Hello, SportsNation. Glad to be back. I saw that Kurt Warner chatted at 11 AM ET and Michael Wilbon is at 1 PM. It's a good thing they fit someone famous in here in the middle to keep traffic coming to the site. Let's begin ...
Are you going to F-WAD this week (Ft. Worth - Arlington - Dallas)?
No. I find the Super Bowl focuses more on the corporate and commercial aspects, meaning the purity of football and competition is lost in the shuffle. I don't sacrifice my own ideals by being any part of that.
Also, I wasn't invited to attend. Because if I had been, I would TOTALLY go.
Who do you like to win Super Bowl XLV?
I don't know. But I think the Patriots and Cowboys will play a great game. (Like politicians, I think media people should have to stick to their original statements, even if circumstances change, so as to not be called a "flip-flopper." So, in honor of most preseason predictions, I maintain the Patriots and Cowboys are playing.)
My name's Jimmer and I ain't no sinner. Shoot the ball and I start to simmer. Winner.
Once the Super Bowl is over and everyone rediscovers basketball, I hope the nation becomes aware of A.J. Fredette -- the Jimmer's rapping brother. A.J. Fredette is like J.J. Redick, if Redick rapped instead of wrote poetry and also if Redick wasn't good at basketball.
Early fav for SB commercials? Budweiser is always a front runner,maybe E-Trade kid?
I haven't seen any of the scheduled ones yet, but I bet a company will do something revolutionary this year where an actor passes gas WHILE getting kicked in the crotch. America would buy every product or service that company produced in appreciation for the cutting edge LOL de force.
Please don't allow that Jimmer post to be seen ever again. Sincerely, the rest of us.
I don't get it. Your post didn't rhyme at all. Please form your future Jimmer-related questions in spitting-hot-fire form. Thank you.
Do you thi that the pro bowl counts as a playoff game and that's why Manning and Rivers don't seem to ever play well in it. Maybe add cassell now too.
This is a great question. And it might also provide a way the Pro Bowl can finally be promoted to get big ratings. Something like: "Peyton Manning stinks in the Pro Bowl. That means it matters. Tune in Sunday night at 7:00 p.m.."
Is there anyone on the planet with a cooler name than PGA player Johnny Vegas? I think not...
Is real named is Jhonattan Vegas. I'm not sure if that's more or less cool. Either way: cool. Not Charles Howell III cool. But no one and no thing is that cool.
How about: My name is Jimmer and when the lights get dimmer it just don't matter 'cause I'll always glimmer.
I hope you're training this week. Don't want you to overexert yourself lifting food during the Super Bowl and come down with Rhabdomyolysis.
I find I can limit my over-training ailments by stopping by my nearby gas station like O.J. Mayo does for an energy drink.
I don't get it,we have always got a guy named Jimmer on our team.
"Just reeled in a prize bass, makin' grades in my fishin' class."
Has Jimmer passed me as the greatest human to ever come from Glen Falls, NY?
What? Is this true? Glen Falls might be our nation's greatest producer of Jim-based sportsmen.
One major problem with this line of thinking is that anything that MeAngelo Hall is the MVP CANNOT be deemed inportant.
True. Although it was shocking to See him play so well in a game not quarterbacked by Jay Cutler.
Which player in the Super Bowl would be the most entertaining if they played a pro sport other than football?
Casey Hampton, DT, Steelers: Olympic diving.
My friends and I miscalculated on our drinking game for the Pro Bowl. We had said a sip for every first down, shot for each offensive touchdown, finish your drink on each turnover, and a keg stand for any defensive or ST touchdown. We ran out of beer early in the second half. Now I know remember why we don't usually watch the Pro Bowl.
I once played a Pro Bowl drinking game where we took a shot every time we wished we weren't watching the Pro Bowl. By the first commercial break I had fallen into a coma.
who would be your choice to play the super bowl halftime show?
I have no idea. Being in charge of picking the halftime show would really stink. Everyone complained that the acts were too old so they picked the Black Eyed Peas and everyone complained the act was too ... Black-Eyed-Peas-y. Which is an understandable complaint.
I'd like to see the editors of Pitchfork pick the Super Bowl halftime act. Then, partway through the performance they could rip them for being sellouts for playing the Super Bowl.
I missed the probowl to attend a birthday party - for my 3 year old niece. I don't think I missed anything.
I think we are supposed to envy those old dudes in the Super Bowl ads that have been to every Super Bowl, even skipping major life events to do so. But I find them kind of pathetic. That said, the saddest people ever would be a group of guys who bragged about going to every Pro Bowl.
Johnny Vegas is a golfer,rats.That was going to my next great superstar.
And you're saying beating someone with a 3-iron would NOT be popular??? That happened a little over a year ago to someone and it's still tabloid fodder.
How do you think Phil Kessel felt being last pick during the draft?
They should have made him wear an outfit like the kid who always got picked last in recess. Ill-fitting corduroys, glasses, a white sweatshirt with some manatees on it.
What's up with fat people taking over tv? First it's the Biggest Loser, then Mike and Molly, now it's Shedding for the Wedding.
If you don't like it then I suggest you skip the Super Bowl then. B.J. Raji and Casey Hampton are playing.
The polar opposite Pro Bowl drinking game would be drinking each time someone makes an actual tackle. I think a 40 would take care of 4 people for the whole game.
This a drinking game The Jimmer would approve of.
Kessel felt terrible. It would have been much better for him to remain a good hockey player completely unknown to non-hockey fans then be the "mr.irrelevant" of the first professional gym class draft and have everyone think he's terrible
Ha, Kessel! You're the worst of the best players! What a loser!!!
They should have had the last guy off the All-Star team come out so Kessel could taunt him. Maybe even hit him in the face with a dodgeball.
I think the better question is how do the Toronto Maple Leafs feel about Phil Kessel being picked last, since they gave up 2 first round draft picks for him.
That seems par for the Maple Leafs.
Any good drinking games we can use for the Super Bowl? Or any good ones we should have used to make it through the Pro Bowl last night?
No. Just don't do one where you take a shot every time there's a crotch shot or burp/fart in a commercial or you'll not live to see the lockout.
Get him, Bill Murray ...
What would be your suggestion how we could make the ProBowl more interesting?
Don't play it.
If you call me out on using three negatives in one sentence, I'll smash your face.
This is clearly not Antonio Cromartie. It's "ur face." LEARN HOW 2 WRITE!
I like the new picture. It has that, "I just killed 12 people with a rusty corkscrew," look to it.
You people like to talk about hoboes on these chats, I decided to get a hobo-style picture taken. It was at one of those old-timey photo places at the boardwalk. By the way, I once knew a hobo named Rusty Corkscrew.
Are you related to that messed up dude who made the movie "Brown Bunny"?
Is that a kid's movie about Easter? I'll chekc it out! /watches movie //vomits while trying to tear out my eyes
who is your fake movie character starting 5? here is mine pg. Michael J Fox t- teem wolfsg- jimmy chitwood - hoosierssf- bud- air bud (the dog) pf- sallay- the guy from the air up therec- shaq from blue chips
That's a great starting five. But I think you have to work Jimmer Fredette in there. No way someone named Jimmer Fredette is real.
Any chance the Steelers try to slip Pouncey's twin brother into the game and say he has had a miracle healing?
That is a fantastic idea. I wonder if the Steelers other offensive linemen have look-alikes. It might be worth trying them out. Just random large people at the mall wouldn't be much worse.
How will the Black Eyed Peas do in the SuperBowl Halftime Show?
I fear a Fergie wardrobe malfunction. Really, really, really fear it.
Can someone call the Charlotte police and tell them to look for a guy named jeff. He may have just passed out on his computer.
Albert Pujols is traded to the Yankees for Tex and a slew of prospects... The world then implodes, correct?
Brian Cashman's original offer would be Pujols in exchange for Bartolo Colon, Mark Prior and Andruw Jones. I'm pretty sure he only casually follows baseball and just acquires players he has heard of. There is a guy like Brian Cashman in every fantasy league. And he always finishes dead-last.
You look like one of my co-workers. It's scary.
How much does your co-worker make? If it's a lot, maybe I can work one of those Pouncey-style switcheroos.
Wait, do you fear a Fergie wardrobe malfuction, hope for it or both? I say both.
Fear. I'm thinking Super Bowl meets Crying Game.
I feel robbed that we didn't get a mike vick v big ben superbowl. i would have loved to see the "morally questionable bowl"
Didn't you hear? Aaron Rodgers HATES EVERYONE WITH CANCER!!!! It was all over the internet a week or so ago. He's bad people.
So, if there's a lockout and no Super Bowl, we just get skipped in terms of hosting a Super Bowl? Darn!
I'm pretty sure that's the idea behind the whole lockout.
Did you watch the NHL All-Star weekend? What'd you think of our southern hospitality. The best part - we're a better hockeytown than most other cities outside of the original 6, and now the world knows it!
Well done on all of that. On the downside, Clay Aiken sang the national anthem. So let me total everything up ... carry the 4 ... add the 6 ... you complete blew it.
How bout that professional bowling!
Did everyone break 100 this weekend? That guy barely breaking 100 was the big PBA story from a week ago. That brings us up to one big PBA story of the forever.
I see the experts predict the Pirates will commit seppuku after the All-Star break this year. What's your take?
80 wins. Book it. (Possibly including their spring training victories. I'll get back to you on that if/when they start 10-25.)
You guys should see the Grey Cup commercials.
I only watch the Grey Cup for the commercials. They run the same ads -- full of crotch shots and people passing gas -- but then everyone apologizes because Canadians are polite.
If there's a lock-out what are other options of things to do on Sundays.
Well, there's church. And ... uh ... looking at stuff, I guess.
Sitting is an option.
You could also pace.
Would you Steelers' fans be more effective if you dropped your towels and used your hands to make more noise? Isn't swirling yellow actually less of a detriment to the opponent's offense than decreased ability to communicate?
Sure. It's like how I could respond to these questions a lot faster if I was typing with both hands and not just my left hand while I wave my Terrible Towel above my head with my right. But what's the fun in that?
I heard that all the beer companies pooled their money and bought up all the advertising slots and are running a giant loop of lazy, stupid men trying to get out of doing things with their wives while getting kicked in the groin and farting
Not only do you have a future as an advertising executive, if you add a few lines of dialogue to that you've just written yourself America's #1 new sitcom!
Horses with gas are funnier than people with gas.
It's funny because animals also have intestines!!! Good job, ad people!
Google "Fergie" and "pee pants" and then tell me what you're hoping for at halftime.
Don't do this, good citizens of SportsNation. I repeat: do not do it.
I'm planning to lock out my fantasy team. How can I get the public to side with me and not the players?
Hey are you for realls homie? cause there be posers out there dogs. doggy dog dog. im sorry im barely 76 years old. im in my house all along cause im so ugly, can you give me tips for picking out them honeys?
Umm ... I've got nothing.
Who eats real beef anymore?
I know. Soy is sooooooo ... hey, it turns out it's actually kind of good!
The weather here will be around 80 all week. The Super Bowl should never be anywhere else.
Do you know Sonny Crockett?
Alright, dear ones. My time is up. Enjoy chatting with the less famous people.
