The Bears' drive

Tony Kornheiser

Didn't we all think that Chicago would try to run the ball early? Do you think they have a different gameplan for leads and tie scores? Because I think they should be running the ball, killing the clock and keeping the ball away from Manning.
Karril is crocheting. This is how the wife of someone who does "MNF" for a living pays attention to the Super Bowl. She is crocheting. [Cindy: She can crochet a new MasterCard."] She pointed out that I was screaming during the kickoff return. What the )()*^*&%^%$# does she think I do for a living?
Sierra Mist combover commercial was terrible. I never want t see it again. Salesgenie was terrible. Here's the second Sierra Mist commercial and it's worse! I will never buy it! That's how bad these commercials have been. They have lost me as a customer.

Maybe Christie Brinkley is the most annoying person on the planet. Or maybe...nah, Billy Joel's a fool.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:22 PM

My God, this Norbit movie looks awful. Of course this is a fantasy. People can't really drive on buildings. How stupid do you have to be to think that???

Posted by: Tony | February 4, 2007 06:22 PM

Tony, have you ever considered that Christie Brinkley is insane? She just got divorce #3 recently.

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 06:22 PM

I hope they have a new trailer for the upcoming Transformers movie.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 06:24 PM

Don't know how to handle TK being here after Billy Joel... I'm used to going into a depressive binge...

Dap to MArlee Matlin too for the hard of hearing, loved her on TWW

Posted by: Stink | February 4, 2007 06:24 PM

His Christie period marked the beginning of his musical downtown. The man conquered the 70s and then she sucked the life out of his music.

Posted by: Rob in Arlington | February 4, 2007 06:25 PM

I'm hoping for a trailer for "The Simpsons Movie."

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:25 PM

ok is the ford truck the first commercial or is it after the kickoff. I always get confused

Posted by: kitty | February 4, 2007 06:25 PM

Heh heh - they call the truck Super Doody.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:26 PM

And with the coin toss, the first $100,000 was lost or won on this game.

Posted by: Joel K | February 4, 2007 06:26 PM

Hey Cindy, what happened to the Billy Joel post?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:26 PM

dome sweet dome, NOT!!!

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 06:26 PM

Kitty, normally after kickoff. But I think we're even seeing super-bowl-ad creep now, with everythign started a little earlier each year.

Posted by: BlackacesKi | February 4, 2007 06:26 PM

Why is Tony K bagging on Dan Marino? Did Tony K even PLAY a sport???

Posted by: Anon | February 4, 2007 06:27 PM

I think Marino's presence is purposeful to remind us of Peyton's future legacy if he doesn't win tonight. No pressure Peyton.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:27 PM

All right, kickoff! It's about time.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:27 PM

Mr.Tony, I would like to answer the Dan Marino question...that would be NONE, ZERO NATA.

and the colts special team is going to kill them today!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:28 PM

Wow, that was quick.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:28 PM

Unflippin' believable!!!!

Posted by: Lisa | February 4, 2007 06:28 PM

WOW that was a great return.

Posted by: jm220 | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

That is how you start a Super Bowl... Devin Hester is the man.

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

Let's see how Peyton reacts in his first drive.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

Blackaces: is that like how the 2008 electoral race is starting now or like how they christmas decorations go up at halloween?

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

Haha...How's that flight Wilbon?

Posted by: Joel K | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

Indy special teams playing like super doody.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:29 PM

So much for those Colts special teams.

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 06:30 PM

Cindy, WHAT ARE YOU DOING to Tony's old posts???

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:31 PM

Kitty, exactly. Kinda like christmas lights!

Devin Hester wow! Chicago is still standing, btw. No riots yet.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 06:31 PM

All I can think of is "I've seen this movie before."

Then again, I'm an Ohio State fan.

Posted by: Dr Chuck Pearson | February 4, 2007 06:31 PM

would like to give some dap to cbs team intro graphics...pretty cool how they spin in.

wilbon causing a commotion on plane trying to get it to fly faster!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:32 PM

Tony- knockout blow??! did you watch their game against the Pats?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:32 PM

The blog seems to be having issues, maybe it is shocked by that run back.

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 06:33 PM

Colts looking kinda shaky out of the gate.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:34 PM

OK, who else saw this INT coming?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:34 PM

Marino is there because this is in MIAMI, and he's still a pretty big hero there, despite going 0-1 in Super Bowl games himself.

What on earth happened to Mr. Tony's hilarious comments re: Billy Joel? They echoed my own, and I'm surprised to now see that they're gone :-(

Wild kickoff return - no comments by the TV folks as to whether or not that has ever happened before in the SB? I don't think that it ever has.

Posted by: Crash | February 4, 2007 06:35 PM

Bud Light RPS!!! Genius!!1

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:35 PM

Well, Tony, what do the Colts do now that they haven't gotten those first downs?

Bud Light commercial - bad
Doritos commericial - worse

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 06:35 PM

Blockbuster!!! Genius. 2 great ones in a row and a shout out to James Woods as the voice of the rabbit!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:36 PM

Mr. Tony, you did not like the mouse one cause you don't like anything technical computer wise. It was funny.

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:38 PM

Agree with Kitty on the Blockbuster "mouse" commercial!

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 06:38 PM

Maybe someone should post Tony's entries as a blog comment until they figure out that something's wrong with the blog.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:38 PM

I had no idea what the bunny was doing in the Blockbuster commercial at first until they panned down to the mouse.

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 06:38 PM

thought they were giving the mouse some weird kind of Heimlich Maneuver (sp?)

Should have picked that off.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:38 PM

first thing the beard comb-over made me think of: The Donald

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:40 PM

Hey Tony, have you ever thought about trying that Beard-Combover thing???

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 06:40 PM

Tony! You gotta get the beard comb over going!

Posted by: Erin | February 4, 2007 06:40 PM

someone please stop the sierra mist commercials!!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:41 PM

Ok, so when do we see the combo monkeys-in-the-office/Cialis bathtub commercial?!?!

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 06:43 PM

the sierra mist commercial truly sucked

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 06:44 PM

to Blackaces: if we see that combo it will be the end of civilization as we know or at the very least I will be having nightmares for a month.

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:44 PM

Sorry -- we're straightened out now!
These commercials stink.

Posted by: Cindy | February 4, 2007 06:44 PM

To Cindy, the proper typing would be: these commercials stink (stink)!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:45 PM

Looks like it's raining pretty hard. How would you like to have paid for $5000 worth of tickets and stand in the rain for 4 hours?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:45 PM

Kitty-

Never underestimate the depths to which ad agencies will go to sell us something. I mean, look at dopey Sierra Mist!

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 06:46 PM

let's see:

superbowl tickets $5000
snacks, rain hat,etc. $500
your team winning the superbowl Priceless

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 06:47 PM

It's raining hard....even though the Colts just scored...the Bears win this game.

Posted by: Lisa | February 4, 2007 06:47 PM

Those Sieera Mist commercials are devastating.

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 06:47 PM

what's sad about the SM ads is how funny Jim Gaffigan actually is.... wasted in these ads...


NIce TD Wayne!!! bad snap for the XP

Posted by: Stink | February 4, 2007 06:47 PM

Blockbuster "mouse" - cute, but would have been much funnier 10 years ago.

If that Mist stuff is as bad as their new commercials - ouch!

Hi RI Gang. Hi CB. (Is Tony asleep already???)

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | February 4, 2007 06:47 PM

Wow -- so much for Hester's "knockout blow."

Looks like another bad PAT snap!

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 06:48 PM

Whoa... I would've found Reggie Wayne when he's that open.

And look, a missed extra point. That annoyed a few gamblers.

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 06:48 PM

How on earth did Peyton throw that accurately? Remarkable.

Snap follies continue - can we please use a non-laminated ball for kicks?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 06:48 PM

The NFL needs to stop using these shiny new footballs, and use broken-in ones, like in baseball.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 06:50 PM

ball slipped in the rain eh? But Miami is better than a dome in the North?

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 06:50 PM

truck ad - straight forward

space office - pretty cool, comet the clincher!!!

Bud light auction marraige - GREAT!!!!!!

Posted by: Stink | February 4, 2007 06:51 PM

All that complaining about how Houston, J-Ville and Detroit weren't good cities to have Super Bowls in because of the weather, then this happens. I love it.

Posted by: ep | February 4, 2007 06:51 PM


sloppiest. game. ever.

Posted by: anonymous | February 4, 2007 06:53 PM

Hey, I'm crocheting and watching every play of the game, every nuance, every change. Unlike knitters, WE ROCK!!!

Posted by: | February 4, 2007 06:56 PM

There's better execution over on Puppy Bowl.
