    War Eagle! At present we’re 3-0. We play LSU in a few hours.

    WAR PLAY-YOUR-GUTS-OUT-AND-DON’T-QUIT EAGLE!

  2. Bitwhacker says:

    So who woulda thunk it? Lowly little Lehigh University knocks off NCAA mega-superstars Duke and the vaunted Coach K! HA!

    (The only downside is that i have a bunch of friends from Lehigh who are gloating right now and they will ride this one win forever…)

    The IRON DOG 2012 has begun. Today is day 2. Team 11, Palin/Davis is currently in 9th place.

    Run, Todd, run!

    THUDDDD!

    It appears that we have won the Chik-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. This is our fifth bowl win in a row. War Eagle!

  5. Jemian says:

    Panthers over the Falcons 27 – 7 at the half. War CAM Eagle!

  6. Jemian says:

    I haven’t commented here in a while. Let’s see. Bama did beat us. We’re going to some bowl on New Year’s Eve. Geaux Tigers and wipe their faces into the ground!

  7. Jemian says:

    War Eagle! We did win tonight. I prefer it that way.

  8. Jemian says:

    Well, we’re getting our clock cleaned. Congratulations, Fighting Tigers of LSU.

  9. Jemian says:

    War Eagle! 17 – 6 over Florida. We have just about 30 seconds to go. Florida is a tough opponent.

  10. Jemian says:

    It looks like Arkansas is winning. Congratulations, Razorbacks.

    I’ll be heading to bed just after the game.

  11. Jemian says:

    Just for the record, we won.

  12. Nita says:

    Damn Yankees need to get their stuff together.

  13. 4littlebears says:

    I have just one question? How does one watch this dribble with an 86 y.o. father and enjoy it? He asked why do they have these people on tv? ROTFLOL!!

  14. Nita says:

    Packers won. Now on to BASEBALL. GO WAR YANKEE EAGLES>

  15. Jemian says:

    Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers!

    And the game….what about the game???

    Goodness….bad week altogether in the Big D it sounds like

      OH! I almost forgot: The GAME!!! 😉

      Well, the Packers have capitalized on 2 turnovers and went out to a 21-10 lead at the half. The Steelers are charging back in the 3rd Qtr with a touchdown, but missed a 56-yd field goal.

      Lots of injuries, especially on defense and special teams: Packers lose Woodson with a collarbone injury, Driver with an ankle, Shields with a shoulder. Steelers lose WR Sanders with a foot injury.

      Looks like the Packers might be waking up here in the late 3rd Qtr, but they keep getting stupid penalties and just lost an appeal on an incomplete ruling… 😉

    SuperBowl Commercials: Overall, really bad, too.

    Really, really REALLY disappointed by all the Bud Lite commercials. They just suck out loud. The Escape the Bonds of Luxury one was just over the top bad.

    The one with Rosie O’Donnell wasn’t bad.

    The Cooper Mini was a bad play on words on the meaning of the word ‘boot’. I mean, really? You can’t do better than that?

    The E-trade babies suck this year, even having moved into the Fox pre-game as Terry, Howie and Michael Strahan stand-ins (with Jimmah Johnson off playing golf). Just not watchable.

    Had a glimmer of hope on the commercial with 1984 in the beginning, with everyone but one guy wearing white hoodies and ear plugs. Thought it was a clever Apple play on their 1984 SB commercial, but nah, it was just a stupid Motorola iPad-alike commercial.

    Pepsi Max? Fugeddaboudit.

    Go Daddy with Joan Rivers: Not bad, as far as funny-with-surprise-factor goes.

    • Bitwhacker says:

      Best ones:

      Little Darth Vader starting the VW after all else failed.

      Coke commercials: The Trojan Dragon that caused the attacker’s dragon to flame out, and the Two Sentries commercial where they have to change the front line to give each other a Coke.

      AND: The bears who ‘go to McDonalds’ by shaking down a tourist’s car is not bad.

      BUT: These Groupon commercials where they make fun of serious subjects (Cuba Gooding with whales and Tim Hutton with Tibet) are tasteless.

      Stella Artois: losers.

      And Simon Cowell can go suck an egg.

    • Bitwhacker says:

      And that’s the SECOND Eminem sighting for the afternoon! The first was some kind of cartoon energy drink stream of consciousness thing that was actually not bad; the second one was a Chrysler commercial that wasn’t earth-shattering but wasn’t Fergie-scale suckosity, either. (Did I mention that I think Fergie needs a makeover? HA! 😉 )

    • Bitwhacker says:

      Bud Light finally has a good one: Beer tending dogs!

      The ‘Big rear end’ car commercial wasn’t bad.

      Pepsi Max had a good one but I can’t explain it on this forum… 😉

  18. Nita says:

    Half time show sucked in a major way.

    Can’t believe what they did to “Sweet Child of Mine”

    And the choreography..i mean really, who’s idea was that? Dancing around with lite Brites.

    SuperBowl XLV — 06 Feb 2011!!!

    The line on the Steelers: Injuries, injuries, injuries. The center is getting his first pro start — and it’s in the Super Bowl. And, Troy P. (I dare YOU to spell it) may not be up to it.

    The line on the Packers — They can’t run the ball, and it will be interesting to see whether Aaron Rodgers can handle the pressure.

    Most interesting comment: Cowboys Stadium described as The Death Star. 😉

    • Bitwhacker says:

      I do have to say, even with the unnecessary embellishments, Christina A did a great job… made the Mouseketeers proud… 😉

    • Nita says:

      I’m watching but only because when this game is finished that means there are only 19 days left till the Yankees FIRST SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL GAME!!!

      And it was a bea-u-ti-ful 40+ degrees out today.

    • Jemian says:

      Mozart Lover, if you can read this out there in ether space, I am cheering for the Pack today. Even though I spent my very early childhood in a town just outside of Pittsburgh, you have persuaded me to be a cheesehead tonight.

      Half-time show report:

      Well, it wasn’t the same dried-prune, has-been, ain’t-been-seen-since-1981 hanger-on band performance (they having all moved on to judge jobs on American Idol or drunk-on-the-floor reality shows), it was a soon-to-be-has-been band Black Eyed Peas with the insufferable Fergie having at it. Almost as insufferable were the Tron-alike extras all over the field, changing colors from green to red to white to psychodelic, epilepsy-inducing tricolore brilliance at the finale.

      One question: Why have Guns n’ Roses’ lead guitarist perform Sweet Child O’ Mine without Axel Rose? Fergie went overboard yet again on this number, too, while the guy never looked up from his guitar. (He did look a little bit out of sorts as he appeared up through the stage, however.)

      Usher was ultra-good, almost like he was airlifted, Seal Team 6-style, to save this half-time tragedy of terpsichore. He had to wonder what the hell he parachuted (or, rather, got lowered) into.

      Only on (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life did Fergie do a decent job. And the blinking, black-leather outfits? At least they didn’t appear to leave too much fireworks debris after this flameout. 😉

      The half-time show was just junk. Pure yuck.
