The good thing is I have no reason to watch or listen to the half-time show for this year's SB, that's for sure. Gaga, gag, gag, gag. :D

Have to agree with you on half time show of garbage.

Skipping the game is your loss. There's going to be a ton of points put on the board.

I'll be in the London on business so I'm not sure how much I'll see with the time difference. But might as well check out the UK commercials while I'm at it.

Looks like the Grey Cup isn't the only championship game that had trouble selling tickets. Still lots on the market for the Super Duper Bowl, that is if you are willing to shell out anywhere between $2500 - $25000.

It's the "Trump Bowl", the NFL as Conservative big business as it gets of course. Even Trump was too liberal for them to want him in their little group. :wink:

And just for the record, I'm a little guy with not much money, never made over $31 an hour in my working life and living on a pension of about $2100 a month plus CPP of $690 a month, who has many conservative values and actually cherishes some of these conservative values ie. a surgeon who wants to take a "wait and see approach" on a tumour, like my wife has, that may or may not be malignant based on pathology but it's a gland, thyroid, and you don't just take out glands willy nilly. Try some easy drugs first to see if it shrinks and go from there. Conservative approach, not slice and dice right away. :thup:

They should never show players kneeling. I'm saying they are liberal for allowing this behavior.

I hear you chinese but the NFL liberal? Come on, they had to allow it for image sakes ie. not to show they are intruding in players personal lives, but ask all the NFL owners if they are Republican or Democrat and my guess is at least 80 percent are Republican in more ways than Donald Trump even.

Hey, others are saying "Trump Bowl". :lol:

Super Bowl or Trump Bowl?

Aerial, my wife and I and two other couples that are traveling with us wish your Wife and you only the best. We will not forget as we keep both of you in our thoughts and prayers.
We are currently in the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX before we head to Houston tomorrow.

Appreciate that challenger and have a great time and a safe time at the game. Should be a good one.

If you're a football fan, you'll probably watch the game. Buying into the hype has nothing to do with it.

Sure if you believe that?

I'm in London at the moment on business and the game starts around 11pm here so I'll likely watch a quarter.

Just my obervation. You can barley tell the Superbowl is today. Virtually no coverage saw one guy in a Ravens jersey at outlr hotel so perhaps more will come out the wordwork. No hours long pre game coverage on BBC or any other network.

Besides EPL. Every pub here is covering Six Nations Rugby. Nothing at all advertising people to watch 'the big game' here.

Despite the good attendance of the games here, the NFL is barley a niche.
