What A Game!



Puppy Bowl II on the Animal Planet was awesome this year!! It totally rocked.

Why, what were you watching tonight?

P.S.: Congrats Paul!! And to all the Steelers-supporting readerrs on Sundries. Commiserations and hugs to the Seattle fans. You tried, but your clock management skills need working on, dudes.

  • Hines Ward has been the heart and soul of his team for years in my opinion and showed it again. It has been a storybook year trying to get into the Super Bowl for Bettis.
    He's hung it up, the bus has stopped. Thanks, Victoria.
    Who won the puppy bowl? Hopefully not that haughty, little French number.

  • That white poodle should have been flagged for a personal foul.

    Maybe even kicked out of the game.

    Hard to resist the puppies, innit?

    I was a bit struck that Hines Ward got the MVP. Surely it was Roethlisberger who had the better game, overall?

    But as you say, Paul, Ward is the heart-and-soul of the game, and Big Ben has lots of time to be an MVP.

    Did you hear during the game that Danny Marino (also a Pittsburgh local lad, as you know), told Roethlisberger that he should enjoy every minute of his time at the SB?

    Wise words. Second year QB phenoms may never see another Super Bowl again...

    He's hung it up, the bus has stopped. Thanks, Victoria.

    No problems, love. I only back winners in life, no matter where they come from. :)

    Nah. Fifi threw in the towel before the 3rd quarter was over. ;)

    Cheers,

    She was vicious! I think the Bowl Cam even caught her going wee inside it, in Romanowski-like usage of dirty tricks.

    I wouldn't know, XWL.

    I was watching the Lingerie Bowl. :)

    Yes, I did. Wise words as usual from a quarterback who has always been class throughout his career not like that tipsy Namath from Near Pgh. who spends his time now, going around trying to kiss female sportscasters during halftime. In fairness, he only did it once (on air) and she put him in his place. I doubt Ben will lose himself, doesn't seem the type.
    Marino is a class act, maybe Shula's influence?
    For The Steelers, we'll wait now and see what free agents, salary caps and the draft bring. For now, it's a good day.

    Ah, he's also from Penn?? What do you do, grow QBs in trees up there? ;)

    John Elway I knew about.

    Funny you should mention that! My friends just spoke about that accosting of Suzy Kolber by Namath some years ago.

    I mentioned that I thought it was Michelle Tafoya, but Jim thought it was Suzy.

    Either way, it was funny. If sad.

    Marino is a class act, maybe Shula's influence?

    Don't get me wrong, I love Danny, but I never thought he was that classy.

    Shula is though. And ram tough-macho, the way men used to be (like my dad).

    For The Steelers, we'll wait now and see what free agents, salary caps and the draft bring. For now, it's a good day.

    Oh darling, don't even think about that!

    Enjoy it until at least August! :)

    Me so sleepy. I will veg and post tomorrow some more.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • I thought that the gadget play in Puppy Bowl II was awesome. The old bury the football in the endzone trick worked to perfection!

    Seattle lost the game almost as much as Pittsburgh won it. Seattle had their opportunities but the Steelers really did shut down Shaun Alexander which made the difference. The other point was that no one came up big for Seattle unlike Pittsburgh's great individual plays.

    Yep! I do believe that Jim Kelly - Buffalo Bills - is also a Pennsylvanian. And where is Joe Montana from?

    "Red Indian 42 Bury the bone", I think you'll find the play is called. ;)

    That's a very good synopsis of the game.

    I suppose the only thing we should mention, which certainly has been the gripe of 'Hawk fans in another forum I go to, is that the officiating was lousy.

    Now I believe that the Steelers were the better team, for all the reasons Renato mentioned (esp. that breakout play by Willie Parker, which wasn't even sniffed at by the harrassed Alexander), but it is true that there were one or two flubbed calls.

    But no matter! It's in the books. Pittsburgh, champs!

    Florida! Actually I dunno. :)

    All I know about Montana (whose 49'ers v. Bengals 1989 SB was the first gridiron game was the first I have vivid recollections of), was that he went to Notre Dame.

    Benning, it's pretty classy of you not to be whining about the Seahawks loss.

    I know you're an Iggles fan, and not necessary from Seattle, but hey. It's still decent of you not to be griping about the blown calls. ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Sacrilege!! Montana is also from Pittsburgh. Okay, maybe from a county next to Allegheny. Same with Jim Kelly - Butler County just N. of Pgh.

    Blown calls are in every game. That's football. The 75 yd. touchdown run and the gadget touchdown were legitimate, that's 14 points.

    Heh, ESPN SportsNation has a map of the U.S., the question is whether blown calls affected the Super Bowl......guess which is the only state saying No....all the others say yes.(Link on my blog if you can't find it but I never advise going there)

    My respect to you too, Benning. Very classy.

    Hey Victoria? What is WR Wards first name? Okay, it's not spelled the same but still...

  • Ahhh, as an Iggles fan I know all about the losing! (Sillies, Cryers, Snickers) And now, living in the Tampa Bay area, well! Gad!

    So I enjoy what I can and hope for the best! LOL

    *Grrrr! Rats! Dagnabbit! Grrr!*

    See? Equanimity at all times. Hehehee!
