There Are Safeties Weaker Than Ryan Seacrest

You know, we didn't mean to come across as openly derisive toward Ryan Seacrest yesterday when we pointed out that he will be a co-host of the Super Bowl this year. In fact, we clearly underestimated the guy. » 8/17/07 11:10am 8/17/07 11:10am

The Super Bowl Gets More SUPER

You might think that Richard Simmons hanging out with Howie Long and company is just an anomaly, a tiny bit of happenstance. But then again, you don't know who's hosting the pregame and halftime festivities for Fox at Super Bowl XLII. » 8/16/07 12:35pm 8/16/07 12:35pm

When Will The Media Elite Stop Tearing Down Our White Heroes?

Every debate needs comic relief, and God bless him, Rush Limbaugh is always good for that. The former director of promotions for the Kansas City Royals in the early 1980s, and at one time the word's fifth-leading importer of OxyContin (behind Brazil), Limbaugh has become in recent years obsessed with the race of NFL… » 2/08/07 11:00am 2/08/07 11:00am

Hey, Why Is Kenny Chesney Suddenly Calling Me?

In our original neck of the woods in Mattoon, Ill., NFL loyalties are rather split. Some people root for the Chicago Bears (four hours away), some root for the Indianapolis Colts (90 minutes away) and some odd souls hopped on the Rams bandwagon (two hours away). (Some insane people stuck with the former Buzzsaw That… » 2/07/07 3:00pm 2/07/07 3:00pm

Stuart Scott Is Ready To Kick Some Mustache Ass

The Big Lead has a fun wrapup of media party-related stories from the Super Bowl — which was Sunday, by the way — and we enjoyed this one considerably. » 2/06/07 3:45pm 2/06/07 3:45pm

Mmmmm ... Super Bowl Ad Controversy

Well, that was $2.5 million well spent. Not only did the "Snickers car mechanics kiss" Super Bowl ad horrify Rex Grossman, but it has also angered gay and human rights groups, NASCAR fans, makers of other candy, lovers of motor oil, Puppy Bowl III participants, Muslims and most species of fish. (In case you missed it,… » 2/06/07 10:30am 2/06/07 10:30am

Yes, It Was A Good Night For The Colt

In case you were wondering how Bear Vs. Colt turned out, here's your answer: With the Colt in bed with an attractive blond woman. That sounds about right. » 2/05/07 1:30pm 2/05/07 1:30pm

About That Glogging Thing ...

As many of you know, while the rest of you were all out enjoying cool icy beverages and collectively mocking Carlos Mencia commercials over spinach dip during the Super Bowl last evening, we were in our dark apartment, tapping out the live "glog" at CBS Sportsline. We were reminded that there's a reason The Mighty MJD » 2/05/07 11:45am 2/05/07 11:45am

Daulerio at SBXLI: Do Not Bother Matt Geiger When He's Talking To…

AJ Daulerio has been Deadspin's "correspondent" all week at the Super Bowl in Miami. He wraps up his coverage today with two tales. The first is from the Penthouse Party on Friday night. » 2/05/07 11:00am 2/05/07 11:00am

It Washes Away Memories From The Sidewalks Of Life

When we look back at Super Bowl XLI in a few years, what will we remember most? The Sex Cannon's free-flying vertical missives into the night? Tony Dungy at last setting race relations straight in this country? Jimmy Fallon sitting next to Janet Reno on a couch? We figure the lasting image of Super Bowl XLI will be of… » 2/05/07 10:30am 2/05/07 10:30am

Perhaps He Was Looking Forward Too Much To Next New Years Eve

We know this has been beaten into the ground by now, but really do consider it instructive to think of not only of the Indianapolis Colts as the St. Louis Cardinals, but also the Chicago Bears as the Detroit Tigers. In the former example, a team that had earned much recent success finally won a championship with one… » 2/05/07 9:15am 2/05/07 9:15am

Your Uninspiring Super Bowl Champion Colts

In one of the duller, more sloppy Super Bowls we can remember — it was kind of the equivalent of this year's World Series, actually — the Indianapolis Colts have won the NFL Championship. We're back from our labors — and labors they were indeed — at CBS and happy to back here. Congratulations, Indianapolis; we will… » 2/04/07 10:11pm 2/04/07 10:11pm

Daulerio at SBXLI: Yes, Somehow Freddie Mitchell Got Into the Maxim…

Maxim's Superbowl Shitshow party was everything one could hope for and so much more. The Sagamore Hotel transformed itself into a beachfront paradise with celebrities and athletes, and, of course FredEx and his Godly hands cavorting about the joint. Freddie Mitchell was attached to Irishman Brady Quinn and Julius… » 2/03/07 3:00pm 2/03/07 3:00pm

This Is Probably Not A Good Idea, But ...

So you know the Super Bowl? Big game, Bears-Colts, this Sunday, Billy Joel's gonna be there? Yeah, that one. Well, in a move we'll probably end up regretting, we have accepted an invitation to do the live blog of the game for CBS Sportsline. We decided to do this because the Super Bowl is on CBS, and lots of people… » 2/02/07 5:15pm 2/02/07 5:15pm

Super Bowl Pants Party: Bears Vs. Colts

You know, this football season has been so much fun that we really are sad to see it end. But, alas, it has to, and there's an actual game Sunday, if you can believe it. Will we have another year of mocking Peyton Manning for choking? Because we'd almost be sad if we couldn't do that anymore. Awfully sad. » 2/02/07 4:00pm 2/02/07 4:00pm
