My final Super Bowl thoughts are as follows...
The Prince halftime show was the most overrated performance in the history of performances. The gushing over this performance that has followed is not in direct proportion to how good it was. It was fine, it was hardly great. An honest analyseez of the performance is that he sang a ton of covers (including a lame Proud Mary, butchering All Along the Watchtower and Best of You by Foo Fighters), a song that is so authentically 80's (Let's Go Crazy), and then Purple Rain was great (because it was raining). Not to mention, a sheer doo-rag that is tied in the front crosses the line from rockin to fruity. Totally ridiculous and unacceptable apparel. Even for Prince.
Grossman lost the game for the Bears. 22-17, 12 min, he throws a pick-6 to a guy I still have never heard of (Kelvin Hayden). There is a premium now in the NFL on QB's that will not get you beat, and he got them beat.
Manning is now in the conversation of greatest ever. That is what a ring does.
The commercials were awful. 2.7 million for those?
Mash is the most overrated TV show of all-time. It's not funny. I will not debate this. It does not hold up.
Cirque de Soliel (or whatever, I tried) is horrid. I have come to the conclusion that it can only serve as a deal closer. That is the only reason ever to endure that bologna.
On to Pau...
So there has been stuff going on for two years that you do not want to talk about? Then shut up. Don't even bring up the behind the scenes crap to support your feelings if you are not willing to tell us. He is trying to flip the script on the Grizzlies and it will not work. This mealy-mouthed, veiled attempt to explain his feelings was laughable at best.
I am secretly wishing the Grizzlies get the second pick and they get Durant. He will be infinitely more fun to watch for the next 10 years than Oden will be. Perimeter players are more fun by nature, and he is a bonafide superstar.
