Super Bowl Sunday

It’s Super Bowl Sunday.

Hip hip hurray! It’s a holiday in the Squirrel Queen household.

A day for the best finger foods and snacks of all time. A day for football. A day for creative advertising. A day for comradery. A day for beer!

Unlike many seasons, I’m not rooting against a team, but I will be pulling for one this year.

Peyton and the Colts already have one Super Bowl ring and a Lombardi trophy. Let Drew Brees and the rest of New Orleans celebrate tonight. It would be great to be down on Bourbon Street this evening.

Like the song says, “this aint your daddy’s Saints.”

No matter which team wins today, I’ll be OK with it.

Facebook Flipouts

I never got a MySpace page. I figured I could express my moods  just as well here at ye olde blog.

However, Newscoma finally talked me into getting a Facebook page not too long ago.

It’s ok, but I don’t put too much personal stuff up over there. I don’t shoot people with water guns and I haven’t joined a mafia. I don’t plant flowers or send flair. I just keep up with people in my community.

Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka may want to think about backing down on the amount of time and personal stuff he puts on Facebook. The NFL player was arrested and charged with simple battery after he and his wife got into a brawl when she discovered he was talking with another woman on Facebook.

He claims she stabbed him with a pen.

If she’d used the Mil-Tac Tactical Defense Pen, he might not have been able to throw her down the stairs and then she could have used it to sign all the police paperwork.

Titans Still Undefeated At 9-0

It wasn’t easy but the Tennessee Titans improved to 9-0 in the 2008 season with a 21-14 win over the host Chicago Bears.

The Freak, Jevon Kearse, (who has the biggest hands I’ve ever had the chance to shake) showed off his team’s record by placing a piece of tape between the 9 and the 0 on his #90 Titans jersey on the sideline in the game’s waning moments.

The running game of LenDale White and Chris Johnson had a rough day against Da Bears defense, but the Titans’ offensive line gave Kerry Collins time to throw and the Tennessee defense made big plays when it needed to in order to win. Cortland Finnegan is a beast in the secondary.

We’ll see how long these Titans can keep it up. Hopefully for a good long while, but I would trade a loss now for a Super Bowl win later.

Chris Berman explodes (nsfw)

The Squirrel Queen presents your chance to be a fly on the wall behind the scenes at Monday Night Football. ESPN’s Chris Berman blows his stack after halftime of a game. You can almost see those stray hairs on top of his head flapping in the breeze created by all the hot air he’s heaving at the rest of the staff.

Off the air, the sports world’s current king of the combover (not counting Purue’s retired Gene Keady) gets a bit foul with his language in calling the behind the camera staff unprofessional for their antics during a live halftime break.

Hat tip to Newscoma.

New England Hatriots, errr, Patriots

It’s inevitable. It’s unstoppable. It’s the New England Patriots.

Right now, the undefeated season is practically a given. One more “Super” win will complete the historical campaign for Bill Belichick’s boys.

I don’t have to like it though. I don’t have to root for them.

I think the last time I rooted for the Pats, Steve Grogan had his hands under the center’s butt and their helmet had Patriot Pat on the side of it.

It seems I’m not the only one who has seen enough of Brady and the gang coming up winners. I’m sure more than a few members of the 1972 Dolphins are with me on this and will appreciate these two videos.

I know it’s history in the making and it’s magical for the Pats fans and the NFL purists, but I know the entire upcoming summer and 2008 preseason will just continue my misery as the 2007 season will be rehashed ad nauseum. Ugh!!

It could be the season that will never end.
