These Guys LOVE the Patriots

In the media firestorm that's come to be known as Deflategate, it's become pretty clear that the New England Patriots are the most hated football team in the NFL.

But there's still plenty of people who love this team and its players.

Like these guys, who stepped up on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to take the hit for letting the air out of those footballs.

Each one of them claims to be "the locker room guy" responsible for letting the air out of the balls.

Wait. Do a couple of these guys look familiar...?

The Snow Never Bothered Them Anyway

A bona fide blizzard hit Boston and the Northeast this week, and there was an awful lot of complaining.

But there was no complaining at the New England Aquarium, where some of the residents took full advantage of the snow day.

Check out this video of some fur seals having an absolute blast with the weather.

And check out the Marine Mammal Trainers blog for more info and some super cute pix.

Ted 2 On the Way

Seth MacFarlane is back, people!

A couple of years ago, his movie about a teddy bear that came to life earned the distinction of being "the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time." That's according to comingsoon.net, and why would they lie?

On June 26, Ted 2 will hit the theaters, and the trailer for it hit the internet yesterday.

Mark Wahlberg is back as Ted's best friend, and Morgan Freeman is part of the cast.

Morgan. Freeman.

In a movie about a talking teddy bear.

Now you want to see it too, don't you?

Here's the trailer...

"Get Out of Here, You Low-Life Scum"

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger arrived at a Senate hearing yesterday chaired by Senator John McCain.

As the 91-year-old Kissinger took his seat, a group of protestors rose from theirs and started chanting, "Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes."

They did it in a sort of sing-song way, but it really missed the mark.

Kissinger didn't even seem to notice. Could be years of practice, could be that he's 91.

But McCain did, and ordered the police officers in the room to remove the protestors.

And as they were led out, McCain delivered the verbal coup de gras: "Get out of here, you low-life scum."

Tell it like it is, Senator!

Captain America Vs. Guardian of the Galaxy!

Chris Evans is Captain America. He's a fan of the New England Patriots. Something to do with the red, white and blue, perhaps?

Chris Pratt is a Guardian of the Galaxy. He favors the Seattle Seahawks.

And for the past two weeks, the Captain and the Guardian have been at war. On Twitter, anyway.

There have been wagers about who will do what if the other's team wins. But with their last tweets, the pair upped the ante with some back and forth images.

First, this one from Chris Pratt, showing Patriots QB Tom Brady feasting on some sort of bird...
Followed by this one from Chris Evans, showing Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in a different sort of uniform... Personally, I hope the bantering goes on long after the game is done.

Will This Be Katy Perry's Halftime Song?

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took the stage during media week leading up to the Super Bowl because he was obligated to do so.

But I guess he didn't think he was obligated to say anything, because the answer to every question was a variation on "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

It was pretty funny to watch, but the NFL didn't think so. They're considering whacking him with a huge fine.

So what are they going to do to Katy Perry, the Big Game's halftime performer, who used the same line in a pre-Super Bowl interview?

Check out this mashup of Marshawn and Katy saying the same thing over and over.

If someone sets this to music, we're talking straight to the top of the charts.

Katy could sing it during halftime.

I wonder if the NFL would let Marshawn out of the locker room for a few minutes to make it a duet?

"Lost Dog" Overcomes Obstacles

Budweiser released their 2015 Super Bowl commercial yesterday. At this writing, "Lost Dog" has already had over 8 million views on YouTube.

The little puppy gets into a horse trailer at the Clydesdale ranch, and gets driven away.

Not to worry - he escapes in the city, and finds his way home, overcoming all obstacles.

Wait, what's that behind the tree, with his home within sight?

Is it a wolf? Uh oh...

You can watch the rest on your own...

Except for the presence of the Clydesdales and the Budweiser cap on the guy who runs the place, I'm not really sure what this has to do with beer, but that's probably not all that important...

 

And for a little extra fun, check out this short clip that shows you some behind-the-scenes footage of the puppies used in this spot.

Freedom Summit, Revisited

Last weekend, a group of Republicans descended on Iowa for a Freedom Summit.

It was an opportunity for some of the folks who would love to run the good ol' USA to strut their stuff in front of some folks who might like to see one of them run the good ol' USA.

And a wonderful opportunity for Jon Stewart and The Daily Show to provide deep comic analysis of the event.

Mike Huckabee was there. So was Ted Cruz. And Rick Perry, and Donald Trump too.

And the cream on the Freedom Cupcake - former vice-presidential candidate, former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin.

Who somehow, at the end of Jon's analysis, morphed into Matthew McConaughey. And I did not see that coming...

Not Your Typical Teddy Bear

The Vermont Teddy Bear Company makes all sorts of seasonal pitches for you to get a special teddy bear for the one you love.

They're especially popular around Valentine's Day. (Heads up, guys, it's about two weeks away!).

This year, the folks at VTBC are really putting some sizzle in the game, with the new Fifty Shades of Grey Bear.

No, really. It looks like it's an official tie-in with Fifty Shades of Grey - maybe you've heard that the movie is coming out on Valentine's Day? (Heads up, guys, it's about two weeks away!)

Check out the web page. The ad copy is pretty good: "He features smoldering gray eyes, a suit and silk tie, mask – even mini handcuffs."

And in case you're wondering, no, it's not suitable for children, because it has small parts.

Says it right at the bottom of the page.

Cuz nothin' says "I love you!" more than the Bondage Bear!

Watch Out, Cupid!

Cupid's well-known for his archery skills.

But after watching this video, I'll bet Cupid puts in for retirement.

Denmark's Lars Anderson has spent his life studying and perfecting the art of archery, and has been clocked shooting three arrows - accurately too - in 1.52 seconds.

That's faster than you can read the phrase "1.52 seconds."

Watch what this guy can do - it really is amazing.

Then send a nice Hallmark card to Cupid to cheer him up...
