Super Bowl Misery

“My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.” – Giselle responding to a Giants fan Eli Manning taunt against her husband, Tom Brady (I’m with you Giselle), after the Super Bowl loss.

Losing hurts.  Losing in playoffs really hurts.  Losing in the Super Bowl, well that’s just not fun at all.

The Jose took his annual day off on the Super Bowl along with his side kick, Man Chew.  For those who are unaware of Man Chew, he also goes by the nickname Phar Lap and Larry Johnson.  Be sure not to feed him cheese and onion chips, otherwise he’ll cry.

The Super Bowl Menu:


Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Sauce

Pork Ribs with BBQ Sauce

The game itself was bit of haze.  But this is what I remember:

– Dropped catch by Wes Welker in the fourth quarter

– Dropped catch by Wes Welker in the fourth quarter

– Dropped catch by Wes Welker in the fourth quarter

– Dropped catch by Wes Welker in the fourth quarter

Enough on that (The Yellow Jose does not hate Wes Welker, he has been a superb player for the Patriots for a number of years and usually doesn’t drop passes).

It’s close to easter, which means…

Hawthorn Easter Egg

I was thinking the last the Patriots lost a Super Bowl, this occurred:


After the heartbreaking loss against Collingwood (why do they keep showing this game on Fox Sports?) and Jarryd Roughead’s unfortunate achilles snap last year, this 2012 team is as ready as I have ever seen them.  No injuries, solid pre-season, and Jarryd’s return (Get ready for a ginger explosion), cannot wait.

Bet of the Week:

This is not even a great bet, but I want to dedicate this one to Man Chew for dealing with a cranky Jose on Super Bowl day.  New Orleans to beat Indiana on the road at $6.75 (odds courtesy of

Why?  New Orleans has looked good on the road in the last three games, with some solid defensive efforts against the Knicks and Bucks.  Obviously, their offense is poor, but in the middle of a back to back to back games, they could cause an upset against a Pacers team who are also not that solid on offense.
