‘In my humble opinion’ by R.T. Fitch
First time in recent memory; the horses give the Stupid Bowl the cold shoulder
I don’t watch the game; (just a bunch of bulked-up, overpaid males running around a field playing with their balls) but I always look forward to previewing the commercials that are played during the event and of course, the tales told by the Clydesdale’s mini-movies are always the favorite.
Be they patriotic, remember the 911 one, or about being more than you thought you could be; they almost always bring a tear to your eye…but not in this year of gross disrespect and inflated egos, no ponies.
I am not sure why they will not be there, but one thing is for certain; there will be a lot fewer people watching this event than there have been in the past.
This year’s NFL ratings have been abysmal while those who make 30 times the wages of their fans disrespect the flag that many of us served under and know patriots who have died for it, full stop. (I tried not to comment on this over the past year but it has just got a tad out of hand)
But, good ole Budweiser has posted an internet commercial, below, and after viewing it I am acutely aware that it would offend the NFL and its crybaby management as it shows a flag (oh no) being raised and uses the word, ‘Country’.
“We can’t have that, it is too controversial just like the AMVET ad that showed an American Flag and said, ‘Let’s Stand’, damn those trouble makers.
See for yourself:
Ohhhhhh, all that subtle patriotism might just scare the jock strap right off from one of those sniveling little sissies on the sidelines…BOO!
In memory of years gone by let’s wash our minds out and take a little tour of what the horses DID tell us in their novellas sponsored by adult beverages. Join us at the end of the ride for some pretty cool viewing alternatives to the numb-skull head bashing of American Football.
2009 (bonus: there were two this year!)
2011 wasn’t very Clydesdale-y, so we skipped it… moving on to 2012:
Now the annual advent of the “Stupid” Bowl is just that for Terry, her parents and myself as it is our excuse to get silly, wicked “Stupid” and spend the afternoon/evening laughing our collective asses off watching:
Pick your favorite, furry flavor (or watch both at the same time like we do) and have the very greatest of times. No politics, no statements, no stupidity; just maybe a little tinkle here and a little poopy there but even when that occurs with a little one its funny.
So you can still have a good time with the critters while grown men try to give each other permanent brain damage and call it a game.
Enjoy and have fun!!!
