    By request here ya go. Post everything from food/recipes and the halftime show to what you'll be doing.

    Halftime Show. What halftime show? Instead of getting better they get worse with each passing year. Almost as bad as watching the Pro Bowl. Which I did not do. Nope.

    Heres the half-time show I would like to see -

    The lights go dark for about 10 seconds, the crowd starts quieting down. Then Chariots of Fire starts slowly playing through the loud speakers. A spotlight starts dim and slowly brightens. On the stage is Aaron Rodgers and a referee. Rodgers is wearing a dunce cap. For the next twenty minutes, he practices calling a coin toss while Chariots of Fire plays on a loop. The crowd is going wild. Rodgers grins wildly at the crowd at the conclusion. Then his handler comes on stage, gives him a dog biscuit and pats him on the head and escorts him off. The crowd cheers triumphantly.

    As it stands right at this moment, there will be no Super Bowl in Las Vegas. Cox and our CBS affiliate are continuing their pissing match and CBS is no longer on the air in households served by COX. That's 48% of the homes in town. Best Buy is sold out of HDTV antennas, leading one to think that COX is about to experience some extreme backlash.

    I'll be in Louisville for work, so I'm going to head down a day early and find a sports bar to camp out at until game time. Fortunately they have a pretty good group of uber drivers there.

    I'm just here for the Puppy Bowl... my money is on Timber the yellow lab. Git 'em!

    My sister is doing her annual party. In previous years I've made a metric shit-ton of hot wings or bratwurst, but for some reason I feel like being lazy this year and just bringing a 55-gallon drum of cheese balls. Something like that.

    There are also some parts of the country where Cox is going all digital starting on, you guessed it, February 7. So, if you have any TV's that are direct input from the cable without a receiver or mini-receiver box, your signal will not work.

    Also, you don't need a special HD antenna to receive free over-the-air CBS on your HD TV. You can use regular old rabbit ears and even a simple stick antenna if you're close enough to the transmitter. Clear HD signal. The only difference is that older TV's that cannot process digital (not HD, different thing) signals vs the old analog signal. You'll need a converter box to change a digital signal to work on your old analog TV.

    Usually I use the rabbit ears for the Super Bowl, but this year I don't have to even do that. CBS is live streaming the game on its website for free, so if you have Chromecast (as I do) or something similar you can simply stream it from your laptop/tablet onto your TV.

    Some livestreaming requires you to indicate who your satellite or cable provider is and then log in. Is that the case here? I imagine Cox would shut that out, too. Also, isn't the Super Bowl like the most watched live event? I will be very impressed if the servers aren't constantly crashing.

    All of the CBS playoff games to this point have been free, just click on it and it plays. Although I could easily see servers crashing now that you mention it...

    Sweet. Free is like, my favorite.

    And, because you people wouldn't do the work for me, I had to Google this myself. Phew. You're welcome.

    Our neighbors have invited us to a Super Bowl party. Our neighbors are Persian. They are very nice people and always have very good food. Kabobs have been promised - chicken, ground beef and lamb. Yum.

    But, no one in their extended family (all of whom are also invited) knows a fucking thing about American football. Consequently I will be spending the entire game explaining what's going on. Sigh.

    On the plus side, you get to hang out with gorgeous Persian women, hopefully.

    I knew some Persian girls and they were jaw dropping hot.

    I imagine you could make a fun road trip to a non-shitty city using some of your vacation time you stock up on like novelty baseball cards. Good excuse to get a cheap hotel room in a cool place and enjoy the weekend.

    Would it really matter though? When I did the CBS thing they didn't ask for anything at all(no cable provider, internet provider etc.), it just played like a Youtube video.

    A fine plan except for the fact that Vegas is 300 miles from anywhere, making for a 600 mile road trip to a city I'll hate just as much to watch a football game on TV involving two teams I don't give a shit about.

    I thought your ideal place to live was in the middle of nowhere?

    Find motel in the desert (shouldn't be that hard) that gets the game and give the inbred dude who runs it a pack of marlboro reds to look the other way while you target practice at the moon during halftime.

    I am strongly considering playing http://www.lastman.us/ . Basically, it's a twitter game where you try to last as long as you can without knowing the winner of the Super Bowl. Based on the honor system and the only prize is pride. Some people last only a few minutes, but I personally know the all-time record holder who one year went an entire year. I told my wife about it yesterday and I know if she tells any of her brothers, they'll surely fuck it up for me.

    Pahrump isn't far. I'm sure the Chicken Ranch will have the game on. And if they don't you probably won't care.
