OT: NFL/NHL thread

i estimate that absolutely noone gives a damn about the NHL, so by folding that thread into this one, we won’t distract from what this thread is really about: boner pills, blood doping (is it low t?), and…jesus christ did mike vick just throw another ####### interception?

wow that guy blew past the tackle
   3202. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 06:54 PM (#4361388)
I take that back. I do know exactly what Kruger did as a celebration there. His ictus wasn't that great, though.

Thanks Harvey. Who performed?

lassus

alicia keys with a boys hairstyle

just not good. no visual eye candy for the guys and the performance might as well have been done by tape recorder at a minor league baseball game
   3207. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 06:58 PM (#4361393)

   3213. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:03 PM (#4361400)
that's terrible ball skills by the niner defender

c'mon
   3214. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:03 PM (#4361401)
How does Flacco keep getting away with this ####?
   3215. A Fatty Cow That Need Two Seats Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:04 PM (#4361402)
looking up chris christie's bio
   3216. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:04 PM (#4361403)
it would help if niner linemen could drop the qb when he's sitting there to be sacked
   3217. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:05 PM (#4361405)
biff

flacco is on a hot streak. nobody talks about hot streaks in the nfl for some reason. that is a baseball type discussion
   3218. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:05 PM (#4361406)
I was in Best Buy today. Looking to buy one of those Bose sound docks/speakers.
   3219. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:07 PM (#4361409)
fast and furious commercial----no good
   3220. A Fatty Cow That Need Two Seats Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:07 PM (#4361410)
tanks, though
   3221. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:07 PM (#4361411)
Fast and Furious 6, jeez louise.

OK, does anyone know when the Iron Man trailer is supposed to show up?
   3222. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:08 PM (#4361412)
toyota commercial--terrible
   3223. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:08 PM (#4361413)
The dog in the Kaley Cuoco commercial not cute enough.
   3224. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:10 PM (#4361414)
liking this tight end pass stuff
   3225. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:10 PM (#4361415)
There's already a trailer for Iron Man 3. Or is there supposed to be another one?
   3226. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:11 PM (#4361416)
New one. There was recently a teaser to a new trailer showing up at the superbowl. Unless I'm wrong. Let me go check my nerd sources.

Yep, a new one. God knows when, though.
   3227. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:11 PM (#4361417)
michael james, the only confirmed black hobbit
   3228. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:12 PM (#4361418)
Suggs is getting completely frozen by the option.
   3229. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:12 PM (#4361419)
I'm reasonably sure that there is an IM3 trailer, as well as "Into Darkness" being shown tonight.
   3230. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:13 PM (#4361421)
Wow. James does all that work just to get back to the line of scrimmage and then just coughs it up.
   3231. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:13 PM (#4361422)
that;s a fumble
   3232. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:13 PM (#4361424)
Wut.
   3233. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:13 PM (#4361425)
Are they reviewing this? Clearly a fumble.
   3234. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:14 PM (#4361426)
I think whistles just cost Baltimore a touchdown.
   3235. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:14 PM (#4361427)
doritas--another ace
   3236. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:14 PM (#4361428)
calvin klein--no comment
   3237. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:15 PM (#4361430)
I like the wolf commercial.
   3238. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:15 PM (#4361431)
cars.com--does not compute
   3239. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:15 PM (#4361432)
Oh, clearly a fumble.

Cute Wolf Puppy is close enough for...

Cute Dog [X]
   3240. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:16 PM (#4361433)
The announcers aren't going to mention that Arthur Jones was never down.
   3241. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:19 PM (#4361434)
Nice catch.
   3242. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:19 PM (#4361435)
Nice catch.
   3243. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:20 PM (#4361437)
Niners shooting themselves in the foot.
   3244. Der-K is at half whelm. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:22 PM (#4361439)
I thought cars.com did fine
   3245. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:22 PM (#4361440)
look at the ravens

not many teams drive the field against san fran
   3246. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:22 PM (#4361441)
Didn't the Niners used to have a nasty, brutal defense?
   3247. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:22 PM (#4361442)
San Francisco looks incredibly rattled.
   3248. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:23 PM (#4361443)
budweiser commercial--lame
   3249. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:24 PM (#4361444)
budweiser commercial--lame

Totally.
   3250. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:24 PM (#4361445)
go daddy--every year their commercials s8ck. it's the most reliable aspect of the super bowl
   3251. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:26 PM (#4361446)
Milk commercial is awesome.
   3252. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:26 PM (#4361447)
KHAAAAN!
   3253. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:26 PM (#4361448)
got milk---kind of dumb
   3254. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:27 PM (#4361449)
I like the Rock. I approve of that commercial.

That Trek thing was a TV spot, not really a trailer.
   3255. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:27 PM (#4361450)
hyundai again with nothing special
   3256. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:28 PM (#4361451)
Come on, Niners.
   3257. NTNgod Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:28 PM (#4361452)
Given how many movies the Rock has coming out this year, is going to be shooting this year, and he's returned to wrestling - when does the guy sleep?
   3258. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:28 PM (#4361453)
and the kid qb makes a terrible throw
   3259. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:28 PM (#4361454)
This game is going to get ugly if this keeps going like this.
   3260. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:29 PM (#4361455)
I know I shouldn't have reactions like this to any playoff scenario (especially when the team I root for was twice beat by the Giants), but I can't believe the Ravens are going to be the NFL champions this year.
   3261. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:30 PM (#4361456)
moss didn't even jump after the ball.
   3262. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:31 PM (#4361458)
I can't believe the Ravens are going to be the NFL champions this year.
I know I'm supposed to respect the Ravens and all that, but there's something about them that I just really, really dislike. Maybe I'm just disliking football more and more as I get older. Luckily, I also hate the Niners, so it's all good.
   3263. Der-K is at half whelm. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:33 PM (#4361460)
Thumbs up for milk
   3264. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:34 PM (#4361461)
I know I'm supposed to respect the Ravens and all that, but there's something about them that I just really, really dislike.


I really dislike Lewis, Suggs and Pollard, but they also have a bunch of guys like Ed Reed and Ray Rice who are easy to root for.
   3265. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:35 PM (#4361462)
niners finally make a stand
   3266. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:35 PM (#4361463)
Uhmm... wah?
   3267. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:35 PM (#4361464)
curious call
   3268. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:36 PM (#4361465)
TRICKERATION DENIED!
   3269. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:36 PM (#4361467)
TAKE THE POINTS.
   3270. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:36 PM (#4361468)
Nice fake design, but they should have used it in a shorter yardage situation.
   3271. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:36 PM (#4361469)
I'm usually in favor of that kind of trickery, but with 9 yards to go?
   3272. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:37 PM (#4361470)
OH

MY

GOD

I

AM

NOT

WATCHING THIS COMMERCIAL.

volkswagon--bah
   3274. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:37 PM (#4361472)
The power of German engineering is to...make people talk in a stereotypical Jamaican accent?
   3275. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:38 PM (#4361473)
Golden Boy is going to last about 7 episodes.
   3276. Der-K is at half whelm. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:38 PM (#4361474)
That was dumb, Baltimore - thanks!

VW: F-

commissioner is a shameless whore
   3278. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:38 PM (#4361476)
Aww, look how cute and family-friendly the NFL is. Except for all the violence.
   3279. DA Baracus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:40 PM (#4361478)
9 yards is a long way to go with a kicker.
   3280. Der-K is at half whelm. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:40 PM (#4361479)
Bring Back Smith! ;)
   3281. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:40 PM (#4361480)
that was a give up call on 3rd down

it's the super bowl fellas.
   3282. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:41 PM (#4361481)
SF clearly just wants to get the hell out of the first half. That was a play designed to kill clock, and nothing more.
   3283. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:41 PM (#4361482)
coke?? booo
   3284. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:42 PM (#4361483)
subway

scr8w that guy
   3285. Lassus Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:42 PM (#4361484)
That Coke commercial was DUMB
   3286. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:45 PM (#4361486)
offensive interference?

yup.
   3287. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:46 PM (#4361487)
creepy taco bell commercial
   3288. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:46 PM (#4361488)
skechers---ok
   3289. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:47 PM (#4361489)
why does asian chick keep showing up on tv? she's boring
   3290. NTNgod Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:47 PM (#4361490)
So perhaps 10% chance Alex Smith starts second half?
   3291. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:48 PM (#4361492)
UN. #######. BELIEVE. ABLE.
   3292. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:48 PM (#4361493)
Unreal.
   3293. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:48 PM (#4361494)
that's ridiculous

give all credit to the ravens
   3294. JJ1986 Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:49 PM (#4361495)
I am somewhat pleased that Culliver blew that.
   3295. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:49 PM (#4361496)
That was ####### sad defense by the Niners.
   3296. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:49 PM (#4361498)
number 29 of san fran has been awful this half

i presume baltimore saw something on film

because that guy is a disaster
   3297. Gamingboy Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:49 PM (#4361499)
I do believe that's the football equivalent of the Ichiro-at-home-plate play.
   3298. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:50 PM (#4361500)
lincoln--blah
   3299. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:51 PM (#4361502)
Flacco's 13/20 with 192 yards and three TDs already.
   3300. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: February 03, 2013 at 07:51 PM (#4361503)
When has Culliver been terrific this half? He's been Flacco's biatch for the entire game.
