Who can forget the Seattle Seahawks coming out to the Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony at Super Bowl XL? You knew they were going to lose as soon as you heard the song. Who comes out to a song like that? They might as well have run out while Peabo Bryson blasted from the speakers. Yah Mo Be There, on the other hand, would have guaranteed victory.
The Seahawks and music fail go way back like BK’s and jheri curls. Check this disaster by the 1985 Seahawks called Locker Room Rock. It’s no Ram It but sweet baby jesus…
It’s nice to see that Mike Tice is as good at dancing as he is at scalping Super Bowl tickets. Off-brand Michael Jackson was down but where was Steve Largent? He was probably out slaying non-believers with Jim Zorn.
Needless to say, the Seahawks didn’t make the Super Bowl in 1985. The Super Bowl Shuffle came out on top while Locker Room Rock didn’t even warrant a shameful bronze.
Aw hell naw is right. In the words of the president himself, “It’s an outrage!” Supporting the Steelers doesn’t not inspire hope and change. Doesn’t Obama know that the Cardinals have Jesus on their side because Kurt Warner says so? If you say that I’m not pleased about this because I hate the Steelers, you would be correct. I am a non-purple camo pants wearing Ravens fan. However I despise them more because they played with our patron saint Najeh Trenadious Monté Davenport’s emotions by constantly cutting and resigning him. That’s some cold shit right there. Dookie should be tearing it up Ybor City with Chris Berman this week. I don’t know what it’s like to root for the Cardinals. No one does except Will Leitch and Neil Lomax’s mom. Maybe David Boston. However I’m going to see how it goes on Sunday.
Here’s hoping Hines Ward or Willie Parker get caught with a mercenary hooker from Reno a day before the game. If the Cardinals win, they should present a jersey to Vice-President Biden unless Obama makes him back the Steelers too. Wait he’s from Scranton. There’s always Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. DHS probably has a broom closet or handicapped bathroom stall they could use for the ceremony.
Stupid Ravens. Only if they still had Stoney Case or Elvis Grbac.
This is. The Steelers gutted the Chargers yesterday in the final playoff game of the weekend. The conference championship rounds are set, Philadelphia/Arizona and Baltimore/Pittsburgh. If defense wins championships, I think the deck is stacked for whomever wins the AFC to win the Super Bowl. Not to sleep on Philadelphia’s defense, but it is no comparison to Baltimore or Pittsburgh’s tenacious D. I think I would want to see Arizona’s high flying offense square off against the AFC brutes. That might make for an interesting Super Bowl Sunday…or a completely one-sided affair like most Super Bowls have been.
Tecmo bowl will never leave us, ever. These guys have whipped up a Tecmo Bowl representation of the last 2 plays that really counted from the Giants Super Bowl win. We’ve got Eli & David Tyree’s “The Play” or “The Escape” or “The Catch II” or whatever you want to call it, as well as Plaxico’s touchdown catch to give the Giants the win. All set, beautifully, to a Radiohead soundtrack. Well done peoples. You deserve an award. Not from us, but from someone that actually makes money off their website.
David Tyree is the real hero in this game. That jump ball catch, on 3rd and 5 with less than 1:15, to go, thrown by a scrambling for his life Eli Manning and caught on his head with Rodney Harrison draped all over him was one of the best moments in Super Bowl history. That play set up, what proved to be, the winning touchdown of the game just four players later with the Giants beating the Patriots 17-14. That says nothing of him catching the first touchdown pass of the game for the Giants and giving them a 10-7 lead. He played one great game but that catch will be remembered with some of the all time great plays of Super Bowls.
The video of it (while it’s up) is below, but here’s the quotes from some Giants and Patriots players, one coach and a brother that sums the catch all up:
“David Tyree, that’s all you have to say.” It was just a great catch by David Tyree. I found a way to get loose and just really threw it up. He made an unbelievable catch and saved the game.” – Eli Manning “Unbelievable, in Friday’s practice, he was dropping everything.” - Amani Toomer “I don’t know that there’s ever been a bigger play in the Super Bowl than that play.” – Tom Coughlin “He made a hell of a play.” – Asante Samuel “Eli’s pass to Tyree, I think, was one of the greatest plays of all time. You always see Swann’s catch.” Peyton Manning
