Jack is Back! (On his iPad)

This is an indictment against the arrogant, know all NFL. So who in the NFL is responsible for checking the stadium systems before the biggest game of the year? Incompetence.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

SBW, as I read it he is not even referring to COs at all and in fact juxtaposes these guys who were trying to receive a medical deferment with COs.
Not sure why or if you were rejected from CO status and I have no doubt guys who should have been granted it were denied, but these guys he's referring to weren't even trying for it. You don't become a CO by faking schizophrenia.

Beasts of England

Fiat lux!

p.s. the GoDaddy babe is my imaginary girlfriend: Bar Refaeli.

daddy

Since it looks like we have a technical delay due to field lighting problems here's a link to the famous Roman stoic Seneca, writing about the importance of reading good books some 2000 years ago. Scroll down just a bit to Epistle 2:
ON DISCURSIVENESS IN READING
.

Not, I suspect, a very fun time guy at a Pub, but wisdom in his writings. BTW, I finished "US Grant's Memoir's" coming home today. I thought that an excellent read and highly recommend it. Now I am on to stuff Seneca may not have approved of, a new history on Dino-Fornication The Dawn of the Deed: The Prehistoric Origins of Sex

Already by Chapter One I have penis envy of some Argentinian Duck! (1.3 feet!) Lord love a duck!

peter

That Bar Refaeli commercial creeped me out. Reminded me of a scene from The Last Picture Show where they pushed the retarded kid into the arms of the town hooker.

daddy

Off with the dogs. I'll leave the game tied 5 to 5. Bye! Say "Vavoom" to Kate Upton for me when she arrives.

narciso

All is well, nothing to see here;


Wow. RT @MikeGrunwald: Uh oh. @entergy got a $9M #stimulus grant for #smartgrid in New Orleans. Guess they didn't get to the Superdome.

Dave (in MA)

I wonder if Marino fathered any kids while the lights were out.

Beasts of England

Agreed, Peter. I plan to speak with her about that...

Carol Herman

It ain't like the old days, anymore.

Teachers and cops have lost public respect. While who ever thought a kid could become headline news because she threatened a playmate with a toy gun that blows bubbles?

Lost respect never comes back.

Ann

Why can't we make the white house lights go out?

sbw:

I was screaming at Oprah's ad. When did she care when our guys came home? This is what upset me:

“When you are home ... we are more than a family … we are a nation,” Winfrey says as military members are embraced by family members when they arrive home. “We are a nation that is home again.”

You can tell she only listens to MSNBC.


Dave (in MA)

Ha, sbw @8:46, that's what I said to my brother when it happened.

Jane - Mock the Media!

I really can't believe there was an electrical outage. Hell it went on so long I came home. What a joke.

But I'm rooting for the Ravens so I guess I;m winning.

I liked the old people ad, for Taco bell.

sbwaters

Ig. I did just gloss over it, saw the CO reference, and tons more words. I will read it tomorrow.

I don't expect anyone to understand the complexity of the late 60s-70s. I am thoroughly comfortable with the military and could have been an effective soldier. At the same time, CO status had solid reasoning behind it at the time.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Only the ad contest is still in play. The game is over. Baltimore's defense has played up to its ability. San Francisco showed in its game against Atlanta that its defense is suspect.

sbwaters

Daddy, I wouldn't know for fact, but apparently it is better to love a duck than have the duck love you.

narciso

On Ace's thread, they paraphrased lines from 'Die Hard' , 'You ask for miracles, (I give you the NFL) Why didn't they play the remaining commercials, they could screw up a one car
parade.

peter

SF down by two touchdowns with 22 minutes left. It is not over.

peter

now it is a one touchdown game.

JerryRigged

...plus a little...2 point conversions are not easy...

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I spoke too soon. I may have given the Ravens too much credit over my Falcons. Go Niners.

Jack is Back! (On his iPad)

Once again I spoke too soon. This is going done to a very clos game.

sbwaters

I'm a softy for horses.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Will this game be remembered as the one where the Lights Went Out In The Big Easy?

Ann

I wouldn't want to be Governor Christie tomorrow:

Where the hell is my electricity?

narciso

Well we saw this pattern in the playoff games, specially the last half dozen.

Rick Ballard

Where did everyone go?

narciso


Speaking of in the tank referees;

Buckeye

By far, best commercial, God made a farmer. Cut right through the other BS.

anonamom

I sneak in Downton Abbey during the power outage, and come back to a five point game.
What'd I miss????

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Paul Harvey lives on in that add. Three cheers for Dodge trucks.

Thomas Colins

That's my vote, too, Buckeye.

At the moment, I can't think of a better SB.

jimmyk

Where did everyone go?

Rick, I gather there's some kind of sporting event going on. Or perhaps it's an advertising contest occasionally interrupted by some sports.

narciso

Three touchdowns, right, including one be Kaspernick.

Captain Hate

This is an indictment against the arrogant, know all NFL. So who in the NFL is responsible for checking the stadium systems before the biggest game of the year? Incompetence.

King Roger is not happy with this display of bad manners and effrontery from you parvenus.

Jane - Mock the Media!

By far, best commercial

I completely agree.

narciso

What was that last call, about?

narciso

Well that's the Hawaii 5.O commercial, that ties the guns,

Jane on Ipad

What a difference an electrical failure makes.

daddy

Just back in. What the heck happened? How'd it suddenly become a contest. Darn my dogs.@#$%^

Great to see the 9er's come back tough and make it a nailbiter.

narciso

They project what they do themselves;

AliceH

1:42 on the game clock, so that's, what - an hour in regular people time?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

49ers should win a Super Bowl or two if they can stop spotting teams fifteen or twenty points.

Thomas Colins

Congrats to the Ravens and their fans. Great game.

narciso

As Raylan Givens would say, Ignatz, they should stop doing that,

daddy

There was massive defensive holding on the right side of the Raven's line during that Safety. The defender was completely bear-hugging the 49er trying to get at the punter. But oh well. Glad it turned out to be a decent game, and that there was at least one redeeming advertisement.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Personally I think the 49ers would have benefitted from that delay of game penalty.
Would have opened the field up much more at the ten rather than the five.

narciso

Yeah, they were just running out the clock, maybe that last throw, could have been shorter,

Dave (in MA)

Paul Harvey's words of wisdom.

jimmyk

Via Tim Blair, the Night the Lights Went Out featured an eco-friendly green Super Bowl. Maybe from the same folks who brought us the Chevy Volt?

daddy

Daddy, I wouldn't know for fact, but apparently it is better to love a duck than have the duck love you.

RSE,

Truer words, never spoken. From page 20-22, some unexpected info on duck wangdoodles:

The Duck penis is made erect through filling with lymph fluid rather than blood...Duck penis's have another interesting ability; they can literally explode out of the duck's body.

colleagues from Yale...published a paper in a prestigious scientific journal...research concerned the Male Muscovy Duck...and the speed of their penis eversion (the coming out or unraveling of the enormous corkscrew shaped penis). The first step was to study how professional "duck fluffers" collect semen for artificial insemination...

...The Duck fluffer then whips the drake (male duck) off the female and quickly touches the cloaca whilst holding up a specially made corkscrew shaped glass jar to catch the penis exploding out of the body and ejaculating as it fully extends. In the lab the researchers measured this phenomenon and found that the entire 8-inch duck penis would extend from inside the cloaca to outside and fully erect in just 0.348 seconds. (Next time you are barreling down the highway at 75 miles per hour, just think you are going as fast as a Muscovy Duck can erect his penis.)

Schwing!

Or perhaps that's a little too much info on waterfowl?

centralcal

After a really awful 1st half, the game got quite exciting. I have had too much food, too many cocktails, and quite a bit of drama (did Mama Harbaugh fiddle with the electric circuit to even the playing field for her boys? lol).

jimmyk

Also via Blair, this reporter gets a gold star for dealing with a videobomber:

http://www.vidiload.com/video/110535/News_Reporter_Owns_Videobomber/

Guaranteed to bring a smile.

Beasts of England

I guess that answers the age-old question: 'What's up duck?'

Dave (in MA)

daddy, the duck dong doyen.

Stephanie

Long Duk Dong from 16 Candles...

Daddy's excerpt puts that character's name in an entirely new light.

daddy

Not tonight Dear, I have a headache!

Manuel Transmission

daddy, check your math. An inch/millisec is 60mph. Chasing trains may be more boring than duck dicks, but it usually pays better.

daddy

MT,

I took the above verbatim from the book, so if he's wrong I blame Global Warming. Page 21 has a cutaway anatomical drawing of the mallard's tally-whacker, with the words beneath reading as follows:

Muscovy Duck demonstrating rapid 75-mile-per-hour (120-kilometer-per-hour) penis eversion.

Further research led me to this Science article (With Videos) of Muscovy Duck-fluffers in action: Ballistic penises and corkscrew vaginas – the sexual battles of ducks:NSFC (Not Safe For Chicken-Coop)

rse

I have no idea how I got pulled into daddy's duck story but it is certainly a graphic image to wake up to.

peter

too funny, Daddy

peter

I always found Paul Harvey to be a wee bit of a blowhard, and how exactly do those virtues get co-opted by a union owned socialist car company?

Patriot4Freedom

Interesting game . . .
Went from a "blow-out" to a "black-out" to a "shoot-out"
(if we can still use that expression).

The RNC and our candidates would do well to make campaign ads that touch upon the themes and emotions of the "God made a farmer" commercial for Dodge.

Easily the best ad of the night, imo.

Captain Hate

I always found Paul Harvey to be a wee bit of a blowhard

I did too but that was old school radio where his bread and butter was built around creating a schtick in a medium that a lot of people listened to that would work.

narciso

Our Duke snd Duke station, would never get that, they had a contest prize a DVD of Julianne's Bender, 'winning the future'

Haiku Guy

You know that when the MFM pulls out all the stops to smear somebody, as they have with Gayle Trotter, they are afraid of the truth.

The truth is, an AR-15 is the ideal defense weapon for most women, and banning them will impact women dispropotionately, and make them less safe.

As a man, I can use just about any gun in the safe, because they were all designed for me. But women, because of smaller hands and lesser upper body strength, do much better with the light recoil and high volume of fire they can get from an AR-15, and features like pistol grips, foregrips, barrel shrouds and adjustable stocks are what makes the weapon even more effective for them.

But these are the very features they want to ban. It is almost as if they want to disarm women!

peter

It actually was a very good commercial. I am just being a grump.

Captain Hate

More about Rove doing Soros's bidding. At least he's being honest about it: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/03/Rove-declares-war-Tea-Party

Janet

You know that when the MFM pulls out all the stops to smear somebody, as they have with Gayle Trotter, they are afraid of the truth.

Haiku Guy, I noticed on FB that there were a lot of negative, mocking posts on Gayle Trotter from the lefties...is that happening all over the MFM?

Manuel Transmission

You have to think back to Paul Harvey's hay day. He was talk radio. I can remember many a elder friend, sibling, aunt that managed to be near the radio at 11:45 (or whenever ) to catch his broadcast. It was definitely a red state thing.

sbwaters

So, is it Duke & Duke or Duck & Duck?

I suppose it depends on who is getting screwed.

Manuel Transmission

I've waited for TK to jump in here, but in his absence, what happens if one of 'um has left-handed threads? ;)

Melinda Romanoff

MT-

Mandatory Lunch listening on the ranch. Loved pagination.

Porchlight

Morning all. I had a feeling it was going to be a great Super Bowl (and that the Ravens woudl win), but I also just didn't feel like watching it. So I didn't (after the first quarter). Glad it was fun though.

D. Smith

The comment that was heard a lot in the Old West, just as it is today, goes like this: "I thought he was reaching for a gun. It looked like he was going for a gun." Really? So then if guns are illegal this wouldn't happen?? Oh puhleeze. People are gonna have guns whether the idiots on capitol hill pass some asinine bill "banning" them or not. It won't matter if they try to ban hand guns or "assault weapons". If people want them they'll get them, and if criminals want them they already have them. Do you think they run right up and register them?! Yeah, who's funnin' who?

Taking guns away only gives the WADC criminals more power than they can handle. We've seen what they do with it, so far.
