Super Bowl XLII live-blogging

UPDATED 10:33 p.m.

Jimmy Johnson never got over the ’87 Fiesta Bowl. Neither did Vinny Testaverde, heh.

Belichick took off his red sweatshirt. He looks devastated. Good.

I expect at least one NY tabloid to have the headline WE WIN on one of their covers tomorrow.

UPDATED 10:28 p.m.

Enjoy this moment Eli, we’ll like you for a little while because you saved us from another damn Patriots/Brady Super Bowl win.

The PATRIOTS CHOKED!

UPDATED 10:23 p.m.

“Certainly knew what they were doing, apparently?” Huh.

Who dressed Howie Long tonight?

So, is the Ewing Theory now the Tiki Theory?

Somebody get Terry a cough drop.

I love having a former MVP present the trophy. Good to see Doug Williams.

Um, nice suit commissioner. Manning is MVP. Who’d of thunk it?!

New York (or NJ) triumphs over Boston (New England), things are right in the world again!

UPDATED 10:05 p.m.

The Patriots are quitting!

UPDATED 10:00 p.m.

DOWN GOES BRADY! JAY ALFORD, COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATIONS PENN STATE REPRESENT!
:25 to go. 2nd down

UPDATED 9:57 p.m.

MANNING TO BURRESS FOR SIX! HOLY FECKING SCHNIT!

Giants 17 Patriots 14

Here comes the obligatory Europe!

UPDATED 9:52

WOW. How did that happen? Manning, mobile, David Tyree somehow there?

UPDATED 9:50 p.m.

Oh, that damn Bush song.

They get the first, despite no Pilsbury Throw boy. You owe us Tom Coughlin!
UPDATED 9:47 p.m.
Play of the ball game, right here, fourth down. Put in LORENZEN!

Ben Rothliesburger singing that damn pina colada song. That might haunt my dreams tonight.

Oh boy, Push It.

Manning, throwing off of his back foot, great.

Great open field, special teams tackle by Ray Ventrone. There, now I’ve assured that I will get hits for people looking for Ray Ventrone for the rest of eternity.

UPDATED 9:40 p.m.

Brady to Moss, d’oh!

14-10 Patriots

Time for Manning to become a hero.

UPDATED 9:38 p.m.

Hey, Brady, throw it to the guys in white.

Come Giants D, you didn’t even have to play for the first ten minutes of the game.

UPDATED 9:33
Uh oh, the Patriots are waking up. The bananas aren’t working for the G-men.

Okay…things just got weirder.

btw, in terms of Macy’s balloon accidents:

1997 – Cat in The Hat
2005 – M&M

And now for the weird part…

UPDATED 9:29 p.m.
The Will Ferrell Bud Light ad was great.

If I were Manning, I’d be really mad at Plaxico Burress for letting up after that great scramble. If I were Burress, I would be mad at my parents for giving me a name that sounds like a dental hygiene product. He could put the game away if he catches that throw.

UPDATED 9:21 p.m.

If the Giants can’t hang on, we will live in a world where Wes Welker is Super Bowl MVP.

The e-trade baby isn’t bad.

I think I could get into the show House. The character seems to be based on the Ombudsman’s repressed id.

UDPATED 9:13 p.m.

Agent Zero and G-Whiz!

TOUCHDOWN GIANTS! Somewhere in Maryland, a former R.A. is having a flashback to somebody playing Temco Super Bowl at 2 a.m.

BEGINNING OF THE FOURTH QUARTER

Finally a big play! Shockey in the booth, ha!

Oh boy, Fox is doing the game so we get lots of celebrity shots!

Where the hell was Lucy? Coke blew a great gag!

How nice of Dateline NBC to let Chris Hansen punt today.

Prediction — next team to score wins.

I think the Chester Pitts (oboe player) ad is the best of the night.

We’ve got almost two full quarters without a score.

Too humid? In the desert! Open the roof.

UPDATED 8:50 p.m.

Ah, throwing deep into triple coverage, always a good decision. I thought I was watching Anthony Morelli.

Going for it on 4th and 13 at Giants 30 wasn’t a horrible call by New England, but they should not have gone so deep.

Shrunken heads are better than Shaq on a horse.

Does anybody still consider Carmen Electra hot?

Brady is all out of sorts. I like it.

The panda ad will anger some people.

HALFTIME SHOW

Erica “Tom Petty isn’t getting any younger.”

Tough start on “American Girl”, by “Freefalling” he was doing okay and he finished strong with “Running Down a Dream”

HALFTIME

I think Terry Bradshaw must have taken a horse tranquilizer.

Good game so far, a few turnovers, some punishing runs and Brady is making mistakes and getting sacked.

I like the ad with Justin Timberlake getting racked.

It is time to retire the Rocky theme.

UPDATED 7:33 p.m.

Did anyone catch who the half-time show performer is today?

Hey Belichek, the guy in the red shirt always dies!

Tom Brady sacked twice in a row!

Several punts in a row, Madison Ave. rejoices.

Manning intercepted — PUT IN JARED LORENZEN! I want a 290 lbs QB in the game.

UPDATED 7:05 p.m.

Enormus carrier pigeons should be funnier.

Nice kickoff New England.

Wanted looks like a stupid movie.

Patriots score, PAT good. I hope you enjoyed your lead Giants, it might be gone for good.

I can’t recall a first quarter of a Super Bowl any game going so quickly. Thanks Giants! Two possessions it turns out.

Doritos singer — not terrible.

UPDATE 6:46

16 plays, 9:59 time of possession, only 3 points.

UPDATE 6:41 P.M.

The Patriots defense is getting manhandled so far.

Kelvin Gilbride? I wonder if Buddy Ryan just shot the television.

Brandon Jacobs just bulldozed the Patriots for seven. Sweet.

Phoenix has a pretty unimpressive skyline, I think Tysons Corner has a better one.

UPDATED: 6:25 P.M.

How many captains do they need?

Wasn’t Steve Young a backup under Walsh?

Is the spin on the coin different because Ronnie Lott is missing a finger?

The roof is closed, boo!

Jordan Sparks was fine.


NFL people reading the Declaration of Independence — take that limeys!

Shiny ties on Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

First gratuitous Tom Brady shot.
