"Official" Superbowl


It was a great superbowl but I was certainly puzzled by a number (or lack) of calls. The "roughing the passer" call against Arizona when clearly, later in the game Warner was hit worse. The "lack" of a call on James Harrison when he punched Larry Fitzgerald. Like John Madden said.."he should have been ejected". The excessive celebration on Santonio Holmes when he "sprinkled the powder" on his hands and threw them in the air after the final touchdown. Finally, the lack of a review on the final play of the game when Warner was sacked. It looked like to me his hand was moving forward. It just seemed like the Cardinals were punished for the same things the officials ignored with the Steelers. GREAT game, excellent commercials and it was truly "Boss time" for 12 glorious minutes at halftime.

This was my favorite....




Brrrruuuuuuuuuccccccccceee!!!

I too, loved the Dylan Pepsi commercial. I went online at lunch yesterday and tried to find that version. Apparently it is a new version of Forever Young made for that commercial????? I saw where there were reports that Pepsi/Dylan/Will I. Am were going to release it on I-Tunes???? Do you know anything about any of this???

Also, there is a real love/hate out there on the commercial. Either people loved it or hated Dylan for "selling out". I have to side with it is his song, he is a song writer and can do as he damn well pleases to make a living, isn't that what it is all about...as long as you don't run over people in the process. I liked what one internet writer wrote, in that there was no overvoice on the commercial, only the music and images....good point....I liked it, and the version of the song...again...is it out there?
Thanks...keep your chin up!

The Cards could have folded when they fell behind by 10, but I think Warner's leadership is what kept Arizona in the game. I, too, felt the officiating sucked ass.

Brucie was mighty fine. I'd have bet good money he would do "Born In The USA"--good thing I didn't! And everybody thought he was gonna say something to piss off all the conservatives...

The NFL has rights to the Springsteen performance that it is no longer available on youtube?! Can the NFL give SOMETHING back?!
