Kansas City Chiefs Win In Super Bowl LV Shutout

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 8, 2021

See how insane that headline is?

The fact of the matter is, that 43-year old quarterback Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl 55 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in Tampa, Florida’s Raymond James Stadium.

And like the 2020 General Election, it too was seen worldwide. There was no “Deflate-Gate,” there were no biased referees, there were no ineligible players on field, there were no players on either side using performance enhancing drugs, and there were no changes to the goal lines, or hash marks.

It was a 100% fair game.

Just like the 2020 November General Election.

Maybe in the interim, before the next season starts, for the benefit of future games, and in order to restore confidence in the game, the Kansas City Chiefs can get some rules changed to help them win next time.

Remember: Denial is not a river in Egypt.


States’ Republicans Weigh New Laws Making It Harder To Vote

After an election that saw record voter turnout, with many of those voters casting their ballots early and by mail, some Republican state lawmakers are proposing a wave of new voting laws that would effectively make it more difficult to vote in future elections.

The proposals come in the aftermath of the unprecedented onslaught of disinformation about the conduct of the 2020 election by former President Donald Trump and some of his allies in the Republican Party.

“Some folks bring these proposals forward and say, ‘Well, we just need to address confidence in our election systems,’ when it’s some of those very same people, or at least their allies and enablers, [who] have denigrated our election system by either telling lies or at least leveraging or relying on other people’s lies to justify some of these policies,” said Steve Simon, Minnesota’s Democratic Secretary of State, at a news conference organized last week by the Voter Protection Program.

A recent analysis by the Brennan Center for Justice found that 106 bills have been filed by Republican lawmakers in 28 states that would restrict voting (the group also found 406 bills in 35 states that would expand voting access). Many of the bills would limit voting by mail, add new voter ID requirements, make it more difficult to register voters and give states greater leeway to purge voter files if voters don’t consistently cast ballots in every election.

“Some of them are for show; some of them have to be taken more seriously,” said Trey Grayson, a former Republican Secretary of State in Kentucky, at the same news conference.

Some of the most sweeping proposals come in Arizona and Georgia, where Read the rest of this entry »

Madonna broke her silence Friday morning on the uproar that followed her Super Bowl XLVI halftime show, which was upstaged when fellow performer M.I.A. appeared to curse and gave the middle finger to the more than 110 million viewers watching.

Madonna said that she only learned of the antics after the fact — and was none too pleased.

“I was really surprised,” she told Ryan Seacrest during a call-in interview to “On Air With Ryan Seacrest.” “I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it. I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, it seemed negative.

She added: “It’s such a Read the rest of this entry »

The BEST Super Bowl 2012 joke!

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 6, 2012

It was already making the rounds after the announcement of the half-time “entertainment” was announced.

The artist formerly known as “Madonna” was scheduled to perform during the 2012 Super Bowl, sometimes also referred to as the XLVI Super Bowl.

I suppose those folks take themselves a bit too seriously, what with the Roman numerals and such. Does anyone recall Read the rest of this entry »
