up when it's over. oh it's over?? thank god.. oh it's over?? thank god.. because it was the dullest, lowest scoring superbowl in history. if you stopped watching cuz you had something better to do... like organize your sock drawer.. the patriots beat the rams 13 -3. let's look at the highlight.. ( darya ) this was the highlight of the game.. the commercial showing how exciting the nfl is.. this is
the game i wanted to see! with marshawn lynch and richard sherman... with all the nfl greats.. peyton manning throwing bombs..obj going long.. chairs flying and tables breaking.. but we now interrupt this commercial break.. to bring you back to the boring reality: first quarter nothin. second quarter: three-nothin. third quarter 3-3..somebody make it stop! and finally the patriots did: with 7 minutes left in the game, they scored the one and only touchdown. i know if you are a lover of the game.. it was a brilliant defensive display... a coaching masterpiece.. but even the winners know it was a dud.. julian edleman sounds almost apologetic: easy for you today julian.. you got mvp and tommy got his 6th ring. i will never get back those 3 and half hours.
even the halftime show was uninspired. maro 5 playing snippets of songs from 17 years ago.. even when adam levine took his shirt off, i didn't perk up. the most exciting moment was when big boi rolled up on the field in a classic cadillac.. and i thought about how many fans would love to head for the parking lot. take me away big-boy! for the first time, i was happy to be the only grown up who has to go to bed at 7:30.. cuz i knew i wasn't missing anything good. .

the warriors.. they played the lakers sans lebron saturday night.. guess his groin wasn't as good as he thought.. but golden state sure was! the warriors beat l-a thanks to steph curry's 4th quarter rally. whatever ailed klay thompson was gone he poured in 28 points.. boogie chipped in 18 including a massive hammer dunk. k-d added 21. and the warriors have a thrilling comeback victory 115-101. now that's entertainment! and that's the buzz. we'll see you tomorrow.
