TSTI. Good grief.
Nice intelligent, well thought out, inarguable rebuttal. You've really explained your case well.

Now YOU can't be for real. You didn't find it the least bit coincidental that both performers were indirect victims of gun crimes? That was no accident.
Given the horrific things that the Sandy Hook school kids have been through, I'm not surprised someone wanted to do something nice for them and have them sing at the Super Bowl.

Given Jennifer Hudson's TALENT, I'm not surprised they picked her.

Given how many NFL players have guns (and how some of them used them on others and themselves), I'm not thinking the NFL is anti-gun nor do I believe they want into that fight.

And all black, too, from what I could tell. Guess she isn't one for diversity. I found that to be rather offensive. And she set the woman's movement back 30 years with that performance, way to encourage girls to be sexual objects.
And loved the "anti-gun" theme with the performances by the Sandy Hook children and Jennifer Hudson.
And the commercials were CRAP!
Worst. Superbowl. Ever.
I cannot comment on the color of everyone's skin; we tuned in at the almost-end. But with the color of my kids' skin, that would not have bothered me.

But I will agree with you about sexual objects angle. <sigh>

There are a lot of people with talent, why do you think they chose her to perform alongside the Sandy Hook kids? And given the fact the NFL has seen their own share of gun violence, you really think it was a mere coincidence? Please don't be so dense.

I had one years-long boyfriend before I was with my husband. We had our wedding date picked out and all (though we were still young and it was too far in advance to put deposits on anything). he is a good guy, we were just not right for each other. I still think he's a little crazy and he still thinks that my husband either a) has his life or b) would be his best friend if I would just let them meet.

We can talk now without me feeling any wistfulness or regret. It took years, though.

Did you watch the actual game? The second half (other than the power outage) was really exciting!

You wouldn't know an intelligent rebuttal if it threw a chair at you.

Your comment didn't warrant rebutting.

Well, things are about to really suck for me. Just got the official announcement than my company is being sold. The new owners central office is out West. Many of their job functions are centralized at their HQ. Mine is likely one of those. So it looks like Tonka needs to touch up his 11 year old resume, gussy up his LinkedIn account, and start brushing up on his interview skills.

I didn't watch any of it, but based on what I heard on the radio this morning, the second half of that game was exciting!

Does anyone here use Google Chrome? Because suddenly, my google chrome is giving me repetitive, annoying malware warnings instead of taking me to pages, including this one.

FWIW, I'm told the economy is actually good for job hunters right now. We laid off four engineers two weeks ago and two got jobs immediately, and the other two are interviewing and have had offers.(Not bad for low-performers, eh?)

I thought it was a good game and I really didn't have a horse in the race. I didn't care who won.

The power outage gave me time to do my usual things. Normally when i watch anything on TV I use the commercial time to stick a load of laundry in, do some dishes, or whatever.

As i'm watching the super bowl I didn't know what to do since the commercials are part of the whole experience and you don't want to miss those. I don't have Uverse or DVR so I could pause life TV.

Sorry about that Tonka. That sucks. It's one thing if you get to pick to leave, quite another when they tell you that you have to go.

That stinks, Tonka, sorry. Good luck with the hunt.
