"Livin' in the home of the brave...."

Alicia Keyes festoons the National Anthem with an additional line... and now we are livin' in the Super Bowl comments thread here at Althouse.

ADDED: Beyonce. She lip-synched at the Inauguration, and now she drew so much power to boost that performance that she wrecked the whole second half. At least she didn't wreck the whole second Obama term. I hope!

I thought it was excellent.

And actually performed live, imagine that.

Probably will be better than anything at halftime.

Prediction: Baltimore 30, San Franciso 24.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

That pregame show sometimes looked like a replay of the DNC. What the hell does Obama's attempt to justify the ACA have to do with football? Not to mention the emotionally pandering anti-gun crusade CBS appears to be on.

kentuckyliz said...

And she played the piano at the same time. Take that, Beyoncé.

Thanks for this thread. I felt bad being off topic elsewhere.

Let's shoot for 1,000 comments, yes?

Touchdown Baltimore!

I don't really care for either team, so I don't care. Lots of Randy Moss fans around here.

kentuckyliz said...

I want to try a Black Crown. Cuz I want to be a part of that hip crowd.

kentuckyliz said...

Audi black eye commercial. Cute. Would be better if the chick left with him.

After our Plan B conversation, I assumed dad tossed his son a pack of condoms.

kentuckyliz said...

Lucky Walter.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

It's not fair to put Danica Patrick next to an actually attractive woman.

She's a Nascar 10. Which is like a law school 8.5. Which is like a 7.

campy said...

Audi black eye commercial. Cute. Would be better if the chick left with him.

They filmed a version with that ending too.

kentuckyliz said...

Library fight...cute

President-Mom-Jeans said...

I don't drink soda, but even if I did, I think that creepy big brother surveillance state commercial wouldn't make me want to purchase Coca Cola.

kentuckyliz said...

game snack 1--british hot tea with milk, and digestive biscuits. (wheatmeal cookies)

MadisonMan said...

Not watching. I have classes to prep for tomorrow.

Drew W said...

Too bad they used a Las Vegas arrangement for "America the Beautiful" (with the Sandy Hook kids sadly, but predictably exploited), and it's likewise too bad that Alicia Keys turned the national anthem into a cocktail lounge torch song. Still, there was a lot less overwrought howling than I expected. I thought the first Hyundai ad (fun family day) tried too hard, although I think it was amusing to see the Flaming Lips get so much screentime. The second Hyundai ad (beating the bullies) was much better, I thought. The Audi ad with the prom stag kid was gross -- he forces himself on the girl and she loves it! Not great. The M&M commercial was silly but entertaining. Whoops. Gotta go -- the Puppy Bowl just started.

I missed the big brother one...indisposed. I think I would have liked to see it, being a samizdata blog fan.

kentuckyliz said...

infinite witches

Drew W said...

Oh, and that Bar-Rafaeli-kisses-the-nerd ad was gross. This is GoDaddy.com for heaven's sake. Shouldn't Bar Rafaeli be kissing Danica Patrick?

kentuckyliz said...

nice calvin klein gay porn

edutcher said...

Ms Liz, I'm glad you're back with us and so ebullient - literarily, as well as medically.

Since I'm not watching what is often the worst game of the year, I'll leave it at that.

Ann Althouse said...

The ads are showing quite a bit of transgressive violence, especially sexual.

And I was surprised to see Coke promoting graffiti.

Chip Ahoy said...

MAN she's got pipes.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

"And I was surprised to see Coke promoting graffiti."

The Occupy types are too stupid and lazy to buy Soda-Streams no doubt.

HT said...

Not getting a good feeling for SF.

Kelly said...

I liked the anthem sung like that. Nothing wrong with mixing it up. Excited to see the Star Trek trailer.

David said...

Just saw the racist VW ad.

Oh the horror.

Bob_R said...

Maybe as the NFL tries to eliminate transgressive violence, commercials will increase the supply. A commercial with Chuck Bednarik celebrating over Frank Gifford's broken body would be interesting.

tim said...

I don't watch tv any longer but I do have to say that cbs has some very hot lefty girls. Bet the shows are terrible though. Maybe just watch the shows with no sound.

Lucy Liu, Kat Dennings, Polly Peret (sp), the blonds on big bang, Tom Brady ex. Several more.

tim said...

Did I miss the racists mayors for civilian disarmament commercial?

HT said...

Tom Brady IS hot. In fact, he's luscious and he should be in the superdome now.

Titus said...

Every time I see Dan Marino I think of his love child.

What a whore.

tits.

Titus said...

There is lots of black long and low hanging hog on that field.

I like that.

tits.

Drew W said...

I don't think that Jamaican patois VW ad was racist, but somehow I doubt another silly our-product-makes-you-happy ad actually sells automobiles. Maybe research contradicts me, I don't know.

The Hyundai avoiding-obstacles-on-the-road ad was nice.

And I think the pit bulls are too easily dominating the smaller breeds at the Puppy Bowl, just so you know.

Chef Mojo said...

Hated the Alicia Keys National Anthem. Awful. Why can't we just have a straight take on it for now. The Star Spangled Banner is not a torch song. Just real bad. Just get up there and sing the song with respect.

ALH said...

Beyonce is an inspiration to young girls everywhere.

HT said...

I don't think I've ever heard her sing, and I've got the tv on now.

tim said...

ha, I meant Tom B's ex, on a cop show. But yes I can see that ladies and men of a certain persuasion could think that Tom B is "luscious."

but no he shouldn't be there tonight. Ravens def earned this.

bagoh20 said...

You hardly ever see this done without a stripper pole.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Truly awful.

AprilApple said...

If you like it then you should put a gun on it. oh oh oh oh... oh o h oh.
After waiting for the background check to complete, as of today, I am the proud new owner of a hand gun. (btw - what gun show loop hole? I had to wait almost 2 weeks)

I'm going to turn off the TV at half-time and ogle my new gun. There's even a web video to help me learn how to use it. Thank you, democrats. You inspired me.
I know you want to turn me into a criminal. But for now, you can kiss my butt.

Titus said...

What year did the Super Bowl become so gay?

Last year Madonna, this year Beyonce.

Next year who? Boy George or Rufus?

Michael said...

Beyonce greatly overrated.

David said...

Beyonce is solving the lip sync issue by barely singing at all.

Gaaaaah!

ALH said...

I mean of all the aging scantily clad singers who make a living by gyrating around stage while strobe lights and techno music distracts from their below average vocal abilities....Beyonce is defnitely in the top 10.

Michael said...

Our culture.

Drew W said...

I don't know much about Beyonce's musical oeuvre, so I'd be loath to comment, but seeing her in that black lace outfit just reminds me of Apollonia, Vanity 6, or some other soft-core Prince-manufactured girl group. Makes me miss Prince's halftime show.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Bad, just really really bad.

Should have brought back Up with People.

john said...

There seems to be no time left for the marching bands.

Bob_R said...

Why can't her record company find Beyonce a good pop song? A hook, a hook, my kingdoom for a hook.

bagoh20 said...

Now if we could get Dylan dressed like that, we would have something.

I wonder if my boredom with that highly produced stuff is just a function of being an old fart. Do young people still find that compelling stuff? It seems to be 24/7 in entertainment today.

Why they hell am I asking you people?

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Or just have an extended 15 minute version of the two broke girl promo.

Eric Jablow said...

Well, the best National Anthem at a sports event was the one Marvin Gaye Jr sang at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game. Of course, he was a better singer than Ms. Keys.

Lem said...

Alicia Keys was very good.

Lem said...

Kick off return td.

Bob said...

NFL is 0-2 for entertainment tonight. Thank god game is good

rhhardin said...

Imus's Rob Bartlett predicted a final score of 11-4

Lem said...

109 yard return.

Nasty.

Chip Ahoy said...

This is the game that proves one league is just flat better than the other league innit.

See? The red guys just now kicked it to the blue guys and a blue guy ran the field and got a touchdown. Ha! Shouldn'a kicked it so perfectly.

I think I saw that before once.

Ann Althouse said...

Jacoby jones, much more entertaining physical spectacle than Beyonce.

Ambrose said...

How do they know it was 109 yards and not 108 or 108.5? The lines are not marked in the end zone.

Lem said...

Did the lights just go out?

Lem said...

Cant blame Bush this time.

Ann Althouse said...

Terrible halftime show. Mushy sound. Spectacle was just a statement that Beyonce has sex appeal. Nothing for those of us not attracted to women. Madonna would have male dancers.

Ann Althouse said...

Power outage?!

The only hope for the Niners.

Titus said...

I agree Bago, the entire techno dance shit with little singing is really fucking tired.

Can the music world find a new venture?

I used to dance to that shit nightly but now it gets on my last gay nerve.

Ann Althouse said...

The dome had a lobotomy.

Titus said...

Beyonce sucks.

Girl get a new show.

Chip Ahoy said...

Die'n in the home of brave.

Ann Althouse said...

Now all these expensive commercials are running to fill a technical gap??!

David said...

Nighty-night. Lights are out in the Superdome.

Soon the reports of cannibalism will begin.

It's Bush's fault.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Somehow this is Bush's fault.

Michael said...

Now George Bush has fucked up the lighting in New Orleans.

Chip Ahoy said...

See? right when I tune in for once and it goes half dark. It's like God is telling me not to watch and who can argue with that?,nobody, so goodbye.

Ann Althouse said...

Beyonce should come back out and do something completely spontaneous. Help the guys with their stretching.

john said...

Now CBS is really wishing they had some marching bands.

Ambrose said...

Lights out Heckuva job Brownie.

AprilApple said...

Did the Occupy! movement! show up and pull the plug?

Drew W said...

Those Century 21 ads have been kind of unassuming but very cute. And maybe even effective.

And early news reports say that in the darkened half of the blacked-out Superdome, some attendees have resorted to cannibalism.

Titus said...

I would do the Black/Creolish ref.

And you know Sterling Sharpe has a huge black hog.

tits.

Drew W said...

Crap! David beat me to the cannibalism punch.

Titus said...

The 49er QB is so fucking hot.

I would totally lick all his tats.

Titus said...

Cannibalism is one thing, however, I don't care to watch people shitting in the upper decks.

Ann Althouse said...

Just play in the light that you have.

It's the equivalent of rain or icy cold. Just play American pussies!

Lem said...

Power surge...

I'm going to say what you all thinking...

Beyonce is 0 for 2.

Do not have that woman perform live any time soon.

Ann Althouse said...

Beyonce overloaded the circuits.

Chef Mojo said...

Jeebus. There's plenty of light down there. Just resume play.

Lem said...

The halftime show sucked the power out of the dome.

Lem said...

If you are Beyonce disappear for awhile... and then show up at Oprah's couch.

Lem said...

Do the advertisers get a discount?

Tyrone Slothrop said...

I'm feeling sorry for the building engineers. Probably a smoked transformer. Very difficult to recover from that.

Chef Mojo said...

Heckuva job, Brownie...

Quayle said...

Blatant holding on that kick-off return, right near the hole the runner took.

Anyone else see that?

Craig said...

Put some well-being in their Gatorade so they can incandesce.

Lem said...

A conspiracy paradise.

The 49rs were favorites... should they come back "the house" wins?

Astro said...

This is why football should be played outdoors , in the daytime.

Announcer James Brown has the worst dyed hair ever. What did he use, a can of black rustoleum and a bowl?

Lem said...

This facility doesn't have a backup in case of a surge?

I dont know much about electricity... but I know critical facilities like hospitals have them.

bagoh20 said...

Beyonce is fine at what she does, it's just that it's worn out as a genre. It's been done a thousand times. I don't see much difference between the 20 acts that are her competition.

Even the marching bands are less predictable. They should show Three Stooges clips. You never know what those guys will do.

Kevin Walsh said...

Looks like it really IS over when the phat lady sings.

john said...

Here is your marching band, folks.

I just hope they yield when the lights come back on.

Birches said...

Somehow I don't think this would happen in Texas Stadium . . .

Lem said...

The official marked the resume of play by saying "lets go" with a smile.

I liked that.

Lem said...

Pretty gutsy statement by Althouse.

Beyonce. She lip-synched at the Inauguration, and now she drew so much power to boost that performance that she wrecked the whole second half. At least she didn't wreck the whole second Obama term. I hope!

Expect some push back.

Maguro said...

A conspiracy paradise.

The 49rs were favorites... should they come back "the house" wins?


Normally, the house wins regardless of the game's outcome. The reason they have a point spread is to even out the action on both teams, so that the house gets its 10% cut regardless of who wins the game.

The only time they lose is if they screw up the spread initially and a huge amount of money comes in on one team that can't be evened out by moving the spread. I don't think that happened here, the spread didn't move a whole lot in the 2 week runup to the game.

Lem said...

Thanks Maguro.

Kirk Parker said...

April,

Wadja get? And did you have to wait for some waiting period, or because the retailer was out of stock?

Maguro said...

Mio Fit looks absolutely disgusting.

Michael Haz said...

Dick Morris has the 49ers ahead by 7 points.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Wow, Letterman is old.

And also apparently liked to fuck his staff.

Only as old as you feel I guess.

Lem said...

oh oh..

here come the niners.

mccullough said...

Hopefully the 49ers can now make it a game

President-Mom-Jeans said...

I am officially never eating Pistachio's, at least the brand the uses that anti-American little piece of trash Psy in their commercials.

Fuck him.

bagoh20 said...

I'm making chicken soup in a crock pot, and I need more stuff in there. I got chicken, lots of spices, corn and Garbanzo beans.

Does anyone know if I'll regret putting diced Jicama in there? That's all I have left.

I have avocados for when I serve it, but I need more stuff in that pot.

Lem said...

Flaco sacked.

Ann Althouse said...

Gangnam style has reached the end of its fame trajectory.

Lem said...

bad punt... and a big return.

john said...

Use tofu before jicama.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Instapundit:

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY: Super Bowl City Leads on Energy Efficient Forefront. “To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues.” Everything went according to plan!

Two tds withing 5 minutes?

Lem said...

lol.. @isnsta

Lem said...

2 tds in 2 minutes and 21 seconds.

Titus said...

Now we got a game here!

Very exciting.

Astro said...

Orzo pasta or rice.
Celery.

bagoh20 said...

Tofu is more un-American than Psy. To use that would be to welcome the decline. Besides who has tofu around on Superbowl Sunday. That's the kind of thing that leads to spousal abuse.

Ann Althouse said...

Big time Budweiser bestiality.

Titus said...

Phlacid QB has nice eyes.

Lem said...

Everything is coming loose for the Ravens.

bagoh20 said...

I don't have any of that stuff. I got jicamas, a mango, and milk bones. I'm going with the jicama. I'm fearless.

Lem said...

And the breaks go the niners way.

mccullough said...

Ravens making some mistakes

Titus said...

I would prefer the players have whit pants in order to see their jocks and black asses.

bpm4532 said...

I don't watch Superbowl halftime shows. They never show halftime shows during the regular season or playoffs and I don't miss them. Give me a good marching band at a high school or college game, though, and I'll pay attention.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

The Leon Sandcastle thing was pretty funny.

Lem said...

My favorite so far is the Oreos commercial... followed by the power outage.

Chip Ahoy said...

bagoh20 did you put a bay leaf in there?

tim said...

I hate the frufru Italian car company trying to be all American.

bagoh20 said...

Chip, I ain't got no bay leaf money.

I put in pureed jalapenos, salt, black pepper, garlic, thyme, rosemary, sage, marjoram, hot sauce, beans, corn and lastly the jicama cut into thick julienne. Pretty much everything I have in the house. It's sure smells good.

Lem said...

SF is going to have to score a td to win.

Drew W said...

That Tide Joe Montana ketchup stain commercial was a very deft spoof of all those ridiculous sightings of the image of the Virgin Mary in tree bark or a grease stain or whatever. One of the best ads tonight I think -- I wonder if anyone will denounce it as biased.

And the Willem Defoe as the Devil (and Kate Upton as the demoted bimbo) Mercedes ad just aired. If it weren't for Dafoe, it would be too obvious a ripoff of last year's "Mr. Sandman" testosterone-overload car-fantasy ad. Cleverness aside, it's still largely a ripoff of "Mr. Sandman."

Lem said...

4th and goal have to go for it.

bagoh20 said...

I'm struggling to pull together a hobo stew for myself, but the dogs are having whole chicken breast, beef ribs and ham hocks - all raw, so that's easy. It's a dog's life. Superbowl Sunday is a pretty good day for dogs generally. Mine didn't like Beyonce.

Lem said...

game over?

bagoh20 said...

Awesome 4th qtr!

LilyBart said...

Beyonce is an inspiration to young girls everywhere.

Right.

My 15 year old daughter, who watched the show (I did not), summed her performance up like this, "she pointed to her vagina a lot"

President-Mom-Jeans said...

LilyBart said...

In the progressive/Obama version of reality, this is all that woman are. They are the sum of what is between their legs. Beyonce is inspires them to be good little Julia's.

bagoh20 said...

I got no horse in this, but holding is holding. You don't call it depending on how important the timing is. "It's a bad time to call it"? No, it's a bad time to commit it.

Palladian said...

bago, I would have left out the rosemary. Too strong and characteristic for a chicken stew. Also, it's better to add black pepper at the end, because sometimes it can get bitter.

Alex said...

Bottom line - the NFL didn't want SF to win.

Lem said...

I just heard the f bomb by Flaco.

tim said...

Joe Flacco says "it's fucking awesome."

Ann Althouse said...

Yeah, I heard that. Don't get the microphone in there if you don't want to hear it.

bagoh20 said...

Thanks, Palladian. I did use very little rosemary, and most of the pepper was at serving. I'm eating it now and it's probably the best thing I ever made. The Jicama works great. Like firm potatoes. Score!

tim said...

add to my hot cbs ladies the onefrom Hawaii50, though don't know if she lefty or not.

Michael Haz said...

Time to turn on the riot cam in Baltimore.

Cutest postgame image: the Ravens player making a snow angel in the confetti that had blanketed the field.

I've often thought that the feeling you would have in the shower after winning the Superbowl would just be the best. Total feeling of success and accomplishment, no work tomorrow, long vacation ahead, big paycheck - perfect. Where's the women?

God loves Ray Lewis more than the 49ers. Facebook confirmed.

The Ravens are going to the Superbowl! Woo hoo!

HT said...

The 14 year old I was watching with kept saying (in conversation on his iPhone of course, but also half to us), "it's the illuminati." That is so 2001. Is this the same Illuminati with the reptilian leaders who are supposedly responsible for 911? I think it is. He would not let it go.

Where's your country of the day post? Today should be Cape Verde, about which I have quite a bit to say.

If you read the old testament it seems that God did love him some killin, no wonder Ray is his favorite.

Plus God did say something like go forth be fruitful and multiply with different baby momma. Ray heard that part of the sermon.

HT said...

Every time I see Ray Lewis, I shut my eyes or turn the channel. Joe Flacco has great eyelashes and nice eyes. He's cute.

"I've often thought that the feeling you would have in the shower after winning the Superbowl would just be the best. Total feeling of success and accomplishment, no work tomorrow, long vacation ahead, big paycheck - perfect. Where's the women?"


Not in the locker room with you. You're showering with 30 other men and having the best feeling. ;)

Shouting Thomas said...

I saw the half time show in a restaurant, so I couldn't hear the sound. I've got the feeling I didn't miss anything.

Did I?

Two things seems to be happening visually. The girls posed as a group and showed their butts quite a bit. Beyonce fell to the floor a lot and seemed on the verge of flashing a full spread beaver, but demurred at the last second.

The influence of porn was pretty obvious. What's this act all about?

Lem said...

The winning coach is on ESPN

furious_a said...

I don't see how Beyonce's slithering on the stage at Halftime was any worse than Michelle Pfeiffer slithering on the piano in The Fabulous Baker Boys.

Tim said...

Shit.

Palladian said...

I think you pretty much answered your own question.

chickelit said...

I was up visiting inlaws in the Hollywood Hills for the game. I bellowed support for the Ravens like an outlaw, and was heard in the canyons.

I took the dog for a walk during Beyance.

chickelit said...

All ages (13-52) in our viewing group concurred that the commercials sucked compared to previous years.

What's up with that?

Consumer confidence?

Spent creativity?

Something faltering?

Coincidence?

Petunia said...

There are some pretty bitter comments on the Plain Dealer website. Guess they still haven't gotten over Modell's taking their team away all those years ago.

After the game: JIM Harbaugh at the podium bitching about the non-call. JOHN Harbaugh on the NFL Network and the first thing he says is he knew the Niners would make a comeback and his brother is the best coach in the NFL.

Interesting how one brother can have so little class and the other brother so much.

Steve Koch said...

Great game, they both played great but somebody had to lose. It looked like the niners were going to pull it out at the end but they couldn't quite get it done. When the Ravens' back was against the wall, they sent an all out blitz a couple of time to force Kaepernick to get rid of the ball immediately. Thought the niners would have been well advised to line Kaepernick quite a bit deeper on those all out blitzes so it would take the Ravens longer to get to Kaepernick, thus giving him more room to room to throw a pass and give him better angles to run.

I was for the niners (and definitely not a fan of Ray Lewis) but I wasn't surprised the refs did not call holding on the niners' final pass because, in both the nba and the nfl, refs tend to not want to decide the game on a penalty call. IIRC, the great Ed Reed was doing the holding so he was going to get the benefit of the star call, not Crabtree.

In a close game the niners could not afford to lose the turnover battle and to give up a kickoff return for a TD.

wholelottasplainin' said...

How 'bout them Red Sox???

Emil Blatz said...

My favorite moment was the Raven's punter side stepping his way as slowly as possible out of the end zone, stage right. That was a very smart call and left the Niners in a box. Just enough time to pull off the incredibly unlikely run-back for a TD. Which was not close to happening.

I am very torn on this. I think the Niners were a better team, but the Ravens played up, and I respect that. It's just that I hate Ray Lewis, and don't want to be hearing nine yards about his greatness on the field.

What he did off the field, in Atlanta in January 2000, left two absolute nobody's bleeding to death in the street. I attended about a third of his trial, primarily to watch his defense counsel - Eddie Garland - make the DA (Paul Howard) look very, very bad. It was like going to witness impeachment school as Garland destroyed all the the prosecution witnesses. The critical witness, who could have changed the result was the limo driver Lewis hired to drive his posse down from B'more for the game. He was there when the stabbings took place.

The limo driver gave some initial testimony early in the trial, which was not strong testimony. Not Kato Kaelin quality, but weak. At the end of his testimony, the prosecution let him go, and he returned to Baltimore. During the rest of the trial things went badly for the prosecution and the only thing that would rescue them was for some rebuttal testimony from the limo driver, if he could be encouraged to return from Baltimore. He claimed medical condition and stated he was unavailable. He was outside the jurisdiction of the court,and could not be compelled to return. And that was that.

But he's a murdering thug in my book, and although he has had a great career, I'm willing to put down large $ that in the next decade he will be in the criminal justice system once again.

Why do all American singers have to put "their" stamp on our national songs? Just sing it as written. Watch hockey in Canada and they just sing the song, with emotion.

And exactly who was singing when Beyonce and all 50 of her dancers were dancing around and none of them had mics to their mouths? When hey showed shots of the band, they didn't have mics either....
