Super Bowl

  • The now legendary Taiwanese animators are a staple of our Buzz feed, and their latest is no exception. This one’s making the rounds pretty quickly this morning, which I’m assuming is because of the Big Ben clock tower genitalia, or perhaps Rex Ryan choosing feet over the Super Bowl…
  • It seems all but certain now that Steelers centre Maurkice Pouncey won’t play Sunday. But this is the Super Bowl, a game accompanied by secrecy that rivals the Pentagon, and nothing is official yet regarding Pouncey. The secrecy could end soon, because head coach Mike Tomlin has said that if Pouncey doesn’t practice today, he won’t be suiting up.
  • Cowboys Stadium–dubbed “Jerryworld”–cost $1.2 billion, and comes complete with nearly every amenity the mind can imagine, including cheerleaders dancing pretty much wherever you’d like them to dance. But for all of its lavishness, Jerry Jones’ grand creation is missing one key ingredient: hot water in the Cowboys locker room, the same one the Packers are borrowing for the week.
  • Even if he leads the Steelers to victory this weekend, Kurt Warner doesn’t think that we should start designing Ben Roethlisberger’s Hall of Fame bust quite yet.
  • Often casual fans (i.e. wives and girlfriends) think of odd, abstract questions when they’re making an honest attempt to become engaged in the usual Sunday afternoon insanity.

Steelers lineman Chris Kemoeatu takes a rather unconventional approach

    Not the Super Bowl

  • The NFL and NFLPA are headed for a nasty divorce in about a month, only this kind of divorce is a little perplexing. It involves the two groups at the core of the richest business in North American professional sports essentially arguing about who gets to keep the Ferrari and who gets the Lamborghini once all the divorce papers are signed. Judging by the comments from the NFLPA’s executive director DeMaurice Smith on Thursday, it seems there’s little common ground between the two rich spouses.
  • Jay Gruden has started his tenure as the newest offensive coordinator in Cincinnati the way every good coordinator should: by publicly coddling his star quarterback who’s seeking a trade.
  • For the second straight year the Raiders will likely use a franchise tag to retain the services of defensive tackle Richard Seymour.
  • Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and offensive linemen Jamaal Jackson and Todd Herremans made an appearance on The View yesterday to support a Pennsylvania high school student named Nathan Khoury who was the victim of a brutal bullying incident. The student received DeSean’s jersey, who then told the teen that the Eagles “have his back.”
