mechrist, great point. Entertainment, the hyper sports world and meaningless shee gets huge salary.

Many jobs that have content and meaning get much less. Go figure. But I have to think it has something to do with the vacuous brains of the audiences that support and promote entertainment. Not everyone of course. But if you buy People Mag and others perhaps a contribution of equal amount should be sent to people in real need.

Oh just a wild and crazy thought. Hope I didn't rock the boat. lynne

I was deeply offended by the blatant objectification and exploitation of the male model. I've been led to believe that women were much more more evolved than this! By comparison, the men quietly enjoying the SuperTopo boob thread were more respectful of the female form, and better behaved.

I didn't see the game as due to financial restraints I had to downgrade my Sky subscription to the basic package several months back

Reading about it though, was it pass interference by Jimmy Smith on Michael Crabtree?
WBraun

climber
Feb 4, 2013 - 01:48pm PT
To me it looked awful lot like a holding pass interference.

It was a close judgement call.

I think the ref was too far away to be able to make an honest call so it was let go.

It would most likely have lead to a 49er super bowl victory.

Then the Ravens would have been pissed about the call.

A huge fight would have then ensued.

The whole stadium would have left the stands to the field to battle it out.

Thousands would be dead today after the stampede.

They'd Blame it on Obama and civil and international WW III would have started.

The Govt. will have lost control and started Nuking the country.

Ray Ray will still be crying.

Patrick, take it from an olde defensive back, he gave as well as he got.
That was a good non-call. What wasn't reported at the time was the far more
egregious non-call on the other side against Walker - he got flipping tackled!
That said the Niners' play-calling in the Red Zone was atrocious. Also
totally unreported was the third down play that Kaepernick missed Crabtree
on at the goal line.* Not only should he never have thrown that ball, as
Crabtree was blanketed, but he missed a wide-open Walker right over the
middle. There wasn't a Raven within 5 yards of him. Those announcers sucked.

*That missed pass led to their field goal.

It was terrible play-calling there at the last. I would've run, run, run, and run some more. Ah well, next year again...

I had six people here in my little studio and we none of us drank. It was the soberest and most stunned bunch of Niners fans I've ever seen.

Did any one notice Williams #29 of the Ravens aggressively push that ref in the first half? Both teams got called for personal foul in the scuffle so the penalties cancelled each other. But I thought pushing a ref would have been a separate personal foul of its own, or a mandatory fine or something. It doesn't seem right to me that nothing was made of it.

I'm disillusioned. Think sometimes these games are predetermined as to win or loss.

Yeah, touching a referee is often a separate penalty and a player can be immediately ejected for it.

Used to watch a lot of sports on the tube, but gave up TV 5 years ago. Can't say I miss it. Filled the time watching others do what they what to do with what I've always wanted to do.

So now it's don't watch, lynnie, learn it, do it, live it.

But if I do watch it's near the end. In any sport that's when it happens.

Jim

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco - Mark Twain

And remember he worked on the Territorial Enterprise newspaper in Virginia City, during the winter.

And I am proud to say that this great writer is in my family tree (can't get him out. Called the fire department but he still won't come down).

Before hitting the Oregon Trail in 1843, the Sawyers lived in St Joseph, Missouri. Samuel Langhorne Clemens grew up in Hannibal, Missouri. When he wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (an autobiography for the most part), he borrowed his cousins' name (the St Joe Sawyers) for the character's surname.

What does this have to do with the Super Bowl? Nada.

So, having not seen the game, did the best team win? Or is that a subjective question?

PS I love soft shell crabs. Hard to find here in Dublin. Yo! Sushi does a soft shell crab tempura.

Also, growing up in the Diablo Valley, in the sun with cut-offs and sandals, then heading west to SF, one needed a sweater and jeans. I worked in SF and played football (soccer) there too. It can be cold.
