Friends, I beseech you. Can we get back to the football predictions and save the broken bone horror stories for another time? Thank You!

One game left, who's gonna win it?

Those fuck*ng undead asshole Patriots are chalk.

I need an English to Asherdan translator for this one. I think you're saying the Patriots are going to lose, but I'm not certain.

Chalk is a gambling term for strong favorite.  I assume he is using it to mean definitely going to win, though I've never heard it used that way.  I don't get nerd shit, but I think the undead has something to do with like elves or something?

The way I'm familiar with chalk you would say I'm taking chalk if it meant you were going to wager on the patriots.  I know what it means but have never used it/don't totally know how.

I've heard "chalk" in use with the NCAA tournament. Like, if all the favored teams won in a region in the first round, you'd say "The East region was all chalk today."

Anywho, as much as I'd like to pick the Falcons, the Patriots are just too good.

Their only chance, really, is if they score like they are capable, and they get home on blitzes.  Pat's O-line is looking better and better though.

I am so not a Patriots fan, and would have preferred a Falcons win, but damn that was an entertaining finish. The Patriots did a much better job of adjusting after halftime--the Falcons were getting to Brady in the first half, then in the second half the Pats started picking up that rush. I know the CW is that if you blitz Brady he'll destroy you, but the Falcons just refused to send more than four guys after him and just couldn't do a thing.

In a reversal of SOP the Superbowl was the best goddamn game of the year. It was especially nice for me because despite the fact that Brady is the Trump supporter it seemed that most of my Atlanta loving Facebook friends were predominately the Trump folks. Suck it Trumpsters.

I mean, Tom Brady's victory parade float could keel over and burst into flames, crushing and burning him to death simultaneously, and I'd go for sticks and marshmallows but I still gotta admit how hella classic the SB LI game was.

Congratulations to an entire class of insufferable fuck-balls.

This is my sentiment completely.

The Patriots did a much better job of adjusting after halftime.

I told my sister on the phone that it looks pretty bleak for the Patriots, but they are so smart and well coached that if any team can come back it's them.

Regardless of Team affiliation, the consensus among my Facebook friends is that Lada Gaga was fuck*ng awesome. On that I hope we can all agree.

I didn't take part in the festivities, but I was living it vicariously on Facebook. It looks like Houston did a real bang up job of hosting the game.

Yeah, I enjoyed the Gaga show. It was ridiculous and over the top, but Lady Gaga + Super Bowl Halftime Show, what would you expect.

Is basketball still a sport? It's been hard for me to follow ever since #8/#21 cratered that purple and gold franchise.

(I realize this is a rhetorical question, but I'm answering it anyway.)
Well sure, but I don't like the turn the game has taken in the past few years. In the other major sports, there's at least some sense that if you make the playoffs and things go your way, you could win a championship. In the NBA right now, there are MAYBE six teams with a realistic shot at the championship. Sure, 16 teams make the playoffs, but if you're a five seed or below the chances are close to 100% that you will get crushed by one of those six teams long before the NBA finals. And the realization of this fact has led to shitty basketball teams racing for the bottom in an effort to get better draft picks. And that may in fact be a good long-term strategy, but it's painful to watch. So some 70% of the national basketball coverage is "What are the Cavs and Warriors up to?" with occasional checks on the Spurs, Thunder, and maybe Rockets and whoever's second or third in the East.

The reverse seemed to be true for my Facebook friends. A few in particular thought cheering for the Patriots was a patriotic act and some worked Trump into it.

This reminded me of how I came to hate the Patriots. I had an insufferable prick of a roommate in college from Connecticut. He was also a fan of all the teams in New York and New England. After 9/11 he went on incessantly about how the Yankees just "had to" win the World Series that year. I felt for New York like any other American and I love the city, but they had just knocked my Mariners out in the ALCS (after their wildly successful regular season) so I was getting really tired of him. Then my man and former Mariner Randy Johnson and the Diamondbacks took care of business and shut him up for a few months.

Then came the Super Bowl. The Patriots just "had to" win, because America and it would really show those terrorists. And again he wouldn't shut up about it.  And they won. And ever since then I've hated that team.

There was back and forth about this on my Twitter feed. A few people said New England = mostly blue states, and Georgia = red state. But consensus seemed to be that Brady and Belichek are friends with Trump, so fuck them, and Atlanta's got John Lewis, so.

For my friends it was definitely a north south thing.
