I'm rooting for the zebras in this one. Miss that call!

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

A little birdie told me to root for the SeaHawks. I like that screaming guy - or at least his accomplishments.

stan

I'm not a Broncos fan. I want them to win so that all the haters will shut up. I don't even care if Peyton plays well. If a Denver win means that we can be spared the endless brain-dead blather from idiots and assholes that has been heaped on Manning since he was in college, the world will be a better place. Although somehow I suspect that the haters will keep on hating.

Old Lurker

How 'bout them Skins!

peter

I don't care who wins as long as the score ends in a 9 and a 1

Danube on iPad

Who are the haters, and whom do they hate?

Weird...

Ignatz

People hate Manning for whatever reason and continually bring up his post season performances, particularly in relation to Brady's to reinforce it.

Danube on iPad

I hate Jim Harbaugh, and since he would be infuriated if Pete Carroll were to win a Super Bowl, I'd like to see a Seahawks victory. On the other hand, I'd like to see Peyton get his second ring.

So for me it's a win-lose. Or a lose-win.

Ignatz

I on the other hand, having more refined taste, like Manning and despise the cursed Broncos, although I wouldn't mind seeing them win for Manning's sake.

I have a niece named Peyton.

Jack is Back

Hard to bet against a guy who set so many passing records in one year.

They say its No. 1 Defense against No. 1 Offense but then those two No. 1's didn't play against each other this year. Interesting dichotomy that will finally be settled on one Sunday in New Jersey.

Omaha!

stan

Manning has often played brilliantly in the postseason. He had the best two games ever played by any player in NFL playoff history in consecutive games against Denver and KC in the 2003 season playoffs. Haters ignore.

The haters started when he was in college. Despite breaking UT's 9 game winless streak to arch-rival Alabama with 3 straight wins and leading UT to an SEC championship, he supposedly "never won a big game". The weird, hate-filled definition of 'big game' continued when he became a pro. If his team won, it was never a big game. Only games that were lost qualified as big games.

Carry a horrid defense, terrible special teams and below average offensive line to within a game of the Super Bowl? He's a choker. That no other QB in history had ever done nearly as well with similarly poor defenses, special teams and O-line did not matter. Haters hate.

I would like to see Peyton win a second Super Bowl. I like the story of Demarius Thomas - his mother and grandmother will be watching the game from prison - I think they are in for drugs if I remember the story right. He went to live with Aunt and Uncle and managed to escape that lifestyle that devours so many. And I love Peyton.

Remember the Alamo

James D.

I don't like Pete Carroll, so that's one reason to root for Denver.

And the last time Peyton Manning won the Super Bowl, his little brother won it the next season. So there's another good reason to root for Denver.

Go Broncos!

tommy r

I used to watch the NFL but don't anymore. Not sure what it is. Too commercialized, obnoxious braggarts posing as athletes along with monotonous dialogue from the broadcast network and more. Who cares. It's a bore.

Marlene

Happy Birthday Hit!

Captain Hate

Thanks to Pete Carroll, USC had to return the 2004 Grantland Rice Trophy and it went vacant, the only time that's happened in over 50 years. Does anybody want a bum like that to win?

I'll probably boycott the game. Again.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Happy Birthday, hit and run!! Lots of love to you!!!

Wonderful Pieces today, Clarice. Wow.

Truthbetold

Happy Birthday , hit and run

Strangely enough, since Waas' confession American Thinker contributor Clarice Feldman has also called Plamegate a "hoax". And she has now added former FBI Director Robert Mueller to her list of people who "conspired to conceal" this from the White House.

When looked at logically, Feldman's list of conspirators-which now includes the State Department, the Department of Justice and the FBI-fully supports Waas' admission of a big Washington cover-up.

Feldman and the American Thinker want us to believe that top officials at these three different agencies, who all served at the pleasure of the President, kept him in the dark for three years that Dick Armitage was Robert Novak's source.

Why is the American Thinker still clinging to the official Armitage "disinformation campaign" version of the Plamegate story, and ignoring the recent confessions of both Judith Miller and Murray Waas?

Murray Waas: Plamegate cover-up is “something that is bigger than Watergate”

(Does anybody like Pete Carroll?)

Jim Miller

"(Does anybody like Pete Carroll?)"

Practically everyone here in the Seattle area.

I'll have a post up later on just how nuts about the Seahawks the people here have become in the last month or so.

I have no strong opinions about Pete Carroll, since I am that contradictory thing, a mild fan. (I watch most Seahawks games, but don't get very excited when they win, or even a little bit depressed when they lose.) So I didn't pay much attention to his career before he got here.

Stephanie VIP shhhhh its fight club

Hate Pete Carroll. He got out of USC before the SHTF. Hated him at USC, too. Smug bastard.

GO PEYTON!

Read Joe Wilson's Op-Ed in the LATimes, February of '03.

Tbt, it was a hit job by Joe Wilson and the Senate Democratic campaign committee, aided and abetted by our free press. The rest of them went along with the gag from fear of being attacked themselves. And Dubya failed to listen to Cheney, this time.

Insinuation is a sin against credibility.

Also, where's the link to Waas's words, and why is a machine reading the book review?

So put that in your pipe and eat it.

Here's another hint: Joe Wilson's Op-Ed, on the sixth or seventh of Feb, '03 urged the US not to attack Saddam for fear that he would use his Weapons of Mass Destruction on our troops.

mad jack

Since the Broncos have defeated the Patriots with regularity since I was a child I am rooting for a Seattle win. This is sports. Hate for a team's laundry wins over any other factor.

Robin, not the 3rd Mrs. Paul Krugman

Loved the AT article, Clarice. The other day I said to a liberal friend that communism doesn't work. She choked for a moment, then laughed. Sometimes it's kind of fun living here.

My parents live in East Tennessee where Peyton Manning has been elevated to Mt. Olympus status. He seems like a good guy and I like to cheer on the good guys. How else do you choose a team, really?

hit and run

Robin:

I like Sue's method of picking the team that will win.

Marlene

Robin,my parents lived in East TN for 25 years during retirement until returning to NH. I remember visiting during a fall week-end and being surrounded by a sea of orange. Flags on cars,sweatshirts on every person,banners flying on the porch of every house. Rocky Top on every radio station. Quite an experience! We used to go to Calhoun's in Knoxville on the river,and the UT stadium was unlike anything we had ever seen in New England!

Concur.


I don't particularly dislike Pete Carroll. Don't particularly like him either.
The infraction as it related to Reggie Bush seemed fairly unexceptional to me.
And if arrogance or ego is a disqualifier then might as well ban the Super Bowl itself.

Truthbetold

Danube

You think Joe Wilson is the reason top officials at the State Dept, DoJ and FBI were part of a 'conspiracy to conceal' information from President Bush?

hit and run

Shouldn't Stephanie be collecting Super Bowl predictions?

You know...

Winner
Total Points
Final Score
TD passes for Peyton
Length of time for national anthem
How many beers I will drink

...etc

What do you think happened.  Are you afraid to put it out?

Not Danube, and the way you have of asking questions with the answer inherent is crazy-making.

It's always the questions not answered.

What did Waas say and where did he say it?

Ignatz

Here is an example of crazy.

narciso

tiresome, Kim, I linked one of the threads, of Waas's category error, which made it into James Stewart, collection without a theme, some years ago,

CIA, conspiring to conceal.

It's a slam dunk.

Truthbetold

Ignatz

That was sweet of Clarice to throw you a bone today. You are special.

Ockham's blade slices crazily.

I'd like to see it again, n; this Waas thing is a curiosity.

Back to Snark 101 for you.  How did you pass it, anyway.

Oh, please, Tbt, try laying out your case.

I wouldn't blame you for not answering this one, but I am curious about your thoughts there.

Sibol's time with the VIPS was brief. Can you explicate that?

narciso

Well it's like a box of chocolates, but this thread covers it;
http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2007/01/we_help_the_edi.html

I was locked out from commenting then, but lurked.

TNX, n.

Wot wuz Waas was?

The change from 'absolutely' to 'virtually' was highly amusing.

Stephanie VIP shhhhh its fight club

I'd do the stats predictions for the SB but I'm in the middle of finishing off the floors and quarter round and have started painting the bathroom.

Someone else will have to take the feather.

Here's to a happy ending for you on the floor getting laid.

Hit: I am shocked by that last comment. Happy Birthday Hit!

TexasIsHeaven

Happy Birthday Hit and Run! Hope you have many more. I have the big 65 coming up mid March and I'm shocked that I am that old - it feels like I should be about 20, 25.

Remember the Alamo

Sue

I must've the only person outside the state of Washington rooting for the Seahawks. Everyone on my FB page are going with Denver.

You think Russell Wilson is cuter than Peyton?

Stephanie VIP shhhhh its fight club

Lol hit. My happy ending or the floor's?

Glad I did the walk.
