The game might have passed by Britney Spears, but these eyes will always view her in the same light as Kurt Warner. Sure, she might not be what she once was; her confidence might be shaken; she has a bad spouse and yeah, she might fumble a kid here and there. (Who hasn't?) But for a glorious three-year run, she was on top of the world. A fact that cannot be challenged even if she made another eight seasons of Chaotic.
So go ahead and make fun of her if you will, but remember this. The divorce from Brenda Federline only means that she is going to be getting back into the game. And you know what that means—a Playboy spread is coming soon. Oh yeah, laugh it up now, but you know you will be the first in line to buy that issue.
Now leading into Super Bowl XLIII the KWM is at the top of the world, and Britney is back in her Toxic-hot phase.
BTW, this is probably THN's favorite Britney photo. But this is a family site.
Let's talk about the game!
Probably the most annoying story of Super Bowl week is Larry Fitzgerald Sr. Wow, some sports writer's son is playing in the Super Bowl. Do any of you, not in the business, actually care about this angle? No. But for the vast majority of sports writers who like to print stories of their daughter's high school softball games, this is big news.
Will Larry Sr. be objective? Will he cheer in the press box? Will he eat nachos or pop corn during the game? The answer is both. He's a sports writer, right?
Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has easily surpassed Jerome Bettis is from Detroit as the most annoying story in Super Bowl history. And you would think that Warner would be the biggest story of the week. But even that has taken a back burner. Only because his dad isn't a sports writer.
- If you get a chance, check out the debate over who will be the unlikely hero.
- Hines Ward knee also became a tiresome story this week. But expect him to pull the LaDainian Tomlinson. Might has well fit him with a colored visor so he can sulk on the sidelines.
Now comes time for the pick. And if you think The Hater Nation is picking the Cardinals, you are absolutely correct. The Steelers are a great team. The defense is awesome. And this game will likely be one of those 17-13 tilts.
A lot of times they are.
The Cardinals will find a way to win this game. The Panthers and Eagles were supposed to have overpowering defenses that would slow down the Cardinals. But they couldn't. Not even on the East Coast -- where the Cardinals never win. (Surprised that angle hasn't surfaced again.)
Warner showed in the NFC Championship Game that he can make the play to win the game. He also did it in Super Bowl XXXIV. Take Warner to be the MVP -- even if he honestly doesn't deserve it.
Hey, the Football Gods owe us for giving us back-to-back Manning wins.
