Can we just have the Chiefs and Patriots play again for the Super Bowl? This game is heading to overtime and is by far the most thrilling game in the playoffs so far.

By the way, I always enjoyed watching Tony Romo when he was on the football field but he's even more entertaining to listen to doing color commentary. He's easily the best guy in the business at that job right now and his combination of superlative knowledge and gleeful enthusiasm make him incredibly fun to have on the broadcast. I only wish they could clone him and use the clones to replace so many of the other disinsterest-sounding uninsightful announcers that abound throughout the media.

I agree 100%, I actually had a fair amount of antipathy for him when he was QB, so I'm downright baffled that I find him an absolute delight in the announcers booth.

I didn't watch that game and it sounds like that was a good decision.

Watched the game for the ads and I regret the decision to stick with either of them for three hours.

That game was the worst SB since I started watching sports in 2006.

I feel like we should talk about the fact that a Superbowl beer ad featured ASMR.

A low scoring game does not have to be boring in my opinion. Strong defenses shutting down offense can be exciting to watch.

With that said, I didn't watch this game, so I have no comment on this particular super bowl.

Except that I'm sick and tired of the Patriots going to ever super bowl, and the Saints got robbed.

At least six different people in my Twitter TL made the exact same joke about his torso being a Ouija board and there's a point where "coincidence" and "ripping off each other's jokes" stop and "did his nipple just spell out 'help me' across his tattoos" begins.

@SL: I don't remember the Chiefs getting burglarized as much as I do the Saints, but I already discussed how much brain damage the Saints game caused me. Still, if the Saints, Eagles, or Chiefs made it into the Super Bowl, I would have been all excited for it.

Ah well, it was a good season up until the conference championships.

"Roughing" the passer, and that coin flip in OT deciding the game. But yeah, not as bad as the other game.

Bob Kraft just got nailed for visiting a strip mall prostitution outfit in Florida a couple times.

Belicheck and Brady are among the greatest of all time at their relative positions, which makes it all the more awful that they're both serial cheaters who have been caught and punished several times, and they and their team's owner are trump-supporting pieces of shit, and glad Kraft getting caught and arrested for being a piece of shit bring me glee, and I'm entirely checked out of the NFL because it's an exploitative racist organization anyway but even so I can say with 110% certainty:

fuck the pats

Jerry Jones, in an uncharacteristically charitable move, has decided to spend $5 million to improve the quality of Monday Night Football broadcasts and has hired away Jason Witten from the broadcasting booth so that ESPN can more prominently feature Booger McFarland and his giant cart that blocks the view for fans who paid premium prices for sideline seats.

A rich man improving the quality of the product he sells so that it may sell even better doesn't track as "charitable".

My appreciation for Bruce Arians continues with the news that he has hired two women to be full-time assistant coaches on the new staff that he is assembling since he has taken the job at Tampa Bay.
