It’s Super Bowl Sunday. I imagine that you and I are less excited about this fact than much of America, but the nightmare is almost over. Just a dozen more hours of nauseating coverage of two teams you can’t stand. Be strong, Eagles fans, be strong.
Last night featured the first-ever NFL Honors award show, where Aaron Rodgers received the award for being the season’s MVP from Peyton Manning, even though that fact that he was voted MVP with 48 out of 50 votes was announced hours earlier.
Alec Baldwin hosted the inaugural program, and LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson were in attendance. It didn’t take long for the jokes about the Eagles and VY’s proclamation of a Dream Team to start. In fact, this is what Mr. Baldwin, who I normally quite like, had to say:
“It was a dream – like a dream where you show up at school naked, you forget to study for the test, and you lose four of your first five,” said Baldwin, who then called Jackson “DeSean Johnson” and asked if he and McCoy were “laughing. I’m not looking.”
So you know, DeSean did not look at all amused by Baldwin’s joke. Shady smiled.
NBC10′s John Clark had a chance to ask DeSean about his contract situation on the red carpet, and not surprisingly no light was shed where D-Jacc stands with the team. – CSNPhilly
Though imagining any outcome to SB46 is painful, the game must not end with any members of the New York Giants being able anywhere near the Lombardi trophy.
Obviously, the Giants web team is hoping for the exact opposite result and, in fact, seemed to be helping the team to visualize a win. They took it a little far, though, announcing for all the world to see that the Giants had won Super Bowl 46. On Saturday. Simmer down, Giants web and marketing team. There is still, like, a game that must be played. – ProFootballTalk
Another Super Bowl Sunday, another day that Andy Reid is doing exactly what we will do this evening: Siting on the coach on our duffs. Le sigh. – philly.com
