Gotta Watch: Super Bowl edition

Baby cheeseheads – Being a true fan is a birthright. Just ask the babies born in the run-up to the big dance between the Pack and the Steel Nation. Couples can prove their loyalty with their virility in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and finally bring an answer to the age-old question, what makes better swaddling clothes, a "Terrible Towel" or a homemade cheesehead?

Born to win? – Superstitious Steeler fans may be urging one Pennsylvania couple to keep their romance alive. Keith and Amanda Davis were both born in Steeler Super Bowl win years, and their two oldest children were as well. And guess what? They had a third child this season! This family is not only populating their own little Steel Nation, but they also may be ushering their team toward victory one baby at a time!

Lingerie puppy bowl? – Conan manages to take two things that guys usually love–lingerie and puppies–and turn them into something completely ridiculous and awkward.

    Football in Packer nation is like religion, it starts at birth, you get a weekly dose every sunday (even off season) and you're threatened with eternal dangnation if you don't follow the faith.

    Excuse me, but the Packers colors are Green and Gold. There's no yellow in the Packers!

    The Steelers, on the other hand, are a different story.

    Cesar – I understand that you concede the Steelers colors including Yellow, because that's what they are.

    Green and Gold over Black and Yellow.

    Just unbelievable. For the past 4 years, all I have heard is complaints about the economy. No jobs, no money, no healthcare, no anything. How many BILLIONS of dollars are being wasted of this "Super Bowl?" Yes, I know, it does bring "some" jobs, but the fact people pay someone, MILLIONS of dollars a year, to throw a ball around, and will pay 9 bucks for a hot dog and 9 bucks for a beer, then complain if the teachers of this country ask for a raise, sickens me.

    Some drug influenced, "thug," of a criminal, who has a small amount of talent with football, makes millions. And people bow down to them, as if they were Jesus. A fireman, police officer, or paramedic, who saves thousands of lives a year, gets rocks thrown at them.

    People's priorities are completely out of whack.

      You said it yourself, "Billions" are being spent. Yes and it's all going into the economy, the people who have it are spending it.
      Now the worship thing I agree with. No one should bow down to anyone.

    This weekend's game will no doubt be an epic battle. Good luck to both teams! I grew up a Packer fan, but had my AFC team, which is the Steelers....of course I am pulling for the PACK, I mean come on......ARod, Driver, Woodson, Matthews, Jones, Wiliams, Hawk & Jennings....to name a few....we are proud of our boys just as Steeler nation is of theirs. However...Mr. Harrison...although you are a talented and a dedicated player, you also are one dirty playmaker. Keep it clean when you come for our guys....tackle them as you may (of course I hope NOT!!!!!), just keep it CLEAN.

      Give it up!! Harrison is no worse than any number of other hard hitting LBS in the league! The NFL needed to make an example of someone to scare the rest of the league into bowing down to their ridiculous new rules and they picked Harrison because he is feared, he hits hard, and he's famous after his career season in 2008. I saw numerous other hits throughout the season that were WORSE than any of Harrison's that went unpenalized. He's not a dirty player; ne was the chosen scapegoat. That said, I hope he breaks Aaron Rodgers in half!

    Again, CNN, what's with the Conan? Is there a lack of other intriguing videos for you to post? Or, is it that you just want to push your Turner fueled agenda on the populace?

    WIz Kalifa is whack! It's NOT Black and Yellow! It's Black and GOLD! Been Black and Gold since the 60s.

    I don't hate on people who make $. In all reality the players should make a reasonable amount with how much money is being made by the team and the NFL. What bothers me is the apparent lack of opportunity for the average joe (the guy buying the tickets) to make some decent coin for a hard day's work. I worship no man and don't really have a pick in this year's game. I just want to see a good game and relax for a bit. As far as the inequality in pay for the job provided goes I'd agree, but the rich cannot sustain their wealth among themselves. They need the working stiff to buy their products more than the working stiff needs their products. None of the elites would last a week doing real work which is why they avoid creating any real industry. Just watch the game and have fun. I always laugh at these people who pay $900 for a parking spot close to the stadium. It's pathetic. The reason a hot dog costs $9.00 is because the vendor needs a license and probably some health department certification on top of paying the stadium for the privilege of selling your product at the game. Really most people just lack start up money for their business or you'd see more rich people.
