    I did a double-take at that, but figured a quick trip to FSU would confirm it.

    :lol: Watching the Chrysler 200 commercial about Detroit I thought that at least Detroit has some beautiful figure skating. And then Alissa pops up on my screen. :D

    Maybe I'm not so crazy!

    She actually did a pretty decent imitation of Axl there.

    Yes, that one was good.

    Wheee for Alissa--and doing a spin, too!

    Just watched the Xtina performance - good god, child looks wrecked. She looks like a bad Cyndi Lauper drag queen, with a mop on her head :eek: At least she covered the lyric goof well, but....damn. That was bad.

    Watching the Superbowl here. My husband is frustrated trying to explain the game to me. I will never understand the point of football.

    We're watching for the commercials (kinda lame so far) and having an orgy of junk food--all the stuff that is normally "forbidden". We just found out our cat likes Doritos (he got into the bowl when we weren't looking). Maybe he's under the influence of the commericals?

    Glad to know I wasn't the only one thinking of Cyndi Lauper.

    Ya'll need to feel sorry for me. They will be talking abou this FOREVAH on the news in Milwaukee. I hate the Packers, always have.

    The Steelers are sorry excuse to represent a AFC team. They should have allowed the JEts to win.

    Hee ...

    Oh dear... I know someone high up in E-trade who's very involved with those commercials. They're apparently very popular. Guess you're just a contrarian, Gen.

    I am not that keen on them either, but I wouldn't tell my friend :shuffle:

    I have an honest question. However come baseball, ice-hockey, and basketball all have multi-game finals but not American football?

    Amer football is played once a week, ice hockey, basketball and baseball can play multiple games in a week. There is probably some physical reason for the frequency of play. Baseball season is 160 games, amer football is what 18 or 20??

    Football is played once a week, whereas the other sports have multiple games during a week. I am not sure what the reason is for that, but even in pop warner leagues I don't believe that football is played more than once a week.
    So in order to do a multiple game final, it would probably make the season last all year.

    Right now there is a mediation between players/owners/league. The league wants to extend the season by 2 games and decrease the preseason games by 2.

    oh, I know. I have friends who think they're HI-larious. I think they're less clever than the old "Where's the Beef?" ads from the '80s and just as irritating with repetition. :drama:

    Call me a contrarian too. They're just creepy.

    Congrats to the Pack. If you'd asked me before the game, I'd have thought I didn't really care, but as the game was going on, I didn't want to see Ben win again.

    :rofl: Same here. I said something about it being skating music to my ex-husband, and he was all "WTF are you doing thinking about skating during the Superbowl?"

    …..Philistine :wall: . No wonder I divorced him :p .
