Super Bowl XLIII Open Thread

Sunday, February 01, 2009



WHAT: Super Bowl XLIII
WHO: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals
WHERE: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa Bay, Florida
WHEN: Kickoff 6:28pm (NBC)
SPREAD: Steelers -7, O/U 47
ANNOUNCERS: Al Michaels, John Madden, Andrea Kremer, Alex Flanagan, Peter King
AA's PICK: I've been back and forth on this one a bunch of times, but it boils down to quarterback play. With that said, there's no one hotter right now than Kurt Warner, and I just can't trust Roethlisberger against a surging defense. I'm going Cardinals for the win, but it would behoove you to just take the seven points.

Cardinals 28 - Steelers 23 (MVPs: Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald)

I'll be trying to throw videos up throughout the game if I can, but I'll definitely have up your highlights and quotes later on tonight. Enjoy the game.

I'm really dreading the Hudson national anthem tonight. She's going to over-do it and pull a Patti LaBelle on us, I have a feeling.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:07:00 PM  

@JFein, I am muting the anthem with Hudson.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:09:00 PM  

Yeah I'm in no mood to do a huge live blog, I just want to follow the game.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:09:00 PM  

@ JFein, what makes her different? We are probably the only country that turns a national anthem into a "I can sing it better than you" contest.


I may listen to it, because it would be nice to see her perform well after her personal tragedies.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:11:00 PM  

Kurt Warner will win.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:15:00 PM  

Told you

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:15:00 PM  

Holy crap, Brenda Warner looks like a woman.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:15:00 PM  

@ SSR: I'm in the same boat tonight as well. Often times during live blogs I use the commercials to go through the quotes and get updates on the NFL.com GameCenter if I fell behind. I'll be watching the game and chiming in here with my comments/thoughts/dumb announcer quotes.

Hudson tries to much to hit the really high note, and as much as it will hurt to listen, especially after the murder of several of her family members, she'll do too much and it'll end in disaster.

Just sing the damn song!

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:21:00 PM  

dammit why couldnt they get uh, that fat cute chick...from the NFC championship game.

Feb 1, 2009, 6:21:00 PM  

That was horrible!!!

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:21:00 PM  

Jennifer didn't do that bad of a job, but definitely not as good as Whitney Houston at SB XXV. I had it at 2:18.

Chris in Tampa said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:21:00 PM  

I forgot her name, but she is the ABSOLUTE best singer of the national anthem by far.

Feb 1, 2009, 6:22:00 PM  

and G.I joe looks mildly sick

Feb 1, 2009, 6:22:00 PM  

I loved G.I. Joe when I was a kid.

Andrea is pissed Brady is not in the game.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:29:00 PM  

jeez....SHAFT the kurt warner story already!

Feb 1, 2009, 6:29:00 PM  

Take another drink if they mention the story of Warner being a grocery store clerk.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:30:00 PM  

lets go then

Feb 1, 2009, 6:32:00 PM  

Good grief he was wide open.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:34:00 PM  

This is looking easy for the Steelers.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:36:00 PM  

Penetration.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:37:00 PM  

As soon as I say that, the Cards stuff Parker for a loss of 4. Go figure.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:37:00 PM  

I guess the Whisenhunt factor isn't that big of deal.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:37:00 PM  

Can Madden work the word "penetration" more times into one thought?

J said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:37:00 PM  

It wasn't a John Elway channeling, but damn that was an impressive run by Roethlisberger.

And Whisenhunt is wasting a timeout.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:39:00 PM  

Here's a guy who when he runs he goes faster. Here's a guy who when he eats a lot he takes a big dump.

You get some turducken if you know who said that.

funkdoctor29 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:39:00 PM  

Whisenhunt is going Norv with this challenge.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:39:00 PM  

Funny bud light commercial.


Oh look, a disputed big ben TD.....

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:40:00 PM  

The mention of Super Bowl XL has SSR and the whole city of Seattle crying in their coffee.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:40:00 PM  

Holy Crap! Whisenhunt got it right.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:42:00 PM  

Ooh, I was wrong. At first I thought that was a clear TD. But alas, what do I know.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:43:00 PM  

@ JFein, what did you have for the shortest field goal made?

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:43:00 PM  

And that decision by Tomlin alone will give Arizona the Super Bowl.

What a horrible decision.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:44:00 PM  

NUT SHOT!

Best commercial, thus far.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:45:00 PM  

@ 49er16: 33-yarder. Yeah, I'm wrong.

Although I was right when I said the Cards would win the coin toss.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:47:00 PM  

That fumble was a bad Omen for the Cards.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:49:00 PM  

Arizona just keeps blowing the handoff and never turning it over.


Hey a punt!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:50:00 PM  

Lawrence Timmons had himself buried into Anquan Boldin a bit too long for normal football player...

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:51:00 PM  

That Jack Black movie looks horrible.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:52:00 PM  

Conan made me laugh for the first time ever!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:53:00 PM  

The Steelers are beating the Cards at their own game.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:54:00 PM  

Who's performing at halftime tonight? You think that they would say something about it....

And right now the Cardinals defense is looking like they have "Happy To Be Here" Syndrome.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:54:00 PM  

Cromartie just made a great play.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:55:00 PM  

All right Fresno St. is being represented.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:56:00 PM  

Wow, generally when you have a guy 5-yards on the other side of the line of scrimmage, the refs call it on the defense.

"That's Ben Roethlisberger just being Superman." - John Madden

Or Eli Manning. One of the other.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:58:00 PM  

Bruce Arians and "good" is an oxymoron.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 6:59:00 PM  

The Steelers are keeping the ball out of Warner's hands.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:01:00 PM  

@49er16 6:52

Mel Brooks did history farce better with "History of the World Pt 1"

Feb 1, 2009, 7:01:00 PM  

Ah, Mr. Potato Head, classic.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:02:00 PM  

I guess Vin Diesel and Paul Walker can't find any other work.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:03:00 PM  

Did we really need to see that guy contract AIDS?

"For a wide receiver, he's the scrappiest guy there is. He loves the physical stuff." - John Madden

Okaaaaayy...

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:05:00 PM  

The Doritos commercial has been the best so far.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:07:00 PM  

@ JFein didn't you have Garry Russell for the first score?

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:08:00 PM  

Warner and the Cards need a long, time-consuming drive, if for no other reason than to give that defense some rest.

The first diet cola for men? So all other diet colas are targeted for women?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:10:00 PM  

@ 49er16: I had Fitzgerald.

Yeah, now you know why I don't like to gamble.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:12:00 PM  

Holy crap, maybe I won't be miserable tomorrow!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:13:00 PM  

The dating horses was a good commercial.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:13:00 PM  

Now the Steelers should come back and attack.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:22:00 PM  

That may have been one of the ugliest Super Bowl touchdowns I've ever seen. But alas, it's a Cardinal touchdown and SSR is throwing stuff at his TV, right?

Ugh, a G commercial.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:23:00 PM  

That Cars.com commercial was not a very good one, either.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:24:00 PM  

"He's so quick he got ball." - John Madden

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:27:00 PM  

How many times must Madden mention penetration?

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:30:00 PM  

The bottom of the Super Bowl logo blends in way too easily with the field. Just an all round bad logo this year.

And to think that last year they had one of the best.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:30:00 PM  

Do my eyes deceive me? Did Arizona actually stop the Steelers on 3rd down in Steeler territory?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:31:00 PM  

@ SSR: The same number of times he must mention Brett Favre.

And here come the Cards.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:32:00 PM  

Damn, I just realized how quick the first half has been. We kicked off an hour ago and now there's 3:37 remaining in the half.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:33:00 PM  

And Al just does the its a small world story NFL version with James and Warner winding up on same team

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:34:00 PM  

They have to get rid of the "sideline can call timeout" rule.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:34:00 PM  

Oh man, another E-Trade miracle baby...

JFein said...

"If you know Dick LeBeau, he's 71 going on 48." - John Madden
"And you know his mom. She's 95. That's some good genes." - Al Michaels

Both seem rather jealous...

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:37:00 PM  

"If you know Dick LeBeau, he's 71 going on 48" - Madden


WTF ?

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:38:00 PM  

I surrender, just kill off the Seattle franchises and leave me be.

Yeah I am going to be a wreck tomorrow.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:46:00 PM  

Cheer up, SSR, I was actually happy when the Giants won the Super Bowl.

Then again, they played a team that I actually hate more...

Nice visual there, Al.

Look at that big boy run!

Is Harrison alive? Good lord.

And SSR is absolutely giddy!

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:52:00 PM  

That's why Harrison is the Defensive player of the year.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:52:00 PM  

Oh my, they might want to take a look at that. Holy cow, this is nuts!

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:53:00 PM  

I LOVE YOU JAMES HARRISON!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:54:00 PM  

James Harrison runs like James Brown - Madden

I thought all James Brown did was dance? WTF?

naternet said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:55:00 PM  

Wow, an end to the half.

That may have just won the Steelers the Super Bowl...

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:56:00 PM  

Now I am going to be miserable. I don't want to see the Steelers pass the 49ers in all time Super Bowl wins.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:57:00 PM  

Why can't Alex Flanagan work the sidelines for every game?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 7:57:00 PM  

"You can tell it was a touchdown by the roar of the crowd." -Al Michaels

Actually, we could tell it was a TD when the ref told us the play was upheld

JAMES HARRISON!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:01:00 PM  

INTs at the end of the half are never good.

Feb 1, 2009, 8:04:00 PM  

Any chances of The Boss having a wardrobe malfunction?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:07:00 PM  

Is Clarence Clemons dressed like a priest ?

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:10:00 PM  

Maybe because I am from California, but I have never understood The Boss and why he is so popular.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:11:00 PM  

I wouldnt have minded if Faith Hill had a wardrobe malfunction

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:12:00 PM  

Don't worry 49er16. We don't expect Californians to understand much of anything. (Sorry, but you kind of walked into that one)

John said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:20:00 PM  

Ending the set with "Glory Days". Appropriate considering he's been coasting off the success of Born in the USA for 25 yrs.

Feb 1, 2009, 8:20:00 PM  

ok, the NBC lmao ad was even creepier the second time around.

J said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:23:00 PM  

Getting your picture taken with Terry McAulay is supposed to be a way to reward kids for playing 60?

"[James Harrison] runs through the entire state of Arizona to get that touchdown." - Al Michaels

Er, Al, I know you're trying to be punny funny and all, but we're in Tampa, as in, no where near the state of Arizona!

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:28:00 PM  

Does the Zebra get the credit for that tackle?

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:31:00 PM  

That's an incomplete pass.

If I were Arizona, I'd use this time to draw up a fake punt.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:37:00 PM  

The Steelers fans seem upset over that call. I thought it was a fairly obvious reversal.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:40:00 PM  

Oh, if anything that should have been intentional grounding on Big Ben. That's a huge break for the Steelers.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:48:00 PM  

I think a Steelers TD here is game over

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:53:00 PM  

Wow....Adrian Wilson just shot his team in the foot.

Game. Set. Match.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:54:00 PM  

"Meanwhile Mike Holmgren is sitting here having flashbacks to his last Super Bowl." - Al Michaels

And an interception there and Adrian Wilson would have been credited with the greatest boneheaded move in Super Bowl history.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:56:00 PM  

That was some Reid-esque playcalling there

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:57:00 PM  

Wow, that Cardinal defense is giving it everything they have. They're making mistakes but they're fighting and they have somehow, someway held the Steelers to yet another field goal and have kept this a 2-score game.

Now the question becomes will we see the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 8:58:00 PM  

That CareerBuilder.com ad was funny.

/Waits for PETA to sue over the punching of that "small animal."

Pittsburgh is being handed the title yet they don't want it.

TOUCHDOWNS NOW!

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:00:00 PM  

Cards are absolutely killing themselves w/ penalties on both sides of the ball.

J said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:09:00 PM  

Arizona doesn't want this game.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:09:00 PM  

This game is going by so quickly that many of the commercials probably won't play tonight.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:10:00 PM  

Man, I have no vested interest in this game, but there have been enough bad or questionable calls against the Cardinals that I feel like I have to root for them. Garbage.

Pave the Whales said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:10:00 PM  

Not that I'd watch that garbage, but the "celebrity" bar is really low these days

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:14:00 PM  

This game is over. Obama is once again laughing at McCain.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:15:00 PM  

Can't they just have Herschel alone in the Celebrity Apprentice? That way, Donald Trump can fire each personality he has.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:15:00 PM  

Wow! The Cardinals make a play and there is no flag.

Advice to Arizona: SCORE A TOUDCHDOWN NOW! (Otherwise the Steelers are the national champions)

Finally, the Polamalu ad!

And that, was, um, strange.

Wow! Ed McMahon must be hurting. He has to schill for Cash4Gold.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:18:00 PM  

The game is getting boring now.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:18:00 PM  

"Working with alacrity." - Al Michaels showing off his advanced vocabulary.

Any second now the Cards will make a mistake...

Feb 1, 2009, 9:20:00 PM  

Remember "alackrity", AA?

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:20:00 PM  

All right, a Cal grad makes a big play.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:21:00 PM  

Well, when youre in the same ad as MC Hammer, that cant be a good thing.

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:22:00 PM  

That's seemingly the first penalty on Pittsburgh tonight. Seem familiar at all, SSR? ;-)

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:22:00 PM  

It's nice to see Ken Whisenhunt channeling Andy Reid with that timeout call.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:23:00 PM  

Yeah, but the officiating hasn't sucked tonight.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:24:00 PM  

Why couldn't the Eagles do that to Hightower on that go ahead touchdown?!?

Touchdown Arizona!

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:26:00 PM  

This game has just got interesting. Once again I am wrong.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:26:00 PM  

Hell of a catch by Fitzgerald

Feb 1, 2009, 9:26:00 PM  

Misery.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:27:00 PM  

@ SSR you think this is bad. What about my SF Giants. They haven't won a Series since arriving in SF and the Diomondbacks win one in their fourth year.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:29:00 PM  

Steelers not playing Steeler defense and getting three points on six downs is lame....

jebworks said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:30:00 PM  

And here's the big time-consuming, potential Super Bowl winning drive for Big Ben and the Steelers.

UH OH! SACKED! 3rd and long. I'm getting into this one. And sorry SSR, I'm finding myself more and more rooting for the Cards.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:31:00 PM  

Hey, did you know Larry Fitz's dad is a sportswriter? I never knew that!

P.S.-Being from MN, I wondered why I had never read him, and it turns out, he writes for an all black newspaper, not the Tribune or the Pioneer Press. The media makes it seem like he writes for a big time news paper.

funkdoctor29 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:32:00 PM  

I give up.....

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:33:00 PM  

Well here's the drive for the Super Bowl.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:33:00 PM  

instead, the Cardinals suddenly play Steelers defense.
This ain't over by any means unless the Steeler defense starts showing up. I miss the passion!

jebworks said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:34:00 PM  

WTF was that?

That MacGruber/Pepsuber may have been the strangest commercial thus far.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:34:00 PM  

Who's going to vote for the MVP?

Feb 1, 2009, 9:34:00 PM  

Worst. MacGyver Parody. Ever.

Don't panic yet Steelers fans and SSR. This does not look like this drive will use the entire last 3:52.

Wow, this has quickly gone from what looked like a guaranteed TD drive to 3rd and 20.

How is that a huge penalty, Al. The ball moves back about 6 inches.

Does Big Ben get sacked for the safety?

Finally the Steelers defense showed up. Now, come on Big Ben, nail it!

Arizona still has two timeouts.

Dispicable...Harrison should be ejected.

WOW!!!!!

OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!!!!!!!

I predicted a 20-16 Steeler win. I'm scared. Hold me, Mommy.....

@SSR you should be happy. Remember the Steelers stole your Super Bowl three years ago.

UNBELIEVEABLE!

They scored too Fast!

49er16 said...

The Steelers sure didn''t play Steelers football the last few minutes....

jebworks said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:49:00 PM  

WOW, now this is an f'ing finish!

Repeat after me: The Arizona Cardinals (THE ARIZONA FUCKING CARDINALS!) are 2:37 minutes away from winning a Super Bowl.

And so much for my short-lived ESP.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:49:00 PM  

Looks like the Steelers will stay at five SuperBowls!

jebworks said...

WTF ? Game on the line and James Harrison is the one covering Fitzgerald ?

What a flagfest.


Yeah, Seattle sports is done.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:51:00 PM  

And the Cards are exactly that, 2:37 away from the Super Bowl. Now it's Big Ben's turn to give us something we'll never forget.

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:51:00 PM  

Coming back from being down by 13 against the best defense! That's what wins games, I guess.

jebworks said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:52:00 PM  

Anybody up for OT ?

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:53:00 PM  

@ SSR: I know this is a depressing day for yourself and Seattle sports, but please refrain from destroying your TV and/or jumping out the window ;-)

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:54:00 PM  

Still hope Big Ben call pull it off. It's time for a two minute drive...

jebworks said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:55:00 PM  

@ JFein, no, it's done, it's never coming back and this city is an embarrassment.

SSReporters said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:55:00 PM  

This sure beats the hell out of the last Super Bowl played in Raymond James Stadium.

Why aren't they going to Jim Cantore for the weather?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 9:57:00 PM  

Could we have another Scott Norwood moment?

This is crazy!

no doubt! both feet on the ground.....!

First Vinitari and now Holmes. I think Warner has been praying to the wrong God.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:04:00 PM  

All the cameras NBC has at game, and still cant clearly show feet down

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:05:00 PM  

The only good news for the Cardinals is that they have 2 timeouts.

Word verification: cheese.

JFein said...

How is it that every Super Bowl that Kurt Warner plays in it comes down to the last play?

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:07:00 PM  

Fuck! The Steelers move ahead of the 49ers in Super Bowl wins.

49er16 said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:09:00 PM  

I think that arm was coming forward...

JFein said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:09:00 PM  

3 dl vs 5 OL no way Warner should have been under that much pressure.

jg said...
Feb 1, 2009, 10:10:00 PM  

BOOYAH!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this game moves past NE Vs. NY in excitment.
