Thursday Night Football

Posted by joy

Well, it’s the season opener and the Steelers are playing the Dolphins. The pre-game, quite frankly, was boring and there’s been a number of video glitches. (Good job NBC.) The commercials are not all that impressive. The pre-game fireworks on top of the buildings and seeing Jerome Bettis was cool though.

I have to note that I’m a little chagrined that Hines Ward is playing tonight despite an earlier hamstring injury. I didn’t start him. My apartment neighbors just heard how chagrined I really am.

However, the Daunte Culpepper and the Dolphins already have the ball again after Charlie Batch couldn’t connect, so perhaps my gamble will pay off.

Update 1: They played an Apple commercial! See, Apple and football *can* go together. ;-)

Update 2: Hines Ward just got a touchdown. [censored] 6pts that I don’t have. Now, 10 pts.

Update 3: Hines Ward isn’t doing all that well.

Update 4: Another Apple commercial!

Update 5: What *was* that flag toss????

    I predict a 7-9 record. Too bad, I really hate that the 49ers have 5 rings too.

    Great, a flag toss that none of the refs see and then, two passes by Daunte that Porter and Polamalu (sp?) clearly see from the get-go… of course, none of that matters if the Dolphins don’t let the freaking tight-end bust one for 80-somethin yards right before.

    Meh. There’s always next week, I suppose.

    On another note, did you see Porter give Cowher a peck on the neck? That was funny.

    I would like to know who the musician is that is playing in the Thursday Night Football commercial.

    Thanks :-)
