The Superbowl I Have Always Wanted

Stories broke today that NBC announced plans to let everyone stream (live) the Superbowl as well as have it broadcast live to Verizon mobile devices! This is huge!

Think back five years ago and you wouldn’t have imagined that this would be the case. Mobile and web has always been seen as an also-ran and never really been given massive thought. This is a big shift.

This is the most popular, and watched show in the United States. I hope that it goes very well and that maybe the Networks will realize that they can make money this way as well and in turn give people like myself the ability to stream every game. I’m happy to pay for it. Shoot I’ll even pay per game provided the $$ is right.

A step in the right direction for football fans!


What’s Wrong with a Taunt?

I keep reading chatter about Vick this morning and the way he taunted the fans at the game last night.

Here is the incident: he’s hurt, leaves the field, gets boo’d, points to the scoreboard as retaliation.

Where exactly is the problem in this?

That attitude is what makes him Michael Vick. Like him or not and dogs aside he is a monster in that game. I hate that he wins since I’m a Cowboys fan but he does and he must be held to account. That arrogance and bravado is what makes him the aggressive player that he is.

It’s the same mentality that makes good players great and sometimes gets them into trouble. Don’t believe me? Go look at Favre’s interception ratio, Romo’s interception ratio. Brady has the same attitude on the field as does Rivers. It’s not the way every player plays (I’m not even arguing that they should) but it’s the way some do and for them it’s the only way to play.

Don’t muzzle the testosterone!
