What was the highlight of the Super Bowl for you: San Francisco's near comeback, Ray Lewis' swan song, the Harbaugh faceoff, Beyonce, commercials, power outage?

Actually, I was watching the history channel.

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 5:54

It was just another football game but I enjoyed the advertisements. Many good laughs for the evening.

Good morning, Nashville.

All I can say is, "BEYONCE FOR POTUS"....who could say, "NO" to Beyonce? The high-voltage hottie sucked the power out of the New Orleans power grid. The smell of ozone wafted over the entire region. That woman could short circuit any man's wiring....she's America's secret weapon.

This should be right up yogi's alley...Ravens steamrolling the 9ers...looks like a blowout...suddenly the lights go out and, miraculously, the 9ers score 17 unanswered and make it a game.

Sounds like a conspiracy to me...lol

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 7:06

Yeah, Gd, they pulled the old switcheroo during the period of darkness...Kenyans with phony birth certificates usurped the jobs of the real 49ers and then they went on to almost win the game...the officials failed to vet the players after the mysterious outage....but here's the twist: The Ravens, actually Jihadists under cover, used Sharia Law to intimidate the officials into submission, thus they got the key penalty calls against the 49ers when they were needed. The Lombardi Trophy will now be taken to the Islamic Republic of Iran....and held hostage.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 7:10

I knew that Middle Eastern terrorists were involved with the conspiracy, when I spotted Beyonce's camel toe....that was the tip-off.

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 7:35

you might be right, gdiafante. No brother wants to beat the hell out of his brother so it looks like a "put up" deal to me.

Made it look good, didn't it? Damn, wait until next year, it's gonna be better.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 7:41

As for the SB ads....Collectively, all the Super Bowl ads this year.were substandard ...in my most humble of opinions.

None of these ads generated the kind of cultural impact that Clara Peller did, when she asked, "Where's the beef?" This year's SB ads lacked the beef that we have come to expect....more like canned Spam than genuine beef.

Here's Clara:

When did you become a fellow communist with Barry, Loner? What kind of deal did he offer you to think like he does?

I mean, you're an old ex-GI and you're ready to give up your guns. What Army was you in?

If having no guns would stop killings, why is DC and Chicago the two most deadly places in this nation to live.

If Barry's goal to let the UN take out guns is successful, you can kiss the USA goodbye. Look bad at the history I posted yesterday.

But as I've been saying "all the way down the road", Barry isn't in this game by himself. Congress is our biggest worry. There's been too much evidence brought up and congress is backing him all the way to his dictatorship.

Question: Why is the government buying so many millions of hollow point bullets? They'll be good for "exterminations", won't they?

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 7:52

I should also have asked; What oath did you take when you went in the Army, that you would be glad to give you gun to your enemy?

By: Rasputin72 on 2/4/13 at 7:57

I had some random thoughts as I waited through the power outage.

(1) Tattoos are repugnant
(2) 98% of the people with multiple tattoos voted for Barack Hussin Obama
(3) I wonder if among the 2% are the NFL football players who are in the 1%?

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:11

Kapernick had trick plays tattooed on his biceps and torso? During the power outage, he took off his jersey and reviewed his secret playbook....hence the miracle come-back.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:13

Troll Dropping Avoidance Mode engaged.....click.

By: gdiafante on 2/4/13 at 8:16

What Raspy really means...

1. Tattoos hurt...I would cry if I had to get one, but if I did, I would get a tramp stamp.

2. 98% of my thoughts are completely random and borderline insane. The other 2% are best described by the old saying about a broke clock being right twice a day.

3. I'm so obsessed with percentages that I am thinking of legally changing my name to "%" or, "the artist formerly known as Rapsutin".

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 8:18

I just read where Hillary is looking into running in 2016. Who in the hell would want someone like her in the White House after doing nothing for those men in that embassy?

Oh, I see where we have "gay" dogs in Tennessee. Did you bring them down here and drop them off, Loner?

It seems a man in Jackson wants his dog "eliminated" because he was "humping" another male dog. Funny; www.digitaljournal.com/article/342538/

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:20

The highlight of the SB was when Beyonce ripped off her black leather miniskirt, boldly threw it into the crowd and put her lace-clad, perfectly proportioned thighs on public display....that's when the original power surge occurred...it took a few minutes for the over-heated relays to short-out...it was a slow and sultry meltdown.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:24

Thank you, Gd, for the translation. I was a bit bumfuzzled by his assertion....now, it's crystal clear.

By: gdiafante on 2/4/13 at 8:24

Really, yogi. You just heard about Hillary in 2016...do you live under a rock?

Oh wait...

I saw that story about the idiot and the dog, yogi. Reason number 1,758,891 why Tennessee is thought of as the dumbass state.

You do realize that homosexuality is common in nature...


By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:27

We can laugh about it now, but that power outage could have led to a stampede for the exits....one idiot firing a gun or a drunk lighting a firecracker could have spooked the entire herd....it could have been the SB game that was never finished.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:34

The guy wanted to put down the gay dog, because he was jealous....it was an inter-species love triangle..... in Coonskin Cap country...."Squeal like a pig"....."Howl like a bitch"....rural love is "different" than urban love....Ben Dover was educating us the other day about urban versus rural values....this dovetails in with that.

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 8:41

You guys can ignore my posts all you wish, Loner, and you, too, gdiafante, but can either of you tell me why the Department of Homeland Security is buying millions of hollow point rounds and thousands of guns instead of the Defense Department?

Why did Obama comment he was willing to spend 439 billion dollars to build a "civilian" army in his 2009 inauguration speech. How many "enlistees" has he "recruited" so far?

Could it possibly be the guns and ammo the Dept. of Homeland Security is buying are for Barry's "civilian" army?

(1) Tattoos are repugnant
(2) 98% of the people with tattoos voted for Barack Hussein Obama
(3) I wonder if among the 2% are the NFL players who are in the 1%?
(4) I wonder how many of the simpletons and low incomers on this little forum have tattoos to go their political leanings?
(5) I wonder if anyone on this forum would be offended by my comments? Surely not, I said. The people on this forum must have some degree of self-respect for their bodies.

dumba$$, you couldn't even pass a spelling test, let alone a test of intelligence.
Want to try one? Check on google or bing and take a test.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/26/13 at 3:33
I took the test yogi and a made a 100.

By: yogiman on 1/26/13 at 7:30
I feel so humiliated, dumba$$, to get beat by an idiot as ignorant as you.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/26/13 at 9:53
That makes you the dumbest dumb ass

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 8:48

By: Rasputin72 on 2/1/13 at 3:37
NEMO, you buffoon! Thinking of you as a school teacher is like thinking of Charles Manson as a Priest.

Wrong again, Rasputin. A teacher I be(sic)not. This really must be getting to you,old boy. Not knowing who I am.

btw who said you could think, Raspy old boy.

By: Loner on 2/4/13 at 8:50


By: Rasputin72 on 2/4/13 at 8:53

NEMO, I appreciate your affirmation of the fact that you are a buffoon. Don't be offended by that. I would imagine that buffoonery has been a trademark of your life since childhood. Buffoonery is a growing entity in the United States of America today.

What’s happening?

Feel funny

Must replace batter for head.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:00

The only thing I am confirming is that you don’t have a clue. You’re phony “assets” or as plastic as your face….old boy.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:05

The troll licks his dog, and complains about gay dogs? Now how unnatural is that?

By: gdiafante on 2/4/13 at 9:18

Yeah...I think we've already addressed the non-issue with the hollow-point bullets, yogi. I know you don't remember because you ignore facts. But it was the story that had the NRA debunking it as a conspiracy theory.

As said it then and I'll say it now...when the NRA says you're nuts...you're freaking nuts.

By: BenDover on 2/4/13 at 9:19

I was watching the half-time show on a TV my friend had set up outside for smokers and when Beyonce came out I was like, "Good Lord at those hips!"... they were enormous... I sat there in awe wondering if she let herself go or something or if maybe curves are the new definition of 'hot' then it finally hit me that he had run a regular cable line out there instead of HD and that the aspect ratio was stretching Beyonce into beyond J-Lo proportions.

Good to know for society I guess... but bad for fat chicks as my horror of big hips becoming main-stream were mercifully short-lived. I finished watching the show inside in HD and it turns out she is as hot as everyone says.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:20

Raspy old boy, somewhere in that cloud of misty swirls you call a brain, there is a miss-connect from the reality we know as life. You never knew me in childhood (because I lived in a better part of Nashville). I have never been a teacher and you are a lonely clown.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:23

Life is good...Ben lol

By: gdiafante on 2/4/13 at 9:24

Ben, if you couldn't tell the difference between a normal and stretched aspect ratio before seeing her hips, you're blind.

ASKO1..........There is one thing that has never changed since the beginning of mankind.

Let the big dog eat!


Someday I will be a big dog too.

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 9:40

OK, gdiafante,

Let's drop the bullets issue. Why has Barry been working on his "civilian" army? Why is he reducing the number of the regular services?

I'll admit, one of us is a damn idiot and I don't think it's me.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:47

By: yogiman on 2/3/13 at 10:21
You guys are great comedians. I can't wait to see your reactions if Barry gets to fulfill his move to become dictator.

When that day comes yogi, you will see all our faces when they come and take you to the Labor Camp. We will be laughing at you.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 9:52

Yogi it is you that is the master idiot. Rasputin comes close, but for the time being your Lord and Master Idiot. Be proud of yourself.

Enough time wasted on the troll. Let’s move on to the commercials.

By: gdiafante on 2/4/13 at 9:56

Oh, I don't know, Yogi...perhaps a decade of fighting two wars, a very thin military, the fact that we're broke...I'm sure you can wrap that pointy little head around any of those, but I"m sure it's easier for a simplton to believe in conspiracies.

Then again...does the Constitution give authority to the President to raise, support and and regulate the military? Things that make you go hmmm...

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 10:01

Haven’t you learned that the troll lives in his dropping, gdia? Reason is alien to him.

By: BenDover on 2/4/13 at 10:08

I liked the Paul Harvey Farmer commercial... except the tractor wheels were shaped like eggs.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/4/13 at 10:11

The Tide Commerical was great. Go Ravens !

By: brrrrk on 2/4/13 at 10:46

How many weeks have I been gone? And yogi is still drooling at the mouth shouting "Usurper, Usurper!!!", Raspy still thinks he's the only person who works for a living, and Ben just bounces back and forth between the two?

I'm even even MORE confident that the GOP is the political equivalent of the buggy whip....

By: BenDover on 2/4/13 at 11:08

Ahhh... blow it out your @$$, brrrrk.

By: brrrrk on 2/4/13 at 11:13

BenDover said

"Ahhh... blow it out your @$$, brrrrk."

Well at least you're the classy one.....

By: yogiman on 2/4/13 at 11:17

Your favorite usurper is still in business, brrrrk. He's setting us up to have our guns confiscated through the UN so he can take place us under marshal law and take over as dictator.

Question: Why is he bankrupting the USA? Answer: So he can place us under marshal law and take over as dictator.

That is, if we let him. Hopefully, enough people aren't going to give our guns to the UN.

By: govskeptic on 2/4/13 at 11:42

Not only the longest Super Bowl, but Ms. Keyes rendition of the National Anthem
must have been the longest in history as well. Good game, good bet with
The Ravens and 4 points. Of course, the commentators pushed the no call
on the possible holding by the Ravens on SF receiver near the end of the game. Got to have controversy to discuss for a year, as if it would have automatically been caught and in bounds touchdown otherwise! Most of the high priced commercials weren't
that hot or memorable, other than the Dodge Ram-Paul Harvey one-just great.

By: slacker on 2/4/13 at 12:04

gov... the SF receiver's football civil rights were violated, he was held, & deprived of his right to catch the ball.
The Harbaugh bros. will argue about that non-call for the rest of their lives.

By: slacker on 2/4/13 at 12:14

The Republicans will win the White House again.

brrrrk, I've missed you.. where have you been? Visiting Amish country, in the slammer, temporary amnesia, trench foot, heart broken by psoriasis, got a life, none of my damn, nosy arse, business?
