It’s a good thing the Ravens won because, had they lost, I’m pretty sure John Harbaugh would have killed that guy in the suit who, ostensibly, was to blame for the power outage. That, or Harbaugh would have had Ray Lewis stab him in the dark.
Is anyone else really glad that it’s over? That we don’t have to see Ray Lewis moan and cry and praise God and all that shit? Like, there’s a high-probability that he killed two men, and was using a banned substance to play in the Super Bowl. Him, that goofy thing on his arm and his Shredder mask can all go fuck themselves.
Let’s hit it.

- Allen Iverson, not a good daddy. Here’s what a judge had to say about his parenting skills: [TMZ]
"[Iverson] does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development.
For example, he has refused to attend to an obvious and serious alcohol problem, which has caused him to do inappropriate things in the presence of the children while impaired.
He has left the children alone without supervision. He has left his young daughters in a hotel room with men who are unknown to the mother."
- Hey, Phil Sheridan is already getting on Chip Kelly’s big balls: [Philly.com]
But since his initial and largely positive first impression, Kelly has pretty much vanished. He emerged, groundhog-like, for one early morning appearance at a radio event Friday, but otherwise he has been working (we hope) on the answers to the next round of questions.
It isn't clear why Kelly declined to announce his hires as he made them. He succeeded mostly in annoying fans eager to understand his vision while forcing grown men in Eagles gear to spend weeks pretending they don't work for the Eagles, at least in public.
- Philly.com is testing out a new service (they love trying hokey web things), called Slidermetrix, which allows you to rate Super Bowl commercials in real-time. Sort of like what CNN does during presidential debates, a slider allows you to continuously give feedback on commercials. Gimmicky, but pretty cool.
- Jason Kelce wouldn’t even mind if she had an STD (though he might want to talk to LeSean McCoy about this):
- Interesting article on how CBS handled the power outage. Will Leitch skewers job they did. The Atlantic gives in-depth details on why it happened.
- Apparently, there a fight at Xfinity Live! last night. Here’s a pic from anonymous tipster and an unrelated Tweet. Were you there? Have more information? Let us know.
- At $10, the Sixers can’t even interest a group of Gwynedd-Mercy College students:
- Here’s DeSean Jackson with Snoop Dogg:
- Finally, you’ll notice that we’ve added a login requirement to comment. It’s very simple– either use Facebook, Twitter or Typepad (our host) to quickly login before commenting. Some of you already do this. The reason is not necessarily to censor the comments, but to stop incessant trolling and comment hijacking from jackasses who have exactly nothing interesting, insightful or funny to add. You’re still welcome to write whatever you want… but now a name, handle or email will be tied to your comment.
