    gomey wants me to talk about football in order to remain on this forum so every now and then I will lay a little bit of "Ball" on you.

    The Super Bowl & the National Anthem:
    Francis Scott Key the man who wrote the National Anthem must have been rolling, screaming and kicking in his grave if he could hear the way that guy that sang it "BUTCHERED" that song at the opening of the Super Bowl, I had to "MUTE" my TV, I was embarrased for him.

    By the look of his face as he screamed you would think he was in the first stages of developing a massive Hernia.

    I missed the anthem, I was fixin the supernachos at the time, however why doesn't he get that thing removed from his forehead? Asthetics aside wouldn't you think that some Dermatoligists somewhere would want to at least screen it?

    It wasn't great, but the combination of Aaron Neville and Aretha Franklin, even when not great, is really good. Besides that, the Star Spangled Banner is a really ugly song; I wish American the Beautiful was our national anthem. Then, people could actually sing along.

    So what did you think of the officiating then? I have no desire to ban you or anyone else for that matter. I just noticed that you had no interest in football and was curious as to how you found the forum. Most people post on here because they are Patriots fans, so I was a little surprised....

    God love you Nem, you do have a little bit of good in you, I commend you on this post, again "God Bless You"

    Gome,
    I explained, I know "NOTHING" about football, if I tried to "talk football" with you I would be eaten alive, you would destroy me.

    Sex and Beer drinking, now thats another story.

    I agree. It was about the worst I have seen. The Offensive PI call, Roethlisberger's TD, the holding penalties and at least one blatant offsides when the OLB (Haggans?) was in the backfield at the snap were diabolical. I like the petition that NEM mentioned. I'll check it out. As someone on the main forum pointed out, how does the winning QB have a rating of 22? That's not to take some culpability from the Hawks, who made some bad calls.

    I agree, especially about that first Steeler "TD".

    What, no love for Hendrix? Just kidding. Besides, even if they changed the Anthem it would still get butchered. Let some kid come out and do it or something like that. At least they would have an excuse instead of intentionally making us collectively yawn and check our watches.

    Rene Ranchor (sp?) of the Bruins back in the 80's, was the only person who's ever done that song the justice it deserves.

    Of course, you lot will never do the National Anthem justice, as you are singing the wrong one: all together now- "God save our gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen....". :D

    I do agree that some people have massacred yours over the years. I agree with NEM- have a band doing it.

    They should make the Jimi Hendrix version the official one!
