Kurt Warner To Be Looking For Work

It seems Kurt and the Cardinals could not get a deal worked out and he will have to test the free agency market according to ESPN News.

I think it is crazy for them to let him walk. The guy just took a team that was really struggling and got them into the Super Bowl. Give the dude his money Cardinals Super Powers or you will be stuck with Matt Leinart!

Watch Out Brad and Angie...

In case anyone cares...this hot couple got married today in Los Angeles.

US Weekly reports the ceremony was "very small and intimate".

Tom's kid was in attendance along with his ex, Bridget Moynahan (awkward).

Just what the world needs another super couple making us all look bad.

Bears Fan Charged $28,000 To Watch A Game

Slingbox seems like such a wonderful invention, unless you get a $28,000 phone bill for watching 2 hours of a football game.

Wayne Burdick was about to depart on a cruise out of the port of Miami and decided to turn on his laptop to watch a couple of hours of the Bears game before they left.

Now I have heard of being charged outrageous rates when out of the country or in international waters but he was sitting at the port of Miami.

A month goes by and Burdick receives a bill in the mail from AT&T. Can you imagine his shock when he opens a bill for $28,067.31???? I am pretty sure I would soil myself.

Burdick has someone at the Chicago Sun Times investigate and it turns out his laptop was picking up a signal it should not have been and that is why he was charged the higher rates. Of course AT&T ate the cost and Burdick the die hard Bears fan was a happy camper again.

Moral of the story...Slingbox and wireless internet charges suck, just come to my house and watch on the 65 inch tv for the mere cost of a pizza and a few Cokes!

Goodell To Take Twenty Percent Pay Cut

Roger Goodell is going to take a twenty percent pay cut and has laid off fifteen percent of the league staff. All other league executives are under a pay freeze.

It is nice to see a commish that will bite the bullet and do what is needed in hard times. I believe I heard that Bud Selig gave himself a raise...very nice you idiot! No wonder baseball is going down the drain.

$25,000 G for an Empty G Bottle

Got an extra $25,000 laying around??? You could own an empty Gatorade bottle that Tiger Woods has placed his hot lips on.

The bottle is for sale on Ebay and could be yours if you are willing to pay the price. The bottle was supposedly used during the 2007 PGA Championship. The auction description reads, "Was this drink enough to sustain him before he teed off? Did it provide the necessary ingredients to allow him to focus and the power needed for this hole?"

I don't know about all that but what about swabbing his DNA off there and somehow injecting it into my buttocks so I become a super human golfer. That has to be worth close to $25,000 right???

Colts To Release Harrison

Breaking news on ESPN, the Indianapolis Colts will release Marvin Harrison.

Oscar Awards Competition Last Night

Every year for the last 10 years my mom and I have an Oscar competition. We pick 11 categories and the winner gets bragging rights for the rest of the year. We start watching at 5pm when everyone walks down the red carpet and finish it no matter what time.

This years awards were kind of boring. I liked the stage setup, it was very glamourous. Hugh Jackman would have been a better host if he were naked the whole time. And who knew he could sing? He actually sang while Beyonce lip-synced. What is wrong with her????

I thought Amy Adams was best dressed and Beyonce was worst dressed female. I loved Amy's red dress with her hair and that necklace set it off. My 2nd favorite for best dressed is Penelope Cruz. It was a vintage dress that was 65 years old.

Worst dressed goes to Mickey Rourke. Looks like he got his outfit from Pimps R

So it was a good time...good food...and the best news of all...after a 4 year drought of being slaughtered in the picking contest by my mother I won! I got 10 out of 11 correct! Woooooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooo!

UFC 95 and Running the 40

Jimmy came over to watch UFC 95 with me last night and it did not start until 8pm. He got in around 7pm so we were talking about the combine and I showed him where I had Tivo'ed it. Yesterday was o-linemen, kickers and tight ends. He asked what would an o-lineman run in a 40 yard dash and I had not seen it yet so I wasn't sure. We started watching some of these guys and were laughing so hard. Most ran between a 5.10-5.75. But the ones that made us really laugh were the ones that would wear neon colored shoes. It just made them look so funny. So we started wondering what we would run. I told him let's go see. We went out front on the street with a yard stick and driveway chalk my niece had left here. Jimmy's watch had a stop watch on it. We were set!

I was to go first. I did not want to get in one of those dumb stances like they do so I lined up similar to a wide receiver at the line of scrimmage. He yelled out from the finish line, "GO!" I remember running about 3 strides and ending up face down looking at some gravel. I am pretty sure some wild animal had to have shot out from the tall grass and tripped me. I can hear Jimmy screaming wildly, "Call 911! Help!" So I quickly sat up so I would not have to pay the million dollars for an ambulance ride and said, "Hey, I'm ok...really." I have pieces of gravel stuck in various places, my right knee is killing me and I cannot help but think maybe if I had worn neon shoes this would not have happened.

I limped down to the finish line so Jimmy could run his 40. He got down in the fancy stance and managed to finish the race without falling on his face. Jimmy's time??? A speedy 5.0, almost an O-lineman time. He immediately wanted a do-over. I told him at least he was able to finish. Jimmy only weighs 180 lbs soaking wet. His diet consists of Cokes, pizza and Cool Ranch Doritos. So we immediately decided maybe we should not be making fun of these o-linemen running the 40. We went in to watch the fights...

I really wasn't expecting much...the card was not that great. But there were some really cool knockouts and a few really good fights. Probably the fight that got both of us up and yelling was the Nate Marquardt vs Wilson Gouveia fight. Marquardt hit Gouveia with 3 strikes that had him reeling and us screaming. He put a hole in the dude's eyelid that looked really nasty.

We were disappointed that Josh Koscheck lost. We had thought the Diego Sanchez vs Joe Stevenson fight would be a little closer. Diego is a beast. Like for real, he was foaming at the mouth while entering the octagon. Freaky.

A night of good times as usual when Jimmy comes over. However, I am very sore from my 40 yard dash attempt. I have taken 39 Advil thus far today. When I feel a little better I am going out to buy some neon colored shoes and give this another go...

Michael Crabtree Needs Surgery

Breaking news on ESPN: Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree has a stress fracture in his foot and will have to have surgery. Looks like he will be out 8-10 weeks.

I wonder what this will do to his chances in the draft...

In Loving Memory

It was 4 years ago today that my grandfather passed away unexpectedly. He was more like a father to me than my own father so it was the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. He had a massive heart attack at age 75.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him. He taught me all the important things in life, how to golf, how to gamble and that you must work hard because nothing is just handed to you.

He was my best friend.

I miss you dude!

Fantasy Baseball Anyone???

My fellow blog readers, it is almost time for fantasy baseball season. Baseball season gets my juices flowing...and A-Rods juice flowing. I will set up a league and if you are interested in joining, email me at ( No entry fee, because it would be too hard to collect the money. We can just play for bragging rights. Oh and the last place team...we all get to pick a name for your team if we play again next year. Sound fun???? Need plenty of trash talkers...

p.s. TBone, you are done my friend. I will finally beat you at something!

Is This For Real???

Hi, um, is this what they all look like under that jumpsuit???? Do they ever get so hot in the car they take the jumpsuit off???? Just wondering.

I now love Nascar! Sorry Kasey Kahne I am watching from Carl Edwards' car now!

Mail Time!

I love coming home to mail suprises. I popped open my box tonight and look what was in there. A personalized (kind of hard to see but it says, "To Chanin") 8x10 from Joe Theismann. My collection is starting to get out of hand, I am going broke buying 8x10 frames!

Good to know Joe is a cool guy.

Read This or Else...

I don't normally plug a blog other than in my blog scroll but you have to read this one. I have been cracking up all day. Read it or I will send Brock Lesnar to your house to have his way with you.

A-Fraud Gets Juiced On Energy Booster

Alex Rodriguez had his mega press conference today and told everyone his cousin gave him an injection of something that would give him an energy boost. "We consulted no one. It was pretty evident that we didn't know what we were doing," Rodriguez said.

Way to blame it on your cousin. I have no idea who he hired to spin this story for him but they are goooooooooooood. Mr. Innocent A-Rod looking for some sympathy but he gets none from me.

Deuce McAllister A Saint No More

Deuce McAllister has been cut by the New Orleans Saints.

This has been a long time coming. The guy is injured quite frequently and with Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas and Aaron Stecker they don't really need him anymore. This move will save some money for them under the salary cap.

Directv Offers Hot Pass For Free In 2009

I was going to watch the race yesterday because of Keith Urban but then heard that Directv is giving away Hot Pass this year. If you have a chance sometime, check this out. They are giving you access to inside 4 driver's cars every week. This past weekend it was Kasey Kahne, Dale Jr, Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson. I watched most of the race from Carl Edwards' car. In one corner of your screen you have the Fox broadcast of the race and in the other you have the driver's view from his car. You can also hear the communication between the race team and the driver. In HD it is a really cool way to watch a race.

If I have not said it lately, I would like to say it again...I love Directv!

The One And Only Reason To Watch Nascar Tomorrow

I am not a fan of Nascar. It bores me. I have tried on many occasions to watch, to try to like it so I can get through football off-season. No can do. I even played Fantasy Nascar last year, thinking I would enjoy it more if I had something vested in it. Nope. Didn't help.

But tomorrow will be different. I will watch it or at least the first twenty or so laps because the folks running Nascar were brilliant enough to bring in the hottest man on the planet to perform during the pre-race festivities. Keith Urban will be performing 3 songs tomorrow and I cannot wait. To watch this man move around with his guitar just does something to me.

I didn't become a Keith freak until last year. I had the opportunity to go backstage and meet him before one of his shows. It was very intimate, only 7 others, myself and Keith. He is the nicest man, has a great sense of humor and I could listen to that accent all day, night and for an eternity. I came out of that meet and greet like a giggling idiot. I went straight to the merch table and bought $200 worth of crap. Who knew Keith Urban underwear would be so comfy??

So tomorrow, think of me. I will be wearing my Keith underwear, t-shirt, hat, bandana and flip flops.

Jeff Reed Has Bathroom Issues

What is wrong with Jeff Reed? Is this what happens to a kicker with 2 Super Bowl rings???

Jeff freaked out at a Sheetz convenience store because their bathroom had run out of paper towels. He has been cited with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

This dude is a jerk. He broke their towel dispenser and cursed at an employee. No class at all. I wonder if his days with the Steelers are becoming numbered...

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone

I really hate this holiday. I think it is dumb. I hate getting flowers (big waste of money) and lingerie is really a gift that dude's get themselves right? I mean let's be honest. You can have dinner at an expensive restaurant, but why blow money on something you are just going to poop out later??

This year why not focus on showing that special loved one just how you feel about them. A little arsenic sprinkled in their Cheerios might do the trick.

You might think I am bitter about the holiday but I am not. I just think it is a waste of time and money. More importantly, I am not a person that believes in fairy tale love stories. I think that is a bunch of crap. I think if you can find someone, that you can halfway tolerate, that you have fun with at least 75% of the time then you are set. The most important things in a relationship are laughter and trust. If you have those two things you will last for a long long long time.

Enjoy the day lovebirds!

NCAA Football Turned Into Madden

Tbone and I could not hook up for some reason with the NCAA Football game. I was deeply disappointed. So we found a game that we both have and it was Madden 08. I am not a big fan of Madden. I have always and will always suck at it.

First play of the game I picked off Peyton Manning (Tbone chose to play as the Colts) and ran it back for a TD. I was stunned. Maybe I was actually good at this game and didn't know it??? Or maybe he is the worst Madden player ever. I quickly found out it was beginner's luck.

For the next 3 quarters he whipped the shit out of me. I think I might have completed 2 passes, one of which went for a long TD to Hines Ward (of course I played with the Steelers). Final score: Colts 42 Steelers 14. As I was exiting the game my internet died or something because I wanted to send a "good game jackass" message to him. Oh well, let him think I am a sore loser and maybe he will let me win next time. NOT!

Steroids Make Your Butt Big

Breaking news on ESPN says that the government has witnesses that say they have seen Barry Bonds use steroids.

I don't think they really need witnesses, the proof is in the size of his head and buttocks.

Another baseball player down the tubes.

The Battle Is Tonight

Tbone has challenged me to a game of online NCAA Football 09. Or maybe I challenged him. I can't really remember. But all I can say is he is going down. The final score will be posted here on my blog. I don't think he is going to like getting spanked by a girl but who knows???

*Um, look...don't tell Tbone but I have never played defense or any other position in this game other than QB. So I imagine he might be the victor tonight. I think I will go practice for awhile. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! DON'T TELL HIM!*

10 Things You Might Not Know About Me and Might Not Want to Know

Can you tell it is a slow sports night?????

1. I play the drums.

2. I won a trip for 2 to Vegas once in a football game picking contest.

3. My first concert was Air Supply. My mom made me go! Give me a break!

4. I played on my high school girls golf team, our number 1 player I might add.

5. I have a degree in Marketing that I have never really used. My family is so proud!

6. I was born breach. Explains even more about me than you ever wanted to know.

7. I am scared of dying.

8. Once I was told that I was a gambling addict (football games). I lost my bookie's number immediately.

9. I miss my grandfather very much. He was my best friend.

10. I feel like I was put on this earth to do something great. I just have not figured out what it is yet and it drives me crazy.

Baseball Has Almost Lost Me

When I was a kid growing up the only thing I wanted to do was play baseball. Yep, I was a tomboy...surprise surprise.

An evening of fun at my house was my dad taking me out in the backyard and throwing a hardball at my head as hard as he could and telling me," You will either learn to catch or get a bloody nose." I never missed. Well, except for once because it was getting dark and I could hardly see the ball. I caught one in the forehead which really explains why I am sometimes a little dense.

I played t-ball. My 1st year I was a pitcher which basically consisted of shagging ground balls and throwing people out at first. The next season I became shortstop. I loved baseball. It was what I wanted to do from the moment I woke up in the morning until I went to bed at night. I wanted to be the female version of George Brett. I just thought he was the greatest baseball player ever. He was my hero and a great one he was.

Once I got a little older it was made clear that I should be playing softball with all the girls but I thought softball was lame. I wanted no part of it. So that pretty much ended my baseball career. I still loved the game though.

After the past week in baseball, I am not sure how much longer I can love it. I am deeply disappointed with the liars and cheaters in baseball. This game is a thing of beauty and they are destroying it.

I don't know, maybe this is our fault...the fans. We spend our money on jerseys and tickets and MLB packages and we play fantasy baseball. Maybe we have created so much pressure on the players they feel they must cheat in order to keep us happy. Or maybe they just cheat because with being a great baseball player comes great rewards. A little padding of their pocketbook.

I don't have any answers for the problem but neither does Bud Selig and he is making $18 million a year. So Bud, I beg of you...if you don't know how to fix this, then hire someone who does. I desperately want my game back.

UFC Undisputed 2009 Coming Soon

Ok, I am pumped about this video game. I love UFC fighting and even more than that I will love choking someone out. The game will be released on June 2nd and I am counting down the days. I might even go pre-order it like a real nerd. I have even already decided who my first fight will be against. I will be my boy Forrest Griffin and I want a re-match against that punk Rashad Evans. He is gonna get an ass whoopin. When I am finished with him, he will know the true meaning of "ground and pound." I will challenge anyone to match up against me online (yes, even you Tbone) cause I am bringin' it!

Ah, ok, I need to go take a nice long bubble bath now and do my nails.

From C-Rod to A-Roid

Dear Alex,
Remember this photo??? Yea, I am hot. And you? You are a lying sack of shit and the American public just got a dose of it. I am so glad they finally got to see your true colors. Now maybe everyone will believe that you really were putting your dipstick in Madonna's oily hot pocket. I hope you caught something other than Kabbalah fever.

I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am that I got out before the shit hit the fan. I don't have to listen to your sniveling, "Oh poor me, I am only the highest paid baseball player in the league, people put too much pressure on me..." You need to grow a pair. What kind of role model are you for our daughter???

I have moved on. I am so over you. That's right, I know it hurts. But you did this to yourself. If you had not run off with the "Material Girl"we would still be together. But sadly, now I must go mount Derek Jeter.

Your ex-wife,
Cynthia (formerly Rodriguez, soon to be Jeter)

Roethlisberger Played With Broken Ribs

Just when I think I am getting over him, he goes and does something totally awesome like win a Super Bowl with broken ribs.

It was reported today by Peter King that Ben played the Super Bowl with 2 broken ribs. "Luckily, in the game, I didn't take any big hits to make 'em hurt," Roethlisberger told "But I knew all along there was something wrong. There wouldn't have been anything that could have been done about fractured ribs anyway. It was just suck it up and play."

Why can't I find a man like this???? It seems every man I have been involved with has had some retarded injury that kept them out of work for days. I had a boyfriend once that missed 2 days of work because he was constipated. Hello??? Take a Correctol, blow it out and move on!

Ben, I love you. For real.

Alex Rodriguez Tested Positive For Steroids

ESPN News is going nuts this morning with reports from Sports Illustrated that A-Rod tested positive in 2003 for anabolic steroid use.

Is there anyone out there that has great stats that doesn't cheat???? What is going on with the world??

Friday, February 6, 2009


Here is a blast from the past. I wrote this in 2006 about Nascar. Amazing but I feel the same way about it today as I did then. With the Nascar season about to begin, I thought I would re-post it in case you missed it.

198 Days and Counting...

I live for NFL football. I realize to say I live for something like football is quite disturbing but it is the truth. Not counting today, there are 198 days until the Thursday night NFL Kickoff Special. On that day, I will come out of hibernation and begin to live again. Until that day, I am just not sure what to do with myself. Weekend before last I had the Pro Bowl to watch. Do I really enjoy the Pro Bowl?? No. Generally, they are pretty boring games but it represents the last heartbeat in my body before I completely flatline. I realized the day of the Pro Bowl that I have entirely too much free time on my hands now that I don't have football games to watch on Sundays. I began to panic, what will I do with myself?? Exercise? No way Jose! Clean the house?? Absolutely NOT! Scrapbook??? HELL NO!I needed a football substitute, a fix for my addiction. I tried to watch an arena football game. I would say arena football is like a frozen pizza compared to the real deep dish delivered pizza also known as the NFL. Frozen pizza will do in a pinch, but I would rather have the real deal than to eat a frozen pizza.

So this past Sunday I noticed there was a Nascar race on TV. Daytona 500...Superbowl of Nascar they called it. Ahhhhhhhhh here we have football substitute! I have been saved by Tony Stewart and friends! So I climbed into the recliner and got ready for the race, turned on the surround sound and got ready to witness my first Nascar race on my 65 inch big screen. Bon Jovi before the race...ok, this is not bad at all...just like they have artists perform before the Superbowl...I think I will like this! James Caan got them all to start their engines and off they went! In circles... for hours. I think I must have fallen asleep around lap 20. When I woke up they were on lap 100. My God, how long does this sport take to finish? Had I missed anything exciting? After watching for about 10 minutes I find that in fact I had missed nothing but more circles. Again I passed out. I woke up this time with 25 laps to go. Ok, I have to stay awake for the ending of this...I run to the kitchen and make a pot of coffee and dissolve a No Doze in it. Maybe...just maybe I can make it now. Hop back into the recliner and my jittery hand reaches for the surround sound remote control, if I can crank up the sound of the roaring engines maybe that will also prevent me from falling asleep. Not sure really what kept me awake for the end because it was the most uneventful victory I have ever witnessed. Jimmie Johnson won the race. Then he stood on his car and a mega-ton of confetti fell from the air and completely covered the car and Jimmie. Then other drivers accused Jimmie of cheating (the most exciting part of the entire event). That was it. It was over.

I don't get it. At all. Why is this sport so popular? When I wasn't sleeping, I was praying for wrecks or for a fan to run out in the middle of the track.God, help me make it 198 days. Between Nascar and the Olympics I will be well-rested for the beginning of the NFL season.

My Sports Bucket List

I was thinking about this today at work (because I rarely actually do any work at work) and thought this might be an interesting topic. Do you have a sports bucket list or a bucket list at all??? So I jotted down a few top 10 anyways. Please feel free to share your list with me too!

1. See the Steelers play at Heinz Field. I have seen them play in KC and Denver but never in Pittsburgh.

2. Catch a pass from Terry Bradshaw. Highly unlikely I know...but if dreams come true...this would be one of them. He was my idol growing up.

3. Watch a Cubs game at Wrigley.

4. Attend a Super Bowl. I don't even care who is playing in it, I would just like to be amongst the craziness.

5. Sit ringside for a UFC fight. I wouldn't even mind a little blood or spit coming my way...

6. Walk on the sidelines before an NFL game. Preferably a Steelers game so I can make goo-goo eyes at Ben but I would take any team really.

7. See a NHL game. I have seen plenty of minor league hockey games but never a pro game.

8. See a game at Lambeau. The place has such tradition...I just think it would be a blast.

9. Throw out a first pitch at a baseball game. A little league game would be fine. I'm not picky. But the kid had better be prepared...I am bringing the heat!

10. See a Vols football game in Knoxville and also a Lady Vols game in Knoxville.

Ok, I know I only said 10 but I have one more...I would like to do one of those stadium tours...hit them all you know. Every NFL stadium, every baseball stadium. That would be so awesome!

The Queen of Basketball Hits a Milestone

Pat Summitt got her 1000th win tonight against the Georgia Bulldogs. She is the first coach in NCAA history to accomplish this feat. She received a plaque from the SEC, a painting and bracelet from the school and the adoration of a packed house of Lady Vols fans. In Pat fashion, she gave credit to those around her and to all the student athletes that have passed through the program.

Now let's get back to work and get us another title Pat!

Crazy Lady Crazy Week

What a week! My team wins the Super Bowl and there is just so much controversy it is beginning to annoy me. Did Santonio have both feet in? Should he have received an excessive celebration penalty?? Blah blah blah. Get the hell over it people! They ruled it a catch. The celebration??? I never saw it. Neither did the officials. Game over, move on. Let's just celebrate that it was a hell of a game and the best team won...according to me.

Not much in the way of sports I feel like talking about right now so let's talk about my favorite subject...ME. Here are my 10 favorite things right now...

1. Yankee Candle Vanilla Lime- damn this smells good! Totally worth the money.

2. 5 gum-I love Cobalt and Flare. Longest lasting flavored gum and it tastes good too.

3. NCAA Football 2009 PS3-I play this constantly. I am a QB for the University of Tennessee. GO VOLS!

4. Crush Grape Soda-Grabbed a six pack as part of my Super Bowl binge. I cannot remember the last time I had grape soda...this is GOOD stuff.

5. Entertainment Magazine-if you want to be kept in the loop on tv, movies, music and books...this is the mag to subscribe to. I nearly piss myself with excitement every Saturday when I open the mailbox to get it.

6.Ben Roethlisberger- Yea, duh!
7. A couple of tv shows- One is called "The IT Crowd"...British show about an i.t. department for a corporation. Very very funny show. Seems like I am way into Britain right now...Gordon Ramsay show called "The F Word". Kind of a cooking variety show and much more up close and personal than his "Hell's Kitchen" show. I might have a slight crush on that mean bastard!

8. Blu-ray- There is no other way to watch a movie other than go to a theater but that sucks because it stinks and you have cells phones ringing and kids whining and people coughing...disaster...just buy a blu-ray player and fall in love like I have.

9., ok...please do not tell on me but I sometimes watch tv shows at work on my computer. Hulu has it all! If you missed an episode of something, you can usually find it there and watch it for FREE! I love free things. They also have movies.

10. Last but not least...I am loving on my new toy...and I mean LOVING...if only they had one of Big Ben...

Todd Haley Talking To Chiefs

Well how exciting is this??? The genius behind the Cardinals offense has received permission to speak to the Chiefs about the head coach position. I think that this would be great for the Chiefs, although I am a little worried because the Chiefs are not near as talented as the Cardinals. I am pretty sure I could be offensive coordinator for the Cardinals and do ok with a great QB like Kurt Warner and two wideouts as great as Boldin and Fitzgerald.

So this will be interesting to say the least if this happens.

NFL Season Is Over Now What?

This is how I feel. Yes I know my team just won the Super Bowl 2 days ago but it suddenly hit me, this is it! No more football until August (if you count pre-season). I am now in a deep depression. What the hell am I going to do for the next six months??? I hate Nascar. They cancelled Arena Football. Baseball season is not until April. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

So I am looking for suggestions on how to spend the next 3 months...what can I do to entertain myself (besides blogging)????

Can Anyone Sing Live Anymore???

Ok, I will be the first to admit when I saw Jennifer Hudson singing the National Anthem I got just a tad bit teary eyed after all that the poor woman has gone through. I cannot even fathom her pain. But then at the very end I noticed she was lip-synching. Then I heard today so was Faith Hill. I am pretty sure Bruce was live because I think I heard the poor camera man scream through his mike after the sliding crotch shot. HELLO BRUCE!

So, if Ben Roethlisberger is gonna throw a pass live in the flesh how about we find some folks that will sing a damn song live. If the game is played live, then everything else should be live. Or why not just save everyone the trouble and play the recording and not have the artist there???

Am I the only person bothered by this??? If you cannot sing live, then how the hell are you making any money??? It is one song! A difficult song at that but surely after a month of practicing just this song you should be able to nail it. Maybe it's just me...sometimes I can be a b-i-t-c-h.

Wait..One More Favorite Commercial

Ok, this one is only my favorite because it has my super duper girl crush in it...Gina Carano. OMG she is so darn hot for a girl...check her out right after Bruce Lee.

My Favorite Super Bowl Commercial

This made me really laugh. I swear I am the woman in her car screaming every morning when I pull up for work...

Super Bowl Merchandise Sucks

I know I was up really late last night and got up super early this morning but does this not look like a Seattle Seahawk hat????? Are my eyes deceiving me???? I would not buy one of these hats ever! Obviously I need to work as a hat designer next because these just flat out suck.

Why is it my luck that the year my team wins the whole she-bang the merch sucks???? It seems when everyone else wins I find myself thinking, "Oh what a cool hat." But not this year. Oh no.

Well maybe the Steelers will repeat and after enough complaints someone will design a decent hat.

Santonio Saves The Day

What a game! I burned more calories watching that game than after 3 hours of running on a treadmill. I could not sit down at all, I was pacing, jumping, screaming, freaking name it and I went through it.

First and foremost you have to give it up to those tough Arizona Cardinals. They did not back down and put up one hell of a fight.

Santonio is the MVP. That TD run by James Harrison was incredible and Ben was Ben...extending plays and making things happen. The guy just wins baby!

I am so pumped, I am not sure how I will be able to sleep tonight. Maybe I won't...maybe I will watch it on my Tivo over and over and over and over and over and over! Super Bowl Champs baby!

I LOVE James Harrison

That has to be the greatest defensive play ever! First I was worried he would not get in for the TD and then I was worried by the time he got in the clock would run out. I am pumped! What a way to end the 1st half!

GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Policeman Decides Fate of Steelers

Ok, I was rushing around this afternoon going to buy myself a few yummy snacks for the Super Bowl and I got pulled over by a cop. Great timing eh???

He walks up to the side of the car, asks to see my license and insurance. I give it to him and he asks if I know why I was stopped. I said, "I think I was going a little fast..." He says, " You were going 50 in a 35 mile an hour zone." Ooooops! Shit! I muttered I was sorry and he said, "I am going to go check your history and I will be right back." Ok, here is the exciting part. I got a ticket like 2 months ago for going 50 in a 35. So in my mind I am thinking you are dead meat. He is so going to give you a ticket. So in my mind I say to myself...If he gives me a ticket, then the Steelers are doomed...the ending to a shitty day. If he doesn't give me a ticket, the Steelers win it.

I hear his car door shut and he hands my license back. This is what he says, "Ma'am, I am not going to give you a ticket today but please slow down." I nearly pissed myself with excitement! The Steelers will win! The Steelers will win! "Thank you so much officer...thank you thank you!" He smiled and walked away. I have no idea why the man did not give me a ticket especially considering my checkered past. I didn't even flash my boobies! So I can only take this as a sign from God that my team will win today! I am so ready for the game now! Wooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo!

Papa John's Takes A Risk

Ok, it really isn't much of a risk but you just have to take a shot. Papa John's is offering to sell you a pizza for just 25 cents if the opening kickoff of the Super Bowl is run back for a touchdown. Just go to the link below, register and if it happens, you get a large, one topping pizza for just a quarter. Worth a shot right??? Go check it out...

Rod Woodson Named To Enter Hall of Fame

One of my all time favorite Steelers is going into the NFL Hall of Fame. Rod Woodson was elected along with Bruce Smith, Derrick Thomas, Ralph Wilson, Randall McDaniel and Bob Hayes.

This was Woodson's first year of eligibility.

Inductions will be held August 8th in Canton, Ohio.

I Have The Coolest Mom Ever

I woke up this morning, brushed my teeth and wrote my last blog. I went into the kitchen just now to find a little something to eat and apparently my mom has snuck into my house either last night or early this morning and left these balloons in the kitchen for me. How cool is this for a morning wake up???? I just had to share with everyone how cool she is.

Today Is The Day

Finally all the hype is over and it is almost game time. I am super pumped about the game, I think it will be a very close and exciting game.

The weekend has brought me lots of calls from friends and family wanting to come watch the big game with me. I turned down every single person which left them a little puzzled. So here it is plain and simple...I want to watch the game alone. I like to pay close attention to the things going on, I don't want to be distracted by a possible Cardinals fan in the mix rooting against my team. I don't want to hear, "Hey, where's the bathroom?" or "Are there anymore Doritos?" If it were any other team other than mine, then yes, the more the merrier but not for this game.

So I know I am the anti-social one today...what are your plans for watching the big game?? Any great snack recipes you would like to share?? Super Bowl traditions you might have? Let me hear from you...
