    I thought Romo did a good job explaining how when Brady wasn't necessarily hit or brushed, how the pressure was affecting his throwing form.

    I don't like Romo as a commentator, he talks way too much for my liking. But I watched his pre game show where he was yukking it up with former coaches and players and I thought he was very likable. Didn't take himself too seriously. He was discussing one of the first times he took a snap for the Cowboys and lost possession, TWICE. He was pretty funny about it. Seems like a nice fella but his commentary is too much for me.

    I liked the time in the game where that one team punted. That was really exciting.

    Some hilarious headlines from The Onion about the Superbowl:

    "Superbowl Halftime Show Marred by Functioning Sound System"

    "Bill Belichick's Challenge Flag Turns Into a Swarm of Snakes When It Hits the Ground."

    "Following Sixth Superbowl Victory, Giant Demonic Hand Bursts Out Of Ground, Drags Bill Belichick Back To Hell"

    "Roger Goodell Dumps Box with Broken Pieces of Lombardi Trophy in Front of Tom Brady." (I assume that is in reference to the cell phone Brady coincidentally destroyed the day before his scheduled meeting with Wells during the deflate-gate investigation).

    Pretty good game even if I didn't like the outcome. Just glad I wasn't eating when the Mint Mobile commercial with "Chunky Style Milk" came on. Made me want to blow chunks.

    So the Chiefs ripped themselves off???

    The OT rules are fine as is. The very same day, in the early game, that game too went to OT. The Saints won the toss, but then lost.

    And as so many assholes felt fond of saying that "good teams overcome bad calls" after The Tuck Rule, I say the same thing to the Saints and their fans. Tough titties.

    What if the Saints run the ball on 1st down instead of throwing it when they were inside the Rams 20 on that last drive? That stopped the clock which ended up giving the Rams just enough time to come back and score to send it into OT. What if the Saints D stops the Rams offense on the Rams final drive? What if Drew Brees doesn't throw the ball up for grabs in OT? How about the Saints don't blow a 13-0 lead? How about if the Saints get touchdowns instead of field goals on those early turnovers?

    There were multiple times the Saints could've put the game away, but failed to do so.

    Fuck 'em.
    One way I would tweak the OT rules that would actually have zero effect on the way overtime is played is this: Instead of flipping the coin at the end of regulation to see who gets the ball first, flip the coin at the beginning of regulation instead. That way if a team is behind late in the 4th quarter and they're facing a "go for the tie or the win" situation, a lot of teams who know they're not getting the ball first in overtime would more likely opt for the win. After all, if you're going to leave such a critical decision to a coin flip, both teams should know about it before the game even starts.
