#1 "Super Bowl gets LOWEST viewership in almost 15 years"

#4 Read a deal that number includes a padding estimate of if the bars/restaurants were open at normal (full) capacity.

And how many like myself laughed their ass off the whole demonstration. Like I said yesterday, seriously, there was a point where the WNBA number of fans' noise was disrupting the offense. Hell the streaker got the response, "What, somebody glue one of those cut-outs onto an RC car?"

Or the Toyota quick-cut "wash your hands. wear a mas. social distance." was followed by quoting the "Its a small world" parody from Shrek, with a shuttup you make cars.

Just MST3K'd the whole showtune. What is this, a Kylie Minogue (video Can't Keep You Out Of My Mind) parody? Nah, this group is guess is called The Weekend. Ah, so they are all working for The Weekend. (eveyone dead-panning now) So they are selling you a new romance? Yes, they need a second chance.

#6 Not even Super Bowl Commercials can save the Super Bowl [movement].

Hmmm... just watched some of the 'top 10 superbowl commericals' and, well, they suck too...

#9 Haven't seen one in years. Don't give a rat turd the National Felons League. I'll start watching if they issue the teams weapons and last team to have a living member wins.

Don't really care about any pro sports and college is fast approaching the same level.

#10 Is that 96.4m that WATCHED or number of TV's displayed in public area with an estimated of viewers (restaurants, airports and etc..) being presented?

Because, when these MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR over paid Sports figures 1st started taking a knee to protest our great country as racially restraining... where they became $$Millionaires... while being so called "restrained".

I was surprised at 1st then figured it was just 4th rate QB and the Socialist Democrats stirring up Race for a contract renewal and the Elections as usual.

Then the Team owners and the Media joined them while both tend to hire, contract or use them to sell products (Restrained??) with ALL sides making $$$$$.

I said" F____ this S____ to Hell and quit watching each and every sport league as they started disrespecting the very citizens of this country that have bled, died for their Freedom, civil rights and spent well over $5 Trillion in 55 years trying to help. All at a cost of many many so called WHITE PRIVILEGED Lives.

BTW: In all honesty I could not have told you who beat who until I noticed it today in this article I am commenting on now. Base on the score alone I sure did not miss much.

#12 Crowds were CGI....

#13 For $100, you could have your image printed on a paper doll and placed in the seating. There were actually people, but between the camera angles and lack of humans moving it was neigh impossible to see them.

Not saying there couldn't have been some CGI going on, like when they reanimated King and Lombardi to sell shit, but romo and the tin man were bragging about the paper doll people.

Perhaps I should have been a bit easier on Jeepy Bruce yesterday. Apparently he did just make a new record last November and is a farmer.

(DUI, and grows enough produce on his $million+ estate to avoid 98% taxes)

#15 For some reason I've reminded of a joke I've heard as a kid (in old Sov U). A phys ed teacher is tasked with organizing a football (soccer) & an American football teams for his school. He takes the candidates to a forest and tells them to run. These who dodge between the trees, go for the soccer team.

#18 At risk of gulag, does it mean on the way back from trials the soccer players take the new road made by football team?

#19 I didn't at first either (and also laughed anyway...). But I think it has to do with in American Football players would attempt to tackle the trees... In soccer they don't restart the game every few seconds for a 'down'.

#25 Well 3 hours lets you put in a lot of $5M 30second commerical spots.

#28 When "supremacist" sports fans attack:
"Where's the representation we lack?"
"True, they don't 'look like you...'"
What's a racist to do?
Will the crackers turn out for trans Black?
