Super Bowl Tweets better than the game itself

Denver PostWell, that was a riveting Super Bowl.  Not!

If you feel bad about not being entertained, consider the fact that the most watched program in US television history was even more of a downer for Colorado residents and those bearing the last name of Manning.

Things were so bad that for the first Super Bowl Sunday in years, a record number of Americans actually made it to work on time the following day.  Not surprising since Super Bust XLVIII was over from the initial hut.

Can you say blowout?  I knew that you could.

What most expected to be a competitive football game turned out to be a rout.

While the lackluster contest kept most of us frequenting the cheese dip more often than we cared to, at least we had Twitter to keep us entertained.  With the Denver Broncos failing to show up, or at least Seattle making it look that way, those with a Twitter account had a field day bashing what was supposed to be one of the most accomplished offenses in NFL history.

Without further ado, here are some of the most entertaining Tweets from the final football game of the season.

  1. Do they shoot off the extra blue/orange confetti when they hand out the Broncos Super Bowl Champs shirts to third world kids? Priceless! LOL!

    The NFL Championship game was played in Seattle between the Seahawks/NFL officials and the 49ers… Look I’m a fan of both teams but really? How many terrible calls were made in that game? It seems the NFL has got to manipulate the games for some damned reason (money)…

  3. Dwin…

    I just wonder what the outcome would have been had the Niners played the Broncos.

    But you’re right.

    I think the NFL will take a cold hard look at its use of instant replay and next year, we could see some dramatic, and well-needed, changes.

  4. via Gene Haddock:

    Damn! First snap rolled halfway to OMAHA!

    The groundhog came out, and did NOT see Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    On a serious tip… Jack Del Rio STILL sucks!

  5. Jack Del Rio indeed still sucks. As did that dreck called the “Super Bowl.” I want my money back. Oh wait, that’s a couple more years down the road when we’ll have to pay for access to the “Big Game.” Filled with sarcasm over what a joke the Denver “attack” plan was. Of course Seattle has a fantastic defense. That’s why you take counter-measures. Good Lord, it was like Andy Reid was coaching the Broncos.

  6. Han…

    On that first play, I Tweeted something to the effect of “Did you see that snap? Apparently Broncos center Manny Ramirez isn’t the only Manny Ramirez to juice.”

    Speaking of juicing (allegedly), congratulations to Roger Clemens who was just admitted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame.

  7. Burnsy…

    I totally forgot Del Rio was their DC til they showed him on the screen mid way through. I then thought to myself “Of course, it all makes sense now.”

    Going into the game I figured Denver would continue with that dink and dunk, short-out game plan. Seattle knew that too. Problem was a) they were ready for it and b) as the game progressed, no Bronco wanted a part of getting clobbered.

    More surprisingly, Denver seemed to be only prepared for Marshawn Lynch but not the dinking and dunking Seattle would do. I though that was a brilliant plan, to give Denver a dose of their own medicine.

    Denver was ill-prepared on both ends of the ball and it showed.

  8. And fans are still trying to suggest that soccer is boring ? LOL,LOL,LOL,LOL!!! Not after having watched this bull and with the league selling the event itself as a success . Commercially it may well have been, considering the billions reaped by the broadcaster , Fox Sports and what the NFL may well reap. As a /game spectacle it was a monumental eyesore . One team came to play and the other simply shat in their pants , because they were so scared of hurting themselves .

    Romo and Russell Wilson exchanged compliments before Romo had the audacity ask the winning quarterback what his ring size was and he borrow it for a night upon his receipt of his prize . The winning team gets $53 ,000 apiece , and adulation . Not bad until you look at the salaries of Wilson and Richard Sherman . These guys can now look to get paid at the time of contract negotiations .

  9. We’re just not used to soccer, Al, still, despite the fact that all of us played it as kids. That’s the weirdest thing.

    At some point in our adolescence, there comes a disconnect where we no longer care about the sport.

    And I think Seattle brass has their calculators out to figure out how they’re going to pay all these people because they will all be going to the window soon.

  10. Hello Triple Sc, I sure was waiting for this post! Loved this collection! And as truly pissed off I was about seeing Bill O’Reilly interrupting my pregame celebration, it was quickly forgotten since it was such an awful game! Until I saw the picture of O’Reilly in your post! Bad flashbacks came rushing back! WTH were they doing there? I changed the freaking station until Yaz told gave me the all clear!
    Dee Dee

  11. Ya know what, D?

    I think you and I were as confused as everyone else who happened to be glued to those four Fox hours of pre-game, until we realized what network was covering the event.

    Everything was nice, cozy and football-related (with the frightening exception of Jimmy Johnson jumping around and high-fiving fans) when all of the sudden, Fox decided to subject us to the most uncomfortable fifteen minutes in television… until Peyton took his first snap.

    I get that Fox wanted to support their guy and their stance. O’Reilly will still have his supporters after that pre-game grilling. I’m just not going to be one of them.
