Super Bowl open thread [Darleen Click] UPDATED II

Our next door neighbors have been flying a Bronco’s flag for several weeks now. They had a pretty good-sized (but well behaved) party a couple of weeks ago. It will be interesting to see what happens today.

Meanwhile, I’m going to embed some of the commercials as I find them. First up, Budweiser has now outdone Hallmark in producing the tug-at-heart-strings style of advertising …

Chevy runs with an almost stereotypical Rugged-Cowboy theme, but adds some sly humor …

I got a chuckle out of this T-Mobile short with Tim Tebow who clearly is enjoying himself (which seems to explode H8r heads all over)

Add your own in the comments, I’ll put them up here.

  1. I’m rooting for the Broncos too, because my wife and her mom like Peyton Manning, and I like living in a house.

  2. Chevy bull better get busy. The herd, it is thinning.

  3. Also, Chevy bull could win hearts with a nice forced-entry-date-night with Woody Allen. That metrosexual lefty ass who now and forevermore is slap-on-sight worthy.

  4. Bill O’Rielly drilling, Barky lying out his ass on national TV. Nothing new.

    “I do not recall” is Clinton’s line, Marxist.

  5. WOOKIE ALERT~!

  6. That’s the great thing about Tebow: since his happiness doesn’t rely on football, celebrity or riches he isn’t going to fall apart after his stint in the NFL.

    And O’Reilly proved to be a total fanboy/wimp with his first Obama interview. No use watching another one.

  7. I think Tebow will be back in some capacity. Maybe he’ll play in the CFL, maybe he’ll try another position.

    So far the game is disappointing as I’m for Denver, but going pretty much as predicted.

  8. maybe denver will show up for the 2nd half

  9. I think Tebow will be back in some capacity.

    Yes, cursing Denver at this point…

  10. Holy moly … Time Warner Cable is carrying Super Bowl and SoCal just went blank screen!!

  11. I’m glad I don’t have a dog in this fight. I do think the announcers could tone down the cheerleading for the Broncos, though, since they haven’t shown up yet.

  12. Seems NY – NJ fans came out for the Seahawks. Should’ve had this in Omaha, Manning explained.

  13. Chili Peppers!!!!!!

  14. - At some point some on-air analyst will start the “So Its not that Manning is so great, its that the defense in most of the league sucks donkey wads”….in 3…2…1

    – Hope the S-gulls can keep it going.

    – The good news is the Bolts aren’t there getting their asses kicked.

  15. So, I wonder if Pawn Stars is on….

  16. And that’s the game right there.

  17. ….and just as I typed that, viola, a runback for a T. Yowsa.

  18. So. Does Denver score this half, or does Peyton Manning end his career as the undisputed owner of “Can’t Win the Big One”. !

    Exclamation mark courtesy Percy Harvin..

  19. Hey, they only need five scores…. o_O

  20. - Its probably still too early but if this keeps up it could be the biggest choke in the history of the NFL.

    – Eli is sitting up in his NY sky-box, and I can’t help thinking that he sneaks a tight little smile every now and then.

  21. Sara Lee doesn’t make this many turnovers.

  22. Stan Humphries is feeling a lot better about himself right now.

  23. >Hey, they only need five scores…. o_O<

    technically 4 td and 2 2ptconv

  24. - So far the Steelers of the West, the working mans team, is making the elitists look like pansies.

  25. - Dan Fouts is too….Heh

  26. tebow drives a ’72 nova

  27. 29 to 0.

    Really.

    Oh my.

  28. I guess it’s nice to see we’re back on track with the Stupor Bowl being some of the worst football played all season. History repeats itself.

    I think I should find something else to watch and come back later.

  29. maybe tebow has a denver future

  30. I want to buy a Bronco’s jersey out of sympathy.

  31. maybe tebow has a denver future

    Doubtful. I still suspect that Phil Anschutz will manage to buy the team and move it to Los Angeles. That is, if Kroenke doesn’t move the Rams first…

  32. I’m pretty psyched about the Dylan tune in the Chobani commercial.

    Can the Denver defense stop anything? I get the feeling I could bust one loose on them at will.

  33. Note to Denver players: should’ve laid off the choom until after Super Bowl Sunday.

  34. The Rams going back to LA? It really is the second 70’s isn’t it.

  35. It really is the second 70’s isn’t it.

    Except with a lot more fascism this time around.

  36. Hmmm… Apparently, they were waiting for me to ask.

    Can Peyton Manning throw 4 consecutive touchdowns?

  37. Turnover!

  38. The undisputed owners of “can’t win the big one” are the Minnesota Vikings.

  39. This is embarrassing. I’m’a go watch a Flipper rerun.

  40. Although Buffalo is probably in the running.

  41. It really is the second 70’s isn’t it.

    Has Obama given his “Malaise Speech” yet?

  42. Well, I was satisfied with this SB when Bill Belicheat and Lady Brady were eliminated. May scowls and tears possess them until training camp opens.

  43. >Can Peyton Manning throw 4 consecutive touchdowns?<

    make it 5

  44. Has any team failed to score in a Super Bowl? We might have history made tonight.

  45. And the Chrysler rolls actual Dylan out? Damn!

    If only Chrysler made cars as well as they make Super Bowl ads.

  46. I’m with serr8d; having the Patriots eliminated was good enough for me.

  47. Envy is unbecoming, serr8d.

  48. “If only Chrysler made cars as well as they make Super Bowl ads. ”

    How they make cars is their prerogative. A matter of fiat you might say.

  49. Aaaaaand the Broncos avoid the shutout. That’s about as good as it gets for them now.

  50. Bronco is on the board at least. And they did a run back for 2.

    36-8

  51. Heh, Pablo. But not many coach – QB combinations have earned such well-deserved derision.

  52. A pig-cow that goes “Moink” ? Really Jack in the Box? This is worse than your damned pumpkin shake.

  53. updated with an image currently being passed around on Facebook.

  54. Great play Adrian. Enjoy your Coke you selfish a-hole.

  55. I was hoping Manning could win one more ring and then retire, not because I don’t like the guy, but because he is getting too old for the game.

  56. Somebody forgot to let the Bronco’s Mom’s feed them Chunky soup before the game.

  57. Kearse is going to be on some cereal boxes after tonight. Or some form of advertising.

  58. Maybe he’ll fade away, cranky.

    And GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAL Seahawks.

  59. Re-captioned:
    “One more giggle from you Eli and I’ll wallop you good!”

  60. that last “injury” looked like an excuse for some more tv ads

  61. At 9 I’m switching over to Sherlock.

  62. That was “Crazee” Sherman. No post game rants for you this time.

  63. I think my cat must be a Denver fan.

    He just puked up his guts all over the carpet.

  64. I also seem to be seeing a “reunite cast members from defunct comedies” theme in the commercials.

  65. I just stumbled across the White House’s office twitter pic in honor of the Super Bowl..

    A pic of Obama attempt to throw a football.

    Really. (see above)

  66. Peyton has donned the “Peyton Sulk®©”.

  67. Darleen, that pic on the Wahn is ‘shopped, too.

  68. He looked more believable with Biden’s shotgun.

  69. the “super bowl” is a fraud of crony rent seekers

  70. If somebody could photoshop in the skeet shooting shotgun into that Obama “notices and blesses foot the ball” pic, that would be great.

  71. Let’s yammer about legacy now. Why not? There is nothing else to talk about except the stink of fail.

  72. What the people are, he is! For he truly IS the Kwizatz Haderqach! (Cue Foreigner music, rain starts to fall, Sting notices that he has a dagger jammed into his lower jaw and frowns)

  73. Two and half more minutes of this fish-gutting.

  74. Worst. Super Bowl. Ever. (That is, if you’re a Denver fan.)

  75. Cripes. All I’ve heard all game is Broncos this and Broncos that.

    All while they’re getting their asses kicked six ways to Sunday.

  76. Oh Go Daddy. All your commercials are such moldy dog crap. You couldn’t transgress your way out of a light pocket of filo dough.

  77. “Chrysler 200. America’s Import.”

    That is depressing.

  78. The Seahawks nearly got a Superbowl shutout. They are playing cold blooded methodical samurai butcher style football. They are writing a damned book tonight.

  79. Hands like Velcro. Arms like rocket launchers.

  80. From Twitter:

    @wupton BREAKING: NFL admits Broncos actually stuck in Denver. NY Jets are wearing Broncos jerseys, playing in #SuperBowl

    @politicalmath I was about to start riding my dog & lassoing my brothers Doritos when I saw the “do not attempt” warning. Close call.

    @pourmecoffee The Clydesdales are like, “We’re not Broncos, they’re totally different horses, just so everyone’s clear.”

    @mygunculture Why does the NFL insist on using the term “World Champions?” It’s not like teams from Micronesia have a chance anyway.

    @KurtSchlichter Flash: The French army of May 1940 is laughing at Denver right now. #caring #SuperBowl

    @KurtSchlichter Seattle is Aragorn. Denver is an army of orcs. #caring #SuperBowl

    ?@Ristolable Tonight America learned that the only thing worse than listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers is looking at the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    ?@djtechchicago I was smart and placed my bet on the White House commemorating the Super Bowl with a photo of Obama. Someone’s havin’ Red Lobster tomorrow.

    ?@delrayser Viewers outraged that network did not cut away from Super Bowl to air “Heidi.”

    @datachick It appears that the Broncos misunderstood “highest score” prolly due to new legislation.

    @seanmdav Gotta hand it to Denver: their reenactment of the Obamacare rollout is pretty amazing.

    K-nuff

  81. And now we have to cram in all the commercials that didn’t make it in during the game…

  82. Now shipping a boatload of “Denver: Super Bowl Champions” t-shirts to third-world nations everywhere.

  83. If somebody could photoshop in the skeet shooting shotgun into that Obama “notices and blesses foot the ball” pic, that would be great.

    Here you go, paleo. )

  84. di

    I spent sometime watching the “Time Warner Cable” twitter timeline since all the Southern California customers got blacked out for an hour.

    It was Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties as far as I could tell

    Man, if the pink slips weren’t delivered tonight, they should be tomorrow morning …

  85. Hahahahaha!

    Bobby Jindal on Facebook:

    At least we turned the lights out in New Orleans last year to make it interesting. #kidding

  86. at least i helped ship the steel for that stadium.

  87. - That lowly 8 points probably saved Vegas a few million. Lord knows they didn’t have much else to smile about.

  88. Anyone know if the Broncos have petitioned Governor Christie for asylum yet?

  89. ?@delrayser Viewers outraged that network did not cut away from Super Bowl to air “Heidi.”

    – Great NFL cultural reference, but I doubt anyone under 50 has a clue.

  90. Cripes. All I’ve heard all game is Broncos this and Broncos that.

    All while they’re getting their asses kicked six ways to Sunday.

    Meanwhile, Jim Irsay sits at home with his miniature giraffe and smiles…

  91. - Best “I don’t believe they actually did that” moment in the Ads: When the guy drops a big dollup of cream on his crotch and grins at the gal.

  92. The Seahawks nearly got a Superbowl shutout. They are playing cold blooded methodical samurai butcher style football. They are writing a damned book tonight.

    I’ve already heard it put as 21st-century vs. 20th-century football.

    No doubt a lot of teams in the NFL have taken notice. Question is, has Denver?

  93. That poor giraffe.

  94. The writers of Sherlock are obviously doing more drugs than old Sir Arthur did.

  95. no spoilers, Pala … hasn’t aired here in SoCal yet.

  96. At this point, if Sherlock pulled his head off, and set it on the table and revealed he was really a robot from Titan, built by the dinosaurs, 67 million years ago, to study why chicken eggs are round on one end and pointy at the other, then I’d just pretty much nod and accept it as par for the course.

  97. Looks like the shootings have already started.

  98. “Police said the suspect took off on foot. A description of the suspect has not been released.”

    – Except for the pile of torn Broncos bet slips there wasn’t a sign of violence.

  99. >A description of the suspect has not been released.<

    due to marxist considerations

  100. - Hildebeast proves yet again she should stay the fuck off twitter:

  101. Hildebeast proves yet again she should stay the fuck off twitter

    The only time I want to hear anything from her is under oath.

  102. >The only time I want to hear anything from her is under oath.<

    what diff dude?

  103. Exactly, nr. She will lie under oath just like any other time. That’s one of the many things she and her hubs have in common.

  104. Yeah that was more of an hallucination than an actual Sherlock episode. It’s still entertaining but it’s trying to hard and asking me to swallow too much too fast. It’s stunt writing appealing to crazy fan instincts more than being true to itself. Sherlock is heading off in the Dr Who direction. It’s left what little of the ground it touched.

  105. “trying to hard” -> trying too hard

  106. - Hildebitch and Bumblefuck have, and still are, been running some kind of fucking Kumbaya sell-out scheme with the Muslims ever since just before he took office, and Benghazi was a part of it, and Syria, and who knows what else. They prove that everytime they run interference for Iran.

  107. I guess what I’m trying to say is that if you shake things up ALL the time then you never shake anything up because there is nothing to shake. Shaking is the ground state. It’s very hard to write a coherent show entirely about the shaking, instead of the stuff being shaken, especially when it has to have lots of false omniscient narration elements to throw viewers off, and “do your trick that we all like” moments. The shaking in more and more extreme ways becomes an unstable and unhealthy focus for the writer and audience both, and the show becomes kind of alienating. It devolves into a guilty pleasure that you have to gin up excuses for and address with sections of your brain turned off, to enjoy. It’s not quite porn but it’s akin to it.

    Dr Who now essentially talks smack to a space god,using his wacky voice, or a long time recurring enemy, or a demon, or a fleet of alien warships and every time he does it gets a little bit less interesting. The daleks only show up to wave their plungers around, remind us of how scary they are supposed to be, and then get their asses kicked as the Doctor flicks the go away switch and mugs to his companions. Or maybe he breaks an unbreakable law of time, just this once, again. Maybe his future self lets him out of an inescapable trap which allows him to go back at some future point and let himself out. Or he suffers a “tragedy” with soap bubbles all over it, that he seemingly could and would have easily overcome in a previous story, just because and plasters over it with techno-babble or even a blow off that mocks techno-babble. It becomes rote instead of audacious or clever. It’s so much a trope that stuff happens as it does”just because” that we are told about it in a joking way. There is no consistent simulation of causality to maintain. Everything is wibbley-wobbley timey-whymey stuff adjusting itself spontaneously as necessary to explain the Doctor jumping through the hoops that the writers think will scratch the audience’s various itches.

  108. Exactly, nr. She will lie under oath just like any other time. That’s one of the many things she and her hubs have in common.

    Acknowledged. I remain optimistic, however, that at some point a prosecutor might actually re-discover the concept of perjury.

    Most likely right after someone decides Ms. Clinton has out-served her usefulness, which may be sooner than any of us suspect…

  109. Yeah that was more of an hallucination than an actual Sherlock episode.

    No joke.

    ONE of the plot twists was OK (there’s something about Mary), but the rest of the camera angles and in-the-mind-vault stuff took up too much time.

    Also, there was no mystery: no whodunnit, no question to answer or details to notice to solve it all. Just a lot of unfolding, almost to fill in the time.

    Also, vote for Harold Saxon.

    And I’m just hearing that the actors who played The Parents Holmes are actually the parents Cumberbatch (Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham). Interesting that neither chose to use “Cumberbatch” as stage names.

  110. I seem to be behind on my memes.

    What’s “Omaha! Omaha!”

    Which Coke commercial has people’s panties in a wad?

  111. Wanda Ventham played Colonel Virginia Lake in the tv series UFO. I know that only because one of my friends was a huge Gerry Anderson nerd and made me watch HORRIBLE PAL VHS recordings of that show on his PAL TV which he ran with some kind of crazy voltage adapter that was always dying on him.

  112. “Omaha” is an audible that Peyton Manning was repeatedly calling out for some reason or other. People started joking about it.

    Coke had two questionable commercials.

    One had kids and people of varying backgrounds singing “America the Beautiful” in multiple languages. Because we like NEED that moral lesson that like America is not a white english speaking protestant male Christer-only club. Despite having heard it constantly throughout my 42 year lifetime from Schoolhouse rock, my own family, sesame street, the muppets, etc. So it’s an annoyingly and provocatively preachy manipulative ad that kind of misses the whole point of America being the melting pot where people assimilate to more of a nebulous “America is like a dish of mixed candies” sort of thing. Also we get to be the one nation without borders because like Coca Cola n’ shit. Because we hates the tricksy foreigners and stuff.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8iM73E6JP8

    The second commercial has a kid put into a kid’s maybe Jr High football game off the bench. He has to be reminded to put his helmet on. The MEAN starting players tell him not to mess this up again. Every single player gets tangled up in a ridiculous pile of arms and legs and he ends up with the ball. Everyone tells him to run. They start cheering for him. So he runs past the goal post, huffing out “color commentary” for himself, leaves the football field, head’s down the road through some bushes, a garden wall, some buildings and into an empty Green Bay stadium where he uselessly hits the end zone THERE and spikes the ball. During this the music playing is House of Pain’s “Jump Around”. The kid “Adrian” jumps around, and lays on the turf. A grounds keeper on a mower sees the kid acting stupid in a football uniform, and gives him a coca cola. In a glass bottle. He never bothers to score the easy touchdown in the game he was actually put into. Little jerk.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKi2wjELK6A

  113. “Omaha” is an audible that Peyton Manning was repeatedly calling out for some reason or other. People started joking about it.

    Here’s why. The Denver airport had the gates for flight to that destination marked “Omaha!” the other day. Back when hope was alive.

  114. Peyton Manning Suicide Watch, Day 1: He’s OK. For now.

  115. Obama did his own commercial for the Super Bowl.

    …not even a smidgeon of corruption…

  116. Thank God the Niners hadn’t won the NFC.

  117. geoffb, yeah, it’s “not even a smidgeon of corruption” it’s a freaking tanker fleet of corruption.

    I heard part of the interview and the lies Obama told were absolutely enraging.

    Yet, Obama supporters will always fall back on “Oh yeah? Well, your guy did it too.” Or, they just claim that Benghazi and the IRS scandal are just political and nothing more.

  118. Or, they just claim that Benghazi and the IRS scandal are just political and nothing more.

    – One of these fine days I have a feeling that, in spite of the whore medias best efforts, the truth is going to come floating to the surface. Best possibility for that is one of the families of the abandoned dead refusing to be bought off.

    – Hope it happens before the Beast gets a shot at POTUS.

  119. With respect to that last picture, it really is all about him, isn’t it.

    As for Peyton Manning, he is tied with Tim Tebow for playoff wins per year as a Bronco.

    I’m wondering if the NFL hasn’t jumped the shark. Roger Goodell seems really tone deaf in so many ways.
