Super Bowl XLV
Before Super Bowl XLV, we wrote about Green Bay Packers fan Daniel Smith, who ponied up Stubhub prices for Super Bowl tickets for himself, his children and their significant others only to find out the NFL wouldn’t let his daughter bring her infant son into the game without a ticket.
You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?
It all gets shipped to some third-world country.
While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Jordy Nelson will grace the cover of the new issue of Sports Illustrated. That’s what happens when you win the Super Bowl.
As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the north and south sides in green and gold and the east […]
It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated. In my case, a little too long. Yesterday’s hangover was brutal. It was also the best hangover I’ve ever had. Hell, I might […]
In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame another spate of injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home. It was an amazing game from the start. The Packers dominated the first half, scoring two […]
It’s come to my attention the Black Eyed Peas will be performing during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show, which makes me throw up in my mouth a little. If there were ever a bigger group of sellouts, I’m not aware of them and I don’t use that term lightly. You see, I used to […]
Confidence instills confidence. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is supremely confident about this game and I suspect his team is too. After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice for our game plan, so we’re ready to go. The one thing you want to […]
Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted he had a 75 percent chance of playing Sunday. He didn’t practice on Friday, which […]
Actually, I take that back. Calling this gay is an insult to my homosexual friends. This is something else entirely. It’s lame. It’s loserish. It’s a sign this guy is never getting laid for the rest of his life, unless he runs into a 300-pound hillbilly with five teeth from West Virginia. They like the […]
Here’s another video animation from those crazy bastards at Next Media Animation. This time, they’re apparently trying to describe the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and the Super Bowl to a nation that cares little about it. They’ve spiced things up by including a naked Ben Roethlisberger, who not only gets caged and Tasered, but […]
Does anyone else feel like the first-time Super Bowl jitters do not apply to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers? There’s all kinds of evidence to suggest the Super Bowl-experienced signal caller has an advantage over a guy making his first appearance in the game, but Rodgers has always been unflappable, whether it be dealing […]
In case you haven’t heard, the Green Bay Packers are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to trade a little info on our respective teams with Chris at Nice Pick, Cowher, one of the best Steelers blogs we’ve seen. And yes, I chose seven questions […]
Maybe it’s his stupid, fat face. Maybe it’s his plodding style of play. Maybe it’s because he’s a rapist. Whatever it is, no one like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That is, at least according to a poll set to be published in the Hollywood Reporter. The poll, conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, showed Roesthlisberger […]
I think this pretty much speaks for itself. The Green Bay Packers Super Bowl XLV sculpture was created by Tim Abraham and reader Ryan Huls stopped and grabbed a photo of it for us. It’s located on Starr Ave. in Eau Claire. As I learned from channel 13 in Eau Claire (who knew Eau Claire […]
Hey, they’ve been in the Super Bowl a few times in recent years, so maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t need to worry about the usual distractions. Maybe they have their own way of preparing. I’m sure if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t engaged, he’d be out boozing and trying to rape hook up with some local […]
We haven’t talked a lot about the Pittsburgh Steelers, particularly in a negative light. That’s because the Pittsburgh Steelers scare me. More than the Philadelphia Eagles, more than the Atlanta Falcons and certainly more than the Chicago Bears. Coming into the playoffs, I thought there were two teams who could give the Green Bay Packers […]
Jeremy Piven, of Entourage fame, doesn’t like anything about this year’s Super Bowl matchup. Piven was looking for a New York Jets-Chicago Bears game for, who knows why. Probably because he sucks. There honestly couldn’t have been a shittier Super Bowl matchup than that. Anyway, Piven voiced his displeasure over the Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers […]
One my idiot friends who’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fan alerted me to the controversy surrounding the newly-released Titletown Towel. Why is there controversy? Well, Steelers fans feel ripped off because, you know, THEY WAVE TOWELS AT THE GAME, GODDAMMIT! That’s right, Steelers fans wave towels at the games because they don’t know how to cheer […]
