Obama Targets Football

January 28, 2013

The week before the Super Bowl, our President decided to give an interview with the New Republic in which he took aim at player safety in football: I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play [...]

There Will Be NFL Football

July 25, 2011

Today, word came out that the NFL team owners and the NFLPA have agreed to a contract through 2021. Phew!  And all it cost the fans was the meaningless Hall of Fame game! I’ve never been too concerned about the details of this conflict, except that I didn’t like the potential 18-game season (which is [...]

“Green Police” Commercial

February 8, 2010

Audi paid the big bucks for this commercial in last night’s Super Bowl in order to promote their “green” cars: To most it’s just Super Bowl silly, but I couldn’t help but think about a particular Liberal friend whose hyperactive about everything green.  I’m pretty sure that’s his perfect little Eco-Nazi world! Personally, while a [...]

They Spent $2.5 Million for THIS?

February 8, 2010

Our government is filled with incompetent people who have no regard for the taxpayer’s money and will waste it on ineffective, inconsequential drivel that accomplishes nothing.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at this ad for the U.S. Census that cost the taxpayers $2.5 million dollars, that aired during last night’s Super Bowl.

The $2.5 Million Government Superbowl Ad

February 3, 2010

Now, I know it’s a drop in the bucket of Obama’s $3.9 trillion budget, but if the Government is in the process of tightening the purse strings and cutting waste, why does the Census Bureau need to spend $2.5 million on a Superbowl ad to tell people to fill out their census forms?  That $2.5 [...]

New England Patriots inside linebacker Tedy Bruschi is set to announce today that after 13 seasons and 5 Super Bowls, it is finally time for him to retire.  Not only was Bruschi a class-act, but he was a critical part of the Patriots’ “bend-but-don’t-break” defense that carried the Pats to three Super Bowl victories in four years [...]

The Super Bowl “Flu” Epidemic

February 1, 2009

Long have there been calls to make Super Bowl Monday a holiday since absenteeism and productivity resulting from the Super Bowl “flu” can be costly: last year 4.4 million late-ins and an estimated 1.5 million extra absences were phoned in.  Some have also estimated that $16 million per minute lost during the week preceding the Super Bowl on people running [...]

NBC Bans Pro-Life Ad During Super Bowl

January 31, 2009

Here’s the ad in question.  I personally think it’s pretty awesome: NBC stated that it does not intend to air political advocacy ads during the Super Bowl.  That’s their prerogative.  Yet, they told PETA that they might get their ad on if they edited it to coincide with NBC’s ethical standards a little bit more, but on [...]

Where O Where will Dick Cheney Be?

August 5, 2008

Word is buzzing that Dick Cheney may not be invited to speak at the Republican National Convention.  A sitting two-term Vice President has never been snubbed by the incumbent party’s convention that I can think of in modern times.  I know that if Cheney doesn’t go it’ll be spun as his “choice” to help McCain, but [...]
