"Good fighters and good boxers, they keep pounding away at the cut. We knew they would come after us."

Winners can cry. Losers? Suck it up.

Original Mike said...

BOO-rahh!!!

Anyone watch UFC on Saturday.

It turns out that good fighters can get it done w/ a quick kick to the head too.

But, this does make for an uninteresting fight when you're hanging w/ friends at a bar for the event.

It seemed like the fix might be in when the stripes called a phantom face mask that set the Steelers up at mid-field on their first possession of the second half. The game was rather poorly officiated, no matter what side you were rooting for, but that call was the most blatant. Five plays later the NFL have another closely contested Super Bowl. Thankfully they let the better team win.

Greg Hlatky said...

I thought you were talking about hockey.

Original Mike said...

Yeah, that was a bad call.

Kirby Olson said...

The half-time show was like a heavyweight fight, too, with journeymen boxers slugging it out one more time.

MadisonMan said...

Have I told you lately that the GREEN BAY PACKERS are the NFL Champions?

Pogo said...

Thank God they won.

Now we won't need to see anything about Brett Farvrreerrrre for awhile.

Original Mike said...

World Champions, MM.

Joaquin said...

Anybody but the Squeeeelers! Happy for Packers fans.

k*thy said...

They sure had that somethin', somethin' going on, didn't they?

Thanks, guys, for making this last Wisconsin January a whole lot of fun.

garaji mahal said...

Good analogy from MCarthy, because that is what GB does better than probably anyone. Exploiting matchups favorable to them, and beat you silly with it. They ran that poor Steeler nickel back out of the stadium yesterday that was in charge of Jordy Nelson.

E.M. Davis said...

All this violent rhetoric is killing me.

David said...

The QB Rogers replaced hasn't called him to offer congratulations. What was that guy's name? Anyway, Rogers says he does not expect to hear from what's his name.

Beta Rube said...

I think warring language is allowed in football, just not politics, unless you're a liberal and therefore for the children.

I'm surprised at how many lefty friends and relatives I have who are over the top Packer fans.

Winning and losing is determined mostly by merit and a little by luck, and there are no government controlled egalitarian outcomes.

Original Mike said...

"The QB Rogers replaced hasn't called him to offer congratulations. What was that guy's name?"

Brent Favre

traditionalguy said...

Isn't there an history trend that whenever the NFL team beats the AFC team in the Super Bowl the stock market goes up?

Trooper York said...

I don't know man. Brett seemed like the perfect Packer!

traditionalguy said...

Oops, I meant the NFC team.

Original Mike said...

Does that refer to the Strahan sack, Trooper?

Original Mike said...

Or to something much more recent?

Trooper York said...

No it refers to his habit of photographing his nut sack to send via text to various sideline reporters.

Original Mike said...

'Cause you know, the only way the Giants can get ahead is through affirmative action.

Lem said...

Have I told you lately that the GREEN BAY PACKERS are the NFL Champions?

Where is Trooper?

Trooper York said...

And don't tell me he only did that with the Jets. He had to be doing it for a long time before that since it came so easy to him. It's just that I don't think they have cellphones in Wisconsin so he was using Poloroids or cave paintings or something. Just sayn'

Lem said...

oh there he is.

garaji mahal said...

Does that refer to the Strahan sack, Trooper?

No quotes around "sack"?

Original Mike said...

Going to the Lambeau Field shindig, Trooper?

Original Mike said...

"No quotes around "sack"?"

Don't want to hurt Trooper's feelings.

Triangle Man said...

Lem, did you mention that the Green Bay Packers are the Super Bowl champions?


Oh, I see you did.

Trooper York said...

Now, now Original Mike don't be a sore winner. You guys won. You should just laugh it all off and revel in your ownership of the Vince Lombardi Reststop Championship Trophy. You earned it.

I am confident that the Giants will be back in the hunt next year along with your Packers, Beth's Saints, AJ's Eagles and whoever roots for those loser teams in the West.

garaji mahal said...

I'd like to thank the Giants for coming to Lambeau for that scrimmage in week 15. Not quite a real game simulation, but our 2nd and 3rd stringers got some quality work in that day against the Giant starters ;-)

Lem said...

Well, I haven't said it in a while..

The Green Bay Packers are the World Champions.

Meade said...

Just now getting back to this so maybe it was already commented on up thread... still, I think it might bear repeating:

The Green Bay Packers are The Super Bowl Champions.

Original Mike said...

Now, now, Meade. Don't be a sore winner.

BOO-rahh!!!

MadisonMan said...

Well, if there is a season.

The Packers are the World Champions, baby!

Meade said...

Oh, I see now, reading through some of the comments above, that I'm not the only Althouse reader who has become aware, within, oh say, the last 24 hours, that the Green Bay Packers, quite recently, became
The Super Bowl XLV Champions.

Trooper York said...

Well you guys won that game fair and square. And you are the World Champions. So you should be proud of your team. And your fans!

Did I tell you lately that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl Champions?

Which means they have now won four Super Bowls while the New York Giants have won three.

Original Mike said...

"Well, if there is a season."

Could be the Packers will be World Champions for the rest of all time.

Trooper York said...

But who's counting?

Meade said...

Lem said...
Well, I haven't said it in a while..

The Green Bay Packers are the World Champions.


I totally agree.

Original Mike said...

Who could argue?

Meade said...

Trooper York said...

Very well put!

garaji mahal said...

But who's counting?

If we are counting, and I admit that could be viewed as tacky, this makes 13 world championships. By far the most of any team.

Trooper York said...

That's ok Garage. Who would call Packer fan's tacky?

1jpb said...

and there are no government controlled egalitarian outcomes

No, the NFL itself enforces it's redistribution. They, literally, spread the wealth. WWJtPD?

Bill Maher was sorta funny as he did what he does--i.e. make fun w/o rigorous accuracy.

Original Mike said...

You should carry those, Trooper.

Original Mike said...

"No, the NFL itself enforces it's redistribution. They, literally, spread the wealth. WWJtPD?"

Private companies are free to do what they want. The operative word being, free.

1jpb said...

BTW, I found that site via the google. I dunno who/what they are.

Trooper York said...

I do carry bras in that size which looks like a 44H but not in the Green and Gold. Sorry.

1jpb said...

"Private companies are free to do what they want. The operative word being, free."

Presumably our anti-turst laws would say otherwise.

Original Mike said...

Well, now that the Green Bay Packers are World Champions, women will be clamering for them.

Trooper York said...

Hey no doubt. Just tell them to wear the potato in the front.

Original Mike said...

We're going to get to do this until next Fall. What fun! Eh, Troop?

Trooper York said...

Nah Original Mike. We will have better things to talk about.

ricpic said...

It seemed like the fix might be in...

Speaking of the fix being in I thought those Green Bay ends dropping what? 3 passes thrown right at them might have been an attempt at a fix. We'll never know.

Meade said...

Uh... aren't those Yankee baseball guys missing something, you know - potato-y - there, in front?
Just sayin'

ricpic said...

Interesting statistic: there were more people in the stadium last night (about 103,000) than there are Green Bayers (about 101,000).

Trooper York said...

They are holding it in their hands dude. They are detachable.

Trooper York said...

I can't wait till we get to spank the Phillies in the Series again!

This doctor gave a patient a prescription for Cialis, but the pharmacist made a mistake and told the patient to take 20 pills a day instead of two.

A few months go by and the doctor realizes that the patient hasn't shown up for any follow-up appointments. As he happens to be driving near the patient's house, he decides to stop in and see if everything was okay.

The patient's teenage son answers the door, and in response to the doctor's inquiry says "Mom is in the hospital with a ruptured vagina, my younger sister is pregnant, my rectum hurts, and Dad's out in the back yard saying 'Here kitty kitty'."

The important question is 'was the daughter's situation "forcible"? If she was ok w/ it, well that's different, according to the House GOP.

Just cant help it can you? I'm sure this relates in some way to the topic?

Even so, could you be remotely honest when you thread jack? No?

One morning a couple were going at it hammer and thongs and the wife says: "Honey, this Viagra is so wonderful, let me fix us a nice full breakfast... eggs, bacon, toast..."
The husband says: "No, I'm not hungry, the viagra takes away my appetite."

Later in the day, the wife says: "Lover, I want to do something for you, let me fix you a nice wholesome lunch, fresh salad with your favorite stuff, steamed veggies, and some grilled fish fillets..."

The husband again refuses, "I'm just not hungry after using that viagra."

Right about dinner time, the wife tries again, "Are you hungry yet?, I'll fix a steak and potatoes dinner with hot rolls."

The husband still refuses, "No, that Viagra just kills my appetite."

The wife goes "well I don't give a shit, I'm getting something to eat, so get THE FUCK OFF OF ME!"

"A few months go by and the doctor realizes that the patient hasn't shown up for any follow-up appointments. As he happens to be driving near the patient's house, he decides to stop in and see if everything was okay."

Was the tv on? Were they watching the Super Bowl? Super Bowl XLV? Do you know who won?

Trooper York said...

Of course if the husband was the Steelers quarterback then this would be a rape joke and politically incorrect. Just sayn'

Correspondence said...

Just gotta say it: GO PACK GO!!! WHAT A YEAR!!!

Roger J. said...

what ricpic said--I mean Rogers kept hitting the receivers in bad spots--their hands, their chests--I think had more to do with point spread than outcome (I kid)
