But that's not what the article is really about, Bill. I don't think you'll agree with it, but it does offer a different perspective on the whole thing.

I agree that Sherman shouldn't be judged by a single comment made at the end of a playoff game. Interestingly, I didn't base my original comment on based on that interview; I hadn't seen it at that point. I did base it on his swatting Crabtree (before Crabtree hit him back), and on his choke. The comments after the game just add more evidence.

You're correct that I don't agree with much in that article (not a surprise, given that you're a master mind reader); in particular, I disagree that if Sherman were playing for "my" team, I'd have given him a pass. As I wrote: I was rooting for the Seahawks, and I'm glad that they won. In that sense, he was playing for my team, and he doesn't get a pass.

But I have to wonder about the FOX Sports reporter. Just minutes after the dramatic end of the game, after Sherman got slapped in the helmet by Crabtree and then gave him the "choke" sign, he jumps up into the stands and then back down on the field, pumped to the limit with adrenaline- and the reporter shoves a microphone in his face. Do you think maybe it might have been a good idea to wait a few minutes?

I mean, what did she expect?

If you think that she expected anything in particular, you're probably giving her too much credit. Reporters (especially sports reporters) often appear not to engage in anything remotely resembling thought before they start talking.

I've never been much of a boxing fan, so I can't say that I ever did. But I can imagine what Ali had to say, and, clearly, Cosell would have known as well.

You're spot on, but some gentlemen have played it, and well.

The only one whose behavior I would condemn was the Seattle "fan" who threw popcorn at the seriously injured 49er as he was being taken off the field. And Sherman was quick to condemn that as well, saying it wasn't representative of the 12th man and was disgraceful.

That was reprehensible, and, likely, criminal. I wouldn't shed a tear if that "fan" were slapped with a battery charge. And good for Sherman's condemnation of it.

At the very minimum that "fan" should be banned from attending any future Seahawks home games.

Hmmm

a Marijuana AND a Velveta Cheese Shortage!

Coincidence...or the munchies?

The Velveeta shortage is a HOAX! (Although most cheese lovers probably wish it was real.) But since Washington and Colorado marijuana laws don't apply in New Jersey, I don't think there will be a noticeable effect on the Super Bowl beyond the usual toking that took place in the stairwells at halftime in the old Giants Statium and now at MetLife.

(When I was a Giants season ticket holder I quickly discovered that it was easy to get high just by standing in the stairwells and breathing.)

A clean and incontestable blow-out win for Seattle. Unfortunately, it wasn't the great game I was expecting. The games against the 49ers and Saints were far more exciting.

After all the talk about Denver's number one offense, I've got to say that Seattle's offense clearly owned Denver's defense. I was surprised that Russell Wilson didn't get the MVP.

I think we were all looking for a better game. Things went bad for Denver from that first snap.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

As a Seattle fan, this was the best Superbowl ever. Having said that, I like close games when I don't care who wins, but I am glad that Seattle handled the Broncos so well. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a shutout, but you can't have everything.

Go Hawks!

As a Coloradan non-football fan the results were exactly as I would have wanted. The obnoxious local fan syndrome will be contained to the north for a while.

Malcolm Smith...linebacker winning the MVP? Honestly, he it was well-deserved and I was thinking that he was gonna win it even before that was announced.

But did you see his MVP postgame interview? 9/11 Truther...

He's probably taken too many hits to his helmet Smile

Besides. the award I suppose is given out for his athletic ability. Not his connection to reality.

Malcom Smith didn't make any comments about 9/11. Some random guy hopped up, grabbed the mike from him, and started ranting about 9/11.

I was just going by what the previous post implied. I didn't see the interview as I didn't watch the game.
