Ok Brinker almost Brinkered himself last night.  Double fisting Makers and Bass for the entire last quarter.  However this is the best hangover of my life.    Ben is unreal, Santonio is a legit #1 receiver (hope we can keep him for a long time).  Silverback and Woodly...a great game considering how often they were held.  I don't know about you, but seems like every game this year was an absolut thriller.  This season took years off my life, but years I am more than willing to give up.

Heh, no reason to bitch about the refs this time. Calls went both ways.

Well, you can forget that.  You're right, but that's not what you're gonna here.  One thing I will say is that, for the most part, ESPN hasn't said much about it so far today.

Technically, SA should have been penalized.  But I've seen a couple of those "ball as a prop" deals go uncalled this post-season, so maybe the league decided to de-emphasize that.  What Faulk should have said was, "That penalty shouldn't even be on the rule books."  Plus, since the refs and Cardinals believed that every good play the Steelers make should be reviewed, they can blame themselves.  Ref can't call a penalty when he's got his head under the hood.

Honestly, they should have just reviewed the last play by Warner to shut everyone up.

I really don't care anymore about that crap anymore.  Let 'em whine, it's the recourse for losers.  The Lombardi Trophy is going home.

They did review it. Mike Pereira, VP of Officiating, said that the booth upstairs looked at the play, and confirmed the ruling on the field.

He also confirmed if Harrison didn't make it into the EZ, the Pitt offense would have gotten another play with the clock at zero due to the facemask penalty on the Cards, who were the defensive team after the change of posession.

Here is the only time I would get super pissed about porn....

Porn interrupts final three minutes of Super Bowl in Tucson

A Comcast spokesperson said the company is working to determine what happened.
Monday, February 2, 2009
Sports fans in Arizona got a surprise when the Super Bowl was interrupted by a pornographic film.
Tucson-based KVOA-TV said it was "dismayed and disappointed" after some cable viewers had their match coverage disrupted towards the end of the game.

The company said the material was only seen by viewers of Comcast.

The only Arizona-ites that have a fair reason to say that they got screwed.

That was absolutely incredible.  BV is in rough shape and was quite a spectacle at SB party.

I think Ike Taylor came up absolutely huge today.  Without Fitz'sTD where Troy was supposed to be over the top, he was under 100 yards and his 1st TD catch was a Tyree like bonus catch, and he had great coverage.  Ike was fukin doin it.  The D did a great job on everyone else, with a few leaky plays.  Harrison, Woodley, Farrior, Smith, Snacks, and Kiesel.  Kicking mother fucking ass.  Those guys were dog ass tired, rushing 3 guys on that last play, against 5 blockers, Woddley with the hit and Kiesel recovering the fumble.

Holmes - All I can say is there will be no more "run you f-in pothead" screamings during games.  Holmes was huge in the clutch.


Nice job Black and Gold!!!!!

No doubt Troy blew that coverage on the long TD.  But man, what if he hadn't?  There's likely not enough time for 7 and the boys to do their thang.  Assuming the Cards would have scored on that drive anyways.

But the D was awesome for 50 minutes.  But together the team was awesome for 60.  Like Tomlin said, "Steeler football is sixty minutes."

The first two hours of sportscenter this morning there was nothing said about this "controversial ending."  Then all of a sudden, Tim Hasselbeck displays his douchebaggery talking about how it was a critical error by the officials.  Fuck ESPN...

GO STEELERS!

Because of my ski weekend followed by Steelers SB, I am exhausted today and took half a day off.  Unfortunately, this also caused me to catch a glimpse of "First Take."

I was SHOCKED that Skip Bayless gave the Steelers a lot of credit and even went on a tirade about how Ben should have been the MVP and is vastly underrated.  He commented that if Brady or Manning had led that drive, they would be singing praises to them, but they don't for Ben because he's so unorthodox.  He also credited Ben for doing this all season.

Of course, he made up for it by jumping all over the officiating in "2nd down."  Oh well, the world is back as it should be.
