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?

Dear Axe, please die.
   7502. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:46 PM (#4650409)
ok, like the commercial with the bear

mostly because I really like bears
   7503. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:46 PM (#4650410)
That perfume commercial wins the worst, most offensive commercial in a couple years.

The Chobani ad was OK, but not great.

eta: That was an Axe ad? Makes sense. When http://overcompensating.com/oc/index.php?comic=263 isn't an unfair take on your advertising, you might be awful.

Colbert would like a word with you.
   7505. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:47 PM (#4650412)
so there is an actual East Rutherford, NJ.
   7506. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:47 PM (#4650413)
was kevin Costner wearing a decorative scarf?
   7507. Dale Sams Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:48 PM (#4650414)
It didn't take very long for Joe Buck to be wrong about punting.


Well, he was right. I have no idea WTF Denver is doing. A handoff on 3rd and 10 and punting from there? WTF.

Uhm...Seattle is going to win, you guys can stop throwing the game.
   7508. Chokeland Bill Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:49 PM (#4650415)
Lynch almost took that one to the house.
   7509. Russlan is fond of Dillon Gee Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:50 PM (#4650416)
Worst thing about this blowout is all we are going to hear is how Peyton choked.
   7510. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:50 PM (#4650417)
agree with DS--a draw on 3rd & 10 means it's 4th down mode
   7511. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:51 PM (#4650418)
Worst thing about this blowout is all we are going to hear is how Peyton choked.

well, we all know Eli's better
   7512. booond Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:51 PM (#4650419)
Worst thing about this blowout is all we are going to hear is how Peyton choked.


His play is deserving of criticism.
   7513. AuntBea Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:51 PM (#4650420)
Yeah the only drama left is whether Denver will score any point at all.
   7514. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:53 PM (#4650421)

Kia has no clue what luxury looks or sounds like, huh? They should take tips from Maserati.
   7516. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:53 PM (#4650423)
I approve the use of that pitch pipe, of which I have at least two. I wonder who the singer was.

Ketchup on hot dog? F-
   7518. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:54 PM (#4650425)
Mustard has too much class to advertise during this.
   7519. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:55 PM (#4650426)
Aikman has never done the math on coming back from down 29.
   7520. stanmvp48 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:55 PM (#4650427)
Yeah. Do the math Aikman.
   7521. Monty Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:55 PM (#4650428)
Oh, come on.
   7522. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:56 PM (#4650429)
THIS IS IS HILARIOUS!
   7523. JJ1986 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:56 PM (#4650430)
First good pass of the game and it's still a disaster.
   7524. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:56 PM (#4650431)
I want odds on a shutout.
   7525. Srul Itza At Home Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:56 PM (#4650432)
This is going to be a shut out.
   7526. yo la tengo Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4650433)
Who would have made money in Vegas betting that Peyton would be shut out tonight?
   7527. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4650434)
Bruce Willy clearly hasn't been watching this game.
   7528. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4650435)
Aren't they still SIX turnovers from the SB record?
   7529. yo la tengo Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4650436)
I wouldn't mind a hug from Fred Armisen
   7530. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:57 PM (#4650437)
That Willis thing was a good concept, but poorly executed.
   7531. stanmvp48 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:58 PM (#4650438)
If necessary Fox will kick a FG to avoid a shutout.
   7532. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:58 PM (#4650439)
When is Portlandia coming back? I miss that show.

Not Floyd Mayweather I'm guessing.
   7534. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:58 PM (#4650441)
Ugh, this commercial offends me. #### you Budweiser. Or rather InBev, you Belgian #####.
   7535. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:59 PM (#4650442)
When is Portlandia coming back? I miss that show.

February 27th.
   7536. Srul Itza At Home Posted: February 02, 2014 at 08:59 PM (#4650443)
So, is "Defense wins Championships" back in vogue?
   7537. Dale Sams Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:02 PM (#4650445)
Will this be the city of Seattle's first championship? Did the Sonics ever win one?
   7538. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:03 PM (#4650446)
Will this be the city of Seattle's first championship? Did the Sonics ever win one?

78-79 season
   7539. JJ1986 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:03 PM (#4650447)
Did the Sonics ever win one?


They won one in the late 70s.
   7540. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:03 PM (#4650448)
Who on Denver hasn't looked bad?
   7541. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:04 PM (#4650449)
I think it's pretty clear that it's not just the Seahawks being good. The Broncos should be ashamed of themselves.
   7542. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650450)
Will this be the city of Seattle's first championship? Did the Sonics ever win one?

78-79 season

OK--without looking--who was their leading scorer that year?

or for that matter--name ANYBODY on that team

the coach is easier
   7543. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650451)
The Germans invented the car, Bob.

   7544. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650452)
Will this be the city of Seattle's first championship?


assuming you exclude U of Washington MNC in college football in '90.
   7545. SteveF Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650453)
I think it's pretty clear that it's not just the Seahawks being good. The Broncos should be ashamed of themselves.

Yeah. I think most people who watch the NFL would agree the Seahawks are better...just not this much better.
   7546. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650454)
Sikma, Jack
   7547. Howling John Shade Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650455)
"Is there anything more American than America?" Dylan's lyrics have gone downhill.
   7548. Roger McDowell spit on me! Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:05 PM (#4650456)
Gus Williams? I also remember Jack Sikma...
   7549. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:06 PM (#4650458)
not leading scorer, Tulo--but he was on that team
   7550. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:06 PM (#4650459)
Gus Williams? I also remember Jack Sikma...

bingo and bingo
   7551. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:07 PM (#4650460)
Paul Silas was on that team too, that's all I'm gonna get. Lenny Wilkens was coach.
   7552. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:07 PM (#4650461)
Dennis Johnson (pre-Keltics) and downtown Freddie Brown were there also
   7553. Monty Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:07 PM (#4650462)
The Seahawks will join the 78-79 Sonics and the juggernaut WNBA team Seattle Storm (2004 and 2010)
   7554. Graham & the 15-win "ARod Vortex of suck" Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:08 PM (#4650463)
That Chrysler/Bob Dylan ad was bizarre, and I say that as a big fan of Dylan's music, his newer releases included.
   7555. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:08 PM (#4650464)
The Broncos look like a JV team. They have no faith in their players.
   7556. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:09 PM (#4650465)
Lenny Wilkens was coach.


Isn't that the default "NBA coach" answer on Jeopardy?
Just like "Babe Ruth" is the default "MLB player", and "Wayne Gretzky" for "NHL player"?
   7557. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4650466)
sn't that the default "NBA coach" answer on Jeopardy?


I think it depends on the era. Wilkens, Larry Brown, and George Karl are 3 good ones, heck Don Nelson too.
   7558. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4650467)
Isn't that the default "NBA coach" answer on Jeopardy?

Phil Jackson probably gets used more often.

EDIT: A quick perusal of J-Archive shows many Jackson mentions and few mentions of Wilkens, Brown, or Karl.
   7559. Dale Sams Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4650468)
I mean, they literally look like they are throwing the game.
   7560. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:11 PM (#4650469)
Great catch.
   7561. Howling John Shade Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4650470)
That Chrysler/Bob Dylan ad was bizarre, and I say that as a big fan of Dylan's music, his newer releases included.
It looked like they were trying to make a sequel to the eminem ad.
   7562. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4650471)
good observation by aikman on the defender wrapping up the receiver early
   7563. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4650473)
36-8 and the Denvers have more yards
   7564. JJ1986 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4650474)
Does Aikman really not know what the multiples of 7 are?
   7565. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:12 PM (#4650475)
OK, they have 15 minutes to score four touchdowns while conceding none.
   7566. Dale Sams Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:13 PM (#4650476)
I see the Seattle Sounders lost two Soccer Bowls.
   7567. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:13 PM (#4650477)
Always nice to set SB records while you are getting crushed.
   7568. stanmvp48 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:13 PM (#4650478)
nope
   7569. zack Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:13 PM (#4650479)
Yeah, don't you only need one 2-pointer? 8x4+3 still doesn't get you to 36.
   7570. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:13 PM (#4650480)
has any NFL game at any time in history at any time in the game had a score of 36-8???
   7571. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:14 PM (#4650481)
the nfl ad was pretty pedestrian
   7572. stanmvp48 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:15 PM (#4650483)
onside kick?
   7573. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:15 PM (#4650484)
has any NFL game at any time in history at any time in the game had a score of 36-8???

according to pro football reference............no
   7574. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:17 PM (#4650485)
acc. to play index on FBRef, no game has ever ended 36-8.

coke (gin) Harvey
   7575. Chokeland Bill Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:17 PM (#4650486)
That was a really bad onside kick.
   7576. Monty Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:18 PM (#4650488)
Wrong way, Golden.
   7577. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:19 PM (#4650489)
weird scores--I remember in 1970, the Cowboys won a late regular season game (against my Browns) by 6-2 and then, a couple weeks later won a playoff game 5-0 against the Lions
   7578. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:19 PM (#4650490)
We've had a 3-2 and a 6-4 in college over the past decade or so.
   7579. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:20 PM (#4650492)
What Packers fan is naming their kid Adrian any time in the last 7 years.

to coke's credit ashwaubenon is part of greater green bay
   7582. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:23 PM (#4650495)
glad to see seattle not sitting on the ball.

tune'em up boys. ain't no game next weekend
   7583. dlf Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:23 PM (#4650496)
Is Carroll trying to get the record for point margin?
   7584. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:23 PM (#4650497)
If I'm not mistaken, Ashwaubenon's city limits are about a lag putt away from Lambeau Field's parking lot.
   7585. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:24 PM (#4650498)
well, 43-8 is even weirderer
   7586. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:24 PM (#4650499)
I think it has yet to dawn on aikman/buck that the Denver defense is pedestrian and when not playing with a lead is in big trouble

playing defense from ahead is an easier situation. by far
   7587. Jolly Old St. Nick Is A Jolly Old St. Crip Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:24 PM (#4650500)
HURRY, HURRY!!!!!
   7588. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:25 PM (#4650501)
Ashwaubenon's city limits are about a lag putt away from Lambeau Field's parking lot.

correct
   7589. Lassus Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:25 PM (#4650502)
That technology commercial was like Gaelan's nightmare.
   7590. Jolly Old St. Nick Is A Jolly Old St. Crip Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:26 PM (#4650503)
36-8 and the Denvers have more yards

In the 1940 championship game the Redskins matched the Bears in first downs and had nearly 100 more passing yards. Still managed to lose 73 to 0.
   7591. stanmvp48 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:26 PM (#4650504)
They just went over the O/U line, I believe
   7592. The Yankee Clapper Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:26 PM (#4650505)
PETA didn't like Joe Namath's fur coat:
PETA @peta
TOO many. RT @a_ryan88 Yo @peta, how many animals died to make Joe Namath's fur coat?

What about the pigskin?
   7593. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4650506)
so someone has 3 and 8 in the grid and was thinking, before the game--that's not bad, 28-23--sounds plausible....
   7594. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:27 PM (#4650507)
This Seattle defense never stops hitting and hitting hard.
   7595. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:32 PM (#4650509)
and two of them have knocked themselves out
   7596. Dale Sams Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:33 PM (#4650510)
There's been so many game stoppages, they've run out of commercials already?
   7597. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:34 PM (#4650511)
they've run out of commercials already?

thank heaven

the commercials this evening have been subpar
   7598. JJ1986 Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:34 PM (#4650512)
Decker's not riding into free agency on a high note.
   7599. Publius Publicola Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:36 PM (#4650513)
Yup. Brady's better.
   7600. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: February 02, 2014 at 09:37 PM (#4650514)
jj

he's the bill Schroeder of the Denver broncos.

bill Schroeder was a tall guy who could run who played for green bay and after favre helped him to a 1000 yard season Schroeder signed with Detroit and was out of the league in 2 years.
