Default Super Bowl Pre Game Show !!!

is usually an 8 hour mind numbing boring exercise to wait for the big game..in New Orleans, the alternative is that one station will replay last year's Super Bowl game, including the airport welcoming home of our Saints and the famous Mardi Gras style championship parade featuring our Super Bowl champions..Who Dat fans are planning tailgating parties around this replay game and dream of the Saints being in the Super Bowl in 2013 which will be held in New Orleans..only in New Orleans

by the way, who in their right minds in the NFL front office award the game in 2012 to New Jersey which does not have a dome stadium ?

I guess I'm a purist or else a Neanderthal. I believe football should be played outside regardless of the weather. Back in the fifties and sixties before domed stadiums, now that was FOOTBALL!

i used to love Green Bay and Minnesota play in 15 below temps while the opposing teams from the South walked around looking as if they'd been hit by a brick bat.

And I wish they'd get rid of that candy-assed warming bench too!

Back then they played with teeth knocked out and the blood flowing. Now they get a cramp and are carried off the field. Back then they weren't a bunch of multimillionaire mamby pambys who made jackasses out of themselves every time they scored a touchdown.

Of course that's back when the NFL was the real NFL.

of course that was before the game became a corporate monster and prior to tv stations paying big $$$$ for broadcast rights and the players union getting some rights and NFL expansions to southern and western cities..let's see, do you want to party in New Orleans or Miami for Super Bowl weekend or Detroit or MSP (sorry Mike)

I think Fergie in Black Eye Peas is sooooooooooooooooooooo fine isn't she married to the actor that you to be on the tv show Las Vegas with James Caan?

Yes. Or was. Its in the tabloids! IIRC he was kicked off a plane for not turning of his phone, too.

On CBS Sunday Morning they did a story on the BEP. The one guy is from the PI ! Did not know that! And Fergie was a child star on Kids Inc.

I don't want to watch all 8 hrs of the day but I don't want to miss the commercials either!:???:
