That was a crazy second half. And the Puppy Bowl was pretty good, too.
Avatar 6:03pm dale:

love scott walkers version of this song, too.
Avatar 6:04pm Cecile:

hey, Bronwyn and Jim, if I call in on President's Day, will you talk ice skating with me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I've been waiting all day to tell you guys that I won the football pool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Studio B Ben:

Seahawks can't win the World Series... OR CAN THEY?
Avatar 6:04pm dale:

oh, i just got the joke - HAH! i think they threw the game. you CAN'T BE THAT STOOPID!
Avatar 6:05pm Cecile:

You gotta love the guy who got the pick. Great story. And even thought I hate Tom Brady, he was the man in the second half. Unbelievable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Kat in Chicago:

I missed the Puppy Bowl :(
Avatar 6:07pm Cecile:

they were extra cute and frisky this year. Even some super cute behind the scenes story.
Avatar 6:07pm dale:

write a poem about having the trots, jim
Avatar 6:07pm Cecile:

they were 4 down.
Avatar 6:08pm Cecile:

They shoulda run it.
  6:12pm Robert:

You don't waste time with a pass play. And when you're behind, don't waste time. I didn't even watch the game, but from highlights, I can still say that was dumb.
Avatar 6:13pm Danne D:

Yay Sportsytalk :)

Yeah - it's the 30 for 30 movie Big Shot.
Avatar 6:13pm glenn:

that's happened with a few n.h.l. teams.
Avatar 6:14pm Cecile:

Tom Clancy almost had the Vikings, but his funding fell through too.

I haven't gone to pro soccer since the MLS began, but I used to go before that.
Avatar 6:19pm Danne D:

Kearse was foiled.
Avatar 6:19pm Cecile:

well, see you later. have a great week everyone.
Avatar 6:19pm Danne D:

Red Ball should get new ownership that realizes the team is in NJ.

Hi/Bye Cecile :)
  6:20pm Robert:

It would still not equal the all-time great catch made by one of the scab players in or about 1986 -- the one where he caught the ball on the opponent's back.
Avatar 6:21pm Danne D:

Hull City News on transfer deadline day:
#hcafc have until midnight to conclude a deal for N'Doye if they've provided relevant paperwork to the PL.
  6:23pm Robert:

No, ties are ties, no sense going out of your way & distorting the game to break one.
  6:24pm Robert:

What's wrong with saying the opposing teams in a given game did equally well, and it was a draw? It'd be different if few games were won, but occasional ties don't bother me at all.
Avatar 6:24pm JakeGould:

Soccer in America is a nice idea, but it’s like the metric system: It makes so much sense that nobody would touch it.
Avatar 6:25pm JakeGould:

“What's wrong with saying the opposing teams in a given game did equally well, and it was a draw?” Nothing. but America in 2015 extremely aggro and hateful towards gray/neutrality. You win, you kill. You lose, you die. That is why I can’t stand sports nowadays.
  Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Ralphine:

Novak Djokovic got paid $3.1 million for winning the Australian Open. That'll buy a lot of donkey cheese.
  6:26pm Robert:

That's not gray, it's a definite tie! No ambiguity about a tie.
  6:28pm Robert:

The NFL screwed the pooch when they adopted regular season overtime, because ties help spread out the standings and PREVENT standings ties that need gimmicky breaking for playoff spots.
Avatar 6:28pm Danne D:

Other fan bases have taken out billboards in protest of ownership. Hell, Bengals fans protested Mike Brown for years.
Avatar 6:28pm Danne D:

  6:29pm Robert:

Not only that, but as the AFL found out, the 2-point conversion was used much more often to tie games than to untie them.
Avatar 6:30pm JakeGould:

Robert, maybe my analogy was off but the aggressive tone in America nowadays results in there being no humility. There is little sportsmanship in pro sports nowadays.
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

The problem with the NASL in the Cosmos days was it ultimately was a one-team league.
  6:34pm Robert:

Sure, Jim, but a few years earlier, the NY Generals (playing in Yankee Stadium) were widely ignored.
Avatar 6:34pm Danne D:

Most of the owners could not keep remote pace with the Cosmos spending. And fans in America don't like to go support a team that they feel never will have a chance.
Avatar 6:35pm Danne D:

I 100% disagree with Jim on this.

The new Cosmos think this is the way to go. It just would destroy the league all over again.
  6:36pm Robert:

Actually, Danne, I did go to a lot of Chi. Sting games during that time. If you couldn't keep up with the Cosmos, you could still compete for 2nd place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Carmichael:

Finally made it to the big show. To hell with those bastard cheating bastards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm asb:

Re co-ed soccer: it is NOT FUN to be the mandatory lady on the field (IME)
  6:39pm Ted:

Best soccer talk ever. Good interview
Avatar 6:39pm Danne D:

@Robert I know that Vancouver and Tampa Bay were decent. But really expanding quickly to 24 teams - recipe for disaster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Carmichael:

When the Raiders traded Jon Gruden, I burned all my Oakland stuff and bought Tampa Bay gear. So the fans do have some ability to give the owner the finger.
  6:42pm Robert:

Remember when the NHL expanded from 6 to 12 in 1 year?
Avatar 6:43pm JakeGould:

@asb: What’s wrong with being a token? *irony*
  6:45pm SeanG:

time to drop the suffix -gate for every dumb scandal--lazy journalism
Avatar 6:45pm JakeGould:

Avatar 6:46pm Danne D:

@Robert - MLS expansion was much broader, faster, and much more poorly thought out. Only 1 of those 6 teams failed. 1 other one moved because of a bad owner. The other 4 are still where they are today, 3 have won the Stanley Cup.
Avatar 6:46pm drewo:

% of population, or % of TV's turned on?
Avatar 6:46pm Danne D:

And none of them were in Tulsa.
Avatar 6:47pm Danne D:

nope I'm pro - gate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Carmichael:

Maybe the Super Bowl should be on BET, or Reelz.
Avatar 6:48pm Danne D:

Should be Nixon's legacy and shame forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Carmichael:

Most distorted/drunk caller.
Avatar 6:49pm JakeGould:

Danne, isn’t it amazing that Nixon is still a shorthand for corruption despite tons worse things happening since his impeachment?
  6:49pm Robert:

I didn't watch the Super Bowl, but I'm an unusual case in that I'm spoiled and/or burned out by coaching. I just don't enjoy WATCHING football enough now to be worth my while to turn on the TV.
Avatar 6:49pm JakeGould:

Caller should blow his nose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Carmichael:

What language is this guy speaking?
Avatar 6:50pm Danne D:

@JakeGould - Nixon was never impeached. And he set the gold standard. So many future scandals were the legacy of folks with their roots in that administration.

Anyway how about that Nationwide Commercial?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Carmichael:

I loved the Brady Bunch commercial with Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi.
Avatar 6:52pm dale:

this guy calls clay pigeon too. good heart, slightly broken mind or body
Avatar 6:52pm glenn:

i think he's had a stroke.
Avatar 6:53pm JakeGould:

Danne, corrected… He was not impeached… He almost was… Dodged that by resigning.
Avatar 6:53pm JakeGould:

Commercials are great. How would we know about things and stuffs without the commercials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Carmichael:

Bill Bellichick used to work at Sunglasses Hut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Carmichael:

Patriots deserve to be punched in the face, Jim. Because they're Patriots.
Avatar 6:58pm Danne D:

Proposed Game Show - Make a TV Ad more depressing than the Nationwide Ad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just spend two hours piling up my driveway snow into a single pile for my daughter to slide down. I think it's over seven feet high.
  6:59pm SeanG:

good song choice
