I just heard something the commentators said as "Do you think Brady is affected by the majority's giant crab?" I swear, my ears think this is a WAY more exciting (and smutty) game than it actually is.



A significant part of the game, with 4 minutes to go, apparently. You know what, commentator, I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.

WAIT. WAIT. "At the start, Broncowski's hands were on the thighs, but then they just started moving downwards..." COMMENTATORS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING. ARE YOU WRITING SLASHFIC UP THERE. WHAT.

Two minutes left in the second quarter! Running jumping yelling YEAH BOYS LET'S DO THIS QUICKLY SO I CAN GO TO BED AT A REASONABLEISH HOUR whoa what the fuck?? Actual proper grappling brawl?? The commentators insist that the foremost question is 'was that a catch', NO, THE FOREMOST QUESTION IS ARE THEY GOING TO SETTLE THIS WITH PISTOLS OR SWORDS, AND ARE THEY ALLOWED TO NOMINATE A CHAMPION TO FIGHT IN THEIR STEAD.

Oooof sliding face tackle! Lots more running about, there are 28 seconds left, which'd be a lot more exciting if it, you know, WAS.

HOLY FUCK AVENGERS TRAILER NOW **THAT** IS EXCITING. Now this is the pain of British superbowl watching! We don't even get the adverts that you guys do! Every time it cuts to an ad break, it just cuts back to the commentators trying to stuff their unfinished Broncowski slash down the back of their chairs while they respond to twitterers complaining how they have to get up for work in the morning. BUT AVENGERS. AAAHHHHH. I'M GONNA WATCH IT AGAIN.

Pierre-Paul is apparently being awesome, so I'm glad my name-based-fondness for him is not misplaced. I pick weird reasons to focus on people in these kinds of liveblogs - I spent an entire Formula One season's worth of liveblogs going WHO THE FUCK IS GLOCK, only to have my mind blown at the end where he turned out to be PIVOTAL to who finally won in the last moments of the race. It was like the greatest unintentional foreshadowing ever.

Oh! Touchdown. Can they break for the half time show now? Please? Ah, it was Tom Brady's try. I should probably record that for posterity, but the commentators are giving him enough lovin' that I don't really need to go into much more detail.

AND THERE'S STILL EIGHT MORE SECONDS. Oof, full-on tackle! It had rolly-flipping and everything! Making the most of those eight seconds, it would seem.

Ahhh, half time break. Break out the terrine if you've got it!

So Brady has an injured ankle and is 'not himself'. The commentator pines over his well-being and just wishes that he'd let him help him.
I am going to be spending the rest of the game shipping the commentators and Brady.

Which is infinitely more interesting that anything else in this game, so thank you for that.

Also, other than the Avengers, none of the commercials have been that superb, so you haven't been missing much.

(And I'm here via friendsfriends, since no one on my flist has entries up about the game, and my dad is much more interested in the game than I am.)

I basically spend these liveblogs shipping everyone with everyone. I definitely shipping Broncowski/That Dude's Thighs.

Also, hi! Glad to provide you sports liveblogginess, sorry I don't know the rules :)

Your liveblogs are the best thing ever. And personally, I am leaning towards Manning/Brady "why do the commentators love you more than they love me D:" hatesex.

Psh, I don't care about the rules. I care about other people who find the sport as wildly homoerotic as I do. Because it is wildly homoerotic.

Don't mind if I do!

(And it is 'man,' and I am extremely flattered that you got that on first shot.)

Keep at it! Love it.

There are some amazing Cocacola and Doritoes ads that I am sad you can't see.

I lament the lack of adverts. For the lulz, if nothing else.

Tremendous!

Do you know the rules of cricket? If not, I'd love to read your commentary of a Twenty20 game. That's the super-quick (ie: only 2 and a half hours) version of the game. ;)

Let me know when there is one and I'll give it a try :) Also, are you coming to Banquet?

The cricket season kicks off in April, but most matches are only on Sky. I will keep an eye out for a terrestial game!

Sadly, I fear I am likely to miss the Banquet for the first time since my very first one back in '96 due to currently having the workload from Hell with my PGCE (I'll decide sooner to the time).

Indeed I am still up working right now at 2:30 in the bloody morning! Well okay, RIGHT NOW I am being entertained by Part 4 of your LiveJournal Liveblog, but I'll get back to work right after I've finished reading it. Honest.

Procrastination is a vital part of the liveblogs. Hell, I was procrastinating from Latin when I wrote the first one.

Good luck with all the work! Hope to see you there!

Okay, right after I've finished watching the extended Avengers trailer.
