    So not only do I not see the fight happening any time soon, I honestly don't see it happening at all. Mayweather has more money than he knows what to do with. I just can't see him coming out of retirement to fight someone who could very, very well beat him. The only other reason for him to fight, would be his pride. And right now he can talk all he wants because he is the "champ". I assume he keep it at that.

    That's what I thought too until recently. Now I'm all confused by the news. Sounds like a 50/50 chance at this point.. hope it happens. Would love to see that fight.

    Fun story. Brought up some childhood memories of my own, but I was never really into racing when I was a kid. Only football, and only then just the NFL.

    So I don't have a long history of watching, but I did watch last year's race. (was my first to watch in full). Super close finish, Hamlin coming in from 4th to win by a 1-100th of a second. That was pretty awesome. I still have a hard time caring the whole entire race. But the end of a long race is just as exciting as any sport to me now, if you have anything invested in the outcome. I'm a fan now.

    Never happened before. They have already released the top 16 teams for the NCAA tournament, in season. Why? Does anyone know? Not that I think it's a bad thing, just curious.. Here's a video on it:

    Interesting. Well the Patriots are a 3 point favorite right now. Would be a good bet to go for the Falcons.

    Sounds like legal action is about to happen over this:

    "GNC was proud and excited to launch our Courage to Change campaign during the Super Bowl, one of the biggest platforms of the year,” said a statement from Jeff Hennion, GNC’s executive vice president, chief marketing & e-commerce officer. “However, only six days prior, and after two approval processes, Fox Broadcasting informed us that our company and our message of inspirational true stories was not permitted to air due to NFL policy. In turn, GNC has retained legal counsel and is in the process of preparing a formal complaint with Fox Broadcasting Company.”

    There are a handful of good ones I've seen so far. This is one of my favorites, the one with Einstein playing Lady Gaga:

    Hyundai's Super Bowl commercial will be filmed after kickoff

    First time I'm aware of this happening. This year's Hyundai super bowl ad will be filmed as the game is playing. And it won't air until right after the game ends.

    Supposed to feature 3 military guys, hooked up to VR gear and watching the game in real time. Hyundai says they will be in '360-degree immersive pods that will make them feel as if they are in a luxury box at NGR Stadium'. The ad will show their reactions. Pretty cool idea.

    Roger Federer vs Raphael Nadal AND Serena Williams vs Venus Williams?!? Usually a grand lucks out with either the men's or women's finals being stacked. But I have never seen both like this before. Is this the best final four showcasing in tennis' grand slam tournament history?

    Good article from SB on this.

    .. thought it was interesting how similar the Falcons and Pats offensive numbers were today:

    Matt Ryan - 27/38 for 392 yards and 4 TDs. (Also 3 carries for 23 yards and a TD). No picks.
    Tom Brady - 32/42 for 384 yards and 4 TDs. (4 carries for -1 yards) No picks either.

    Those are both monster games. Great games. Further evidence they deserve to play in the super bowl. Also, even stranger that their top receivers tied exactly with huge games too:

    Julio Jones - 9 catches for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns
    Chris Hogan - 9 catches for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns

    Both teams also controlled time of possession. Neither team turned the ball over. All signs point to a shoot out.

    It's set. Pats won by 19. Falcons by 23. Being both the best offenses in the league, with underrated defenses, I think they deserved to be in the super bowl the most this year. So since my Cowboys missed out, I'm looking forward to this as a really good consolation game, that should be really good.

    So both teams score a lot. Both teams have solid defenses. Both teams can run and throw at will. And either Ryan or Brady will be the league MVP.. Who wins this one? Curious on people's takes on this matchup.

    I think the Patriots defense and Belichick's scheming game plan might prove too much for Atlanta. The Falcons offense is better. But only slightly. And the Pats defense is better, but only slightly. So it will come down to qb play, turnovers, and coaching. Unfortunately for Atlanta, New England bests them in all of these categories, usually.

    Saying that, I really want the Falcons to win. And I do think it will be very close. Julio Jones can put them over the top. And they are lucky they don't have to see Gronk in this one.
