Super Duper

Last year I got to root against the Giants, even if it meant rooting for the evil Patriots. I just hate the Giants more.

The year before I got to root for the Bears over the Colts. I fucking hate Peyton Manning.

The year before that I rooted for the Seahawks against the Steelers only because I respect Mike Holmgren. But that one didn't matter very much.

And the year before that my Eagles played against the despised Patriots in a Super Bowl that, for some reason, I can't really remember. I guess the Eagles lost, but that's about as much as I want to know. (Psst - don't remind me)

This year...I kinda dig both teams. The Cardinal's story is pretty cool, so is the comeback of Kurt Warner. Even if they did beat my Eagles two weeks ago. But the Steelers play the kind of football that I love. And they have Troy Polamalu and James Harrison...two ridiculously talented defensive players.

So I'm rooting for the Steelers, but if the Cardinals win I would be okay with that. I just want a good game. And some good food. And some good bourbon. Yeah...that's what it is all about today. Good football, good food, good bourbon and good friends.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Becky - I forget...you wearing a Lambert or a Ham jersey today? Enjoy!!!

hello haha narf said...

i only own two jerseys. both lambert. (only one is autographed, though.)

Avitable said...

I think it should count wins first, and then if there's a tie among wins, then count points. Badgerdaddy and I each won 5 times, so he and I should have been tied for first.

Stupid point system.

I'm going for the Steelers.

Slyde said...

hmmm, lets see... you cant seem to remember a super bowl...

i have NO IDEA why that might be, drunky...

Michelle said...

So here's a question for ya:
What constitutes a "good" game?

Let me guess:
Lots of ass grabbing
Seeing how much gatorade is thrown on each other
The show after the game (the office)
The twittering

All that + good food and good bourbon!!!

It's fun, this big game stuff!!!!

Hope your enjoying and perhaps winning some $$$$???

Verdant Earl said...

Avitable - yeah, um, fuck that. ;)

Zibbs - aren't you an Eagles fan, like me?

Slyde - um, I can't remember because I don't want to remember. Not because I can't remember. Get it? Douche!

Michelle - No money this year. Just a good buzz.

hello haha narf said...

yaaaaaaaaaaay, steelers!

Slyde said...

whatever you want to tell yourself......

Arizona nearly pulled it off but I guess it just wasn't in the Cards.

jiggs said...

I was rooting for the cards, but in the end I took solace in knowing that I didn't care either way really.

Blech! Damn Steelers (despite Palomalu) I hate them. Good thing you mentioned you rooted for the Seahawks 3 years ago. You've been forgiven for rooting for the Steelers this year.
