Get a Grip

Tony Kornheiser

How weird is this??? Nobody can hold onto the football. Everytime someone starts to run, the ball pops out. And now the Colts to score. They don't have to have a TD, but they need something because the Bears always get something out of a turnover.

TK... um, it's getting kind of hard to keep up with you, sahib.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:07 PM

I'll post here then. This is a great first quarter, by the way. A spectacular first quarter.

Posted by: Tony | February 4, 2007 07:08 PM

Tony, it's because of those new footballs they're forced to use in the Super Bowl.

In a typical NFL game, they only go thru about 24 footballs. But in the Super Bowl, it's upwards of 140. And every ball is shiny and new, not broken in. I don't understand it. Why not use ones the players can handle?

gotta give me Vin a chance, don't ya? well, heck of a punt

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:08 PM

Yeah -- Cindy, slow Mr. Tony down a bit!

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:09 PM

didn't mean to whine before. It's just a trick to juggle great game, great ads, and great blog...

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:09 PM

Looks like Ced got his bell rung. What a hit that was.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:10 PM

But what a freakin' treat it is to have Mr. Tony blogging here!

When Wilbon shows up my head may explode! (And I'm sure Cindy feels the same way)

This kicks ass.

Why do refs have numbers on their backs? Who's looking up the refs in their programs?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:10 PM

Best ad of the game so far, I think you're right, was Dave/Oprah.

Those Sierra Mist ads were just terrible. Whoever thought those ads up deserves birdflu.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 07:10 PM

Don't worry the bottle of red will soon take effect and Mr. Tony will be fast asleep.

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 07:10 PM

I don't like allowing the kicking team to stop the punt or fair catches. Return the freakin' ball all the time!

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 07:10 PM

Hmmmm....I thought I heard some wiseman once pontificate about how "tacky" the football got when it was wet. How come CBS can't get a color guy with that kind of knowledge.

Posted by: Joel K | February 4, 2007 07:11 PM

If this happened in one of our games, where a guy is lying on the ground injured, I just look at Joe and hope he talks because I have nothing to say. If the injury lasts a really long time, I hope they go to "SportsCenter."

Posted by: Tony | February 4, 2007 07:11 PM

The Beckham cameo was so subtle it was awesome. But Oprah and Dave, that was the best.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:11 PM

I was paying attention to this blog and not Dave and Oprah. What did they say?

Posted by: saywhat?? | February 4, 2007 07:12 PM

so far my list:

1. Oprah/David
2. Blockbuster
3. Bud light RPS
thats it, thats the list

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:12 PM

Tony, out here in Portland, OR, pitcher of a local brew called Hammerhead. Raising a toast in your honor, sirrah.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:13 PM

Here's an interesting punt coming up to finish off a boffo first quarter.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:13 PM

Tony, you weren't going too fast! Post on the main page again!

Posted by: ks | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

Colts waste field position like this.

Ooh look - c-level stars sitting in the rain. High five.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

OMG the first CBS new show shill..and are they really sitting in the rain. how bad was that

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

What's the over/under for cancellation for Rules of Engagement? 5 weeks?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

yea, the blockbuster and bud light ads were funny too. Dorito's ad wasn't bad either. I'm missing another one.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

Wilbon just walked in the door of his house. Stay tuned.

Posted by: Cindy | February 4, 2007 07:14 PM

Cindy,

One new starting post per quarter might work well.

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | February 4, 2007 07:15 PM

Finally - GO DADDY!! What took so long?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:15 PM

Ocho-Ocho! Love ya, buddy.

Whatever this Hammerhead stuff is, it's kicking my arse.

I saw this Pepsi ad in a theater during "the Twenty". It's, um, okay I guess.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:16 PM

Yeah Boyz!!! Wilbon in the house! I guess he was good on the flight.

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:16 PM

Godaddy usually has naked chicks. I don't really get godaddy, but I'm always expecting half-naked chicks and I'm never disappointed. I would never purchase godaddy, but I like their ads.
Coke: I don't like animated ads, so it doesn't matter if it's good or not. It's creepy to me. Very creepy. It's exceedingly creepy.

Posted by: Cindy | February 4, 2007 07:17 PM

Wilbon has been spending so much time in Cleveland you would think that he would get a house there.

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 07:17 PM

y'all are crazy, the posts are great to read

Posted by: ks | February 4, 2007 07:17 PM

Wait, did they just advertise CSI as TV's most watched show? On which planet? The one without American Idol?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:18 PM

Hey Nate!

Hammerhead??? Sounds painful.

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | February 4, 2007 07:18 PM

The posts are awesome! Cindy, sorry for complaining up above, I'm just having trouble keeping up. I am drinking.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:18 PM

Ok, that coke/video game ad was fantastic. I doubt most people know that the game that commercial is based on is so ultra-violent, so it was funny to see the main character doing random acts of kindness in Vice City.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 07:19 PM

"both coaches are like, come on" That's what I call analysis.

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:19 PM

This does not look good for the Bears...

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:19 PM

My cousin's child and his girlfriend have come over. They've just moved to D.C. I'm going to open a bottle of wine. I'll be right back.

Posted by: Tony | February 4, 2007 07:19 PM

Do you enjoy talking to Mike and Tony as much as we like to listen to them?

Posted by: Chris Gaithersburg Md | February 4, 2007 07:19 PM

Cindy,

Maybe Coke and the BK King can do an ad together - LMAO!

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | February 4, 2007 07:20 PM

Cindy, you seem to have a major adversion to Caricatures and Animated Characters. Why is that? Did Bugs Bunny traumatize you as a child?

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 07:21 PM

Colts survived the return TD, the incredibly bad start, the exchange of turnovers... this is bad for the Bears. The Bears should have put their proverbial 'foot on they neck' when they had a chance.

Hammerhead!

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 07:21 PM

I would think Mr.Tony would have "people" to open wine, fetch snacks etc.

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:21 PM

Tony get the bottle of JW Blue......

Posted by: Chris Gaithersburg Md | February 4, 2007 07:21 PM

All right Knuckleheads, we need Wilbon!!

Looks like Peyton finding some rhythm. But here comes "money"!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:22 PM

i agree with cindy - animated comercials dont much for me

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 07:23 PM

Thought the Coke ad had a good message - I just need to get over the video game quality of the thing.

Bud needs to go back to the horses - forget the dogs.

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 07:24 PM

Mapasaurus rules!!

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:24 PM

Garmin ad blew.

Posted by: Nigel | February 4, 2007 07:24 PM

garmin map man commercial just cheesy enough to be good

Posted by: | February 4, 2007 07:25 PM

The Budweiser Dalmatian ad was cheesy, but people will like it. The Garmin commercial was comedically bad. Just laughable.

Posted by: Bill Lehecka | February 4, 2007 07:25 PM

Wow, the Pro Bowl is back on network TV?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 07:25 PM

I agree with Jerry, where is the Clydesdale's football extravaganza!!

Posted by: Kitty | February 4, 2007 07:25 PM

Where can i get a Mapasaurus action figure?

Posted by: Chopped Liver | February 4, 2007 07:26 PM

Sorry, guys. We're making this up as we go along. We'll do quarterly entries and post as we go. Move over now.

Posted by: Cindy | February 4, 2007 07:26 PM

Like the Garmin ad but is it bad that I am old ehough to understand Ultrman takeoff

Posted by: Bayne | February 4, 2007 07:26 PM

OK, I'm a little slow - Garmin kicks map butt?

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 07:27 PM

Whatever.

Garmin ad would have been cooler if Godzilla and Mothra had killed the Mapasaurus.

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 07:27 PM

It is pouring buckets! Da Bears love this stuff!!!

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 07:28 PM

why is the first botched extra point in the books as a botched two point try?

Posted by: ks | February 4, 2007 07:28 PM

Words cannot describe that Chevy HHR ad.

OMG.

Posted by: Nigel | February 4, 2007 07:30 PM

This has been the most perverted set of commercials I've ever seen.

But that Carrerbuilder/lemmings commercial was great!

Posted by: Blackaces | February 4, 2007 07:30 PM

college chevy ad good doritos add bad

Posted by: | February 4, 2007 07:31 PM

Okay, FM made a decent commercial!

Love Coke's black history commercial - understated.

Dave and Oprah are still the best. And I'm staying up tomorrow to watch Dave and Dr. Phil.

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 07:40 PM

sorry, GM. It's hard to type and crochet you know.
