fwiw, fun fact; there will be 1.3 billion chicken wings eaten in the u.s. on superbowl sunday alone. that comes out to every man ,woman and child in u.s to have 4 wings each. and if you where to line them up from wing tip to wing tip you could go to and from fox borough stadium to falcon stadium 60 times.

Well, around 32 of them will be consumed here at ChezArchi this evening. The little buggers are brining now. We're just trying to do our part to make America satiated again.

because he was a cancer to every team he played for??...no one can question his talent but the guy was a terrible teammate

Like that matters. There are a bunch of guys in all the HOF's who weren't the greatest people, or the greatest teammates. But they could all ball. TO could ball.

it obviously does matter otherwise he would be in by now...and Owens wasn't the typical bad teammate, he was an awful teammate who turned on his teammates and coaches on 3 different teams

c'mon now...you can't be serious...it's like the guy who murders a bunch of people and his parents and a few friends go on the news and talk about how great of a kid he was and how they would never expect that...Owens was a cancer and no amount of whitewashing can cover up that fact

Comparing him to a murder is pretty silly. I 'm not even a fan of his, but the hall isn't for the nicest guy, it is for the best players and he is a top 3 all time receiver. I promise you there are more then a few scum bags in the hall.

I wasn't comparing him to a murderer...I was comparing those articles you linked trying to paint him as a good guy who was misunderstood to a murderer who gets backed up by his friends and family...Owens will get in to the HoF but I'm glad he will have to wait a few years...definitely is not worthy of a first or 2nd time enshrinement...shows that character that does matter among the voters

The game isn't the only thing that will get a lot of talk. The way the halftime show has been hyped, expect huge responses on Twitter, and lots of outrage, sadness, happiness, and talk of boycotts. It's going to get ugly.

The halftime thread is the one I'm most worried about.

Nah, we'll all be too busy going ga-ga over that Lady's outfits, watching intently for "wardrobe malfunctions".

Or, you know, eating and drinking. Or, Puppy Bowl! Always my favorite halftime entertainment.

That would be me! I thought I'd posted that at sign ups. You want my pick posted publically? And allow you to pick the opposite in order to have a chance to take the prize? Hmmm

Whatever happened to the lingerie bowl at halftime? Now that would make a good thread.

We all gathered 'round the food at halftime thinking 'the Birds got this!', then left with a feeling of 'WTH just happened?!?'. Congrats Pats fans and yes I'll say it, Brady is GOAT (for now). At leas it was a decent game, no blowout or one-sidedness. On to next season!

Chad, you know that feeling won't last and you'll be back with us .

My flabber has been gasted and my gob has been smacked. Anything else?
