I think the Edelman Video will surpass the Zapruder Film in viewings by this evening.

Congrats to my Pats.. great season Falcons...suck it Goodell

I think the Edelman Video will surpass the Zapruder Film in viewings by this evening.

:)

Immaculate reception is already taken, so someone will have to come up with something else.

jimmyk

Of course being more a baseball than football fan, I have to steal this from a commenter at Althouse:

History? Ha! Did anyone hit a ball with a bat?

No? Then really nothing happened of importance today. Unless Brady threw a no-hitter, let me be fair.

Regarding the latest Global Warming scandal, some epic comments from the PL blog.

"The NOAA motto: 'Making the past colder since 1988'"

"I say that at the rate they are cooling the past, all our ancestors may die of exposure."

"it might kill mammals before we evolve."

Thomas Collins

CH and Stephanie, I don't think the center of gravity of that game was an Atlanta choke. I think think Pats deserve the credit for the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. I don't claim in NFL history, because I am not enough of an NFL historian to go back more than 60 years. But that tops any comeback I have seen.

And more fun from Twitter:

That Patriots drive took another 5:07 off the clock and actually dropped their win probability from 1.1% to 0.5%

Atlanta has always had a suspect secondary, and it was exposed sucking and wheezing in the 4th quarter.

That time that John Lewis’s team smashed Trump’s team in the Super Bowl.

Really enjoyed catching up on this thread when we got home from watching the SuperBowl with our son's family. Especially enjoyed reading the comments about the 1st 3 quarters knowing what happened in the 4th. So glad the Patriots won. And Lady Gaga was awesome! Displayed patriotism, actually said the words "under God" and she gave a shout out to her parents. It was a magnificent production and all the performers were dressed modestly compared to previous SuperBowls. Very fun enjoyable evening.

I was glad to see that the Gagger kept it PG-13 and left the drones outside the stadium.

No Trump statements either.

Game was great. Edelman's catch was clearly a catch.

Had they ruled that the strip sack against Ryan was void because his arm was going forward---- ironic screwing of the Pats who screwed the Raiders with the infamous "Tuck Rule". Led to Brady's first Super Bowl.

Glad it was a sack. I was bettin' on the Pats!

24 Legacy was very good too.

Really enjoyed the presentation of the NFL Hall of Famers who were from historically black colleges.... two Raiders---- Willie Brown and Art Shell. Art Shell was the first African American head coach. Al Davis also hired the first Mexican American head coach who was a Super Bowl winner (2 times)--- Tom Flores. Saw him play his first game as a Raiders QB.

The Raiders logo was up there 3 times during that presentation with Jerry Rice retiring as a Raider. Did a funky dance too. He and Shannon Sharpe were puttin on the moves and the fancy kicks among those older gents.

Classy presentation.

daddy on iPad at SeaTac

ooops they caught an open mike moment there.

I am confident that when James whoever, the announcer, was walking the Silver Super Bowl Trophy football thru the gauntlet of winning players who took turns kissing it, the descriptive term having to do with somebodies mother (Mutha...) was clearly audible at least 4 times on the TV.

I enjoyed watching that bit of exuberant honesty, and it reminded me once again of how big a lie it is that Civil Rights Icon John Lewis and "tell them your a Muslim" Pelosi etc heard shouted "N" words when they walked out of Congress celebrating ObamaCare.

How many Mutha' redacted's did u count?

It al least equaled the number of Howies.

"24 Legacy was very good too."

I liked it. Formula seemed to hold up well. Wove a lot of character threads together in a tight 75 minutes.

Let's see what the CAIR blowback is. ;)

24 Legacy was very good too.

Hope they replay it, I missed it. Homeland's been a bit disappointing so far, getting weepy for the Muzzies. They must have picked up some writers from Law & Order.

Captain Hate

I don't think the center of gravity of that game was an Atlanta choke.

No, you're wrong about this. After Julio Jones's catch, they had a chance to put it away with a field goal but idiot Shanahan had to keep on calling pass plays to prove that he's a genius and idiot Ryan had to get sacked and then, with a holding call on another idiotic pass play, they were out of range. So instead of being up by eleven with less time and/or fewer NE timeouts, they're up by eight with lots of time and NE has all three timeouts.

That is a choke.

On this case Saturday at 8, check your local station. Its a little derivative, the wife is the target rather than the daughter, the senator's wife incapacitated her successor.

I needed a new ring. Thanks.

Posted by: Vlad Putin

Saw an interview of Kraft and he was asked the question if Vlad had really walked away with his Super Bowl ring.

Said he had and had not gotten it back.

So Mr Kraft said he'd designed a new Super Bowl ring with Putin's name on it to give to him at their next encounter :-)

Thomas Collins

FG wouldn't have been a gimme, CH. Sure, I can see three runs at that time. But choke? Pats deserve the credit for never yielding no matter what the situation.

Dave (in MA)

Daddy, I went to Northeastern.

We don't get to see 24 until 1:30. They're running local postgame programming until then with a crawl telling you how to set your DVR.

CH, my son is closer to your position than mine. He classifies Atlanta's overall performance at the end as an overall degeneration.

Narciso, reading a book this trip on Leo Africanus, Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth-Century Muslim Between Worlds

Odd bits of history but in a time frame you might enjoy if you don't already know the guy. He was a world traveling Islamic diplomat from Morocco, captured by Christian pirates in 1518, and delivered to Pope Leo X at Rome in the interesting times of Martin Luther's schism from the Church and the aggressive Ottomans on the march destroying the 200 year old Mamluk dynasties in Egypt to own the entire eastern Med. Odd but intriguing history you might find of interest. Not a great read by any means, but provides intriguing historical connections to significant figures in the culture clashes of the time. Probably just worth googling WiKi to get the gist of this mercurial character, whose name, Leo Africanus, has always interested me but who I'd never taken the time to flesh out. No biggie.

JM Hanes

Hi daddy!

Thinking of you as I bounce my way across the Pacific tonight -- getting a dose of turbulence that should last me quite awhile! I'm told that burning smell is dinner..... (Not to worry!) Everything is supposed to improve once we hit the West Coast. Any minute now! Yay Pats! Most of the plane is pretty depressed. Seeing as how it's a Delta flight headed for ATL. Not me!

JM Hanes

Duda:

"Never mind,Falcons....at least you won the popular vote."

Now that's funny.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

JM,
TK said it IMO better and more importantly, first.

JM Hanes

Ignatz:

Guess that's what I get for just diving in on the last page from 30K+ feet up over southern CA. They lied about the turbulence.... Temperature outside the plane: -78°F! I do love the flight tracker.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Super Bowl: 34-28
Electoral college: 304-228

I still say the best part of this was the numbers of reporters mocking Trump on Twitter about NE during the first 3 quarters, only to see Brady come back and win.

I hope they all put a lot of money on Atlanta, because, as you know, I want them all eating out of trash cans.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I think I will head back to bed. Dogs woke me up.

They, of course, are now snoozing peacefully.

More powerful storms out here this week, JM. Not sure if that's the source of your turbulence but I hope the rest of your trip is smooth sailing.:)

This is a really, really well-done video. One of the Reddit kids and his dad went to the Deploraball and the Inauguration. He even wound up getting to see a taping of Tucker Carlson's show.

It's very professionally done and if you have 10 minutes or so, it gives you a great feel for how exciting the couple of days were if you were in DC.

Do not read this if you are an Atlanta fan.

However, it contains epic humiliation for Bill Naher and Shaun King.

Also, I must be completely oblivious, because I didn't realize this was some sort of white supremacy conspiracy.

Captain Hate

FG wouldn't have been a gimme, CH. Sure, I can see three runs at that time.

Three runs? That sounds like something my wife would say. That almost overtakes the Tarhole for witless statements made about the game.

Look, obviously the Patriots deserve credit for making superb halftime adjustments which the Falcons did not. But Atlanta's secondary failed to come up with any interceptions when Brady threw the ball into a crowd. You can marvel all you want at Edelman's catch but Brady threw it into triple coverage and right at Malcolm, who didn't do what he's paid to do.

The Falcons are a really dumb team. Even when they physically overwhelmed Seattle they did enough stupid things for the score to be closer than the level of physical domination. If you want to say the Patriots are smarter, have at it. But so is every other team.

Oh I am bitter this morning...BITTER. It would be one thing if the Patriots had come out and dominated from the get-go; if that happened, I'd think "well, I blew a few bucks backing the loser, not the first time that's happened". But no, I was counting my winnings, congratulating myself on not only taking Atlanta with the 3 points, but also outright and also with nice odds at minus 3 1/2 points and 7 1/2 points. I can't stand Brady, and even his friendship with Trump doesn't redeem him in my eyes. DAMN those Patriots, damn them for making my tears fall into what was supposed to be my celebratory beer. Turns out the only high point was Lady Gaga not making any political remarks. Everything else was BITTER SHIZZLE.

Exactly, box; I was actually feeling sorry for those twatty mutts and the Massholes before Atlanta does what it does best. Here's the best bit of advice I can give you: Never bet on sports.

JimNorCal

Yes, sad for Falcons. If Atlanta had won in Otime n/p.
Both teams proud: Pats comeback from down in the well, Falcons take the SB tho with scare.

This result is all downside, sadly. Only time can heal this one.

MM's 5:34 is wonderful.

It is a story for all Americans that were/are excited that Donald Trump won!

Reading all of the comments on Monday morning. If you didn't know before you know now that football is a sixty minute game. "Winning" the first fifty minutes counts for nothing.

Thanks Rocco. Red was rather crushed and I have a headache. Red did say that people were rooting for ATL solely because brady is friends with trump. I had not read about how much Kraft appreciated both trumps from their kindness after his wife of 48 years passed away. Apparently Donald called him at least once a week for that first year to encourage him to get out and just to talk.

Red did learn how to make fried dill pickles yesterday and my meatballs will suffice for tonight's dinner.

Exactly, which was why I was saying some big rallies for Trump would be helpful. But maybe it doesn't matter. This is reminiscent of the Vietnam era, when the media was completely in the tank for the antiwar movement and the Democrats, yet Nixon beat Humphrey in '68 and then McGovern in '72 in one of the biggest landslides ever.

I've made it clear to the lefties I still care about: I voted for Trump and I'm proud of it.

And Lady Gaga was awesome! Displayed patriotism, actually said the words "under God" and she gave a shout out to her parents.

I think her patriotism was actually a lecture to us that we should be ashamed for even thinking that anyone should be kept out of our country.

from the Kurt Schlichter link -

"Understand that when they call Donald Trump “illegitimate,” what they are really saying is that our desire to govern ourselves is illegitimate.

The gymnast and Harry Belafonte piece hyping Equality as the essence of the American vision and then all the patriotic graphics made the graphics in fact about the Marxist Humanist "to each according to his needs" vision.

All the adverts were following this template that came out last week. http://report.businesscommission.org/uploads/BetterBiz-BetterWorld_final.pdf

To quote: "All the actors in the world's markets need to work together on innovative solutions to the most pressing needs of society across the world."

All the CAGW hype and data fraud and temperature commitments are all just an excuse for the planning and the right of governments at all levels to control you and businesses and cities as if we are all 'systems'. That's the purpose of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development and very much what the real education vision is about.

It was simply not supposed to be recognized ten to 12 years from completion. I spent a good bit of the weekend downloading World Bank materials laying out the related global vision after it was referenced in a footnote linked to on Friday by the same profs at NYU who created the Roadmap for the Next Administration back in October. It remains the roadmap unless Trump and his appointees are aware of it. More reason then for the stall on his appointees.
