This Sunday is the Academy Awards of Football and, believe it or not, there are a lot of people who couldn’t care less about this High Holy Day. But if you’re dating a pigskin junkie, you have very little choice: You’re going to be dragged to a get-together where jerseys and body paint are the fashion. Normally, I don’t get wildly excited about football, but this year is a little different for me. I usually just inhale nachos until the Halftime Show, then return to carbo-grazing. Occasionally, I’ll look at the score, or ask if anything is broken.
But for those women (and men) who dread an entire day dedicated to cheering human freight trucks slathered in spandex, please consider that Super Bowl Sunday is a day when you are allowed to eat with your fingers, wear fat pants out, and not actually have to talk to anyone. Just grunt. These are positives. Just show up and do your best dinosaur impersonation. Keep reading »
Super Bowl Sunday is nine days away, and we’ve already told you about the anti-abortion Focus on the Family ad
you can expect to see if you tune in, rather than heading to Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl. But what about the ads you won’t see? A gay dating site called ManCrunch.com wanted to air the commercial above during the football megacast, but was told by CBS that space is full. “It’s clearly a form of discrimination that we’re getting the runaround, that we’re not being told the truth,” he said. “Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available.” CBS also allegedly flat-out nixed an ad from a site called GoDaddy.com.

You’ve probably heard by now that Tim Tebow, a former quarterback for the University of Florida and a vocal Christian, will be starring in an anti-abortion advertisement with his mother, Pam Tebow, during the Super Bowl. The Tebows’ 30-second spot was paid for by a conservative Christian organization called Focus on the Family and tells the story of how, in 1987, Pam had been advised by doctors to have an abortion because of medical complications in her pregnancy. Pam refused, and later gave birth to Tim, who went on to win the Heisman Trophy (and, admittedly, looked sort of hot in a jock-ish way). Unsurprisingly, women’s organizations have joined together asking CBS not to run Focus on the Family’s commercial.

Everyone is still talking about the porno incident during Sunday’s Super Bowl game. The initial reaction was shock. How did a pornographic movie pop up during the biggest game of the year? Now the reaction has shifted to curiosity. Just who are the two actors in the 30-sec porn clip? Tristan Kingsley and Evan Stone. After Tristan pulled Evan’s penis out of his pants right after the Arizona Cardinals scored a touchdown, she blogged … Keep reading »
Comcast Cable customers in Tuscon, Arizona got to watch more than the Pittsburgh Steelers winning yesterday’s game. Right after the Arizona Cardinals took the lead in the 4th quarter, the game action was replaced by a clip from a porn for 10 seconds and showed a woman pulling a man’s penis out of his pants. Comcast is doing a full investigation to figure out how this happened, but I think I have a list of possible suspects. After the jump, the five possible culprits behind the porn prank… Keep reading »

But thanks to recipes from Wolfgang Puck and other star chefs, you can add a touch of gourmet to your “Game Day” staples… Keep reading »
New Yorker Amy Borkowsky is trying to raise $3 million so she can buy a 30-second ad during this year’s Super Bowl, which she will use to try to find a husband. “Dating is a numbers game,” she said. “I need to reach a large pool of guys.” So far she has only raised $1,121, and a spokesperson for NBC said there are fewer than eight ad spots left for the Feb. 1 game. If Borkowsky does raise the money, do you think this is a genius idea, or has the woman lost her mind? Check her fundraising progress at SuperBowlSingleGirl.com. Keep reading »
