As you can see my ESPN colleagues... are still gutless--
Now, here is my run down on who I want... to win the whole ball of wax:
#1. While Denver is not really my cup of tea, I like Mile High Manning's... sense of humor.
What's not to.... like a?
#2. The constant "Brady, Brady, Brady!" kiss ass love rant by the media gets my goat... but it would make big's day.
Pleasing big is my number one priority... when my wife not horny.
#3 The Seahags are not the Deadskins... but they truly have the arrogant potential--
Hey, our poop smells... like fresh brewed Caffè Mocha Espresso with bittersweet mocha sauce. steamed milk, topped with sweetened whipped creamand with just a smokey hint of cinnamon!
#4 Even if Nancy Pelosi wasn't from San Fran... I'd still have plenty of seething hate for the Bozs from the Bay.
Niners! Niners! Niners... Niners!
Okay, y'all get your picks... in while there is still time to place a bet in Vegas.
The last NFL LIVE Thread you just had to rub it in that your show won an Emmy.... while "Futurama" and I were passed over again, again, and again for all those years--
Well, at The Golden Globes last Sunday night... I got some payback!
Amy got Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy while I got... Best Actor in a NFL LIVE Thread, Comedy - Drama - Musical.
"I never would have thought that I'd win Best Actor for a comedy... as I am not a comedian at all. Now, Bender, he is a great comedian. He is the All Time World Champion of Comedy and NFL LIVE Threads!"
Yes, I am... drinking heavily again--
But when you are around Bendy... you have to!
The evening was not all fun and games as Jennifer got really, really pissed at me... when she thought I was about to goose Taylor on the Red Carpet--
And I slipped off to use the facilities... and how was I to know?
That the sewage pipes... were broken!
At the Sci-Fi after hours party... Bill congratulated me on my win.
And you'd think I'd know not to play poker with dogs... and Wookies--
However Chewy did confirm he and Carrie Fisher had a torrid love affair... on the set of the first Star Wars.
But it cooled off after Chewy caught Carrie... screwing around with C3P0 behind his back--
Chewy also said they cut from the first film several scenes showing how he and Han Solo first got together... on a time travel mission.
And Chewy also has some inside dope on the new Star Wars: Episode VII that they would have a major new... villain.
He showed me a still from the opening scene with Han... and Leia.
And, Chewy added, they are going in a different direction... with a rebooted follow on to the Boba Fett character--
A new, young rebellious Jedi... character not afraid to be different--
And the Stormtroopers... are being updated for a more proactive feminine presence.
And I toast... George and the Disney people for this new direction!
Isn't it great, Rick... them putting gratuitous sex, violence and heavy drinking back into Science Fiction and Fantasy where it belongs?
Yes, if you like gratuitous sex, violence and heavy drinking... and I do like it--
Just so you know, Bendy, Statler... and I are all for it, too!
The whole Disney Family falling right in line as Snow White... and the Seven Dwarfs pull all nighters to keep their new film on schedule--
I may have new info on myself and Star Wars but for now, I am keeping it... on the QT--
So, I have no comment on the current posters... out there.
Sunday night I guarantee that Peyton Manning will (once again) be weeping into his pillow.
I love Manning and hate the Patriots and I will be rooting for the Broncos...BUT - I think you’re right and if I had to bet on the game I’d bet the Patriots. (depending on the spread) Do you know what the spread is and who is favored? I’d probably handicap the teams as equal and give the home team the traditional three point home field advantage.
Whiners over the Seahags.
Patriots over the Dolts.
Well, are you fer him... or agin' him?
We all know... there is no in between--
“Whiners over the Seahags.
Patriots over the Dolts.”
Patriots over the Piled High Ponies.
Sorry bout that, Chief!
The odds makers are saying the 49ers over the Seahawks by 3.5 points.
Sep 15: Seahawks 29, 49ers 3 (game held in SEA)
Dec 8: 49ers 19, Seahawks 17 (game held in SFO)
Total those numbers up and you have
Seahawks 46 and the 49ers 22.
With the upcoming game being played in SEA why are the odds makers favoring the 49ers?
Oddsmakers favor the side that has the most money bet on the outcome, not who they believe will win (or cover the spread).
If the odds favor the 49ers, that means there is more money supporting the 49ers than is supporting the Seahawks.
Vegas books come out with an "outlaw line" a few days before the release the offical line for the first time. They allow a few of their best customers, smartest gamblers, to bet the line...it show them if the're way off..and they adjust it accordingly..
Seattle didn't finish the regular season well..true, they had nothing to play for..but the 49er's really look hot..and Kapernick's viewed as a Brady+ Manning with a great set of wheels..
Another reason for the Seahawks to win.
Pete Carroll doesn’t need to win anything.
DEN & SEA are favorites
1/19 3:00 ET At Denver -4.5 New England
1/19 6:30 ET At Seattle -3.5 San Francisco
Thanks for clearing that up. I was reading it wrong!
I’m officially calling it for both home dogs.
Superbowl could be coldest in more than 5o years, says meteorologist
Seattle win by 4 pts.
Denver win by 5 pts.
Check that. I’m calling it for both home teams: Seattle and Denver.
And you’ll see the collectivist media declare it’s our fault!
I’m calling it Ducks and Pats in the SB.
Or Whiners V Denver...
either way, I expect one and only one home loss this weekend.
Should be good no matter what happens!
Badly titled article considering they link to this title
Joe Bastardi Forecasting That The Superbowl Could Be Coldest Weather In 50+ Years
Even without checking their standings or depth chart, I can say with confidence that Seattle is not likely to win the Super Bowl.
For that matter, neither are Philadelphia, Baltimore, Arizona, or Atlanta. In fact, in 46 Super Bowl match-ups from 1967 to 2012, only once has a football team named for a bird emerged victorious in the championship game. The Baltimore Ravens crushed my beloved New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV (2001) to become footballs finest feathered franchise. Teams named for Homo sapiens just do better in this game. In an astonishing 33 of 46 contests, an organization named for a meat (not cheese) packer, chieftain, cowpoke, steel worker, indigenous American, gold miner, U.S. nationalist, servant of a deity, oversized individual, or some species of pirate has won it all.
>>Will it snow at the Super Bowl?<<
If it does, the NFL-issued dresses on the QBs and wideouts will just freeze their little tushies off.
Is it just me or does it seem that actors who just aged looked so much better than ones who try to hang onto their youth?
Maybe because the older generation had something unheard of -- elegance.
BTW how much tokin will take place in the mile high stadium?
Have to go with The Hoodie and Tom over Manning- 38-21. Seattle over SF- 31-28. And so it is done.
To me, Alec... aged much better that... Mark--
And Re: Is it just me or does it seem that actors who just aged looked so much better than ones who try to hang onto their youth?
First, you cannot 'thread drift' on any thread I originally post if you talk about the crap I like... Like films, TV, sci-fi, old movie stars, new movies stars I like, hot babes and just for general effect, hot babes again!
Now, I have 'post drifted' enough on your dime and to get back to your point, I was always a Burt Reynolds fan, recalling as a 12-year old seeing him in the old original 1959 "Riverboat" TV series with Darren McGavin. I remember seeing him in the 1963 "Twilight Zone: The Bard" episode where his character, Rocky Rhode, was a very funny takeoff on Marlon Brando method acting.
The times when I was out in Hollywood I occasionally got a glimps of him at events, once on set of one of his later Dan August TV Movies and at a red light when he pulled up besides me on Santa Monica Boulevard around the early 1980s time he was making City Heat with Clint Eastwood.
So I have watched him through his other TV series and then into films where he because a movie star and then finally back to TV in 1990-94 "Evening Shade." Always enjoyed his acting even in some of the occasional stinkers he did--
Then one morning after some time had passed (1995? 96? 97?) I happened to see him on "Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee" and the facelift was more than evident.
Gadzooks, I recall cringing in almost physical pain as I looked at Burt!
I still can feel that pain whenever I see anything Burt has done since that morning with Regis and Kathie Lee.
All I can say it is is very, very sad and he must have been very insecure to have that done. That is the little talked about fact that many, if not most celebrities, are terribly insecure and nothing like the characters they portray in films, TV, play or whatnot--
Anyway, all I can add is I am above that type of insecurity except for this old ballcap. Does it make me... look fat?
And I am not... talking about the teams playing the game.
The world will certainly be watching Seattle and Denver go at it ... how could terrorists resist such a juicy target?
Maybe so, but I've made a buck or two... off Mile High Manning this year--
I can live... with the Pats winning--
But the... Niners?
I ever so much hope... NOT!
1/19 3:00 ET At Denver -5 New England underdog
1/19 6:30 ET At Seattle -3.5 San Francisco underdog
We agree... so the drinks are on you--
Take the home team and give the points.
Oh I am sure, those Colorado Libs in control will not allow... pot smoking in Mile High--
However, electronic tokin'... will probably be allowed--
But I prefer old fashioned... beer!
Don't forget the wine, Bendy! Don't... forget the wine!
You? You there, rider! Get it right! "So it shall be written.... Then so it shall be done!
Gadzooks, al! Don't piss off Rameses... he's bringing the beer and belly dancers Super Bowl Sunday!
Gadzooks, MHG?! Have you seen... what the tickets are selling for? The terrorists could never afford it.
At least that is what... the official line from the White House is since Al Qaeda was on the run
Get used to suckin down that Napa valley whine!!
Gonna be tough. K is on a roll....
Gadzooks, you Niners fans... have a one tracked mind--
And he spelled 'wine' completely... wrong.
Maybe 'Napa valley whine" is an old acquaintance... of his--
I'd say djf had steel balls... ... to say that out loud.
But I don't want to get the LGBT bunch on my tail-- Eh... make that back-- Eh-- Eh--
Oh hell... I'm screwed--
Just like when I ran over... my own towline.
>>Does it make me... look fat?<<
You look like crap old man... ;)
Hey, Red-- All Polebot Dancer money... is set aside for PolebotDdancers--
And Polebot Dancers... alone!
Hey, I’m in Seattle.
We hate them sixty niners!!
If our Duck defense is on a roll and gets an early goal line or red zone stop, or gets a turnover, it’s GAME OVER!!! Seattle to the SB!!
