After the superbowl

Well the Superbowl is over, and Steelers have won another ring, second in the past 6 years I think.

Here are my thoughts on the game:

1. Commercials sucked. I can't remeber a single one of them. I do remember Danika Patrik trying to get naked for GoDaddy.com
2. Arizona's offense played better than Pittsburgh, IMHO.
3. Arizona's defense made some great stops in the red zone. Unfortunately it got clogged by fouls resulting in some bad bad yeard loss.
4. Second half was way more exciting than the first. In the end I was sitting on the edge of the couch, pulling what hair I have left.
5. Officiating was not very good. But it's not for me to judge.
5a. Roughing the passer call was bogus, Big Ben was out of the pocket.
5b. Roughing the kicker call was bogus, there was absolutely nothing the defensive player could have done to avoid collision.
6. Larry Fitzgerald is AWESOME!

I ate too much pizza complimented by Miller Lite and Buffalo Wild Wings(you can never have enough wings)

And that folks is a wrap for today.

5b. You mean "roughing the holder"? The guy who is not moving and has specific duties that make him entirely defenseless. What do you mean, you cannot avoid a collision with something that is not moving?

Yeah, the holder I think, they called it "unnecessary roughness". But the defender was falling down already. He was pushed from behind, the refs didn't see.

Many strange calls that game.
