Super Bowl 52

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 4, 2018

“Lii?” WTF is that? One of PaulinAsia’s new girlfriend’s? Just say 52. Jesus, 16 doesn’t seem that long ago, does it?

Very happy to not have any money on this game. I am obviously rooting for the Eagles despite their neanderthal fans because I am not down with Tom Brady. I met his sister once, she was hot. Hopefully she’s not anymore.

Anyway, the line opened at -6 and it’s slipped to -4.5. Lotta wise guys out there trying to find reasons to bet on Philly. I guess it could happen. But Lady Luck always seems to shine upon *Do No Wrong* Brady. He’ll probably end up with another MVP award. I’m not sure how many he’s won in the SB but you can make a case that another guy should have won at least a couple of them. For instance, you could have given one to the entire Falcons team last year and all of their coaches….

My best Super Bowl betting story is the one where I threw away the winning ticket on Carolina scoring exactly 29 points (2004). My main man Dave Anderson got the sportsbook to pay it out even without me producing the ticket. That was amazing.

    I can understand those who make the era argument, but imo it’s meaningless. Brady and Belichick are best of theirs.
    Talked to a Redskins fan who is thrilled to get Alex Smith. As for the can’t win big one diss, other than Brady who can these days? Rodgers or Brees? Russell Wilson? Roth? Great Qbs with like 1 or 2 max in entire career.

    Found the old Clarke’s in Mtn. View on El Camino last night after b-ball practice, dang good burger. Not much under $10, but really good.
    They serve it with sliced tomato (optional) open faced and have ton of condiment options you can add yourself.

      That’s awesome you went to Clark’s last night, prompted just from some blog rabble

    Got a couple laughs out of this, especially the Philly part of it:

    Still need to hit up Kirks sirloin burgers, think their in the Country Square shopping center (elcamino) across from Stanford . Their Burgers are the bomb, served on a French roll with all the toppings you can think of, badass!

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2018 at 12:20 pm

      that’s “Town and Country Village” my man. And don’t bother, I find them highly overrated, at least the one at T&C

  4. snarkk said, on February 4, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    Does anybody think Gregor Blanco really has a shot at the 25 on opening day? This is scaring me.
    Meanwhile, is there some sort of football game today?…

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2018 at 1:49 pm

      if Duggar faceplants in ST I think it’s nearly a guarantee that White Shark makes the team. You can also expect Booby to check in on BJ Upton’s wrist I bet…..

  5. willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    Foles first pass is 4yrds, second one behind line of scrimmage…what’s over/under how many short passes in this game? Doesn’t anyone drop back for 3-4 seconds and throw 10-15 down the field?

    • willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 3:40 pm

      guess if it works…sometimes team that scores easily first time with the ball, it winds up being only time they do.

  6. willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 3:50 pm

    That Hogan guy is from…Monmouth.

  7. zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 6:34 pm

    Awesome Eagles defense with its zero sacks so far.

    • willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 6:41 pm

      over under was 48. Yeah Brady has lit them up like no one else did. Foles better keep scoring.

  8. xoot said, on February 4, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    Why does Collinsworth have this job? He’s the worst

    • Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:31 pm

      I was just thinking the same thing. What a turd.

  9. Flavor said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Fuck Tom Brady. Loving this.

    • Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:32 pm

      LOL. I heard the Philly cops greased the light poles with hydraulic fluid to keep the carousers on the ground. That should be entertaining to watch.

  10. zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:19 pm

    Eagles D finally made some plays.

    • Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:31 pm

      Yep.

  11. zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:21 pm

    National nightmare averted.

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:35 pm

      now the nightmare will be confined to just one city. Philly will burn down tonight

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:41 pm

        Yeah, the one negative thing about this Super Bowl result: Philly sports fans.

  12. James said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    I barely watched, but I did hear Collinsworth marvel almost in disbelief that the game was itself as entertaining as the halftime show — wow, imagine that. That was the highlight for me.

    • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:05 pm

      And the halftime show sucked; so go figure.

      • Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:18 pm

        So does Collinsworth, so it’s fitting.

  13. wilcojoe said, on February 4, 2018 at 7:55 pm

    The Empire State Building has been lit green. Yeah, that’s going to sit well with New Yorkers.

    • Macdog said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:06 pm

      The Jets fans are happy, anyway.

    • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:02 pm

      Believe me no one will even notice…

  14. zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    I don’t know who Brian Gaar is. He tweeted this:

  15. Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    1,151 yards of total offense. Entertaining game, but not great if you care about defense.

    • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:39 pm

      It was another good one for TV ratings.

  16. willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:28 pm

    Foles had himself a pretty dang good game and marched his team down the field for the TD when he needed to.
    Pretty impressive for a backup that’s bounced around a lot. No recollection of him playing college ball at Arizona

    • James said, on February 4, 2018 at 8:52 pm

      There should be a Doug Williams trophy awarded every time a shitty QB wins a Super Bowl.

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:04 pm

        Fun fact: Williams only won 4 more games as a starting QB after that Super Bowl.

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:12 pm

        A national media person making that statement would probably have to apologize…

      • James said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:35 pm

        Loo, I thought about the first black QB thing right after I hit post comment, but in my defense I’ll offer that I’m a stats guy who has long believed that judging individual player-heroes based on the number of championship teams they’ve played on is kinda dimwitted. See Barry Bonds.

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:41 pm

        No doubt, James and I 100% was not accusing you of anything. Just commenting on the way things are now…

    • willedav said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:05 pm

      james my Redskin fan buddy likes to tout that a factor of J Gibbs greatness is that he won with likes of Williams and Mark Rypien as his QB.
      Didn’t Hostetler win one too?

      • Lurker John said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:11 pm

        The Scott Norwood game, I believe.

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:17 pm

        And that Ravens guy, too. I can’t remember his name. He got replaced the next season by Elvis Grback.

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:20 pm

        Detmer?

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:26 pm

        Dilfer. I just now looked it up. That was an UGLY Super Bowl.

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:29 pm

        “All 16 of the Giants’ possessions ended with punts or interceptions, with the exception of the last one, which ended when time expired in the game. New York’s lone touchdown, a 97-yard kickoff return, was quickly answered by Baltimore on an 84-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff.”

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:32 pm

        I meant to type Dilfer. (Twin loved that excuse)

  17. djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    The most intelligent basketball player I ever saw was Clyde Frazier. As the Knicks TV color man, he must be freaked out by the incredible stupidity he is subjected to night in and night out…

    • zumiee said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:22 pm

      It’s been a long Knicks drought, for sure.

  18. djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    I guess the Chiefs should’ve played Foles over Alex when they had him…

  19. djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    Looks like they’ve started burning down Philadelphia. Why the fuck not? When the Rangers won the Cup in ’94 (54 year drought), us NY animals spilled out onto Broadway and went crazy without a single incident.

    • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2018 at 9:35 pm

      That was the night I found out that I dance better with men…
