Good morning all, are you excited for today? It is a marathon not a sprint but how are you getting ready? What are you doing today? Going to a party? Participating in our open thread? Day drinking?

I have been up awhile now and have made my bets for the day;

Over the 1:44 on the anthem, Aretha going to go long to unite the nation and keep peeps mind off Kaep’s kneeling.

More than 3.5 field goals, boys can kick

over 44.5 yards longest field goal, easy.

Under 56.5, run, run, run. I am nervous about this one but then I can cheer for low scoring.

James White to have 2 touchdowns. 9-1, too good not to take a 20 dollar flyer on.

As for libations, I started with Baileys and coffee and will move on to breakfast wine, then beer, then probably bourbon and red wine. I do not work tomorrow which is of much importance.

Before the game we have Foxy Footy v Man U, then Man City v Arsenal. Those are quite good matchups to kill time before the real drinking starts. After that there is 3 Ice Footbaw games because Bettman knows to get the hell out of the way of the Shield.

What will you be cooking, drinking, doing getting ready to hopefully see the meteor hit Megatron’s butthole?

To all of those who stay on the sidelines or lurk enter your information today as the powers that be will be approving them this morning. Except you pesky Russians.

Apparently there are groups of Saints fans protesting outside the Super Bowl and it’s more important than ever that the Rams win it all now

Off to a party this year, but just wanted to wish all you DFO’ers a good day. Except for the Pats fans among you — may you enjoy good drinks and snacks but a miserable game.

GO RAMS! OR METEOR!

Turns out I won’t be watching alone after all. Work colleague, also a Masshole, invited me to come over to his place to help run interference on his visiting in-laws, who apparently hate the Patriots as much as most of the commentariat here. He sent this as an example of the kind of grief he’s getting even before the game:

I begged off, but invoked reciprocity in the event he wanted to pull the ripcord, and he has accepted. So, I’ll at least be watching with a fellow P*ts fan.

Doktor Zymm

I just made myself a meat/cheese/bread/nut platter, and opened some wine to go with it. Way too lazy to go out for the game, will be watching Futurama reruns until then.

I’m off to the bar here in New England. Excited to see what happens!!!! Last year, I walked back home after the game in the rain. This year, rain doesn’t seem to be in the forecast for my walk back home. Weird.

Found a funny:

Agree.
Atwater was a hammer.
That’s coming from a Raiders fan and watching that guy kill week after week.

King Hippo

it hurt just watching him blow fuckers up

Tatums hit on Earl Campbell was HUGE

Atwaters hit on Okoye was HUGE too

King Hippo

agreed re both. Tatum absolutely killed on the footy pitch. I liked watching him too, despite the uniform! 😀

He was a real……… back breaker.

The only person who didn’t feel that comment was Daryl Stingley.

Lotta hate for Donks (and AFC West), but Atwater was a fucking stud

King Hippo

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

He had the ball skills, speed, range, and smarts to be able to play in today’s game. He was a team leader on a superb owl team, etc., etc. so no Peter King never considered him.

King Hippo

yeah, it was underrated just how rangy he was. Remarkable player.

King Hippo

Ty Fucking Law got in HoF over Atwater? A motherfucking above-average system CB? What was he best known for, other than holding every play??

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Why does this surprise you? I’m surprised two Donks got in.

King Hippo

It doesn’t surprise me, just makes me mad.

Like when the P*ts get crowned again in like 6 hours.

I can’t get angry since it was pretty inevitable. He influenced (by their own admission) the games other safeties already in.

The part where the journalist got murdered for exposing the fake coup against Erdogan? No, that part seemed totally normal.

There used to be big Turkish Airlines billboards around LAX featuring Kobe Bryant. They stopped using him after he admitted to a reporter that he had never been to Turkey.

King Hippo

well, y wud he? Plenty of womens to butt-rape rite hear in teh US-of-A!

Gratliff

Never know when you’re gonna get an American to defect. Turkey becomes relatively more sane by comparison every day.

Understated part of the Attitude Era was every fan trying to ruin every live experience for every other fan with the largest signs they could. Also, the “Shawn is a God” sign 3 signs away from the “Shawn is a fag” sign gives you an idea of the discourse.
