Today, I wear red

Today, I wear red.

The Big Game.
The One.
The Decider.

I don’t much care
which way it goes.
I only hope for a good one.

My gut says
it’ll be over by halftime
the Cardinals down by double digits
and in hopelessly over their heads.
But that’s just the Philly in me
expecting
nothing but the worst
and being pleasantly surprised
by anything approaching mediocrity.

I may end up crying
in my beer
with the rest of the soccer moms
but at least I’ll look good
doing it.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. on another note…has anyone seen this bullshit yet? http://www.dabagirls.com/

    These are probably partially the reason why so much money is gone. With the whole…”well so and so’s wife got a rock that big…honey buy me some bling”

  2. Good call, jonny. You’re a regular fucking The Amazing Kreskin. Still, we worked for it. But that’s the Pittsburgh way.

  3. I don’t know about that Gnome – sure the Cardinals lost, but if Big Jonny only wanted a good game, he sure got one. I’m not a huge football fan, but even I enjoyed this game. I couldn’t give a shit about either team, but it was still fun to watch. (I did drink a six pack while I watched, which probably helped enhance the experience…) I can’t imagine BJ was too disappointed in the game.

  4. …you sure as hell can’t feel too bad wearing red today…disappointed, ya but damn, the redbirds made it interesting…

    …i had no personal allegiances in the scrum so i was cheering ‘the underdog’ & they played them some football…

    …i’m feeling the deflation which says something in a superbowl…

  5. Game was great. Better than I ever could have hoped. Awesome. Went right down to the closing minutes. And the Cards covered the spread!

  6. 2 Questions: Why in the fuck do you take the D when you win the toss? YOur best team is your Offfence. You need the ball as many times as you can get it. The result. Stealers opening drive took like 10 min off the clock

    And Even Madden in Madden 09 rreminds us to run the ball with the score close with less than 20 seconds on the clock in the red zone before the half. “You can’t afford a mistake here, run the ball in or take the 3 and the momentum into the lockerroom.”

    Good 4th quarter.

    Steelers made the plays when they had too

    damn BJ did you see your safety and corners bite on the 2 clutch pump fakes Big Ben pulled in the last drive. I mean the whole team bit on it and it was over

  7. yeah and that “steel toed catch” was insane.

    how ’bout Larry Fitzgerald screaming “No” over and over?

    man, shit was good!

  8. it was good

    Warners wife was looking fine too with those steel titties. I think she got her Christian tits belssed since the Rams

    and yes I know how to spell steel. i think

  9. One takes the D on the first half so it can have the O on the second half. It’s a type of strategery that concerns itself with an assumption that one will be down by the half, and need some O by then.

  10. deferring to the second half when you win the toss first gives you a chance for 2 back to back offensive possessions with out turnover to the other team. Assuming you have the final possession of the first half
