I want to see Brady get that sixth ring.

Kayelle, you never have enough rings.
I do have to admit I have a very strong bias, as I don't want to see "Sixburgh" tied in Super Bowls won. Then again, I am not a Dolphins fan, but I don't want any team, unless it is the Steelers, have a "perfect season" like they did. That dolphins team was pretty awesome, I have to admit.

LOL!

I knew every answer, including the "Purple People Eaters." They were an awesome defense. Fran Tarkenton and the Purple People Eaters faced Terry Bradshaw and the "Steel Curtain" in Super Bowl IX. What a game! Oh, the Steelers won.

That Dolphins team had one of the easiest schedules in history. Their opponents had an aggregate win/loss% of less than 50%.

DH and I were watching it while making dinner. He knew every answer, too. He was kind of rolling his eyes by the end. It was pretty funny

The Pats came close to a perfect season in 2007, but the Giants ended that in the SB. Of course the most memorable thing about that near perfect season was that the Pats cheated, and Coach Belichick was fined a half-million bucks, and the Pats lost their first round draft pick for 2008.

Hey folks, you can watch SB commercials on AdBlitz, part of YouTube, without having to watch the game. It doesn't look like all the ads will be there, but I just watched the Jack-in-the-Box ad with Martha Stewart, and it was funny, as I expected it to be.

The Pats have cheated many, many times. I've heard a few of our on air guys, ex-professional football players, say while it's no secret that most teams take any advantage they can - including cheating, Bill Bellicheat and Shady Brady have taken it to another level. so bad that they keep getting caught.


One new story I heard was that they called in a fire alarm to the hotel of their opponent near the stadium in Foxboro, then send in fake housekeeping people to copy playbooks, and anything they could find.

Well, it doesn't matter this year. The Eagles are the champs!
