Soccer Over All

Got ’em!

What happens when fans are pressured into a night at the opera taking place simultaneously as a huge soccer match?

Pretty awesome. I hope they gave them free Heineken.

When it comes to filmmaking, sometimes there are ways to create excitement without expensive special effects, crazy camera movements or random explosions.

I’m looking at you McG.

While the video above is under a minute in length it is still able to purvey the exhilaration felt when it watching one of the most exciting “sports” in the world. They were able to capture the thrills with hard work, solid planning and effective execution.

Heres to a new year and decade of fun and innovative art.

Running Super Bowl Blog

Filed under: life, Sports, TV — Tags: , , , — Owen @ 7:56 pm

I was writing this on my phone on Sunday:

  • No way he’s in. Arizona looks terrible right now.
  • Rothlisberger is starting to look more and more like a hall a famer and he’s only a year older than me. Fuck.
  • Seriously, Arizona’s D was underrated for a reason.
  • I’m not saying it’s over but Pittsburgh has scored there first two drives.
  • Arizona’s offense is starting to click. As I was writing that they found boldim for a huge gain and then they found ben patrick for a sick touch. This might be good.
  • None of the kick offs have reached the endzone. Weird.
  • First stop by Az and then a big special teams play. Returns are my favorite plays in football. But Mo is swinging for sure.
  • WOW. Picked. I’m glad that this game is not a blow out and is getting interesting. The Arizona running game is picking up and Fitzgerald finally got a catch.
  • Haha biggest play of that guys career. We were just talking about what plays the cards need to make before the end of the half and then they get a hundred yard int return.

——————————————————-

So that’s halftime and my hands were really greasy and I gave it up on the phone. Overall though, I pretty much feel the same as everyone else that had no emotional investments to any of these teams. I expected a boring game, possibly a blowout, definitely not the back and forth battle that i was presented with. The past two Super Bowls have been fantastic really and I’m looking forward to the next one.

On a side note, my friend, who I am pretty sure has run marathons in the past, ate a whole pizza to the face.

So this was my running blog about the Super Bowl commercials. I stopped around half time with this too and I don’t feel like posting the actual videos and making this a super long post, I’m just linking them. All in all, this is a fairly useless post.

Pepsi makes terrible comparisons. This commercial just kind of pissed me off. 

Vroom vroom party starter. I’m pretty excited for Conan to take over the Tonight Show. 

I will be first in line at Fast and Furious and definitely in the theatre for GI Joe.  Probably not Year One or Land of the Lost though. 

I’d rather have an ostrich.

I hate the G commercials. But I can identify almost everyone in them because I watch way too much Sportscenter.

David Abernathy is a beast.

Take these broken wings, shankapotamus.

I want to draw things in life with my finger.

The 3d commercials gave me headache. (Fuck linking them.)

I’ll post my favorites that I may have missed.  

– why’s the first guy on the scene gotta be black?

————————–

The commercials were great but the special programs on Sunday were also great. I know a ton of people watched the halftime show because of Bruce Springsteen, but those people missed a much more entertaining show on ABC at the time. There was a special presentation of the show WipeOut, which is basically MXC in America. The main difference is that American producers don’t even pretend to make the course geared towards finishing but showcasing the wipeouts. It’s awesome.

And after the game, The Office put down a great episode. Watch the full thing on Hulu but the cold open is below. They marketed the guest appearances heavy but they did it well enough that I don’t think the show jumped the shark. 

And what’s a Superbowl without a little porn. You stay classy, Arizona.

Dick Clark Is Old As Shit

Robbie Maddison probably won’t last as long doing shit like this. 

I didn’t see this live; I was preoccupied at midnight. But I caught the replay and in my head I was like, “That was cool but he should have went over it…I wonder what that 2nd ramp was for…wait…what…WHAT THE FUCKKKK!!!”

Someone will probably die on New Years Eve on ESPN in the next 7 years…and it will be sponsored by Red Bull.

Al Davis is Fucking Crazy

Seriously, if he was on the street with a cup of change and a dirty overcoat, I’d cross the street.
