Super Bowl Sunday Open Thread

I hope everyone enjoys the game today.

As HA/JOA expands here to incorporate different subjects into its offering, sports will certainly be part of that. We’re already working on setting up a Sounders blog, but we want to hear about what else to cover. If you have any interest in being a sports blogger with us, drop me an email (linked on my name above).

    YLB spews:

    Against the steelers ‘cuz I’m a hometown fan.

    Against the cards because arrogance leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

  2. 7

    Black Me spews:

    They’d rather not discuss it but have to otherwise they can’t compete for the vote.

    There were aspects of the program where Steele discussed the need to forge a different path for the GOP. He talked openly about his work with the centrist Republican Leadership Council, and — more broadly — about the need to recruit moderates back into the party tent. At one point, he highlighted poverty and education reform as two issues that could be new areas of focus for the party.

  3. 8

    Black Me spews:

    They’d rather not talk about anything, they just want to steal money for the rest of their lives but they have to because the Democrats bring the issues to the forefront. Energy Policy, no not until every American is being fucked up the ass by some Arab Oilman. Global warming, not not until some of their own idiots start to realize it is an issue. Healthcare, no not until their own trailer trash distant cousin can’t get it or has lost all their front teeth. Education, no, again, not until their own trailer trash distant cousin learns how to spell corruption. There is one thing that we can be sure of, and that is if the Republicans had their way, we would live in a dictatorship, where there would be no abortions and their would be a constitutional ban on gay marriage. Hip Hip Horay.

    I like watching ice hockey, especially when they use a Republican as a stand-in for the puck.

    Well hockey is a white sport. And I think we do have a game with RNC Chairman Steel as the black puck.

    Anazingly, stillbentover@3 and rerun@5 are doing their pinhead dance (picture them again here).

    Why didn’t stillbentover go further on PMSNBC site?

    Since the NSF is funding embryonic stem cell research (yelling and screaming from the libtard progressives) and biofuels (Al Gorebasm’s favrit) at major universities after Bush was against embryonic stem cell research; I think there is a high probability the fired staffers were using their progressive thoughts to expand their progressive minds looking at that porn.





    You can see the local porn eye in action in posts #5 & #6.

    I’m also sure the 37 other retired black players will call BULLSHITTIUM on your stupidity.

    As an Oreo and a race traitor – I am not sure Puffybutt’s brothers would appreciate him saying ANYTHING about the black race. Puffybutt’s self-loathing is at the core of his decision to act like a cunt and vote GOP.

    How’s that working for you Oreo? In case you didn’t notice – your side got its ASS KICKED. You suck at everything don’t you? Or is it you just plain suck?

    Broadway Joe spews:

    Personally, the only dog I had in this fight was hoping the punters bet and bet well. Judging from the hefty receipt envelopes I lugged back into the auditing office at the CalNeva, my dog won. Being a good Seattle sports fan, I couldn’t root for either a division rival or the team that stole SB XL from us (with the help of the zebras, of course).

    But it did get me to thinking. Given President Obama’s support for the Steelers, a sentiment returned by the Rooney family on multiple levels, and a few calls that could’ve gone either way (especially the Harrison INT return at the end of the first half), I wonder if some right-wing radio gasbag will start some sort of conspiracy theory in the morning that, in so many words, Obama had the game thrown?

    I admit that it sounds pretty ludicrous, but what else would we expect?

  11. 18

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:


    Calling me an Oreo, doesn’t matter. Even Steve told you to stop but old habits die hard like you removing the dildo up you ASS.

    WeBentOverTheGOP spews:

    So Oreo in Chief Puffybutt seems to have (in addition to his other perverted interests) a high level of interest in dildo use. I guess having a fat ugly wife who pulls trains on the local sailors leaves you frustrated doesn’t it Puffbutt?

    How you doing with the utter defeat of everything you claim to stand for bitch? How’s it feel to have to bow to a REAL black man PRESIDENT OBAMA?

    Get used to loooooosing bitch. You’re wrong about America and all of your pals are wrong too. Which is why America REJECTED them – and you too cunt! LOL!

  13. 21

    WeBentOverTheGOP spews:

    I have several REAL Black friends. To a man they all said any Black person who’d vote for and shill for the GOP is an Oreo. If the shoe fits Puffybutt – wear it. Did you always wish you were born white?

  14. 22

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:


    You chose that name you nut. God always allows morons to demonstrate their moral character. So the question was why did you choose bentover? It had to be something back in that single celled amoeba you call your mind. I just took it to it’s logical conclusion.

  15. 23

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:

    StillBentOver has “black friends”. These friends will go to battle with you when race issues are clearly articulated?

    I’d love to meet these people. I’d gladly show them some of your best on HA and then ask them if they are still your friends.

    Regarding politics, once a black person becomes educated on the real facts of race in America, and how you, the Donkey, have not lifted a finger to help my people, and lastly how the poverty pimps don’t help our cause, they’ll come around. I was in Atlanta before the election. I turned on one of the black radio stations in the car. I was surprised at the number of educated black men and women who didn’t support Obama. They saw through him. It has worked before and it’ll work again.

    Once someone gets off the reservation, it’s hard for them to allow themselves to become subjugated by Donkey masters!

    BTW StillBentOver, how did I know in the picture which was you versus rerun@14? Your shirt was soiled under your mouth. It’s from coprophagia, your favrit past time.

  18. 27

    correctnotright spews:

    @23: Once again, Puddy tries to use limited personal experience to try and prove a point.

    I was in Atlanta before the election. I turned on one of the black radio stations in the car. I was surprised at the number of educated black men and women who didn’t support Obama.

    The actual data:

    All major exit polls showed between 96% and 97% of African Americans who voted, voted for Obama.

    Fully 96 percent of black voters supported Obama and constituted 13 percent of the electorate, a 2-percentage-point rise in their national turnout. As in past years, black women turned out at a higher rate than black men.

    A stunning 54 percent of young white voters supported Obama, compared with 44 percent who went for McCain, the senator from Arizona. In the past three decades, no Democratic presidential nominee has won more than 45 percent of young whites.

    The bigger question: Why is Puddy (and his personal opinions) so far off from reality?

    And: If Puddy’s opinions have so little basis in fact or so little credibility – why does he bother to post them?

  19. 28

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:

    Oh yeah correctnotbright: These are the same exit poller types who showed John Kerry winning in 2004. Of course you forget that.

    Where was I discussing young white peeps?

    Where is the Atlanta “exit polls”. Remember (paraphrasing) we were told blacks who voted for Obama did it for his race. Why should I vote for the most liberal senator in the senate. Guess which libtard said that on HA? Look it up.

    Exit polling only gets what someone wants to give them to hear.

    You forgot the rest of that post you fool

    “Now let’s think beyond the silliness and the euphoria created by a media dominated by the Left. Obama has the most Left leaning voting record in the U.S. Senate, as agreed to by leftist organizations. Let’s think about the facts as we know them:

    Obviously, the African American vote was racist. Obviously this does not bode well for the future of democracy in America, regardless of Obama’s ideology as evidenced by his voting record”

  20. 29

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:

    Hey Proud To Be An Ass:

    You just viewed what Dr correctnotright tried to pull off above. Yanking the first sentence from a post to make his biased argument. When I post the rest of the story, I saw something different.

    What say you PTBAA?

  21. 30

    correctnotright spews:

    @29: I used your own words Puddy. You have a problem with your own words?

    Now you are trying to question the demographic data from the election? Hahaha – the exit polls were right on this time.

    Facts are really tough to deal with, huh.

    Either you are saying that 97% of African Americans are fools and are “duped” by Obama or you are totally wrong.

    Now are you calling 97% of African Americans fools because they don’t agree with you? Is that what you are saying?

    Must be tough to disagree with almost everyone in your own group. How does it feel to part of the 3% rejectionists who don’t like Obama?

    Maybe you should preface all your posts with 3%er…

  22. 31

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:

    Dr Correctnotbright this time:

    Atlanta exit polls? That’s where I was. I didn’t say NYC, or Dallas, or Philly, or Miama, or LA, etc. You used general exit polls to comment on my Atlanta comment. You posted a yahoo site and then you only use the first sentence. Why dr. why?

    And regarding facts, it was a known fact blacks were voting for Obama in large numbers. It was HA fools such as yourself who claimed it wasn’t racist.

    Regarding the rest of your post… nuthin much for continual discussion… I am not saying anything at all of what you postulated there. Didn’t say it or thunk it.

    What I did say was once a black person becomes educated on how you, the Donkey, haven’t helped our cause since 1965, they’ll rethink their position.

    So you used “some” of my words, only the part you thought you could use to make an insipid argument against.

  23. 32

    correctnotright spews:

    What I did say was once a black person becomes educated on how you, the Donkey, haven’t helped our cause since 1965, they’ll rethink their position


    So according to you, 97% of African Americans are not “educated” enough because they vote democratic?

    And you are willing to tolerate the racism in the republican party…because…well, because they are republican, of course!

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    The State Pension Fund…Which was UNDERFUNDED by $5.1 BILLION @ 6/30/07 reports they have lost $15.6 BILLION in the last 15 months. They have done actuarial projections based on 8% POSITIVE RETURN.
    The Seattle Times posted this story @ 6:00PM Friday and took it down before Saturday AM…and have made no further mention of it.

    Complete disaster!

  25. 34

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    Puffybutt – went “off the reservation” by sucking so much dick his brain filled with cum.

    Given that the REAL Black population voted for PRESIDENT OBAMA at a rate of more than 9 to 1 – it looks like you find yourself Puffy where you have always been and where you will always be – in the EXTREME minority.

    Your wife says hi.

  26. 35

    Puddybud, Hey it's the New Year... spews:

    Look Correctnotright:

    Apparently you are not a black voting history buff. Puddy will say that many of those 97% are ignorant of black history and have drank the Sharpton/Jackson kool-aid.

    Remember what I posted by Bill Cosby and his comments about them?

    Take me, for example. The value I assign to my stock portfolio is zero, because shares are not money, or even IOUs. The only thing I count is the dividends as they come in. The advantage of this is that my portfolio can’t go down. Under my accounting system, my market loss over the last 2 years is zero, which means I’m doing better than any other investor in the country! …

    What it boils down to is that I own nothing, owe nothing, don’t work …

    That Rabbit diarrhea is Rabbit’s discursive way of saying he’s worthless. Bet being worthless is convenient at tax time, and bet it puts Rabbit in the running for DOC or HHS.

    Daschle, Geithner, Richardson, Rangel, & Dodd. Sort of sounds like Santa’s elves or the captive companions Santa exploits to guide his sleigh at night.

    In fact they’re all crooks and liars and hypocrites. They’re all Donkey Cong Democrats. Forget neocons, ‘Crats. You’ve got cons, cons who want Real Americans to pay and pay but who conveniently fail to pay their fair share. Bet Daschle, Rangel, and the rest use Rabbit’s tax attorney. Hell, maybe Rabbit is their tax attorney, scamming and skimming under the table.

    Scrofula Smegma Scabies & Rabbit, Attorneys at Law spews:

    Dave Ross, Little Big Mouth, says our economic meltdown is the result of Bush Nazis expelling hardworking immigrants from their mortgages. Deporting illegals means we deported our prosperity. Illegal immigrants having mortgaged houses to be deported from means no-doc workers got no-doc loans. That’s why they’re undocumented.

    Ross as usual gave no proof, no evidence, no source for his assertion. As usual, he threw up the assertion and MovedOn.

    So … imquiring minds demand a Puddy Study. How many of our crippling foreclosures were from no-doc no docs, and how many of those illegal alien mortages were issued by Fannie and Freddy, the quasi Big Gov entities praised and pampered by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd?

    HNMT @ 39

    The bad mortgages are only the tip of the iceberg. No way you can sustain an economy when for the last 30 years your wealth base has been steadily sent to low wage domiciles in effect stagnating wages at home and then expecting Americans to buy the produce. It’s worked for a while but it had to stop sometime. A bubble in housing and finance these ugly last 8 years should have been a bigger warning shot to the powers that be. We’ve imported cheap labor to sustain the unsustainable, to provide cheap services and build out the bubble in housing and that’s all been done mostly by the greedy right wing. It’s their dirty not-so-secret.

    And it’s so silly for a right winger to crow about people not keeping up with their taxes. You morons never met a tax you didn’t try to avoid and yes, not pay without whining like stuck pigs.

    Steve spews:

    @43 The comments there are a riot. It’s like the wing-nuts are all losing their minds at once. This one comment I’ll paste below was simple and to the point, whereas most of the others tried to beat around the racist bush. Say, are you the one who left it, Cynical? It seems to be your style:

    I can see why Cynical likes that site. There’s lots of like minded folk over there. And lots of posts all in CAPS. Oh, and plenty of references to a messiah.

    That’s strange shit you’re into, Cynical. Hate black people much?

    48 – Rebalance trade with countries like China that are running large surpluses. If Americans are more productive than Chinese (they are in general because of some technology advantages) then living wage levels can be sustained.

    Much of current American GDP is misallocated being pissed away on inefficient insurance, health care sectors and a bloated military. American development of the suburbs is the worst offender of all. Ugly waste of energy in the form of oil and gas, mispent money that’s sent to Saudi Arabia and other places. These kinds of practices can’t be sustained.

    Yes, Obama’s plans aren’t going far enough to correct these problems, at least right now.

    @51 “Of course you give a pass to”

    When somebody on the left here at HA delves into racist remarks then I’m pretty sure I’ll have something to say about it. I usually don’t read comments on other sites. I’ll say that I certainly don’t appreciate “oreo” being used on this site as it has of late. Criminy, I hadn’t heard that one in decades.

So you’re going to host a “brothers lunch” for Puddy? I’d hope he’d have better sense. Then again, maybe he just wants to meet the dumbest fucking racist troll on the planet.
