Happy Hour: Super Bowl Weekend Edition

hh-logo-stockSo by now many of you know what is going to happen tomorrow…but for those who don’t I will keep it a surprise as a reason to check in in the morning….Oddly enough, I am not talking about the Super Bowl, which just happens to be a little bit more than 48 hours away…although I am sure the hype will be in full effect starting tonight. I have not read one thing here today from all of our talented writers and prognosticaters…which is what makes Happy Hour so wonderful. I can sit here and through the magic of the interweb – read all the posts from one post. Amamzing…join me as I peruse the following posts Continue reading

GatorTrey’s Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials…

of MY era…That means I actually viewed these and remembered them, so please don’t jump on me for forgetting your “classics.” To me, Super Bowl commercials are hit or miss, but when they do hit I’m all over it.

There are like 10dy billion of these things on the internet, but this is the most legit list you’ll find (unlike that POS list SpikeTV put out…what has that guy watched like 10 Super Bowl commercials ever?) Lets start here though, any list that includes 4-5 BudLight commercials should be banned. Any commercial with Justin Timberlake, banned. Anyone who claims the Apple 1984 commercial is best ever, banned. Anyone who included a commercial featuring Spuds McKenzie, eh, I’ll give you it. Continue reading

The Odds-On Favorite: Super Bowl Pick

Sadly, she won't be smiling this weekend...

Sadly, she won't be smiling this weekend...

This is it. The last hurrah. The “Big Game”. The single reason why there will never be a Super Bowl held within the Las Vegas city limits. There’s just too much gambling to be done.

The Super Bowl is the biggest event of the year when it comes to money changing hands. So much money moved in the final quarter of last year’s Super Bowl, when the Patriots took the lead, then coughed it up to the Giants (in the process allowing a score in the final 2:00 of regulation) that some books had near riots break out.

This year, Sparty has demanded a full break down of every possible bet, but let’s be honest – you don’t want that. I printed out every prop bet available from Bodog – it was 84 pages long. What I can do is pick out a lucky 13 of the very best prop bets, money line bets, and straight up stupidity and offer you my take on all of it… after the jump.

The Morning After: January 30, 2009

The Morning AfterI am almost done being sick. I may go to work today – I may not.  Do you want to feel bad with me? Let the moaning and complaining begin as we get right to the links.  The reserves for the NBA All-Star game were announced last night, and people are upset.   Somehow the Magic are represented by 3 players, but the Cavs couldn’t get LeBron’s running mate, Mo Williams, as part of the team.

As was mentioned briefly yesterday, Andy Roddick lost to Roger Federer, again.  This time he was beat in straight sets, in the semis of the Austrailian Open.  Roddick was suppose to be the guy that followed Agassi and Sampras in the great line of American tennis players.  However, his career has been underwhelming since winning the 2003 US Open. Has Roddick disappointed?  Or did he just show up at the wrong time (Roger Federer).

David Wells would knock-out Joe Torre if they cross paths. Continue reading

Happy Hour: Barkeep, make it a triple…

7108happy-hour-club-postersWhew…busy day today.  Everybody seems to be pretty tied up with the jobs that pay the bills.  Who wants to go get a cold one with me? 

In the meantime, let’s holla holla back at what we talked about today…in third person. Continue reading
