Superbowl Open Thread

By |2019-02-03T18:26:00-08:00February 3rd, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , |20 Comments

Anybody who has been visiting IM for any period of time likely knows that I do not watch sports on TV.

And I especially do not watch football on TV. 

However, for some reason, I have a tradition of watching the Superbowl every year. 

Now typically I would celebrate this as an opportunity to put politics on the back burner and simply enjoy watching grown steroid infused men playing a child’s game for obscene amounts of money. 

But since the Patriots are playing (Again) I do not get to do that. 

As pointed out in this recent Buzzfeed article the Patriots are now the official team of white supremacists, and their controversial quarterback is also a big Trump supporter. 

Yeah, fuck that guy. 

Anyhow as a card-carrying member of the liberal elite, I must root for the LA Rams. 

Now you can go right ahead and root for whoever you want, after all this is America. 

If you want to root for the Trump supporting, KKK approved New England Patriots that is your choice. 

We won’t judge.

Besides I am really more interested in the commercials anyhow. 

So you go ahead and binge on your favorite high-calorie snacks, and let’s sit back in our overstuffed Lazy Boy recliners and enjoy us some football!

Update: Best comment of the night.

    Tom Brady is bloated and on the rag.

    Someone said CBS is preempting the game with a three hour episode of Teen Mom.

    Best part so far was the Patriots missing that kick.

    Other than that this is a real snoozefest.

    Our grandson is with us tonight so the Super Bowl is on. We had a quick supper and finished just minutes before the game started. I wanted to be sure that we had a genuine vegetable with our barbecued ribs and chicken wings, so we had broccoli. More suitable Super Bowl snacks for later on. I plan to “drop in” on the game from time to time.

    Most boring Superbowl ever and now it looks like the Patriots might win it.

    It’s like the football gods are punishing us for some reason.

    Damn, am I glad this game is over.

    Worst game ever!

    Although i am no fan of the patriots owners politics, the rams sucked.

    Thank heavens for PBS, for those of us without cable. I don’t understand why the other networks assume everyone watches a stupid football game and aired all repeats.

    As a Patriot fan we are not proud of Kraft, Bellichek or Brady being Trump “supporters/friends” but I would like to remind you all the states that root for the Patriots also voted for Hillary by large margins and most of our senators and congressman are democrats by a large margin. Susan Collins is toast after voting for Kavenaugh and Steven King will make sure she is not re-elected.

    Why was Sarah not asked to do the halftime show? She could have played her flute, maybe a more uptempo version of the piece butchered in 1984 at the beauty pageant.

    Speaking of Sarah, she had the funniest comment I ever read in my life the other day. Someone had written that her haters and abusers were just awful people without any happiness and she shows such strength and faith in God to have not let it bring her level of joy down.

    She responded with: “We pray for people like that regularly. I cannot fathom the level of self-hate it takes to dedicate your life to that level of libel. What was their endgame, to hopefully cause me to divorce, a suicide in my family? I don’t know but I have no idea how to even wrap my mind around bogus people who live to bring others down with lies. 2019: marriage still strong. Kids still thriving after overcoming stalkers and intense abuse from haters. My heart is still pure and willing to do what it takes to help people be better and to bring our nation to the best its ever been.”

    I ctrl C’d that.

    I mean, she isn’t wrong. I myself look back and wonder why haters think their opinions would affect her.
