Incredible 100yard touchdown run there.

Re: Why So Little Superbowl Hype This Year?

Funny, I had no horse in this race. But after hearing some asshole upstairs from me stomp on the floor (which is, of course, also my ceiling) every time Pittsburgh scores, I hope Phoenix wins.

Not that I have anything against the Steelers. I just want that asshole to knock it off.

Yeah, I was wondering. I woldn've expected with Arizona's extreme underdog-ness there would've been a thread.

Yeah, that 100yd TD interception return was amazing. Arizona is getting its ass handed to it.

Now, if it were Detroit vs say, a shitty high school team, I'd watch. Just to see the Lions lose another game.

I haven't checked but I suspect that, oh I don't know, the Sports forum might have one or two Superbowl related threads...

There's some "related" threads but no live commentary thread with constant commentary.

I was looking for a commentary thread, too. It's weird that there isn't one.

Re: Why So Little Superbowl Hype This Year?

Really? That IS a bit surprising I guess.

It's a pretty engrossing & up and down game though; I can understand why people might not have time to watch & be online. I've only just got back online myself and will turn off again now to watch the last couple of minutes.

Re: Why So Little Superbowl Hype This Year?

Running commentary thread for a football game, especially the Super Bowl would be weird. Hard to type with a beer in one hand and a chicken wing in the other, plus, your laptop would go flying off your lap everytime you jumped up when the Steelers pounded AZ some more.

Maybe it's because this is the one day even Trekkies have invitations or some company. Oops!
