Super Bowl 2013 commemorates American warrior culture minus wounded vets

TV NATION- Can Americans no longer embarrass themselves? This year's pregame holiday extended to Super Bowl Eve with an un-ironic commemoration ceremony, an all-star gala tribute to football, acclaiming it a venerated touchstone of the American character, the public mob like drunken monks feasting the humanitarian contributions of the Spanish Inquisition. Football celebrates America's cultural blood lust, a surrogate for our preemptive senseless war making, whose shared cartoon violence is expunged of its real antisocial inhumanity. Probably owing to this season's pre pregame homophobia scandal, where collegiate casualty Manti Teo showed signs of early onset Mohammed Ali's disease, fans learned about the concealed football side effect of compounded concussions, akin to IED survivors' collateral brain damage. Next we'll probably hear that footballers' home lives spread PTSD. As football injuries become more difficult to hide from battle-weary audiences, fans will be calling for more Kevlar and then of course commensurate armor piercing anti-Kevlar. I already think football offensive lines look spectacularly under equipped without drones. Or would that position be pretended to play defense?

Super Duper Half Time Navy Flyover, half a million bux…

Yahoo! sports declared it "a good thing" for promoting "our nations military". And wonders why nobody complains about GM paying for a super bowl ad... Very close to the truth... you can almost see it.. just pull your head out and open your eyes... Sure GM got corporate welfare, a lot of corporate welfare from their MILITARY CONTRACTS! "Our" military? Since When? They've existed for my entire lifetime to be a conduit for Corporate Welfare to Pigs like Bush and Cheney. 22812

If “Security Firm” HBGary knows “high command” of Anonymous…

Why then weren't they contracted by the U.S. Dept of (in)Justice to find the sender of the email on the White House LAN, who gave Pooter Libby the information to help the BushTards punish Valerie Plame Wilson for not backing up their LIES about WMDs? Wouldn't the Capital Murders of 7000+ U.S. soldiers committed by the CheneyBush Kartel stir patriotic interest on the part of ANY of them? One of the Bush Lies was that they HAD initiated a thorough investigation into the Plame leak, but couldn't find anything. Yet Disney and other entertainment outlets can find not only the ORIGIN of a file transfer, but also the computer receiving the data, or so they claim on all of the billions of IP addresses on the Internet, but they can't find one person sending an email from a specific computer, at a specific time, from the White House which has a camera trained on every door, especially in a time of "heightened security"? On an extremely limited Local Area Network. 22725

Super Bowl ad winners: Tebow soft-sell PR campaign and screaming chickens

Hands-down the best Super Bowl commercial was the Tebow mother and son soft-sell, where the advance PR hullabaloo delivered the anti-abortion message, leaving the TV-spot, an advocacy theme flag-planting placed at a celebrated cost of three million dollars, to ice the cake. Only its detractors would find the final 30-second message anticlimactic. The "Tebow Ad" was a month long campaign. Count ABC and the NFL also big winners, whose commercial breaks were watched more closely because of the Tebow hoopla, especially lookouts anticipating a multiple Tebow spot. Sunday's ads might have been scrutinized more than the game itself. Second place goes to the Denny's Grand Slam screaming chicken spots, with another ad-world sophistication, piggybacking on the Tebow jitters with a spot that began with lighting a birthday cake, a Tebow feint, interrupted by the now-recurring alarmed chicken. 14484

Is there a sumo in your future?

I used to avert my imagination on the subject of Sumo Wrestling. Probably I still do, visualization wise. But the bigger than grotesque spectacle has suddenly fascinated me, as a historic predecessor of the wide world of sport of our future. 6452

God loses Super Bowl XVIII

(We should be able to express it here without causing offense--) Thank God Kurt Warner lost the Super Bowl, or we'd not be hearing the end of Warner's praises to his god for the victory. Odd-makers since before the statistics were kept have recorded that God has proved powerless against flood, famine, and every permutation of human misery. Now we can add the Pittsburgh Steelers to the formidable list.
