You know, I could care a less about football.

What does that phrase mean anyways? I think it was originally, "I couldn't care any less" which makes a world of sense, but often people say "i could care less" which, obviously, they could, even if they really dug that which they were speaking about.

Anyhow... where was I? Oh yes football. (I'm going on so much, i'm going to have to change the name of this blog to JPTH!)

Anyhow, I couldn't find the quote, but somewhere, Quentin Tarintino described football as his idea of torture. He lemented that studios dictate that people couldn't sit through a film for more than 2 hours, and yet they are willing to sit through a football game for easily more than 3. He couldn't understand it. And neither can I. But you do miss out on some fine commercials.... so here... for the first time... Google video proudly presents, all the superbowl comercials, instant, big, and quick with no advertisments.

Well, other than the advertisements you are watching...of course.


Ah, found the quote:
"To me, torture would be watching sports on television. If I go to Dodger Stadium, that's ok, because the game is secondary to the beer and the environment. One thing I don't understand is that average American movie-goers cannot watch a movie for three hours, yet they'll watch a stupid, boring, horrific football game for four hours. Now, that is boredom at its most colossal. I have a lot of little theories, and one of them is that nobody really likes sports. But men feel they should like sports, so they act as if they do. I also feel that way about The Who. I don't think anybody really likes that band. Everyone thinks they're supposed to like The Who, so they just pretend. They're afraid to say that the emperor has no clothes."
~Quentin Tarantino

    Hey... was that a dig?

    The MAGIC FRIDGE is the best of the best! I stopped getting up during the commercials and instead got up during the game.
