    No flopping in hockey. My main issue w soccer

    It is unwatchable. Their general metrosexuality doesn't help.

    Do they have hairstylists in the locker room? Or do they do each others' hair?

    Soccer....the only sport where the men are prettier than the women.

    Was supposed to see Bob Hope at Camp Eagle in December of 70 but they moved my deros up and I wasn't going to argue.

    A good deal on an 18 person skybox for the SB they're going for $375,000.

    A nose bleed seat for $3500. I guess I need to get a skybox.

    If you help with the fuel and parking at Hartsfield we’ll take the G5.

    Watch what you wanna watch, but I'll never understand football fans complaining about other sports being slow when the core of football involves interrupting the brief moments of action with long moments of waiting.

    Not to say that football isn't entertaining, but it's a bit hypocritical to call other sports too slow IMO.

    but if you tally up the time when the ball is actually in play, the action amounts to a mere 11 minutes.

    Really not excited this year. Still mad at the NFL for a certain reason, don't care for either team, never heard of the halftime band and from the previews of the commercials, never heard of or don't care for the "celebrities" on them. Gladys Knight is the only good thing.

    Well, I lied. I'll watch it just like I have seen everyone since the get go. I want the patsies to loose. If they don't I'll change the channel if they are winning near the end. Do not want to watch the celebration.

    The Fins beat the Pat's  4 out of 5 years at home and beat the Steelers at home to make the playoffs last year. What a Joke. Put Miami at Pitt or Pat's when it counts and no contest. Coaches and players let down yet again.

    They have a social justice commercial airing right before kickoff. None during the actual game.

    I don't have an issue with the message, but they should just stick to making flavored sugar water IMHO.

    "Coca-Cola reveals new Super Bowl ad promoting inclusion, diversity."

    “A Coke is a Coke” is set to air in the pregame spot, just ahead of the national anthem. It marks the brand’s 13th consecutive appearance in the Big Game. Last year Coca-Cola relayed a similar message of inclusion with its spot, “The Wonder of Us.”

    What else do you think the motivation could be?

    Other than to sell Coca Cola.... you don't think this guy cares who buys it...do you?
