There Was A Superbowl
And, as usual, it didn’t involve the Minnesota Vikings. Sigh.
But there was a game and it was very entertaining. And the right team won. Sure, their fan base may have a higher percentage of assholes than most other fan bases, but let’s not hold that against the team. Philadelphians now know something Minnesotans will never know:
What it’s like to have a Superbowl champion team.
A Few Observations About The Halftime Show
Jason Timberlodge was OK. He lip-synced well, despite the audio problems for the first half of the performance. He strutted well and had a few good dance moves. His tribute to Prince and Minneapolis lighting up purple was a nice touch.
And there was no wardrobe malfunction. Unless you count the droopy drawers he wore.
Speaking Of Wardrobe Malfunctions
And I did speak of the infamous wardrobe malfunction. I connected it to Pres. Trump calling some African nations shitholes. I was trying to demonstrate how people on either side of the political/social spectrum react to controversies and how they tend to dismiss the other side’s reaction.
During this segment I mentioned the funny supercut video of CNN folks saying “shithole.” I find it absurdly humorous.
Pedantic Moments: Fargo Series And A Pro Choice Post On Facebook
I did two this week, because I wanted to.
First up was from the television series Fargo season three. Early in that season’s first episode there’s a scene in a Mom & Pop grocery store. Behind the checkout counter can be seen several bottles of liquor for sale. Oh, gosh, no. Not in Minnie-sOH-ta. Doncha know.
The other had to do with this image posted to Facebook:
Oh, boy. Abortion. Yikes.
Yep, I went into that topic. Well, not deeply. I talked a bit on each of the arguments for abortion with my pedantry focusing on #5. Everything? Think about it.
Top Three Cool Things Of The Week

Movie Recommendation: The Hammer (2007)
Adam Carolla stars and co-wrote this very funny and surprisingly romantic film about a 40 something underachiever getting a chance in the boxing world. It’s funny and very entertaining with a cameo appearance by Jane Lynch. You can’t go wrong with Jane Lynch.
