Poll: Howsabout that game, eh?
  • 51.7% - It was thrilling! 922
  • 12.6% - It was boring. 225
  • 35.7% - I didn’t even watch, because I like to feel superior to people who enjoy things I don’t. 636

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Insert "I didn't watch because I didn't care about the teams" to the poll please.

I didn't watch. But I just heard the power went out in the stadium for 35 minutes during the 3rd quarter? Now I want to watch it just to see how that went...

THIS. I'm surprised Puppy Bowl IX wasn't included in the poll.

I think you mean "would HAVE"....

Anyway, yeah, that 5 minutes of stadium roof, without any commentary was odd, and the extra hour annoying. I guess NOLA wanted to give the fans a taste of the old Dome though. ;-P

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

I want an option:
I flicked back and forth until Downton Abbey came on and then rejoined for the 4th quarter. Never watch more than the 4th quarter.

More like "Why watch it when I can go play it?"

Never enjoyed watching Sports, playing them is only time it's fun.

It may have changed the game. It sucks that they didn't call it. But I don't think the Niners got robbed, either. I think it was a good game and I'm bummed my team lost.

It was HILARIOUS.

:D


Especially watching the one guy fake-punched the camera with his helmet. Oh, and when the commentary went DEAD SILENT while the lights went out. I can only imagining the scurrying and "WHAT THE?!" comments going on while everyone's mic was on mute.

Hey, favorite commercial? Mine was the double-dip at "Sports Luck" by Budweiser and the hidden room of Bad Juju. :D

You should. They cut to commercial twice, and ran out of commercials for the end of the game. They even replayed one of the more boring commericals during that timeframe.

The Ravens kept stretching to keep limber (they never showed any of the 49'ers stretching, I guess the cameramen had kind of "called it" at that point anyway), and there was some random outrage by the players while the lights went out.

The commentary folks came back after the commercial break to let us know that they had no clue why the lights went out and vamped/preened about their team for about four or five minutes. (j/k, I'm sure it was vaguely entertaining to those who took a side, and I didn't mind one way or another.)


The game got underway, the 49'ers came from behind, so it was definitely something that could've played to their advantage. I can imagine how ruffled the Ravens were.

THEY NEEDED TO SHOW MORE TOUCHDOWN DANCES. The one after the world record-breaking play was fun. Actually, I think they should put together a montage of them just in case a serious delay like this happens again.

Did anyone else get tired of Shannon Sharpe's never-ending babble during the power outage?

My gosh, how ridiculous and unreasonable for there to be no sound coming from the commentators when the stadium lost half of its power! Clearly they shoulda had something to say!


RIGHT, EVERYBODY?!

gotta fill the silence with noise.
that's, you know, a major facet of his job.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

I wanted some 1920's style radio commentary from them describing what was happening exactly at that second, but had to settle for the brief freakout clips that followed. Which were pretty funny anyway.

I watched 3 hours of commercials... I just hated that they added football as filler.. on the bright side, I did use that time wisely, such as refreshing our cocktails and getting snacks.. Oh Budweiser, you never fail to bring a tear each year with the clydesdales

We cut away because Downton Abbey came on.
We have our priorities in place, after all.
