Peyton Manning is a good guy:

It was then that Manning, walking down a hallway back toward the locker room, still surrounded by cops, still followed by a guy dragging his bag, still trying to just find some peace and quiet and to the mourning process that comes from losing the big game in a big way.

It was then that Peyton Manning heard the very respectful voice of Steve Lopez, a beer vendor from the Bronx.

“Mr. Manning, could I please get an autograph?” the 25-year-old asked.

Manning’s head turned and looked Lopez in the eye. These were the opposite ends of the NFL food chain – megastar multimillionaire and a guy hawking Bud Lights in the stands. The wave of the crowd was pushing Manning forward, but he locked in on Lopez.

“Not now,” Manning said, “but when I come back this way I will.”

And he did.

Andrew Bynum signs with Pacers.

Top 5 funniest Phillip Seymour Hoffman roles. Everyone waxes poetic about people when they die, but PSH was truly an outstanding actor. One of the best on Earth. Tough loss. One person had him in the Celebrity Death Pool: Brandon S. That’s 54 points, sadly.

Indiana bars busted for gambling during Super Bowl. $93,000 grabbed.



In the last episode of Crossing Streams we were joined by Matt Stairs(!), who shared anecdotes about the 2008 Phillies, talked about why Pat Burrell was such a great leader, ripped A-Rod, and much more. Listen or downloadSubscribe with iTunesGrab the RSS feed.

  1. Worst Super Bowl ever. Game sucked, commercials sucked, anthem sucked.

    Enjoyed the halftime show though.

  2. Lousy game and if the game is lousy the whole thing is lousy in my opinion. I never watch halftime, don’t care about commercials, but the National Anthem was actually sung correctly for once instead of the latest pop singer disaster jazzing it up. However, I just watch for a good game and this was plain awful as lopsided games always are. I thought maybe Peyton and Eli had switched bodies for awhile; Peyton looked like a frightened backup who was thrown in the game at the last minute. Really pathetic. Seattle is a great team, however I can’t stand them. Just don’t like them and the attitude. But the best team definitely won.

  3. Nothing about the 9/11 truther that hijacked the press conference? Or did I miss that? Guy didnt hve a ticket and still got into the superbowl. Pretty big story

    1. That was great. Malcolm Smith had the same look on his face as Mike Myers during the Katrina fundraiser.

      1. 9/11 Truthers are almost as bad as holocaust deniers. Good to see you lauding that scumbag, Kyle.

  4. Well, Eskin and Namath both look like egocentric douche nozzles in those coats. I can smell the flexall 454 in the air….

    This was one of the worst super bowls ever.

    Mamma is out.

    1. Namath at least was somebody at one time and is still a big name. Eskin is cringeworthy since he is basically a nobody who thinks he is somebody. Looks like his grandmother’s coat!

  5. Loved every minute of the Broncos getting their teeth kicked in by the Seahawks and btw can we finally put to rest the idiotic ignorant borderline racist statement that you can’t win a Super Bowl with a mobile QB.

    1. With a defense like that, it didn’t matter who the QB was.

      So anyone who likes a conventional drop back quarterback, who runs an offense efficiently, is an accurate passer, and can read a defense is a racist now? Oh ok, thanks for clearing that up.

  6. If you want to order a shirt and get it in time for the Olympics, better order it last week. I ordered a shirt Wednesday, Jan. 29, and it just shipped today, Feb. 3.
    Are you fucking kidding me?

  7. just dropped a wicked smash, had fake sausage and meatballs, massimo and lil ant got meager leftovers, getting ready do do my show, ok what was your favorite commercial? i will rip a couple in robs face

  8. get ready eagles fans we will be playing in that opening thursday night game in seattle. i have a feeling

  9. It was amazing how Peyton and Denver’s power packed offense was destroyed by The Legion of Boom. Kinda like watching a slow motion train wreck. Meanwhile, I got a few laughs out of the Audi “Doberhuahua” spot.

  10. as eagles fans, we’ll take a super bowl win any way we can get it. still, with the game being over at halftime, it had be a bit anti-climatic for seahawks fans when the clock hit zeroes. the game had been so long over with at that point that the seahawks merely walked on the field when it ended and their celebration seemed a bit subdued. the adverse side effect of whooping the other team’s ass.

  11. The only thing worse this weekend was Beasley Reese’s version of the national anthem. He should have been arrested. Also, did anybody Jillian Mele’s rack this morning on the news. Looking hot.

    1. Morganti and Cataldi were raving over Beasley Reese’s performance this morning; I did not hear it. Having these two fawn over something is a sure sign it stinks!

  12. “Apple 30 Years of Mac tribute shot entirely with iPhones.”

    What does this have to do with sports? Unless you think Mac fanboys jerking each other off is a sport…
