Into The Dark

A 3rd Quarter power outage? For half an hour????

WTF folks, what the fudge.

I think the 49ers demanded an extra nap period. They sure seem to be in need of it. Maybe they should just go home and try again tomorrow.

Most hilarious one sided football game I’ve seen in ages so far. And after that 109 yard kickoff return ... aww, to hell with it. Somebody hit the switch!!

la di di, la di da, la di do ... time passes ... still no power in the stadium ... CBS scrapes the bottom of the barrel to find some kind of ads to run ... may as well mention those ... didja notice that you saw MORE commercials the first 8 minutes of the game than you saw game? What up wit dat shiz? Hated it!!

Hey, just as an aside, who was that doing the voiceover for the Dodge “God made a farmer” commercial? Kinda sounded like Reagan. Great ad, really got to me. But then, so did the “Clydesdale remembers” one. I’m such a softy. Sniff sniff. So verklempt. Same with Oprah doing the one for returning veterans.

Could you believe that godawful “I’m the next big thing.” “No, I’m the next big thing? ad from Samsung? How long was that piece of crap, an hour? Holy cats. Endless. CUT!!!

No really sexy ads this time. Nothing super funny. Nothing super gross either, thankfully. Nothing really standout either ... although the one with supermodel Bar Rafaeli making out with some blushing fat dweeb got my attention. What the hell? Is there anything models won’t do for money?? Horry Clap, and it went on for like 20 seconds. I have no idea what they were selling ... but ... eww.

Ok, lights are back on, let’s play some football. No, not just you guys. BOTH you guys. Hey, wtf? WAKE UP!! Damn. Alternate universe time or what? Who took the first half Ravens away and gave us this bunch? WTF? WTFFFFF? Am I looking at blatant collusion? Flaccid Flacco now has just one play. ONE PLAY: Give the ball to the little guy and have him run right into the middle of the big pile of guys who want to stomp him. Are we shaving points here? To keep the game interesting and the ad revenue coming in? Or did the 49ers just sleep through the first half, and now they’re awake? This is so imbalanced it’s not even funny. No, not funny. Not enjoyable either. Doesn’t even seem possible. I’ve got no dog in this hunt. None at all. But one team completely dominating the game up to when the lights go out, and when they finally come back on it’s the other team’s turn for complete domination? I spent the first half of the game cheering. I spent the second half being pissed off. Come on. Every Raven guy is totally covered on every play? 49ers guys are always open, and Kopernick has all afternoon to throw the ball every single play? Please. I’m being played here. This is dishonest. Both of you teams can go to Hell. And excuse me, I don’t care if it is legal to run down the clock and give your opponents the 2 point safety. Deliberately giving away points? Legal or not, good strategy or not, it’s dishonorable. So the sleepwalking Ravens just barely win, almost by accident, after spending the whole second half trying their damnedest to loose. No wonder I don’t waste my time with football any more.

Hey, I hear we’ve got pro hockey again! A whole 35 game season after the lockout finally ended, with the exact settlement we all figured out would happen before it even started. Guess them old canucks needed an extra month or three to heal some injuries.

  1. The farmer commercial was Paul Harvey. Excellent commercial.

  2. Drew, Gave up on football a long time ago. You aren’t old enough to remember how fast the game once was. I mean the 50s when I was very young and impatient. It was only later with more and more time outs as an excuse for more commercials etc.
    I recall watching games in driving snow and don’t remember the game being slow for all that.

  3. Wow. And my brother won’t watch football games with me any more because he thinks MY commentary is too snarky.

  4. thanks Doc!

    Too snarky? Maybe so. But I realized later that I’ve been turned into a distrustful cynic. Business lies to us constantly, the government lies to us constantly, the fix is in on damn near everything and lately people don’t even try to hide it. “What difference does it make?” So it’s hard for me to accept such a game as pure chance.

  5. I actually watched the entire game (not the blackout portion) - daughter wanted to see the commercials. Since this was Kaepernick’s first full season as QB did anyone expect him to overcome the Ravens? Good game despite the 49ers 1st half play. The puppy bowl sucked since they added so much stupidity. I don’t need the freak show of Animal Planet breaking in to cheer on the puppies.

    I agree on the lie - 6 corporations own all the news, tv, radio media in America - 6 - and I can remember when some liberal loon was squawking when it was ‘just’ 25 - notice much squawking today? No because I bet those 6 corps (GE, News Corp, D, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS) are all liberal.[from business insider article]

    We are doomed. And way too many people seem to be looking the other way.

  6. I miss Paul Harvey - other than Limbaugh, he was a reason to listen to AM radio.

    As for football, I’ve given up. Didn’t watch the game, didn’t watch the commercials, not one damn was given. Color me an old man, I no longer care.

  7. Think of how lucky that kid is.  Can you imagine him telling all his other geek buddies that he was going to be in a commercial during the superbowl AND makeout with a totally hot chick.  His buddies must have laughed at him, but he got the LAST LAUGH. 

    That kid will have something to talk about the rest of his life.  I hope he got her phone number.
