Ann Stewart: The New England Patriots win Super Bowl XXXVIII with a 32-29 win over the Carolina Panthers in Houston, Texas. Tom Brady wins the Most Valuable Player again.
Scarlet Termite: Wow! What a game! Panthers didn't win but they sure played a great game! I am so impressed by Jake Delomme! What an arm! I haven't seen anyone fire it in like that since John Elway played. And the Panther offense was giving him all kinds of time to do it, too. He could've eaten his lunch back there. I know that they are all sad that they didn't win but they should be proud of themselves for the effort they put out. That was the best Super Bowl I have seen in years!
Backwards: The Panthers haven't ever won a Super Bowl.
Ann Stewart: Backwards I didn't know that...Thanks for filling me in...I am not much of an expert on football...I was for the Pats...but I would have been happy either way...I did get some nice pixs of Tom Brady after the game...The Pats only won by 3 points...Gee I hope that Panthers get their shot at it again...My favorite team is the Titans...but my second favorite is the Patriots...So I guess you saw Brady make most VIP player again hun?
Sindhu Kumar: It was oh so close!. This game will added to the list of all time classics of the Super bowl.
Michael Bohannon: Well, that was a great Superbowl! I thought either team was deserving of the win, but I was really hoping for our first Superbowl overtime. I didn't realize that kicking the ball out of bounds resulted in the ball being placed on the 40; I thought that it always came out on the 30. Maybe that's where the ball actually went out of bounds, but if not, I think automatically starting from the 40 is a little extreme. I understand the rule is there to deter the kicker from avoiding dangerous returns by simply booting the ball out of bounds, but the 40 yard line- that's just ridiculous. But like I said, I don't know where the ball actually went out of bounds.
I thought Brady was good, but I actually thought the MVP should have went to Vrabel. I know that sounds weird, but hey the guy made big plays on both sides of the field. He was everywhere!
OK.. prediction time: Titans 2005 Superbowl Champions and then Steve McNair retires and rides off into the sunset. So Patriot fans enjoy this one, because it's your last.
Sindhu Kumar: I echo your sentiments, Michael. Would have loved to have seen this game gone to overtime.
Ann Stewart: Why is President Bush kissing up to Tom Brady. Mr. President wants Tom's endorsement. Do endorsements really mean that much? Read this DRUDGE REPORT and this article by DAVID WHITLEY...That will tell you why President Bush wants Brady to be his Political Puppy Dog.
Sindhu Kumar: Got to see super bowl bound new England quarter back Tom Brady seated a row behind First Lady Laura Bush at yesterday's state of the union address.
Ann Stewart: Yep Sindhu...Presidnet Bush is kiss'in ass for his endorsement...Kinda like last time he kissed up to Ricky Martin for his endorsement so he could get more Hispanic votes. It was kinda cute though to see President GW Bush Shake'in his Bon Bon to Ricky Martin's music.
NEW ENGLAND PATROITS VS CAROLINA PANTHERS FOR THE SUPER BOWL
Georgia Peaches: YAY the Patriots are going to the Super Bowl!!! Hey y'all, I have two new hotties for ya to scope out:: Patriots QB Tom Brady, and actor Matthew Goode, who is in Mandy Moore's new movie "Chasing Liberty." I know we all appreciate the beauty of a hunky man.
Ann Stewart: Georgia Peaches you know I'm going to use that on the sports talk site...and I just got done watching Tom Bradly at the end of that game...The Patriots may win the Super bowl again...Who Knows...I posting your words.
Georgia Peaches: Attention all Patriots/Tom Brady fans, I found the most awesome website EVER: www.absolutebrady.com What I wouldn't give to have a front row seat watching him run around in those tight little football pants...
Michael Bohannon: I can't believe how bad Philadelphia plays in the big games! I hate that they lost, but clearly Carolina was the better team. This was the Eagles last chance I think. Deuce will be gone next year and maybe a few others. That's typical of the Eagles though. I'm rooting for Carolina in the Super Bowl, but I think New England is a far better team than any of the teams that Carolina has faced. I'm an old Philly fan, but I honestly don't believe they were that strong of a team. They got to the NFC Championship on luck and effort, both of which seemed to be lacking tonight. New England is a well disciplined team and don't make many mistakes. Yet I think it will be a good game.
Sindhu Kumar: Michael: this Super Bowl is well represented by the state of Louisiana. Jake Delhomme, quarterback of the Panthers, is from Lafayette, LA. and on the New England side you have Jarvis Green and Rohan Davey who are from here and went to LSU.
Ann Stewart: I’m rooting for the Patriots again…they are like my second favorite team…Tom Brady did a great job today…I won’t be unhappy if Carolina wins though cause they are long over due.
Scarlet Termite: Ok since this is the sports forum, what do you guys think? Should Pete Rose be reinstated in baseball so he can be inducted into the Hall of Fame or should he continue to be banned? He did admit (finally) that he bet on baseball and on the Cincinnati Reds. The thing that makes me so angry about it is the fact that he damaged the game and the team that gave him so much and is still unrepentant about it. I haven't followed it closely enough to know if the timing of his admission has to do with cutting a deal with the MLB. I wouldn't be surprised, frankly. It's just rotten. What he did was illegal and rotten and I think that he doesn't deserve to be reinstated to baseball or inducted into the Hall of Fame. There are far better candidates, I am sure.
Erin: Totally agree Scarlet. Pete Rose is a huge disgrace.
Steven Bohannon: I agree with you, Scarlet. We'll always appreciate what Pete Rose did as a manager and a player, but his cheating (betting on baseball) was just exacerbated by all these years of constant denials. If the baseball commissioner and any of the other powers in baseball have any conscience (now that's a perplexing thought), they should not reinstate Pete Rose. I know known of us are old enough to remember that scandal with the White Sox when they threw that World Series in the early 1900s, but those guys and that franchise were tainted for a long time by the scandal, and are still referred to as the "Black Soxs". Pete Rose deserves the same comeuppance. Anyway, I agree, don't allow him in the Hall of Fame. Put people in there who better represent the ideals of sportsmanship...even though there are likely some already in the Hall of Fame that did worse things than Pete Rose. Thanks for the vine. :)
Ann Stewart: My opinion is very much the same as your folks, but I would induct him to the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Shame at the same time. Than he could be a great example of both.
Scarlet Termite: Is that pretty much the whole thing? I can post that, no problem. I will caution Mr Hemmer that I disagree with him. Banned from baseball is banned from baseball and no matter how good an athlete Rose was he still embarrassed and disgraced the game.
Backwards: That was pretty much it, but before billyboy went on his rant, Jack called Pete Rose, "Charlie Dirtbag". To which billyboy corrected him by saying "Charlie Hustle. Peter Edward Rose to you from (don't know the name of the town b/c it was garbled), OH". Jack went into his litany and ended it with "Bill still thinks he's a great guy." And that's when billyboy said what he said.
Wai lin: I think that if Pete rose is inducted to the hall of fame there should be some sort of note or disclaimer that about the scandal and him being banned from baseball. Can you tell I watch too much PTI?
Sissy: OMG, how sexy does Jeff Fisher look with that gray in his beard?
Ann Stewart: Hey Sissy he's sexy and Titans won today, beating Baltimore by 3 points.
Jennifer (Bush Supporter): Jeff Fisher is the hottest looking man and a great coach. GO TITANS. Jeff is doing a great job. Titans we're 12/4 until this game and we just won another one. harrah harree and yep yeppy!!!
Sissy: I watched the game today. That means I'll get to see that sex pot again next week. I can't wait!
Backwards: Yeah, but Dallas lost. WOOHOO! Now about Jeff Fisher...I'm not a facial hair kind of girl but, Sexy Indeed!
Michael Bohannon: The irony of the Titans' win is that Eddie George was the pivotal element. He ran the ball like he did when he first came in the league and helped the offense retain possession on several crucial occasions. Titans, after gaining the lead, went into their classic conservative play-on-your-heels mode and it almost lost them the game. The defense wasn't exactly in prevent defense, but the DBs were playing incredibly far off the line and there was no pressure put on Wright. He was able to drive down the field and even the score. Yet, the Titans pulled it off and hopefully Eddie exorcised the Ray Lewis demon. Coincidentally, I thought George leveled Lewis a good one during the game and yet there was no mention of it. When Eddie and Ray were jawing each other near the sidelines it was because Eddie was gloating about how he had ran Lewis over. It may seem trivial to the rest of the country, but here in Tennessee we knew what that hit meant for Eddie. Maybe now he's got his confidence back and he can stop tip-toeing through the defense and start punishing the opponent.
DC: Annie, it was great to see your Titans win! Won a hundred on them!
Ann Stewart: Yeah everybody is celebrating in Tennessee. I would have got drunk if I drank. I'm a happy duck anyway.
Sindhu Kumar: Now, let's pray that the titans make it the Superbowl for the sakes of their former home, Houston, who did not build them a stadium and their new home, Nashville, who welcomed them with open arms.
Ann Stewart: Yeah Sindhu--I live right by that wonderful Titans stadium too. It made my property value go up, so I love that stadium.
Jennifer (Bush Supporter): I saw George Bush on the television talking about how Mad Cow won't affect us and that he is eating beef today. I just thought that was a interesting thing to say by the President. Now if there is a major Mad Cow brake out the Dem's can say it's his fault, like they always do. It's like point the finger at the man you choose. When the blackouts happened they blamed him for that too, the dem's will probably blame him for this too.
DC: My son is blaming GWB for the University of Michigan losing to USC in yesterday's Rose Bowl.......Go figure! (just kidding)
Ann Stewart: Good morning DC....Your up bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning. Well I'm guessing that you are, with a cute statement like that.
DC: Getting ready to go play golf! In Chicago, that is a rare treat this time of year! I blame(credit) BUSH!! Thanks GWB!
Wayne in Missouri: DC,--I do blame Bush for the Texas Rangers consistently finishing last in their division though :-). As GM of the Rangers he traded Sammy Sosa to the Cubs among his list of many bad decisions. Just goes to show that people should be hired based on their ability to do the job and not on their family connections. Since we're talking sports I figured I'd sneak that one in there ;-). Happy New Year to all!
DC: Wayne........GWB did NOT trade Sammy to the Cubs, he traded him to the White Sox! The White Sox traded him to the Cubs for filling station magnate George Bell!
George Bell proceeded to hit 63 homeruns for the sox, while Sammy has hit 510 for the Cubs! Some trade eh?
Ann Stewart: OMG That was harlious Wayne I'm going to post that on both blogs. I love the part where Laura Bush sprayed him with Mase and Jeb Bush is better off cause no one talks about his infidelity or how criminal his children are. That was so funny. That is a defiantly good posting material.
