NFL News:

  • Following up on a balls comment from last night’s Open Thread, the Super Bowl viewership rating was a 41.1, or an average of 98.2 million viewers.
    • The lowest viewership rating since 2003, Super Bowl XXXVII – Raiders vs. Bucs.
    • Market share varied across the country:
      • Boston had a 57% viewership
      • LA had 44%  
        • Highest since 1996.
      • New Orleans was 26%, indicating the “Blackout Bowl” mantra had legs.
        • Lowest since 1998.
    • It’s also the first one with viewership under 100 million since the advent of digital streaming.
      • Digital numbers take the overall viewership to 100.7 million.
    • The all-time viewership record was Super Bowl XLIX at 114 million.

 

  • Legalized gambling on the Super Bowl cost New Jersey $4.5 million.
    • Just under $35 million was bet on the Super Bowl at New Jersey sportsbooks, according to the Sports Gaming Authority.
    • In comparison, Nevada sportsbooks won almost $11 million on the nearly $150 million bet on the game, according to the Nevada Gaming Authority.
      • The second-most ever bet on a Super Bowl in Nevada.
        • Most = $158 million, on last year’s game.
      • The largest Nevada bet was $2.0 million on the Rams.
  • Despite his protégé looking like dogshit & only scoring three points, the Bengals have named Rams QB coach Zac Taylor as their new head coach.
    • Prior to the Rams, he was an OC for the Dolphins, and in 2016 was the OC at the University of Cincinnati.
  • Brian Flores admitted during his first press conference in Miami that there will be rebuilding.
    • Dolphins owner Stephen Ross reiterated his comments from last month about looking for “a long-term leader of the team who would build a winning culture in Miami”.
    • That’s likely also why Flores insisted on a five-year guaranteed contract.

Finally, the Patriots held their victory parade today.

One of my senators co-sponsored S-1, the anti-BDS bill, and for some reason I’m irrationally angry about it beyond normal parameters. I sense there is something that my depression is trying to keep me from doing, which makes sense, but … FUCK.

Too bad they’re probably gonna trade Zucc. I’ll have a sad when that happens.

How did they okay her so far away from the audience that its out of focus? Its too distracting, plus its sets up a joke that the American people is out of focus with the American people.

I’m not sure what’s more distracting, the rambling start or the lighting making her look like she’s in front of a blue screen.

Pence calls his wife, Mother, and Pelosi looks like a drunk Lucile Bluth. She tricked him into having sex at some point

If you don’t mind me giving you a bit of help-a bear will always beat to a pulp an island. That’s just basic geometry.

I think the Holes put up a buck-twenty on us tonight. No fucks given for whatever Herr Fuhrer said, hope it got even worse ratings (comparatively) than THAT GAME.

Here’s the best song I heard driving around in the 76 degree weather today:

Just let Trump keep talking US Gov’t. Eventually it will be January 20, 2025 and he’ll be term limited out and this National Emergency will be over.
