A super… Super Bowl Special Review
:10 Hold up… Wait a minute… Oh man, get on your feet and jam… We don’t need no music. We got soul… If you ain’t gonna party, take your dead xx home… The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire…We don’t need no water let the xx burn… Awwww Sooki Sooki now!! Yep, all of them. You can use all them good old par-tay shout outs and it won’t come close to what Beyonce did… Are–You–Kiddin–Me? Did you see her? Did you see them? Did you see her?? There will be an emergency meeting called with the “Top Ten Committee” cause somebody’s “body” has got to go! Ms. Beyonce has just moved into the No. 1 spot. Sorry Halle and J-Lo. Step it down one. By the way, she gets 4 stars—4 basketballs—hell—4 cucumbers, I don’t care… it’s over!!!
:09 You can’t discount the emotional ride. Just ask Hines Ward how bad they wanted to win for Jerome Bettis. The Ravens rode the Ray Lewis emotional horse all the way to the Super Bowl title. Well played Ray, well played. Deer antler juice and all!
:08 Did ya’ll see Beyonce?!? Oh my bad. Back to the game.
:07 Don’t get me wrong. Emotion is good and talent is essential, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a no-call when Jimmy Smith assaulted Michael Crabtree in the end zone. That was a flag, no doubt about it. C’mon ref!
:06 Joe Flacco named MVP… I am ok with it, but a lot can be said for Jacoby Jones’ more than 300 collective yards, including the 108 yard kick-off return, longest in Super Bowl history.
:05 The night the lights went out in New Orleans. Call it a desperate attempt by the 49ers to slow the Ravens machine down. Call it bad luck in the bayou, but if you ask me, that was Miss Rudolph putting a “root” on somebody and the stadium just got in the way.
:04 In spite of the Ravens jumping on the 49ers for a 28-6 first half lead, both teams showed up. Both defenses showed up. Both offenses showed up big time, but hats off to both quarterbacks. Flacco and Colin Kaepernick brought their A-games and both will be in the elite circle come 2014. Take it to the bank.
:03 Key players made key plays. Anquan Boldin was huge; Ed Reed’s 9th play-off interception; Randy Moss’ classic over the head two handed catch to keep a drive alive; Ray Lewis play after play and you know he’s hurtin’; Kaepernick’s touchdown run and plenty of big hits; Frank Gore’s brutal running; Truly a Super Bowl to remember.
:02 Don’t worry. Don’t worry. I didn’t forget Alicia Keyes… yes – you – are – all – that!
Girl, you’re “finer than frogs hair” and you can play and sing like that. You get 4 stars too and all the gumbo you want!
:01 Rrriiinnnggg… rrriiinnnggg… hello, Super Bowl Headquarters. How can I help you? Ah, yeah, ah, what’s up… this is Smitty from Smitty’s Bar and Grill in Pittsburgh… you know, the place you stab-um and we slab-um. Ok sir, not quite sure I know the place, but what– do-you–want? Who? You want to talk to who? You’re joking right? No my man. I am real serious and I need you to do this for me. Don’t leave me hanging. This is about my life and my death. Sir, I cannot and I will not deliver that message! Dude, Dude, just listen to me. Just tell Beyonce it’s Smitty. She’ll come to the phone I promise you… hello… hello… hello… hello… hello…
:00 DOUBLE OVERTIME
History will remember this Super Bowl not because of the score, and not because of the brothers coaching against each other, not even for the deer juice! It will be remembered as the Blackest Super Bowl of all time, and not because the lights went out. Just remember this…Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, Black quarterback Colin Kaepernick and even the Head Official was Black. Now-That’s-What-I’m-Talking-About!
~ GAME OVER… I mean really ~
