thread

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers, 3:30 p.m. PT

The winning team will be dipped in silver!

Five burning questions about today's big game:

1. Will Maurkice Pouncey play today? Sources say no, but we'll be ready with the cat puns regardless. Also, how do you say "Maurkice"? (I haven't been watching the NFL Network lately.) My guess is it sounds like "Marquis."
2. How is Super Bowl XLV not sponsored by XboX LiVe? You blew it, Microsoft. Now you'll only be known as the company that invented MS-DOS. 10 PRINT "HA HA!" 20 GOTO 10
3. Is this picture awesome or what? Click to enlarge. Insert sexy pun here. Heyo!
4. How bad did you feel when you read about David Akers' problems at home? He had a lot on his plate. But athletes are supposed to be superhuman and feel no emotions!
5. Could this be the last pro football game for the next two years? If there's a football lockout, will baseball be ready to meet America's need for organized violence? Will MLB tweak its rules to encourage brushback pitches and home-plate collisions? Will they add bars to the front of helmets? Will I learn when to drop an already unfunny joke?

What's your favorite material today?
Cheese!
Metal!

Update from Sax: Usually, our Superbowl tradition here at SoSG is to liveblog the ads. Unfortunately Orel is out of pocket (and scrambling for a first down), so I will try and post wisecracks in the thread itself. I'll say now, though: that Darth Vader kid in the VW ad is the horse to beat at this stage. Good luck.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, are you at your destination?

Steve Sax said...

Nice shirt Deion!

MR. F said...

D'OH. My long week has worn me to the point where I feel sick. I'm missing out on a Stuper Bowl party =(.

Steve Sax said...

Commercials, give me commercials

NicJ said...

pug doritos commercial was funny.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That Audi commercial was pretty funny, especially with the Kenny G cameo.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, I said Bud Light bottle in the nads. Should have gone with Pepsi Max can.

NicJ said...

brisk bringing back the claymation.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

should I go and watch the Super Bowl here with you? can someone explain to me why we should stop playing SoSG fantasy football again?

karina said...

@Czar 12:43 PM but we'll have BASEBALL 'till November if we're lucky!imho NOTHING beats baseball in this world, even when the Dodgers suck.

Steve Sax said...

So far, the Audi Kenny G commercial was the best.

But I haven't seen the Darth Vader kid yet...

karina said...

weren't the Steelers supposed to win?

Spank said...

*comment drive-by*

$@$#

NicJ said...

liked that coke commercial.

Josh S. said...

When Captain America throws his mighty shield,
All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield!

Fernie V said...

Darth kid commercial was funnier on my phone.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey there kids! Working hard to try to be interested in this one.

Mr. Customer said...

Yeah, this is not so good.

karina said...

awwwwww,I have a sweet spot for "(I've Had) The Time of My Life".

First SuperBowl I ever see and I loved this show :)

Spank said...

Axl Rose is rolling in his grave right about now

Mr. Customer said...

@k

Wait...really?

Spank said...

Sorry Karina but the Black Eyed Peas suck. Should have had the Ohio Players perform

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That halftime show made me weep for humanity.

karina said...

@Mr C @Spank @Czar oh well, I did enjoy it! have some patience. I don't know how a SuperBowl show should be like :(

and of course "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" sealed the deal...I feel like you guys just put me on a corner :(

karina said...

Guest Fashion Police liked their outfits, too :(

Spank said...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
That's the face I made when they que'd the Dirty Dancing song.

Orel said...

Sax, I've arrived.

Captain America looks much better than Thor.

Josh S. said...

I am starting to become le sad.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

No need to be banished to the corner. We're being judgmental.

Steve Sax said...

Thor always was a boring-ass comic book, and it looks to be a boring-ass movie too.

Steve Sax said...

Packers look lost this half

Josh S. said...

This is feeling 2010 Dodgers-esque. The Packers bullpen sucks.

Steve Sax said...

Weak Coke commercial at the border

Mr. Customer said...

Pack really missing Woodson.

Josh S. said...

I'm really missing Woodson.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm not one for sappy hokum, but that Chrysler commercial was very well-made.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Agreed. Though on the other hand, it does not make me want to buy a Chrysler.

NicJ said...

Rodgers needs some taller receivers.

Spank said...

Nice fucking game

Fernie V said...

Nobody puts karina in the corner

Fernie V said...

Hey did we get dumped by dusty?

Dusty Baker said...

Someone ask for me?

NicJ said...

this was kind of a crappy game.

Mr. Customer said...

…and we're done here.

Spank said...

FAVRE!!

MR. F said...

GO BEARS! I mean, GO PACK!

NicJ said...

"its a great day to be great baby"

classic

Fernie V said...

Damn Dusty I thought you were working in Dallas and having Internet problems.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Suck it, Big Ben and Favre!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Gotta love Aaron Rodgers. The first thing out of his mouth is regret over not getting the TD on that last drive.

Spank said...

I'm headed for a heartbreak.

NicJ said...

@spank

Already thinking about the Dodger's 2011 season?

Steve Sax said...

Good game and glad that the guy who (allegedly) rapes college women in bathrooms didn't win.

Not that that will stop him from rocking out this evening in Dallas.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The last thing Dallas needs is a drunk, depressed Big Ben roaming the streets.

Josh S. said...

Weeeeeheeeeeheeeeee!
