Woodson out with collarbone injury.
Super Bowl Open Thread
Woodson out with broken clavicle. Super lame.
I did use the medically correct terminology though.
Chuck is out for the remainder of the game. This Super Bowl is going downhill in a hurry.
Woodson out. Damn. It.
If even Joe Buck says your call was bad, um...
Is a much sadder place.
What now? Root only for woodley?
I've resigned myself to the fact that, in all likelihood, next year's halftime show will feature Justin Beiber and The Jonas Brothers.
Bieber at least doesn't take himself all that seriously. He's always been pretty funny on SNL.
It was bad enough to see him on SNL with dana carvey. I cannot imagine putting that douchebag in the Superbowl.
I can see it now....
The Scene: MICH Stadium....At night.....against Notre Dame.....
It's halftime, and.....what's this? The band does not take the field.....
"Oh, hai guys, it's Justin Beiber."
Ok, I can't claim to be a Justin Beiber fan but please explain to me how he's a douchebag. This kid has done nothing to deserve all the hate he gets. At first I didn't care, but after a crowd of full grown adults booed him at a basketball game, I just felt bad for the kid. I bet that really ruined his day. If you don't like his music, don't listen to it! Imagine if Michael Jackson had been hated like that (he probably did, but I can't imagine that it was to that degree). Here's a breakdown of how the JB craze could go:
Teenage fall in love with love with young male artist, ruin it for everyone, it's "uncool" to like any JB song even when he actually makes an ok song that isn't childish. Option A: Artist fizzles out and/or breaks down due hate from public, grows up and isn't adorable anymore, teenage girls lose interest. Option B: Artist matures and so does his music, but because still no one wants to listen cause JB is "lame". Option C: Everyone grows the fuck up and lets JB have his time in the limelight.
Now, I'm not saying I'm gonna buy any of his albums, but I'm not gonna hate because teenage girls freak out when they see him. Sometimes I just want shake a teenager and ask why the hell she's crying over JB, but that's no reason to hate the kid. It's not his fault these kids psychopathic freaks when he is around them.
To summarize this short essay, stop the JB hate. He's just a kid, why is he even popular enough to be getting so much hate!!!???
I love the articles that were coming about his leadership this post-season, one of the best examples of Michigan in the NFL currently.
Well, at least this game is going to be interesting. Kind of funny that people were calling it a game at halftime. The Packers have a knack of letting teams stick around, and Pitt is definitely not going to freak out.
Sucks that Woodson is hurt. Hopefully the rest of the Pack can fill in.
Remember when Super Bowls were always blowouts? In the last decade or so, they've been really good games.
I thought the same thing. Nice for those hosting Super Bowl parties.
What's everyone drinking during the game?
Schlafly (a local St. Louis brewery) Pale Ale for me:
Nice, I had some Schlafly's for the first time over the holidays when I was in Wichita. Good stuff.
I'm currently drinking a Bell's Porter.
Oh hell, this Chrysler ad getting me pumped! Detroit baby!
Was damn cool.
Great ad. After so many generic "weird" or "funny" SB ads, nice to see an ad with a little substance to it.
Eminem just won the Super Bowl of kicking ASS.
had no idea he was from Turin.
but I have Frank Zombo still! CMU Chippewa class mate and our homes growing up are only a stones throw from each other!
"Imported from Detroit"
Is this U-M hospital ad just a local spot? I didn't think they did that during the Super Bowl.
I didn't see it, but did see another local ad.
I'm out of state, and didn't see it. We had a local auto repair shop commercial.
Steelers still in it!
Can they get a stop?
But that pitch...ok, that was Pro. Bravo. Play Call & Execution.
Or something, but Big Ben leading a last minute game winning TD drive is NOT how I want this game to end.
Maybe, but at least it's interesting.
Edit: You got your wish.
God I hope this doesn't work out.
Speaking of nice ends...
Here's to hoping for an MVP nod for CW.
Woodson gets his ring. All is well.
He wants it all, and he has it now.
And Charles gets a ring!
Wooooo!!! Woodson gets a ring!
Congrats to Charles!
Nice to see the mgoblog community has its priorities straight.
Matches Manning in Super Bowls, and keeps Big Ben behind Brady in Super Bowls 2-1 to 3-1. And Ben can be MVP for his two picks. The world is good. Crack open a cold one.
