I think the Three Stooges came back to perform in this Super Bowl, wearing Rams uniforms.



And because of that, the world has to put up with another year of insufferable Pats fans!

Tom Brady this, Tom Brady that. As far as I'm concerned the guy is a flash in the pan. He still has to prove himself.

Edelman said it. "Better an ugly win than a pretty loss."

The QB ratings combined didn't total anywhere near the maximum possible rating. Ugly, indeed.

The Worst People Win Again

Quote:
They’re all happy. The President is happy because he’ll get to “treat” his favorite pet title team to a buffet of White Castle and brag online about how he’s played golf with 60 percent of them. Julian Edelman is happy because he has an MVP and now has license to ride Tom Brady’s coattails all the way to the fucking grave, where he’ll be buried alive alongside him. Gronk is happy because Gronk is always happy and that’s supposed to make ME happy even though his act wore thin 67 injuries ago. He’s now free to retire and go star in direct-to-Netflix chopsocky movies that will prove even duller than what transpired last night. Jon Bon Jovi is happy, which is too bad because his band is fucking awful.


Quote:
I wish I could tell you football haters that last night’s debacle represents the league’s death knell—a watershed of monotony that turns even the league’s diehards away for good. But I know better. The NFL was built on this exact kind of lie. They toot their horn about parity and equality and level payrolls and all that nonsense, and at the end of the season it’s the same cadre of rich assholes standing on a dais, further enriched. It’s the worst of America all over again. The NFL hates equality and believes, on principle, that it should be knocked right out of you. Only the terrible people get to feel good. Everyone else gets laid out on the ground.

And as much as the NFL claims to abhor its own violence, it’s more than willing to stand over you when you’re down and sneer at you for being too weak. Fuck them, fuck the Patriots, and fuck all the terrible people right off the side of the Earth.

Super Bowl Ratings Hit 10-Year Low In Historic NFL Game & Patriots’ Win

Quote:
However, when it comes to ratings, Super Bowl LIII is not one anyone’s going to want to brag about. Shown on CBS for the first time since 2016 and with ad spots going for around $5 million each, the Rams’ loss scored a 44.9/68 in metered market results.

To put that in the starkest light of day, that’s a dip of more than 5% from Super Bowl LII February 4, 2018 on NBC in the first round of ratings. On a larger playing field and amidst a call for a boycott of the game due to the league’s “racist” treatment of Colin Kaepernick, Sunday’s metered market result is the worst the Super Bowl has done in the early numbers since the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals on February 1, 2009.

I assume this is an expression meaning more competing TV shows. The actual gridiron was the same size as at every NFL game.

For a Paul Newberry column on what a dreadful game this was, I just put in a caption that Gladys Knight was the most thrilling thing about last night.

Feeling a little sassy today.

I do like me some defense, and got what I wanted.

If you love or hate Tom Brady or like thinking about the league, you might like Mark Leibovich's Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times. I felt like I understood Brady better after reading it, even though he is not the sole focus. You get a good feel for a lot of the owners as well, and what shitheads a lot of them are (makes the 2-3 good guys stand out).

I think the Times Picayune in NOLA summed that game up best with their front page on Monday.
A completely blank page with only five words:


Super Bowl?

What Super Bowl?

That sums up the feelings for everyone in the Who Dat Nation.
